Re: Embry Riddle - April 4,2018

the photo is frightening. the portions right and left of the bolt holes look like they have been cracked and working for a while, the portion inboard of the bolt holes looks like a fresh break. the pic seems to indicate that it broke at the last bolt in the fitting, on the outboard side. I will be l...

Re: Gear-Up: Engine shutdown?

if the prop hits the ground , running or not, it needs an engine inspection, so shutting down and feathering is not enough, the prop has to be rotated to not hit the ground, and that only works on 2 blades....

Re: Bombardier considers move away from Downsview

It would be a very sweet deal if somehow they allowed GA to use Downsview. I think the way the approaches would have to come in under the pearson approaches makes it not much fun for ATC. Maybe some of our ATC friends will comment. Even Brampton has a lot of anxiety around it wrt missed approaches. ...

Re: Realistic expectations: age 42 with past lasik surgery?

automation will not happen quickly enough to keep you out of the cockpit, there is a rather large fleet to "wear out" before all the new fangled stuff is in every plane! they are pushing brand new triple 7's out the door, and they still need 2 folks up front to fly them. There are tons of 30 year ol...

Re: Goderich - 1 fatality, 1 missing

The problem is that if there is an airframe failure or similar there is usually proof, If its pilot error, or similar , with no survivors, what is the basis for proof? It’s not that i disagree with you , but the TSB is cautious with stating things it cannot prove. So that leaves” the aircraft depart...

Re: Goderich - 1 fatality, 1 missing

I think you might find that if there was an airframe failure, etc, that the TSB would be sharing. A single discrete accident , where in all likelyhood it was the dreaded "pilot error, or decision making" as a cause. there is not a lot to be gained by sharing it , wrt public safety.
