Re: RCAF reserve as a second job

In order to wash out one must first apply. Being a pilot in the CF is secondary to to being an officer. I have a CD, jump wings and do not wish to be a pointy head but thanks. Time at the controls means just that, actual logable time. If you have 20 years and 2000 hours your about as skilled as a PP...

Re: Saskatchewan Provincial Park Restrictions for Float Planes

That’s exactly what I said Bede. They can not make a regulation on the Take-off and Landing of plane. The take-off and landing and where and where not a plane can do this is the “core” of aviation. The service of alcohol provincial laws would only apply while the aircraft is on the ground. It would ...

Re: RCAF reserve as a second job

While Air Canada may not have wanted you, there are several smaller operators who had you had the qualifications might have looked at you. Just like the CF attitude, not a lot of operators want x military guys. The Canadian military and flying are severely disconnected. Maybe one day we can all just...

Re: AIR BRAVO

Digits I don't know what would hold up in court. That would depend on the contract, your ability to understand and argue it and the judge. But they will most likely come after you and if you don't defend yourself you have to pay up. If that's a risk you would want to take.... well that's totally up ...

Re: Saskatchewan Provincial Park Restrictions for Float Planes

Provincial governments can not technically make regulations on the landing and take off of an aircraft. Bodies of water no matter where they are, are also the sole jurisdiction of the federal government. National parks are another story because they are administered by the Federal Government and the...

The bond is quite solid there so if they fire you becuse you dont want to put fuel on your credit card or some other call you make that they don't like.....

Re: Offering Flights with a PPL

The same would be true if I flew people in my private king air toy. The Airlines have missed the mark.... Air Taxis too. It’s those little things... Like insurance, a company that is local to sue, a driver with the proper licence and medical etc. Most cabbies don’t own their car and if they do even ...

I read a “business insider” issue I think it was. People think this is totally legit to do in the air. I won’t ride in an Uber anything. Underground cabs is all they are.

Re: Offering Flights with a PPL

It’s going to be interesting as those “ride sharing” companies try and break into aviation. There are a lot of people in the mindset that this will happen. They beat taxi companies some how, there no way you are sharing your car. You are driving for hire and reward, you don’t have the license or the...

Re: Thinking about plane purchase

A nicely equipped 172 with the right floats enngine and STCs will more then do the trick. Useful load on them can be 7-800 lbs. the 180 is maybe 900. If you want a year round plane you probably want a nose dragger too. Definitely cheaper on insurance. How often will you have 4 people in the plane? A...

Re: Maintenance costs-engine size

The 180 and a properly equipped 172 are not as far off as you think. 172s can have from 160-210hp and with the right floats and stc have a payload of 7-800lbs. 180s have 8-900. That said the price to buy a 180 and 172 on floats is not always that far apart. Sometimes the 172s are more. I flew one fo...

Re: New pot legislatiion brings on talk of pilot pee in a cup

There gonna have a real hard time telling pilots especially private pilots and ultralight pilots they can't do this. They won't be able to segment us off either as lots of private pilots also have a bare bones cpl as a tax write off. I know we want to think we are the smartest people in the world bu...

Re: Smooth air charter/air Nunavut

Last loser I knew who went there had to pay 10k upfront. Bad pay, they do give you housing or an allowance. You will get to see Greenland. The people who work there are the people no one wants to give experience too. Got a licence did a few piston jobs but just can't get past it. So they go there to...

That new job ad was much better. But like everyone is saying, stop being a stone people step on. The best kept secret it could be. The Glassdoor reviews on the non flying side are that it's an ok place to get experience but not a long term career. The chief complaint is the low pay across the board....

Such a shady answer. That's a way of saying it's shite. If you want people to stay pay them to stay. I'm sure you pay other employees in your company make more then you pay your pilots.

Re: Single Pilot Airliners?

What about the 8 hour rule? This won't help at all, especially on long haul in say a 787 that is already down to two crew no augment. Autopilot breaks while running a checklist after an engine failure.
