Re: Lesson Plans

I appreciate the comment, but the question still stands :wink: This is more so for my own enjoyment and to better organize myself when teaching type familiarization. I'm not exactly seeking out an instructor rating anywhere in the near future. Any hint as to what kind of gig you have doing type fam...

Re: Control Tower Tagalong?

I used to call up the FSS or tower all the time and ask if they had time for a short visit. Made a few friends in places I used to layover from that. I'm sure they're restricted now, but I highly recommend just giving your local ATS unit a call when this is over.

Re: work permit to work in USA

Airwork conducted under a Part 91 LOA (702 in Canada)? Most guys go in under a B1 status or visa. The key is to tell the border officer you're going for business, not to work, which is correct. Edit: I saw your post in the french forum. Not sure what country you're a citizen of, but you're going to ...

About $550 a year for $350,000 coverage. It varies by age (though if I remember correctly you're locked into a premium for a certain term).

Re: Commuting, Acclimatization and new Flight Duty Regs

There's going to be a lot of under the table commuting happening I presume. edit: I also think the crew rest monitoring system is going to be key to this working. I'm not sure about others, but I'm not a morning person and a 13 hour duty day starting at 7:00 is hard for me. Same pairing at 13:00 is ...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

My guess was if Biden won, the pandemic would be over within 4-6 weeks of inauguration. Not that I think covid is a hoax, but it certainly is very political.

Re: Take Off Alternate

You can use regular minimums i.e. 200 1/2m for an ILS. Distance is 60 minutes at OEI or ETOPS OEI if the aircraft is ETOPS certified.

Re: Use the Autofeather

First there is no provision for propeller aircraft to have reduced power T/O's having said that 704/703 there is no requirement for runway analysis and obstruction other than what is dictated in the CAP. The pilot under VFR has little or no performance restrictions and self analysis of T/O path etc...

Re: Use the Autofeather

That accident report is very interesting. It highlights the dangers of "company takeoff power" settings that are all too common with smaller operators. I would hazard a guess that at least 80% of King Air operators in Canada use a procedure similar to the accident company was using. Airlin...

Did you look at studying in the US? If you desire to establish a career in the place you study there is a lot more going on there: Both activity wise and much better pay! Sure I considered, but the problem is my legal status or VISA in the US. As far as I know, it is almost impossible to get the PR...

Re: Loss of Licence Insurance

I'm with CSU Brantford. The policy is underwritten by Lloyd's. I haven't of course made a claim, but I found the premium to be reasonable and the service to be excellent. It covers 5 times your annual income up to I believe $700,000 if you permanently lose your medical, after a 1 year waiting period...

Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

Don't overthink it. You'll operate under CAR 604, but with no requirement for a PORD. The same as every private Cessna at the airfield. Did you mean operate under CAR Part VI? Most Cessnas cannot operate under 604. 604.02 This Subpart applies to the following Canadian aircraft: (a) large aeroplanes...

Re: Steep Turns At Low Altitude

If it makes you feel any better, pipeline patrol planes, usually a Cessna 172, are put into 60-degree level bank turns every day at altitudes as low as 300'. Now I'm not suggesting a student pilot or any inexperienced pilot perform these, but it gives you some general sense that they're possible and...

Re: Pearson Overflight

Apparently a student from an undisclosed flight school west of Toronto but east of London did a low and over on a runway with live traffic and caused a few go-arounds. Rumor is the YYZ low and overs are going to be a thing of the past unfortunately.

So given that insurance agencies are somewhat notorious in finding ways to avoid a payout I find myself wondering if "loss of license" is an apt term. Unless someone behavior leads to "licensing action" by the regulator the license they hold is never lost. However they may fail ...
