Re: Fairchid Husky

duCapo,

That West Coast Air old school original ball cap that’s now hanging on your office wall was graciously given to me by Antique Pilot when he had me over for dinner several years ago in YWG.

Trust both of you are doing well!

Re: Things learned in the real world

When flying down low.... Always trim up so that some forward pressure on the yoke is maintained. Should you get distracted and release that pressure at least your not going to go downwards. In bad weather down low... extending your flaps slows you down and gives you more time to figure out if you wa...

Re: Major General R.W. (Bob) Fassold

Was he the gentleman who once had a DHC-1 based at CYRO?

If so, I clearly remember him showing me around it when I was doing my PPL back in the day.

Re: Thinking about plane purchase

Been there, done that.

Get the 180 over a 172 (read ; dog) on floats.

It’s a hell of a good time to be looking to buy one too!


All the best,

Re: New pot legislatiion brings on talk of pilot pee in a cup

Driving, more like a need to do...still not a privilege. Pee in a cup argument not relevant here. Unless you're being paid to carry people. Recreational drivers operate on the same roads professional drivers do and therefore put paying passengers at risk. I'd argue it is exactly the same. And nobod...
