Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

Hello, My boss owns a "non aviation" incorporated business in Alberta. He wants to buy a Cessna 210 for business travel. The plane would be registered under his corporation. He wants me to fly it for him. I would mostly transport my boss, other executives, and maybe their family members. None of th...

Re: What are the three biggest reasons for floatplane crashes

All shared the same deafness to advice, an inflated sense of their flying skills and questionable judgement. Everybody can see an accident on the horizon, and no amount of well meaning intervention seems to do any good. I know, because we tried... That is so true. A little while ago we had an accid...

Re: The Importance of Seat Height in Initial Flight Training

I agree with BPF in teaching it right the first time.

We all know a shorter pilot who sits ridiculously low because that's the way they did it in a C172.

Boeing put some thought into correct seat position as well.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I think the single most important piece of information we just learned is being overlooked. AC has spoken clearly on their intentions. Something we have been waiting for. They could have walked. They didn’t. They wanted a better price of course, but they still want the acquisition. The pandemic has...

Re: Porter Problems

Wow! I have to say I'm a little bit shocked, but I guess we could ask Canada 3000 and air Ontario pilots how it worked out for them. 🤔 I’m not sure I understand how the problems Porter pilots are having right now are similar to Canada 3000 and Air Ontario. Canada 3000 shut it doors, with no warning...

Re: Bill Morneau resigns

I guess we could run this thing in circles all day .. the one factor that remains true is we have a PM with 2 ethics violations and a third on the way. That’s true. And I’m one of the swing voters who decides who actually changes things in this country rather than blindly sticking to binary politic...

Re: Flight centre behavior

Sounds like you got the "regular dual lesson" you were talked into.

I would not invest too much energy in worrying about one hour wasted before you have even started training.

Re: A220 cruising altitude

Seems to be happening to new engines only. These engines are built to such tight tolerances that anything slightly out can cause an issue. Once the engines seem to get some time on them and “loosen up” they seem ok. It’s a combination software and hardware fix. Word is maybe the fix will be approve...
