Re: PFC or Glacier Air

I think you mean aerobatic, not acrobatic. Although, Jessie could provably teach a few acrobatic moves, too. Their instructors provide incredible VFR training in the mountains (pilotage), Glass G airspace, emergency procedures in tight valleys and rivers, and learning what wind shear is like on shor...

Re: Mountain checkout

My first flight lesson from a very experienced mountain trained instructor was incredibly detailed and specific.

1. Mountains don't move
2. Don't hit the mountain

It got a bit more detailed after that.

Re: Consolidated backcountry locations in Canada

The BCGA has an incredibly active community exchanging information and planning outings for local sand bar landings. And as mentioned before, there is an active and growing list of backcountry airstrips and locations if you become a member of the bcga.

Re: Looking for Private multi engine/ifr instruction

Hmmm. So, if I have a friend who owns a twin, and an instructor who can teach MIFR, since i will never be solo in the aircraft, I can obtain my MIFR rating by borrowing the aircraft with a MIFR instructor? I would never be PIC until after the Multi flight test, anyway, so if I can put the instructor...

Re: Apple or Android for Tablet Navigation?

I just saw that the ipad mini 5 may be coming out next week (Oct 30th). I will be selling my ipad mini4 and probably grabbing an ipad mini 5. It's perfect size in cramped GA aircraft. I also use the 10.5 ipad if it's a longer x-country, it's just easier to look at.

Plane Rental in US in a US plane with a US Instructor

Hi I’m going travelling into the US this week for work and am renting a172 with an instructor. I have my PPL, can I count the time in the aircraft as part of my dual training for my CPL? My inclination is “no” for the fact of the non canadian aircraft and non canadian instructor. But I can still cou...

Flightaware?

Just curious...
I typed in my registration into flightaware and it had posted a flight I did from a Canadian airport to a US Airport. No other flights had been recorded or displayed. I don't have ads-b out. But I do have a garmin inreach.

Any ideas on how flightaware works?

Re: Should I find a new instructor, or is this a normal first few lessons?

I changed flight schools after 7 hours at one school. At that first school in the 7 lessons, I never took off once, never landed, and basically felt like a fool. I switched schools and was taking off and landing on first lesson. A waste of time during my first 7 hours of training in southern ontario...

I flew into Sechelt on Wednesday and landed and departed on 29 in a 172. There was no wind but I still felt some windshear over those trees on the rising terrain. My camera was set to the wrong settings, but here is what i filmed https://www.dropbox.com/s/0dfbdx33zm1w8 ... d.mov?dl=0

Re: Self study hours ppl

Strip it down. 1. You need someone to sign you off to write the ground 2. You have to pass the test 3. You need a way to log your flight training hours. Either in your own plane or an FTU. I dont think an FTU will turn you away for not doing your ground with them, they will make enough money from yo...
