Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

In the case of a pilot, an entry in the pilot's logbook by an AME, attesting that the pilot had satisfactorily completed similar control inspections under supervision, would also suffice. The AME may also consider other forms of proof that provide an equivalent level of assurance. These qualificati...

Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

Supervision works in an AMO when an AME is supervising an apprentice or when 2 AME s are working on a plane, either way, 1 is overseeing the work and the other is usually being delegated the work. It would be unusual for an apprentice to oversee an AME and that is basically what you are saying. An o...

Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

Trust, but verify is a motto I live by. I will continue to closely supervise certain maintenance aspects, if an AME doesn't like it, rest assured I will be finding a different AME. Does a passenger or a passenger who is a private pilot ask to be seated on the jumpseat of an airbus or boeing so he/s...

I do not appreciate it when a customer flies in and expects the annual to be started immediately,,,,, A pre annual run-up needs to be done by the AME doing the annual PERIOD !

Re: Small plane crash near Kenora.

AME's are not required to spend 4 days checking compliance and applicability of AD's and SB's. You think your annual is expensive now, just imagine if AME's could charge for that book work. I have never met 1 owner that was proactive in their AD research or said that they would take care of the AD ...

That’s a lot of flight tests, check rides and recurrent training to get through without being caught.

I would never condone slandering another human in the workplace or giving out a bad/negative reference.

Re: could of been the whiskey-could of been the beer

Maybe the airlines should get together in Glass cow and have their own breathalyzer ( non-punitive self test) so that ALL pilots can ascertain that there are no issues before even getting near security ! Aviation goes through a myriad of checks why not this one?
