Re: Import aircraft for owner maintenance category questions

Another option is to make the necessary repairs in the United States and have your uncle's wife register it in the United States. Fly it to Canada, pay GST/HST on its value, and operate it that way. It's similar to a trust. You would have to get an FAA validation, but that's a simple paperwork exer...

Re: CAME's that will complete telehealth or virtual assessments

Dr. Gilmore in Vaughn will do them (he's been doing them since last year). He's also very reasonable in price.

Re: FL430 for commercial airliners

Because 430 isn't an RVSM altitude. You would need a block altitude to operate at FL430.

Unless you have a 4 year degree or some sort of US status, there's little chance. If you do have a 4 year degree, apply to a University if they're willing to hire you as an instructor/teacher under a TN status. It must be a university, not a uni affiliated Part 141 school.

Re: Flight schools and their status?

Seems at least in Ontario, if the school offers commercial pilot licenses, they can't offer private instruction since they're regulated by the Private Careers Colleges Act, but small schools that only offer private instruction can do whatever they would like since they are not regulated by the provi...

Re: Moving to the US

There's still a lot more jobs down south, and regionals are started to recall everyone (some are even hiring). I'd wager that you'll fly sooner and make more money than if you stuck around here. If you managed to get your ATP on your own (the process is easier than if you had the CTP and exams done ...

Re: VFR flights to Cuba

There's a few companies in the US (including fltplan.com) who can arrange the permit. Alternatively, you can arrange the permit yourself. Don't forget to give an ETA update to Havana Center before entering their airspace as well as Miami on the way back (ADIZ stuff). I've only flown in on a 705 jet,...

US Travel Ban

Looks like Biden is doubling down on Trump's travel ban and implementing mandatory quarantines upon arrival in the US. No word on how long or how it will be implemented. No news on whether it applies to flight crew or "essential workers." I'd expect the DHS to announce regulations in the n...

Re: Pre-departure COVID-19 testing and negative results to be required for all air travelers coming to Canada

There is no requirement to be tested or quarantine if you're a crew on an airplane, whether that's a Boeing 787 or a Cessna 172. CBSA may try to argue with you, but the OIC is pretty clear that a "crew member" as defined in the CARs is exempt.

Re: ADSB diversity update?

The problem with the TailbeaconX is that while uAvionix claims that it will soon be TSO and meets all the performance requirements for NavCanada / Aireon, it isn't yet compatible with any sort of legal installation in Canada. There are dozens of Canadian registered aircraft flying around with these...
