I have no idea what the average is. I got 87%, which is probably a typical mark. The pass is 60%.

I second JC's recommendation to "get friendly" with your AIP. Overall, I found this exam more difficult than the PPAER (obviously). I got the exact same mark that I got on the PPAER, with double the amount of studying. The Air Law section was very easy, as was the Met. I found the Gen Knowledge sect...

Pipeline/Patrol/Survey Flying

Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone here has done any pipeline/patrol/survey flying in their career. Are these jobs typical for a new entrant, or do these companies generally seek related experience or an ATPL? If anyone has any info on this type of flying I would be very appreciative. I tried to do ...

PPCs vs Type Ratings

Hey guys, Once again, the CARs are giving me a headache. :) I don't quite see the difference between a getting a type rating done and a PPC. (i.e. priveledges of each, when you need a PPC vs. a type...) I know you need to have a valid PPC to do a type rating, but that's about it. Does it have more t...

Recency Requirements?

Hey guys, I am hoping some of you can help resolve my confusion in regards to TC's recency requirements. It has always been my understanding that there are 3 subsections: 1) 5 year requirement: if you have not used the priveledges of your license within 5 years, you must redo the written tests for y...

permateacher, Congrats on your job! I'm sure you will really enjoy the metro and your new career. 180, I don't think you are being fair on instructors. 1000 hours is not 10 hours 100 times over, and instructing hours are not useless. You obviously have no clue and I don't think it is fair to general...

Thanks for all the responses. As far as my motives are concerned, I realize that this type of work is NOT for time builders. Although I am a lowtime pilot (230tt, working on my instructor rating now), this is something that I am interested in doing. I understand that I would not likely get paid for ...

Missionary Flying

Hey guys, Does anyone have any info in regards to obtaining work as a missionary pilot? Specifically, what kind of qualifications are normally required? How can I go about finding a list of companies that hire missionary pilots? Location is not important either. I am assuming most of these jobs will...

Windsor Flying Club is looking for an instructor, try them. I found this posting in the job forum. There were a couple there for instructors.

Good luck!

July, Merçi pour votre réponse. Je pense que je suis capable de communiquer en français, mais comme j'ai dit avant, mon français n'est pas assez bon que mon anglais. J'ai étudié la français pour plusieurs années, mais je n'étais jamais verser dans la culture, et ceçi est ma problème. Mon père est en...

Quebec Air Express

Salut tout le monde! Comme le français n'est pas ma première langue, je vais poster en anglais (j'espère qu'il n'y a pas de problème!) I am very interested in Quebec Air Express, and I would like to send them a copy of my resume and cover letter. I realize that the preferred way to do this is via th...

Vx and Vy

Hey guys, Can someone provide a logical explanation as to why Vx increases with altitude, while Vy decreases? It seems to me that both should decrease, but I am obviously wrong. I understand the physics behind each (excess thrust vs. excess power), but do not see the logic behind it. Thanks in advan...

Attn: YWG Pilot

Hey YWG Pilot,

I sent you a PM from the old forum (username= uwochris). I don't know if you ever got it or not as I sent it just before the forum changed (your username was YWG Student). If not, please let me know by PM.

Thanks,

Chris.
