Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

The learning point is, how do you react when you discover your error? Do you bypass a diversion airport in the hopes that you can make destination on fumes and not have to admit your error? (Low probability of success, but a desired outcome, common pilot choice) Or do you divert, gas up, confess yo...

Re: Harv's Air

On the IFR side of things I find this is the norm. I’m not saying that their PPL / CPL training is poor, but their IFR program / IFR instructors is something to laugh at.

Re: SIMAir

I'm not sure if this is related or not but Kelly Western was recently purchased from a rather large US company.

Re: Manitoba signs 5-year deal for private air transportation

EIC just bought Kississing's King Airs, but they're mostly ancient, early serial number 100s and the awesome Beech 99. Don't be too discouraged though, they do have some of ex-Keystone's high end modern and well equipped 200s. :roll: You should probably get your facts straight before giving inaccur...

Re: Wings Over Kississing

Wings Over Kississing has been bought. That's not 100 % accurate according to some guys that work there. EIC purchased one hangar and three airplanes. From the guys that still work there, it will be normal operations going forward. This was apparently done in anticipation of the changes coming with...

Re: Lightspeed headset

I've used the Bose, Zulu 2 and Zulu 3, for me I'd recommend the Zulu products. It seems average sized ears are a snug fit inside the Bose. I find the Zulu 2 or 3 fits better and feels more comfortable on my head. Zulu's seem to have a slight advantage on noise reduction over Bose.

Re: Gear-Up: Engine shutdown?

The metro that went off the runway in Thompson a few months ago had one propeller blade sticking through the cabin door. This wasn’t a gear up issue but with more aircraft having composite blades, I’d rather not having one spinning with power as it makes contact with the ground.

Re: Gear-Up: Engine shutdown?

In the aircraft I fly, I don’t think shutting the engines down would make the outcome for the props / engines much better. The power sections and props are toast regardless. I’m more interested in preventing metal from coming into the fuselage and reducing the risk of a fire should something go south.

Wabusk just posted a job ad looking for King Air Captains. Does any one have current information or insight into their operation? The pay for a 6 month contract seems rather enticing.
