Re: Bizjet Tailstrike

Bombardier has a habit in their QRH of putting very critical information in CAUTION NOTES at the end of the emergency/abnormal procedures. One must be very diligent to carefully read the entirety of the applicable procedure, not just the numbered check items. Here is the caution note from the QRH: C...

Re: Circling Apporaches. Where did they go?

Be a dear and look up RNAV A into Kelowna and tell me how you’d ever get down to the runway within the protected area and at circling MDA. Once you’re visual and can stay, say visual and call leaving MDA and maneuver outside the protected area as appropriate. Are you certain of that? TC AIM 9.24 Ci...

Re: Circling Apporaches. Where did they go?

It depends what type of certification the circling approach is based on. I fly a Cat. D circling aircraft so will discuss with reference to it. A TERPS circling approach at Cat. D has a protected area of 2.3NM. If you are to be stable on approach at 300’ and 1NM as per a lot of SOP’s (which is far t...

Re: Who here has been ramped by TC?

They approached me while I was doing my walk around, asked to see the documents, checked for valid insurance, C of R, C of A, W&B, my Licence and Medical. They were friendly. It took 10 mins.

Re: Flying into Fairmont hot springs airport

It’s been 7-8 years since I’ve flown in there so my experience is somewhat dated now but if memory serves me correct it had an RNAV approach with fairly high minimums but nothing odd or difficult about it. I was going in there with a CJ4.

I had LASIK done 17 years ago. Went from 20/200 to 20/10 and still have 20/10 to this day. At some point I will probably need reading glasses but this has nothing to do with the LASIK surgery, the need for reading glasses is from old age as the muscles controlling ones lens don’t work as well as the...

The Champs I know they had were from a bit earlier time frame (late forties and fifties) they were CF-FMN, CF-FMK and CF-FMJ.
Also in 1949-50’s ish era Chinook was owned by Franz McTavish, Frank Clayton and Eustace Bowhay.

Re: C525 goes missing over Lake Erie with 6 aboard

Is a CJ4 really a "high-performance" jet? Not being facetious, but I thought it was a descendant of the Citation I/II? The CJ4 has a typical cruise speed of .76 or around 440ktas, typical rotation speed is 105 kias and landing ref of 105-112 kias. Unlike the Citation I/II with its straight wing the...

I’m curious as to why this is “sad but true”? When one is interviewing for a position flying a managed aircraft you are completely free to negotiate salary, vacation and other conditions and terms. If what you want can’t be met you’re free not to accept the position. That’s the beauty of it. It’s co...

You are going to find as many different answers to that question as there are charter planes.

Re: RAIC application refusal

There is no regulation specifically requiring a RAIC at any airport in Canada for pilots, what's needed is a document of entitlement of which a RAIC is but one method of compliance. Your pilots license is also a perfectly valid document of entitlement if certain rules are followed, see below. Margin...
