Re: PC12 on condition?

Can you operate a commercially registered PC12’s PT6 past TBO? Like said above, life limited parts are the hard stop. I assume you're asking like a small private piston on condition and the answer is NO. Your maintenance schedule is what dictates the maintenance requirements and even though you can...

Re: Debris falls from 777 during emergency landing.

I'd love to see the vibe data from this incident. I wonder if there were any indicators prior to failure.

Re: Debris falls from 777 during emergency landing.

Looks like this was identical to the 2018 incident to her sister ship (N773UA) just short of HNL. 1 blade separates at the root and the next blade fails midspan - while losing the inlet and fan cowls. I'm thinking some redesigns (notably to the inlets design) are coming for newer airplanes perhaps....

Re: Interesting airplane ads

I think the asking prices of Cessna 180, 182, and 185 floatplanes are going up. Barnstormers has a listing for a Cessna 180 floatplane asking $180k. Ad says it was sold. They also had a listing for a Cessna 185 Amphib, asking $415k. Ad says sold. NAP More of the "look, I'm trying to sell my pl...

Re: Zika virus in 2021

Re: Carb fire season

I wonder if the activation of the primer while running caused the fuel to be sucked through the system freely until it flooded instead of the "measured" pumps.

Excellent move on the continuous cranking. Some might not have reacted as properly.

Re: Kobe Bryant chopper crash

I agree Schooner! I’d have to go back and look at the facts but I would think if your flying a multimillionaire around you would want to do so in the safest way possible (go IFR, decline the flight and let him get driven?). If you have to get a clearance and go up and get him to an airport IFR then...

Re: Motion in flight simulator

I guess they're not familiar with flight sim classifications? There are plenty of stationary training aids but their realism ends with no motion. The whole point of full motion sims was to avoid having to spend even more money on training in real aircraft. The references in it are ancient, it's 2021...

Even if you think you're not qualified or overqualified it would be good to get some experience job hunting.

I'd call that a crash landing. A hard landing and the ship can be repaired. I wonder if this was a hard landing like that air Canada plane. What was the weather in Exeter?
