  2. What's an "iPod"?
  3. Passing the FAF and the GP fails....go-around and set up for the LOC approach.
  4. I wondered about the duct tape as well but regardless of that, a passenger cannot be physically restrained TO a seat. They can be restrained IN a seat. Perhaps US airline policy is different from Canadian airline policy....

  6. We're discovering this in YVR as well. "Descend via the STAR; maintain XXXXX ft" defeats the purpose of the STAR. Inbound to PDX, we usually get "descend via the KRATR ARR". That's it and that's all we need. Not sure who at Nav Canada came up with these "less than efficient" procedures.
  7. At least you get cleared for the Localizer approach. Last year in YVR, ATIS says "IFR approach in use ILS 08L glideslope inop" Ahh....isn't that a localizer approach then? I did ask ATC about the wording but can't remember their response.

  11. Airlines have a dress code. All employees know this. Follow the policy or buy a ticket if you want to "dress down".
  12. I'm thinking the same thing, Kip. No mention of a post-crash fire so fuel starvation likely. According to this photo, Manitouwadge is pretty much on a continued straight track from Ann Arbor to Harbor Springs. Lake Superior doesn't give up her secrets...
  13. I was at the CAE YYZ facility in January. In the lounge was a coffee-table book on the history of CAE. Didn't get a chance to read the whole book but what I could proved very interesting.
  14. Fun airplane to fly the Buck-72. For the record, the C150 was not a factory taildragger. There was/is a conversion called the "Texas Taildragger" available.
  15. Humans are explorers 'Nuff said....
