Re: Foriegn qualified AME job in Canada

There is only a handful or less of companies that use the Airbus 320 and 330 so it shouldn't be to hard to find them. Any chance you worked on the Beech series or De Havilland or Cessna, even Canadair? Something else you have to contend with is the stories of the Pilots from your country falsifing l...

Re: AME M1 average apprenticeship length

There is no definite answer to your question. Depends how long it takes to fill out your log book, if you can stay employed at the same place long enough to do this and does the company have the machines which will allow you to complete all the tasks. If I believe you can write the exam then and whe...

Re: Paint removal

I've saw plexiglass windows destroyed during paint stripping, and not on a150 but C550s and not your small shop but at the big pro paint shops. If you want to do it yourself its not impossible but do some research. Pros will mask it off and hit it with a spray gun, you might do a few sq. ft. at a ti...

Cessna SkyCourier

I see the Cessna SkyCourier did its first flight a few days ago. It has PT6-65s so lots of power. What are peoples thought on this machine, will it replace the DHC-6 in some operations?

Re: Advice for a high school student?

Did you consider Northern Lights in Dawson Creek? If you're in Edmonton this is a lot closer to home. I really don't think the College matters in the long run, you do the classes put your time in and write the final exams for your licence. Though I have hears BCIT had a reputation as a puppy mill bu...

Re: Red Chris Mine fly in

Thanks for the replies, I got into aviation instead of going underground like a lot of my friends but still dabble in penny gold stocks and have been reading about Red Chris for quite a while. I inquired as my Son may be going there to work, thanks again for the info.

Re: Red Chris Mine fly in

Thanks, I was thinking they probably did. With up to 500 workers doing a 2 week rotation I'd imagine its a busy charter, wondering if the Dease airport can take a -8 or Dornier?

Red Chris Mine fly in

Recently reading about the Red Chris Mine in Northern B.C and see they fly in to Dease Lake airport then drive to the mine site. Does anyone have info on who does this flying and what machines they use. Thanks.

Re: Am I be able to buy some retired engine or aircraft from this website?

Were you thinking you can make a running engine? When an engine part is deemed US or BER it is cut or bent so as to make it unable to use again. The last thing anyone wants is these parts ending up in a serviceable engine. The used to send the parts back as is but no more. I heard this story at Prat...

What happens if you don't finish your 48 months? I've gone in for licence renewal and have been issued an interim till the real plastic shows up in the mail but your scenario I'm not sure of. Let us know if TC issues you one.

I agree with the clueless response, must have been from a pilot, ha ha, but back to the original post. Overseas jobs usually require experience so for you to get a Dubai job you would probably need some experience and time on type or at least factory training. BUT a lot of these jobs fill by who you...
