Re: Declared Emergency by Phone

They had to fly on the peanut gyro because of a low battery voltage? That doesn't sound right to me. No, they flew VMC. Luckily, but the ramifications of ending up in IMC are there. I have experience on both the 4 dual fed bus system as well as the 1 triple fed bus system and losing both gens due t...

Re: Declared Emergency by Phone

I was told of a scary scenario with a Beech 200 and a new G1000 installation. There's a prop RPM red arc and it's something weird like 1750-1800 RPM, if you accidentally set the props there it sets up a harmonic that causes the screens all to shut down. Not sure the 300 has such a limitation, are th...

Judgement call. It was a stressful day, and I believe what I saw was a panic attack, but I left it up to him to deal with. If it was a CVA, or an MI, or a loss of consciousness, I'd have had not choice but to report it. He's gone on to have a very successful career so I can only assume he's figured ...

Re: Advise ATC if a pilot is sick

I had this happen to me, and I just covered for the guy, flew single pilot and didn't tell anybody. Maybe not the smartest thing to do but it's what I would want someone to do for me. He was just violently sick and needed both hands for the barf bag though, if he'd gorked out on me, or had a heart a...

Re: How long for hands on throttle after takeoff

Keeping one hand on the thrust levers and one on the control column below 10 000' seems to be expected of the PF unless actively using that hand to manipulate the MCP here. I do remember having a throttle roll back on me on the 1900, and the prop sync masked it quite well. The first indication I had...

If they've got time on the CRJ and if Sunwing has a matrix that gives credit for that time towards upgrade, then it could absolutely be worth it.

Re: Cold Weather Corrected Missed Approach Altitude

To me, the reason to correct the MAP alt is for comm failure. In any radar controlled airspace you're never going to get the publish missed. If you call in the missed, they will give you an altitude, but if your radios shit the bed at that precise instant, you need to CYA, (and the A's of the people...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

I would think that a 130 Kt RTO in a 763 would put you at risk for melting tire fuse plugs, wouldn't it? Did they have to wait for cool down before taxiing back to the gate? Did they get local ARFF to come put the IR camera on their brakes before taxxing? Just curious.
