Re: License Booklet question...

TC will not issue medical stickers. Same thing happen to me, called TC and they told me to carry both until the next one or to go get it stamped. Got the TC bill for the med nearly 9 months after the exam, lazy doc!

In asia they pay 10Ks to fly airbuses, while in Canada, we pay 10Ks to teach on 150's. We have such a better system!

Re: Air Richelieiu Vs Cargair Vs Eid Air

All the schools in CYHU don't allow their instructors and students as well to land in all nearby airport (ex: CSB3) because the runway is too "short" (2400 feet'). They have soo many students, that even a cpl pilot won't be allowed to take an airplaine if crosswind is over 10 kts, if no instructor ...

Re: Forced Approach - Best Glide Speed

CS the ideas you put down on virtual paper is gospel to ''experienced pilots'', but to 45 hrs ppl's it probably sounds like chineese. You just cant expect pilots to understand in a few months what took nearly a century to come up with. But keep em coming.

Re: Motivation to Teach

Keep in mind, google and reading is free, do your research and then use the instructor. I often spend time with students on things that could be easily looked up. You want a free hour with an instructor, buy him lunch.

Re: Finishing college or starting flight school?

As-tu appliqué pour le CQFA?
Finish cegep and even consider a BAC, nobody likes science pure.
Start Your PPL over the summer, try to dispatch at a flight school as a summer job.
That way you will get to know people and get aviation experience.
