    Magnetic North on the move

    Compass swings are still required on aircraft AFAIK. If it has a MC on board, I would guess it needs swinging.

    Now that’s pretty impressive
  5. Saw an Encore Q400 in a KF hanger yesterday. Also saw a Condor 757 tucked into another hanger. KF certainly has a variety of contracts on the go.

    Cessna 335 crash in Florida

    Somewhat interesting discussion on past military experience but I’m not seeing the connection between that and the 335 crash in Florida. No disrespect intended but perhaps we can get the discussion back on track.

    I was referring to Viking but did look up Longview Aviation. Looks Canadian to me.....unless I’m missing something.

    Only time will tell, rudder. I for one wish Viking all the best for the future. I’m very happy the Dash 8 line is still owned by a Canadian company.

    Crews incorrectly select

    Have pilots truly forgotten how to fly airplanes? Airplanes all fly on the same principles. I’m all for automation and technology but not at the expense of the theory of flight.

    I wonder if the Dash 8 line-up will go back to being “deHavilland” branded.....
