Re: WAAS GPS question

I'm not sure about the sentry, but I think the selling point of the badelf pro+ is that it also receives GLONASS (Russian GPS), which can make getting a fix faster and easier in certain areas. Your best bet for aviation is likely to buy (or build) a Stratux, which when equipped, can feed attitude an...

Re: Whats the deal with Class E control zones?

I have flown into a variety of uncontrolled airports and controlled ones. But the controlled ones were all class C. They had a tower and I had to be cleared to do everything. I'm set to fly into an airport with a Class E control zone, that also has an MF. So I'm kind of confused. Is it uncontrolled...

Re: FAA Part #s

There's no direct comparison, but this is pretty close: CAR 702 (Air work) can be conducted under Part 91. CAR 703 (Air Taxi) and CAR 704 (Commuter) are generally conducted under Part 135, and certain subparts. Some CAR 704 operations here would need to be operated under Part 121 in the USA. CAR 705...

Generally records under 18 are sealed, save for some indictable offenses. You will be fine.

Re: Working while on CEWS

You're not on CEWS, the company is. It's a subsidy for the business not the individual. There are no restrictions on working. As far as you're concerned, you're receiving a paycheck from the company.

Re: Piper Seneca in high altitudes?

The RV-10 is known to have mach issues, especially with bigger engines, at high altitudes. It wouldn't surprise me if it could happen to other piston aircraft, which generally don't fly that fast.

If we were only allowed to have this. https://www.uavionix.com.au/news/skyecho2-portable-adsb-inout-now-approved-in-australia/ I'm genuinely shocked CASA approved that.

Re: Seneca or Confederation College

I wouldn't even consider the Jazz program being a deciding factor with the state of the industry. They have to recall everyone laid off before they can start hiring, and that could be years. It will probably go back to 1 or 2 college grads per year being hired, instead of the free-for-all its been a...

Re: ADS-B equipment

I was going to equip the skybeacon 978 on my friends 172, but I think I'll wait for the tailbeacon X now. more expensive and you need to buy a control head, but it seems to be the most logical solution and should work in Canada. You also get a brand new mode S transponder as part of the package and ...

Gliem is the best study tool. The ATP-CTP course is a completion, not a test so nothing to study for it.

Re: Airplane stuck in the states

molsonb So, now it’s down to duties and taxes. The importation of your aircraft. With your paperwork in order you should be good to go. Before that though, you’ll have to convince US Customs before you board a flight to America that your entry into the States is ‘essential’. Be sceptical before you...

Pay someone to fly it back. They won't be legally required to quarantine, but you might have to.
