Re: TC Medical Processing Times

Curious to know if anyone has any insight in how long it is taking TC to process medicals. Prior to Covid there was a significant backlog of files to review. At present if one has had their medical suspended and is ready to return, how long is the wait? My medical was suspended in November 2019. Th...

Re: New landing fees at CYTZ

For those who are interested: Effective 1 Feb 2021... Source? Is there a webpage outlining this somewhere? There is, but you have to get past the tiger in the basement first: https://www.portstoronto.com/airport/business-information/for-pilots/landing-fees.aspx https://www.portstoronto.com/getattac...

Thanks, I learned something today.
Don’t feel too bad about it... from the sounds of the article that telex posted, there were some Delta L1011 pilots who didn’t know it was a thing either!

Re: Metro Maintenance

Maintenance costs are about double your pilot costs. So if you can get your pilots to work for $1/hr, your maintenance will be cheap!

Ah, no. A day time turn of13.5 hours of duty is something I can do without running off a runway due to fatigue. You might be different, in which case feel free to conduct yourself accordingly. I had no problems with the previous fatigue regs. Must be nice to be closer to machine than human. Serious...

Re: Landing fee at CYOS

Now I'm curious how many pilots would be willing to buy and operate a small town airport with their own money. Prediction: Crickets. Crickets, and most other invertebrates (other than perhaps ACPA leadership) lack the cash flow, ambition, organization, and leadership to operate an airport. Although...

Re: Aztec E

IIRC, the E model was the first to get the longer nose, and also the first to switch to a 28 volt electrical system. The D model and earlier used 14 volts of electrickery. I did some multi-training on the E. If I remember correctly, it is a poor design because the loss of the engine with the hydrau...

Re: How much is too much?

Ask yourself if you are getting training value out of each flight. If the answer is no, then it is too much. If you are able to prepare for each flight, make a plan for what you want/need to practice, and get the right value from each trip! If you just want to go sightseeing, that’s fine too — it’s ...

I have to admit, when I first read the title of this thread, I thought it was referring to a final walk around before each flight, tugging on doors and fuel caps, making sure all was secure and nobody smashed your aeroplane while you weren’t looking. I know some people refer to this as a “CIRCLE JER...
