Re: Is this the new norm?

You can fit a generic alternate static port for about $100 all in - I did.

Re: Is this the new norm?

You need the usual flight instruments, navigation gear for the intended flight, True... and real alternate static. Breaking the glass on the VSI doesn't count. You're right... I'd never noticed that before. Equipment requirements are listed in 605.18. For an instrument rating flight test you do nee...

Re: The beginning of the end of small private airstrips

Since you can’t put an aerodrome in a built up area (only a certificated airport), a court would likely say that your putative ״hangar” isn’t really anything to do with aviation and enforce the city’s jurisdiction and zoning laws. On the other hand, if you could get the federal government to give yo...

Re: The beginning of the end of small private airstrips

There was a recent case in Oshawa where the municipality got thoroughly spanked by the judge for trying to impose building regulations on a leaseholder.

I've not seen any federal regulation that requires anyone to build to any provincial standard; any idea where to look?

Re: The beginning of the end of small private airstrips

Didnt see anything is there regarding hangars and buldings though, are they still under federal authority or did that get changed? Nobody’s authority over anything has changed. All that happened is TC instituted a process for public consultation before building or enlarging an aerodrome. Municipal ...

S.
The consultation exercise is prior to commencing any "work". I guess if your lawn is already flat enough to land on, then you don't need to consult.

The AC makes it clear what’s covered, or not. Private strips for personal use are included. If it’s primarily agricultural use, it’s not.

Re: The beginning of the end of small private airstrips

Yes. It’s all in CAR 307. It’s not particularly onerous. If your proposed aerodrome is away from a built up area, you need to write to your neighbours and the minister and a few other people, and solicit comments and objections. Consider the objections and comments, and prepare a report as to how yo...

Re: New Booklet. Incorrect Medical.

I think you are. But you won't get a new sticker. It's common for a new booklet to be issued before a medical update has been processed. TC issued an instruction somewhere that a currently valid medical stamp in an old booklet validates the licence in a new booklet. But you have to carry both bookle...

Landing and taking off in city limits is governed by CAR 602.13. Provincial regulation wouldn’t apply.

Re: Logging Instrument time

You can log as much IFR time as you want. Also IMQ time, PZX time, and ABCDEFG time. Fill your boots. Invent some more, too. Letters for everyone, they’re free. And use as many columns in your logbook for which you have room. Use the margins, too. The only thing that TC cares about is “instrument ti...

Re: Aircraft checkout who logs pic

So if you're a licensed pilot you should get the pic. You're not receiving instruction, they're asking you to perform manoeuvres to show that you can fly the aircraft correctly. But it still isn't clear. I didn't know 2 could log pic in aircraft in usa. You can still demonstrate your proficiency if...

Re: Aircraft checkout who logs pic

There's no such official thing as a "checkout" in Canada, and so whoever is the pilot in command logs PIC. You should agree who is PIC before the flight; if a contravention occurs and TC wants to punish someone you want to have evidence that you agreed who it was going to be, beforehand, or TC will ...

Re: Logging Instrument time

It's fine in theory to say that you can fly without instruments above a solid layer, but in reality, you can't. You can't navigate or pick a heading and figure out your course by looking at the ground, nor can you totally ignore the AI because you're in the clear. I've had the leans on a number of ...

Re: Logging Instrument time

There are two different recording requirements. One is to record whether a flight is (filed) IFR or VFR, as dictated in 401.08(2)(d). The other part is to be able to prove your instrument flight time, towards ratings or licences that have an instrument time experience requirement. If it requires an ...

How about if you are on an IFR flight, VMC and not under a hood? This is still instrument time It's not instrument time. Instrument time means (a) instrument ground time, (b) actual instrument flight time, or (c) simulated instrument flight time; (temps aux instruments) Instrument time and IFR time...

A Cat 1 medical doesn't turn into a Cat 3 when it expires. A Cat 1 medical will validate a CPL or PPL for PPL privileges for the same duration as a Cat 3 medical.

Re: Having trouble flaring?

There are lots of things people can get wrong with their landings. It's just a little premature to suggest, as this thread seems to, that whatever your problem is, this one bit of advice will fix it. Pulling back on the yoke is NOT a continuous, smooth pull. I'd rather see a continuous raising of th...
