Re: Another Crash in BC

GPS trackers are “fail-safe”. They leave a trail of breadcrumbs that ends when the unit is destroyed or electrical power is removed—and it’s likely going to be close to the crash site. That's fine for super wealthy elite 1% guys. What about us po' folk? Those units are like a hunnerd an fitty bucks...

Re: Is the Class C Control Zone at Langley Airport Dysfunctional?

To answer your last question Stabilized: As PF says, it's simply nice when Terminal talks to us in busy airspace, we don't need to be any higher and inside the class C. YYZ operates multiple satellites on different frequencies, so they can do this....I do recognize it's a much bigger airspace. Flyi...

Re: Is the Class C Control Zone at Langley Airport Dysfunctional?

From my experience seems terminal is dumping their traffic problems onto towers. Last time I was there, terminal only said, "no contact, remain clear". No VFR service. I've heard it's long been that way. Perhaps it's teminal that needs to be fixed. I've had that as well, no VFR service from termina...

Even Hope Air requires a minimum private licence. What this guy was doing seems like an odd charity to donate your time to if that's the case.

A "recreational pilot permit"? I thought a commercial licence would be required for his work.

Re: A mess to regain confidence.

people are idiots, i find with this social distancing when you leave space between you and the person in front of you people just think you left the gap for them to slide into, its like driving a car in traffic for christ's sake.

Re: Hanging up the headset... anyone done it ? Anyone thinking of it?

I quit flying for a paycheque some 10 years ago, I went to truck driving. It pays a bit more than what I was making flying, but not nearly as rewarding. I never could really quit flying so I ended up buying my own small plane to fly, that's the funnest flying in my opinion, doing your own thing. You...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

"Hot dog" is an unfortunate, and very vague term as applied to flying. It extends from a new C 150 pilot, yelling out alone in the cockpit "Hot dawg! I'm flying!), to someone doing something needlessly risky in a more advanced aircraft. I fly exactly two types of airplanes: Planes I own, and planes...

Re: Deduct uninsured airplane damage/loss from taxes?

I'm sure you could get some kind of tax relief if you had a bussiness rather than just being an individual, after all you can go out for dinner with a friend and claim it as a "business expense" but you're SOL getting any kind of tax break on your meal just as an average schmuck.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

- the idea with an engine failure in single engine military jets is to exchange airspeed for altitude to get away from the ground, buy some time to sort things out and assess whether one can return to the same runway. The idea in the Tutor is to apex at 130 kts (above the stall speed) and assess if...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Can someone please explain to me what "low key" means? I'm guessing its military. I've never heard that term before in my years of flying. please don't ridicule me saying i should know what it means.

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

I am sorry to see that you have such a dim outlook. Many of your assertions are simply wrong such as lack of proper funding (they have a whole squadron that maintain the aircraft, the aircraft are due for an avionics upgrade for example), the RCAF doesn't hire off the street (they have a pilot shor...

I see all your points. I don't have military experience to know but like you said the mindset difference with an ejection option would be different.

The exact same way except you’d have one more fatality. Yes, probably, If it stalled and spun. But maybe he wouldn't have pitched up and stalled it if an eject option wasn't avialable and he was forced to put it down the best he could. I'm no military jet pilot so I may be completly wrong and out o...
