Re: Judge Rules Against Quebec Airfield

Interesting story, the operator will have to pay $15k to each neighbour plus $150k in compensation and costs after the neighbours alleged their property value dropped after the airfield was opened. https://copanational.org/en/2018/10/18/judge-rules-against-new-airfield/?utm_source=wysija&utm_medium...

Re: Where is this so called shortage

First off, working any job in canada will provide you a minimum wage. Stop trying to tell us that ramp work pays less, legally it can't. Secondly, if you think that you won't learn anything about aircraft operations from ground work then you need to leave the industry. Third, no career will give you...

Re: Plane with 2 aboard missing between Chilliwack and Edmonton

No matter what kind of safety equipment you have, being able to make a good decision whether to fly or not will always evade some.

Someone once said that "No one has ever been killed by my decision not to fly."

Re: ORNGE Vs. Air Bravo

Possible benefit of Air Bravo over Ornge is that Ornge is a fixed shift of 12 to 14 hours, you have to be at the base for that length of time. Whereas I believe Air Bravo is an on-call situation, so you dont have to just go and sit there at the base. Pros and cons to that, depends which your prefer...

Re: ORNGE Vs. Air Bravo

I heard two weeks ago from an Ornge employee that they are really short on fixed wing pilots..... There was a boom of hiring in the airlines so now there is a shortage of pilots in the smaller operators including ornge. But if you're happy with scheduled shifts, benefits, pension and decent pay fly...

Follow the manufacturer's instructions? It should be no different than other emergency equipment. How many inadvertent parachute releases have there been?

Re: Laptops at high altitude

Panasonic toughbooks are rated to MIL-STD-810G and have been tested to 15000 feet for operation in military cargo aircraft.

Since most laptops aren't made to any standard at all, you will find very little information with no one claiming a 40000ft operational ceiling.

Good Luck.

39 feet from what point on the aircraft?
Wherever the source for the egpws comes from. I would guess a rad alt on the bottom of the fuselage.

That was an overly detailed report, they really pushed the paper well. No FDR data to go on either.

If an AME enters a defect, say "inboard spar fitting found cracked", that would technically ground the aircraft as the PIC then needs to rectify it.
