C-gfxk (okotoks flight school) off airport

Post by Alav » Thu Aug 08, 2019 1:55 pm

A resident of the Air Ranch area says the aircraft collided with a fence during the emergency landing, and is now sitting in a farmer's field at the North end of the runway.

The two occupants exited the plane unharmed.
One report says landing issue one says takeoff.

Fresh paint in that girl, probably a month out of the paint booth?

Well said. I've been involved with this development for many years, although I don't live there. Landed there many times. Sh*t happens, looks like they set it down in a safe spot. Wait till the developer to the north plants houses and you will hear the whining even more. Not sure how they approve development so close to take off or departure paths, but I've always got a bag of popcorn to hear other views.

Plane is privately registered since February. How come the flight school is mentioned in the title of the thread? Was the plane owner getting instruction?

Because the flight school says it's the owner?

To be used in flight training a flight school aircraft absolutely must be registered as commercial.

It may have been re-registered recently, and be operating on its interim C of R until the data is changed in the TC database and a new C of R issued.

Poor fence. What did it ever do to you pilots that made you want to harm it?

In the old days we called them NIMBYs, which she clearly is. Unfortunately she also seems to have failed English classes.

BTW, the whole SJW thing is way overblown and usually wrong - as it is here.

Nimbys kill me, they move into phase 1 in a new development then complain about the noise from the construction of phase 2, funny how they never complained about the noise from phase 1. Then they complain about the airport and race track that have been there for 75 years.

Someone needs to buy me a T-28. I'll go do a touch and go every chance I get.

Place should be a ghost town soon enough.

A NIMBY is someone who gets a good deal on a piece of property and then complains about the reason they got a good deal.

She must be using an alias and wearing a wig.

Clearly, her name is Karen.... and she wants to speak to the Operations Manager.

C-GFXK, a Piper PA-28-140 aircraft operated by the Calgary-Okotoks Flying School, was
conducting a training flight from Calgary/Okotoks Air Park (CFX2), AB to CFX2 with one instructor
pilot and one student pilot onboard. After take-off from Runway 34, at approximately 150 feet AGL,
the aircraft experienced a substantive loss of engine (AVCO LYCOMING, O-320-E3D)
performance. The instructor pilot took control of the aircraft and elected to perform a forced landing
straight ahead into an agriculture field. There were no injuries reported to either pilot.

That's not the story I heard. IF they really made it to 150' agl they would have had a hard time putting it through that fence. Wouldn't be the first time someone made up a BS story about going through that fence though.

Wouldn't be the first time a CADOR was written with information that wasn't factually accurate, either.

And as the owner of the flight school, why have you not corrected the CADOR?
