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

They have at least 4 instructors, probably more and the planes always seemed pretty booked!

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: "Mandatory IFR Route" inlcudes a mystery waypoint

I was thoroughly confused when flight planning an IFR flight to St Hubert (CYHU) from the east. The mandatory routing includes ...VIKBU SILVI GORUX OMBRE MAIRE. I could not see GORUX on the LO6 chart. Silvi and Ombre are only 16 miles apart. Gorux does not appear in any plate for CYHU. I assumed it...

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...

Re: Low timer insurance

Thanks! Typically, say there are 3 partners with varied experience, is the insurance rate per pilot or for the whole group on one aircraft?

Low timer insurance

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? Obviously when the discussions get further i'll contact a broker but was just curious in the meantime! Thanks in a...

Re: Frustrations of a Military ATC and the Big Leap

Contrary to what Lotro has said, I think there is a fast track option for military ATC controllers...I've met a few military controllers who has received an offer from Nav Canada to skip the entire application process and to receive a conversion course/OJT. Not only that but they would receive simi...

Re: English Vs French on the Radio.

Interesting discussion on both sides - not sure which side I agree with at this point. Just a real world example from a few years ago.... Flying into CYQB (or was it CYOW...can't recall) and listening to the controller talk to another guy in French and me in English. Got clearance to land and in th...

Re: English Vs French on the Radio.

Geee, thanks for quoting me and starting a bonfire. I've read enough of your posts here and there to not get into an argument with you, you're clearly more knowledgeable on what is safer and better for us. So thanks! I'll make sure the whole VFR GA population that doesn't speak English in Quebec (an...

Re: YUL vectors

No worries skyhighh! When I say normal traffic flow and 6000ft abeam the field it's just the way the STAR is made, our procedures and airspace make it so at the 9000FT BLO restriction on the STAR you should be given 6000 and 5nm further descent to 3000'. In a normal world this brings the aircraft ab...
