Re: Meeting with a pilot

You just need to hang around an airport bar long enough and you'll find your pilot. How do you know which ones are pilots?.... Don't worry, they'll tell you.

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Most recent update, 4 adults and 3 children. Their intended destination was Kingston, 6 km from the airport is where the impact was. At that distance, he should have had a clear shot. Tsb on scene.

A terrible tragedy for the families, my condolences.

Look at Donald Trump. Are you suggesting Donald Trump should be in jail? What specific crime would you indite him for? I think he's talking about his failed business ventures and multiple bankruptcies that have leveraged his "fortune". Once he's done with the presidency I'm sure he'll just go back ...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

There was a program a few years back to train career FOs. Anybody know how that is working, or worked out? IIRC it was called a multi crew license or something along those lines. The Multi-Crew Licence (permanent FO) was announced a number of years back by Transport Canada, for god only knows what ...

Re: Fatal floatplane crash west of Red Lake

Thanks for the update. As someone with little float time, but keen to learn more for future operations, would you agree that it appears to be more of an airborne related issue that could be applicable to any light aircraft rather than a float related. Any comments by the high time float guys would ...

Yes, that's how most pilots get their licenses, mostly males though.

Promoting aviation in Canada is good all around, trying to make it an old boys club is not helpful.

What is the chance of the industry just shutting down in 3-5 years? Airlines are starting to go belly up in Europe. Are there similar chances that it will happen in Canada?

Re: Lien on plane in Ontario

A simple lien search will bring up any liens against said vehicle and who put it on there. After that it's up to the owner to deal with it. Sometimes you can get out of it if the other party has not pursued it, or sometimes the have been settled but the lien not removed - but it can also be a major...

Re: Lien on plane in Ontario

I'm surprised the lien didn't show up during the previous purchase.

That's the problem, they did have the proper paperwork but the go...

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

Everyone should stop flying planes. The 200 is actually more green as it has paid its dues already and a long life prevents wasting a good airframe.

Can't wait for the election to pass now to get rid of all these political azzhats.

I've seen it multiple times where the lien is cleared but never removed from the title until someone goes poking or for a sale. You then have to go through the motions with the issuer again to have it visibly removed. A real bureaucratic p.i.t.a.
