Re: Pulling that CB could come back to haunt you

Never forget your GUMP checks: G ear down U ndercarriage down M ake sure your gear is down P lease make sure your gear is down I like to keep my hand on the selector(at least in small aircraft) until I see the appropriate gear down indication(s). Such a technique might have helped the pilot in this...

How about this accident? A bad mag results in a pulled breaker that results in a single engine go around with the gear down but the pilot thought it was up, then a crash. Talk about a chain reaction of screw ups!

Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

If you are paying a so called reputable shop to preform your annual (not some guy on the side out of a back of a pickup) and your paying a substantial amount of money and your bill says they did an AD search you shouldn't have to do the search yourself again. The last shop that did my annual in whi...

I think their van still has a parking boot on the wheel. If they can't afford to pay their vehicle parking then stay away. Someone must be working on their plane(s) out of pitt meadows, hope they get paid.

He probably thinks he is doing fine because everyone is to chicken shi...

Re: A shout out to SAR - Thanks for being there! SR-22 CAPS deployment

Another shout out to SAR! I was called to fly a search for a downed aircraft this evening. I flew to the appointed area, and on my third grid line, found the aircraft. I buzzed the pilot, who ran out an lit his prepared fire. I made sure he knew I was there for him. I climbed up, to radio and text ...

Tell him not to go to the US until he gets a pardon. With a pardon it won't be a problem from a job perspective. But the US won't recognize the pardon once the record is on their system, which it will be if you cross the border, and it will make US travel a hassle for your whole career. How does it...

Re: Becoming a pilot with a DUI

I had a dangerous driving charge from when I was 19. I didn't affect me at all throughout flying until I applied at Air Canada. I actually forgot I even had it by that point, AC wouldn't hire me but I think that was more because I had not mentioned it on the application and they considered that lyin...

What's with KD Air lately?

Seems like there is a CADORS report about once a week for them from Pitt Meadows to Pitt Meadows doing low and overs with some kind of gear problem. Maybe they need a hydraulic mule and some jacks.

Re: K country crash

I'm a little behind but how did the investigators know all the engine parameters leading up to the accident? Did it have one of those data recording engine monitors? I'll bet he wished he had another pilot in the cockpit with him to help out.
