Re: Getting an aviation headset to work on a MacBook

I'm trying to figure out a way to get both the microphone and the earphones to work on a MacBook. I have found a DIY way of getting the earphones to work but not the microphone. Does anyone have any idea on a workaround? There are some boxes you can buy that are over $100 USD that I have looked at,...

Re: YUL Base

I’ve flown lots in Quebec over the last 15 years to many places there. I’ve always managed to get by with pretty much zero French. I never thought about google translate. They usually have English menus at most restaurants if you ask. The issue presents itself more if you relocate. Not so much if i...

Re: Renting out your privately registered aircraft

Being the name insured, I believe that I will also be able to rent out to those with a PPL or higher (likely those with a PPL building time towards their CPL will be interested) as long as I'm onboard. My idea is to just come along for the ride and get good at using foreflight, radio proficiency, a...

Re: YUL Base

Correct. Which is also not what I was saying. I said French is useful in a YUL base because of daily life. It doesn’t have any bearing on being awarded the base; that’s seniority only. I've heard Montreal is way more English compared to a place like Quebec City. So there's that too. But for sure it...

If they don’t apply for CEWS it means using their unique circumstances, they have sat down, run the math, and it doesn’t work.
What math? It's free money. The don't even need to make CPP/EI payments on it.
