Re: Licence renewal time

Make a phone call to your regional TC office, or send an email. Usually that unclogs the drain and magically, I get my stuff within the week of the call/email. I usually include my license number, name and DOB, for identification purposes if by email.

Re: Flight Safety

For me at least, its available on flight bag forever and you get updates when they update the material. It depends on the manufacturer. For example, if you've been typed on a Cessna product, you'll have access to all the training manuals/flashcards for that type on Flightbag forever. However, if yo...

Flight Safety

Greetings all,

For anyone who's been to FS for a type rating, do you know if the study material on their online Flight Bag is accessible permanently or only for the duration of your course? Just curious to know if I can still access it in the future for refreshing or clearing things up.

Thanks

Re: IATRA (thoughts?)

It's a good approach, going for the IATRA after writing the CPL written and with the material still fresh in your head. There are still quite a bunch of new topics for the IATRA but nothing overly complicated. Study for it and get 'er done!

Re: YEG Flight training

No first hand information from any of those FTUs, but I do want to chip in my two cents. Just because a flight school or club only has 2 instructors and a couple of airplanes, doesn't mean that it's a poor choice. In fact, a slower, smaller school could get you done faster and you may learn more. Th...

Re: Did we reach the next phase of the pilot shortage?

Flying is expensive because of aviation fuel tax and airplane liabity insurance. Government thinks flying is for the rich, so tax the shit out of the fuel. Carbon tax too! Engine overhaul cost is $15/hr. Oil costs double or triple the automotive equivilant. 15w50 conventional auto oil is cheap. Air...

Re: Hours towards CPL (what counts?)

Yep, since I started training in Canada we always right down the ex. # in the remarks. I find it interesting that here the instructors don't sign and record their Lic# in my personal log book, but as I understand it keep a student log book at the club. Was that your exp as well?

Re: Did we reach the next phase of the pilot shortage?

Yup, pay would definitely go a long way in regards to work ethic, performance, and commitment time... among other factors. Unfortunately, many FTUs just don't have the budget to pay such beautiful salaries. Sure, some companies can afford to pay a couple guys an appropriate non-mcflip-the-burger sal...

Valid questions and concerns, so I will try to answer it: 1. Remember that a lot of airline pilots are in the training departments at their respective airlines or were instructors at one point in their careers. I can assure you that the value a student gets, EVEN FROM A PART TIME AIRLINE PILOT is a...

YES... where I work, we are working on strategies to keep the more experienced instructors (2's and experienced 3's) around at least a bit longer, but it's tough when so many just want to get the hours and leave, no matter what the incentive is to stay. Can't blame them, but I wish there was a bett...

Re: Be Deadly at Dead-Reckoning

My personal experience with students is the lack of TLAR ( That Looks About Right ) skills. TLAR, that is the ability to quickly evaluate the basics, course required, distance to fly, and ETE. It doesn’t matter wheather you are looking at a traditional pilotage nav plan sheet or the GPS screen, can...

Re: Zulu 3 repairs

The Zulus are about $200 less than Bose. I think Bose uses that extra for the “free” shipping. Face it, nothing is free. So with the Zulus, if you have two repairs, you are even with Bose. More than two, the headset is not a bargain and a piece of crap. One or less, you come out ahead. Yup, that's ...

When you have these regionals teaming up with all these FTUs to provide them with their first officers the pay will never go up until we say no to the job but that will never happen.

Also, let's not forget that any foreigner who completes their flight training in Canada (even if it's just an instructor rating, with CPL done at home*) has a clear path to residency via the 3-year post-graduation work permit. *See https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/...
