One usable approach = 600-2 OR 300-1 above lowest usable HAT and vis, whichever is greater.
I guess you have to check the airport NOTAM that at least one usable approach available during the ETA.

Re: Is this the new norm?

I guess the general consensus here is the group 1 realistically can be completed within 3 weeks give and take. I am not sure what kind of FTU operations out there but I need to find a FTU who can provide me a consistent training preferably not more than 2 instructors and can adhere to the 3 week gui...

Re: Is this the new norm?

As to the 152 idea by CWE; I don,t think he understood the original discussion was about instrument training when he suggested using it for a ppl. I have no idea about specific aircraft requiring certification for IFR, but I did believe that certain nav/comm requirements had to be met as well as pi...

If you can’t figure out prop from mixture the instructors aren’t the problem.
That was a figurative speech :lol: . Off course where I work, we say thrust levers not throttles.
152 is not an IFR certified.
I was flexible at the point of taking three weeks off but the weather was not.

Is this the new norm?

I am racing with the deadline (the INRAT expiration date sometime next year). Among the unfavorable factors such as taking time offs from my "day job" to fly, weather delays, the aircraft availability due to technical issues, etc.; I notice most students fly with a different instructor at every flig...

Re: Having trouble flaring?

I will have to stray the subject a bit.
Don't you find SR22, DA40, DA42, or PA44 flare a bit flat compared to C172?
I am nervous of the tail strike risk sometime.
How do you flare proof any landing? Thank You

Re: Should there be a "Rate My Flight Instructor". com website?

Perhaps we need to mention the flight schools too while we are at this topic. They are usually "enablers" or "disablers" on good or bad behaviors.

Re: How do you tame Redbird FMX?

Please do tell the ground portion experience. I start to think the IPC is not about the proficiency but learning the flight instructor style to pass then the 24 month countdown for the next one and so on. I heard rumor that some IPC renewals insisted people to do the step down instead of the CDA. Ho...

Re: How do you tame Redbird FMX?

Did you pass your IPC? The rudder pedals on the particular Redbird FMX here is actually working very well. I can observe the ball "swings" during the engine failure exercise. The examiners warn me that even if it will fly straight, he will fail someone for improper techniques (bank towards the opera...

Re: How do you tame Redbird FMX?

So what you are saying definitely that we can all use the autopilot during the IPC (yes, the one that is done every 2 year)since it's not for the initial qualification.

Perhaps folks who did their IPCs (yes, the one that is done every 2 year) with Redbird in CYCC can chime more info.
Thank You

Will the examiners let people use the autopilot?
At least one of the approaches has to be "hand flown", right?

Re: Where/how pick up an IFR clearance at an uncontrolled airport

I made a similar argument. I would rather pick up clearance via the phone. However, I heard some overzealous flight examiners asked those trick questions during the ground portion of an IFR flight test.
I just want to be prepared. Thank you for your help.

Re: Where/how pick up an IFR clearance at an uncontrolled airport

How do I pick up an IFR clearance from CYRP to CYUL if I am on the ground or once airborne?
Which frequency to contact?
CYRP is very tight as far as gazing through CYOW airspace.
Thank You.

Re: Where/how pick up an IFR clearance at an uncontrolled airport

If I take off VFR and pick it up in the air, what frequency will I tune in?
My best bet would be 127.7 128.175 135.15 (Montreal Area Control Centre). Thank You

Re: Best place for multi IFR training??

Where will that be if I have to "do an initial instrument rating elsewhere."?
I think beyond this point, I don't mind going out of province. I mean 11 months before the INRAT expiration and I'd rather avoid winter flying.
Thank You
