Re: Home made procedures

For just about everything in piloting has a procedure, sometimes a few procedures for the same operation, pick the one you like, but procedures, none the less. Aside from some avionics innovations, I can't really think of a need for a new procedure in flying a certified GA plane - it's been done be...

In Ontario, the fees have gone up to $41 for an employment check.

Re: Transport Canada Website Down

Maybe, just hopefully maybe, the government of Canada is updating their website so that it looks like it has kept up with change. A website whose front page looks like it's still stuck in 2004? Not to mention navigating that website... I don't know about anyone else, but I would actually appreciate...

Fortunately no one was injured.

Good job by the pilot to not put beachgoers at risk.

Re: New AOC 12yr Engine TBO

There is no need to adhere to the twelve year calendar time as it is a service bulletin. Service bulletins are not mandatory therefore disregard the calendar time. The hard time is used and if you are a new AOC it will take good maintenance and engine shop recommendations to escalate this time. Our...

Spinner "sucked" into engine on a delta flight

Re: Commuting In/Out of Uniform & CATSA

If you're on duty and in uniform with your raic then you're fine to travel with above limit items. If you're not on duty or "working" then you do not use the raic and regular limits apply. I'm pretty sure it says right on the pass itself that the passes are for work activities only. Drink beer and q...

there is more to this story than just "wet" conditions. I don't know that there is. The ground everywhere is completely waterlogged. They hoped it would dry out in time but it didn't. If it was too wet, they could have plastered the place in swamp pads and plywood, or just let people get wet and se...

Re: Advice for a 30 year old

F@ck it!

Do what you want to do. You can be positive and make a great career for yourself no matter what you do. If you have med school overseas money then you should just enroll at embry riddle and be the best damn pilot you can be, with a degree. Ray Bans not included.

Re: COPA for Kids pilots now require police check

I would say the losses have more to do with people being busy and too self involved to bother. People here complaining how a quick piece of paper from the cops is too overbearing.

Re: Music Fest at Edenvale Airport

Milan was interviewed on the news just now, and stated that the festival was planned for adjacent property which is not his.

Re: Hawaii Twin Skydive Accident, 11 dead.

They should make g recorders mandatory for jump aircraft. Constant exceedance of negative and positive g limits will make an aircraft fail.

There is always pressure to get as many jumpers in a day.
