Re: Corona Virus

Some years ago there was a guy, really good stick, could fly circles around most folks here. His communication methods may have been a bit rough around the edges but he really knew the airplanes inside and out. He got banned for life for being rough around the edges in communication styles.

Re: Corona Virus

Scientists respond to new information and are constantly challenging what they know. They learn, as opposed to pulling nuggets out of their ass and calling it knowledge. I’ll take what they say every time even if it ends up the same as what some dumpster diver said two weeks ago. "Until this week, ...

Re: Pilot leaves towbar on runway??

And only completely negligent people have to go double check, and triple check things that were on the first check list (walk around). If you didn't catch it the first time, then maybe you need to haul out the walk around checklist and start over. Then I suggest pilots of light aircraft consider th...

Re: Corona Virus

So is your position that they are unaware of your suggestions and don’t understand the science as well as you do? Or do they know about it and choose another path for political reasons? Or something else? I really can't tell you if 'they' (I will assume this to be the politicians in power in Canada...

Who knows, maybe the missing fuel cap would have been noticed - or maybe it wouldn't have been. Nevertheless, if one does not panic and tighten a turn at low level; leading to a stall/spin...

Re: Pilot leaves towbar on runway??

Sure, it could be possible that between the time you did your DI/walkaround and when you yawned, readjusted your nuts, and loaded your oversized flight bag into the aeroplane that a mud dauber could have blocked the pitot tube. Or, an errant baggage cart could position itself in front of an engine....

Fox news is not reality. Reality isn't "fair and balanced". There are not two sides to the story. There is fact and there is fiction.
