Re: Approved List of Medications

No idea if this is correct or not but, since you mentioned the Air Cadet angle this MIGHT be the reason. The Air Cadet operations also have a bit of a foot in the door with military aviation which has similar, but potentially different, regulations and guidance material. This is taken from an out of...

Re: IATRA validity 2.0

Individual Type Ratings don't expire so you wouldn't get the same specific Type Rating issued a second time. While each Type Rating is issued specific to an aircraft type, they are all technically called a "two crew rating" so the standard is simply referencing the Type Ratings by their general term...

Re: Montair Info Updated-2017

I see Montair is pusing their "IATPL" integrated course on social media now. I still dont' see what writing the exams at 250 hours will gain you. Are they frozen or do you still have to hit 1500 hours in 2 years from writing? I was not away TC had a "frozen ATPL" option? If the exams are written as...

Re: If your IFR rating lapses.

My IFR expired about 5 years ago and at that time if didn't renew your IFR within 2 years you lost your written exams. The way I read the new regs the rules have changed.

Re: Looking for a freelancer for Class 4

It is a spin certified 140, and no you don't need one for a class 4 flight test. No issues there :) If it's an initial Instructor Rating flight test then you do indeed need to provide an aircraft certified for spins. (At least according to the Flight Test Guide and 421.69 (4). Whether or not the ex...

Re: newly expired pilot license

I assume that you mean that your blue Aviation Document Booklet has expired. If that's the case, you'll have to submit an application for a new booklet using this form . To do that you'll need a new passport photo. Send it in to TC and wait a few months and a new booklet will arrive in the mail. Dep...

Re: While in Controlled Airspace

In the interest of splitting hairs, the reference to GASA is outdated. I'm assuming that it was the politically correct crowd that prompted the change but the GASA was renamed the AMA -- Area Minimum Altitude -- several years ago. The concept didn't change but the terminology was updated.

Re: SCDA Approaches

You only add 50' if you're doing an SCDA on one engine, otherwise T.C has given a let to dip below 50' assuming you execute the missed at DH. Do you have a reference for this? I'm looking at the PPT TC put together, and it also seems to indicate an "allowed" dip, but I can't find any reference for ...

If there was a change from a Category 3 to a Category 1 medical that should have generated a new sticker to add to the Aviation Document booklet.

Re: Question for the aviation regulation wizards

Assuming that the person has been flying the aircraft recently, getting the Type Rating is easy. You cited 421.40 for the Type Rating requirements, which is correct but there are also "Credits for Foreign Applicants" at the end. In the case of a Type Rating there is the following: (b) Pilot Proficie...

Re: Confused, is this duty day legal?

I'll second what jschnurr said about the need for 3 days off. That being said, you didn't have three days off (your message said two days) before your eight-day pairing so you can't use the 3/17 scheme. Consequently you cannot work any more day until you receive three consecutive days free from duty...
