Re:

When I hit 6 out of 10 on my pucker factor scale. I either turn around, or start lookin for a good fish'n hole. And that's from hitting an 11 a few times and saying "well that was a real son of a bitch". I'm not gonna do that anymore. I think this sums it up perfectly. If you always keep the pucker...

Re: Gogal accident report

Re: First Air Crash Resolute Bay August 20 2011

I meant no disrespect to the 37-200, but it does lack the modern technology that the rest of the world is using to increase safety and situational awareness for flight crews. You would think that this technology would/should be available for the crews that fly in the most challenging conditions. Ca...

It's time to retire these old planes with Frankenstein cockpits or at least through a moving map in them. Hey TC, it's 2014. Get with the program!! The 727 and 737-200 were gravel capable. Newer Boeings are not. I don't think any Airbus aircraft are either. That leaves the BA-146 if you want anothe...

If you GAF about this not happening again you'd spend money on newer technologies and prove it.

Re: First Air Crash Resolute Bay August 20 2011

I don't propose to comment on the crew, CRM, SOP, 7F, or the TSB report. There's nothing to add to any of it. There are a couple of things that southerners may not know or understand about flying up here: 1. In the North, it is not uncommon to make downwind approaches on the ILS - particularly at Y...

Re: First Air Crash Resolute Bay August 20 2011

The main take away should be the widespread requirement for SOPs that allow critical commands like go-arounds to be initiated by PF or PNF, and that they have mandatory responses with no option for anybody to ignore or override them, PIC included. I suspect most companies already adhere to these st...

Re: First Air Crash Resolute Bay August 20 2011

When this aircraft landed next to the runway at CYEG back in 2004, one of the findings was the crew not following company SOP's. People, we practice the go-around in the Sim for a reason!! Remember guys/gals, if the PF doesn't respond or take corrective action after the 3rd call, he/she is considere...

Re: First Air Crash Resolute Bay August 20 2011

Like everybody else on here, I'm eager to find out the cause. I'm sure the one thing that we can all agree on is that there was some sort of navigational error that caused an aircraft to fly an offset ILS into a hillside. Was it a switch problem? or was it some sort of internal aircraft system error...

Re: Pilot gets 60 days in jail for buzzing pier

People are so parinoid about everything these days . Although I do think the low passes were uncalled for, 20 years ago people would be cracking beers and watching the free show instead of calling 911. They should be more concerned about their failing economy. My 2 cents!

Re: How safe is Air Travel in Yellowknife?

Operating on the edge of the limits poses a greater risk than operating well below. Northern flying is very demanding (long days, unpredictable weather, uncontrolled airspace,) and unless you've done it it's hard to have an appreciation for it. You can't compare it to flying say from Edmonton to Cal...
