Re: Ratings in what order?

A) you don’t need a PTR after your PPL, once you have a license you don’t need a PTR your logbook will suffice. B) 300nm cross country doesn’t need to be done under supervision C) if all of your ratings were done by instructors on an adhoc basis and not through a flight school that’s still legit as ...

Re: Realistic TT for Jazz or Encore?

I'm shocked how pilots these days have no integrity... and no patience... jumping on bonds to go regional ASAP before they've truly learned the fundamentals of flying!

Re: Manitoba Govt Air Services to be Privatised

Would a Citation 11 wide door do the job? B.C. Govt used these for years though I don't know the cost structure compared to the King Air. MB government already runs their own Citations, the problem is they run them 604 not 703/4 so they can’t meet the landing distance on the chart when the commerci...

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

I wonder if the torque profile of an electric motor would allow the use of a fixed pitch prop? Beavers fly in a narrow speed window, so wouldn't be drastic here. It's not like you need to decrease engine RPM to gain drastic efficiency or decrease engine wear either. Electric motors are generally pr...

I'm quite curious about how much smaller the noise footprint will be with sound coming from just the prop.
judging by how loud drones are I'd say not much less, a 2 blade 185 is one of the loudest airplanes there is on takeoff and its all from the prop.

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

Better hope you ever get a “Batt hot” light up front.

As for the batteries sustaining themselves long term, I used to be a pretty negative person towards them but some really high mileage Toyota Prius’s have proved me wrong.

Re: Air Canada grounds Boeing Max 8s until at least July 1

Most contracts have a “force majeure” clause in it which I’d think a complete grounding of a portion of the fleet could be argued in court would trigger.

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

If there is an operation where the distance between legs will allow this to make sense it’s probably harbour air. The most interesting thing for me is how an electric motor will hold up to the corrosion of a salt water life
