Is there even a transport office anywhere you can just walk into? The one in YYJ has been closed for a long time, they are there, you just can't go in without an appointment.

Flew from the West Coast to Buenos Aires through YYZ Thursday-Friday. Plane was maybe 1/3 full. The thing that struck me was the level of screening in Argentina. Debarked one pax at a time. Initial screening on the jetway at the cabin door and then there was a whole crew in hazmat gear for another ...

Re: US Doctors in Canada

Just go see Dr. Gilmore. He's the most reasonably priced medical examiner in Toronto for an FAA medical (he's actually far more competative than most doctors in the US). He's been doing both my Can and US medical for years and I highly recommend him. FYI, I think they need to be a Senior Medical Exa...

Re: Approach ban

What TC allows as practice (LPV instead of ILS for a check ride), isn't consistent with real world application or the regulations. A LPV approach is not a precision approach. They're just using it as practice because it's "good enough" to test a candidate (just like a hood is "good enough" to simula...

Re: Circling Apporaches. Where did they go?

EZ3 has their approaches made by a third party, not NavCan, (can't remember the guys name, but i think hes based in Josephburg or something), and the airport operator likely didn't pay for the circling area to be surveyed this year (or something like that).

Re: Smoking in aircraft

You can definitely smoke on your own aircraft or a charter company could allow it. its only illegal on planes because the company bans it, and that's enforceable under the aeronautics act.

Re: US visa for Sim Training (Canadian PRs)

B1 is the visa you need, but I'd recommend you ask the US Consulate for a combined B1/B2/C1/D so you won't need multiple visas to operate there and to travel/go to sim. Ask FSI about finger printing for the TSA.

D1 visa is the visa you need to operate an aircraft in the US.

Re: Which company is being chartered for the Corona Virus Flights?

Why not use AC? They have stopped their flights to China, so I believe a few 777/787 are available... Because their crew would be stuck from going to the USA for 14 days, and I'm sure the Union would raise a fit just like American Airlines union.

Re: Mexico tries to sell presidential jet to Canada, saying it's 'better' than PM's plane

It honestly wouldn't be a horrible purchase. Nothing wrong with having one aircraft not the same as the others (they're ready for replacement anyways) for VIP transportation. It's nicer, newer, more reliable, and has the range for a flight anywhere in the world when we eventually have a government t...
