What Is This Blog About?

I really shouldn't be keeping a blog (perhaps I'll elaborate later on why) but if I'm going to, I should have a focus. This blog isn't so much about me. Heck, my name isn't even on it. But it isn't about you, either, as I don't know who you are.

This blog is about flying airplanes, learning to fly airplanes, advancing an aviation career in Canada, working as a commercial pilot, and commentary on aviation news. If you want the mixture of bad jokes, industry gossip, complaints, and not much of anything that comprises real cockpit conversations, log off the computer and go back to the crewroom.

It is not my intention to embarrass, slander or otherwise harm my employers, coworkers, customers or even my competitors. Therefore I will not identify companies or individuals, nor reveal corporate information, except in the context of public documents. There shall be no whining, no backstabbing, and no pictures of me, in or out of uniform.

I do reserve the right to make bad jokes.

Problems with PT6-45
For about a month I am having maintenance problem with an of PT6-45 on my Shorts SD-330. From time to time when my crew starts right engine , and engine stabilzes on average around 60% Ng, when they start left engine, right engine will drop down to 40% Ng droping total power for 20 % less, even if they try to add full power right engine will not react, the only way to get this engine back to normal is to restart andn start left engine sequence first. When they start left and stabilize, right engine will start normally and stabilize and operate normally. We have been hunting for problem and brainstorming what could couse this problem, we have change FCU, at first it looked that solved problem droping the engine power without control, but 1 week after normal start up right engine, it did it again, this time right engine droped instead 20% to almost to idle to shout down. Another thing that right engine for some reason running hotter then left engine, much hotter then left engine that during the last start sequence when occured last week ITT was been running in red for few secunds before normalizing starting sequence.
I would like to hear any ideas about this problem with PT6-45 or that anybody in the world reported similar problems and how to deal with this problem.
