Re: Do you really trust your POH performance numbers

I recently tested myself in a 172 vs book numbers. I was considering going into a fairly short private strip with an obstacle at 1 end on a hot/humid day. I did much better than they experienced in that video with only about 10-15% over book numbers, but the margin was too slim for my comfort and op...

Re: Helicopter down north east of Orillia

Yes - thank you for giving back to aviation! I joined CASARA right after I had a forced landing. You never know it could be me they are looking for next.

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

I think the settings are dependent on the version of Android your device runs. No "silent" on my wife's phone but I could turn them off completely.

My Android is an older version that fortunately does not support these alerts :) My wife's phone had a setting which was hard to find that allowed me to turn off all of these pushed alerts. I wouldn't mind keeping an eye open for an alert I received if it were to be in a non-obnoxious format. I don'...

Re: Lawyer or no lawyer?

The problem with airplanes is you have to search in every province to be absolutely sure there is no lean against it. Generally search the one it is registered in and you should be OK. Maybe if it was recently moved from another province check there. I recall it cost me $20 to do online in Ontario.

Re: COPA for Kids pilots now require police check

I have a current VSC and did not fly and C4K events this year just on the principal of this entire thing. If pilots have to do it, then so should everyone involved. Another issue I have with C4K - read the waiver very closely. Everyone is absolved of liability expect the people doing the flying. If ...

Re: Careful getting fuel in Thunder Bay

I've heard/read that before. Apparently you can park on apron 2 for $20/day. I believe there is also an Esso somewhere on site you can call over for fuel too. Worth calling ahead in the North to check these things out. Copa - Places to fly is another good resource but often dated info.

Re: Maximum important headset advice!

Don't buy a Lightspeed, mine is due for another repair. I spoke with them and Sun n Fun, all they wanted to do was sell me a new one with a lousy trade-in value. Poor quality, poor fitment and poor customer service. I find they rely too much on a higher clamping force for noise reduction. This gives...

Re: Vancouver vs Stratford/Cornwall

I'll also vouch for Andy @ Stratford. Cost of living will be much cheaper in Ontario than BC. CYSA is uncontrolled and not an overly busy airport. You waste very little time on the ground, practice area is 5 minutes to the north. Good availability of aircraft and reasonable rates.

Re: Missing helicopter between Sudbury and Kapuskasing

Not that it helps this at all, but I don't fly anywhere without GPS tracking. A SPOT tracker is a cheap an effective solution. Push the SOS button before hitting the trees, and the hercs are coming for you. They cost less than $200, certantly less than a tank of gas. For those who put all their fai...
