Re: Pilot training

The math and physics required is not very high level. It would make things easier if you did well in math and physics but you won't need to take any math or physics courses. You will only need to learn how to calculate things like how much fuel you need to get a certain distance with the wind affect...

Re: okotoks flight school

Nice. Also, a few years ago I returned to YBW for some dual. Even after doing it a few times I was still a bit uncomfortable switching from tower to outer tower to Calgary VFR to practice area frequency then the same in reverse order just to go do a bit of upper air practice. Four hours in I was a b...

Re: okotoks flight school

But waiting for twenty minutes because you are number 6 for take off and there are planes landing at a busy airport, is after the chocks have been pulled and you taxied to position. I'm not saying a school should let me sit there for free but I feel like that is potentially adding hours to anyone th...

Excellent post. Basically it looks like I need a girl friend (boy friend? Modern times it's not nice to be picky about gender) that likes long walks?

What happened to criminology? Do that and get your fancy flying license at a less expensive school and you're golden.

AirCanada doesn't care what degree you have. It could be in anything.

Re: okotoks flight school

Maybe because people start flying before they have a radio license, then they build hours being number 6 for take off, getting used to controllers, flying in traffic etc.

Things are a bit different compared to the good old days, learning nordo off a big grass circle.

Re: Flying Through YYC Class C Question

Unless it's very quiet, expect terminal to take the easy way out and take you way North or way South. I can fly right over the top of LAX in Class B airspace but heaven forbid I try to transit YYC's Class C! (I know controllers are trying their best, it's the system that's broken) I laughed.

Re: could of been the whiskey-could of been the beer

So, the younger guy was merely detained for questioning being with the other guy who did not metabolize the wine he had with dinner the night before. Then the media decides it can get more attention claiming they were both liquored up. Hang 'em high. No solidarity for your fellow pilots. Just panic....

I guess I'll admit. The 8mg Coversyl + seems to be doing the trick.

Only noticeable downside is I overheat pretty quick. Maybe I'll be ready for winter.

I'm annoyed that my MD said out loud, "Yay, the trial and error worked." :|

You can ask your TC Doctor. I suspect it's the same as blood pressure medication. Transport Canada doesn't have a policy on it. The FAA requires you take a week to make sure you are stabilized on a new prescription, but transport has no information available, My mom used to get cortisone shots and h...
