Re: E145 Type Rating in Canada

This is the list that you're looking for:

My guess is that they didn't want to recognize it because it would have hurt CRJ sales in the Canadian market.

Re: Park Brake on for Takeoff

I can only assume that there is a before takeoff checklist. What is the crew doing with the PB set after this checklist is done? It's a huge no-no along with reconfiguration of flaps, spoilers (yes I know, not on this airplane), and trim after the checklist has been completed. Maybe there is no take...

It's a wonder that this hasn't happened sooner. Their training instructors and pilot group are B-team. These guys have been absolutely struggling with these jets ever since they put them online in 2016.

Re: Atlas Air 767

Doesn't the 767 have a "Go Around" annunciation or something similar on the PFD? GA will become active in pitch and roll. Annunciated on the Flight Mode Annunciator. It was probably in the heat of the moment for them, but always, always, always check the FMA is you want to know "what mama's doing."...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

You cherry picked a fatal event which might have had a marginal chance of survival (at best) to illustrate your point that following a QRH is a bad idea. I'd like to point out doing a QRH and landing are not mutually exclusive. In a time critical scenario the crew can set the aircraft up for an imm...

Re: Best place for multi IFR training??

Are there not 20 FP save slots in the 430? I flew a 402 for a well-known operator down south. The 430 was up on battery power and the FP preloaded before start. 2300 hours, never lost the FP upon start. The PA44 can be operated the same. A tip for IFR instructors...if you want to play airline...then...

Anyone that's taught Indians or have had close dealings with their flight training know this already.
