Re: Annual Inspection

I asked my AME the same thing. I was advised the same with a BUT.

BUT ADs are not treated as such. So if you extend your annual to the end of the month, but have a 12 month muffler AD, then you are over running your AD.

Re: Piper Cherokee Lands on Quebec Autoroute

Does anyone know what the aftermath of a highway landing is? Do you Toff again on the highway or is the plane disassembled and hauled off in a trailer? Also is there a fine for landing on a highway? I've landed twice on major highways in the prairies. Both due to engine failures. The first time was...

Re: In need of a 9/11 history lesson

I've been through so many of these now, I kinda just roll :roll: my eyes when I get told to get a seat and hold on. I think we need a new phrase. I've been told the music is stopping 4-5 times in my career thus far. The music doesn't stop, this is what aviation does; it rises and falls, rises and f...

Re: Digital logbook recommendations

How is CrewLounge PilotLog (Formerly MCCPilotLog) work for folks? is it worth the subscription fee's? It was a painful year of weekly updates, tickets, and issues. I think I can safely say that CrewLounge PilotLog is finally a good product once again. I've also been playing with CrewConnect as a Ro...

Re: Who here has been ramped by TC?

Not TC, but I was ramped by EASA in a 738. They checked our licenses, flipped through our documents, requested proof of EFB approval, requested proof of our noise certificate/approval, proof of maintenance release/airworthiness, had us find an applicable NOTAM for the airport we just landed at, had ...

Re: Useful things to do before the beginning of training

Definitely get on that Category 1 medical with an ECG and see if you're fit for the profession. You can locate an examiner below. If it is just for recreation, you will be looking at a Category 3 medical. Ref: https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/2/came-meac/s.aspx?lang=eng&l=124 You can also start ...

Re: External catheters

My relief system preference is the bag removed from a Tim Hortons 10 to Go box. The bag is large, durable, has a wide mouth, and the cap screws back on (100% leak proof). Guys use external, internal (no thank you), zip locks, Gatorade bottles, suran wrap (this one I have no idea how) and some glider...

For the pic cross country requirement, I meet the 100 PIC but an short for the additional 100 but have loads of copilot, been flying a dash-8 for 4 years. However my logbook doesn't have a column to log copilot cross country, only PIC or dual. Should I make a new column for this and go back and add...

Re: Ag spraying question

Used to fly skydivers and tow gliders where we would always fly with reduced fuel loads. Is it the same for agflights? Not really per say. Some have long range tanks and it is much safer to take only a couple hours of fuel. For the Air Tractor with standard tanks, typically most guys start relative...

Re: Getting a mortgage as a Pilot

Take that pre diem and save it for the down payment. The bank doesn't see it as income until it's locked into an RSP or is at least cash on hand. You and your partner can each take 30k out of rsp's under 1st time home buyer program, then save another 20k and you'll have the 20% (80K) for a 400k hom...

A hybrid system I guess you could say, with no ongoing costs. Probably if I was starting from now I'd take a look at MCCPilot or whatever it's called. Unfortunately, MCCPilotLog (now CrewLounge PilotLog) has moved towards a subscription based system. I was able to be grandfathered in with a lifetim...
