Re: Use the Autofeather

Wouldn't the 4 kts relate to a feathered vs unfeathered prop? A failed engine windmilling will have more drag, more yaw and have a higher Vmca. The pilot still has to control the plane while the prop is manually feathered. Autofeather takes care of that much faster.

Re: CAR 700.16 (2) question

How many Twin Otters are actually operated 704? 9 people and a bunch of gear is enough, can't see the big need for the 10ths seat. Maybe Harbour Air is 704, but I can't see the need in the Arctic or Antarctic. Just put in 9 seats and be 703.

2 more years, and that's all gone anyway.

Re: Pilot outlook 2020-2039

If I were starting with 0 today, I'd aim to have my training done early 2022. Balance working and training to enter the aviation industry as low debt as possible spring of 2022. Might be a bit tough for the first little while as things slowly start to pick up. The aim is to be at the beginning of th...

Re: Multi Engine Training Aircraft

If I owned my own Navajo, I wouldn't want to subject my own aircraft to the sort of abuse training will do. Beat the shit out of someone else's airplane, then learn to fly your own Navajo afterwards and can treat it nicer. The Seminole and Navajo aren't a whole lot different, speeds are similar, sys...

Re: Pilot outlook 2020-2039

Between 2020 and 2039, there will probably be another prosperous time, and another recession and another prosperous time. I expect an economic recovery and back to "pilot shortage" around 2023-2025, things will go well until about 2030. Then the next "end of the world" event, rec...

Re: V1 in small twins

I've seen published balanced field and performance data for a King Air with V1, V2 and all. IIRC, it was in the back of a B200 Raisbeck supplement. The numbers weren't fantastic, 5000-7000', depending on conditions, flap setting, load, etc. Certainty didn't consider runway conditions, cause compact ...

Re: V1 in small twins

Navajo take-off on a 3500' runway can usually accelerate to Vr and stop. 3500' runway with a 500' clearway, engine fails at Vr + 5 seconds with the take-off continued will fly into the trees at the end of the clearway. The gear is down or in transit with take-off flap, even if it feathers it's self,...

Re: Jazz Dash 8 400 Freighter

Yeah hopefully, turn the air stairs into a massive cargo door if there becomes a real Q400 freighter. The rear doors needs to support flight loads from the tail, the front just needs to support the cockpit weight, no controlling and stabilizing forces.

Re: Porter Problems

Eastern Canada has their own little travel bubble as well. So no US and no Canadian east coast. That's a huge portion of their route network. Now Montreal is having troubles. Can't make a lot of money doing YQT, YQG, YAM, YTS, YOW and YTZ.

Re: Porter Problems

Management gets the union they deserve. Porter management has done a pretty good job at taking care of, and being transparent with their employees. Porter as a company is in a shit situation. Not sure what a union could do, can't make customers with a pilot contract.

Re: Lesson Learned, Unionize!!!

Aren't the Porter pilots sitting at home making CEWS while most other regional pilots go to work for what's similar to CEWS pay? We're all suffering in this crap, some a little worse than others. Porter has always been a little different, not better or worse, just different. This situation is the sa...

Re: BETTER HURRY!! THEM PPCs BE EXPIRING!!

A more experienced pilot may not be willing to tolerate that behaviour to just fly to build hours and fulfill the new pilot dream. Then said pilot will likely find themselves on EI or working outside of aviation until things pick up. As someone who has worked for a couple of these type of operators...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

Every king air and 1900 has the same basic fuel system. Exception being the original 100 and perhaps the 90 series (never flew any of the King Air 90s). So to answer your question, I'm referring to the A100, 200, B200, 300, 350, 1900, 1900C, 1900D. Transfer ALL the aux fuel into the mains. If the ma...

Re: 703 Piston Twin T/O Perf requirements

703 needs to meet "all-engines-operating-take-off-distance". No engine out performance necessary. It's perfectly legal to rotate, grab for the gear handle, experience an engine failure and plow into the trees at the end of the runway. 704 and 705 require the aircraft be able to climb over ...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

You said "It's good practice not to let the fuel level in the tanks go too low". Pretty sure that means leave a little fuel in each tank. You even went on to talk about avoiding drawing sediment or dirty fuel into the engine(s). Now if you had said to leave sufficient fuel in the primary t...

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

What about tanks that transfer into another tank? Does a king air pilot need to leave fuel in the aux tanks (contrary to the AFM)? Pretty sure this thread should have been called "how well do you know your engine(s)? Sounds like this guy knew his fuel tanks quite well, but didn't know his engin...
