The thing is. When they pulled it out of the water. The word Dodge was visible on the top.
I wonder if the Coroner will drop dead from arsenic poisoning as LA Coroner technician, Michael Cormier, did the day his office released the Breitbart autopsy report.
You cannot be an air carrier operating over water, at night, or beyond a 50 nm raduis in a single engine airplane as an air carrier under FAA Part 121 certification. (or part 122, it's been a long-long time for me)
The article has an incident wrong: Loretta Fuddy did not die during the crash — she died afterwards, floating on the ocean wearing a life jacket.
“The thing is. When they pulled it out of the water. The word Dodge was visible on the top.”
Careful, I resemble that remark, being a multiple Dodge owner. I still love that 318 V8 which just kept on running, running, running....
This regulation applies to private and noncommon carriage when such operations are conducted in airplanes having 20 or more seats (excluding crewmembers) or having a payload capacity of 6,000 pounds or more. There must also be operations specifications issued to the operator which include the following information: Kinds of operations authorized Types of aircraft and registration numbers of the airplanes authorized for use Approval of the provisions of the operators manual relating to airplane inspections, together with the necessary conditions and limitations Registration numbers of the airplanes that are to be inspected under an approved airplane inspection program (AAIP) under §125.247 Procedures for the control of weight and balance of airplanes Any other item that the administrator determines is necessary Just as in part 121, subpart (E) identifies special airworthiness requirements dealing mostly with the mechanical devices of the aircraft.
14 CFR Part 135 Operating Requirements: Commuter and On Demand Operations and Rules Governing Persons on Board Such Aircraft As the title of this section states, this regulation is applicable to short distance commercial aircraft operations or commuters and nonscheduled carriers that operate on demand. These aircraft are frequently referred to as air taxi or air charter aircraft. Preceding the regulation are several SFARs.
One of these, SFAR 36, is of interest to the technician because, although it is linked here directly to part 135, it is also linked in the text to parts 121 and 145. The significance of SFAR 36 is that it allows for a company with sufficient engineering and certification personnel to perform major repairs on products it is authorized to work on, without having the technical data approved by the FAA Administrator.
The question to ask is "What FAR are local government flight operations required to be certificated under?
Well now, ain't that just too convenient?
A very critical point.
“And correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a Caravan a single(centerline) line of thrust twin engine airplane?”
I’ll correct you1 The Caravan is a single engine high-wing turboprop. You are thinking of the Cessna Skymaster which was a CLT Twin.
“Airplanes Having a Seating Capacity of 20 or More Passengers “
The 208 is an 9 passenger aircraft with 1 pilot.
This administration makes the Clinton's look like Saints.
Interesting you bring Barry Seal up. I wonder if his family ever settled their case with the cia
Up to 14 with waivers.
(Over 6,000 lbs.)
“(or) having a payload capacity of 6,000 pounds or more.”
It’s only got a 2,800 lb payload. Full seats would mean about enough fuel to fly a touch-n-go. Fuel = 6lbs a gallon. Each person means 30 gallons less fuel.
