    Osprey crash in Japan

    Looks like they are willing to accept more risk…the cost of doing business mantra was sort of drummed out of military aviation in the 90’s, but I guess we’re back full circle.

    Seaplane collides with small boat in Vancouver

    It’s interesting but pure rules the seaplane is wrong but this is crazy…I spend a lot of time still to this day delivering boats and congested harbors and sea-lanes are full of people that do not understand or follow COLREGS….summertime in any place may be less then half…I am picking up a 62...

    Anybody ever make money with a lease back??

    No and ended up in five lawsuits when an active FAA employee, probably committed suicide, also killing his five year old daughter in a bad domestic divorce situation…child was kidnapped and was given Reds Apple ale and over 2 times the limit for an Adult. Worst time in my life…all resolved now...

    Foreflight Lightning is Broken - Need Help with Escalation

    Codemonkey was Tyson Wiehs I believe and very much departed even as an advisor to FF post Boeing purchase. Really nice guy who created a forward thinking company and a culture of GA pilots that still seems to exist today. I have met quite a few employees over the years…if pilot support says they...

    Under insured and sweating a little bit..

    Most Aviation policies (unlike other property policies) are 100% earned with a total loss with a payment by your carrier. So if you use your carrier and the policy has the clause you may not get any money back…I would also ask that question and take it into consideration.

    I would notify your carrier then put them on hold until and when the other carrier either accepts or rejects liability and makes a tentative settlement. Lots can go sideways in Aviation insurance as so many things must be right for the Company to accept liability. Things like medicals...

    Any rules against what you put as your flight ID?

    You got on Flat Iron you gave blood…engine failure solo at a hover in a TH-55 was enough that day.
