Re: Climb / Descent Phraseology

CAP413 refers to use of "TO" with altitude and flight level in section 3.9. Doesn't appear to say anything about "FOR" though.

This eurocontrol document:
https://www.skybrary.aero/bookshelf/books/115.pdf
says something about it on page 16, but it's not exactly what the OP asked for.

Re: Max Engine question

Right, but have you ever seen such a vilification of an aircraft by the public up to this point? While the basis of it might be rooted in fact, we cant think of it logically, social media really has a lot to do with it. Those of us who remember the DC10 issues in the late 70's and early 80's will t...

Re: TSO requirements

They said that when I mentioned that EAA has an STC to allow Dynon non TSO'd EFIS screens in certified a/c ( C172's etc) then they said " well that doesn't mean you can do that in Canada, we don't recognize all FAA STC's" One difficulty appears to be that it's the existing STC holder that has to ap...

Re: TSO requirements

Well at first they said no, it has to be TSO'd as per the original certification then when I said the 140 was certified without a radio then they said it would need a STC for any install. When I brought up the amateur build argument they had no explanation. To end it without actually going on the r...

Re: TSO requirements

photofly, everything you say makes sense, but then why are non certificated aircraft (experimental) allowed to fly in the same airspace as everyone else with non TSO'd radios? I don’t know. I find the regulations as opaque as you do. But here’s my best guess: In CAR 551 there’s no specific design s...

Re: TSO requirements

No tso required. Kx170B and ICOM 220 aren't tso"ed and they are everywhere. I would discuss this with a proper avionics shop you trust to make sure. Can you elaborate on "they are everywhere"? Given that there's a superficially identical version of both, with TSO (KX175b, A220T) are owners of type-...

Re: TSO requirements

The argument goes, that everyone else who flies in the same airspace as you has an interest in making sure that your radio: • transmits audibly • with not too much power • can hear everyone else • doesn't transmit on the wrong frequencies or create in-band or out-of-band interference for other users...

Re: TSO requirements

Installing a radio is probably a minor modification, which requires specified data, approved data, or acceptable data. Approved data includes (571.06) "type certificates, supplemental type certificates, part design approvals, Canadian technical standard order (CAN-TSO) design approvals or repair des...

You are correct: Transport Canada recognizes only one pilot as PIC. If you were receiving dual instruction that would be your instructor.

Re: High Density Altitude Takeoff.

It's not exactly the same thing, due to temperature considerations, both OAT -- it would tend to be hotter on the ground at 7000 ASL --- and in your engine when the climb commences. If the OAT is the same, the climb is the same. Obviously if the OAT is different, then it's different. That's my poin...

Re: High Density Altitude Takeoff.

Full throttle full rich at the threshold, then lean the mixture back smoothly and rapidly until you feel the acceleration peak (variable pitch) or rpm peak (fixed pitch). If your altitude is sufficiently high, a normally aspirated engine can't generate detonation at any mixture setting because the e...

Re: Short Fields

Alternatively in your scenario you could wind up in the ditch at the end of the runway because the last 150 ft of the runway was slick as warm snot and instead of stopping with 50 ft to spare you went off the end. Yes, that could happen, depending on how close to the edge you want to push things. T...

You should read the TATC case I linked to two posts ago. It's exactly on point, and answers your questions.

Breaking a rule and it being possible to prove you broke a rule are two different things. The rule you'd be breaking is 605.94(1). The fine is up to $3000 per occurence for individuals, $15,000 for companies. That's three times the standard fine. See paragraph 9 of schedule 1 for what you have to lo...
