Re: Several snowplow runway incursions lately

JZA 447 2009C0564

It's been two years, surely the class 3 investigation must be complete. Does anyone know where to view such a report? Or, do we need to look under the rug?

There was also the B99 C-FRQI back then. It was rare to see it in Inuvik though.

The Northern Living allowance. Basically, you can declare $15 per day per household or $7 per day per person as a tax deduction. There is also a travel deduction allowed for two trips out to a maximum of I think $2400. Thats it. Also, Alkan does take on low time guys, it looks like they may require ...

Re: Heathrow crash B777 Captain Peter Burkill rejoins BA . .

I ordered "Thirty Seconds to Impact" from Pete Burkill's website. Great book, a real eye opener to what can play out when things go wrong. The interview on the Flight Global link above is significant in the fact that this was exactly what BA would not allow him to do after the accident. Some public ...

I can't believe nobodies pointed this out in either "Granny Gas" discussion. There is nothing wrong with taking fuel when you want it. Just take less Fu$king freight! It's the cost of business.

The drive to Braeburn Lodge is worth doing once. They claim the worlds largest cinamon buns. I think they are up to $8 a piece now. It's about 1 hour north of town and would tie in good with a hot springs trip. Or, you could rent a sled and hit the hills with some of us locals. But, then you wouldn'...

Only RA's are inhibited at low level (1000 feet on decent and I believe 500 feet on take off). TA is still available provided the necessary transponders are on.

I asked around a little today. Mid Canada Aerial Contractors was owned by Terry Harold. Gordon Sherman may have piloted the Invader. He later went to Air Spray. These names were from distant memories and may not be fact (although I don't think I've ever seen this guy be wrong).

Re: Helijet Nose Gear Problem.

I watched that happen from my cockpit across the apron. That was this summer in Sandspit. I have to say, I was a little concerned for the AME that was pulling on the gear. Nice job by the driver though.
