Re: Countries better than Canada for flying?

If you are talking about the quality of the first aviation job (salary, vacation, benefits, equipement), then Europe is probably the best.

If you are talking about the chance of actually getting that first aviation job, Canada is really hard to beat...

They should have taken a bottle out of the back and sprayed it on the wing. If it's good enough for northern Manitoba, it should work anywhere!

Re: Weekend Feild Annuals

As for annual inspections at the tiedown, I think it's a poor idea, and I think that the type of owner who wants that work done this way is not the type of client I'm attracted to. It's a great service if you want to pick up clients. A tie down might be a bit of a stretch, but plenty of folk with a...

Note that you don't actually have to *do* poor work to get sued for poor work.

Re: Weekend Feild Annuals

Cool! With a service like that, I wouldn't expect you to operate at a cheaper rate. If you do want to operate less expensive, give the money back as extra customer service: fixing mistakes, only charging for travel if you are there for a whole day (eg don't show up at 5 pm, be unable to finish the j...

Re: How do you value yourself as a low time pilot?

I all my years flying I never felt that anyone put pressure on me to go flying. I don't get it, if your boss asks you why you won't go and are there anymore options to consider (routing or delay). Why do pilots perceive this as pressure to go. That's not a problem. It's a problem when your boss *te...

Re: Import aircraft for owner maintenance category questions

1) I am assuming that the aircraft needs to be C registered before requesting it moved to “owner maintenance”. Am I correct in assuming that it can be registered as a Canadian aircraft without having to do an import inspection? Without an import inspection you can only get a temporary registration....

If you're a Canadian there's plenty to see right here. The north is magical, at least in the summertime.
Do you want to fly over it, or land on it?

Re: FedEx quietly begin single-pilot tests - ATR 42

Single pilot night flying might not be the best idea...

It might only be cargo, but a cargo plane crash still makes a big crater on the ground.

Devil's advocate time. The Millennial's have very few people to blame for outrageous real estate prices but themselves. Not many years ago, no one (and I mean no one) paid the asking price on a house. You always negotiated down. If someone outbid you, you walked away. I look at people bidding the p...

Re: Debris falls from 777 during emergency landing.

If you want to be a bit of a devil's advocate, an incident like this might be grounds for the FAA to look a bit deeper into the engine and ETOPS certification. One would hope they didn't cut any corners for that certification. Could turn ugly... Especially considering another boeing had similar issu...

Re: Yet another set back(Pilot training at Lufthansa)

It's a shame. Understandable I guess as well. But they always have been from the philosophy of attracting as many applicants as possible, giving them a chance and selecting the best they could find. Hope they can maintain those standards.
