Re: Offering Flights with a PPL

Okay, but like what if I charge a couple hundred bucks for a sweet coffee mug or something and as thanks I throw in a free flight to wherever you want to go? You can try, still would be fined. It’s going to be interesting as those “ride sharing” companies try and break into aviation. There are a lo...

It may seem amusing, but it's our insurance premiums which will increase to pay for that....
All types of sketchy with this one. N registered. Sitting there since October allegedly. Registered to some flying law "firm" in the u.s.

Re: Offering Flights with a PPL

Incidental to the flight is a key piece. The other thing is that you CAN receive reimbursement for split costs but you CANNOT ask for reimbursement.

That attached case above is a pretty good read, the guy obviously was selling rides.

Re: CATSA Aircrew Protocol

Just remember, it's not your right to travel through an airport. I have never had a problem, anywhere. Sure, they ask questions and rifle through your bag but if you just let them do it without complaining you'll be fine. It's not a systemic problem, how many aircrew go through security a day withou...

Re: Ame interim license?

Nope, you are allowed to write the exams early but you won't get a license until everything is completed. The interim license is the paper you get before the card shows up in the mail.

Re: Which company is being chartered for the Corona Virus Flights?

[ This is very specialised flying. :lol: "specialised" gimme a break, it's a passenger charter, there are several canadian companies capable of performing the task, maybe just not available or for the right price.

Re: Instances of reversed controls

Speaking of stalls... Exceeding VNE in a helicopter will produce unfavourable results due to retreating blade stall. During the stall, the aircraft will go out of control, pitching up and rolling. Trying to push forward will only make it worse. I only know one person who experienced it and lived to ...

Re: Instances of reversed controls

Check your brakes individually after service, saw one with Hydraulic lines reversed. Pilots never noticed as they mostly double braked. Could have caused a ground accident though.

Re: Flying from the right seat

The flight manual is going to tell you which side you need to fly from for single pilot operations.

It all has to do with controls and location of instruments.
Just remember, most helicopters are right seat captain.

We know the company was VFR only. Where does it say the Helo no longer had a functioning IFR platform and that the pilot was unable to fly IFR ? From my experience, VFR operators won't waste a single penny on anything they don't need. This includes equipment and training. I'm not even sure if they ...

You don’t fly with an iPad? You’re crazy. iPad shows you where you are on a map presentation. Far more useful than those VOR/DME/ADF that I haven’t used since 1987. I’d be surprised if the aircraft and on-board equipment was any factor at all in this accident. The S76B has a redundant autopilot sys...

We all have our theories, I'm leaning towards the most obvious cause. Sure, some catastrophic failure of some critical component could have happened just as he was entering the hills after fog ducking around in marginal weather but VFR into IMC is my bet. There is nothing left of that helicopter, th...

Completely useless, probably had a negative effect of making him overconfident in crap weather. Many ipad drivers here have said they'd use it as an alternate att/hsi in IMC, looks like that theory is trash.
