Re: O-200 cold weather starting

So for cold weather starts I suggest carb heat on, primer armed to help keep it going and at least 1000 RPM. The carburetor is low in the cowling with very little engine heat to help with atomization of the fuel. So with carb heat on you reduce the amount of cold air blasting into the carburetor. I...

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this. Assuming all else is the same, how does a higher octane fuel result in a richer mixture?

Re: Switching from PPL to RPP

When you say written, there is the PPAER and RPAER. I don't know that you can use the PPAER to get a rec license. So not only are you doing the flight test twice, you may also have to do the written twice. CARS 421.22 (3): An applicant shall have obtained a minimum of 60 percent (60%) in each of th...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

I believe Canada is in the minority of countries that still require spin training, however I tried to find some statistics to back this up, but failed. Other countries have moved to more of stall awareness and prevention. Even the stall training we do is negative training since we ignore the stall h...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Spin recovery should be taught to all pilots. However, there is no training benefit to holding a plane in for even a whole turn. Train the entry, train the recognition, train the recovery, that's all you'll need for normal PPL/CPL stuff. Agreed, except recovering after 1/2 turn leaves you pulling o...

Re: Flight training still open during Ontario province-wide lockdown?

That's because in Burlington, the Court recognized that the Airpark was just trying to use IJI as a work around to store aggregate. They had no intention of using it to make a runway. The Court saw through their scheme and ruled accordingly. Not really. The initial suit argued that the City had the...
