Re: CYWG "No Join"

Thanks for the additional information about "no joy" If it means visual contact then why would he say no joy to the transponder when he was looking for the transponder on the radar screen? Because he is looking at the radar screen where he would normally see the transponder return and can't see it,...

Re: CYWG "No Join"

Speaking of "NATO brevity" I recall an RAF Ascot Hercules respond to my inquiries by saying "That's all charlie, all charlie" I responded by saying "Say again". He of course responded by repeating "That's all charlie, all charlie". He of course meant "That is all correct" The use of the phraseology...

Re: CYWG "No Join"

No joy is also the Nato Brevity Codeword for something not working. The controller might be ex military and just reverting back to the term that they were used to. It is a Nato Brevity codeword/phrase but it doesn't mean "not working", rather in the air environment it means "Aircrew does not have v...

Re: CYWG "No Join"

From Urban Dictionary: "No joy is an English expression meaning a lack of success or failure; it can also mean a lack of luck. It is believed to derive from the lack of happiness or joy when success is achieved or a stroke of good fortune is encountered. Therefore no success, no luck, no joy." haha...

Re: CYWG "No Join"

In other words, we can’t see it or it’s not working. thanks for clearing that up, he must have said "no joy" any deeper explanation of what that means exactly and why that's used as opposed to anything else? Just curious that's all but good to know. and thanks ill p...

CYWG "No Join"

On take off the controller was like "abc, no join on your transponder!" I asked him to repeat and he said the exact same thing Has anyone heard this before? Is this is the correct ATC phraseology when your mode C isn't reporting? It seemed kind of confusing at the time. I don't recall what I've been...

Re: IATRA EXAM

for the IATRA use the Aerocourse ATPL/IATRA book. If you cannot get the question then research the interwebs for it. To gain the knowledge. Make flashcards. Its easier than INRAT for sure. And make sure you do the whole book, especially the weather section. It's pretty tough at first but then it mak...

Hey thanks for the tip with the ATPL, as well with the link to Sault College, that's actually really cheap! The local aviation college near me is nearly 100 grand for their two year course!

Re: Im at a fork in the road

Why not go to confederation college or sault college and have subsidized training? I don't know the cost but I work with a guy who went to Confederation and I believe at that school you get your CPL with Group 3, then he went to Cornwall aviation to get his Group 1 in about 7 days or less. He did co...

Re: What to do next?

But you need a multi to start your multi-IFR rating (group 1) But 100% if you have your PPL now, go and get your night rating. The cheapest way to do the MIFR, is doing the majority of the IFR procedure training in a single - then polish up your multi-engine flying in the twin with a twist of IFR t...

Re: What to do next?

You do not need a Multi Rating to start your IFR training. You can start your IFR training in the Multi on your first flight. After several hours of IFR and Multi training in the twin you can take your Multi Rating Flight Test. This was my approach as an instructor. It was cost effective and all my...

For a IFR or ME you need a PPL prior to. No set way of doing it, like you can get a multi before your CPL if you want. But you need a multi to start your multi-IFR rating (group 1) But 100% if you have your PPL now, go and get your night rating. For IFR you need certain hourly requirements such as 5...

Where are some of you coming up with this stuff? Always round the the higher value. SFOSTERSA is really the first person to get this right. I'm also with Big Pistons Forever, I hate the sliding scale even when it does work. It's a NPA so you have 800-2 or 300-1 above the lowest usable HAT/HAA. If i...

Re: IFR Alternate

It's a NPA so you have 800-2 or 300-1 above the lowest usable HAT/HAA. If it meets 800-2 then the following (sliding scale minima) are also authorized: 900-1.5 or 1000-1. In this case, you have 800 and 2.25 so it does meet the "Standard Alternate Minima" Therefore, in my opinion, you can use the sli...
