Re: about English test

I am going to jump in here and give some advice to those out there whom English is not your first language. Please SLOW down and annunciate your words instead of trying to machine-gun a clearance back to ATC. I would rather you take a little more time on the radio and be able to understand you inste...

Re: What kind of watch do you wear?

Wow! I'm blown away by the money you guys are spending on watches! I guess I'd better look for the cheap, oops, I mean thrifty pilot forum.... If it were me, I'd take the dough, by a cheap watch (since who uses one anyway, as has been said) and go find a Pitts somewhere to do some aerobatics in But...

Re: Bose ProFlight Series 2 or A20?

I have never used one in flight but the YYZ pilot shop has one you can demo hooked up to a sound environment for a PC12 and I think the other was a Boeing. I did not like them because the earbuds fit very poorly and kept falling out of my ears. Now they do have different size buds but the ones on de...

eAPIS/Flashpass

Do any US-bound flyers use the new Flashpass APP? Is it working well for you and is this a cost in addition to registering for eAPIS or is it the same thing but just APP based and I only need to sign up for the app? How does this compare to using the eAPIS subscription from fltplan.com at considerab...

Re: Manual costs

Ha! I thought I was being a bit vague.

Re: Questions for chief Pilot Interview

That is my plan actually. I was planning on using the questions as a study guide to go in depth. I am not planning on pursuing a CP position it is more just for my own education.

Questions for chief Pilot Interview

In light of the exam requirement being removed, it is my understanding that there is now just a personal interview where the questions are provided ahead of time.

Can someone provide me with those questions, please?

Thank you in advance!

Re: Flying to Montreal

Thanks.....ya that could work but CSN3 is gravel so staying away from that. Also it would only save maybe 15 minutes on the drive. Plus might be nice to get a hangar if weather is poopy. I think back to plan A, lol. Thanks for the input cheers!

Flying to Montreal

Hi I may be flying into Montreal (CYUL) mid March and then driving up to Piedmont from there. I was wondering if any locals could tell me if there is a IFR airport closer to Piedmont that might work better for a shorter drive?

Thanks in advance
