Sounds like you need to find a new school, or give up on flying.
Yeah, either they're hosing you and you need to look for a different school or you just shouldn't be flying. If it's the latter, they should tell you instead of leading you on and just burning through your money.

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Haven't flown AC in years but Delta suggests that you put on your belt while seated. I always do just for that reason. Common sense is not so common these days.

Re: Bose aviation headsets...pleased be advised:

There's lots of Bose X parts still available online. I've rebuilt several pairs over the last 6ish years with little difficulty in sourcing parts.

Looks like TSB released the report. Blames it mostly on no radio calls coming from the Cessna. Also looking to mandate flight recorders in GA aircraft. https://copanational.org/en/2019/05/02/tsb-releases-non-conclusive-report-on-carp-midair/?utm_source=wysija&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=eFlight-20...

Re: Stateside on route freq

I've listened to 122.2 and 122.8 in the US. 122.8 was the standard Unicom frequency for airports. Still used but seemed like the majority of calls were plane to plane. 122.2 was not as busy but seemed to be more positional reports than plane to plane calls. If not on flight following, I tend to tune...

Re: Maximum important headset advice!

I use the Bose X and A20s and the AKG AV100 headsets. The A20 and AV100 have bluetooth audio but all 3 have patch cables to pump in your own audio. I prefer the A20s. The AV100 is a decent headset but found them a bit "tinny" sounding. The A20s have a warmer sound but can be a bit fussy to get seale...

You also need a class 1 medical to write the CPL exam.
Quite true but the OP was inquiring about just the training so technically...
All that additional training will make them a solid PPL pilot if they can't get the class 1.

Re: Ratings in what order?

Do your night and IFR, the hours count towards your CPL and the hood time for your IFR automatically gets you OTT. May want to wait until the fall to start your night hours unless your a night owl. Just my $0.02 and mileage may vary.

If this year is like last, the fires in BC will put more of a damper on flying than the weather.

Re: Flying into USA

Given that you have to file EAPIS, call Customs before departing the US, and that you talk to ATC to cross the border, i'd be surprised if anyone ever got in any serious trouble because their filed flight plan didn't get activated. It happens often enough that they'd be spending a *lot* of time and...

Re: Whats your Shortest non stop flight?

CYQG to KDET. It's about 8NM as the birds fly. We use Coleman to clear customs and pick up fuel if it's less expensive. Doing the EAPIS, booking a customs appointment and opening the flight plan takes way longer than the flight.

Re: Don't Taxi Down the Road

The service roads there look pretty narrow. Barely wide enough for two cars to pass. Make for a really tight taxi in a 172 let alone a Malibu. How many larger airports don't have center lines painted on taxiways? That'd be my first dead giveaway. Maybe the STOP painted on the asphalt instead of hold...
