Re: DHC6 autofeather

My thoughts on this would be, According to the Viking AFM for the 300's a single engine go-around must not be conducted once more than flap 10 has been selected. A normal landing is between considered between flap 20-37.5 . 3 things need to happen to activate the AFX system a) its turned on b) torq...

Re: First Conviction for Unsafe Drone Operation in Canada!

I saw some moron testing out his drone on the roof parking lot of Richmond Center the other day. I went up to him and tried to politely inform him that it's against the law but I got told to "@#$! off." Call the RCMP! Yup, call the cops IMMEDIATELY. Then, give the cops the CARs reference and your g...

DHC6 autofeather

Question: have a pretty big debate with some colleagues:

How come, on the twin otter, the autofeather system is not armed on the approach part of flight. Would it not be usefull duing a go-around? Can’t find anything in the POH.

Re: Tie Down etiquette at a new airport.

Best thing is to call the place up and ask. Give them a heads up that you'll be coming in and transiting for the day or staying overnight. Busy places appreciate the heads up, allows them to prep a tie down or parking spot. Also, many GA friendly airports often waive the ramp fee or even 1st night t...

In all fairness, if it took 3 tries to pass almost 2 years ago, I'd think maybe it would be prudent for that person to simply write it again before trying to get signed off as a commercial pilot, instead of trying to find a way around it.
Yup, what he said

Re: Handling of power on take off and landing.

Some company SOPs, mainly overseas like the Caribbean some African operators are those that come to mind, have both hands on yoke after power was advanced to XX % NG or whatever initial setting they used. The captain would then set the power and guard the powers. If the captain was PF, he would guar...

Driving home after a flight today, my head was in the clouds. I was thinking about what we've learned during our first flying job. What was the biggest thing (or multiple things) that you've learned at your first flying gig. Or second/third gig for that matter. Things that blindsided you that you wi...

Re: What is the wait time......

If you're waiting more than 3-4 weeks, shoot TC an email with your details asking when you can expect it, as you need it for work. My philosophy is always to email or call them, gets the gears turning for some reason.... all the time.

My suspicion is, if he/she can't be bothered to return it after a whole month, then they probably lost it and making excuses. Does the instructor seem responsible enough to not lose such a document?

Re: Licence renewal time

Make a phone call to your regional TC office, or send an email. Usually that unclogs the drain and magically, I get my stuff within the week of the call/email. I usually include my license number, name and DOB, for identification purposes if by email.

Flight Safety

Greetings all,

For anyone who's been to FS for a type rating, do you know if the study material on their online Flight Bag is accessible permanently or only for the duration of your course? Just curious to know if I can still access it in the future for refreshing or clearing things up.

Thanks
