Re: E145 Type Rating in Canada

Why would you spend millions certifying an aircraft with no customer base. At the time, the only possible customer were air canada or jazz. Both have vested interests in sucking up to the feds/pq govt.

Re: "it's just good airmanship"

PPL students are blank slates. Their only frame of reference is their instructor. Instructors set an example on every flight good or bad and I think it is something that needs more emphasis by class 1’s and CFI Last week I was number 2 behind a flight school airplane with an instructor and student....

Re: "it's just good airmanship"

Because good airmanship is nicer than saying "use Common Courtesy, Common Sense, and Think Ahead" Normally followed with the voice in your head, and sometimes ekes out "F'N Retard"

Re: Air Canada has to pay $15,000 to a couple because the word 'lift' was not engraved on seatbelts in French

We can all agree, LIFT is not a French word and it isn’t stamped into the buckle. All airlines in Canada should collaborate and put these nice people on a No Fly list. For safety reasons. Of course. Actually it is engraved on the buckle https://assets.atlasobscura.com/article_images/51369/image.jpg

I disagree, the beaver flew in what 48? 11 years and a different design philosophy. The porter on floats always being fixed, the beaver progressive inspections almost never down, the caravan a higher takeoff speed, beats the snot out itself in rough water. Even though viking is coming out with more ...
