Re: Air Canada Hires Influencers Promoting Travel Amid Non-Essential travel Ban

What are my policies you’re talking about Pelmet? To my knowledge I don’t have any except follow the science, but if you can find anything different you’re welcome to post them here. You might also re-read the post I was referring to as racist as well. “Plane load after plane load of future liebera...

They are the policies of the people of your political ideology. The parties on the left. The same people steamroll onto society calling everyone who opposes them as ‘Aryans’ like Old Fella and the endless racism accusations. All the while implementing what we know see in priority for life saving vac...

Re: Air Canada Hires Influencers Promoting Travel Amid Non-Essential travel Ban

I’ve never understood why so many racists deny being racist and get offended when they’re called out. It’s like they’re completely unaware of themselves but are aware on some level that being racist is abhorrent. Self aware racists don the hood and embrace it. I would like everybody to think about ...

Don't Completely Isolate Yourself From the Flight

I have seen it before. One of the pilots is on the radio communicating with company or the cabin crew(or both) with head down due to some issue for a long period of time to concentrate while the other pilot is left flying the aircraft on descent/climb. In my case, with an engine inop(at idle actuall...

Looks like our incompetents in charge have not learned a thing. How about no more flights from this country. Political correctness is more important than your parents or the economy. "For the third time in 10 days, so many passengers on an Air Transat flight from Port-au-Prince to Montreal test...

Re: CADORS Query Filter

To be honest, I find the Cadors site extremely difficult to operate when it is working properly.

Perhaps it is just me.

Does anyone else find it difficult.

I Wonder What the Forecast Was

Two and a half years ago, I had an interesting wind experience. It was my Mother's birthday and it had been cloudy with light winds all day. It is not unusual for a cold front to come through and the winds to pick up to 30 or 35 knots, but when I checked the aviation weather forecast, it said that t...

Re: Check the Ramp for Leaking oil After post Maintenance Run-up

If you're going to bother do a runup, an integral part of the exercise is to shut down, get out of the plane and get down on your knees and look for leaks. I doubt too many pilots renting aircraft after it is signed out of maintenance are shutting down and looking underneath after a run-up. That be...

From the report: "As the flight crew of the CRJ 200 lined up in position on Runway 33R and the FO finished the line-up checklist, the captain asked the FO if they had received a take-off clearance. The FO stated that they had." That should have been the end of it right there. My rule is.....

Check the Ramp for Leaking oil After post Maintenance Run-up

Several years ago, I started checking the ramp for any evidence of oil after the first engine run following a maintenance check. Simply do the run-up and then maneuver away from the run-up area with a turn in such a manner that one can see if there is evidence of a large leak. If the pilot of this a...

They hit a pole and if that's the only damage then good for them. I think it's an Archer, not a Warrior...i only say that because it says Archer II on the cowling. I’m far from an expert on all the various Piper singles named after tribes. But I did rent an Archer for a while. Maybe something to do...
