TC's online bill payment thingy

Does anybody have a link to the address? Does anybody know what I'm talking about? The site you can use to pay your medical online......aka electronic rape. My ass already hurts and I haven't even paid it yet.

Re: Boeing 767 More Fuel Efficient than Airbus 330, Analysis

What else would you expect from a study funded by Boeing? They are trying to win a major contract. They probably used the same "independent analysists" that tobacco companies use when they need to produce a report showing that smoking doesn't cause cancer.

What did you get your 1000 float hours on? 1500TT and 1000 float should get you straight into a Beaver but it wouldn't hurt to have a little bit of time on type too.

a portion of the right maingear was replaced six days before that accident -- using parts intended for the nose gear. The parts were "reconfigured by maintenance personnel" for use by SAS on the main gear, according to the report. How could they possibly attempt to blame Bombardier when they were p...

I can never believe how little talk there is of alternatives especially in aviation, because at this point it is unlikely that airplanes will ever run on anything other than fossil fuels. All climate change issues aside, oil is non-renewable which means at some point we are going to run out. I can't...

Yeah I saw it. Sounded just like TC aviation. Everytime the guy called to clarify something he got a different answer. Basically it's a low speed car (top speed of 50km/h). They're selling like hotcakes all around the world but TC won't give them the approval to sell here. So there's no point in hav...

Looking to do MIFR in eastern Ont

Can anyone help out with a few schools that offer this and give a recommendation. I know there's a place in Cornwall, pretty sure there has to be a couple in Ottawa. What about Kingston/Belleville/Peterborough? I can stay in either Brockville or Belleville.

There was an article on this a few years ago in Canadian Aviator, just before AOG went under I think. It was called the Hot Wings Caravan and they definitely had one flying.

I've got an S5 but haven't done any long exposures with it yet. Done lots with SLR's though. Definitely use a tripod. I always found it helps to have a bit of a moon to light up the foreground. At 100 ISO I was usually shooting around 30-45 sec at f/3.2 - 4 - there's a fair bit of guesswork with tim...
