Re: Minimum rest in the 703 world

This is great, thank you. I've seen 720.21 before and that's what I was referring to in this post and what the company tries to get around. I haven't seen R740.21 or S740.21 before. Can I ask how you found them? I'm good at finding CARs, but those (I'm assuming the standards?) are less obvious to m...

Re: Minimum rest in the 703 world

If you are on reserve then the operator must provide a way for you to get 8 hours of sleep and this way must be documented in the COM. Flight Crew Members on Reserve 700.21 (1) An air operator shall provide flight crew members on reserve, within each 24-hour period, with a rest period that meets the...

Re: Halifax crash report coming Thursday

Normally, I'd agree, but the crew crashed a plane. MDA is MDA, and it seems that they broke it. Having the context of the audio is powerful and should shed a lot of light on exactly how this went down. They know it would be damning (as it should be), hence the resistance. I support my fellow airlin...

Re: Info Request: Hearing Loss - DHC-2 Beaver & DHC-3 Otter

I considered that, but after reading a critique of the Clarity Aloft I am not certain if that is as useful as it sounds. It seems that earplugs do not provide the same protection as ear muffs/a passive headset because vibrations still reach the ear with ear plugs whereas they are absorbed/blocked b...

Re: Info Request: Hearing Loss - DHC-2 Beaver & DHC-3 Otter

I have used a Telex 50D in Twin Otters, but not Beavers or Otters. It is an older headset, clunky, heavy, and I do not think the ANR is as good as the newer headsets, but it is comparable to a passive David Clark without power. My experience with their customer service has been bearable but not gre...

The goal of editing my posts is to allow this thread to return to some form of discussion regarding Air Canada pay, versus Corporate vs Air Canada, in the hopes of halting the circular arguments.
That's too bad. It was a very interesting insight even though some people disagreed.

On call hours don't count as duty time in the eyes of TC. Perhaps you should count yourself lucky to get even 8 hours per day.
They don’t count as off time either though.

The FAA used to be the gold standard when it came to safety and certification, not anymore.
Rudder/vertical fin issues with 707 and stick pusher issues with 727 illustrate otherwise. Industry has been able to push FAA around quite a bit a long time before 2019.

Re: Metars Wind Decode

If you look at the METAR closer, you’ll see WND ESTD in RMK section.
Multiple slashes in METARs or weather reports in general mean “missing” data. In this case they were unable to determine what the wind was gusting to. It seems like earlier in the day they were able to do it though.

If we can assume the plane started the uncorrected/uncontrolled descent because the pilots were unable to raise the nose while they were still under Vne, it makes me wonder if airplanes can be certified if there are situations in which the control forces on the yoke with full opposite trim exceed a...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Nothing on an aircraft should be allowed to flap nor freewheel needlessly. If it is parked and might move, it should be tied. Brief windmilling of PT6 props won't hurt them, prolonged windmilling introduces lubrication concerns - long long would you like to leave it windmilling to learn it was dama...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

I haven't met anybody who would let a PT6 or other free turbine windmill all day. Maybe 5 or 10 minutes while after taking the prop tie off to hitting the starter. Just watch a Q400 next time you see it on a windy day, the PW150 is a free turbine. For sure. They do feather it before shutdown though...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Free turbines spin the prop the wrong way all the time on windy days That’s not a good thing. At least on the Garret that’s a big no no since starter-generator brushes are worn in only one way, spinning them the other way is not good. Garretts ain't free turbines. Free turbines can have the props s...
