Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

In my opinion the snow birds are out dated and the equipement is boring and outdated as well. Either shut them down or update them. They seem to have taken on this mystical Canadian thing like Tim Hortons. How many social media generation people actually know who Tim Horton was. A successful ejecti...

Well, well... Watch these two pros!

I think these two deserve to be fired or at the very least be suspended without pay for an undetermined time... The 1000 foot call is heard (EGPWS), then 14 seconds later one of the pilots ask for "Gear Down" which makes me wonder at what altitude they were at when the gears were down and locked. I ...

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

It should be representative. We fly the same planes in the same airspace. The only difference is we are allowed to fly considerably longer days and for the most part, we have higher living/ housing costs. The only reason it isn’t, is because a few large management companies seem to be suppressing w...

Bad news for Boeing and its MAX...

Europe's aviation safety watchdog will not accept a US verdict on whether Boeing's troubled 737 Max is safe. Instead, the European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) will run its own tests on the plane before approving a return to commercial flights. Hope Canada does the same thing. https://www.bbc.com/n...

These people are nothing but trouble makers that look at anything they can to stir sh!t.

I would love to meet these two idiots and let them have a piece of my mind... Total disgrace to the majority of French speaking Canadians and Quebecers.

Re: A shout out to SAR - Thanks for being there! SR-22 CAPS deployment

Great story!

Glad he was well prepared and he came out uninjured. Great thinking on filming the rescue for others to see and learn from.

How cool was that to see that low Flying Hercules above the trees?

Great work from the SARs crews.

What is piss poor single engine performance? Either it can climb out from a v1 cut at the weights and airports it operates at or it can't. Are you saying it cannot?
I was told by someone that flies the Herc in the Forces, that the C-295’s single engine performance when loaded up is marginal.

The Comet crashed because of metal fatigue something not well known then and yes passengers and crews paid dearly for it and so did the plane.

Re: 1000 hrs ! ??

Can we know who's in the race?

The only year I flew that much was on the DHC-7 at City Express... 1200 hours a year and believe me if they could made us fly more we would have been close to 1500 hours.

We used to get called daily by screw sked to see how many hours on that day we could give them.
