Re: Check the Ramp for Leaking oil After post Maintenance Run-up

I mostly change my own oil. I start the airplane, and after 5 mins shut it down, get out, look, wipe bottom of oil filter with finger to check for leaks, I then restart the airplane and fly one or 2 circuits, i then shut it down again, if it has no leaks I am NOW good to go. I am not comfortable rea...

Re: Piper Aztec E normally aspirated

Thanks. sincerely. I do hope to get an E model POH eventually , I am not sure but I think it has a different horizontal stab than the F and is a bit faster. This will get me started on systems etc. I think the word is they rarely do book speed.... THis POH is beautiful for printing! nice and clear.....

Re: Favorite Aviation Movie?

Battle of Britain was made in the 60's. It used real airplanes for the most part. Its a great "love in" for the WW 2 planes. Dunkirk has some spitfire love in it. The Blue Max also had lots of "real" flying in it. I guess I just want to look at the planes . Those magnificent men ...

Re: New landing fees at CYTZ

The only part I take a bit of exception to is the 0645-0659 and the 2200- 2300 The airport is open until 2300 tripling the fees after 10 is kinda rude I know they are trying to discourage evening flights. but the gardiner expwy right next door has no "closed from 11pm -0700" and no toll fr...

Re: Landing fee at CYOS

Toronto, tml and ctr are great and always are, YTZ YYZ are great. Lots of us from "not around ottawa" fail to call in to get a vfr code for terminal. They will give you one half the time. Now that they plan to lay a bunch of controllers across the country off, I do not blame them one bit f...

Re: Small Plane Hits Tower

I know of several folks living in Germany, that keep planes in canada and / or US and come over a few times a year to have a flying holiday. Germany is def not GA friendly. One can pay more for runway lights ,landing fees, and ATC for a 300 mile flight than you do for fuel! and fuel is not cheap... ...

Re: TBM Icing analysis video.

He could have flown south at 4500 or 6500 feet a few hundred miles (an hour?) in VFR! conditions. There was no pressing need to get up high other than saving fuel, as it was a turboprop. I am often boggled by the refusal to fly vfr when thunderstorms and or ice are present. It does not make you a le...
