Re: Terrible news for the Air Canada work force...

The generation of pilots that are at the bottom of the ladder will never see aviation as it was in 2019 in their lifetime. The younger generation is scared to death of damn near everything and that will keep enough of them From flying. If we get back to 50 % in 10 years I’d be surprised. NINTY % of ...

Medical Ext

Just heard from my Doc. Any medicals expiring between April 1 and July 1 are extended. He said wording was a bit vague and he wasn’t sure if extended to Aug 1 or September 1.

We know the company was VFR only. Where does it say the Helo no longer had a functioning IFR platform and that the pilot was unable to fly IFR ?

Re: Kobe Bryant chopper crash

I’m wondering with the rate of decent and the fact he missed clearing the top of the hill by 20-30 feet If he might have seen a hole to go through and missed the pull out due to high rate of decent. 🤷‍♂️

If you are cleared for an arrival (Star) either in your Flight plan route or sequencing to an approach then yes that is an ATC clearance.

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

I believe they declared a fuel emergency shortly before actual event. Fuel gauges on this aircraft are not great and are MELable. Been there done that. If they were, there is no cockpit indication of fuel on board and first indication would be the fuel pressure light. For whatever reason they didn’t...

In my opinion If it was fuel contamination it would happen much earlier in the flight. How long is the flight from Iqaluit to Gilliam ? 2 hrs ??

Re: Sunwing Runway Overrun - Belfast 2017

So when does the PIC say shit this isn't right and either abort or push the throttles to the stops. To stagger along for 4 miles is absurd. Are they so bound by SOP's that they can't do this? What ever happened to feeling what the airplane is doing? Never flown that size of aircraft but I would thin...

Re: Jazz lands YAM with plows on runway

I think it would be easy to have the radios on these vehicle set up to broadcast on the MF any time they are on the runway or within 100 feet of it. A simple " vehicle on runway" broadcast every 30 seconds might solve the problem. Once vehicle was clear another message indicating so.
