Why dont you post the original link, and not the one on your youtube channel with your title? Shamelessly stealing the work of others to get views. As the poster above said, please stop.

It will be the same as the Caravan: Boring but economical. It will start off doing pavement to pavement, but then will steadily get more and more capable and bury the twin otter in all but the most specialized places. To be honest, the Twin Otter is a great airplane, unfortunately it's niche, is alm...

Re: Extended furlough and going back up North

Personally, I wouldn't hire a furloughed airline pilot without a really hefty non-prorated bond. It was hard enough to keep 1000 hour pilots for more than a year, and I know that the second the call comes in you're gone with as much notice as you can give, which could be very little. To top it all o...

There are better ways to make money during a layoff than click-bait youtube links to videos that don't include any of your own content. Do us all a favor and stop posting links to your own youtube / call center. Or if you insist on posting links, at least make them original, interesting, factual and...

Re: Air Tindi Flight Missing

Condolences to all those affected. This is one of the more harrowing reports I've read recently. It seems they broke out at about 2000agl and attempted a recovery, but with a descent rate of 34,000'/min were unable to recover at that point (about 4 seconds to act). Reading this has got me thinking a...

By our own airplane, I mean a King Air, not sure if that matters. And you'll have to talked to the company to get the details on how or why that is possible.

They have an airplane to do it, or you can use your own to save some money. There will be an initial price, and then an annual fee as well.

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

It's been a while, but I seem to recall you can write the exams at half the hours of validity. So for example ATPLs can be written at 750hrs.

I'm pretty sure about the 250hr thing for the IATRA, unless things have changed in the last 15 years or so.

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

The difference between 200 and 500 is 2 months of busy flying. Get to 250, so that your IATRA can be valid, and make sure you have the 25 night PIC cross country, and if you can swing it 100 total night. Once this is all said in done, it'll be back to some sort of normality where it is NOT the norm ...

Re: Question regarding, manifests, airlines and regulations. Boarded a plane, fell asleep and missed my stop

Yes, legally speaking maybe the weight and balance was off by 220lbs, however, I suspect that:

If you use standard weights on an atr size aircraft, you're already off by more than 220lbs.

And, I don't think the aircraft performance wise or C of G position wise, will care about 220lbs in row 7C.
