Overshoots at Toronto Pearson

Hey there... Yesterday noticed it seemed like an oddly high number of go-arounds yesterday (September 1st, 2016) There were 2 on the south side while I was arriving yesterday and 2 on the north side after I landed. Was this in regards to the email that our operations received about issues with Nav C...

Re: Lancaster KB882 is getting a new home

Did a flight into Edmunston just a week ago...
Got to see her before she is moved...
They had a pretty good history of the plane displayed in the "terminal".
Too bad I didn't get any pictures of it.

Re: Private Operator (604)?

Does the chief pilot of a 604 operation have to meet the same requirements criteria as say a 703 chief pilot?

If so how does a guy looking to fly around a C90 personally that doesn't meet those requirements?

Re: What was the first airplane you flew in?

Mine first flight was on Air Canada B747 from Toronto to Tampa, FL. Was supposed to have been an L1011 but it was swapped out. This was when I was 5 year old back in 1989. It was that return flight (also a B747) from Tampa to Toronto at night that really got me hooked. I still remember going to the ...

Re: Avantair flys w elevator installed upside down . . . oop

I just wanted to pass on clarification that I had given to me. A friend of mine that is an AME on an Avanti corrected me when I called it a canard. It is actually a forward wing not a canard. Because the Avanti has a traditional tail configuration it does not make it a canard. Even if you look up ca...

No it's just the dispatcher at the desk... it's hard to get the actual instructor.
Thanks for your help.

Expired IFR Question

Hi there, I am just wondering if someone can help me with my question. I went in 2007 and got my Group I IFR out at Perimeter. It has expired and I did not renew it. To get it back I know that I have to go write the INRAT again and that I will have to do the flight test. My question is do I have to ...

Re: What ever happened to C-GRIS

I had heard the same thing about it being beyond repair. It was in the FlightExec hanger for a while or on the ramp along with being outside Hanger 17 for a short time too. I was looking to find out if it was still hanging around YKZ or had it been parted out already. I haven't seen it for a while a...

Re: Aircraft at CYKZ with wing extensions?

Would hate to see what gravel would do to the lower surfaces after a day or two though... The leading edges of the wings were missing paint in a few places... The leading edges of the horizontal actually had acrylic attached to protect them. I'm not sure if this is a normal proceedure or just becau...

Hi there... I was just wondering if anyone knows what happened to the Falcon 10 C-GRIS that went off the runway at CYKZ last summer? I was at Buttonville the day it happened and know that it was over by FlightExec hanger for a while. I haven't seen it around and was just curious. It's been removed o...

Re: Max Wind youve seen.... (crazy wind in central canada)

The worst I have ever experienced personally was at CYQY (Sydney, NS) when a friend and I were ferrying a Piper Archer and were getting fuel in 42kts G 49 in January. We were each on the end of a wing trying to hold it a little more still while they fueled it. Later on the trip had a 92kt headwind a...
