Re: North Atlantic Operations

Below 29000ft, it's up to your how to proceed in an emergency situation (Nat manual 17.14). If you're flying in NAT HLA then you must fly the contingencies regardless of your location.

Re: ATPL logbook question

"more is always better" has less to do with transport and more to do with the law of averages. If you need 250 hours PIC and have 1000 hours PIC then 3 out of every 4 hours could be logged incorrectly and you'd still be over the limit. If you need 250 hours and have 250.0001 hours then any mistake d...

Re: A Field Guide to NOTAMs

Would you care to give an exhaustive list of what kind of notams are essential? I don't think we need an exhaustive list. I think it's actually very simple. We don't need 300 notams about closed taxiways and burnt out taxi lights, which I can't and don't care to memorize. The controllers will know ...

Does anyone have access to the ATA SPEC 2000, chapter 17. I'm just looking to have a cursory view and don't want to spend $600 just for a curiosity.

Re: ARINC and FMS

Are all the published instrument approach procedures possible to be coded as per ARINC 424 standard on a FMS Navigation Database? Yes, if a procedure were unable to be coded it would be unable to be retrieved and therefore illegal to be flown by the fms. Up to how many fields can contain an IAP rec...

The real question should be why. It was determined that the terminal can handle roughly 20-30 fewer movements per hour than the runways. What is the point in restricting aircraft that aren't actually affecting terminal, and therefore airport, throughput? During known peak times or times of weather, ...

Re: 705/703 Mixed Flight Time Restrictions

It depends on the order in which you did your flying. You have to be legal for the flight you are about to do. You could do 40 hours of 705 flying followed by 20 hours of 703 in 7 days but not the reverse. As soon as you hit 40 hours in any aircraft in 7 days you cannot fly any 705 aircraft. As soon...

Re: King Air PIC or Dash FO?

It depends what you want. If you want to get to the airlines faster, take the job where you'll fly more hours.

If you're enjoying the journey, take the King Air. PIC time will make you a better pilot and probably pays more. Also, if you eventually decide not to go to the airlines, PIC is king.

Re: expired medical question

Chances are, enforcement would like to have a word with you. They would look at whether it was done with intent (i.e. extenuating circumstances), how many times it was done and if you still did it after discovering the fact. They would then either council you or apply a monetary fine for each flight...

Re: Class 1 medical with second pilot restriction

It would seem that there are two options. 1. Valid with or as copilot 2. With an accompanying pilot It doesn't seem that with either of those options, solo flight would be allowed. I believe the reason for the medical flexibility is to allow experienced pilots to continue flying, not to allow new on...

Re: Sunglasses recommendations...?

Once you reach a minimum quality level (~$100), anything is going to work for you. The most important thing is how they fit. If you find something that is comfortable then that's what is good for you. There is a fairly uniform level of quality across the board and any problems you see are model spec...

Re: C152 Hot Start tips

Try 2 pumps and if that doesn't work, try 3. "catches" means lights off, sort of almost running. The fuel you've put into the carb will run the engine for about 1-2 seconds with the mixture at ICO. You have time. Working at starting an engine isn't a reason to fly a more expensive airplane. If you'r...

Don't pump the throttle, prime, no pumping. The way we always got tough engines to go was to prime quite a bit then throttle full open and mixture ICO as you crank. As soon as it catches throttle to idle (1000rpm) and mixture full rich. It seems like you need three hands but it doesn't happen as fas...

Re: Anxiety past. Do I have any chance of getting Cat 1 Medical?

It is not possible to apply for multiple categories of medicals and will only confuse the process. They will give their decision on the Cat 1 in due (i.e. slow) time and that is only where the fun begins. You have two possibilities. Yes you have a Cat 1 or no you don't have a Cat 1.

Re: 1956 Cessna 180A

There is nothing more expensive than a cheap airplane. What happens if they find corrosion/cracks during your total overhaul? What happens when that 15k for avionics becomes 20k or 30k. Always buy the best example of the airplane you want, that you can afford. It's the cheapest way to go.

You are required to abide by the most restrictive limitations of either the Canadian or Australian PPL. Being ICAO, I'd imagine they have fairly similar privileges.

Re: ATPL Aerocourse : Need help with performance chart question

They are quite straight forward de-rating questions. The temperature is a bit of a red herring, you don't need it when you know your GTOW. All you do is take the GTOW of your aircraft and then look for the lowest climb or runway limit that is above your gtow. Q 23. Your gtow is 30,500. For runway le...
