Check the stats and see what the numbers look like the last couple of years and compare. Looks to me like the numbers have not been this low since 1955. The total numbe...

Re: Lightspeed Zulu comments or complaints?

I am currently using my second Lightspeed Zulu headset. The first worked for around a week and then had a weird issue. Whenever I plugged in the mic cord the headset would cause the com selected to transmit. I tested this issue in several of our aircraft with the same problem. Very similar to having...

Just get rid of the AIP ammendments and let private companies copy and publish the CAR's/AIP. Seems like an easy way to remove the fee/tax or force the government to tell me where the hell my money is going. Or force them to come up with some other creative way to say dish over my cash. I know if so...

Emergency equipment in sparsely settled areas

Perhaps I am out of the loop but when did they change the requirements for flights into sparsely settled areas and emergency equipment?

I came across this change today 602.61 and am surprised on how the reg leaves the contents virtually undefined and ambiguous.
