Re: Mounting Wooden Propeller

About 3 years ago I had the same task, with almost an 8' prop., found the same webpage, and copied those plans. Made the hub about 1/2" smaller than the prop hub (to hide it) and used 6 dowels (2 with the split screw locks). I painted the edges of the 3/4" plywood with the same paint as the wall and...

Forsale DC Headset, 2 Place Intercom, PTT, YVR

David Clark Headset. I don't know the model number but I would guess it's a 10-30. Its about 20 years old. The mic was replaced just before we quit using it 15 years ago. It has volume control. I just tested it (as best I could) and it works fine. Its in good used condition. Asking $49. Telex PC 2 U...

Re: The Air Academy

I've been there... The sim is great. I know 2 guys who have done their renewals there. Thinking of using them this year for annual reviews and cutting some plane time.

Worth calling...

Wow, 2 posts in one day!

Re: How's Cooking Lake these days?

About as different as you can imagine, and for the much better! I would call Cooking Lake the 'Sleeping Giant' of Alberta flight training. New owners, new airplanes, new ideas, etc. Its worth a drive out, IMHO.

Go teach in the sim. Most 'newer' instructors want to avoid the sim to get the flying hours. You can come in, do the sim work, make guaranteeded dollars, and it has no effect on your duty time. From what I understand, if you are using your commercial license, for hire or reward, all the time countrs...

If NAIT is dead, try MRC in Calgary. I do work there so I might be a little bias... but it's a good program.

Where-ever you go for a diploma, make sure you can us whatever schooling you get towards a degree later.
