I don't give a damn about the personality issues. These planes are really cool and that's what the show should be about. It's not a soap opera.

They need that to stretch the footage they have. Without it the show would only be half as long. I agree though that for people who know how the airplanes operate a version without the personal drama would be better. Half of it sounds overblown, everything is always super critical, eg Community X waits for their new floorboards, if they do not arrive in time the annual Christmas dance isn't in jeopardy. So we bite our nails when they are delayed because the weather in the NWT is sometimes bad.

Aircraft have much stricter maintence requirements….I’ve seen 50 year old aircraft in better condition than 10 year old cars..The helicopter I fly is almost 30 years old and is in great condition. The vast majority of passenger jets are older than 20 years old…I can tell you don’t fly.

All for the cameras. These people are very tough cookies. I just don't think she would have cried, she more likely would have told him off or popped him. If he were to fail, they need pilots, he absolutely would get another check ride, unless he almost crashed. You make this too dramatic.

I’ve been around horses that only want to behave on the way back to their barn… they’re called “Barn Happy” I’d say the plane with the oil pressure problems is “Hanger Happy” also those are pretty fish tanks 🐠

I'm no pilot by any means. But if my oil pressure jumps to 150-160 and you are having issues when its at 120 while its normally at 80. I'd have turned around and landed. Because something isn't right. No matter if it drops again, something was wrong and probably still is. No point in risking breaking the engine or crashing the plane and killing the people inside it. The decision to go to Yellowknife with the oil reading seems irresponsible to me.

I am a pilot and yea I agree…You can get higher oil pressures in cold weather due to the oil being denser but it usually balances out once the engine is warmed up. Me personally I’m turning around if any thing is out of the norm…My passengers and cargo can wait, I’m coming home at the end of the day

I love it.... "Narrowly avoids EXPLODING" mid air... I fly and this is the dumbest thing I have ever seen in aviation. Ratings, likes comments etc. The lack of professionalism and maintenance, added to the age of the chosen aircraft, suggest you should retire your fleet.

Tips for keeping inside of car windows clear of frost, open one window, a tiny bit, does not have to be visibly open. Turn off the heater fan before turning off the ignition. Set the control to heat before turning on the heater fan. Clear the snow, scrape the ice from windows then turn on the defroster.

Wonder lovers if you die today will you go to heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen, hated, used God's name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God's law, you're guilty, your headed for hell, ignorance will not be an excuse... But wait, God loves you, he made a way out for you, God's son Jesus died paying for your sin. God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16 Love Y'all

I was always ok to -20 after that I just wanted to stay inside. At -40 even with oil heaters my truck wouldn't start the gears wouldn't shift. I don't know how anything here is moving

I'm no expert but if it's flying in environments that cold, does it need the oil coolers? Could put in a bypass system for times like that.

@mechsupernova airplane oil coolers are not like car oil coolers. There is regulation of oil flow into the cooler based on temperature demand. The problem here is actually the reduced flow through the cooler causing the oil in the cooler to congeal and clog it.

@Vance Lacarte talking about an oil cooler not an engine radiator.

You think cold temps negate the need to regulate an engines need to operate at a certain temp? It is the reason your car engine gets to give you heat. On a aircraft, during slow flight procedures you can easily overheat, During cold you can damage your engine by running too cold.

OMG. Old school work ethics. Start at the bottom, EARN your way up. Go into a position with a rock solid knowledge base of your company. What a concept. Such a refreshing change from the man child with his shiny degree in an hypothetical academic industry model who expects to be in upper management. Are you hiring?

@Larry Higginson When starting from the bottom in a company like this you are learning the nuts and bolts of how the company is made up. Your learning what admin/paperwork work is required for that company and what role each person plays within the businesss, which after all is how the boss as designed it. You are also making contacts within the business who you know to ask if you have a problem. In this particular business their is the added problem of enviroment. If your ambition is to become a pilot with Buffalo and you have just arrived from sunny climbs who is to say you can sustain the temperatures they have to endure. They may have to refuel or de ice the aircraft and knowing how all this machinery works where it is and how to replensh it. Maybe they may have to use the forklift. But the biggest advantage with starting as a rampy is how these old aircraft operate how they should be correctly loaded etc. The chance to see the aircraft stripped down and the chance to quiz the mechanics how the systems work, potential problems and any fixes for small problems. But as they say in the programme they want to see who as the enthusasim and resilience to work in what can be an unusually harsh part of the world. At the end of the day how many potential pilots could manage it and to me this weeds out the people who have not got the deep down desire to do what it takes to obtain there goals in life no matter what. If youve come from bottom and reached the top nobody can say you do not know what its like to do my job. If I wanted to work there I would have jumped at the chance to do a rampys job which would give me all the tools to become a more competent pilot.
