Re: YVR in person assessment (Jan 2020)

I'd kind of like an explanation from Nav Canada as to why they've done that. NAV Canada is a company, and like any company that hires, they need not explain to the public how they make certain business decisions on the hiring front. I wouldn't expect any company to tell me why they aren't running h...

Re: Transferring through terminal zones

VFR aircraft are guaranteed a minimum of 4500' on those routes. Don't accept 2500' across the straight, there's no need. That battle was fought and won about 25 years ago. This is all traffic permitting. Service is always provided first to IFR aircraft - VFR itinerants are lower on the list. You ca...

Re: YYZ Assessment (Feb 2019)

Only a few standby are made, just in case a confirmed says no.

Some courses have a few from the standby list, some have none. Your odds basically depend on how eager the people with a confirmed offer are.

Re: YVR Training Offers

standby is exactly that - if someone doesn't want the seat, then they start looking at the standby list. A course likely won't start unless it's full.

IFR started a few days ago, so this will be VFR. FSS train in Kamloops now.

Re: YYZ Assessment (Feb 2019)

I did the in person assessment in vancouver in jan
If I’m not mistaken, I heard someone say their format was FEAST in late February. Could’ve been describing it wrong. You might’ve been the last to take the old assessment.

It won’t exclude you. They’re looking for aptitude so if you have what it takes, they’ll try. Keep in mind that they’re so specific as to what they’re looking for that if you have it, they won’t care about external factors. You will need support regardless of whether you have kids.

Re: How is VFR FIR assigned?

I believe you can put your name on a bid list two years after qualification. If it is a popular tower, you’ll be competing with controllers who have more seniority than you.

Re: How is VFR FIR assigned?

For national courses, the FIR you are assigned is based on operational needs of the company. You would be told beforehand if it is a national course. Yes could be sent across the country if there was a need for that - no, they most likely won't tell you where in the country you're going until the en...

The math you need to know for FEAST is how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. All in single digits too.

Re: Ita exam questions

Use Quizlet to help. You can even find flashcards others made online but use those with a grain of salt. Try to find associations and anything you can use as memory aids. Airlines and destination are especially important for IFR, much more so than VFR. Once you hit your specialty, you'll have even m...

Re: Newbie questions regarding IFR vs VFR

Hmm. One other question, and I'd like input from anyone: What do you think differentiates someone who would fit better as an IFR or VFR? Like, is it a personality difference? Or the way they communicate? Or the way they handle stress? Or a mathematical mind vs an artist mind? Or? The way it was exp...

If so, how long until we are actually notified of that? Thanks. If it’s anything like before, moving onto the next step keeps your application valid for 18 months. If you are loaded onto a class, you will find out a few months before your start date. An IFR and VFR class started a few months ago, a...

It sounds like a VFR class started in September so an April start is unlikely. Classes do not run back to back like that.

Questions 1. For those interviewing right now, have they mentioned when the next VFR training session is? 2. Has anybody gotten the green light on the whole process but then never got an offer? If they said July, I'd go with that. They are generally honest about start dates, though things are alway...

Combo of short answers, multiple choice, matching, labeling. No long answers. The reviews on the ITA course are not exceptionally useful nor sufficient.

You’re too early in the process to read anything at all, but if you’re so inclined to do something, reading From the Ground Up will not hurt you. Doing that having just passed the online testing is too early; I’d say it’s more of a thing to do after you pass the in-person interview and get streamed ...
