Wow, here I thought I had 10 000 hours of cross country time and it turns out I have 6. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Logging cross country

When I was logging time for my licences, any time spent navigating to somewhere was logged as cross country time. To and from the practice area, diversion exercise, going from one airport to another one 3nm away, local flight over a friend's house, everything was logged as cross country. Kept track ...

Re: Are AC pilots and FA's required to self-isolate for 14 days after operating a overseas pairing ie YYZ-NRT-YYZ?

Only people actually having symptoms or a positive Covid test require isolation. Returning travellers are required to quarantine, not self isolate. In BC I believe the answer is yes, with the exception that they can go back to work with no restriction. In other words each time you come home you are ...

Well, they’ve started offering packages for people to retire. We are losing ATCO’s because of this already. Staffing was an issue and it’s going to be one again in a year or two.
What's the package being offered? Anyone taking it?

Re: Air Transat Ferry flights

Any aircraft in the air has an Operator. That is never vague and is never a shared responsibility. Nav Canada is billing an operator. These flights were insured by an operator. The test used by the Canadian Transportation Agency is who has "operational control" of the aircraft. But in the case of a...

Not a problem, but that's not what the aircraft did. It was at 370 the entire flight.

Re: Air Transat Ferry flights

My guess is that the aircraft is on a ferry flight and does not require an OC.

Commercial flight or not though, doesn't RVSM require an ops spec? If so, then the aircraft would need to be on an OC or would need permission to operate in RVSM airspace.

If it was not under the OC, how did they get into RVSM airspace? There's so little traffic out there today, maybe they just phoned each FIR and got approval? What about MNPS? Maybe I missed the requirement to operate under AT OC for RVSM? An operator shall ensure that aeroplanes operated in RVSM ai...

I'm not so certain. If I have insurance for ferry flights, grab another pilot, jump in a commercially registered plane and fly it somewhere without an OC, what CAR am I breaking?

Re: How damage history affects the price?

Problem is though a lot of people will ask if there is any damage history and if the answer is yes - they hang up the phone. That's not a problem. Getting rid of the tire kickers and dreamers early on will make the whole process a lot easier. If you have a well maintained aircraft with good documen...

Re: How damage history affects the price?

The whole "damage history / no damage distory" binary is a complete red herring. The history doesn't matter. Take a brand new aircraft, leave it outside in Florida for five years without flying, and you have a pile of junk parts with no damage history. You want to know the present state of the aircr...

Re: How do you record footage with flight display ribbons?

They are called tapes.

Most EFIS systems have recording functions. I don't know if they are using that EFIS data or if they are recording it with the video platform. No idea what program they are using to edit the data into the video.

Maybe Garmin?

Re: Building and selling of kit aircraft

You are sort of correct goingnowherefast. The completed aircraft is about the value of the parts so there is no profit margin in building the aircraft to sell it on the market. There are however many homebuilders who want a Lancair, RV10, Glastar, or Rocket built to their specifications who will pay...

What did the boroscope show? Is this a commercial aircraft or private? Commercial you need to follow Continental's instructions, private you should follow them.

KD Air was a pretty good brand and well known on Vancouver Island. If I was going for an interview there I'd ask them how often they've failed to make payroll since taking over the business.

The policy will cover named pilots as PIC, and may also cover an appropriately licenced and rated PIC giving dual instru...
