Re: alcohol and jumpseating

Or go ID90? It’s a little more but your no longer bound by the jumpseat rules. Most of my
Jumpseat airlines are also available via ID90.

Re: Boeing Max.

There are currently over 5000 outstanding orders on the books for the 737-MAX of all types with nothing to replace them with. Airbus is failing to meet order dates in the 320 NEO so to go to the back of the line is not an option to expand A new narrow body would take a decade or so to get certified....

Re: Would DeHavilland Canada restart Dash 8 300 production?

Just take a few sections out of the 400. Same engine wing prop etc. Derate the engines and bobs your uncle. Probably 95%+ parts commonality and if it’s as similar to the Q flight crews might be able to hope from one to another.

Re: Recession incoming

The one thing I will add is if you have the money to get done faster, do it! I managed zero to Multi IFR in about 18 months and I am no super bright superstar. The quicker you get the CPL the quicker you can get a job.

Re: Price/demand for free lance instructors.

Well I have heard a second hand anecdote of a similar price at a flying school. Though it was a dishonest instructor taking additional cash from a student over and above the schools price of about $100/hr. I heard this from the so called student and suggest that this was not a good route for you or ...

Re: C 172 checklist Canada vs US

My plane's checklists were written by the previous owners and closely follow the format and content of the flying school that taught them (and me) to fly. They're on the long side. I'm starting to write up new checklists. The old ones are lengthy and don't reflect some recent upgrades (GPS, engine ...

Re: C 172 checklist Canada vs US

Flight schools in Canada love to have super long and elaborate checklists that are useless. Things like Primer --- Locked. Well if you have not touched it since you started the engine, its still locked. Circuit Breakers --- IN. If everything is working then there in, you'll notice if one has popped ...

Re: Didn't pass Cat 1 medical, what is going to happen next..?

First of all take a deep breath and relax. I have had a similar situation. There are really four possible outcomes here, 1. Least likely is a false positive. Though I don't think the girlfriend activities would cause that, the little test strips don't have a long shelf life and unless the Dr. used a...

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. Infact they were the first commercial operation approved for GPS approaches in Canada! Not bad for a little Navajo operator. There schedule...

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.
