Very friendly people.. I was willing to travel over 1 hour to get there. I used to come all the way from Brockville. Very clear and understood lessons.

Then they brake their promise and keep making the pilot work on the ramp longer. Just wondering, Im not looking for a new ramp job....this is just to help others My question...

One time in college . The temp was -15. I decided to freeze his whole car at night. The next morning, he had a hard time to get into his car, and scrape off the ice so he could see out the window.. great prank, it doesnt do any damage to the car, just frustraes the victim.

Its guys like you who make a bad name for male pilots.
The pick up line, "hi... my name is _______. Im a pilot, would you like to have a drink." Doesnt work anymore because most male pilots are jerks.

But sometimes ladies, you will find a nice pilot out there.

Yellowknife

I live in Yellowknife and want to rent a plane. With all the pilots in the area, why doesnt a company or two start flying lessons to the public or start renting out an aircraft. It may increase insurance, but im sure they'll still make money when they arent flying charters. I just want to fly in yel...

Under a Year on Ramp

Is there a company in Canada that is hiring pilots under 300 hours on the ramp that will lead to a flying pos. in less than/or close to a year.
Right now most I've heard are 2-3 year waits.
