Re: Ethiopian Airlines: 'No survivors' on crashed Boeing 737 max

Looks like one of the reasons the MAX is still not flying. https://www.flightglobal.com/safety/simulator-tests-demonstrate-737-max-manual-trim-difficulties/137651.article Investigators tested various out-of-trim scenarios in July 2019 using CAE-made 737 Max level D flight simulators in Addis Ababa. ...

Re: In ‘stunning’ reversal, Pickering is asking for airport to be expedited

A high speed rail link could get passengers from Toronto to CYHM in 25 minutes. If the present management of Hamilton airport continues there will never be enough traffic to finance a high speed rail. Lack of infrastructure and no commitment to build it has hampered passenger traffic in and out of ...

Re: 172 down in Victoria BC

What isn't known is if that was the last of a load or if they had more on board - which could degrade climb performance significantly.

Re: Westjet CYHZ

It is very hard to show a return on investment upgrading runways and approaches. So I do not think Halifax will consider an ILS on 5 or 32 when a LPV approach gets you down to 200-250 ft decision altitude right now. Conversely building stores and restaurants in terminals generates revenue. That is t...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

The LDA for runway 14 at YHZ is 7700 ft, but what about the fact that the touchdown point for an ILS is not at the threshold? On a light twin you can chop and drop once you're visual (within reason), but what about the big guys? With a stabilized approach following the glidepath right to the ground...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Does anyone know if this aircraft had LPV capabilities? I'm assuming that the reason why they took 14 at all was that they didn't, but maybe they thought that 200 ft ceiling made it not even worth the effort of trying the RNAV 05.... Rwy 5-32 was NOTAM closed. Westjet does not do LPV approaches wit...

Re: Fokker 100 Crash in Almaty, Kazakhstan Dec 26,2019

Ummmm, can you clarify this statement? I am quite sure that knowingly taking off with ANY frost on top of the wing won't satisfy the lega...

What's wrong with that? It's an IFR capable airplane with -let's assume- an instrument rated pilot. Pretty sure this is a daily occurence in Canada, in way worse environments.

WestJet also had a 737 with 97k cycles on it. I'd imagine it's the cycles that get you not the hours. Remember the Hawaiian 737 convertible. It had 89k cycles.
That was a 737-200 and she was scraped when the 737NG's came on line.
