Re: 703 Piston Twin T/O Perf requirements

If, for some stupid reason you were to operate a Ho under 704, then you would have to show balanced field calculations, not net takeoff flight path...I think, maybe. ok i have no idea.

Re: Twin engine input

The weird thing that makes the counter rotating engines on a Twin Comanche desirable is that it's 20 kts faster than the normal one. (No idea why) I'd guess it's faster because the engine and thrust forces are balanced with counter-rotating engines, so there's no drag penalty caused by aerodynamic/...

The weird thing that makes the counter rotating engines on a Twin Comanche desirable is that it's 20 kts faster than the normal one. (No idea why) There was a school in YQL that had one years ago.

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

It seems to me that the people upset by Westjets refusal to refund the ticket price should look in the mirror to find the person responsible. All they had to do before purchasing their respective ticket was read the Westjet policy which is clearly laid out on their website. Quite simply only Premiu...

Re: 172 runs out of gas - lands on TN highway

It could have been a faulty fuel indicator Do you really believe a faulty Fuel Indicator is a good excuse for Getting an engine Failure due to Fuel Starvation? Not everybody dips the tanks. Have you even flown a 172? The fuel gauges are all faulty, that's how Cessna made them. If you don't dip your...

Re: Aviation Based Protest in Ottawa this Coming Week

The issue is that this government is on the road to putting the airlines out of business. If the airlines collapse, the airports will go bankrupt, as will all of the vendors who do business there, as will Navcanada, and a whole host of others. It's bigger than the pilots, flight attendants, and AMEs...

I think the 23rd is the first day Parliament sits again, so if you want your voice heard before selfie boy shuts it down again and turns his back, it might be the only chance to stage a meaningful protest.

It's not like that, there is sadness but also lots of kind words, and optimism. For me putting faces and real stories to the job losses helps me remember I'm not alone.

Re: Question for trough (at the GFA)

The key to what happens with a trough are the properties of the air mass it is in. If the airmass is moist and unstable expect convective wx, is the airmass is dry and stable likely nothing will happen. Remember the definition of stability has to do with lapse rate. Think about the relationship betw...

Re: Question about building time for a float/bush career

If you want to fly floats, don't bother with the multi or the ifr rating, spend the money on float time. An idea worth asking about that I don't know the answer to is; would pic on an ultralight on floats be worth anything? If it comes down to insurance, 50 pic on floats should be 50 hours pic on fl...

Re: Cargojet777

CJ will acquire B777 if they feel they have the committed long term cargo volume to fill the planes. However, an additional fleet type comes with significant overhead costs that need to be spread across a meaningful number of hulls. I cannot see this happening on a dry lease basis for a fleet of le...
