Re: C172 flips over on landing

Could be an intentional swerve and loss of control or possibly in a panic stop not applying equal pressure on the brakes. This is of course nothing but conjecture.

In your case, why not just check if the instructor signed of the PTR? If so, you are in the clear.

Or do you happen to be the instructor as well?
I'm not the instructor. The flights were done at another FTU. The flights weren't entered in the PTR, so there's no sign off by an instructor.

But the AP is the person with the responsibility to check the form is correctly completed, and it is on the Applicant’s honour - they sign the form - that the requirements are met. The AP is responsible for making sure that the requirements are met. It says so in the AP manual. So if you TELL me up...

Note that you would have to do your biennial renewal flight test in a multi, so you must be both multi- and IFR-proficient. Major $$$ if you're not doing it every day.
True but you also have the option to renew in an approved FTD if you can find one. Slightly less $.

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

Dredging this up again. I had a conversation with another TC inspector that I happened to run into. The answer: no, the time doesn't count unless it was authorized by an instructor. So, to sum up: - the time counts - it doesn't count - it depends on whether you can get an instructor to sign off on t...

Right... you don't obtain more lift in a headwind than a tailwind. There's going to be a difference. It may be minimal, but there will be a difference in power setting and attitude of the aircraft in opposite directions.
What would be the reason for a difference based on direction?

Re: 50 hours and no solo

My understanding on the St Catherine's case, is notwithstanding the other facts of the accident flight, the flight itself was illegal under the Cars. Did TC take, in your view, appropriate action against the OC holder? Which of the CARs was violated? I don't know what action was taken. Is there a r...

Re: 50 hours and no solo

The same argument applies to scummy flight schools, who pressure pre-ppl students into expensive and dangerous "experience" flights in inappropriate conditions with substandard supervision. They should lose their OC for good. Most of you disagree. Fine. Yet most of you want scummy 705's to lose the...

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

Transport Canada has come back with an answer ...

*drumroll*

... it depends on whether the instructor who signs off the PTR is willing to accept these fights as legitimate entries. So, basically a non-answer.

Sigh.

What possibly could be the justification for needing anyone to "supervise" it. You're out of radio range so how would it even be supervised? Sorry Mr. Beef, I missed this post. Supervision doesn't mean you're listening on radio and monitoring every move the student is making. It's more about making...

I know someone who recently completed their instructor rating for $6400 in total from start to finish all costs in. This was freelance with block time on a Cessna 150. At Spectrum, the airplane dual itself costs at least $5500. Throw on the Private Career College Fee and you're at $5900. I'll give ...

Good points. Once again there is no argument that the flights were done. I don’t think this is someone who invented some bogus time and is trying to get away with it. The only question is whether they need a sign out by an instructor. I noted the difference, as photofly points out, in the wording of...

If there is a matching entry in the aircraft journey logs then the flight is genuine.
Agreed. There isn't a question of whether the flight happened. The issue is whether it was properly authorized as a solo training flight.

Or freelance, start the same day possibly, finish in less than 8 weeks and pay 60% of the cost of a flight school. This is a for a full instructor rating. Sounds great.
