Re: Leaving a good paying secure job for aviation

Better a bird in hand..Its not only the financial sacrifice, there are living conditions and location. Also, does it mean family has to sacrifice because you not making as much as you did. Do you have to relocate family? Do kids need to start over with friends and school? I often dreamt of airline j...

Re: Where to begin

I did not know there were airlines where the FO is not allowed to fly at all, and I'm wondering how they achieve a "certain experience level" without it? Why are they even there? That's how the regulations work - even EASA allows for this. I have been asked to sign my FOs logbook as recently as las...

Re: St. Catharines Flying Club or Brampton Flight Center

Brampton flight club has a great reputation, deservedly so. However I hate flying in and out of that airport. I am alway getting cut off, people make incorrect location calls etc. Going fro CPL you should have ok decision making.

We get poverty wages at the regionals for 3-4 years and then a guaranteed interview and if successful another 4 years of embarrassing pay at the majors. You get it because you accept it. Fly elsewhere, look at a different career. Maybe the issues is you did not look far into the future or around co...

Its not a matter of being wimps. Why work outside for minimal pay when you can gain the same amount of money working inside. Its not about toughness. You get what you pay for. Plain and simple. Thats the same for any industry.

I think the biggest issue is age, If you are younger 20s mid 30s i think its a great option. As you get older, the impact of the surgery seems to lessen.

Re: Tips on crossing the US border when landing at a nearby airport

Just to be clear, you will need to contact a US agency to obtain your border crossing code when vfr. Canadian FIC's can't give it to you. Center or US FSS. I usually phone them. They will give it to you up to about 45 minutes prior to your estimated crossing time. Hmmmmmm, When i did my over flight...

I was overflying the US from Sherbrooke to Fredricton. No tower at Sherbrooke. On the ground called and filled our flight plan, they gave us our squawk code. Once in the air, It took 20-30mins inside US airspace to actually be able to contact ATC, we were never over 3000 ft,

Re: Thinking about becoming a pilot. Where do I start?

If money is a concern. Consider buying a 150. do your 200 hours or so for CPL. Than sell it. Yes you will lose a little money on resale. However you will save thousands over the course of your training.
