Re: Like The New Look

I miss the "read unread threads" link. Maybe I just haven't found it yet. Top left of the page, left of ‘FAQ’ is the hamburger button, ‘unanswered topics’, ‘active topics’, and ‘unread topics’ etc, are located there. Slightly annoying thing is that if you’re reading on an iPhone, when cli...

Sharper Edge ATPL

Hi,

Looking for some feedback on the Sharper Edge ATPL (2019) prep guide. Helped you pass, or a waste of money?


Thanks

Re: Glasses with "digital block"

I got a pair of these lenses from my optometrist about 16 months ago. They weren’t cheap, but anything prescription rarely is! As to your question: no I do not notice any problems viewing displays in the cockpit like what happens with polarized lenses. The only noticeable effect is that everything t...

Re: How do you guarantee finding that airport

Find a decent enough of a spot to put it down, go get fuel, try again another day.

Re: Air Canada and Westjet...what a joke

You are flying to say Dubai, or maybe Shanghai. Long flight, fatiguing. Weathers not the best, conditions a bit tricky and you roll off the side of the runway into the grass. You know who doesn’t care about your “constitutional” right to get high? Authorities anywhere else in the world except perha...

Re: Air Canada and Westjet...what a joke

Policies are now being released for hospitals and they are not implementing any sort of ban. It's simply "do it on your own time, off the property, be fit for work and there's no problems". Perhaps these medical professionals have a better idea of the true effects of cannabis vs. The old ...

Re: Cannabis Policy ???

I believe the letter used the phrase “obtain a medical” and not “invalidates a medical”. Splitting hairs? Perhaps.

Re: Good Hands n’ Feet vs. Operational Experience

What’s going to save your butt? 900hr flight instructor with super hands and feet? Or 900 Navajo captain who isn’t very coordinated, but experienced with storms, icing, wind shear, and crosswinds? 900hr captain has way better hands and feet than an instructor limited to 15kt crosswinds and 5000ft c...

Re: Handling of power on take off and landing.

When flying taildraggers, floatplanes, and light twins I’m generally hovering around the throttles till 500-1000’ AGL on departure, and never do both hands touch the yoke/stick. When flying two crew, SOPs have dictated that at V1 both hands go to the yoke for rotation, and on approach one hand on th...

Transport Canada does not have a "zero tolerance" policy for cannabis. That would be absurd. And would fail a Charter test.
My point exactly.

To all the pot smokers who say that one last week is no biggie. Talk to your medical examiner. If you test positive you are in for a world of hurt. No rationalization is going to help. Again. Dont believe me. Talk to your medical examiner about what will happen if you test positive. It must be a gr...
