Re: Does NavCanada threaten us with higher user fees?

NavCanada fees are too high to start with thats why they are refunding money. Fly anything over 3mt or a jet and the fees are ridiculously high in Canada thats why the US aviation groups are worried. Dont forget that the fuel taxes was never removed after the privatization and its actually up in Ont...

Canadian STC on N registered aircraft

Can you put a Canadian STC only mod on an N registered plane?

Im talking about some skis that are only STC in Canada. Are these legal to fly on N registered aircraft in the US?

Re: Viking Layoffs

A couple of small electric heater in the cockpit and avionic bay run by a small generator would keep everything warm to start. Cold gyros dont last neither in the extreme cold without preheat. Even the PT6 would need preheat under -20 according to Pratt. Just saying. Regarding cold temps and EFIS. G...

Re: Viking Layoffs

Please elaborate, why do they suck in the cold? Sad news indeed. Good Canadian jobs going by the wayside, a real shame in our 150th year! I like Viking and what they do, but they effectively neutered the series 400 which is why they've yet to sell ONE domestically. The new Twins suck in the cold and...

Re: Buffalo Joe temporary shut down?

Joe is not saving anything running these antique aircraft.
Its most of the time cheaper doing the payments to run good equipment than paying all the repairs that these old pistons planes are bringing.
There are lots of good used turbine aircraft around that can do the jobs cheaper and more reliably.
