Re: Airman vs. Airperson Discussion/Poll

You guys (and gals) have it all wrong.

Firemen are now firefighters.

Therefore, Airmen should now be referred to as Airfighters.

Re: Seaplane down with seven on board.

I don't have any first hand knowledge on this particular aircraft, but there is an STC for a third row seating in the 180/185 similar to a 206. If one of the kids was under 2, it would be legal. Whether the weight and balance could be made to work is another question, especially on floats.

Re: Amik Caravan

Does seem odd to have flaps up for a forced approach. I don't know how close to the edge of the lake that van touched down, but it should go farther in the glide with the flaps up. You know, if it was a forced approach and not forced into gentle CFIT by a low ceiling/poor vis/desire to stay 'VFR.' ...

Re: Twin otter on the ice

Having watched this twin otter struggle to depart from 3000', I expect a lot of their issues are from procedures getting in the way of operating the aircraft. Heck, it takes them 3 guys and 20 minutes just to get it running.

Re: Advice on route across Northern Canada in late July

Keep a close eye on the NOTAMs for Dawson. The Yukon Government is planning to shut it down completely for over a week for paving sometime this summer. Should be done by late July, but you never know.

Night VFR route planning software

I've been tasked with creating some routes in uncontrolled airspace for Night VFR 703 ops. CARs 703.27 states "Except when conducting a take-off or landing, no person shall operate an aircraft in VFR flight (a) at night, at less than 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle located within a horizontal ...

The strange thing is that within the same 2 day span, a King Air 200 went down in Alaska. So perhaps something to do with the Aircraft type?

Re: How do you guarantee finding that airport

I guess that’s the problem with using GPS/FMS all the time rather than the old ground speed and clock method. So there is a pilot out there who can successfully calculate their groundspeed, yet still not know where they are along a planned track? I've never understood the type of person who would n...

Re: Sault or Confed Comparison

At the end of either program, you have a CPL and no experience. Another month to get a MIFR at Cornwall, you're still in the industry years sooner if you go via confed. 4 years from now, do you want to be a 200 hour wonder, or a 1500 hour wonder?

tired of the ground nailed it. It doesn't matter what the flying you just did was, be it 705/704/703/702/604 or private, you can't exceed the limits for x amount in the previous Y timeline.

Some of these laws seem silly to me:' "700.37 An air operator shall provide a flight crew member with not less than 15 minutes every 6 hours within a flight duty period to eat and drink." It would appear the pilot is not obligated to take this time? Personally, I snack all day in cruise, and never g...

They are too tired they can say so and it dies I don’t see why people are so upset, grow a set and fill sms reports saying you are fatigued and it dies.

Yes, somehow it is also applicable to single pilot ops. Fancy way to legislate "Aviate, Navigate, Communicate"
