CYBL incident on June 17?

A friend was out at the airport and thought they saw the emergency vehicles tending to some parachutists.

I hope everyone is ok! It doesn’t sound so good. Nothing in the news or CADORS, yet.

FAA ATC going private

I just watched Trump announce the "privatization" of the FAA ATC system. It will be handed over to a private, not-for-profit agency in what sounds like a similar fashion to Canada. He specifically announced that Canada did this about 20 years ago, with good results. In typical fashion, he proudly an...

Re: Air Canada Accident in YHZ

I'm of the opinion that TC shouldn't legislate further restrictions on approach bans because of this accident. The way I see it, companies and crew hold a joint responsibility to mitigate risks in operations. When vis is at 50% of the CAP recommended value, there is an increased inherent risk of hav...

It's been 2 years since I was up to speed on YVRs deciding procedures, so please let me know if it's changed.

Re: Entering controlled IFR from uncontrolled airport

It's my understanding that you can depart VFR at any time, regardless of whether you've filed an IFR plan or not. You would just squawk 1200 (assuming that you are not going to climb above 12,501' while maintaining VFR). You then fly as you would under VFR rules, avoiding class B, C or D airspace. N...

Re: Claiming EI While on Training

I could be wrong, but this is my take on the situation. I think you'd be good on parental leave EI only... You're paying Nav Canada to go to school for the duration of your course (you'll be issued a T2202). If you're on parental leave, I think you're allowed to do (almost) anything that you like. I...

Re: First time flyer

Try checking in online less than 24 hours before the flight. If your reservation doesn't include a seat number then you can often choose your seat when checking in. Look for that window seat and enjoy the view :)

Hi zulutime, Welcome to avcanada!!

Re: What's my angle, by schooner 69

Your AOA will decrease for 2 reasons: 1- Less G, as mentionned by Skyhunter, to maintain a constant attitude. 2- TAS will increase as you climb, thus reducing your AOA. (100 KCAS level at 1000' is greater than AOA at 100 KCAS at 20 000') 1) I don't think the diminished G force will affect the AoA. ...
