Re: Letter of Proficiency

As far as I know, there is no official template or description for such a thing. You could ask the insurance company what exactly they need. They all have different requirements. Sometimes copy of the logbook showing X amount of dual on type is sufficient, sometimes it isn't.

Attach a hook to your shoe then, and slide it over the pedal. It would be the equivalent of wearing gloves.

Re: Amputee PPL

It could easily be done in a Cherokee. They have a handbrake available, in fact mine only had a handbrake and no toe brakes. Good point! Older comanches are the same. If transport allows it, I suppose you could use the rudder with one foot. Maybe some kind of bicycle pedal bracket could be attached...

Re: Which Aircraft For PPL and CPL Training?

4. After exhaustively researching your dream, and still hell bent on ownership, buy a mint 150/152. Spend 50 grand on it if you have to, but make sure it's mint. Mint because you're thinking re-sell.

Re: Private aircraft import

Since we are being very thorough here, would it be correct to assume importing a plane from Europe should be easier, since they are -in pretty much every aspect of aviation- more strict than the US and even Canada?

Re: Which Aircraft For PPL and CPL Training?

I didn't claim it was a private hangar, also wasn't aware the OP wanted a private hangar. I've put my plane in a shared hangar, in the back corner for 225/month in a GA friendly airport in the prairies. That seems to be the going rate here. Hangar wasn't heated, but who cares if you are on a budget....

In theory, if you rebase a plane into another province, provincial taxes are due on its value.
So if you import it into BC, do the paperwork in BC, then fly it to your home in Ontario you would end up paying GST + BC PST + Ontario PST? Yikes.

Does anyone have a lead on a trustworthy AME to import a private single engine plane in the Vancouver area?

Re: Amputee PPL

It might be easier to do the ppl on floats if you have trouble adapting a plane. No brake issues... Although getting in and out of the airplane might be significant harder, be it in normal or emergency ops.

Hi everyone. I have recently made the decision to start my PPL and probably go commercial later.

Re: P180 job ad: "don't apply"

I have never understood this philosophy. The vast majority of the pilot population have no desire to stay 703 for their entire career. Both candidates in this scenario will leave. The only difference is the laid off major/regional pilot knows where they are going to leave to. Make them sign a bond ...

Re: Travel restrictions in EU vs Canada

Okay, I may have used the wrong english terminology to describe the situation. Either way, at the moment it is not implementing the recommendation.

So I'll rephrase my question: why would you expect Canada to implement a EU recommendation if EU member states aren't sure they will implement it?
