Cessna SkyCourier

I see the Cessna SkyCourier did its first flight a few days ago. It has PT6-65s so lots of power. What are peoples thought on this machine, will it replace the DHC-6 in some operations?

Re: Advice for a high school student?

Did you consider Northern Lights in Dawson Creek? If you're in Edmonton this is a lot closer to home. I really don't think the College matters in the long run, you do the classes put your time in and write the final exams for your licence. Though I have hears BCIT had a reputation as a puppy mill bu...

Re: Red Chris Mine fly in

Thanks for the replies, I got into aviation instead of going underground like a lot of my friends but still dabble in penny gold stocks and have been reading about Red Chris for quite a while. I inquired as my Son may be going there to work, thanks again for the info.

Re: Red Chris Mine fly in

Thanks, I was thinking they probably did. With up to 500 workers doing a 2 week rotation I'd imagine its a busy charter, wondering if the Dease airport can take a -8 or Dornier?

Re: Am I be able to buy some retired engine or aircraft from this website?

Were you thinking you can make a running engine? When an engine part is deemed US or BER it is cut or bent so as to make it unable to use again. The last thing anyone wants is these parts ending up in a serviceable engine. The used to send the parts back as is but no more. I heard this story at Prat...

What happens if you don't finish your 48 months? I've gone in for licence renewal and have been issued an interim till the real plastic shows up in the mail but your scenario I'm not sure of. Let us know if TC issues you one.

Re: ICS TRAINING...AND TO BE CERTIFIED and work abroad

I agree with the clueless response, must have been from a pilot, ha ha, but back to the original post. Overseas jobs usually require experience so for you to get a Dubai job you would probably need some experience and time on type or at least factory training. BUT a lot of these jobs fill by who you...

Re: Sunwing

When you work for an Airliine its usually night shift, an AMO you probably don't. So Sunwing, Westjet, KF Cargojet are all in the same category. Most desirable would be the one who gives you the most take home pay. If Sunwing was that company they wouldn't be short AME's.

Wings Magazine, AC first female pilot.

Did anyone read the blurb in Wings about Air Canada first Female pilot? hired in April 1978 she became Captain in 1997. Is that about right 19 years to upgrade? Not sure where the DC-3, DHC-6 and 748 time came in.

Re: For Dash Fans

I'd think the -6 has the biggest following. It's operating and has been operated by more people worldwide so more interest. I know personally when I see a Dirty Double I think, "whats the S.N of that one" If I find out I'll go the the TWINOTTERARCHIVE and look at the history.
