Re: Lien on plane in Ontario

A simple lien search will bring up any liens against said vehicle and who put it on there. After that it's up to the owner to deal with it. Sometimes you can get out of it if the other party has not pursued it, or sometimes the have been settled but the lien not removed - but it can also be a major...

Thank God! For years I was told to "Act like a gentleman"! Now I can act like everybody! PS What does this do to the old cry aboard a sinking ship? You know: "Women and children first"?

Re: Lien on plane in Ontario

I'm surprised the lien didn't show up during the previous purchase. I would never purchase a high dollar item like a home, car or plane without seeing a signed declaration from the previous owner that the property was free and clear. That's the problem, they did have the proper paperwork but the go...

Re: Gas guzzling trudeau plane

Everyone should stop flying planes. The 200 is actually more green as it has paid its dues already and a long life prevents wasting a good airframe.

Can't wait for the election to pass now to get rid of all these political azzhats.

Re: Lien on plane in Ontario

I've seen it multiple times where the lien is cleared but never removed from the title until someone goes poking or for a sale. You then have to go through the motions with the issuer again to have it visibly removed. A real bureaucratic p.i.t.a.

Re: EASA B1.1 to TC M2

You'll need to fill out the necessary tasks for M2 category in a booklet or logbook.

As long as it's a civil aircraft and is signed off by a license holder then the experience will count.

There is no easy conversion.

Re: Owner Maintenance Question

You won't be able to register outside of the OM category in this case, at least not economically. You can't just slap STC paperwork on top of homemade parts as then those parts would be classified as suspected unapproved parts, they were not made by the certificate holder or anyone else approved.

Re: Tools?

The school should have a basic list to start with, go with that for now and when you know what you want to work on, start buying more type specific tools. Some helicopters are completely metric with a few imperial kits thrown in, you need both.

Re: What is the process for putting a helipad on my property?

In your case, you just fly in and out at your own risk. If you have neighbours that are close enough, you should consult with them. As far as making an approved helipad, you'll need lots of surveying, approved plans following ICAO standards and a couple wheelbarrows of cash and a year or two. Is the...

What kind of low life tries to smoke on a plane? Of course the loser won't even come forward to accept responsibility so the flight can continue. I hope they get fined huge.

As for the plane leaving, schedules must be kept with the aircraft.
