Re: Flying long distances in T effect ( Ground effect. ).

To get back on track here. Do you recall what kind of fuel savings you got by flying in ground effect? I’ve done plenty of flying in ground effect but it was more to do with being young and dumb or impressing girls than saving fuel.

Re: Netjets getting even better.

Just out of pure curiosity, what would someone working at a comparable Canadian company expect to make. I have no idea what you guys in the corporate world get paid.

Since you admitted in the icing topic that you almost crashed taking off with in a DC3 covered in frost, and since you are now advocating flying under a thunderstorm 50 ft AGL, I'd say luck was a pretty big factor yeah... If you read my comments on the DC3 incident I am sure I said it was a very li...

Re: Old versions of the Canadian Flight Supplement

There was a thread on here several years ago where someone posted a bunch of old approach plates from the 50’s (if I remember correctly). I’m sure with some digging you could find it. There was one of the airport diagram for YQX which had a runway that was 600’ wide at the time.

Re: Tankering Fuel

Yes. Where I work the flight planning system figures out the cheapest way to do it using the price at the departure airport and arrival airport. We quite regularly tanker 2000kgs+ into places with expensive fuel.

Re: Westwind

Boeing (and their lawyers) have certified that the 737 NG is permitted to safely take off with frost contaminated wings...after a few conditions are met of course. This goes goes directly against the "any ice is too much" theory. Hmmm :smt102 http://tpaile.weebly.com/uploads/6/3/1/2/63121797/107583...

Re: Westwind

Why does it matter how much experience I have in these scenario's and if I have flown a DC3 or not? It doesn't matter. I'm using the results of the TSB survey that said that 74% of pilots have seen airplanes take off with contamination. What would you conclude from that? That the current "any ice i...

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

exactly, circling is just like a circuit, really. You must have contact with the ground to circle, you're basically in the circuit. You shouldn't drop flaps until you're about to turn base at least, gear on final. Note: In general, I'm on an airliner, but same principal applies. As with training me...

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

I am curious on how they teach a RNAV approach especially LNAV. Off course with LPV/WAAS or ILS, you have the glide slope and an auto-pilot, so no worry there. See my attached file for RNAV RWY 10 for example. I heard instructors there wanted students to descent from whatever the top of descent (TO...

Re: Best place for Multi/IFR that is NOT Cornwall??

Cornwall teaches to the test, you will learn how to pass the ride, (with their in house examiner), but not much more. They are a cheap way to get the sticker for your Aviation Document Booklet, but not much else. The quality of your training is going to depend more on the instructor than it will on...

Re: Seeking accomodation for groundschool.

Sunwing provided me a hotel and rental car in YYZ when that was my base. An airline can’t expect you to pack up and move your life across the country with a couple weeks notice. The hotel and car came in handy for apartment hunting in yyz.
