Cheifpilot...what part are you thinking. I was thinking hidden valley area which is closer to the deerfoot then crowchild. I'd like to get into a place here in the bridgeland/cresent heights area but the prices start at $250,000 (for a small house) and go way up from there. This won't be a party sha...

ATTN all YYC based pilots and students......

I am (still) thinking of starting a pilot house here in YYC. I can't decide on the location - do I keep it central or closer to the airport. My thought's are leading to central - good compromise between distance to airport , nightlife, and to all amminities. Although, houseing prices are much more r...

:D more of the same...we lost 6 or 7 guys in the last few months to WJ and (LMAO) Canada $30,000 (love that). Lots of new faces - and yes some low timers. Things look like there going to keep moving for the unforseen future. Things at AC and JAZZ are moving along. Overall, a nice start to a recovery.

Shimmydampner....when you do teach circuits, are you landing with the carb heat on? I'm assumeing so from your question. I do a carb heat check on the downwind - (carb heat-on, mixture-rich, fuel on both, primer off and locked, mags on both, guage check, call downwind.....carbheat - cold). Then I co...

yup the 500 multi PIC is not easy to get, if your not willing to move to get it. As an instructor, if your school is slow - move to one that is IE Perimeter or Pro IFR. Or give Hicks and lawerence a call. Give some of the servey company's a call - there are a few with HO's and lower time requirments...

They can be grouped. You ido an initial PPC (5 hours training, written exams, rides)on both machines, then next year training (2 hours, written exams) on both, but only 1 ride. If you have 2 year PPC you do training(2 hours each machine) in leu of and PCC (loft) ride on one machine.

Perimeter is one of the best IFR schools in the country - I'm biased, I taught there. Compared to the IFR I did at MFC, Perimeter is far better. The equipment is first class (planes have HSI,RMI, IFR cert GPS, Cert for known iceing, all slaved and autopilot) good sims and knowedgeable staff. The onl...

Moving... I would certinally bug CMA. They are known to hire low timers and do so on a semi regular basis. Call them and see what they require. If there is a ramp position jump on it. I belive they now require 500 hours though but I may be wrong. As for sunwest - I wouldn't bother. You need time on ...

I knew alot of part time instructors, and they loved it. You could also go to your local jump zone (parashoot) and see if they need a weekend jump pilot. buying the plane is a good, but expensive way to build time. Personally, I'd go the instructor route. Once you hit 1000 hours TT, take a leave fro...

Tough question - PIC or pay/lifestyle....I have a few questions for you. What is your present experience (hours, ATPL, and so on)? Will this FO position lead to a left seat position in a resonable amount of time? What is your debt load like? Can you afford the lower paying gig? Are you in a huge rus...
