Re: Small Plane Hits Tower

I know of several folks living in Germany, that keep planes in canada and / or US and come over a few times a year to have a flying holiday. Germany is def not GA friendly. One can pay more for runway lights ,landing fees, and ATC for a 300 mile flight than you do for fuel! and fuel is not cheap... ...

Re: TBM Icing analysis video.

He could have flown south at 4500 or 6500 feet a few hundred miles (an hour?) in VFR! conditions. There was no pressing need to get up high other than saving fuel, as it was a turboprop. I am often boggled by the refusal to fly vfr when thunderstorms and or ice are present. It does not make you a le...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

There may be tactical reasons to recover a helo quickly, sometimes they probably practice them. I will also wait for the report. I regret the loss of life, good folks serving the rest of us.

Re: Owning and Operating a plane

I still say the cheapest flying most of us will ever do is when we rent.... Find a good school, fly a lot, like 4-5 hrs a week if you can swing it, if you can swing 6-7 hrs a week you will be done in 10 weeks. Too much to do learning to fly, to be learning to maintain and MANAGE the mtce... if the p...

Re: Closing airspace

Last time i landed there it was about 125.00 off hours, but it also had a de icing surcharge (did not need deice in July) and cost 75.00 to open the door at the fbo. that was enough....that was a few years back.

Re: Who's gotten a lay off?

The unions (if they are listening) should be doing a one time," share the flying that exists" among rated pilots. This will keep more pilots " warmed up". Senior types can probably live on one third of their flying.
Complete shutdown is gonna be hard on staff, and planes dont like to sit.
