Re: Another Norseman...gone

Ok I figured, but didn't know how wrong it had to go (relatively easy vs very difficult) to destroy a float, but both going obviously sounds like a misjudged landing.

Re: Another Norseman...gone

That's a shame, at least only minor injuries. Impacted is probably just correct terminology but sounds like a hard hit. Could you actually belly flop hard enough to break both floats or is a defect more likely (old age etc?)

Re: "Apprentice Pilot"

Skycare. I know the reputation they have around here, and I can honestly say at least for the St. Andrews base it's undeserved. I am aware of problems in the past, but the chief pilot/ base managers aren't pushing weather, everything is weighed and marked down, is there probably a gallon or two of g...

Re: "Apprentice Pilot"

Honestly, ours is more "apprentice" than wasaya. They're hired as ground crew/ part time pilots. They get their PPC and a few hours a month as suggested above. After 3-4 months usually, they're upgraded to full time FO.

Re: First RCAF C-295 makes Maiden Flight

was the q400 ever looked at as an option? I'd imagine in a SAR type roll they could add an aux tank of some sort and have tons of range As far as I was aware that "option" was part of the hold up. Had to prove the q400 wouldn't work. (No cargo ramp, range, etc.) Before they could go to something else

Re: Encore with under 1000 Hours?

Honest question, to help inform OP's decision. I feel if you had the choice between encore and jazz, jazz no question. However, what if you're deciding between WJ mainline and Jazz? Thoughts?

Re: 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

In fact, a lot of it was the other way around. Grumman was contracted to build the LEM because at the time they were the only American company who’d built an aircraft with two computers in it (the A-6 Intruder). IBMs guidance package for the Saturn V was based on what was already installed in ICBMs...

Re: Gate checking carry on in Canada

I'll agree I tend to not see it out of YYZ YWG YVR. I always assume cause their at the jet bridge and the ground crew doesn't want to carry them down one at a time.

Re: Traffic you cant explain

I think I almost got hit by a meteor once. It's the only logical thing to explain what I saw. Middle of the night Inuvik to Edmonton City Centre, captain was asleep as were the medic, and the patient. I saw a super bright light start stationary at 11 o'clock high, come straight at us, and pass off ...

Usually in place at airports without jet bridges. They leave a cart by the door. Did it all the time in NB when I worked for jazz.

Re: NIA 737 MAX told to get lost

Also disabled with autopilot on. Seems like that would have been the better choice... Autopilot on before your last notch of flaps comes up, then only disconnect once flaps are down.
