Subject: Netletter nr 25 - Between Ourselves . Welcome to Saville Hambleton at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Saville is a Director, Air Canada Pionairs - Vancouver Island. . Hello Ben Vezina (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) As of today, some of us have not received the AGM Pionairs package - lets hope that all the accommodations are not snapped up before we have a chance to respond. If you have not received your package by the time you read this, then send Ben a E-Mail. Terry and I want to point out to our friends of Between Ourselves NetLetter to the Pionair executive how helpful a NetLetter such as ours would be of benefit to all Pionairs as a fast form of communication, especially with the May 96 Pionair AGM coming up in Ottawa. -=o0o=- . Anyone have any aviation type anecdotes to tell ? Here's one - Submitted by: Vesta From a conversation between Malcolm Coutts and Peter Cranston and extracted from a conference on NaNet. Mac: You asked about anecdotes from our former days in aviation. I was talking with a friend today about first solos of training pilots, and how they were always routine. Peter: Except for one I remember, when I was learning to fly at a small airport in 1946. One training school used Piper Cubs, which you may recall were two-place, tailwheel-type machines with seats one behind the other. For balance reasons, when flown solo the pilot had to be in the rear seat, so the instructor always sat in front. One summer evening a young girl was sent on her first solo. On final approach she came in too steep, banged the wheels on the grass runway and bounced high. She did the right thing, put on the power and went around for another try. This time, too low. Bounced again, went around again. I forget how many tries it took before she finally got it down. By this time everyone was out watching. We all converged on her as she climbed out. The instructor asked her what happened. Why couldn't you get the attitude right? he demanded, you had no trouble before. Well, she said, you told me to use reference marks, remember? Like lining up the top of the windshield with the horizon? I didn't realize it till you were gone, but for the glide angle, I was using your ears. That's Vesta's grin for the day. ***Flying is the 2nd greatest thrill. Landing is the 1st!*** -=o0o=- . Found on the Internet - Business Express had declared bankrupcy. As an inducement to avoid driving to Atlanta for the Olympic Games, Delta offering bargain fares to Atlanta. The landing gear of a Continental Airlines DC9 collapsed or may have failed to deploy as the jet landed at HOU on Feb 19, no inuries reported. A Northwest Airlines flight mad an emergency landing at Detroit after a greasy hamburger, left in a galley oven started smouldering. Alitalia has been hit by wildcat strikes at Rome. Bombardier is planning to produce a 78 seater Dash8-400. McDonnell Douglas talking about a stretched MD11 trijet for 375 pax and 8,300 nm range. -=o0o=- . That's it for this time, please we need your input, comments and email addresses of any others who may be interested. -!- Landing on an Island in the Pacific. _____(~)_____ ! ! !
