Re: Owner Maintenance Question

The biggest issue I have purchasing an OM aircraft is having confidence in the last owner who maintained it. I would certainly have some lengthy conversations to get an idea if the work was up to snuff.

Re: Boeing Max.

The answer has nothing to do with outstanding orders or how long a replacement would take to come online. The answer is whether the public will fly on it again. If enough people refuse to book a trip on one the model will be cancelled. If it costs $300 for a ticket from A-B on a Max and $320 on an ...

Re: Door Opening Caused Accident

You're not a Cherokee pilot officially till you've had the door pop open in flight. Non-event, just a bit noisy. There is only 1 way to get it to close again in flight - side slip into the wind and pop the little window open to create suction as you latch it.

Re: Pulling that CB could come back to haunt you

I like aircraft where you have a physical indication of gear position. The Arrrow I flew had a mirror, the Comanche I fly has the lever in the cockpit.

Re: Do you really trust your POH performance numbers

I had the prop redone on the Cherokee - "0" timed. The previous 2 inspections were done signed off by a small AME but it looked pretty rough so I sent to the prop shop. It was worth every penny, and wish I'd done it 3 years previous. I gained 5mph cruise and about 150ft/min climb. I would have saved...

Re: Do you really trust your POH performance numbers

I recently tested myself in a 172 vs book numbers. I was considering going into a fairly short private strip with an obstacle at 1 end on a hot/humid day. I did much better than they experienced in that video with only about 10-15% over book numbers, but the margin was too slim for my comfort and op...

I think the settings are dependent on the version of Android your device runs. No "silent" on my wife's phone but I could turn them off completely.

Re: Lawyer or no lawyer?

The problem with airplanes is you have to search in every province to be absolutely sure there is no lean against it. Generally search the one it is registered in and you should be OK. Maybe if it was recently moved from another province check there. I recall it cost me $20 to do online in Ontario.

Re: Careful getting fuel in Thunder Bay

I've heard/read that before. Apparently you can park on apron 2 for $20/day. I believe there is also an Esso somewhere on site you can call over for fuel too. Worth calling ahead in the North to check these things out. Copa - Places to fly is another good resource but often dated info.
