Re: Pilot leaves towbar on runway??

You don’t need a fancy checklist. It’s called a walkaround. Look at every surface of the aircraft and the area around the aircraft for abnormalities. If the systems that are in place have been implemented properly (flags, high vis markings, ground icing training, norms, etc) you aren’t going to miss...

Re: TCM O-470 Spark Plug Lead Fouling

I found that doing plugs every 50 hours rather than ever 100 hours got rid of 99% of the problems. Even with aggressive leaning, due to the poor distribution of the O-470 intake manifolds you’ll always get fouled lower plugs. Also check your primer. Sometimes they leak. But yeah.. lean on the ground...

Housing will be the absolute last thing to go because unlike the US, you can’t simply walk away from a mortgage in Canada without being 100% liable for the difference between what you owe and what the banks finally flog it for.

Re: Near ground collision in Trail

Even from the north VFR it’s not easy. Pilots who’ve never been there before wonder why I’m so low and calling for flaps and gear when they can’t even see the runway yet.

But you can do a visual downwind. It’s tight.. and be prepared for the EGPWS to be going off continuously, but it can be done.

Won’t ever happen. That’s why an Ebola pandemic is usually short lived. It kills too fast and too efficiently... it doesn’t have a chance to spread itself very far.
