US Travel Ban

Looks like Biden is doubling down on Trump's travel ban and implementing mandatory quarantines upon arrival in the US. No word on how long or how it will be implemented. No news on whether it applies to flight crew or "essential workers." I'd expect the DHS to announce regulations in the n...

Re: Pre-departure COVID-19 testing and negative results to be required for all air travelers coming to Canada

There is no requirement to be tested or quarantine if you're a crew on an airplane, whether that's a Boeing 787 or a Cessna 172. CBSA may try to argue with you, but the OIC is pretty clear that a "crew member" as defined in the CARs is exempt.

Re: Foreign Airlines take CEWS

As much as I'm not a fan of corporate welfare, nearly 100% of this money would have been spent on EI. This is literally "EI" administered by the employee's company vs the federal government. It's a crying shame the Liberals are using this as an excuse for an "aid package." Sure f...

Re: ADSB diversity update?

The Skybeacon works on 978 and therefore has no installation and maintenance requirements in Canada beyond basic electrical system rules. The TailbeaconX is an ADS-B and Mode S transponder which falls under a whole pile of rules, all of which are currently being ignored while they fly around in Can...

Re: ADSB diversity update?

The problem with the TailbeaconX is that while uAvionix claims that it will soon be TSO and meets all the performance requirements for NavCanada / Aireon, it isn't yet compatible with any sort of legal installation in Canada. There are dozens of Canadian registered aircraft flying around with these...

Re: ADSB diversity update?

I believe the tail beacon X requires a dedicated panel controller like the Av20 or Av 30. So I would suggest more research. The L3 Lynx transponder is diversity capable at an upcharge of I believe only $ 1000 so it seems to be quite a bit less than GARMIN's units Personally and an opinion worth eve...

Re: ADSB diversity update?

If your plane is compatible once certified, the TailBeacon X is probably the most cost-effective option.

Re: Flight training still open during Ontario province-wide lockdown?

It comes down to who has the better lawyers. FTU’s (and airlines, banks, etc.) fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government and therefore the provincial regulations are inapplicable. See interjurisdictional immunity. Well, this is an overly-simplistic statement. Some elements of what FTUs ...

Get your AZ or DZ license. Plenty of truck driving jobs long hall or regional day trips. 7k investment. You may qualify for government funding. Starting pay could be as high as $35/hr. There is a truck driving shortage. The US is currently taking Canadian drivers with sponsorship and all. Great way...

Thanks for the replys. Seems like there is an STCd aftermarket replacement, but we'll likely skip this mod for now.

Re: AIREP & VOLMET // ACAS vs TCAS?

TCAS is a type of ACAS, however TCAS II v7.1 and v7.0 are the only systems that meets ACAS II standards required for flight in RVSM airspace.

There are many types of ACAS, but in general ACAS is the ICAO term for TCAS.

Re: JEPP Chart MSA

To add a little more, you'll occasionally see 100nm safe altitudes in the US, generally referred to as the "Emergency Safe Altitude." These are found primarily on military charts. (I've highlighted the EMERG SAFE ALT).

25 nm. The 100nm safe alt is a Canadian thing as another poster mentioned. If there is a 100nm safe alt (or some other alt), it will be annotated in the notes. As you can see in the lower left of the chart, this procedure was created under the FAA TERPS Order. If you really want to dig into what the...

Ram Horn Yokes on Older Cessna 172

I'm looking to replace the older style yokes on a Cessna 172 with the "newer" style ram horn yokes. I've heard of guys in the US having these changed out under field approval. Is this a realistic avenue in Canada, assuming factory yokes, tagged, from a retired Skyhawk? What sort of paperwo...

If the plane is registered to a Canadian corporation, the majority (I think 75% without CTA approval) of shareholders need to be Canadian Citizens.

Re: Canadian aircraft owned by foreign company

If you're here on a work visa (not PR), then you can essentially keep the plane here forever. If you're a citizen or PR, then you're suppose to only keep the plane in Canada for a certain number of days. In practice, this is unenforced based on the number of N registered planes in Canada, as well as...
