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...

Re: What to do next?

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...

Re: Northwestern Air Lease

I met one of their hiring people at a job fair a few years ago. They were offering rotational jobs (2 and 2 I think) and since they fly a sched down to YEG you could still be in civilization half the year. He gave me a free hat so I'm contractually obligated to give him a good reference. Yeah the r...

Re: IFR Alternate

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...

Re: Entry Level Jobs

Yeah, I talked to a company up north and they said they had a guy come from Summit (to them) who was there for 2 years on the ramp. I know that doesn't represent the north as a whole but I was surprised considering they keep posting ATR FOS, dispatch to flight line and ramp to flight line jobs. Tha...

Since you're willing to work a ramp and relocate you shouldn't have any trouble finding anything right now with NWO and Territory operators. However, you'd probably find a lot better opportunity come spring. Yeah, I talked to a company up north and they said they had a guy come from Summit (to them...

Re: Needing a place to do Multi and Multi IFR Training

Call Cornwall and calculate the cost of driving up there! It would be a nice experience to do the drive and they are able to get you going quickly and efficiently. They currently have a decent sized wait list! I was considering it since I heard good things. Have you heard much about Pro IFR recently?
