Co jo Not to keep jumping on you man, but your not picking up what I'm putting down. The 748 meets 705 requirements. Every take must prove balanced/unbalanced field performance which means ASD is also proven. Thats not just something I heard from a guy that knows a Hawker mechanic, its a fact. :roll:

1. The tyres (British spelling...it is British, afterall) "pop" because there is little or no weight on the tyres when brakes are applied. Very rare if the brakes are used as they are intended to be used, regardless of weight...I've been to Pang in a Hawker...many times..no flats! I've only had one...

Co-joe The 748 meets balanced/unbalanced field performance as well as single engine go around performance. It's a 705 aircraft, no exemptions. The t/o weight is limited by field and WAT performance calculation. These calculations are suppose to ensure a reject prior to V1 will allow the aircraft to ...

I would have to say that prop was spinning when that happened. It's looking pretty curled up. Yea, all 4 blades are bent. Kinda odd there's so little damage to the Airbus, though. I'm thinkin he performed the overrun drill. The prop would remain in fine pitch to prevent additional and unwanted thru...

The 748 does meet balanced/unbalanced field length requirements (the latter taking advantage of available stopway and clearway).

My DC's had an on going issue were the mic would freeze up and become useless. It took a couple attempts, but they are finally fixed. The last fix was no charge and my warranty had been expired for over a year.

The 748's do the YSR/YRB route now.

What are living costs like in whitehorse? rent etc etc?

Costs are pretty reasonable considering Whitehorse is north of 60. Lots of Big Box stores. A typical two bedroom basement sweet runs you about $700 last I heard. Gas is 99.9/L.

Try Alkan Air. They are looking for guys according to the job postings. I think they want 1000 hours. It seems to be a desirable place to be.

I would say, any time an engine FAILS to produce the power demanded of it having an adverse effect on your flight, it constitutes an engine failure.
