Re: Open the door, no thanks

At least "Shelter in place" has an end-goal. Had everyone sheltered for 2 weeks, this virus would have run it's course. It can't spread if people aren't exposing each other to it. Do you actually believe that as something realistic. Every store closed for two weeks, every hospital-too bad about eme...

Re: Travel restrictions in EU vs Canada

Compared to having a private lab at each major airport, these are the solutions to get us back to living a normal life where we don't have to stand 2m away from each other. Combine this with tracing technology and flying becomes pretty safe. I don't think people feel flying is unsafe. I think peopl...

You heard it here first from Pelmet...who read it on a whole bunch of right wing whackjob conspiracy websites so you just know it has to be true.

Re: Open the door, no thanks

Why does the death rate have to be worse than a bad strain of influenza for it to be worth taking action? Why does no one say we should put tens of millions out of work for a bad strain of flu in a year where the vaccine turns out to be ineffective, that would kill the same number of people. This i...

Well what are we supposed to do? Everything we do has some risk. Driving to work, sports, recreational activities, catching a viral infection etc. We can’t go on indefinitely as we are. There will be no economy and no jobs for many and a low quality of life. Folks, there is a massive scam going on....

Re: Mud swerves a plane

Think there is more to the story than mud. Plane was just converted to a tail dragger. It has drum brakes that both come on at the same time, when and if they are both working. Well, if one wheel hit mud while both wheels are equally braked then you will swerve. Or even if not equally braked. Of co...

Mud swerves a plane

I don't think I have ever landed on a muddy surface. Maybe back in the days of offstrip tundra tire flying but with the little wheels on almost all light aircraft, it seems like something best avoided for a variety of reasons, some to do with safety...

Re: Travel restrictions in EU vs Canada

The governments have chosen their policies and based on that, I want no more of the inevitable spreaders coming in en masse resulting in more shutdowns/slowdowns/detrimental effects when we are not even at stage 3 across the country. Once everything is opened up, we probably won't shut down again e...

During the initial climb at approximately 300 ASL, the engine (P&W R985) power began to degrade and the aircra...

Re: Is the Class C Control Zone at Langley Airport Dysfunctional?

Just an idea for discussion but what about more controllers with a second tower frequency if it is so bad. Maybe one controller for the circuit and pilots closer in and one to handle the initial calls and other stuff. I personally have not had a problem for the times I have been there but it has bee...

Anyone who really believed that is not smart enough to hold down a job. However comfortable they might be and whatever they might say, how stupid would you have to be to think this can continue indefinitely? So I call a mild “bullshit” on that one.
