Re: Turnaround time for first Aviation Medical

even a Class IV medical looks suspect as one of the questions asks specifically if I've ever been denied a license due to a medical issue, which I would think I would have to answer 'yes' if this regional head denies me the Class I. What's the point of even having a Class IV category then? :( Answe...

Hi all! I was wondering how do you become a pilot of a bush plane? What kind of a pilot license do I need, here in Canada?
Nowadays, you can call yourself a bush pilot if you fly more northern than the guy you are talking to.

From my company’s jumpseat handbook.
Wouldn't that be for company personnel? I'd find it hard to believe that a 1900 pilot jumpseating on a 747 at a different company would be considered a crewmember.

When you start turning and banking the plane, you will notice that the stall speed is no longer correct. The plane will stall at different AoA.

Re: Aoa VS airspeed

Thank you very much for the response. It just wasn't clear to me that speed is vital for lift but now this explanation raises another question.. You say that the critical AOA will result in a stall and you must reduce it (which I don't doubt at all). But then again, if lift = speed + AOA like you g...

Hello all. I have a burning question in my mind and would love to pull some knowledge from the ever so experienced folks on here.

Blacklisted IP

Anyone else having issues posting with a dynamic IP?

If you have bad luck and your ip was ever used by a spammer you are unable to post.

Maybe a better approach would be to whitelist accounts with more than xx posts that have existed for over x months?

Re: Putting my own fabric on my airplane without experience

As previously posted, or eluded to, this plane needs to be in Owner Maintenance for it to be worked on by someone other than an AME. Not true. If the owner can find an AME who trusts the owner's skills and the AME trusts him, the AME can sign off without ever touching the plane. If you are going to...

What I don't get is why everyone blames the complainers, instead of the system that blatantly encourages people like this, and favours one group over another. I agree with the first part of that statement. If a stupid law allows people to abuse it and gain some extra money, would you blame: A) the ...

Re: Ontario Road Trip

One of the few advantages of being a chief pilot in a mid size company, is that you can usually take the weekends off. At small operators (family run, few airplanes) the chief pilot will most likely operate like any other employee. I doubt anyone will just be sitting in an office on saturday though....

How difficult/expensive to maintain is a gravel strip? You need a snowblower for winterops and a grader for summer ops if it sees regular use. In spring you can see holes and bumps. But for the cost of all the gravel and installation, you are probably better off getting a grass strip and pay a guy ...
