Re: Canadian sources for interior plastics

Vantage Plane Plastics, they are in Oklahoma, but they make it all. I believe Kadex can get it in for you if you don't want to deal with customs yourself

Re: DH4 Better do a final door check yourself

There is a Service Bulletin out to rework the door handle that gives you a more visual indication that the handle is properly and fully locked and stowed, and a positive latch engagement. I'm curious if any handles that have been modified have popped open in flight

Re: How are those PA-31 Cowls

There is an AD on the nose baggage door that if I remember right, the lock has to be replaced every 1000 hours and the new locks, you can't remove the key unless its locked. There is also a 100 hour repetitive inspection component to the AD.

Re: WestJet introduces WestJet Link

I really don't see what the big issue here is. These are destinations that are too small for Encore to fly the Q to, and I assume since Prince George was served by 737 in the past, if they thought they could fill even a Q there from Calgary, it would be Encore as well. It is bringing more guests in ...

Whelan lights are STC'd for most common GA aircraft already. They fit right in to the current installation. Only thing to remember is they are polarity sensitive

Re: Boeing 777 Endorsement Course

What is up lately with all those AME's looking to go on endorsement courses? Why would anyone pay for these out of their own pocket, let your employer send you and pay. This is no better than pilots paying for their own training. Is that really the road we AME's want to go down?

Re: Canadian AME releasing American machines

I could be wrong, but as far as I know, if you are signing it out under a Canadian AMO with a Canadian AME license, you can't sign anything out with an endorsement. Sorry, no CAR's reference for that though. If you have an A&P, you can do it though, however, it is on your license and not the AMO.
