Re: Were airlines sacrificed for the Nation ?

That said, nobody knows. I see more positives than negatives for the younguns, but it will depend on attitudes, as it always has. Not sure that I necessarily agree...I wonder how many of the young'uns will fold the tent after a large downturn like this where they might potentially be out of work fo...

Re: New hire bids

How deep could it bite, though? Last recession we went through was in '08, and that was largely cured (as I understand it) by printing money, and slashing interest rates. Now that everyone is loaded up with debt, and interest rates are essentially zero, how do they stave off the next recession? Havi...

Re: Anxiety

About 2 years ago now, I had a major depressive episode. SSRIs were the first line of counterattack for me, and also a series of intensive counselling sessions. My medical was 'suspended' immediately, and remained so for a year. I've been back on line for almost a year now, but am restricted to flyi...

Re: Who here has been ramped by TC?

More of an urban legend than anything else but in ancient times a new hire DOT (before TC) inspector was supposedly visiting Grace Lake, The Pas Manitoba.

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

I would say allowing the airspeed to drop below Vmca after an engine failure cause the airplane to roll over and he lose control. Pure speculation (‘cos that’s what we do here...) Almost 900 miles from California..too much air in the tanks? Anyone have the numbers for useful load for an Aerostar? S...

ILS question

Having a discussion at work: are you allowed, legally, to fly an ILS down to circling minimums, using an autopilot? That is, can you engage the A/P in approach mode, have it fly a coupled approach, and then hit altitude hold or disconnect at the MDA, and (assuming that you have the ceiling/vis) brea...

Yup. That would actually solve the problem. If people move, eventually wages would have to go up or housing prices would need to come down. Ain't gonna happen in Vancouver.

Re: Instrument and instructor training at the same time?

My opinion, FWIW, would be to do one at a time. Looking back, my 1st IFR was a bit of a struggle - lots of new stuff to learn and think of, and all the while still using a fair amount of CPU time just to keep 'er straight and level. After a year and a half instructing, and then 6 months on a 185, my...

Re: Another Norseman...gone

I always wanted to fly a Norseman, despite my peers asking why the heck I wanted to do that. I figured that once I'd learned my craft well enough on 180/185/-2/-3/-3T, then someone would see fit to let me touch a Noorduyn. Sadly, my career has moved past that point now, but I'd like to think that th...
