Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

Sounds like a a partial panel situation with the low weather being a factor. A graveyard spiral is a spiraling dive that can happen when you become disoriented, and when you have little or no visual reference to the horizon. Unfortunately, lots of graveyard spirals end with the airplane impacting t...

Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

The CB issue is a big one this time of year. Imagine how bad the fuel economy is when you are flying off course. Resonance issues are a big problem. Remember that bridge that collapse. Some engineers are really sweating this one. Imagine the bad press when an uncontained engine failure send shrapnel...

Re: When is Air Transat likely to resume flights

It is possible Trudeau would let a hundred airlines fail if it meant saving one life. We might question it but many of his base would agree so we should not be surprised if this is his policy. Women and urban male vote count just as much as your vote.

I hear AC 767 are going to Amazon so probably will fly again. Though not in Canada since I doubt they could do it cheaper than Cargo Jet.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

When the Snowbird crash in Atlanta last year there was issues with the ejection sequence as well. From a Dec. 1, 2019 article on Avweb: Domon-Grenier was taken to a hospital as a precaution but released that evening. He reported “anomalies” with the ejection but the RCAF did not elaborate on what we...

Do you happen to know if the military pilot are trained not to attempt low altitude turnback after an engine failure on takeoff like civilian pilot are?

If true that is very sad. I feel terrible for the innocent passenger on board who had no say in the stunt. The record for lowest pass has been set and can not be beat. And 3000 meter below the ocean does not count.

No disrespect, but are you sure that’s a question you want to ask after 2013? FWIW, I wouldn’t hesitate to ride with 440 Sqn or Borek. Now, can you show some respect and stop with the military/non-military pilot nonsense? I didn't bring up the military/non-milatary topic I'm just responding to some...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

Luckily there is some overlap between civilian and military so we can compare apple to apple. Like would you rather get in the back of a twin otter and go to the north pole with a 20000 hour Kenn Borek captain or an RCAF twin otter pilot with "excellent training"?
