Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

he had the old King KI-256 and KFC200 autopilot if I recall. If that failed and tumbled it should have kicked off the AP before turning you into the ground, but the flight director may have been trying to correct it for a couple of seconds. Might make sense for the sharp turn and pitch up suggested ...

Heard Nanaimo Aerostar . Based in Alberta .

Very sad .....
I was hoping this wasn't the case, but I know he has the tracking turned off.

Very sad indeed and hitting much closer to home if that is the case.

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

Flightradar shows it was 26,000 from California/Nevada area.
The data was hidden, but I have some suspicions who it might be and have sent some emails and calls out.

Tragic loss for sure.

Heading north evidently when the track was lost. Look like it was on the approach into Nanaimo.

Prior accident and going professional

What is the impact of an insurance claim/incident on potential to being hired as a commercial pilot? Incident was a runway excursion with no injuries and was 6 years and several hundred hours ago.

thanks

Re: Looks like we are going to have to get the expensive ADS-B

Ugh, sounds about right. I have been waiting for them to provide guidance on the diversity aspect for months, but ended up with a GTX345 installed now.
Hopefully they come up with an add-on device that can multiplex the output of the single antenna unit to two antennae.

GA into Edmonton

Hey,

I have an upcoming flight into Edmonton for work.

Flying a light single engine, is YEG or ZVL the better choice? Meeting is downtown, so getting a taxi either way.

Hi, I am considering purchase of an aircraft from the US. Some of the logs are missing, primarily those before 2000. ( aircraft is a 1978 ) Logs for current engines and current props are complete. Missing some STCs or 337s on equipment installed. Price of the aircraft reflects this reality. There is...

Re: Port Hardy terminal services fee

Looking at this further, those fees listed should only be for turbine or jet aircraft. I'll have to give them a call I suppose. My aircraft type shows as M20T.

Re: Port Hardy terminal services fee

Sorry, you are correct is was transport Canada. I had a nav can bill for something else the same day. Aircraft was a piston mooney on IFR flight. No passengers.

Interesting as I had not received invoices for this airport or others listed on the link provided either ( penticton, etc )

I just got an invoice in the mail from Nav Can for 'terminal services fee' for landing at Port Hardy a month ago. When did the come in as I have been in and out of there several times in the past with no charges. I also thought these kind of fees were only for larger aircraft or commercial operators...

Re: Dual yokes for training

Is flying dual for insurance purposes considered training? Are IPC rides training? Would a flight test for multi IFR be a training flight?

Not trying to be difficult, but want to understand the interpretations.

Dual yokes for training

Hey,
Looking at some Beechcraft products and have a question for initial transition training, IFR and IPCs.

Are dual yokes required? Many aircraft I am considering have the single swing-over yoke. I think the rules are a little different in the US.

Thanks,

Re: ADS-B Weather vs XM Weather Canada

Anybody have confirmation on whether Canada will require diversity antennae for their system? I need to upgrade my transponder as part of a panel upgrade, and don't want t replace it again in 4 or 5 years. I will need ADS-B compatbility for the US regardless.

Re: ADS-B

Do you know any other transponders supporting diversity aside from the Lynx? I know there was a Garmin 330DES that has this option, but not seen many or any others. Lynx is very nice, but also very expensive for features that we can't receive in Canada.

We've been grounded since Thursday in Moncton. I guess all the fuel comes from that one refinery in Alberta.
Are you grounded due to lack of fuel, or to fear of damage or operational issues?

Re: Avgas

Have any actual performance issues or damage been noted? I have flown with this fuel several times in the last month with no issues, but I have float type level sensors.

Hopefully it is not a bunch of ethanol in the blend.

Is anyone staying grounded because of this?
