Re: PPL (on tailwheel) at Canadian Flight Centre

I counted down the height verbally from fifty feet to wheel contact, that really helped them get the picture...and I explained there they should be looking at each part of the approach, flare, hold off and touch down.. I'm no instructor, but I think Cat's comment is golden. I struggled with landing...

Boom - Supersonic Aircraft

I came across this company on LinkedIn ( http://boom.aero/ ). Anybody know anything about this company? I know nothing about aircraft manufacturing, but seems very aggressive to me that they will be flying a prototype next year, although there seems to be an experience "Team" behind it. Is this for ...

Re: Up front cash

so being s PPL, i don't have any insight into the realities of bonds, but it got me thinking about a business deal that I recently completed. Rather than paying the money to an employe, does anyone in the industry use a lawyer trust fund instead whereby the money is held in trust by a lawyer? that w...

Re: Has TC stopped publishing the Aviation Safety Letter?

NavCanada E-Cap

I just noticed that NavCanada is now selling the Cap and Cap Gen in electronic format, labeling it "E-Cap". In reading it seems that they are providing the Cap in PDF format, just as they did in Feb-Apr 2010 when they pooched the publication and had to then provide them electronically. I realize the...

I've been searching the CAR's, and all I could find was 605.18 listing the equipment required for IFR flight, but is there anything further required than that and a C of A?
