Re: Manitoba to pembroke on floats

CNP3 (CNB5 in the water aerodrome sup) is your nearest aerodrome with water access for 100LL.

Where in MB? Type? Does your bird have a MoGas STC by chance?

Feel free to PM, happy to help!

Who's gotten a lay off?

Hi all, As we all know COVID-19 has been difficult on the airline industry to say the least and who knows how much worse it might get. I fly for a small corporate flight department where none of us are worried about lay off notices. (So far as we see it) I am curious if anyone in the corporate flyin...

How about teaching the pilot to use the red mixture knob properly?
You took my breath away. Why pilot owners don't know more about this is beyond me!

I can't find the topic, but I've asked a similar question here once. The biggest point to remember is that your tax status (self employed) doesn't necessarily mean that you can't be considered an employee for liability reasons.

Though he's not right on the airport, he's close enough that having the engine re-n-re'd by Orillia Aviation works okay. Otherwise, it's into the back of a pickup (usua...

Re: Incorporating a partnership

I’ve done it in the past and if I had a chance to do it again I would run in the opposite direction.

If you’re keen on moving forward with it I would strongly suggest having an aviation knowledgeable corporate lawyer and an accountant who is also aviation savy.
