Re: Possible error in W+B amendment?

"aircraft empty weight and empty centre of gravity and any change in the aircraft empty weight and empty centre of gravity" is not the same as "aircraft empty weight and empty centre of gravity". The changes must be entered. I'm not asking you to take my word for it BPF, read the CARs and if you ar...

Re: A broken part is not a "conformity" issue - OFFICIAL

Exactly. It's a real shame that almost no private owners or commercial pilots operating without an MEL are aware of those notes. All they learned from flight school was "any squawk in the journey log grounds the airplane". The rule at my club is that any defect gets entered immediately in the journe...

Also weight and balance amendments must be entered in the journey log. Check those entries.

Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

Don't overthink it. You'll operate under CAR 604, but with no requirement for a PORD. The same as every private Cessna at the airfield. Did you mean operate under CAR Part VI? Most Cessnas cannot operate under 604. 604.02 This Subpart applies to the following Canadian aircraft: (a) large aeroplanes...

Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

Hello, My boss owns a "non aviation" incorporated business in Alberta. He wants to buy a Cessna 210 for business travel. The plane would be registered under his corporation. He wants me to fly it for him. I would mostly transport my boss, other executives, and maybe their family members. None of th...

Re: Steep Turns At Low Altitude

Should be easy to overcome. If you are afraid of steep turns at low altitude and airspeed, go spend a bunch of time practicing steep turns at high altitude and low airspeed. Start at your approach speed and do a bunch of 30° and 45° bank turns at 5000', then slow 5 knots and do a bunch of 30° bank t...

Re: Syllabus for Gp 3 IFR + PTR questions for freelance CFI

Your instructor has reason to be concerned. I've seen what happens when someone with lots of operational experience tries to train a private pilot for an instrument rating with no experience doing so and no syllabus. Unless the candidate is extremely self motivated and learns all the theory on their...

Re: Abandoned aircraft — opinion needed

We have had several similar incidents. We always start by sending a letter offering to move the plane out of the hangar and into a tie down spot in order to help reduce the accumulating unpaid rent. That option is almost always taken but in the one case where it wasn't, we had to get a court order a...

What a ridiculous position. Did you explain to them that you have a "neck" which allows your head to "turn" in order to see out of either window?

Re: 703 one employee?

Yes, both a privately registered aircraft and a commercially registered one will need someone making those decisions. My point was that as the owner of a private aircraft, very little of the maintenance schedule is mandatory. Aside from (off the top of my head) the compass, tach, propeller, transpon...

Re: 703 one employee?

Insurance is the tip of the iceberg. As a private aircraft you can do a lot of your maintenance yourself. Look up the list of elementary maintenance items in the CARs. You will also be able to decide what recommended maintenance gets done and what gets deferred. As a commercially registered aircraft...

Re: How The Heck Do You Get Into Tofino?

Personally if it was me, though, I’d take T609 to NAGLI at 5700 feet and then direct TEXEC at 5700 then descend (a more reasonable 400 ft/NM). The airspace to the south of TEXEC is protected for the shuttle at 3700 plus it’s over ocean. I don’t think any terrain will come up and bite you. That's wh...
