Re: The PM needs a new ride

The Transat 310s are gone irrespective of the merger.

Also they can be bought for less the scrap value, but then the RCAF would need to put the manpower into scrapping them.

Re: Do you log landings

Interesting. It's 5 landing in 6 months, not 90 days, and the 6 months is an upper limit, not a lower one. I don't think the recency rules are there to build experience, they are there for recency. To me 5 solo circuits before taking passengers meets both the intent and the specifics of the regulati...

Re: RAIC Passes

You will need a multi employer pass but I have only seen those for ground staff working at a single airport. Speak to both your employers and ask the pass office at both airports what they suggest.

VTA Changes

I can't find anywhere stating the differences between VTA editions. Specifically I'm trying to find out what has changed between the 43rd and 44th edition of the YVR VTA. Does NavCanada publish this anywhere?

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

Can't you just submit the whole package to TC without having it signed by an AP? Unless you are in a hurry to get the licence right away, is there a need to go through an AP?

Re: ADS-B

Exactly. It's as if NavCanada suddenly decided that the minimum visibility for VFR in Class C is 5 NM, and Transport Canada decided that as the regulator, their own regulations don't apply because NavCanada provides the service in that airspace. In the meantime, NavCanada wants everyone in Class A a...

Re: ILS question

Legally allowed? Of course. Anyone that thinks there is a regulation requiring a certain autopilot mode at a certain time should go find the regulation. Please let me know if they do, I've done it a dozen times this year. Using VS to follow a glideslope is not best practice if you can couple it inst...

Re: Conventional Gear Situation

Ok I think I understand. You could log the first 3 hours as dual, putting both your names in the journey log and having your uncle sign those entries. Then for the rest of your flying have your uncle on board for insurance and training purposes but only put your name in the journey log, you sign the...

Re: Conventional Gear Situation

I may have misunderstood. Are you going to be flying this aircraft solo, or only with your uncle on board? Are you being added to the insurance and if so, what requirements has the underwriter put in place for you to be PIC?

Re: Conventional Gear Situation

It is absolutely legal for your uncle to train you to fly a new type with his PPL and you can log it as dual. As for logging the time as PIC, you're asking the wrong question. Instead of trying to figure out what you can and cannot get away with, ask yourself this simple question: who is pilot in co...

Re: A Field Guide to NOTAMs

Essential for flight safety. I'm sure your FBO would inform you if the airport had blocked all access. If a taxiway cannot handle a 737, ATC will not clear it onto that taxiway. There are many ways of dealing with trip planning details, the point of NOTAMs is supposed to be safety items important en...

Re: A Field Guide to NOTAMs

What is clear is that there is a need for a system to communicate essential flight safety information that cannot wait for the next update cycle. This system used to be NOTAMs, but now NOTAMs are so full of garbage that there is effectively no system. Perhaps we need a new system that sends out esse...

Re: ADS-B

We don't know what the requirements will be for ADS-B in Canada. Nor do we know when the requirements will take effect once they decide what they will be. The unofficial advice from Transport Canada is "don't equip yet", and that was given to me by someone physically standing in the US so basically ...

Re: Acceptable proof of hours for TC rating.

I don't bother with phone calls anymore, too easy to ignore. When you think about it, if someone is not doing their job, calling them isn't going to change that. I would send an email to the generic aviation.pac@tc.gc.ca and ask what the status of the application is. It will make it's way to the cor...

Re: Starting PPL - Night VFR + Multi IFR immediately after?

Your plan sounds like a recipe for a fatality. My thoughts in no particular order: What matters to the insurance company is PIC time and most importantly time on type. If you are not going to be flying a twin, doing a multi IFR would be a complete waste of time that early in the game. Get your PPL, ...

Re: Strong headwinds cause crash?

I think the gusty conditions beyond the pilot's abilities is what caused the stall, not lowering the nose. It says subsequent.

What I want to know is how do headwinds make you descend and how do you avoid power lines below you by lowering the nose?

I'm not a military pilot, have never flown formation, and know nothing of small jets but from what I can see of the results the Tutor is a great plane for a formation team. A slow roll by a nine ship formation is just way more impressive than anything I've seen from other demo teams. Plus the Tutor ...
