Re: Medical

I got my Cat 1 Medical done around January 25th, 2019. I believe that means it expires Feb 1st of next year. I also automatically had my Cat 3 medical renewed by the examiner when I did my Cat 1. If I go past Feb 1st, 2020 without having redone my Cat 1, do I need to do everything the Cat 1 require...

Re: "Currently"

Time is required as part of a VFR position report in CAP413, the AIM and the CFS, all of which are more formally correct than the Navcanada booklet... you choose. I’ve given (by necessity) many many position reports ”late”, both VFR and IFR. I don’t say “currently”, or “present time” on CFA frequenc...

Re: "Currently"

... "Present time" as a form of words isn't in the CFS; an element of a position report is "time over" - so you're going to have to find a form of words if the time over is "now". You could equally well say "currently". Or "now". Or maybe you should always use the time, and never say "now" or "curr...

Re: "Currently"

Do you also use currently to indicate the current altitude you are at versues the altitude where you will be at in an hour? More or less: "Golf Foxtrot Echo Lima passing 3700 climbing 6000". I haven't found a single situation that warrants the use of "currently" in any radio transmission. But pleas...

Re: Family sueing Air Saguenay

In a civil suit, the standard the plaintiff has to reach is very low: only “more likely than not”. What alternatives are more likely than pilot error?

The parties will settle out of court for quite a lot of money and no admission of liability, at the direction of the insurers.

What's the end goal? Better pilots? Or people who are better at checking off items on a list?
The end goal is people who meet the requirements listed in the regulations; there's no other fair way of doing it.

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

However, upon reviewing my file he said he couldn't sign off because one of my landings was a T&G and their SOPs for the CPL x/c say they have to be full stop. My interpretation of the CARs was that it didn't matter, and I sent it off to TC without it being signed by an AP, and it was all fine. You...

Re: ILS question

Fair enough, I didn't realize that flying an ILS won't keep you legal on the minimums on some loc only approaches. If I were flying a loc only, I'd still fly it CDA. Sometimes CDA data isn't shown on the plate it's typically because a CDA approach would be steeper than 3 degrees; would you calculat...

Re: ILS question

Because you want to fly a CDA approach when cleared for a LOC. For instance at CYKF, the LOC RWY 26 has CDA data that matches the ILS RWY 26.

Re: ILS question

If your clearance is localizer 18 circle 36, that's very different than ILS 18 circle 36. Likely has different step-down attitudes making it a pain in the ass. Can you find any approach where flying the ILS glideslope down to LOC minimums would violate the LOC approach to the same runway? It's hard...

Re: ILS question

Not withstanding the communique from NavCanada, as of today, CYHM is still showing circling minima on the joint ILS or NDB RWY 12 (GNSS) approach plate, and CYKF is still showing circling minima on the ILS RWY 26 plate.

Or get a Bose QC25 or 35 and the uflymike. That way when you are commuting you can plug into the back and only have to carry one headset.

You can plug any aviation headset in the back, with an adapter.

Re: Choosing plane for PPL training

There’s no spin involved in the PPL flight text, but you need a lesson on spins and it’s easier to arrange this in your own plane, which you can only do if it’s approved for intentional spins Almost all Luscombes have both metal wings and an electric starter. Having said that, you might question the...
