Re: Floatplane Incident Ottawa River Sept 28 or 29th

Looking at the prop rotation, it would pull to the left....how would it automatically go to the right? Sounds like he shouldn't be flying, let alone with kids on baord...PDM seems to lack

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

Should his phone have been on during the takeoff roll? Distraction is a detriment to aviation safety, not alerts.

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

Yes the condition levers have a gate....but with the amount of cycles I amigine it has, the hard corner would over time not be pointy. Also I assume the captain shuts down the airplane. This would be a pull force to the left every time, which tiny amounts over and over would make the lever arms not ...

Is there any difference between a " black hole departure " and a departure in IMC with a 200 foot ceiling?
Yes, the pilot.
One departure can be done by a low time VFR only pilot. The other would only be done with an IFR pilot who's comfortable flying in IMC.

So on a Cessna or Beaver you will have to wear them. On an Otter or Twin Otter no.

Not sure if that makes sense.
Otter would also require them, 9 pax.

Re: Elevator position for tailwind in taildragger

If you stand by the tail of any piston single with a regular horizontal stabilizer, with the prop turning, which way is your hair blown? Does it depend on the wind direction? He mentioned significant tailwind and a light taildragger. Therfore, assume a 20kt tailwind and I'm sure it will overpower t...

Re: Float pilot hiring scenario?

A Cessna is a Cessna, IMO. The numbers are different, and the engines as well, but they all FEEL the same. A 172 feels like a 182, 185, 206, 208; they just get bigger. I've heard even the straight wing Cessna jets pretty much feel like a rock solid 172. I notice you left out the crowd killer. Proba...
