Re: Design your ideal flight test

Quantitative tasks and skills that I would like to see: Hand-flown ILS down to CAT II minima (100 AGL) at night with auto-pilot off. If multi-engine, one engine must be at zero thrust. Tolerance: 1/2 scale deflection. While I strongly agree with all the other requirements listed (especially cross-w...

Re: Zulu for Pilots is back online - Interactive NOTAM websi

That is definitely a bookmark in my browser. Thank you for great work!
As a suggestion, maybe explore an option for Route NOTAM point to point?

Re: RVOP/LVOP

When I look at minimums I try to think of three things: 1. Aerodrome minimums 2. Pilot minimums 3. Aircraft minimums In order to use a certain minimum all three things above have to match the desired minimum. If we are talking about a general aviation pilot with no specific training as per CAR 602.1...

Re: Aerodrome Operating Visibility

Nice. more information! Thank you. I did not see the AIM section on RVA.
Can you point me to the document where it says what RVA can be used for? So far I have only found that it can be used to overrule the approach ban that is imposed by ground observed visibility. Its other uses are murky...

Re: Aerodrome Operating Visibility

It refers to a runway of intended 'approach'. Besides, for departure, you (PIC) would already be on the ground observing your own visibility. You don't need another pilot telling you what the vis is do you? In the absence of RVR (Runway Visual Range), or a METAR reported visibility, I'll determine ...

Re: Aerodrome Operating Visibility

I've never heard of such a report, unless it's referring to the report from an instrument rated pilot holding short for an arrival- they can give a visibility in the absence of other standard means. 602.131 (1) When no reading from RVR “A” or RVR “B” for the runway of intended approach is available...

Re: Aerodrome Operating Visibility

Thank you, guys. That is how I interpret it as well. However, TC has a different view on it apparently... In their view a Runway Visibility Report overrides the METAR visibility as mentioned in the FAQ they provide to LVOP/RVOP. No one at the TC offices that I have called had been able to answer tha...

Re: YWG ACC and Tower tour

All you have to do is call the shift manager at 204-983-8338 and tell them you would like to come to the ACC for a tour. They will let you know when a good time would be.

YWG ACC and Tower tour

I live and work in Winnipeg and always wanted to get a tour of those places to see how you guys work. Not out of pure curiosity, but I think it will be easier to operate in IFR environment properly once one knows what goes on behind the scenes. Is there a way for to get a tour of Tower and ACC in Wi...

If you'd like. But while we're at it, lets also make it for ATPL requirements to have 2 crew xp and over 12,500. So no sympathy can be equally spread to those instructors and most bush guys.... Let's do it. I am all for increasing the standards and improving the quality of personnel. As it stands r...
