Re: Porter Commuting Schedule

From what I understand commuting is within their route network only. Commuting from outside (WestJet) is on your dollar and needs to be approved by the company. It's 6 months until WestJet (and all non Porter) flights are allowed to be standby/jumpseat. I could be wrong, however. That's correct. Pe...

Re: COPA Membership

I am a member and have been since i started my PPL. I am an owner and a pilot so it was a good fit. My beef with COPA is the magazine has poor editing. In a recent article on a online training program they failed to list the website where someone could sign up. It was repeated verbatim in Canadian ...

Re: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh July 23-29 2018

Re: 45 yr old and want to de a career in aviation

You guys are definitely not too old even if you did want to go to a major airline. I can tell you, from first hand observation, that the smaller companies LOVE getting older applicants with the hopes they won't jump ship for an airline. And I am not referring the the companies that provide less tha...

Re: Q400 seat height

I sit with the seat all of the way up because I like having the visibility over the nose. I'm 5'11" with long legs and a small torso. If it's a CAT II approach I would just lower it to match the eye indicator.

Re: Flight training and Career change

Congratulations on making that decision! I'm sure it was tough but I think you'll look at it and think it was a great decision. There is an industry wide pilot shortage at all levels, so it's a good time to be getting into the industry. Given that, it would be ideal to get to an employable position ...

I flew MLB-YOW last year when we had to divert there due to weather in YTZ. It can be done no problem. We even were already in the descent into YTZ and had to climb back up.

Looking for space in a hangar for a 172 near the GTA

Looking to rent either an entire hangar or space in a hangar for 4-5 months over the winter. We are storing a 172. Ideally within a 2 hour drive of Toronto, but will go further away for the right price. Also will consider Windsor or Sudbury. PM me or email ctmorawetz@hotmail.com

Re: Oshawa / Durham Flying Club?

The closest thing to a Flying Club in Oshawa is COPA Flight 70. They don't have any aircraft to rent, nor do they offer flight training but they do have social events and fly outs that you would come to expect at a flying club.

Orillia/Lake St. John Airport (CNJ4) is doing a ton of upgrades currently. Was in there on Monday. They recently paved one of the runways and are buildings 3 rows of T-hangars and a new terminal building. Fuel was $1.74 per litre.

Re: Looking for ADS-B out recommendations

I installed the Appareo Stratus ESGi earlier this spring in my RV6A. It was fairly straightforward, and comes with the GPS antennae. At the time I felt it was the most affordable option, and fit in the panel where my old King transponder was. It worked well on a recent flight from BC to St. Vincent...

Looking for ADS-B out recommendations

Hi all, Our transponder bit the dust in our 172 and because we travel to the USA quite a bit, we figure we may as well upgrade from a Mode C Transponder to one that meets the requirements for the US starting in 2020. We only fly VFR in this aircraft. We are considering the Garmin GTX 335 Transponder...

Re: float block time in the GTA?

Likely the only way you get any time on a float plane without a CPL is to buy a share of a float plane. I don't know of anyone that offers block time on floats unless you rent from one of the float flight schools in Southern Ontario.
