Re: Written exam training for AIRAT

Thanks for the info. I ended up buying the subscription from pilottraining.ca for 270 days. I like it. I've been so long out of it I appreciate the much needed General Aviation review. It is funny how certain things stick to your mind for years and other are flushed as soon as you stop instructing.....

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

Yes and no !

You've been given the clearance to descend to 3000' and intercept on present heading and clear for the approach...and then comm failure !
So ATC calls you back for acknowledgement, you can hear ATC but you can't transmit ! :)

I know it is far fetched !

Written exam training for AIRAT

Hello, I am looking at 3 sources : Nizus, pilottraining.ca, Cul...etc. The first one is 39$ for 1 month. The company wrote me that the sample exams they have contain questions for the AIRAT, however it seems to me AIRAF oriented. The second has 2 AIRAT samples, but it cost 150$ although it is good f...

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

It is a point, also I reread those answers and sure enough, #4 is the best. However in real life, it is also a matter of common sense. Sometimes ATC vectors you for a 7 miles final, hence in certain cases clearing you bellow the MSA. So in this case, I won't climb back again as I would end up above ...

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

That is a bit tricky cause ATC cleared you to 3000'.
The reason for this clearance could be that keeping 3800' til intercept would put you above the GS.
I would have gotten the wrong answer but I would have descended to 3000' intercept the loc and do the approach.

Re: RVOP/LVOP Question, Please help.

In theory YHZ airport is good to 600 feet for 23.
So is there something missing ? A Notam or a note ?
Something about the plane we don't know ?

Re: Technology and Flight tests.

Isn't iPad + phone a sufficient redundancy? Or they're saying screen is too small? Haha, that's a funny point. I'm not really sure what the examiners at airports around me are actually going to do. I just know that the older pilots at my FTU think anyone who uses an iPad is bound to CFIT. That's a ...

Also, I am also thinking of renewing my instructor but I am wondering if it is worth it these days.
Are there a lot of people signing up for a course with the covid ?

Re: Renewing Expired Flight Instructor Rating

True ! Also, you spend a lot of time going down at high speed in order to lose altitude quickly. So what you see most of the time is a high rate of descent reinforcing this feeling. On the approach the rate of descent will be reduced, but for that you keep a bit of thrust to avoid sinking. (High dra...

Re: Renewing Expired Flight Instructor Rating

As far as getting used to light planes again coming from a 737. You don't start the flare between 30 or 50 feet in a Cessna...trust me ! I bet you will be floating your plane half the runway before you touchdown. A Cessna glides a lot better than a 737 on the forced approach. You'll be overflying th...

It used to be single pilot ifr only. But I would say 400 to 600 hr a year is not bad.

Re: Commencer son parcours à Montréal

Le médical, tu peux le faire en Europe. Comme ça tu évites les mauvaises surprises sur place. Il vaut mieux aussi bien regarder ce qui est possible du point de vue de l'immigration. Il est probablement possible de travailler sans rp, mais en général on est lié à l'employeur qui a fait les démarches.

Re: Anyone had a RAIC pass lately? Wait time?

My last renewal took 8 months. The reason is that I spent over 3 months in Europe during the last 5 years. At the end of the 8 months I started to call the lady in Ottawa and explained her that I needed my red one in order to fly out of European countries. She told me that she will put my applicatio...

Re: RAIC after travelling overseas

It just took me 9 months to renew mine cause I was more than 3 months abroad during the last 5 years. But in your case I don't think you can do anything before beiing hired. Once hired you apply and ask for the security clearance. During the mean time you'll be provided with a temporary RAIC which w...
