Re: Flight Schools near Vancouver

SkyQuest Aviation in Langley ran a great program when I was there. It has been a few years, but the CFI knew his stuff and the planes were always kept in good shape.

Re: Who owns Vancouver Global C-GHSW operated by SkyService based Millionaire YVR

Skyservice is not the owner. They simply hold the management contract and lease agreement. Common for all management companies.

Re: BC Charters

I know that Anderson Air uses Sovereigns and Falcons now for charter work out of the Landmark FBO. You could try them to see if they can accommodate your needs.

Re: Filing IFR with no alternate

As was mentioned, you can file a no alternate IFR flight plan. However, you need Ops Spec 83 to be approved on your OC. Here is the link to the wording:

Re: After SAIT, business jet work? Sunwest Aviation, Aurora

You can also check out SkyService, Air Partners (Aircraft Works is the AMO I believe) and AirSprint. All have bases in Calgary.

West Wind takeover of Transwest

Have heard that West Wind has bought out Transwest. Any truth to this rumour? Any pilot layoffs as a result of the merger if it has happened?

Re: Suncor flight dept shutting down?

What I have been hearing is that the Suncor flt dept is not shutting down. Suncor appears to be consolidating all of their subcharter work with one company...namely WestJet. All of the smaller carriers they have been using will now be replaced with one carrier.
