Re: Question about Transport Canada recordkeeping

Did you send an email to the governing body about these shenanigans? They might throw that on the pile to look at but then is there any real legal issue here? For example, that "53%" might include other programs or maybe 53% that were still enrolled by the end passed. They wouldn't count dropouts in...

Sold it this July for well over $35000. I flew whenever I wanted for as long as i liked and did four provinces in it. But i was ...

Re: Regarding AME Shortage

How can anyone say that. I know that dozens of fellow AMEs like myself are starving to go to work (at an NOT reduced wage). Unfortunately, once you've been at the top of the AME pay scale, the only way to go is down. If I was starving, I'd be hitting the road again looking for work, try to find a t...

I think we all need to open our eyes and pay attention. The fact of the matter is nobody knows shit. Every countries experts have their own expert opinion. So who is right?

Re: TBM Icing analysis video.

That one pilot who said it was "the worst he's seen in 38 Years" is enough to convince me it was pretty frickin bad. Statements like that are hardly ever accurate, for various reasons. The main one being that people like to tell tall tales be it intentionally or subconciously. It makes you look lik...

Re: TBM Icing analysis video.

I disagree with the TBM manual for the first three things to do when it comes to severe icing(Request priority handling from ATC, avoid abrupt/excessive maneuvering, do not engage the autopilot). The first three things should be SPEED, SPEED, SPEED.....as in maintain an airspeed which will be signi...

Re: Buying vs Renting

Buy a plane! You can tell everyone you own a plane! The only time buying a plane is economical is if you've got a free hangar and strip nearby and own a gas station and fly everywhere. I much prefer renting if I wanted to fly myself and a charter once and a while isn't that expensive if you need to ...

Really? I don't go to gyms so I wouldn't know. In Ontario, I was under the impression if it was an open business you needed a mask on as a customer.

I especially liked the part about the idiot who wanted to get up during the taxi back, talk about karma.

Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

Sorry I misread you here, we just have seen other AMO's write the old negligible change to weight and balance change required. I was hoping to finally see someone approved to write this. Ah yes, i imagine that was also changed when the other requirements were updated. Nowadays with everything being...

Re: Westjet mask policy

The debate over masks is hilarious. My favorite part is everyone picks and chooses when to follow the rules. Many people drive well over the speed limit doing 20 plus over the speed limit. Speeding kills, and puts the driver and others at risk. I know people who are supposed to have a social circle...

Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

Can you provide an example? As TC is not standard across the country if we could prove other AMO's are doing this maybe we could not have to update the W&B and equipment list for adding or subtracting a part that weighs ounces. No, i think you are mixing it up here. The regulations are standard acr...

Re: Westjet mask policy

Why is this even an issue? Why are people so insecure about wearing a face covering? Don't like it then don't go anywhere. If anyone can produce some actual scientific information that masks are useless then i would consider the point but all you hear is "from studies", ya, which studies? Like some ...

Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

The 2% change requirement has disappeared from record and is now only retained by commercial operators and AMO's as part of their own control manuals. To clarify the requirements for a weight and balance amendment, CAR 605 Schedule 1 item #2 states that an entry must be made "Except where an approve...

Re: Weight and Balance amendment requirements

An amendment to the Weight and balance is required whenever equipment is removed or installed, that is easy.

The confusion is coming from the requirement to re-weigh the aircraft. You don't have to re weigh if the change is less than 2%.

Re: Amateur Built

I just love the CAR's. I'm saying nothing has structurally changed going from floats to amphibs. Attachment points are the same, struts are stronger on these floats and the wheels offer less stress on the structure during landing than floats on water. Could argue applying hard brakes is a new issue...
