Re: New North Star Basler Accident

Heard the same skipper on the YFH crash as this one. Doesn’t sound like he was inexperienced

Heard somebody miss Wannawoman about 9:30, so WX might not have been great.

I heard thunder miss as well at wunnamun. The pic I’ve see looks pretty misty in the background. Probably wasn’t great. Probably landed long and off the end.

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.

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

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

Wow running out of fuel going back to where you should’ve stopped in the first place. Lucky to be alive. I don’t understand how people make such dumb decisions. And the kicker had he/she checked the notams it never would’ve happened. Double whaaaamy.

Re: Westwind 1124 ACP and Line Indoc Pilot

Speaking of Top Aces. Anyone knows the story of why their Westwind has been sitting in Dawson Creek for a couple of weeks dripping fuel from the centre tank all over the place? The westwind is notorious for leaking fuel while it sits. It’s not a lot by any means but if left unchecked than it will c...

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.

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.

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?
