Re: "Digital" 406 MHz ELTs to Be Mandatory - TC

I used a 406 ELT once, self activated after an engine failure in flight. From 7500' to surface and successful landing, and about 10 minutes, you would think they could get a pretty accurate location with this super advanced technology. They managed to narrow my location down to a 50NM radius circle ...

Re: Does FSS clear IFR aircraft to land at RAAS MF's?

To muddy the water further - FSS WILL give you your IFR clearance (I don't know about muskoka specifically, but in some places) but its not actually them clearing you. They've made a phone call to the appropriate center and are just relaying the information. Also worth noting - controlled airspace i...

Re: 703 Piston Twin T/O Perf requirements

there is no requirement to do the performance calculations required of 704/705 ME aircraft. That said, you do have an obligation to operate the aircraft within its limitations - if the manual says you need 2000' to get airborne, and you depart from 1500', you're going to be fine, right up until you'...

Re: Self attestation for medical renewal

The way I read it, the self attestation is only good till Aug 1 anyway. What a goat show. The August 1 change is to handle the previous exemption, which was a blanket 60 day extension for anyone expiring between April 1 and June 1 (extending them to a max of Aug 1). Then TC changed to the declarati...

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.

Re: Im at a fork in the road

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.

Re: Small aircraft loading

best advice I could give is heaviest stuff as far forward as you can get it. Put light stuff at the back and that will lock the other stuff from shifting back. If it is not a full load then ropes and nets work well. Take advantage of float compartments (although you almost always forget you put som...
