Re: Licence numbers

Interesting. Mine ended with PA. 3xxxxx-PA

I thought that meant Private Airplane. Maybe it was Private Alberta.

As mentioned, in the ADB it only listed the six digit number.

Re: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh July 22-28 2019

I did not see this until now. I did not make it there again. Thank you for the offer. Three beers is quite a few these days but I managed it last week. Did you get there in time for the storms? I don't know how bad the flooding was in Camp Sholler but I suspect it dried out nicely after a few days. ...

Re: Where are all the new GA planes?

Refurbished? I'd go with the RedBird I think.



Am I the only one who thinks the pt-6 should go in a C-172?

Re: Gee Bee Racer

Did you sell the black bird? You need a nice Pitts.

A little less squirrelly and quite a bit less expensive than the Gee Bee.

Re: When to set off a PLB?

I like the SPOT or similar devices also. Of course you would not use these instead of a certified ELT but the more things you can get showing the way the better. Just like if you are on the ground signaling airplanes a mirror is best until sundown then a flare wins. Why not carry both? If I could sc...

Yeah that is pretty cool.



It's almost time at that point to just make it a single seater and fly it on board.

Re: Oshkosh 2016 - July 25 to 31

Sorry for neglecting my duty here.

Last year I just did not feel like driving the distance.
We will see this year. More likely to go to the EAA fly in in the north west.
I will alert you here if we do.

Re: RCAF History Forum

There sems to be a great deal of confusion about the fields in South Calgary. I believe Currie Barracks and Lincolin Park were one and the same. The runways East of Dewinton are shown some maps as RCAF Dewinton,and others show it as South Calgary. Yes, a flying school tried to operate at Dewinton,a...

Today's questions for Nark.
Did you find out why your lights were blinky?

And would you need a co pilot/swamper for this?

Re: Current Bird, Bucket List, Dream Job

Well, I went for my yearly check ride so I guess "nearly currently" I fly the mighty rental C-172

I won't call it bucket list because I'm not actively pursuing it. F-86 please.

I'd like to ferry light singles. Seems better than riding in rectangles with students.

How about the YBW or Vancouver to Toronto leg? I bid $1200.* Then you can pick up someone there to pay for the rest of the trip. I'll come home on Greyhound or something. * Subject to approval from my wife, highly unlikely. No budget for any extra time and fuel needed for going around a storm system...
