Re: Algonquin Airlink

Well hello there! I'm familiar with this particular operation, so I might as well answer a few random questions. Algonquin Airlink was acquired by Private Air Inc (www.privateair.ca) a couple of years ago, and the past while has been all about flipping the planes over from the AA OC to the PA OC. We...

Re: Runaway Trim

Runaway trim is a mildly interesting one in the Citation 500 series. Basically the checklist says: 1. hold down the red button on the control column to disable the trim (the button is on the left side of the control yoke, so it's natural to use your left hand to do this) 2. Pull the electric trim ci...

Re: Having a tattoo on arm ?

Oh goodness, I'd assume that in 2017 tattoos are pretty much a non-issue. Hell, the guy who gives me my Timmy's at the drive through has piercings and stretched other things and it's normal now.

Re: "Prefer a Tired Pilot to An Inexperienced one"

I've flown with both and I'll take a new pilot over an exhausted one, 100 percent of the time. Newbies sometimes make mistakes, but they can quickly learn from them and move forward. As the level of fatigue advances, tired pilots continue to make the same mistakes. Inexperience generally doesn't kil...

Re: What was the most unusual airplane you flew?

Mu-2. Such a great plane. But certainly not usual. No ailerons. Every time you change the power, you need to retrim whole bird. During an hour long flight, you'd literally retrim all 3 axis a hundred times. A hundred. But man they are amazing machines. Fast and handle like a sports car and can get i...

Re: Ghost plane crashes near Marathon

As far as the Caravan crash goes, I am of the opinion that the pilot is alive and well. I knew the guy and he made several statements about taking a plane up north and ditching it and living off the land. There's a lot more to the story on that one.

Re: Jet/Turboprop 2nd IC hours VS Cessna PIC hours for staring pilot

I think turbine time is more important than PIC assuming you have enough PIC to get your ATPL already. I also totally agree with SRS - enjoy the ride while you`re working on your goals. Depending on how many jobs you have, you might only do a certain type of flying once in your life and it might be ...

Okay let's try something a bit new. Instead of locking the thread because of a reply that other people seem to want to jump on, let's focus on the incident itself. Does anyone have any new information about the incident or perhaps some comment that doesn't rely on another poster's comment? Hmmm....B...

Re: Number of pilots

2 pilots per plane mostly, 250 hours a year.

A couple of the planes have 1 fulltime pilot and rely on contract pilots to fill the gaps. The owners are okay with the occasional cancelled flight due to no crew.

Re: PPC Bonds

Our company policy is pretty straightforward. If you get fired for cause, you`re on the hook. Especially if it was a total dick move, whatever it was. If you are dismissed without cause, the company eats the cost. If you go to AC like a year after you get on (we have 2-year bonds) then we probably w...

Re: Crash at Iles-de-la-Madeleine

I'm fully sure on it; I kinda run a corporate charter company. You can pick up pax you haven't dropped off, as long as they end up in Canada. Every pax has to start or end (or both) in Canada, and then it's legal. I think we can only pick up passengers down there that we dropped off, but not fully s...

Re: Crash at Iles-de-la-Madeleine

A really easy cabotage rule of thumb for a Canadian operator is that for us to operate in the USA on charters, all our pax must either start or finish their journey in Canada. We can't pick up in the USA and then drop those pax off in the USA, they gotta come to Canada on the same trip. Same applies...

The MU-2 can handle icing just fine actually. Only plane to ever have 2 known icing certification reviews, and passed both times. I've got about 1,100 hours in the thing. I'm going to guess this was CFIT rather than contamination, but that's based on no actual information. So sorry for the friends a...

Re: The missing Caravan

The ELT was activated immediately after departure. It tracked the aircraft flying in a straight line northward for 5 hours til it ran out of gas. If it was an emergency, it was a hell of a long one.
