Re: okotoks flight school

Your right, the manual definitely needs amending.
Can you do all aviation a public service and get them to amend the manual?

Just funning with you CWE. You’re not the only old bored cantankerous guy-on these forums.

Re: okotoks flight school

I admitted ignorance only to what was referred to on page 111 of some nameless flight manual. I guess when you get old, and the goal is to argue, one can choose to pretend to lack reading comprehension skills. A virtue for Trolls, who like to ask questions to entrap the unwary. To be accurate though...

Re: okotoks flight school

Tail Wheel airplanes? I googled it. They are a real thing...who knew? Apparently the collective wisdom of the people that wrote the manual does not compare to the knowledge of the illuminati. The history of tail wheel landings goes back to the age of dinosaurs when it was observed that the dinosaurs...

Looks like a great operation.
If you hold an “ALTP” as required in their ad, should be a no brainer to fly for them.

Re: okotoks flight school

It would be nice if TC would publish something like that for fixed wing. Particularly with a table as shown there..
The whole engine start to stop would end.

But...where exactly does it prohibit air time +.2?

Re: okotoks flight school

No. It should be chalk to chalk. Not engine start to engine stop. As to charging. That is not the issue here. It is about logging time that is not flight time at all. Charging before the plane moves and after ithas stopped. Be honest avitard. That should be included in the rate charged. You are not ...

Re: okotoks flight sc

No the definition has not changed as per the CARs. What has changed is FTUs using Hobbs time as flight time. Based on oil pressure,that means from engine start to engine stop. And, what is really at issue,is TC approving the practice. Instructors dont want students listening to AWOS or ATIS before s...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Gosh...seems to me , if wind is an issue, you could take them off right after the pax are on board while they are getting seated . It is not a common problem.
I even seem to recall some crews doing this.

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Free turbines spin the prop the wrong way all the time on windy day..... There is no lubrication going on at that point. As someone else mentioned it is not a good thing. When you typically start a free turbine, you will almost immediately get oil pressure...before introducing fuel and starting...i...

Re: Jump Pilot or Aerial Photo Pilot?

Ask the photo ops folks to give you a guarantee in writing of 400 hrs for the season. Or pay you the difference if you do not fly 400. If they won’t do that it tells you a lot about their confidence. And I am pretty certain they wont. You took a job. Keep your word . This is why companies have bonds...
