Re: Daily Rate For A Small Turbo-Prop

Just the standard 703 stuff. Self dispatch, flight planning, run to the airport.... Probably 8 to 10 hour days. $300 for standby / reserve cause I already have full time salaried employment. Just lots of free time between flying days. So basically, when on standby for a call out can still get on wit...

Daily Rate For A Small Turbo-Prop

Just trying to get an idea of the average daily rate for a small turbo-prop in Canada. Specifically, flying a Cheyenne / Conquest on a standby / on call basis.

I was thinking $300 / day for standby/reserve and $500 / day for flying.

Are these numbers reasonable? Never done freelance before.

Thanks.

Re: Compass Swings

Can somebody clarify what Transport considers 'Stabilized'? Mine is in a Challenger and it's the gyro type , vertically , mounted compass rose type. No liquid involved.... Is this a 'Stabilized' one?

Re: 604 Contract Pilots

Just a correction here.... Acass does not pay for pilot PPC's. The contractor him(her)self pays. Acass acts as a "broker" to get a preferential rate on a course but the cash comes from the pilot. Always has, always will.

Re: Secrets Pilots Won't Tell You - CNN

Disagree with the landing comment. Some of the most skilled guys I've been paired with occasionally have slammed one down. Also, the weakest guys out there occasionally pull-off one of those "Did we actually land yet" touchdowns. All depends on the circumstances of the day.

Re: IFR Alternate question

Turbo Props' explanation is most accurate. You wont encounter this in the big city but it's very prevalent in the Rockies and the Arctic mountainous regions where you commonly have 400, 500, & 600 foot minimums published.
