Re: Becoming a AME with a criminal record

I think that if you paid for your crimes and are in good standing withe law, it shouldn't be a problem, but if you start advertising it, it will become a problem. If you advertise it its because either you are insecure and find it glorious, therefore not rehabilitated and potentially a problem. peop...

Re: Lancair ES type certificate ---Help Needed

Cessna TTX needs a type rating? Based on which criterion? I can’t see it in the list in the CARs. The TTX evolved from the Columbia 400/350/300 and from the experimental Lancair ES, I have requested an exception and let a local ES pilot train me and do the recomend. That wasn’t acceptable so the ne...

BD5 Down in Provost Alberta, Pilot Deceased

Monday afternoon a BD5 went down in Provost Alberta, the pilot was a 75 years old highly experienced aviation enthusiast, IFR certified and over 2000 hours, most of it in his Bonanza.

Out of respect for his memory and family I'm not releasing his name.


Rest in Peace!
