Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

No no you misunderstand. You need to have the exact same level of knowledge as the person making such statements. If you know less, you are incompetent. If you know more, you are hung up on irrelevant details! If you drive 1 km / hr slower than me, you're a danger to everyone on the road and blocki...

Re: Commercial Flight test soon...

Know your VNC cold.
Know your weather cold, GFA's ect
Flight planning and decision making.

Ace the ground portion and it relaxes you and the examiner for air portion. Mine was a breeze for this reason.

Best wishes!

Re: B1900 or flight instruction?

You will get a lot more experience at manoeuvring, stalls, spins, correcting botched landings, taking off and landing in a crosswind, steep turns, reading a chart, forced approaches, and a bunch of other basic stuff, as an instructor, than you would in the right seat of a 1900.

Re: B1900 or flight instruction?

Instructing is not meant for everybody, but it certainly is a good way to obtain PIC time and good experience... Instructing IFR also is one of the best way to sharpen your IFR skills in my opinion. Couple questions. I'm just curious why a boatload of 172 PIC time, repetition instructing in the cir...

Re: 50 hours and no solo

Did TC take, in your view, appropriate action against the OC holder? I have no view, I don't know the details of the situation in sufficient detail to know who was responsible for what. Sometimes I simply trust people to do the job assigned to them the best they can. Sometimes I'm disappointed. I'v...

Re: 50 hours and no solo

If an OC holder broke a Canadian regulation, then yes, we depend upon TC to regulate them - out of business, if appropriate. TC enforces TC's safety regulations. Those regulations don't really apply to the commercial side of business conduct, and TC isn't going to get involved in that side - it's n...

Re: 50 hours and no solo

The same argument applies to scummy flight schools, who pressure pre-ppl students into expensive and dangerous "experience" flights in inappropriate conditions with substandard supervision. They should lose their OC for good. Most of you disagree. Fine. Yet most of you want scummy 705's to lose the...

Re: 50 hours and no solo

Yes, you’re wrong. Let’s not romanticize things, OK? To hold an OC you need to meet the TC requirements to hold an OC. If you meet the requirements and TC refuses, you can ask the TATC (and from there the federal courts) to force the minister to reconsider. It’s not really a matter of discretion, n...

Re: "Mandatory IFR Route" inlcudes a mystery waypoint

In the real world, as a light airplane, file direct and take what they give you.

The only place I can recall being given an arrival transition with a ton of included waypoints, is White Plains NY, probably because of the proximity to NYC airspace.
