Re: Lancair Feb 20/2021 at Josephburg

The pilot posted on a facebook page yesterday. Sounds like he had an aileron cable break and had to roll it completely around to touch down right side up. :shock: I read that too. Absolutely insane, reminds me of the movie Flight! Do you have a link? That does sound insane! He wrote it on the Alber...

Re: How do you value yourself as a low time pilot?

When I applied for my first job, I knew the flight hours I had were not worth much, but flight hours are only one part of my work experience. I made an effort to show my other work experience by emphasizing that I worked in the oil patch prior to my training, talked about how I operated trucks and m...

It depends on the browser you use. It doesn't play nice with adblockers either. 4 years ago I only got it to work in internet explorer. Today it also works in Chrome if I disable most plugins. The safest website is one nobody can use! I use Chrome even with adblocker and I've found their new websit...

Re: Interesting outlook

I don't understand how people are so surprised that the roll-out is taking a long time. The vaccine takes 2 doses, and billions of people all want it at the same time. Herd immunity would require something like 14 billion doses. The demand is staggering.

Yeah, It's terrible. I just got a letter from them saying I owe money and they are going to be getting the money through collections. ...no bill was ever sent to me.

Re: Flight Instructor Rating

If one were to finish his CPL in the coming months, what rating would be the next best step? M.E & Multi-IFR or Instructor Rating? I went straight for my instructor's rating and did the Multi and Group 1 later. That way I was able to start working for an FTU, building hours and saving money tow...

Re: Moncton Flight College

Definitely legit and well established with a decent reputation across the country. Expect to be based in Moncton, as the Fredericton campus only handles Chinese cadets. The Moncton campus is about 50/50 of domestic and Chinese students. MFC also has a great training program using a King Air Sim that...

Re: Flight schools and their status?

Always open to Chinese students. Their cheques never bounce. What are you implying with that remark? I don't know where aviation would be in Canada without them, honestly. They've employed a ton of Canadian pilots and AMEs with their first jobs, not you mention bringing ATC jobs to several airports...

CADORS Query Filter

Anyone know what's wrong with the CADORS filtering system? I can't for the life of me figure out how to find an incident that happened in September. Filter by date doesn't work, and any attempt I've made to narrow it down either gets zero results or many that are not in any chronological order. Noth...

Re: Flight Instructor Rating

The point I am making is that there's no point doing an instructor rating unless you have a job at an FTU lined up . I don't know how I can make it more clearly... ...Lots of people think that having an instructor rating would be cool, and they can boast about it to their friends and women in bars,...

Re: Flight Instructor Rating

If you're a class IV instructor without a job, you are totally useless. I'm sorry if that hurts some people's feelings. Unless you have a plan to get a job, there's no point getting the rating. I loved having Class 4's who would do the grunt work of endless circuits for me, And we wonder why it tak...

Re: Flight Instructor Rating

What are you going to do after you get the rating? As a Class IV instructor, you're pretty much useless: you can't do anything on your own, you have to be supervised by and work for a Flight Training Unit. Is that your plan? You don't have to discuss it here, but you should know what it is. Dude.. ...

I’ve never heard of FIC caring either way what was filed... It’s up to you... That's what made it awkward. They did care. They didn't want to file our alternate. It's up to us for sure, but the question of how much trouble it's worth to tell them to stuff it, verses just choosing an alternate that'...

Alternate Minima and ETAs

We had a weird scenario today when filing a flight plan by telephone. FIC indicated to us that our alternate airport did not meet the legal minima because it was still below minimums at the time of arrival... at our destination. If we did a missed approach at the destination and flew the 2 hours bac...
