What does that mean? They are bound by very strict procedures and phrase-ology guidelines. If they stray from these they get penalized for it, even if it's minor.

Re: Another Midair Near Ottawa

"The pilot of the Cessna saw the Champion aircraft impact the water, flew a few orbits..." not sure if I would have done the same not knowing what sort of condition my aircraft was in right after a mid air.

Just stay clear of the Rockcliffe zone and you'll be fine. No real procedure.

Fuel is probably cheaper a CYSH to the southwest.

Re: New Challengers for DND?

The 2 remaining (of 4 originally purchased) CL-601s that 412 are operating are 34 years old. It's probably time to replace them. They added 2 new CL-604s to the fleet in 2002 to replace one CL-601 that was written off in an accident and another that was to be retired recently and has since been put ...

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

I think trying to use the Hawks or Harvard IIs might be difficult because the somewhat unusual operating agreement they were acquired under. They are owned by the government but leased to a third party, CAE, for the NFTC program.

There was a better video on FB, for sure the prop was still turning as it taxied to the shoulder. Wonder if it could maintain power.
There is a video I saw where it was trailing a bit of smoke...so guessing that it might not have been able to.

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: 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Re: New NOTAM website - old site withdrawn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.

. 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.

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.

Strange there were fatalities, as it looks relatively intact / survivable.
I think all of the fatalities were up front. There's no flight deck area left.
