Re: Class 1 medical for cpl training

I would just go and spend the money now, on the off chance they find something disqualifying or that requires some time and doctors visits to get a stamp on your Cat 1. If your thinking about getting a CPL, it is what an hour maybe 1 1/2 hours in the air?

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

I laugh at all the nay sayers... we need to stick to our 100 year old piston engines damit. Probably would have said the same thing when the first turbojets showed up. Time between overhaul is too short! The internal tmerpatures are too hot! The tolerances are to tight! The fuel burn is too high! Lo...

Re: KD Air not flying

Quite sad, Lars and Diane had KD Air dialed in and ran it well for years. They did not try to over expand, they stuck with a program that was safe and reliable.

Re: Assistance compressing a large PDF file

Yes alas what you have is not really a PDF but 187 jpegs that are held in a PDF file, so there is not much compression that can go on.

Re: Confed drops IFR

No you need a Multi Engine Raiting, and then can do a Multi IFR flight test. Essentially adding IFR to aircraft you already can fly VFR. Think of IFR as a skill set you add to aircraft you can fly already.

I saw some moron testing out his drone on the roof parking lot of Richmond Center the other day. I went up to him and tried to politely inform him that it's against the law but I got told to "@#$! off."

Re: Laptops at high altitude

Should be ok if you have and SSD, just allow everything to warm back up before use and if possible remove the battery. They don’t like to freeze. The HDD could allow be removed and carried on person.

Re: YYZ De-icing live props

No the props are deuces before hand with mop and bucket or when shutdown. However if your props are good and clean and you just need airframe driving this can be done with engines in feather.

Re: Gear-Up: Engine shutdown?

Don't forget that when you shut them down, and pull fire handles, select fuel off etc. you are closing some fuel and hydraulic valves so that should you go off the runway you are doing your best to keep flammables contained. Another reason I would do it.

Re: Max Flight time you can log

I have done a 12 min air time flight with 1.3 flight time. Between driving and departure delays and gate delays in the other side. It is what it is. Perhaps if your worried for licensing make a note of why in your logbook.
