First off whoever posted that video used a picture of the Dutch Cat and that was sure not the way I taught them to start a PBY.

If one were to follow that starting procedure and actually got it going before it caught fire from over priming they would have been lucky.

The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no


After over a half a century of flying no one ever died because of my decision not to fly.

If a pilot walked into a forest and had to make a decision, and no one from AVCANADA was there. Would the pilot still be wrong?

Do you know how much garbage like this is posted on the net on daily basis around the world? The Feds know about it.

Sure now, why would you want to do that? Most societies despise informants. Where do you live?

Hey Cat,

I'm pretty sure kiloindiapapa was referring to a written comment by 669backstab in the comment section below the video.

AAhhh thanks istp, I missed reading that part, after seeing the video I was not interested in the rest of it.

There are so many inaccuracies in the starting procedures that I felt it was not worth commenting on.

Who advises these people on these issues?

For sure that video has it quite wrong.

In the written comments someone commented that they set the left mixture for the right engine, obviously no one knows what they are talking about because whoever made the video at least moved the correct fuel selector and mixture lever for the right engine.
