Re: saron samra prep

I think they only do the 3 day course for the ATPL. It is only the INRAT where they have an in-depth and a crash course. Aerocourse has a companion workbook that is essentially a question bank that comes with the course. It can also be bought separately and covers almost everything you need to know ...

Steinbach, in the winter. Sure winner for all requirements.
I second this. I think Harv's Air has an iATPL program but I am not sure. Personally, I would suggest going straight CPL with Group 1 IFR and then writing your ATPL exams later.

Re: saron samra prep

I can't recommend AeroCourse enough! Really well done "crash" course. Did the 3 day course over the weekend, wrote the exams on Tuesday (SARON) and Thursday (SAMRA) and passed. If you can do self study, just going through their workbook can help a fair bit.

Re: C150 spin versus C152

Minor differences most definitely possible. Heck I've noticed minor differences between aircraft of...

I would suggest try flying with a few instr...

Re: Class2 prep

The Sharper Edge book, while far from perfect, is a good place to start. I would seriously fact-check everything to make sure that you get the information correct. But, it is really well laid out and gives you an idea on how to go about preparing for the AIRAF exam. You could also try out PilotTrain...

Really know your aerodynamics, especially stall related ones. Know your FIG. If you have the FIG, Sharper Edge and PilotTraining.ca to go over, you should sail through without any problems. Good luck!

Re: Do old Instructor hours count?

They will definitely count towards the TC requirement. Whether they "count" towards your knowledge is a different question altogether.

Short answer, yes.

Re: Part Time Flight Instructor

If you're able to work weekends at a busy flight school, it might work as a part-time gig. Most schools only pay per flight hour, so it will be pretty hard to get 20 hours of work if you're part time, so I would not worry about going over on the hours. Just be aware that if it is a bad weather day, ...

Re: Island Costal Aviation

I've met him once. Great guy! Very passionate about what he does and I've only heard good things about his floatplane ratings. If you don't have a flight instructor rating, but you do have a lot of float time, then you can still teach float ratings. He may be after either of those. Good luck!

I think it's all the economy of scale and also a little greed.. When there used to be a lot more airplanes flying, making parts in large scale was probably profitable.
