Re: Curious on the IFR flight test questions

Thank you for your pointer there. A different flight examiner asked me all sort of ASDA, take off distance, landing distance, etc. during my multi test 2 weeks ago. So, the flight examiner will typically not ask about the cold temperature corrections and onward from the CAPGEN? ....which brings me t...

Re: Curious on the IFR flight test questions

Probably not an emergency since I still have HSI, ILS, and DME which are totally independent of the GPS. I just have to disengage the "slave mode". I overheard someone said something about the flight examiner asked for the emergency procedures in case of GPS malfunction en route. I just need firm an...

Curious on the IFR flight test questions

A full disclaimer: ***I am trying to get my mindset in the IFR flight test.*** Perhaps people who have done it before can provide any useful feedback. What are the typical flight planning (ground items) tricky questions that flight examiners will ask? (aside from the weight and balance, take off dis...

Re: Questions for certain freelance instructors

I am still curious though how they can afford the maintenance of those multi engine IFR aircrafts. They must have written off things or two deductions with CRA. Most FTUs are barely able to keep up their PA34/PA44 maintenance. Yet, these people can offer descent MEIFR trainings with well maintained ...

Re: Questions for certain freelance instructors

Without naming names, I met several freelance instructors who owned and trained with their multi engines. The premises are better experiences and cheaper. I must say their multi engine aircrafts look very clean and well maintained. Off course I wouldn't ask the aforementioned question in person. Hen...

Questions for certain freelance instructors

For those freelance instructors who own their own aircrafts and use them to train students (aside from personal usages), how do you deal with CRA such as what to write off, how much to write off, etc.? Since information can be very sensitive, please feel free to PM. :smt014 Thank you for the insight...

Yet another exasperating topic....

Folks,
Has anyone done any training with Sea Land Air Flight Centre at CZBB?
Got any feedback?
I am looking for a multi engine IFR training here.
I am not an international student.

Re: Harder or easier (INRAT vs. the CPL written exam)

When you said harder, which parts/sections were harder?
Or more like, which parts/sections do I have to pay special attention?
I maybe strong in the navigation (VOR,ADF, etc.) and math (distance, speed, fuel consumption, etc.) but lousy on the theory.
Spokes wrote:CPL definitely harder. INRAT was a breeze.

Harder or easier (INRAT vs. the CPL written exam)

Folks,
I passed the INRAT. It wasn't that bad.
Is the CPL written exam harder?

Re: RMI questions on INRAT

I think it's luck of the draw as far as questions. I knew of someone who got all HSI questions and no GPS. Which LO chart region did you get as far as questions? It will be sad if I fail the GPS parts when I work on the majority of GPS database interfaces. I just wrote the INRAT a few weeks back, an...
