Special arrangements for sea plane ratings: most AP’s can’t sign them off.

Re: Freelance Authorized Person?

APs are required to process applications from outside their FTU. They act for the minister, not for their employer.

Re: Closing Canadian Airspace to China

I don’t know it’s that hard. The US unilaterally refuses overflight (not just landing rights) permission to any aircraft carrying people on its no-fly list. Much of the Middle East refuses overflight permission to Israeli registered or manufactured aircraft. Countries made individual decisions about...

Don’t be silly. Reputable civilian operators don’t fly through closed airspace.

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Really? You have to read about a tragic end for seven people to learn not to take off or fly in bad weather? This story is recent, widely reported outside of the aviation bubble, and (to me) local. Family and friends have raised it for discussion. It resonates. I think a lot of people, including so...

Re: CARs 602.13 (2)b interpretation

Your contingency is covered under 602.12, not 602.13, because you don’t meet the “saving human life” clause of 602.13.

Re: Flying School or Club in Huron County Ontario

I can't answer your question specifically, but as a matter of general knowledge, the state of General Aviation in Canada, and the economics of it, are such that flying clubs are very very rare. Flight schools typically will rent aircraft to newly qualified pilots grudgingly at best. It's not a profi...

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

1. I do not think we have to do this after a recent tragedy. Of course we do. It's exactly the right time to do it. Some people don't think about these issues. The accident pilot certainly didn't. Maybe a headline about FOUR DEAD ADULTS AND THREE DEAD CHILDREN will get these worthwhile ideas into a...

Re: Do you log landings

Fair enough. Why does five quick touch and go's after night begins not meet the intent of the regulation? Because it seems fairly clear to me that the intent is that you go off and do five flights, not just five tight circuit landings. Thereby expanding your experience flying somewhere at night, no...

Which regulation would have been broken if someone flies a PC12 with just themselves on board without a PORD?

Re: Do you need a valid ppc to ferry aircraft?

A Canadian PC12 requires a part 604 private operator registration to carry passengers or goods, but if it’s just the ferry pilot on board it appears to be exempt.

Re: Do you log landings

It's fairly common to see someone taxi out and bang out 5 quick circuits solo right after the sun sets, and then taxi in and load up with people. It meets the wording in the regs, but it sure doesn't meet the intent. Five quick circuits right after sunset doesn't meet the regulation at all. For fly...

Re: Flying School or Club in Huron County Ontario

Does anyone know of a flight school or flying club in/near Huron County that I have not found that has airplanes for rent? Hard to say. We don't know which ones you've found. Options are: 1. Buy your own airplane 2. Move 3. Put up with the driving. Honestly an hour isn't bad: many people take a 90 ...

Night began at 514pm.

Accident ocurred at 503pm.
In Toronto. Kingston is 12 mins earlier.

For example, Civil twilight ends and night begins today at 1714 in Toronto, and 1702 local, in Kingston, and hasn’t moved much in three days.

Furthermore, I look at this type of thing as nepotism and elitism. You aren't guaranteed the best candidates, you are just guaranteed the best candidates out of the pool that can afford to pay. I"m not sure you're guaranteed the best candidates the old fashioned way, either. I'm sure a lot of peopl...

What you should be learning is that working up north flying in challenging vfr conditions, making the move to ifr on a small turbine and then moving to the airlines isn't 'suffering' it is learning your trade.

As it looks like they were on a trip (coming from Texas) I would also think those 7 people would also have a baggage? Seems a bit overloaded.
Two were friends who lived in Toronto - the ride up from the US was just the parents and three children.

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Well this flight ended at about the same time as the autopilot (STEC30) would have been disengaged. Go figure.

It looks like seven victims of a severe case of get-there-itis.
