Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

So why don't IFR aircraft just cancel IFR comming into an airport like YQT, instead of requesting a visual? It is the norm with operators that allow it. As is "VFR" departures. As stated, usually its the company SOPs that don't allow it at bigger airlines. Also to your original question, a Visual A...

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

It’s not for atc, it’s for the back up of ifr aircraft who want either an approach clearance or a decent so they can cancel ifr and get on with their day. Nothing worse than getting put into a hold because the people in screaming VMC won’t cancel ifr. Timmins comes to mind. Also for training, there’...

Re: Bearskin Crash — FEB 25, 2020 — Dryden, ON

That wouldn't explain the lack of brakes though. Realistically the nosewheel steering system and brake system is completely separate, although stranger things have happened. Then again, just the brakes wouldn't be enough to overwrite a faulty nose wheel steering, which might give the illusion of no...

I think the RA voice guy is too panicky-sounding.
Maybe they’re different, but I had an RA and it was a calm normal paced “Adjust your vertical profile” the “traffic traffic” was the standard.

Re: Susi Air

You'd even make more money than at Susi. Depends where you work there and here.

No idea if that affects pay or n...

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

Sorry I would’ve quoted the ASB number but didn’t have it on hand at the time. I also heard from a reliable source it was the lower strut that failed. Hence why a lot of the focus on the SB is directed to that area.

I don’t think they’re grounded, but there’s a Safety Bulliten to inspect the struts/fittings/bolts, etc before its next flight.

Turbine Otters cruise at Vne. Can’t exactly be healthy for the airframe.
Not sure how many operators do that knowing it’s weaknesses. We run at 144/134mph for wheels and floats.
