Re: Hiring?

Last I've checked in was mostly YYZ positions ? Roughly how long until you're able to hold YUL ? Widely variable. In some classes it's under 2 years, others over 5. Then you have to bid back to YYZ for an upgrade. I would guess anyone coming on property today should be prepared to spend at least 50...

Anyone familiar with the Seawind? Looking to talk to anyone who has flown one or preferably someone who has built or owned one.

Does anyone have a phone number or email address for K Malewski in Vernon (FEWR) or D Brereton in Victoria (FDCZ)?

Re: issue of special c of a

I would start with a statement that all work was accomplished in accordance with AC 43.13 (as long as this was your reference for the modification). If that still isn't good enough and the inspector will not tell you what data is missing and you cannot get a copy of the staff instructions he is foll...

I think it would be easier to help you if you would post some information on the aircraft, details of how you accomplished the conversion, and a copy of the data you have already sent to your inspector.

Re: issue of special c of a

Acceptable data still means data. I'm assuming you have already stated that all work installing the engine conforms to AC 43.13? Have you requested a flight permit to do a gross weight climb test? You say it's a "one of" homebuilt. Are you the original builder? I'm not familiar with the process for ...

This is perfectly normal. Changing engine type is not maintenance, it's a "Major Modification". Luckily we can use acceptable data for an amateur built so it's not an insurmountable task. Have you looked up the continuing airworthiness section of the MD-RA website and gone through the Major Modifica...

Re: GPS Antennas and Garmin Avionics

Section 5.4 on page 91 of the G5 Certified Install Manual shows how to send GPS position from a GTX3X5 to the G5. The G5 does not require its own antenna. If your STC uses the same manual you're good with one antenna for both. I don't know about the Aera, but an antenna on the glareshield usually wo...

You would have to check the STC. Installing a transponder is Specialized Maintenance and requires an AMO. Is your AME working under an AMO?

Re: Port Hardy terminal services fee

Interesting. The CFS lists the operator as Transport Canada and when you call the number it says "Port Hardy Airport, Transport Canada". I didn't realize Transport Canada operated any airports but then I found this list: http://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/aviation/operating-airports-aerodromes/list-air...

In small retractable gear aircraft I wait until I'm clear of the runway, stop, then retract the flaps and switch frequencies and do all the other stuff. I don't see any reason to do anything sooner or while moving if I'm single pilot. The exception to this is retracting the flaps on rollout because ...

Re: Aircraft checkout who logs pic

It depends on who is in command of the aircraft. Normally the person getting checked out is receiving instruction from the person giving them the checkout. In that case the person receiving instruction logs dual and the person in command of the aircraft and giving instruction logs PIC.
