Re: Gatineau Water Aerodrome

If I remember correctly, they removed their pumps and shutdown a few years ago... "Blakey" might be able to confirm that for you... Your best bet is to fly a little more to the south west (about 7-10 mins in a 180/185 from the old Gatineau seaplane base) and fuel up at Constance Lake... Try to grab ...

Re: Proceedures for a safe flight

Let's say you go to an airport near me on the weekend, oh say Arnprior, Ont and you fly overhead to join the downwind. Even money you will get a windshield full of canopies - parachuting at that airport. And many others. That's simply dangerous. And violates CAR 602.01. No CAR is violated by NOT fl...

Re: Self Healing Material

If a tiny hole/crack appears in the aircraft (e.g. due to wear and tear, fatigue, a stone striking the plane etc), epoxy resin would 'bleed' from embedded vessels near the hole/crack and quickly seal it up, restoring structural integrity.
