Re: Overflying (R) Aerodromes where PPR is required?

Call the operator , sometimes they might maybe give you permission to land . Some people like to know who is landing is all . Been to a few places like that they enjoy their airport if you respect the property they might even let you return . Case of beer usually works :) Agree on this. A lot of PP...

Re: List of Pilot Examiners for Initial Instructor Rating?

I know of a person who is based out of in the Southern Interior of BC but flies out to Whitehorse to do initial Flight Instructor flight tests but can do other tests out of BC... I am starting to think that this might be a policy of the Pacific region?

Re: Logbook Corrections

Any correction in any aviation document, your log book, the journey log, OFP etc etc has to be done in a way that allows the incorrect entry to be visible. If you make a mistake the most common method is to draw a line through the incorrect entry in such a way that it is still intelligible and then...

Re: Flight test before written exam ?

I think a good flight instructor should be able to ensure that their student is prepared enough for the ground portion of a flight test. Totally agree that completing the written prior will help a lot, but so too can good instruction (albeit with a little more attention to detail)

Re: Need Advice to choose flight school in BC

You're bound to get way more flying done if you stay in the prairies. 1. Less population density, hence faster to recover from a second or third or umpteenth wave of the pandemic. 2. Lesser fog or precip days leading to much more flying days. 3. Wind and Thunderstorm always a concern on the prairie ...

Re: Flight training with masks?

Quite true - but if my glasses fog up wearing a mask without a valve, my breath must therefore be going out the top of the mask to some extent regardless. One could say that fog on your glasses is also proof that the mask is ineffective, and the valve simply redirects the flow away from the eyes, a...

Re: Do ATPL Exams Written = IATRA?

For anyone who has over 750 hours (375 hours until November 31, 2020) and will be doing a multi-engine PPC, it makes sense to write the SARON and SAMRA as opposed to the IATRA since their PPC will effectively lock in their exams for life. It does take about 2-3 times more studying to get it done but...

Doesn't seem to work in the (noisy) plane I fly. Most pilots at the company -granted, not flight training- seem to put it inside their mask.

I ran out of time with my Work Permit and ended up returning to India. Then applied for my PR from there and returned a couple years later. Been here since 2012 and have eventually become a citizen here.

Re: Career path for foreign student pilots

You will need to get a PR while working on the PG Work Permit. PGWP is not extendable (Trust me, I tried and failed a long time ago!) and getting an open work permit might be a bit of a struggle depending on your situation. Some provinces have some rules surrounding PR applications which involve som...

No, it just means at least 5 hours in aeroplanes for a fixed wing IFR, or at least 5 hours in helos for the fling wing IFR.
Fling wing 😂

Modular because given that everything is up in the air right now, you might not need a multi IFR right out of the gate... So a single engine VFR CPL might get you in the door with a survey operator or doing a flight instructor dressing might get you into a flight school. With an integrated course, y...

Re: Medical validity for over age 40 flight instructors

My understanding is that if you are providing instruction, then it should be considered a dual instructional flight. If that person is coming along for an "aerial tour" under CAR 406, then they are a passenger.
