Re: Wasaya caravan missing

You guys are so right, we should really abolish the Caravan and go back to a better time when there were only Beavers, Norsemen, Navajos to get the job done. Back then there were no accidents. Unless there's a book called King Air 200, The Sw...

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

I see a lot of comments about him being green or new. FWIW this wasn't his first winter in the North. I believe he had been flying in YQT (on the PC-12) since the summer of 2010.

Re: ORNGE. Question

I was flying around YQT a few month back. I heard pulse call centre when they leveled off, centre asked to confirm if they were 'medevac' or not and the response went something like 'nope we aren't, sorry just used to saying it'

I'm waiting to hear 'Pulse trainer 1 medevac' Lol
