Re: Mount Royal University - Aviation diploma - int student

When I went to MRC I didn't have high school finished, but I went to the adult education school, and did the pre-requisite 5 grade 12 courses they required at the time. Talk to their admissions department. Back then you required Math, English, Social studies (basically history), Physics, and one oth...

Re: What's the situation like at YBW?

I was told the same thing by both SATC and CFC at Springbank - that the waitlist to start PPL instruction was a minimum of 6 months. I had no idea. I had been up for a "discvoery flight" in February, and thought that I'd be pretty much able to start logging hours as long as I was available when the...

Re: Air Transat...?

Honestly why an Airbus company ever got Boeings in the first place is more of a weird one than the question of why are they going to an all Airbus fleet. To me this is a smart decision, but what do I know?

Re: Class G Airspace

My guess is that you won't find many people here who've ever laid eyes on the DAH. All the different airspace classifications make reference to it but that's as far as most of us would ever look. Looking at the IFR chart for the area can be an easier read because all green areas are class G below 18...

Re: AC 737MAX passenger seats

Also the lavs are getting smaller and smaller. I don’t know how anyone above average in size even fits in there. The location of them at the very back of the galley also must be annoying for the FAs. I haven't been on one yet but I heard the FA's seat is inside the door swing of the lav, so basical...

Re: Pasco Callbacks

They said all they can handle for training is 4 pilots every 6 weeks for the Saab. So that's their plan for the foreseeable future. 2 captains, 2 FO's every 6 weeks. Hard to believe they'll be able to meet attrition rates never mind start up a 5 destination service in another province at that rate.

I did their interview. It took me the better part of a year to get it through repeated phone calls, emails, and one inside contact who sent a text on my behalf.

Re: ForeFlight...

As for Foreflight it's really the best thing since sliced bread. Far better than Flt plan, or Jepp. It has a feature called "Plates on Map" that's the cat's meow for situational awareness in the TCA and while manoeuvring for an IAP. Is that different from the way FltPlan Go and Garmin can display a...

Re: ForeFlight...

Every man women and child should have Fltplan Go on their phone as a backup in case all else fails. Its good for plates but the enroute portion kind of sucks or I cant figure out how to use it in Canada. It works with your phone in aeroplane mode as well which uses a lot less battery. As for Forefli...

It sounds like they are moving it toward what it should have been in the first place. Hopefully the next round goes smoother for people who are applying for the first time.

It sounds like they are moving the goal post...again.
