Re: Advice for a 30 year old

Do you "WannaBushPilot"? If so then having a degree isn't going to hold you back. Hard work and being a good person is what will set you apart in the bush world. I can't speak for the airlines but I hear having a degree can help set people apart, but again I'm not in that side of the industry. I wo...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Maybe they got it mixed up with turboprops which can have detrimental damage if spun backwards

Re: International student need help

Nonsense. Modular course is fine for a student visa. Adam If you could provide the info on that I’m sure it would be helpful👍🏻 As from my research to get a student visa you need to be enrolled into an approved program, which the school also needs to be recognized for. I was told that any flight tra...

Re: Cornwall aviation or elsewhere?

Pretty sure all you need for the ifr upgrade is just a flight test on a twin so you can skip the ifr training and just do the multi training (Cornwall can get u done at 5-6hours) then the ifr flight test. Although to do the test u need a recommendation so that will probably require some training...

Re: Flight training cost

The crazy part is that they actually have buisness. I considered going there for an instructor rating just because their class 1 was available. They were short on instructors and offered me a job after training completion which seemed great but that was completely thrown out the window once i found ...

Re: Bonds

Nobody gripes about having to get their own CPL or IR to start a job. I can't believe I'm going to get into this, lord have mercy... A CPL and IFR are basic requirements universal to all 703/4/5 jobs. It's like requiring a degree in programing to work at Microsoft. It's expected. A type rating is c...

Re: Ratings in what order?

Did the officer give you a CAR reference? Just because you put it in the PTR doesn't mean it is supervised. The PTR is your property, not the instructor's property. Some students prefer to put all their flights in the PTR up to the CPL, so they don't have to submit logbook copies or send their logb...

Re: Ratings in what order?

True, as long as he realizes that he will have to do at least part of the CPL syllabus as his instructor will have to have confidence in him for the 300, and then will have to sign him out solo specifically for that purpose. Not required. He has a ppl, rents or buys a plane and flies 300 NM. No ins...
