Re: Maintenance Survey

There are some questions on this survey to which there are no correct answers. There are also a lot more layers that need to be peeled back and you, (flygirl & Co.) need to educate yourselves before this can be even relevant. Additionaly, I should mention, the direction of the entire questionaire sm...

Re: "aerial photography"

You'd also have to have a good look into the CAR's at the legality and possible requirements for certification
I don't see how you could need an O.C.

You are only selling 'the product' not the flying.

Re: Talk about having a bad day

Aircraft started engines while ground support crew moving equipment and removing chocks and pylons.
Where in the CARs does it say you can't do this?

Does anybody have experience with Micro Four-Thirds? I'm seriously leaning towards picking up a GF1 and a couple lenses to replace my old point-and-shoot. There is a GF X 1 in the rumour mill but I can't find any specifics as to when it will hit the market or what the advantages will be over GF1. I ...

Re: Liquid freight?

No landing weight restriction on this airplane?

I know a guy who had both his AME lic and pilot's lic revoked for hauling fuel in an Ag Cat.

Overweight landings were the issue with T.C.

Re: Dangers of erecting a Xmas tree with a chopper

I have no idea why they didn't "punch off" the line from either end before getting into this mess. You can't "punch off" a line that has no weight on it. It wouldn't have fallen out of the hook. There's a very candid interview with the pilot that I cannot seem to find at the moment. He makes a comm...

Re: Training bond NOT tax deductible !?!

A bond as such, will be repaid by the company after you have met your post-training employment conditions, either in installments or as a lump sum in its entirety, right? If you claim it as an expense now, you will have to claim it as income when they pay it back. At that point, presumably you'll be...

Is anybody certain that one of the engines was indeed not making any power at the time of the crash?

There is nothing to say though that they weren't in...
