Edmonton FIR towers

Hey all,

Does anyone know what the staffing level for towers in the Edmonton FIR are? Which towers have the highest turnover?

Thanks!

Re: Alberta taildragger

The Scout is definitely a cool plane, but yes it's a little out of my price range haha. I will definitely be getting an AME to do a pre-purchase before I put money down on anything. Been burnt on enough cars to have learnt my lesson about that! I've heard a little about issues with the wood spars be...

Re: Alberta taildragger

Most of the flying I've done has been in a C182 and a C180 on floats, so naturally I like Cessna aircraft very much. However the cost of owning a C180 is just too much, especially compared with something like a Citabria. A share in an aircraft would've been a viable option, however I move around a f...

Re: Alberta taildragger

My budget probably caps at around $50,000-$60,000. I know the SuperCub is pretty much a no-go, just daydreaming. I've heard lots of good things about the Citabria. Any advice would be appreciated. The more power the better. Being in Alberta, the majority of the fields I fly from are usually around t...

Re: Alberta taildragger

After reading the responses, all of which I appreciate, I'm a little bit torn. I am very serious about the idea of owning something like a Cub or Stinson etc and I'm very excited just to get a few hours on a taildragger before I jump in with both feet, but I hear what you're saying about waiting to ...

Alberta taildragger

Hey all; I'm looking around to buy a yet-to-be determined taildragger for rough and off-strip flying. Anyone know of anyone who actually offers tailwheel training in Alberta? Or, as my sinking feeling would suggest, you pretty much have to find someone to teach you on your own aircraft...? thanks Ro...

Staffing Levels...

Just wondering if anyone knows what the staffing levels are like for the tower in CYYJ and CYQQ... Are either understaffed or have difficulty keeping controllers?

Thanks!

Bidding for transfer out of your FIR

I was wondering if someone could give me some information on the process and what is involved when the opportunity arises to bid out of your current tower. I assume that there would be a minimum number of months/years that you have to work in your first tower before you can move, and when that point...

ATC study material

Does anyone know of any study material available that would be good to go through before attending a VFR course? Looking for something specific to ATC, not just 'the ground up' or anything like that.

thanks!

Questions on Nav Canada application process

Hey all, just a few questions. When Nav Canada makes an offer for training (after passing both interviews), will they offer you one placement in the next course or do you have a set amount of time to make the decision? Are you able to delay until the following course begins or if you turn down the f...
