Re: Pilot logbook entries

I nevet really understood why people abbreviate callsigns and airport identifiers. You are in aviation. The majority of pilots will at some point fly internationally. Depends on your exposure to aviation. Some of us who will only ever be Private, GA pilots (and there are a lot of us) may fly intern...

Re: Pilot logbook entries

Until you make a switch to flying non-Canadian aircraft, I don't think anyone would find fault with leaving the "C" off the registrations. If they do, a note added to the first, or last, page in the book with a statement that "all flights in this book were conducted in Canadian aircraft" and leave i...

Re: uAvionix SkyBeacon installation in Canada

3. For high traffic density areas NavCanada is considering ground based antenna. The example he gave me was that if you have a ground station only system you will probably be ok in YVR class C, but not in YLW class C. Maybe broadcasting on 978, like the US? With Wx, Notams, etc.? I know, I know, Na...

Re: Commuting In/Out of Uniform & CATSA

CATSA and the TSA are not about security. They are about the illusion of security. It's the natural reaction to the "we have to do *something*" mentality when doing nothing would be a better choice.

Re: uAvionix SkyBeacon installation in Canada

1090ES systems are perfectly valid in the US FYI. Id go with a bottom mount 1090ES transponder for now from one of the few options that support diversity, and upgrade in the future, if and when TC mandates ADS-B. Except the diversity-supporting 1090ES systems are all in the $5-10k range right now.....

Re: Price/demand for free lance instructors.

In a capitalist society, prices rise to what the market will bear. Schools around here are quoting 1 year wait times for PPL courses. An available instructor can almost dictate their own salary.

Re: uAvionix SkyBeacon installation in Canada

Canada is not alone in requiring 1090ES. Literally the rest of the planet outside the US is going to 1090, space-based ADS-B.

Two thoughts... One, consider the military? They'll train you and it won't cost you anything except having to live in the middle of nowhere for a while. Two, not having a degree won't be a problem, but think about how you'd describe your situation without it sounding like you washed out of universit...

Talked to the guys at kakabeca airport today they have fuel on their airport for 1.60. If you can get in there it might be a better option.
Does that include taxes?

It's the chance one of the kids might actually find flying cool, and the pilot cool, and they strike up a private relationship, you know with those things we call phones -- without any knowledge of the parents -- (you know the ones that just want to drop off their kids, LOL). How do they set up tha...

During the sign-up, ground-briefings, etc. the children are rarely out of sight of the adults with whom they came. Your CFK events have been different from the ones i've been involved in.

We were down two planes at our latest CFK. From 7 to 5. 4 of the 5 already had VSC done through their various day jobs so they didn't have to do anything.

Small world. The red motorcycle in the photo is right in front of my dad's hangar (not his motorcycle though, a friend was visiting). They weren't watching when it happened, but they heard it and I think they were some of the first people out to help.
