Instructing

Hey folks, 2 questions. I applied to a few flight schools, far away from home. Im in Ontario and the FTU's are in BC and AB: 1. Are phone interviews normally acceptable or does it need to be in person. (Problem being, I don't have much money left to be flying around the country/renting cars/hotels a...

Re: Studying and working in Canada

Sorry amigo, but that is very unlikely to occur. There are many many experienced pilots without jobs right now in Canada. Stay in Europe where you can make it, as long as you save enough dinero for a type rating... (psst, it's not a nice thing to do here) I don't mean to sound like an ass, but I don...

Re: ...help please

Without going through technical stuff, the best way to do this is to draw it on a piece of paper. Imagine a given radial (radials are always FROM the VOR) In the above case, draw a cross and label each end N E S & W. Draw a little airplane north of the station (N). That would be your "N" on your OBS...

Instructing Overseas

Are there any opportunities for canadian flight instructors overseas? I have searched the net, but nothing. I know of China, but the main school in Beijing closed down due to lack of cash.

Any ideas?

Re: 1500 hrs plus

HORUNNER, 1500 hours is definitely in the realm of employable time. Having a "run in" with someone can be a total bummer. We've all had our moments. However, the real issue right now is, there are simply no jobs to be had. Flight schools and aviation colleges keep pumping out pilots, like so many p...

Re: Flight Instructor jobs pretty much dead in ON

Island Air has been in business for a long time. I know the owner, he's there 24/7 and they are always very busy with local and international students. The place next door is a different story.

Re: Flight Instructor jobs pretty much dead in ON

Canadian Flight Academy is based out of Oshawa as far as I know. The only schools at CYTZ are:

1.Island Air (unlikely to ever close down)

2.Canadian Flyers (very likely to close down)

Is Number 2 the one you are talking about bluenote?
