Re: Metro Maintenance

I still prefer a Pratt Perhaps the poster could tell us the many engines the Metro comes with. I've saw the PT6 one as a concept but don't think it went into production. The TPE331 is the engine you'll probably have to maintain, different dash nos on different models. Props I'm not sure. The origina...

Re: Propeller Nicks - Repair or let be ??

why doesn't the manufacturers come up with better LE protections MT does, choose between stainless steel or nickel. I have the SS, one of my friends has the nickel. His prop has more than 400 water hours, and not a mark in it. And, the MT leading edges can be replaced if needed (as can a part of th...

Re: Blue Water Aviation plane down North of Winnipeg

Well considering this was a pre existing crack, this is more a maintenance issue than a design one. Here is the ad. TC has issued AD CF‑2020-20. However fwics it is still just a visual inspection, would not a removal/ndt every 1000 hrs be the way to go? Hell we did wing bolts on the F27 every C chec...

Re: Garneau's fireside chat and PR campaign.

You were hoping because he’s a pilot he’d give you his cellphone? Garneau is not a pilot. He was a Naval Combat System Engineer; he managed the people who fixed the guns and the RADARs. He went into space as a payload specialist; he stayed in the back of the shuttle for T/O and Landing. He served. ...

Re: Airside mischief, fuel tank filled with water

Had a commisionaire that kept jimmying the lock on our plane in YLW to put in a parking pay slip, and leaving it unsecured. I called the RCMP to report tampering with aircraft, they don't do that anymore

Re: Ramp to Pilot Position Waiting Times

Well, I did. I fully expect that the 10s of thousands of dollars I've spent on flight training will exempt me from starting from the bottom. Unfortunately it seems you were sold a lie. Even at the best of times, you could maybe expect some survey or pipeline patrol work in a 172. Most stay on to in...

Re: Canadian aircraft owned by foreign company

I believe the people who care are Border Services when an N registered jet is hangared here on a permanent basis, and even then they barely care. As long your owner has a Canadian address to register the jet to, it should be fine. Actually CBP cares not about registration, just that you pay applica...
