Re: Lesson Plans

I appreciate the comment, but the question still stands :wink: This is more so for my own enjoyment and to better organize myself when teaching type familiarization. I'm not exactly seeking out an instructor rating anywhere in the near future. Any hint as to what kind of gig you have doing type fam...

Re: Fired?

I'd be rather choked if any of my employees did such a thing. As long as you're accepting a paycheque I think you owe your employer better behaviour than that. If you're that upset then maybe quit instead of posting that kind of trash.

FYI, here's the actual sign.

Re: What's with the "circle check" before takeoff?

Interesting thread. Firstly, I'd like to say I've never seen or even heard of this procedure before in 20 plus years of flying/instructing. Mind you the majority has been in Western Canada and the US. I don't think this is instructor bashing so much as a discussion about the actual value of a partic...

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

You're right mixturerich, it is all about perspective and it is difficult to decide if you should react locally or globally. And perhaps if we in the 1st world are going to stick with the economic and social restructuring to fight Covid, we also have to step up to the redistribution of wealth to hel...

And you miss my point which is - don't use BS to try and try and make your own points.

Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

“No shirt, no shoes, no service” is universally accepted as a sensible health precaution and nobody loses their minds over it, but somehow masks during a pandemic is a violation of some morons’ rights and a government conspiracy to subjugate citizens and destroy society. It’s amazing how a simple p...

Re: Open the door, no thanks

Speaking of data, here's a graph using the most basic data from Worldometer - worldwide cumulative numbers of cases and deaths. Started Apr 29 at 7% death rate and dropping steadily, now at 4.6% today. Take from it what you will.

Re: Got a letter from a Doctor at Transport regarding my class 01

Just did my medical a couple of days ago and asked my doc about a similar letter - not BMI but an issue that had been resolved 4 years ago - and got the following. Apparently the regional Chief Medical Officers all tended to be old and rather long in the tooth and hadn't necessarily kept up with the...

Re: Flight training with masks?

Masks in the cockpit are a pain, but way better than not flying at all. The most comfortable I've found are the disposable ones. They are light enough and the elastic around the ears have lots of give so stay comfortable even with glasses. They don't trap heat like cloth ones do and you can actually...

Re: Written Exam Exemption

They still will have to write the exam before they can submit their application but they can get the flight test out of the way. They can book the exam as TC is planning to start allowing exams on a scheduled basis, to limit access in and out of the offices obviously, in early July. It will take a w...
