Is cancelling different than suspending?
Well, yes. A suspended certificate can be reinstated. A cancelled one can't - it sounds like you need to apply for a new one ab-initio.

Re: Cleared to Taxi to a rwy is not a clearance to cross any rwy

Does anyone know if the AIM or regulation says that you must get a clearance from ATC to exit from the landing runway onto another runway? In the AIM - 4.4.4 - Taxiing, page 238: No aircraft shall exit a runway onto another runway unless instructed or authorized to do so by ATC. Weird. It used to s...

Re: Is it really Prist

It can't be beyond the wisdom of someone to create a simple to use test kit, like the ones they use for first line narcotics testing.
Here's a test for urea in milk; it should be straightforward to adapt for fuel.

Similarly, a test for prist could be developed...?

Re: Installing seat belts on pre-78 SE aircraft

As far as I know, maintenance has to be conducted “according to” the maintenance manual. So when you change the seatbelts you have to follow the procedures listed for that task. “According to” doesn’t in my understanding mean “everything listed in”. No - it doesn't. Well, let's see: 571.02 (1) Subj...

Re: Climb / Descent Phraseology

CAP413 refers to use of "TO" with altitude and flight level in section 3.9. Doesn't appear to say anything about "FOR" though.

This eurocontrol document:

says something about it on page 16, but it's not exactly what the OP asked for.
