Morningstar has a two-year bond on the Boeing. I'm not sure about the other types but I'm assuming there's on bond on those as well.

Re: Canada ATPL convert to USA FAA ATP License

Hey there, I am interested in converting my license too, I have both the SAMRA and SARON complete, but not the hours for the license. Would I have to submit my ATPL before I am able to write the conversion exam. I have called multiple people and talked face to face with others, they all tell me to ...

Re: ‘Reckless’ Canadian pilots commit major quarantine breach in Darwin

In Canada flight crew are exempt from the mandatory quarantine. My understanding was that you are exempt while performing the duties which are deemed essential - flying the airplane - but in theory, when you get back from say... the US... you are supposed to in fact quarantine. I could be wrong, I ...

Where is the world do you work that requires you quarantine for 2 weeks after every single flight??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! What has this world come to. In June and July borders between states in Australia were closed (some still are and some just closed again). That's 14 days Quarantine crossing a stat...

Re: Can I log Pilot in Command time?

It can be boiled down to this: If at the end of the day, your signature is NOT going in the logbook, then you are not the PIC. End of story. Do you mean personal logbook or Journey log? This isn't a thing in Canada as far as I can think. Personal (pilot) logbooks are only required to be signed by t...

Re: Canada ATPL convert to USA FAA ATP License

Remember that as part of the conversion you're going to have to complete the ATP-CTP course. This course costs between $4000-$5000. It is a prerequisite for writing the ATP knowledge test. There's unfortunately no way around it.

Re: Can I log Pilot in Command time?

Yep. That's correct. In order to utilize the PICUS program the candidate must have 150 hours of PIC. You may have to bite the bullet and buy the hours. At least it's only 7. I know guys who've had to buy a lot more than that.

Best of luck.

Which, if you're hurting for PIC time for your ATPL, could help you. But you'll have to look into whether your company has...

Re: RVOP/LVOP Question, Please help.

So we know this: RWY 23's level of service is 600. However that's irrelevant because we only have the Ops Spec for RVR1200 take offs. This means that no matter what, we need RVR1200 for take off. Period. In addition, we need RVR1200 before we can even begin our taxi. So since the current RVR for run...

Can a C130 maintain flight with 2 engines out on the same wing if there is no other damage?
It should be able to maintain flight easily on two engines. The Dash 7 could and it was notoriously underpowered.

Re: Background check/RAIC question

Calling 911 because you had thoughts of self-harm is not in any way a criminal activity. I would be absolutely shocked if that had any bearing whatsoever on your ability to obtain a RAIC. You were 15. In my opinion a 15 year old calling 911 because of thoughts of self-harm shows maturity. The positi...

Re: Morningstar

I can't speak for the seniority of the Mirabel base but I can tell you that we definitely have guys that commute on the Boeing side. We have a few guys who live in Alberta but are based in YYZ. It's doable. On the Boeing side at least.

When did it expire? If it was before the extension you're out of luck. If it was after, you're good.
