Re: Effective passenger safety review

For my students flight tests they give a pax briefing just before starting up which includes seat belts, doors, no smoking etc, they also give a quick pre-take off briefing which includes the type of take off, flap setting, approx rotation speed, climb out speed and no go point. For the approach bri...

Re: ag-training recurrency

I knew as much not to post on this forum. What a big waste of f---ing time. Instead i called up a friend of mine who's got thousands of ag flying time and teaches the course at a well established school. He was glad to help me and never once did i hear sarcasm or ridicule on what i wanted to do. Too...

Re: ag-training recurrency

This would be purely in-house training and definitely not a revenue stream.

Re: ag-training recurrency

Not at all. My boss owns a spray company and a flight school. I see no harm in going up flying with them (the ag-pilots) just before the season begins and helping them crack off the rust and perhaps review exercises they probably haven't done since ag-school.

ag-training for recurrency

Hey all, Well it's that time of year again. My boss is frantically trying to get his Thrushes ready to go for yet another season of ag-spraying. Last summer was awesome for us because all of our aircraft came back intact and they got lots of acres done. However, the summer before last, saw one groun...

Re: Redbird TD2 vs. Elite Pro-panel 2

Thanks for the reply. I just cant find any unbiased opinions about the two different sims. Does anyone have any feedback on either one?

Redbird TD2 vs. Elite Pro-panel 2

Hi All, My school is looking to get a basic certified flight simulator and I need some feedback on the above mentioned sims. This is not an exclusive list so if you have other affordable suggestions, that would also be welcomed. P.S. The school owner likes the look of the Redbird TD2 but i am hesita...

Re: Banner Towing

Somehow all of that work doesn't sound like time well spent. It's funny how something relatively simple in concept gets so weighed down in bureaucracy with change in OC, aircraft specs, insurance, etc. etc. I appreciate your comments which have reduced my work load in an area not likely to bear any ...

Re: Banner Towing

I knew something as simple as towing a banner behind an aircraft wouldn't be simple. Haha. So am i right that all those questions I asked in my original post will lead me down a dark and complicated path of TC and massive headaches?

Banner Towing

Hello all, I am the CFI of a small flight school in a relatively rural area and received a phone call from a local radio station enquiring about us towing a banner with their radio station name on it. I said that we weren't in a financial position to buy all the stuff required but would look into th...

Re: Flight training on student's aircraft

A lot of the locals around are quite well-off but I've heard from the local AME's that they would rather fly a timed out aircraft engine than get a remanded one. Some even brag about how many forced approaches they have had to do. Of course this attitude bothers me a lot and makes me think twice bef...

Flight training on student's aircraft

Since moving to Manitoba, I've had to train a lot of students on their own aircraft. At first it was great cause I got experience in different aircraft, but most recently one of students lost a cylinder and the other had a throttle cable break while in the overshoot from a forced approach. These two...

Re: Mountain city aviation

I started CFI as a Class 3 at Mountain City and recently upgraded to a class 2. I have about 1600 instructor hours and my last 19 recommends passed. What's the big deal?

Re: Class 2 ride in Manitoba coming up.

Hey Guys, I passed my Class 2 ride last week. The TC examiner I did it with was very helpful. The first item we talked about was CFI duties and Supervision. He had actually sent me about 3 pages of ideas which i then wrote up to fit my school's situation. After about 45 minutes, he gave me steep tur...

Yesterday I did a really great job getting my Class 2 upgrade. Prior to that, I was a lone Class 3/CFI with no where to turn for advice on flight training. I have posted several topics on here and havent always thanked you guys for your interest and advice. Thank you very much for helping me out in ...

At the end of September I'll be doing my class 2 ride. Has anyone done their ride in Manitoba recently and can they tell me what to expect?
