Re: Home made procedures

For just about everything in piloting has a procedure, sometimes a few procedures for the same operation, pick the one you like, but procedures, none the less. Aside from some avionics innovations, I can't really think of a need for a new procedure in flying a certified GA plane - it's been done be...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

No, but that is hard to compare. Only 2 pilots vs a bunch of pax. Even if they were wearing no seatbelts, chances are they wouldn't have been hurt.

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Faulty parallelism fallacy. Your equate: no seatbelt at all = no shoulder harness. You have no argument. The law is clear, and pilots use there judgment. I guarantee that the pilots on that flight didn't have their shoulder harness on and weren't injured. No I am claiming that both pax and pilots d...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Guys can wear their harness however they like in accordance with SOP/regulation and their judgement/prerogatives. 'Cause there are no overhead bins in the cockpit to hit with your head! I can't imagine not wanting to be strapped into the plane, unless there were a need to be out of my seat. Hmmm bu...

Right. Yet the shoulder harnesses in the flight deck apparently are and even give you bad posture?

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Why are we talking about the pilots? Everyone unlatched their shoulder belts above 10k unless it’s definitely going to be gnarly. Aha, thank you! I'm assuming that the other posters would do the same. Pilots don't wear their shoulder harness unless it is definitely going to be gnarly. Pax don't wea...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

But, the shoulder harness does nothing to keep you safe unless you're decelerating. It then holds your upper torso from tilting forward and prevents hitting your head on the glareshield, like a shoulder belt of a car helps when you have a head on collision. The lap belt is what keeps you in the sea...

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

I fly with pilots that routinely unhook their shoulder harnesses for whatever perceived advantage. I don't get that either. It's just more comfortable, and as mentioned there isn't a safety advantage. Curious: you are flying at FL320. There is moderate and severe turbulence forecasted in the area. ...

How come on every 5 point harness, there is a latch you can press to just unbuckle the shoulder harnesses?
Not sure if this is sarcasm, but mine don't have that anyways. It's all or nothing, yet people still mess around and untighten just the 2 shoulder ones.

Re: Commuting In/Out of Uniform & CATSA

The idea is not that you would use the knife to carsh your airplane, but that you would give the knife to another passenger on another flight so they can attempt to hijack the flight.

But it's still ridiculous. If you can do it with a butter knife, you can do it without a butter knife as well ;-)

Re: Airport Parking Ruled a Taxable Benefit

In theory what you say makes sense, but do people get taxed if they park their car for free on their employer's property? As far as I know they don't. So either the rules aren't applied properly, or the rule isn't fair. https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/businesses/topics/payroll/...

It is disgusting because you should have the right to park at your workplace when your car is the only viable means to get to work.
