Re: Luxury Tax

I can’t see a reason why spending my cash on an airplane or boat is worthy of extra tax, but not spending it on a cottage (or second cottage), or flash jewellery, or a collection of good wine, or a decent violin, for example. can't we spend it the way we want? No, as long as you have a penny left, ...

And if you haven't recieved any call back within 2 weeks from Jazz after the interview, you might be out of your luck. I got two friends move to porter an...

Re: Should I find a new instructor, or is this a normal first few lessons?

You’re a paying customer.
If you don’t feel comfortable with that instructor then go to management and explain why you don’t feel comfortable and if possible change instructor.
That instructor won’t change for you.

Thank you all, yes the exam results letter states that a letter of recommendation is required but does not mention more training is needed.
That’s entirely up to the person recommending you. He/she has to be satisfied you will be successful.

Re: Letter of Recommendation

I do not see any mention in TP12880 regarding letter of recommendation for re-write but maybe it follows the same logic as the flight test where you need to prove you received additional training... “A partial flight test must be conducted within 30 days of the original letter of recommendation.
