Re: Would you say working as an air traffic controller is a job or a career?

Go to the airport and look at the parking lots. First where the ATC folks park and then where the pilots park - a big part of your question will be answered. :P BAHAHA!! Funny... when I was wrapping up my MEI, I remember looking across the parking lot at the tower thinking: “there’s gold in them th...

Re: YWG process

I don't know if it has changed, but the YWG ACC is probably the absolute worst for IFR in Canada. Lot of cliques, OT shenanigans, etc. In 08-12 the checkout rate was below 5% and that only counted trainees that made it to the floor, not even the ones who were cease-trained in the course/sector-spec...

Re: Monitor Tower or call "Ready" at the hold short line

The proper phraseology is "ABC123 holding short of 35R on Bravo ready to depart in sequence with the traffic on final visual." Do you have a reference for that?

Hi all: It's been AGES since I chimed in on a forum and so this one is it because it seems interesting 'n' such. I've seen some reference to a 'national standard'.

Hi everyone, I have read on the always correct wikipedia that carrying a CFS satisfies the CAR 602.60(1)(b) requirements. 602.60 (1) No person shall conduct a take-off in a power-driven aircraft, other than an ultra-light aeroplane, unless the following operational and emergency equipment is carried...

Hi all: I'm working on a flight safety article and would like some input from everyone here. If you read CAR 602.31 you will read that IFR aircraft are to acknowledge instructions and readback clearances, and while this is similar for VFR aircraft, the requirement to readback a clearance is solely b...

Thanks for the replies! It would be interesting to know if most pilots KNOW what to do if the were given a red light on landing...

If there are two a/c on the ILS's (say 35L and 35R simultaneously), do they have to be separated 1000' vertically/staggered on the approaches?

I'm not personally collecting any payment - never have, and never will. There is an agreement in place between A and B... I just do the flying. My original post was merely to find out what you can collect as an aircraft owner... I still don't know what that is :lol:

Re: Renting out your airplane

There's no disconnect as there's no reason for there to be a connection. TC is concerned with whether you're operating a Commericial Air Service, a term defined in the CARs. Your insurance company is concerned with whether you're trying to make money with the airplane, which is a totally different ...
