Re: Fire Retardant Interiors

Not sure that's correct. It states that all aircraft must have shoulder restraints but there is no need to install them in grandfathered aircraft. It's a good idea and they would really like you to but you can just replace the old lap belts if you wish. Whatever is on the type certificate is the req...

Fire Retardant Interiors

I'm looking for a CARs reference addressing the requirement for fire retardant material in private aircraft. 523.853 addresses new aircraft requirements but is there not a regulation that stipulates that any retrofit or repair materials used in an interior must meet the same standard? Is there a dif...

Re: Harbour Air today

I'm confused, Where did this report come from? A Harbour Air de Havilland DHC-3 (C-GHAZ / HR316) from Vancouver (Water), BC (CAM9) to Victoria Harbour, BC (CYWH), was holding south of Victoria Harbour when the aircraft declared an emergency. The aircraft landed northbound near the breakwater. The pi...

Re: RCAF - Historical Photos

Thanks Chris! I'd like some more info on the flying boxcar. I've loved that plane since I saw Flight of the Phoenix (Dennis Quaid Remake, sue me, I'm under 30), but did not realize that they were the primary lifting aircraft like the herc is today. I think ultimately the reason I am so connected to...

Re: Taildragger Sim?

Thanks. I wonder how well it emulated the experience. I did NOT know that the Redbird used MS Flight Sim but my reason for not wanting a "Game" Simulator is the scale. It's almost impossible to get any kind of decent simulation for VFR handling without full motion but trying to use a single small sc...

Taildragger Sim?

With all the talk of taildraggers being harder to operate than tricycle gear aircraft, I'm wondering if there is a taildragger Sim? I don't mean a taildragger that is emulated in a Flight Sim game, I am wondering if there is a Red Bird or similar simulator that can simulate a taildragger taxiing? I'...

Re: Here's an interesting method of building hours.

If I have a truck and you ask me to go to London, Ontario to pick up your stuff and then you pay for all the expenses and even buy me coffee at Tim Hortons, and maybe tip me a little... How is that bad? I suggest that you call this fellow and ask him that exact question. You may find that his answe...

Re: Here's an interesting method of building hours.

A 140? Not good enough. I'll need at least a 150 or, better yet, a 172! Cheap too.

Re: Ottawa RIver Departure under the Bridge

A few years back a 185 on floats actually hit the bridge just South of the Arnprior airport. The people on the bridge didn't even notice and the bridge itself did not even require a paint touch-up. The 185 required extensive repair. Rock always beats scissors and bridge beats airplane every time.

Re: 2 rescued in Northern Saskatchewan

Pictures here. I'd say Henry did a great job of putting it down in bad terrain. A quick helicopter trip to the road and she'll be flying again in no time. I imagine the Corvette conversion doesn't work too well without electrical power. http://www.thestarphoenix.com/news/Pilot+recounts+finding+downe...

Re: This is insane

You may have heard of a book called "Jonathon Livingston Seagull", written by a guy called Richard Bach (or not - you're probably too young) who used to fly a Pitts on the airshow circuit many years ago, and he used to do this. And he's just a guy who writes books, not a proud Four Bars that struts...
