Garmin 696 + XM antenna + RAM Mount for sale

As I probably won't return to VFR bush flying (heli) anytime soon (in the HEMS world now...) I've decided to sell my Garmin 696 GPS unit that I used for the summer seasons in 2012/2013 (and haven't used since). It is in good-shape, everything works, the battery charges to 100% (and stays powered up ...

Re: Ethiopian Boeing 787 new route CYYZ start Nov 9 2012

Yes I am complaining, but I feel with cause. Not having gluten free food one can safely eat during 20 hour period while stuck on an airplane is a BIG deal. Eating gluten accidentally can lead to immediate stomach issues and takes 6-8 weeks for the inflammation reaction in the upper intestine to sett...

Re: Ethiopian Boeing 787 new route CYYZ start Nov 9 2012

Having recently flown Ethionpian's 787 service Addis Ababa to Dulles I can say without hesitation that the stop over in Rome for 'one hour' is a disaster. We were there at least two hours, you can't get off the airplane as it isn't parked at a terminal and they don't let you sleep, or give you anyth...

Re: Maybe I'm missing something here Re: Medical Validity

I ran into this with the Medical office at TC last year when my new 'sticker' arrived with what I viewed as too early an examination date (I thought they would make it the same as the previous years + one year. I am <40). The simple explanation from them at the time was that their computer system wa...

Re: TC ATPL -> FAA ATP issues/confusion on the part of the F

Thanks for all the info guys. This makes great sense to me, and is in fact what they verbally suggested, but they couldn't find in their guidance documents. I will wait and see what arrives in the mail and hope someone catches the error. Otherwise I'll be calling them. Thankfully I have a couple of ...

TC ATPL -> FAA ATP issues/confusion on the part of the FAA

Hi, My question is this, has anyone else converted a TC ATPL(A) MSELS license to a FAA ATP. If so, which ATP license were you given, multi? and single? I recently went through all the hoops to convert my Canadian ATPL(A) - MSELS license under the bilateral agreement to a US one. But bottom line I wa...
