Re: Will we ever stop shooting ourselves in the foot?

Would think if companies were smart they would start taking on newer pilots and training them to exactly what they want them to be. Cadet programs like that are norm over in Europe. Norm in Europe is also to pay from your own pocket your Airbus or Boeing type rating (For big players like Easy Jet o...

So... it really wasn’t fuel tanks full of air that caused two PT6s to fail simultaneously?
No, second hand version I have is two condition levels pulled instead of props by the f/o.

Minimum wage jobs were never meant to be careers. Somehow people think that absolutely everyone deserves a house. You want a house? Get an education and a higher paying job.
I agree with you but I think it’s more about affording to simply put a roof on top of your head.

Re: First RCAF C-295 makes Maiden Flight

Q-400 wasn't designed to drop things or to spend prolonged periods at 1000 AGL (exposure to low level turbulence results in accelerated airframe fatigue). Both key aspects of SAR. I beg to differ :mrgreen: https://www.airliners.net/photo/France-Securite-Civile/Bombardier-DHC-8-402-Q400-MR/2163819
