Re: Seaplane regulation changes proposed

Hopefully Mustang will step up and design a PFD specifically for floatplanes. There could have been five men survive back in 2005.

Re: Beaver down off Saturna island (Updates)

Cat, do TC requirements for a seaplane endorsement really equip a pilot to fly pax here on the coast ? Shouldn't they? Of course, I'm looking at this from a completely different perspective ;) FlyGuy, in one of the accidents reviewed, the a/c sank within minutes although both floats remained attache...

My teen made me take him to the Blockbuster midnight release.
There were more people there than I even knew lived in YBL.

What is cooler to me though, is that this is the same teen who has been bestowed the honour of reading In Flander's Field at his high school's Remembrance Day assembly.
