Re: Dellen Millard trial

Yes. Each first degree murder charge adds 25 years to his parole ineligibility if convicted. Kind of. If he's convicted on the extra murder charges he will be sentenced to 25 years without parole. More often than not the sentences are concurrent to the original sentence. However the 25 years would ...

Re: Dellen Millard trial

The news says Dellen and his co accused are guilty! YES!! Justice for the Bosma family but it won't bring Tim back. Hope they both rot for life. I have no doubt that Mark Schmidt was more along for the ride, but that is still his problem. Next, Millard's pending 1st murder charges for his dad and e...

Re: Dellen Millard trial

Next, Millard's pending 1st murder charges for his dad and ex gf. Indeed! Does Millard still face prosecution for this too? Being in jail for one crime does not insulate you from prosecution for another - correct? I was at an AMO a couple of years back, chatting with a staff member. He drew my atte...

Re: RAIC - brush with the law

There is nothing about bad judgement, reliability, or marijuana anywhere in the Aviation Security Regulations.

Re: Air India ground crew sucked into engine

Come to think of it, does the average jet engine even generate enough suction at idle to lift a person off their feet? I know it would be an unpleasant place to be but never been there myself so I don't know how violent it would be. Suicide? Dunno about the A319, but this happened on an aircraft ca...

Re: VFR in IMC - Kasper Aviation

It's more likely that this operator has stepped on enough toes in their short life that they have a big target on their back now.

Re: Dos the PA-32R-301 fall under "SMEL"?

I wonder if one would need a type rating for a amateur-built with a Vne > 250, but wing loading less than 20.4. Yes. "amateur-built aeroplane" is a subset of aeroplane. It would be a high performance aircraft under paragraph a, regardless of whether it qualified under paragraph b. 101.1(1) ... “aer...

Re: Keystone Navajo Accident in Thompson

Absolutely ZERO blame should go to the fueller. Mistakes happen, but there are systems in place to detect these errors and correct them before someone dies. Uh, no. Yes, assuming the fuel was the issue the final responsibility lies with the pilot, but that doesn't relieve the fueler of the responsi...

I'd be mighty impressed if Buddy managed to do anything near what he claims other than kill me with laughter. The IFE boxes I've had to swap out on 737-800s must be less fancy than the ones he claims to have compromised. How many people even have access to Parallel or DB-9 connectors on their compu...
