Re: okotoks flight school

Not going to bother.


Oh well I guess we can agree to end our brief attempt at discussing flying training, in my experience there is not much hope trying to open a closed mind.

All the best in your flying career...fly safe.

First the approach from two hundred feet above the landing to the flare point:: I use a definable point on the runway as the flare point, usually the first big h...

Either way, I can see that we won’t get a useful response out of you on how the FIG could be improved.

Re: okotoks flight school

By the way I do wheel landings almost exclusively in tail wheel airplanes except for one or two airplanes due to the visibility problem they have looking forward. My comment above was made to point out that I do mostly wheel landings because they are the most efficient, safe and easy method of land...

Re: Boeing Max.

Boeing has been a great builder of airplanes and will in the end recover from this situation they are in.

However the cost will be staggering.

It will be interesting to see what happens in their corporate structure because the share holders will be very concerned.

Re: okotoks flight school

Would you want to do it as a full time job? No. I retired after flying for a living for fifty one years, I made enough money to live very comfortably therefore I have no desire to work full time.

The pay in a FTU is aby...

Re: okotoks flight school

You're a retired pilot, why aren't you doing it? Because of the fact that in Canada you can not teach new pilots without having to hold a FTUOC. Under that system the pay is so low one can not even consider it. If we had the same rules as the FAA then any licensed instructor can teach anyone and th...

Re: okotoks flight school

In an ideal world, instructors would only be retired pilots who are highly experienced but that's not the case,
In a logical world that would be the way it is done.

How come it is not done?

Re: Pilot training

There is no minimum education level required to become a pilot.

I only have grade eight and learning to fly was no problem nor did it ever affect my employ ability.

Basically if you can read and write you have enough education to become a pilot.

Re: Airworthiness discrepancies.

What are the wrong circumstances?
A circumstance where you can hurt yourself.

I never got into a circumstance that hurt me or an aircraft, so maybe you can relate some for me.

But I have flown in every corner of the flight envelope and got paid to do it.

Re: Airworthiness discrepancies.

There is nothing ridiculous or inherently "dangerous" about being behind the power curve in CERTAIN called for situations
Exactly, being behind the power curve is not dangerous, unless you allow it to get out of control then in the wrong circumstances it can be dangerous.
