Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I am just gutted to hear news like this. My sincerest condolences to the team and their families. So tragic. I saw all of these team members and spoke to several of them when they transited through YYZ. I watched the videos. I too heard the "pop" basically as the two ship crossed the airfield bounda...

Re: Closing airspace

Used to fly into YYZ quite regularly in 150’s, 172’s to pick up parts from Leaven’s Brothers who, if I recall correctly, were on the north side of Derry Road. Segments of old runway 10-28 are still in use as taxiways G and P and AG. I often point out to people who are new to YYZ that "G" taxiway us...

122.75 is Apron frequency at YYZ

123.45 is air to air chit chat
I don’t think that’s right...every chart I’m looking at says 122.275 and 122.075 and I’ve never been on 122.75 there.
My mistake. Thanks for the correction.

Re: Closing airspace

A few days ago I saw a C-150, a Husky on amphibs and a Cherokee all do low passes down the runway at YYZ.
Gives you an idea of how busy the airspace isn't.

Air Canada A-320 missing #4 M/W YYZ

I watched an A.C. A-320 fly by the tower at YYZ today. It was missing the #4 main wheel :shock: It flew north, then after about 20 minutes, landed on RWY 23 accompanied by pretty much every flashing light on the airfield. From my vantage the landing seemed to be pretty uneventful. Well done to the c...

Re: Apprentice ame logbook

Aircraft in production in a factory, are not legally recognized as aircraft, until they are issued with a C of A. This is why you will likely have difficulty getting time working in the factory recognized by T.C. As far as getting tasks signed in your log book, the aircraft have to be registered wit...

But on a serious note what the heck will the airline do to get passengers to fly on this plane and how will they rebrand!
Charge $5 less.
That!

Re: Tailwheel Instruction near Toronto

A great place to get some tailwheel experience is the Edenvale Classic aircraft foundation. They do training on a Fleet Canuck and have several other interesting tailwheel aircraft. If you are prepared to invest a bit of time you can end up flying in their Cornell, Auster or Tiger Moth. https://www....

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

Thanks for that Gannet.
Really well summed up.
The Snowbirds are in a class of their own.
They make the absolute most out of their equipment, even if these trainers were built in the 1960's.
We should celebrate their capabilities and enjoy them while we can.

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

Always glad to hear that no one was seriously hurt.
Like most, I'll be very curious to hear what the cause was.
I guess if the stove quits in a Tutor your options are few. (Not that I'm saying that's what happened).
I'm also curious how big the pool of Tutors is that the Snowbirds have to pull from.

Re: Putting my own fabric on my airplane without experience

I have to agree with the two previous posters. "free" airplanes invariably end up costing a lot of money. If mice have gotten in, their urine will cause corrosion on any metal and you will also likely find chewed wood. Doing fabric can be learned though. Join a local EAA chapter and folks there will...

Nobody should have to put up with this kind of idiotic nonsense.
Especially when it endangers people in the confined space of an aircraft at FL390.
Let this be a message loud and clear, the public do not have to put up with morons like this.
