Re: Another example of the bad info pilots can be given

Speaking of bad info.... "C-FIQR, an ATR 42-300 aircraft operated by First Air, was flying FAB802 according to the instrument flight rules from Iqaluit, NU (CYFB) to Igloolik, NU (CYGT) with 3 crew members and 7 passengers on board. While the aircraft was in cruise flight at FL200, the flight attend...

Re: Who has the right of way when taxiing

Same as in the air: the aircraft on the right, has the right. If the other dude was approaching you from the right he had right of way. I have to admit that I thought that the right of way rules applied to the air only. I don't disbelieve you but is there anything written in the CAR's/FAR's that sp...

The TSB?

They take forever to release any findings but maybe eventually they will share it with the public.
Looks like they are getting quicker. That being said, an analysis and Probable Cause(which the NTSB is mandated by law to provide) would be nice.

That's blatantly not true.
I’m at least 7 generations or is the conservatives say “old stock”
One of my friends can trace himself back like a dozen generations it's quite interesting. They're from the Queen Charlotte Islands.

Way too low an approach for an unfamiliar night arrival. One can use the IFR approach even if VFR, will assure safe clearance from terrain.

Re: Water in Fuel question

because fuel is available again? I would think so. Water can be pumped through an engine, but is not fuel - it displaces fuel. If the water runs out, and fuel is allowed to be pumped through the engine, you've got fuel! Add fire and oxygen, and it should run. A windmilling engine can be expected to...
