Re: Transwest Air DHC3 Otter crash near Ivanhoe Lk NT 22 8 2

The piston version used to rattle the tail a lot more than the turbine does and the max speed was also higher on piston than turbine (my understanding of it is they just didn't bother test flying the turbine at the higher speed so only certified 'as is') so I don't buy the over speed explanation. I ...

Re: Decisions....decisions

I only have a private licence and recently passed over 500 hours PIC. Most of that is all day time VFR on single engine including multiple 300+ nautical mile x-country flights. Never ever dreamed I would reach this milestone. I've had encouragement from some quarter to go get my Commercial, but can...

Re: Decisions....decisions

Let me answer your question with a question. Is Multi PIC time ever a liability? Here's an open secret of aviation - managing two piston engines is a LOT harder than managing one or two turbine engines. The only real consideration on a turbine is the extra speed and altitude involved, and once you ...

Looking input on a school(s) with equal combinations of quality, price and customer service - ie. no run around or long waits, in SW Ontario (Windsor to London) or Eastern Ontario.
