Re: Chieftain Icing

Honestly though, don’t take this the wrong way, if you don’t know, this the company you work for has failed you. I don’t know of any aircraft specifically “certified to be sprayed”, Many aircraft are not certified to be sprayed. This means that the deicing liquid and anti icing liquid has not been ...

Re: Chieftain Icing

Yes, a couple operations with the ho however neither had an approved plan and all the de icing was done by the pilots with engines off, like I said a wing and a prayer. I would imagine it would be done engines off but I’m guessing. That being said it is not a requirement for 703, https://tc.canada....

Re: Chieftain Icing

Ok, fair enough, I’ve never seen the certified for anti ice/de ice stamp in any manuals or paperwork. I’ve been a Chief Pilot and Operations manager, PRM, including for start up airlines(twice). The only thing that was required in the ops manual was the plan(AGIP) for de ice, not even required for ...

Re: Chieftain Icing

Anyone here familiar with Chieftain Ground Anti and Deice programs? Is the chieftain certified to be sprayed? If so is there any literature out there that would give some guidance on policies and procedures?

many thanks!

Just like some people want to live in Canadian society and will take a lower paid job (globally), you aren't much different as you came back to Canada to stay married. Not much different. We give up some things, in order to have other things. Life is a balance. Money is not everything. Some people ...

Re: Swoop pay

Of course it's a problem. It lets a company circumvent our laws to run an unsustainable business model that skims the cherry seasonal flying to the detriment of the companies that only employ pilots with the right to work here, and somehow manage to do it year round. This puts downward pressure on ...
