Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Wow! Single pilot IFR in the Bush! Incredible. I remember doing that a decade ago too. If you read my post again, I simply stated that as a pilot for many airlines around the world, if you are fully configured by 1500 feet, you are not following SOP’s. It is too early. I’m happy for you your compan...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Certainly unprofessional for the FO to be filming. Also, maybe the other camera was a jumpseater? (I hope). As for stable at 1500 feet? You will be on the shit list at many airlines around the world if you are dropping the gear before 1500 feet. Just because your airline says it’s too dangerous for...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

I haven’t said that stabilized criteria are depicted in time but they sure are based on time. If it were only based on altitude, without regards for airspeed, density altitude and glide slope, it would be meaningless. Perhaps yours is 1,000 ft AGL but I can guarantee you that someone, somewhere dec...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Did it occur to you that they may be arriving over higher terrain and approaching downhill? So, a 1000 foot call by a RAD ALT might not be 1000 feet above the touch down zone elevation? Your stabilized approach criteria are not the rest of the worlds stabilized approach criteria. I suggest you see ...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Plenty of time? Based on what? Stabilization criteria is not based on time, but height. For us, by 1,500 fully configured. 1,000 fully stable. By 500, speed stable (if given a speed by ATC). I don’t know how they operate, but I’ll check, as we have many pilots from their airline now working with us...

Re: Jazz....Just couldn't get it stopped?

Doc, you're being attacked, and so is your history (which is no one's bi'niss), for the sake of hiding the truth about this accident. As el comat said, we don't have real answers why the dude behind him ran into him. I flew dashs, and I recall them having FDRs and CVRs (correct me if I'm mistaken el...

Keep it real, keep friendly, and don't sleep with all the F/As. Enjoy the ride, cos once you're at the top of your game, you will only go downhill from there.

Re: GTA Area - wanna fly me to Harrisburg on Friday?

I should have qualified that: There are no reasonably-priced direct flights from Toronto. With taxes etc, the cheapest AC tickets add up to $1,760.52 Spending $1,760.52 for 2 tickets in a B1900 for a 90 minute flight seems a little insane, hence my post. I appreciate your efforts toward reducing AC...
