Re: Dear YKF flight instructors

Coming from working both as a Flight instructor and as a captain on a king air and other multi engine aircraft, SIMPLIFY CHECKLISTS! Flows are better because they teach efficiency and its easier for student to learn what will be expected out on the line working for carriers. Flows then checklists......

Re: the magic of a shirt and tie

We'll try this again. AvCanada keeps kicking me off every time I hit submit. If you're travelling for work, you're allowed certain things, that would be required to do your job... Including extra liquids, even something like a Swiss Army knife, if they believe you need it for work. At least it's a ...

Re: Caravan Opportunities in Canada

Thunder Air Operates a Caravan out of Timmins Ontario that does lots of Coastal milk runs
and then you also have a solid Van operator out of Fort Mack for Fort McMurray Aviation...They have 206 and 208's with some on floats...
Its could be a good starting point...

Good Luck

Re: Which ratings must be taught by an instructor

Just for the record guys I hope you remember, Does not mean because its LEGAL that it is SAFE! So although the CARs says often you need a minimum of this many hours for a certain rating its always better to be with someone who knows what they're doing. Too many differences between one person to the ...

Re: Which ratings must be taught by an instructor

I agree, I am an instructor... When it comes to a 'Class' Rating then the person providing training must hold a CPL and have 50hrs on class and 10h on type. There are no PIC requirements. here is the reference. I took the time to remove irrelevant info... Read through... Pay close attention to the I...
