Re: Pakistan Airlines crash near Karachi airport May 22 2020

CNN now reporting 1 in 3 pilots in Pakistan have fake licenses according to Pakistan's Aviation Minister. PIA should be immediately banned from Canadian and international airspace based on this revelation, until they can prove otherwise.Their entire operating certificate is void.Hello Minister Garn...

Re: Engine Oil Mysteriously Increased

I will admit that I have no knowledge of this and if this is even possible, but does the oil cooler have a thermostat? If so, is it possible that some oil was in the cooler when you checked it the first time but not the second time? Usually the cooler will take the oil in. Check your hp fuel pump i...

Re: Hospital flight path restrictions

It depends which pad and where the building is to be located. Usually they'll just put out a notam for the crane and amend the listing and/or design of the pad(not physical pad but FATO).

Let us know where.

Re: Having both M1 and M2

So having an m1 and m2 will give you rights to sign for E and S. The AMO has to give you signing rights for this. Most major AMOS will not give you unless you prove competence in avionics or structures. I heard of smaller Amos doing it as there’s next to no licenced people there. This gets a little...

Re: Language as a tool...

Let's also not forget the ubiquitous use of Americanisms such as "CFI" for "Certified Flight Instructor" - in Canada, pilots receive a LICENCE with added RATINGS, not certificates. CFI is just short for CFIR. R for rating. I will accept either but always assume you're talking about Canadian ratings...

Re: Fixed wing to chopper

CAR 421.31 for license requirements and credited hours. It's not cheap, anywhere. MIN 40gs probably for a conversion and you cannot rent helicopters in Canada.

Re: Fixed wing to heli

What type of flying are you looking at doing? Any previous IFR time will be great if you decide to look at offshore or Air ambulance, but keep in mind that you wont have the minimum helicopter hours for alot of jobs. You would have a great in at somewhere like Helijet though as an FO, but I wouldn'...

Re: Flight training with masks?

Wear your contacts and a disposable surgical mask that is the right size for your slightly larger than normal head. Most pilots are tipping in at hat sizes much greater than that.

I think a certain amount of realism is in order here: “Dear US owner, I want to buy your airplane but I demand a contract of sale that let’s me fly your plane to a foreign country and strip it down for inspection before I decide whether I’m going to keep it or not, and whether or not you get paid f...

Re: Private aircraft import

You can make a sale contract that stipulates importation success or have them fly it to you first. Might not be worth it on a Cherokee but anything is possible if you throw enough money at it.

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

I will admit, that I lost objectiveness on this one. I failed to properly assess all of the factors and became more focused on the actual piloting of the aircraft. Most of us know that an accident isn't caused by just one thing, it's a chain of events that do. Removing a link in that chain can preve...

Re: RCAF Cyclone Down

The Cyclones are now back in service, the investigative team has determined that the crash was caused by the flight director being coupled for the manoeuvre which didn't allow the pilot inputs to be escalated in the system. You would think that manual inputs would be enough but the system design pre...

Re: Working while on CEWS

Your company most likely has it written in their policy that you cannot work for anyone else while employed by them. In this case, you are technically still employed by them.

Just call your HR and see what they say.
