Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

As long as you're a 250 and didn't spend 120k on your education doing airport management then it might be ok. Look at the USA, in Sept the government bailout for payroll ends. Youre going to see mass layoffs. I dont know if anyone else read this, pilots for icelandair will now be doing flight attend...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

Re: Awos Canada

I was looking in the states, so the AWOS has a phone number so you can call and check. Obviously I'm not talking about call in atis. I'm talking about smaller airports that have no tower . This is CYHE

Re: Awos Canada

I don't see one for hope. The others list a frequency. So they don't have a direct phone number, I'm guessing you would have to call FSS

Re: Logging cross country

Thinking more about TC. 25 nm is for flight plan. It's a very broad definition for sure but maybe that's good. It used to be for ppl cross country 3 airports one at least 25 nm away. Obviously that rule has changed

Re: Logging cross country

It's a bit ambiguous. I'm looking mostly for the qualifications for ifr test. Since it doesn't require landing then any time you navigate somewhere it is cross country. Again I'm referring to ifr test requirements.

Re: Logging cross country

Transport Canada does not provide a definition of "cross-country" flight in the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs), however, a general consensus among pilots is that, in order to log "cross-country time" in a Pilot's Logbook, the pilot must have demonstrated some kind of naviga...

Logging cross country

As I understand TC definition of cross country is any flight from A to B or even A to A. Do you log it all as cross country or just regular then call it cc for flight test standards

Multi ifr training hours

Transport says you need 20 hours dual instruction, subpart says must have 5 hours in type. Does that mean 5 hours dual training in multi engine, and the rest can be in single engine. Some schools quote 10 dual multi and 10 dual single instrument training. Others quote 20 dual multi instrument.
