Re: Weird situation, looking for help....

It may by TC's problem in that they are responsible for the proper issuance of a licence based on the reported hours the applicant reports. Certainly it is going through the extra works to validate the hours, but there are still some ways to try and figure this one out. First off the Daily flight sh...

Re: 2 Air Transat pilots charged with being impaired

Re: DUI Conviction and license suspension.

Just to clarify a bit further if, at the time of the impaired driving violation, a Canadian police officer is aware of the fact that you have a pilot licence, he may apply, at the discretion of the court, for a suspension order that apply to the pilot licence as well. This is done by a police reques...

Re: Ottawa RIver Departure under the Bridge

It is interesting to see the amount of support for this pilot taking off and being airborne, way before he got the bridge. Is the issue really the ability to actually take off and land or whether the take off and landing was legal? I think not. The issue is whether or not it is appropriate to fly un...

Re: Private airstrip in a muncipality that prohibits it

If you're up for a big read, there is a supreme court deicision that applies to a similar case:

(Johannesson v. Municipality of West St. Paul, Manitoba)

It may be usefull in your case.

Re: Where to land a floatplane in Winnipeg or Southport ?

602.13 applies.

Anything inside the Perimeter is within the city of Winnipeg.

Therefore the only legal location is an airport, heliport or military aerodrome.

There was an aerial applicator, years ago, who requested an exemption, which as I recalled was denied by TC.
