Re: Logbook Corrections

Just make an entry along the lines of "to correct for errors on XX date" new total times are X, Y, etc"
Its really not that big a deal. I would challenge you to find any paper logbook that hasn't been redone and has no errors in it.

Re: Transport Canada shutdown

I paid $50 for a medical extension in the middle of March, days before the blanket extensions were issued. It took me over two months and dozens of emails and phone calls to get a refund. Not a huge deal, but a giant pain in the ass.

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

In your example, if one is on a visual approach on an IFR flight plan, would the departing traffic be allowed to depart VFR on an IFR flight plan? Subject to ATC approval Hmm okay. Let me rephrase. Assuming nice weather. From an ATC point of view: in which situation would a plane that is not cancel...

Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

Whitehorse is a great example of why. As a non radar environment in the mountains, they can only have one aircraft on the approach/missed at a time. Anyone else will be given a hold. This can become extremely limiting as minimum safe is 11,300 and non pressurized aircraft like the caravans and navaj...

Re: Can GA Aircraft Taxi under RVLOP?

How about taxiing for other than departure? Lets say we're taxiing across the field to the self serve fuel pump. Lets say its a VFR aircraft, getting ready to depart when the weather improves.

You can occasionally make a call with global star at those latitudes. I've never had an iridium fail.

Won't be any if he can't get a medical. We've lost at least one pilot to that scenario.

Keep in mind that there have been upwards of 30,000 pilots laid off in the last month, and its going to take years to recover. If I was not already well situated in aviation, I wouldn't be looking to get into it right now.

I've gotten multiple extensions over the years. Virus is easily a good enough reason. Simple lack of access to an examiner is what it usually is for me.

Just because you don't know what TC does when you renew your medical, doesn't mean they're not doing something when you renew your medical.
What are they doing then? The fee didn't change when AIP amendments stopped being sent out.

Re: TC medical fee

I've never paid it. Sometimes it is stolen from my taxes. Sometimes it goes to collections, but they don't actually have any authority to collect and if you call them on it it goes away. I'm still waiting on an explanation as to what this fee is for. My doctor does all the paperwork.

Re: Flying from the right seat

Some aircraft manuals (C208) comes to mind specify "a minimum crew of one in the left seat" but absent of that, flying from the right is totally legal. Instructors do it all the time.

Re: Spidertracks device

We use them fleet wide, no real issues. The main failure point is the power adapter, its best if you can hardwire it in to your aircraft so the plug doesn't get jostled.
