Re: Near collision at Brampton

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. Hopefully they would notice one another before anything happens but if not...yikes. I am still in awe that we allow NORDO at some airp...

. 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.

Strange there were fatalities, as it looks relatively intact / survivable.

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.

I think the pilot was thinking of hydraulic lock which only happens with downward facing pistons like the bottom one on a radial engine, not a horizontally opposed engine...but I'm no mechanic.

Re: Jazz Dash 8 and Menzies Fuel Truck Collide in YYZ

How did hit the plane all over like that? Jazz taxing to fast. If they'd taxi at 7 kts or less like I do it wouldn't have happen. No different than the Toronto yahoos going 100 km/hr on 401. Cut speed to 50 and be less accidents and lower insurance premiums. If you've ever held an AVOP (airside veh...
