Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Honest question, are there any good very low hour pilots or do you feel that you are always « babysitting »?

Re: Medical

Yeah, I could go for a CAT1 but as ATC I’d need to go every year (i think) so I have a 2 for ATC and 3 for PPL. I’m under 40 so I go every 24 months. I don't think you actually would. Read 404.04 carefully. The validity period of "a medical certificate" is spelled out in the Table (ATC 24 months). ...

Re: Medical

I always thought that if you have a CAT 1 and let it expire, it reverts to CAT 3 for the remaining CAT 3 validity period. That's what my CAME told me anyways. I asked about this and it matters to me, because I have a restriction on my medical that my CAT 3 is also only good for 1 year... I just hav...

You can definitely hold more than one medical at a time. I’ve had 2 and 3 for years now.

Re: Yul LNAV 06L

Re: Yul LNAV 06L

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate. Any chance we could relay this info to the airlines so that we as pilots get a document allowing us to shoot the lnav 06L and therefor avoid confusions and backlog? Cause unless we get that, the only info we get us to not do the approach. (We have no idea that yo...

Re: Yul LNAV 06L

You aren’t wrong, thing is we are allowed to do 3nm between the runways on LNAV minimums. The note is because usually we can reduce to using 2nm if you are flying LPV or LNAV/VNAV. Because of the current shitty runway configuration we are trying to maximize capacity so we’d prefer to put 3nm betwee...

Re: LPV approaches

Except for an Instrument Rating flight test, then they are considered a precision approach. For ATC only ILS are considered precision approaches. This affects spacing requirements on some occasions. We have a waiver now that means that LPV and LNAV/VNAV approaches can use the same separation standa...

Re: Regional Airline Pilot to IFR Controller, worth the switch?

ATC is not the best job in the world. Yes it is good pay but after doing the job for 5 years it becomes very mundane and boring. If you want to work long hours with very little job satisfaction then ATC is for you... I feel sad that you have not found ways after only 5 years to enjoy your job. I’ve...

Re: Military license to CPL

You can get an ATPL without having obtained a CPL first? I thought it was a requirement. So basically you need minimum 750h, MEIFR and the ATPL test and that’s it?

Re: Good FTU for instructing-Montreal/GTA

Dorval aviation seems to be more anglophone than the other schools in the greater Montreal area. Flying out of YUL has it's plus and minuses. Cornwall could be a good bet. Most schools in CYHU probably would require some level of French but your best bet would be to call/visit and find out. I flew o...

Re: Low timer insurance

Thanks for the reply. We'd be buying into an already existing partnership so I guess i'll see with them what the deal is. Ask your future partners to check with their existing insurer what it would take to get you added to the aircraft policy. The insurer will want details on you (licences, experie...

Re: Low timer insurance

That would be insurance rate for the whole group...up to 4 pilots (typically), beyond that its more of a club and different underwriting seems to apply. Rate is often (but not always) based on the least experienced pilot. You used to be able to negotiate somewhat and were definitely in a better pos...

Hey, I am possibly looking to purchase a share of a C172 or C177 (not RG). As a very low time PPL pilot (#60hrs) what should I expect to be paying for insurance? Can I even get insured?
