My question is does it matter where I put the ultralight time whether it’s here in Canada or down in the US. My friend has an advanced ultralight down sout...

Just got a call from TC. They are accepting my South African Ultralight Instructor rating after reviewing the syllabus. I am therefore happy to report that I do not have to write the FITEN exam.
Do I have to write the FITEN exam if I already wrote the class 4 AIRAF exam ?

Re: PPL training on floats?

Marakii. If you want to fly floats for a living buy a relatively cheap float plane and do all your flying on it up to your commercial pilots license and you will have no problem getting a job. Then if you want to sell the airplane and get your money back. Sounds good, but don’t operators want “comm...

Hi. Brampton is at full training capacity. The college students have booking priority, and they have fights reserved in the mornings, which isn't helpful. Typically, you want to schedule your flights at least a month in advance, if you want to fly in daylight. Booking anything within 2 weeks is pos...
