Re: Classic Dash replacement??

Not sure if someone (or I) posted this already a while ago but De-Havilland has explored a shrunken DHC400. Same engines just de-rated (lower operating costs) so lower fuel burn and reduced engine wear but commonality with parts and type rating. https://skiesmag.com/news/de-havilland-contemplates-s...

Re: Pre-departure COVID-19 testing and negative results to be required for all air travelers coming to Canada

Band-aid solution. Like a person who received a negative test couldn't catch the virus during the 72 hours after the fact.... not to mention that the PCR test seemingly coughs up (pardon the pun) more false positives than actual ones.... If he wanted to be serious about it, he'd pull a New Zealand ...

Re: Instructor taking control

What parts are outdated? Arguably, slide rules, and less arguably, the assumption that GPS is unreliable, for starters. I would agree with you about the Wiz Wheel. There are so many different apps, computer programs and flight calculators now that the chances of one of them not working and you havi...

Re: Instructor taking control

Completely agree. It should also be noted that our almighty documents such as the FIG and FTM are quite outdated. Things have changed quite a bit since then, and it is upsetting that we don't have anything new to review. The world is different since the 90's, our manuals should be too :D What parts...

Re: What do you wish you had learned before beginning flight training?

What do you wish you had learned before beginning flight training? How important it was to get an experienced flight instructor (not Class 4) and stay with that person for as much of the training as possible (have 1 back up instructor too). When you are comparing flight training costs at different s...

Re: Airside mischief, fuel tank filled with water

Intentionally interfering with an aircraft like that from a period of 24 hours before to 24 hours after an intended flight is covered in the Canada criminal code as a terrorist offence with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. Something to think about. Weird Why does 24 hours matter. particularl...

Re: Service Suspension Notice

Chorus is in the process of entertaining proposals for a buy-out, they may want to exit the CPA altogether and focus on other types of flying. AC has NO need for e175s - therefore no need for sky. Chorus has had 1 unsolicited offer with significant conditions attached. This offer is likely low (as ...

Re: V1 in small twins

Another thing to think about if you choose to land after lift off is the flap setting. The recommended or approved flap setting for take off can be very different from the landing flap setting. The stall angle of attack in the flare may also be very different than what you are used to.

Unsolicited offer = hostile takeover... I’m sure CHR management is fighting for their lives to keep the vultures at bay, for everyone at CHR/Jazz I hope they succeed.
Not necessarily. What if they were offering $8 a share?

Re: Nanchang CJ-6 down in Victoria BC

Does it really matter? Minimal damage. No one hurt. Picking it apart Is a bit unnecessary. If I had to skid my plane in, I would be more than a little put out to read all the computer Captains sitting, back, relaxing, and second guessing me. Looks to me that he did a darn good job after finding him...

You could own a small part of WestJet if you bought Onex stock, but I think WJ is only a small part of the Onex business.

Re: Canada not ruling out stake in Canadian airlines...

Our airlines are privately owned, not taxpayer owned and should stay that way. IF any are meant to survive this pandemic they most certainly will. IF any are meant to fail, they likely will. That's free market capitalism and the government should navigate any decision to bail it out with caution. J...

Re: Nanchang CJ-6 down in Victoria BC

The winds were Slightly favouring RWY 21, by about only 20 degrees. See the attached METAR from CYYJ at the time of incident at around 1900 ZULU. Maybe he also chose RWY 21 as a courtesy to Victoria International (CYYJ) to reduce the possibility of impact on the airport operation. Had he chosen to ...

Re: Nanchang CJ-6 down in Victoria BC

Although the pilot did a great job getting the plane on the ground with minimal damage and no injuries, the fact that the aircraft slid off the end of the runway caught my eye on this one. I don't know what this pilot did, but this is what I would be thinking about if I was in this situation. First ...

Yeah I couldn’t remember if they had a union or not but my point was it didn’t matter if they had union or not. either way they were out of a job and knew they had to look for another one.
