Re: Skylink Planes

If I was working there I'd just bring along my old garage sale Lowrance Airmap. Better than nothin, for reference anyway.

Re: The importance of maintaining your airplane

I thought there was something in the CARs about "owner produced parts" but I can't seem to find it. I made a couple of new fiberglass wing root adapters for the rear seat vents on my Cessna but obviously those have no bearing on aircraft safety or reliability.

Re: need access to a A320, A330 or A340 sim

So sims are booked up in Montreal as well eh. damn. Well that's a great idea to try the USA. Going to fire off some emails across the border. Hopefully there are some not too far from T.O. Anyone know if the IPC actually requires a GPS approach? If I end up doing this in a light twin I'd rather jus...

Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

I think he's saying that we've quickly come to the point where "when everyone has a degree, no one has a degree" most jobs do not require a degree. They require specific training. Even when you think of doctors and lawyers. While their specific training is in the form of a degree it could easily ju...

Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

So the airlines pay crap for the 1st years or so, they create a self inflicted shortage, because people that have bills to pay just aren't going to bother becoming a pilot or pilots are just going to say "faq it" and quit (myself). Now they want the taxpayer to fix it? Other professions will up thei...

Re: Near collision at Brampton

Maybe this should be one of the numerous ads on this forum, yeah they are that cheap. It even comes with a headset jack and a power cord to plug into one of those $75 Canadian Tire booster packs if plane doesn't have an electrical system. I can't even believe someone would even want to fly NORDO.

Re: Luxury Tax

I can’t see a reason why spending my cash on an airplane or boat is worthy of extra tax, but not spending it on a cottage (or second cottage), or flash jewellery, or a collection of good wine, or a decent violin, for example. Exactly, I know someone who drives a 100k vehicle and lives in a basement...

Re: Spins Not Specified In POH, Illegal?

A Cessna 172 is only in the utility category under certain conditions, within certain weight and balance I believe, otherwise it's considered a normal category aircraft. I don't know of any other plane that has that "either or" designation.A Cessna 150 for example is always utility unless it's an Ae...

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

Guys a pitot static instrument failure or blockage is not going to bring down an airplane like this because the pilot can just switch to attitude+power. A gyro instrument failure is much harder to deal with. Sure, if the pilot knows about it. There is at least one case of a pitot static blockage br...

More than once, airport and road cameras have made my decision to go or not to go !
Yes, WX cams are one of the best tools for the VFR pilot.

Re: Operating different machines.

As an example I clearly stated I have over five thousand hours in the north flying DC3's and that obviously means lots fo IFR flying in IMC. Not to mention it was all hand flown due to no autopilots in the machines. Apparently flying a 787 with three autopilots on long overseas legs, must be that m...

Whenever a tragic accident like this happens it always gives me a bit of a shudder and makes me think to myself how vulnerable we are and that it just takes 4 or 5 bad decisions in a row until the shit hits the fan.

If you believe that you are in the wrong profession. Being a pilot is not difficult at all. You need to apply yourself but difficult it's not.
