Re: North Wright Airways 2019/2020

I know a guy who is currently rotating out of Calgary and heard him say best job he ever had. I've never worked with this guy and don't know his flying history but have no reason to doubt what he said. I believe he is Left seat in the 1900.

Re: Is there really a shortage of aircraft mechanic in Canada?

Do you have the right to work in Canada? Decent job? Now thats a matter for debate. Yes be prepared to go out of the big cities, look at Thompson Man, Norman wells, Iqaluit, Red Lake . Could you survive a few years in these places? Doubtful that you'd earn enough as an apprentice to live in the big ...

It was in reference to the Coulson add. Razzing the HR department. As mentioned previously the HR people don't usually know an AME from a Cowboy so their adds are sometimes interesting to read.

A&P licence-----Aviation experience?

Can you get an A&P and not have any aviation experience? I know we used to joke and say the A&P was out of a Cracker Jack box but in reality with a M you need to prove experience and do a supervised task at an approved facility.

Re: EASA B1.1 to TC M2

Are you living in Canada? Go see your local TC inspector and deal with them. As stated you will need a Canadian log book for the task sign offs so I don't know if a B1 in an EASA shop or a A&P would sign off on this. Ask the TC person you are dealing with. On the other hand with your experience and ...

Re: Putting my own fabric on my airplane without experience

I wouldn't go into a job like this blind. Fabric work is a real skill. Where are you located? I think a guy in Red Deer does a course on fabric. Unless your friend has experience on this I'd slow down and make sure you're not wasting your time and money.

Re: AME Associations

Sometime in the distant past I read a report as to why AME's don't join their respective associations. Something to do with the make up and psyche of a typical AME and their aversion to joining. Maybe someone could find the report and post it? Personally I've joined a few times, usually to get a red...
