Re: P-3 or CP-140?

CT156 Harvard II was entered as TEX2... This made me chuckle. Shouldn't it be PC9? Just kidding...just kidding.... If it were a PC9, yes. But it’s not. They’re different with different designators. https://www.icao.int/publications/DOC8643/Pages/Search.aspx True in a sense but it' not always the ca...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

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: P-3 or CP-140?

When I flew Metros, ATC sometimes called them Merlins, and when I flew 1900s they sometimes called them Super King Airs. In every circumstance, I always filed a complaint directly with the Minister of Transport. :roll: Before they added the type designator "B190", the Beech 1900 was filed as BE02, ...

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...

Re: Mid-Air Collision Near Ottawa

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...

Re: Mid-Air Collision Near Ottawa

Looks like TSB released the report. Blames it mostly on no radio calls coming from the Cessna. Also looking to mandate flight recorders in GA aircraft. https://copanational.org/en/2019/05/02/tsb-releases-non-conclusive-report-on-carp-midair/?utm_source=wysija&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=eFlight-2...

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 ...

All this talk about radio calls....

Radios don’t prevent collisions, your fucking eyeballs prevent collisions; so use them.
Radios will give you a better situational awareness to augment the use of just your eyeballs. Why not make things safer?

Re: P-3 or CP-140?

My understanding from the Aurora guys is that they give their type as P-3 because when they work internationally everyone knows what a P-3 is; nobody has heard of a CP-140. The Twin Otter guys and Dash 8 guys don’t give their type as CC-138 and CT-142 for a similar reason. Wouldn't most people, at ...

Ahhh, that makes sense! He was speaking the identifier, rather than the type!

I would suspect that the climb gradients have to do with getting above the protected airspace associated to the IFR procedures at YTZ, YZD and YKZ airports.
