See it on top there? Not a GNS480! Yet in the biggest A/C in the world!
But who wouldn't fly it in a heart beat!?!?!?! I love Russian planes!

Indeed costermonger, what is with the curtains? Now all they need to be real Russians is the fans in the cockpit, maybe an antiquated GPS on the glare shield and a hat like this!...

You know what makes this easier...

Aircraft - "ABC 123 is requesting the OPTION for the contact."

Controller - "ABC 123, the option for the contact is approved."

Use it if you can, if not, just takes perhaps an extra couple of minutes for the approach.

definately not right.
numbers are right for a mojave, maybe someone made a mistake on that site.
don't have the POH with me, but those numbers could be right at say... 20,000' with the power bumped up a bit.
But then again, how many operators run a Chieftain at 20,000'?!?!?!

445 is out of calgary and then edmonton usually right?
and it's more often the fokker i think, although both aircraft do the route.
so i would assume it was the f-28.
