You guys (and gals) have it all wrong.

Firemen are now firefighters.

Therefore, Airmen should now be referred to as Airfighters.

Strange there were fatalities, as it looks relatively intact / survivable.
I think all of the fatalities were up front. There's no flight deck area left.

Re: Navcanada discontinuing approaches at under-serviced airports

Are the provincial medevac authorities being squeezed for money by NavCanada? How can Nav Canada "squeeze" anyone for money. The whole organization runs on user fees. By act of parliament they can't make a profit. All they are capable of doing is determining where the money goes (and doesn't go any...

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

Get rid of your celphone and get a landline. People lived that way for a very long time. I know for a millennial its daunting just to imagine doing so, but "Flight Safety" depends on it! Not anywhere near millennial age and (thankfully) got rid of my landline 15 years ago...I love generalizations.

I think the pilot was thinking of hydraulic lock which only happens with downward facing pistons like the bottom one on a radial engine, not a horizontally opposed engine...but I'm no mechanic.

Re: Jazz Dash 8 and Menzies Fuel Truck Collide in YYZ

How did hit the plane all over like that? Jazz taxing to fast. If they'd taxi at 7 kts or less like I do it wouldn't have happen. No different than the Toronto yahoos going 100 km/hr on 401. Cut speed to 50 and be less accidents and lower insurance premiums. If you've ever held an AVOP (airside veh...

So, pilot joining circuit doesn’t hear any radio calls, figures he’s alone, doesn’t bother doing a proper lookout, turns downwind, runs over other aircraft. Also, pilot on downwind doesn't see aircraft twice the size of his approaching from the left and then runs into it and dies. Dude, what is wit...

Looks like TSB released the report. Blames it mostly on no radio calls coming from the Cessna.

Re: Mid-Air Collision Near Ottawa

If radio calls are considered that primary to the TSB, why are NORDO aircraft even legal? Basically because the TSB can't tell TC what to do otherwise it likely would be. I'm sure the TSB's primary objective is to minimize risk as much as possible and obviously flying NORDO adds an additional risk ...
