I think that with our letter support groups such as COPA and AOPA there will be less chance of this happening on this side of the pond. There is much more of a collective voice over here.

Re: Small Plane Hits Tower

I thought, based on the title, that you meant radio tower out in the middle of nowhere. They hit the frikin control tower! This happened a couple of months ago.

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.

Re: Ottawa VFR Sightseeing

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.

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:
