Re: 172 runs out of gas - lands on TN highway

It could have been a faulty fuel indicator Do you really believe a faulty Fuel Indicator is a good excuse for Getting an engine Failure due to Fuel Starvation? Not everybody dips the tanks. Have you even flown a 172? The fuel gauges are all faulty, that's how Cessna made them. If you don't dip your...

Re: Aviation Based Protest in Ottawa this Coming Week

The issue is that this government is on the road to putting the airlines out of business. If the airlines collapse, the airports will go bankrupt, as will all of the vendors who do business there, as will Navcanada, and a whole host of others. It's bigger than the pilots, flight attendants, and AMEs...

Re: Aviation Based Protest in Ottawa this Coming Week

I think the 23rd is the first day Parliament sits again, so if you want your voice heard before selfie boy shuts it down again and turns his back, it might be the only chance to stage a meaningful protest.

It's not like that, there is sadness but also lots of kind words, and optimism. For me putting faces and real stories to the job losses helps me remember I'm not alone.

Re: Question for trough (at the GFA)

The key to what happens with a trough are the properties of the air mass it is in. If the airmass is moist and unstable expect convective wx, is the airmass is dry and stable likely nothing will happen. Remember the definition of stability has to do with lapse rate. Think about the relationship betw...

Re: Question about building time for a float/bush career

If you want to fly floats, don't bother with the multi or the ifr rating, spend the money on float time. An idea worth asking about that I don't know the answer to is; would pic on an ultralight on floats be worth anything? If it comes down to insurance, 50 pic on floats should be 50 hours pic on fl...

Re: Cargojet777

CJ will acquire B777 if they feel they have the committed long term cargo volume to fill the planes. However, an additional fleet type comes with significant overhead costs that need to be spread across a meaningful number of hulls. I cannot see this happening on a dry lease basis for a fleet of le...

I would have to think that a 206 is not an easy machine to hand prop. The biggest engine I've ever hand propped was an O-320 though.

Re: Non Aviation Employers Don't Respect Pilot Experience

... I’ve found that my non- aviation employer expected that I’ll be able to do anything without training.( Aren’t you a pilot?? How come you don’t know how my inventory/ POS system works on day 1??) I also echo the sentiments from others to leave “ Pilot” off the resume/ CV. ... This is so true.

Re: C150 budget

My only experience with auto gas in a 150 is that carb ice is much more of an issue than with 100LL. Otherwise it ran great, and developed the same power. I loved the 150 to fly. I found it more fun than a 172.
