Re: Winter out east.

When I checked the Metar last night it was 85G//. I would assume the // means to high to record but I’m not sure. Either way 85kt sustained wind is quite impressive.

Re: Stuck above the clouds with no instruments

The spin method was brought up at the hangar a few times when I was learning to fly gliders. It could work. That being said, when I was a flight instructor I saw plenty of students put themselves into a spiral dive when trying to spin a 172.

Re: Westjet CYHZ

The LDA for runway 14 at YHZ is 7700 ft, but what about the fact that the touchdown point for an ILS is not at the threshold? On a light twin you can chop and drop once you're visual (within reason), but what about the big guys? With a stabilized approach following the glidepath right to the ground...

Re: Midlife Career Change

I had about 25 hours of my 200 for my cpl flying cadet famil flights, everything paid for by the Canadian tax payer. Transport didn’t have a problem with it, and they were aware of it. That was in 2010.

You can all criticize the captain for not allowing her to fly, but it was the right move. If you cannot ascertain whether the girl is fit to fly, you don't let her fly. It is not a call for MedLink if you are at the gate... it's the call for a doctor who can actually see the girl in person. Assumin...

Re: From Float flying to Airlines?

I actually know of an individual who went direct q400 post float flying but I wouldn't expect that to occur very often. In all honesty if your goal is to get to the airlines this probably won't be the fastest path. In my opinion however the extra year or two will definitely be worth the wait. I kno...

Re: Cold Weather Corrected Missed Approach Altitude

The civilian rules are pretty vague. It only states that in conditions of “extreme” cold temperature, all altitudes should be corrected. What about in not “extreme” cold temperature but below 0? Where is the transition to “extreme”? The military rules are more definitive. Read page 183 of the GPH20...

Re: Cold Weather Corrected Missed Approach Altitude

To me, the reason to correct the MAP alt is for comm failure. In any radar controlled airspace you're never going to get the publish missed. If you call in the missed, they will give you an altitude, but if your radios shit the bed at that precise instant, you need to CYA, (and the A's of the peopl...

Re: Cold Weather Corrected Missed Approach Altitude

It is an ATC assigned altitude in a radar controlled environment. If one were to cold weather correct a MA altitude, should we start cold weather correcting a SID altitude as well (rhetorical)? That’s fine to say but where is that written? How is it an ATC assigned altitude if they don’t say anythi...

I’ve always found the not correcting the missed approach altitude interesting.

I’ve flown into airports with rad...
