Thanks!

Re: French FAA Pilot to Canada

Wages in Canada are equivalent to those of a third-world country when you compare them to the US. Do yourself and your bank account a favor, build your 1500 hours in the US and then get on with a US regional.

If that means hooking up with an American sugar-mama then so be it, You won't look back.

Almost 3 months post-op today and I am walking like I was before. Anyone out there had the same surg...

Re: Logbook App

I'm cheap and I'm far from being able to spend another +100$/year on a novelty item so I use Zululog as a backup to my paper logbook. Their free version has unlimited entries and is more than enough for what I need.

Re: Clarification on SPEC VIS

Thanks for the feedback guys! I went back and verify and all dauntless Q's on SPEC VIS mention using GS to determine aircraft category so I fired them an email.

BTW I passed the INRAT today with a 92%, I'm pretty happy! The GF will be paying me a beer tonight too! :)

Re: Question on calculating minimum alternate requirements

Its in the CapGen (I believe -- or in the AIM) -- but bottom line its common sense. You cannot take credit for any TEMPO improvement, as its a transitory improvement, which may not in reality be the condition when you arrive -- You also though if the TEMPO condition is worse and puts you below mini...

Re: Question on calculating minimum alternate requirements

Post again explaining how and why you're incapable of downloading the TC AIM and searching for the phrase "alternate minima" - or even using Google - and I'll tell you where to find it.

Question on calculating minimum alternate requirements

Is there there anywhere in the CARs/CAP/AIM that says that we cannot take credit for improving weather during a TEMPO for alternate calculations? Say the alternate minima is 600-2 and our planned ETA is 22z. Can we use the following alternate? I answered YES we could because of the TEMPO but it is a...

Interpolation for the CPL flight test

Hey guys, Quick question on the ground part of the CPL flight test. Is it required to do the interpolation for things like the FD winds, cruise performance and take-off and landing distances? Or is it acceptable to just go to the higher (more conservative) value in the POH? Example: Lets say I need ...
