Re: CANADA TO LIFT BAN ON BOEING 737 MAX ON JAN. 20

Thank God, that will reduce the number of ridiculous NOTAMs I have to sift through when going on a 50nm flight.

Re: 172 flap detents at 15/25 instead of 10/20

The position of the flap control is of less importance than the position at which the flaps stop from transit. The detent in the photo shows where the bottom of the flap lever arm will touch, noting that the flap lever touches at the top at zero flap position. Hopefully, the flap position pointer (...

Re: 172 flap detents at 15/25 instead of 10/20

Shouldn’t be a problem to ignore the detents, should it? Aren’t the original detents at 10 and 25? EDIT: you’re correct, 10 and 20 according to the POH. Maybe you can adjust the switch position? Moving the switch would mean the 10 degree / 20 degree markings would be wrong, and the limit would not ...

172 flap detents at 15/25 instead of 10/20

My 172N has the AirPlains SA2196CE STC for 2550 gross weight. The odd thing is that the flap lever detents are at about 15 and 25 degrees. For 10 degrees of flaps you have to move it half way to the first detent (to where it actually says 10 degrees). My AME says it looks like they used a CNC machin...

Re: Minimum Climb and Descent Rates IFR

I had a look a while ago and didn't see anything either. The FAR AIM says to contact ATC if you can't maintain 500fpm, but there is no mention of that in the Canadian AIM.

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Structural failure is more a concern with spiral dive recovery practice, which arguably gets less attention than spins do, but is related and equally as risky. Like spins, the risk can be mitigated with proper training. When students are out doing spins with passengers it a gross failure of a whole...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

If the pilot has the personality willing to spin with an out of limit CG (likely), disregarding safety rules (not enough altitude) with pax, then what makes you think he wouldn't try this if he wasn't trained for it? Because most pilots are afraid of spins before doing them. This guy discovered the...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

At the end of it, I find it a hard argument to make that training I got was too much, and others shouldn’t get it. Well there is this accident, and the other recent one where a student pancaked into a field while having fun doing spins with passengers. I don't think either would have happened if th...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Unless you are exempt... like the entire province of Quebec. Or all the manufactures in Ontario. Because everyone knows that neither produce any carbon emissions. That is because Quebec, like BC, has their own carbon tax, so both provinces are exempt from the federal carbon tax. conform to your zea...

To penalise high CO2 emitters. It's not a difficult concept to grasp.
no processing costs at all.
The administrative costs are about 2%, according to government figures.

It's the culture everywhere. Just look on here for comments about FTU's: " Go and look at all the CADORS if you want to know what they're really like" . If you feed genuine safety issues into what has become a system for pubic shaming of FTUs then you cannot be surprised if people are mot...

Re: Should have asked for the option...

Generally when something like that happens it's best to apologise and make a quick explanation. I wouldn't worry about it, I've done worse (busting YVR Harbour's airspace, as I didn't realise I was so close to it...luckily I was listening on the frequency, and quickly apologised). Anyway, sounds lik...
