Re: Digital logbook recommendations

:D LOL, that's the perfect business model to use to develop software. I want it to automatically pull the flights from FlightAware and FlightRadar24 and calculate my hours for me. Pulling the LiveATC feeds would be good too. Always nice to hear myself on the radio. It should archive the data by air...

Re: US Doctors in Canada

AFAIK, you can't get initial FAA medicals in Canada anymore. At least that was the case 3 years ago when I got mine. You can get your medical renewed in Canada, just not an initial. At least that's what I was told by three of the 12 doctors on that list. Rules might have changed again or those doct...

Re: Commercial Pilot licence / Medical question

Short answer yes. In fact, if the cost of a Cat 1 and Cat 3 medical is the same for you, go ahead and do a Cat 1 every two years. You will have CPL privileges for 6 months then PPL privileges for a further 18 months. Nuanced answer which you'll need to understand for your written exam: Licences don'...

Re: need access to a A320, A330 or A340 sim

Anyone know if the IPC actually requires a GPS approach? If I end up doing this in a light twin I'd rather just do a raw-data ILS and a non-precisions than screw around learning the Garmen 430 (Yeah I know it's not that hard, but it's easier for me not to have learn it for a single flight).

whats the difference between a CANADA PASS vs Aircrew Pass?

are they essentially the same?
Apples and oranges, it can be both at the same time. A CANADA RAIC is for multiple airports (but still issued by a single airport). An Air Crew RAIC simply designates a RAIC holder as Air Crew.

Take a good look at the study and reference guide. https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp691-menu-5051.htm Study the CAP GEN. Be confused about nothing inside of it. Practice several cold corrections. Study chart legends. Do the pilottraining.ca exams. You'll do great! Good luck.

Re: Authority to Release Information - Converting a license from TC to Foreign

For converting TCCA to FAA, FAA provides a form. Maybe CASA has something similar. Are you having trouble contacting CASA or TC?

Hi,
1) You don't need IR Rating to write ATPL exam all you need is the total number of hours
Wrong, you only need 50% of the total number of hours required for the licence.

I find the -42 to be comparable to other high perf singles in terms of payload.

Haven't been in a -62, but I imagine it's a step up to compete with other twins.

Sure does.

And I understand that it's due and payable even if they terminate your employment. A very ugly position to be in. I can accept it being due if one resigns, but not this.

Re: Medical Cat 1 to Cat 3 for the next year

Will be interesting to see if the regulation changes in this regard.

Call me a pedant, but, as a matter of clarity, it's important to note that your Cat 1 is always a Cat 1, it never reverts to a Cat 3.
