The quality sucks but this was on the first revenue flight of our new toy
I knew that was the PC strip. Who's got the caravan out of Simpson? ...or is that someone out of Ft. Nelson? Looks like WA colours. Confirm? Checked the site but not listed among the fleet.

If it is WA I'm surpirsed to see the pod. No float work for it :cry:. I guess you'd never get out of the Honey Moon Lakes anyway.

Lol,

Thanks... I think! Can't break out ALL the pics at once... need to string you along slowly! That's actually at the Ross River/Big Timber River area along the North Canol Rd.

See what else I can dig up.

I'm not up to snuff on my bush planes, but what kind of plane is off the right wing of the beaver in that picture? Norseman?

Took this a couple of days ago in Corfu Greece, it is equipped with GPWS.

The world is going nuts when you have to put GPWS in a day VFR machine, but the voice prompt makes you think you are flying an Airbus on landing.

It would be handy on glassy water though because the voice prompt is accurate down to ten feet....and JC would love it in a whiteout.

Wouldn't the prudent owner/operator use every tool economically available to him/her to enhance situational awareness?

True, when over water it sure is JC.

What I found so weird was hearing the voice prompt in the headsets just exactly like I was sitting in a Boeing or an Airbus and I was in a T.O on floats...weird...

I wonder if the manufacturers of the GPWS had any input in the decision to make GPWS mandatory in VFR day only float planes in Europe?

There is the woody factor though for some pilots I bet hearing all that high tech stuff just like the big jets.....

Desksgo, if a pilot is to fuc.in stupid to be able to figure out how high they are flying day VFR paying about a quarter of a million dollars for GPWS is not the answer.....
