Poor fence. What did it ever do to you pilots that made you want to harm it?

Re: High Blood Pressure

Excellent post. Basically it looks like I need a girl friend (boy friend? Modern times it's not nice to be picky about gender) that likes long walks?

Preferably around 25 with an airplane.

Re: Sault and Confederation Applicants. Check here.

What happened to criminology? Do that and get your fancy flying license at a less expensive school and you're golden.

AirCanada doesn't care what degree you have. It could be in anything.

Re: okotoks flight school

Maybe because people start flying before they have a radio license, then they build hours being number 6 for take off, getting used to controllers, flying in traffic etc.

Things are a bit different compared to the good old days, learning nordo off a big grass circle.

Re: Flying Through YYC Class C Question

Unless it's very quiet, expect terminal to take the easy way out and take you way North or way South. I can fly right over the top of LAX in Class B airspace but heaven forbid I try to transit YYC's Class C! (I know controllers are trying their best, it's the system that's broken) I laughed.

So, the younger guy was merely detained for questioning being with the other guy who did not metabolize the wine he had with dinner the night before. Then the media decides it can get more attention claiming they were both liquored up. Hang 'em high. No solidarity for your fellow pilots. Just panic....

Re: High Blood Pressure

I guess I'll admit. The 8mg Coversyl + seems to be doing the trick.

Only noticeable downside is I overheat pretty quick. Maybe I'll be ready for winter.

I'm annoyed that my MD said out loud, "Yay, the trial and error worked." :|

Re: Arthritis

You can ask your TC Doctor. I suspect it's the same as blood pressure medication. Transport Canada doesn't have a policy on it. The FAA requires you take a week to make sure you are stabilized on a new prescription, but transport has no information available, My mom used to get cortisone shots and h...

Re: Flying Through YYC Class C Question

Don't be timid but don't goof around either. Hold your altitude and heading. It's important that you are not off lolly gagging in the wrong place. You're on radar so they know if you can't go where you are supposed to be going. If they say, "Fly a heading of 170 at 5000 feet." You say, "Gxxx fly 170...

I'm in favour of more options even if I'm happy where I go on occasion. I am curious about this still. Do they do casual stuff or just the lincense programs? Is there extra planes available for rental? Here's a link with phone number in case anyone is looking for contact info. https://flyokotoks.ca

It’s more than big enough to do touch and goes on, assuming the land developers haven’t put up another flag pole or light post up again at he end of the runway. As long as you don't touch down half way down the runway and slow down too much, but I guess that applies to a lot of runways. Uh, yeah. I...

Re: Getting back into flying - Canadian licence in USA?

Maybe I am reading the whole thing wrong.

If I had a certificate allowing me to fly on the basis of my Canadian PPL and have not flown in nine years it won't be valid. Therefore I can't use the FAA certificate.

Re: Getting back into flying - Canadian licence in USA?

There has been two ways for Canadians to get paper permitting them to fly N registered planes for decades. A) The one "on the bases of your Canadian license." And B) A stand alone FAA certificate that Photofly is talking about. If you have a stand alone you don't need a Canadian license unless you f...
