Re: That didn't take long...

You should read it again. May be required to pay for training. Not the same as PCC. They seemed to have trouble finding qualified pilots in the past. Not a bad company. You stay at a 5 star lodge, free food, good tips. I might even apply.

Re: Covid-19 impact of float operations

"This isn't going to last forever, we'll all be eating KD this year but everything will surge back hard as the restrictions are lifted." I wish. Fly in fishing is a luxury vacation.

TC MEDICAL EXTENSIONS COVID 19

So, TC has advised that no new medical exams are to be performed until later and all medicals are good til Aug. 1. Great, except I am over 60 and fly commercially on floats. After 6 months, I don't renew my CAT 1 medical but revert to a private endorsement. I need to do my medical in April to renew....

Re: Hey TC maybe this is a good time to extend pilot's medical validity

My doctor is the head surgeon at the hospital. Visitors not allowed. Hmmm. Usually get it in Apr. so that it lasts the float season. An extension would be nice.

100 hr is enough for a beaver? Now I know why there were at least 5 deadly crashes in Canada last year.

Legal question!

A question. Can a private pilot fly a commercially registered airplane for a company to perform non revenue camp work and supplies, ie, fuel, motors, camp work. If they can, what is the CP's responsibility? Do they need tdg training? Anything other considerations?

Thanks for any advice.

Android aviation apps

A young pilot showed me a phone app that was free and had multiple av maps on it. One of the maps was a gps VNC with live weather on it. Any idea which app? He says it was free on play store.

Thanks in advance

Which part of the country was this. I would like to try. In my first years on a beaver, we weren't aloud to wear head sets. Deaf as a brick now.

Re: Demand for float drivers 2019?

Well I'm not sure if it's related, but the season is only half over and 6 float planes that I know of have crashed. Mainly beavers. Lots of dead people. One pilot had over 20,000 hr. I could be wrong, but I'm guessing most of the pilots may have been low time. How much money does an operator save hi...

Re: Failure to complete 2 yr currency

My question is simply to do with the validity of your license. If you haven't done a recurrency in 2 years, can you legally fly an airplane. If you have an accident, will you be insured. It seems so vague. It only says you have to do it. Nowhere does it say something like....Failure to comply will r...

I havent been able to find the consequences of not having done a 2 yr recurrency. cars 401.5. Do you no longer have a valid license. What if you're ramped. If you own a plane is the insurance valid?
