Re: Multi-IFR Training CYUL area

You can see what Cornwall Aviation may offer: http://cornwallaviation.com/en/services/multi-ifr.html They usually do a two week all-in kind of thing, but maybe they can accommodate other schedules as well. I'm working on my PPL there and am pretty satisfied. The folks who come and go doing their mu...

Merci TPC,

Ce qui m'agace, c'est que j'ai l'opportunité d'avoir une place au CQFA en janvier.
Je comprends bien que c’est une offre qui est très attrayant! (et bravo!)

Lance moi un MP avec ton numéro et on pourrais parler par texto ou téléphone si vous voulez?

Re: Latest Engine Overhaul costs

I'm very happy to recommend John and the staff at ATC Engines at Orillia, he's done several engines for me, always a good outcome. Though he's not right on the airport, he's close enough that having the engine re-n-re'd by Orillia Aviation works okay. Otherwise, it's into the back of a pickup (usua...

Re: Incorporating a partnership

I’ve done it in the past and if I had a chance to do it again I would run in the opposite direction.

If you’re keen on moving forward with it I would strongly suggest having an aviation knowledgeable corporate lawyer and an accountant who is also aviation savy.

All the best,

It's an interesting thought experiement to consider how you'd manoeuvre for landing in a headwind that's stronger than your airspeed at touchdown. Simple...land downwind. Simple, land into the wind. But I am sure Pelmet will regal us all with airmanship stories and point out all of our shortcomings...

Re: Air Transat runway incursion

There is indeed a discrepancy, and if you want you can see it on google earth. The chart shows the line past the corner of L, perpendicular to the edge of 8R. The actual line is a good bit before, and cuts across the corner on an angle. Normally, it would be a glaring error to go past a hold short ...

I would be treating the 172 as a 2 seater with more cargo than a cub so I don't have huge expectations, I don't think. ..
I’m a J-3 fan but your mission profile suits the 172 best.

She’ll be a bit of a dog off the water though!

Re: Reading the forums Could Prevent a Disaster like the 737 Max

Ridicule and condescension could be reasons why. Possibly people don't share because they don't want to be criticized or attacked, not on the information they're providing, but their own knowledge and experience and even personalities. AvCanada isn't exactly a non-judgemental, non-threatening site....

Well to answer my dear friend Pelmet’s question...

One stuffs another wad of crew into their cheek and taxies back past the dock they intended to land by under the guise of “landed long on purpose to cool the engine”.

Seriously Pelmet, you’re a piece of work.
