See appendix A No suggestion of what a gender x'er is though under 2.3 definitions, just that they automatically weigh 206 Lbs. https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/aviation/reference-centre/advisory-circulars/ac-700-022.html What a time ...

Re: Woman Takes Her Miniature Service HORSE on Flight

I for one think a miniature service horse sounds awesome. As long as the animal can be secure during the flight, I don't see any harm in it... No worse than a dog, really. Sounds like it was a legit need with the necessary precautions taken. How many kids would have delighted to see a miniature pon...

Re: How bright are those lights

According to Transport Canada's (TC's) Aerodrome Standards and Recommended Practices,Footnote 30 setting 5 of the high-intensity lighting system provides 100% of the required output and setting 4 provides 25% of the required output; setting 5 is thus 4 times brighter than setting 4. Correct. It is ...

Re: Landed Beside Runway

The issue I've seen a lot in the North is that the airport maintenance folks run out of places to put snow, so they push it 50' past the runway edge on the leeward side (but only on one side). Then 6" of snow falls and you come in to land and the runway lights on the windward side get buried in drif...

Re: PilotTraining.ca. (Online ground school)

I used the Langley Flying School online free groundschool when I got back into flying and found their website an invaluable resource. And it's free. You probably can't use it for TC. But still it's a great tool to add to the pile. Holds: http://www.langleyflyingschool.com/Pages/IFR+Groundschool--IFR...

If you want a flying job, you must have the license appropriate to the job. If you want a foot in the door job, and are ready to start tomorrow, then apply today.
