are you telling me im wrong ?
You were wrong.
 




he should have know better to try getting high or risking a crash and lifes
He was trying to get higher. He couldn't because the plane was too heavy.


i dont think they were overweight
the pilot was flying way to low and didnt even try to go up
then he caught a empty air pocket while flying near the tree tops
The plane was too heavy.
The pilot was trying to gain altitude.
There is no such thing as an "empty air pocket"


but the main mistake the pilot did was not going up
He could not "go up" because the plane was too heavy.



i dont believe he was to heavy to fly higher
The plane was too heavy



conclusion : the weight was not an issue here
The plane was too heavy

With that many electronics, somehow I'm not surprised. Even the yoke had an ipad.

Ok Lets go step by step
Small planes like that CANNOT carry more then 800 pounds (i checked that fact)
including passenger and equipment/materials etc

but i agree with you that in certain area where the density and the altitude is high
the limits or weight should be lowered to at least 600 pounds

so yes he was overweight for that particular area he was in
but he was under the 800 pounds limits around 700

So in other words....
The plane was overweight.
The pilot was trying to gain altitude but could not because he was overweight.
There was no downdraft.
There was no airpocket.

I'm glad you finally understand what happened but it was explained several times.

We use them too on our older B737's for checklists, charts and procedures.

Our newer airplanes have Electronic Flightbag for that purpose.

We were both right in a way

has for the air pocket


After taking off we hit an air pocket that made us rapidly loose altitude, pushing us down into the trees.


I didnt say anything about that .. but one of the passenger did

he also say they had problem to gain altitude
when they know never to surcharge in weight or risk a crash
the limits of 800 pounds was respected because it is a strick regulation
that all pilots should know and respect to the letter

Here is what you said:

800 pounds is not a regulation. Maximum takeoff weight depends on density altitude. The higher the density altitude the lower the maximum takeoff weight. The plane was overweight. The pilot should have been aware of it.
 


We were both right in a way

No. You were wrong.

There's no such thing as an air pocket.

Downdrafts, windshear, mountain rotors, microbursts yes, airpockets no.

Maybe i was a bit wrong at the start for some detail
curse me now if i say otherwise .. i have no ego to build
i just want to know what really happen . and who was at fault
you know me .. i want only the truth


First why do you think he was overweight ?
there is no account that he was from the op external content
he did say they have hit a air pocket making them go crash in the trees

if im wrong on the weight
then you are also wrong on the air pocket

Phage the "fight" is over .. its a draw
or you have some counter new evidences or the official incident report investigation

The external content say it was an air pocket
my first language is Canadian French not english
the word "air pocket" is okay for me .. i have heard it before

how many synonyme we have for that term ?
probably a lot

To the people that keep saying there is no such thing as an "Air Poicket", there is. It is a commonly accepted term to describe several different weather phenomena...

en.wikipedia.org...
www.thefreedictionary.com...

Air Pocket is an accepted aviation term, so quit saying they are made up or don't exist...

As an airline captain i'm telling you it wasn't, it's misleading and wrong.

Well it's not ok for me, because in this case they were too heavy to fly.

Captain Sir !
Always wanted to be a pilot .. you have a great job .. the best

was my first dream when i was young and still is

What is the correct term then for "air pocket" ? .. "air bubble" ?

im not really fussy with words .. we french canadian always mix anyword we can

the external content was maybe written by one to say "air pocket"




the word "air pocket" is okay for me


Well it's not ok for me, because in this case they were too heavy to fly.


Then you must know what are the limit weight for a small airplane like that ? 800 pounds ?
including the passengers and materials
