Re: Favourite Type

Piper Arrow. Cheap, fast, stable, and better than any Cessna single I have had the experience flying. Although I will add that there is no graceful way to get out of any Cherokee. Tuck and roll off the wing seems quite effective though. :wink:

Re: stolen float plane

https://globalnews.ca/news/6578962/vancouver-police-investigating-attempted-seaplane-theft-that-left-several-aircraft-damaged/ I presume the Beaver wing was removed after tangling with the Otter, not somehow sheared clean off? Sheared clean off indeed. I'm sure she'll fly again though. This is cras...

Re: Circling Apporaches. Where did they go?

There has been an AIC running with a heads up on this since last March including where they would not be removed: Link to AIC 10/19 I guess this is also probably tied to the NAVAID modernization plan where a lot of the old NDBs that are at or approaching the end of their life-cycle will be decommiss...

Re: New NOTAM website - old site withdrawn

A call/email to NAV CANADA customer service now and then re-iterating how bad the new system is will help too. I'm sure they are aware of it but all the calls will be logged, I'm sure. Over time, if not already obvious, they will see that it's not serving the intended target audience in any good way.

Devils advocate time. Imagine both were NORDO and the winds were calm. In such a scenario both pilots would have flown opposite downwinds and ended up head to head.

. Not every aviation issue should be solved by more engines, more crew, more radios, more checklists and more regulations.
Are you sure?

Common sense seems to have disappeared.

Re: VTA Changes

There is a VFR chart updating data section in part C Planning of the CFS. It's my understanding that all changes to VFR charts are published there until the charts themselves can be updated.

You guys (and gals) have it all wrong.

Firemen are now firefighters.

Therefore, Airmen should now be referred to as Airfighters.

Re: Navcanada discontinuing approaches at under-serviced airports

Are the provincial medevac authorities being squeezed for money by NavCanada? How can Nav Canada "squeeze" anyone for money. The whole organization runs on user fees. By act of parliament they can't make a profit. All they are capable of doing is determining where the money goes (and doesn't go any...

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

Get rid of your celphone and get a landline. People lived that way for a very long time. I know for a millennial its daunting just to imagine doing so, but "Flight Safety" depends on it! Not anywhere near millennial age and (thankfully) got rid of my landline 15 years ago...I love generalizations.
