Not true. I tested positive while my other colleagues did not.
Let us know if you die or not, please.

Re: Got kicked out of my flight school today

What school is this?? Or, if you aren't comfortable sharing that info, what province you in? That is a poor way to treat a mistake! Stuff breaks. It's your life and experience that matter. As has been previously mentioned, you're going to be a better pilot because of this mistake. It's not a reason ...

Re: Push

It should be your instinct to push the yoke forwards in that situation. Americans need to update their PPL training syllabus to include full stalls/ full stall recovery. Then this "how do you recover from a stall/spin scenario??" phenomena would disappear...... Somewhat.....

Re: Should I do CPL just for the skills if I only want to fly privately?

I would recommend doing the CPL training, especially if you are going to be doing your Instrument Rating in the near future. You need 40 hours of instrument time to qualify for the IR. As of right now, you likely have 5ish. The way I describe the levels of instrument training between PPL,CPL, and IR...

Re: Coolest Airports in the Prairies

Lucky Lake, SK. I flew there with the intention of walking 400 meters to the gas station to fill up my jerry cans, and got picked up about 40 yards down the road! Lucky Lake, indeed :)

Re: Full Time Ground School?

Kinda hard to fast track what is intended to take 40 hours.

Stick with the online ground school. You can blast through it all in less than 3 weeks if you're devoted. Or if you have crappy weather and can't go flying anyways. Or if you have no friends (like me :) )

Re: Shortage of Military pilots

Well, if they come lookin' to lure me out of retirement, I'm putting my foot down! Signing bonus, minimum $150000/yr plus allowances, 30 days (working days) holidays, and only work between ten and two with an hour off at noon for lunch and a nap... :smt040 Sooooo, a typical government job, then???

Re: Whats the best headset to get

You can use the poor man's noise cancelling: ear plugs. I use a David Clark when I'm flight instructing, with ear plugs. For the 6+ hours a day sitting behind an engine, the earplugs eliminated my headaches. I might have a small head, because I've never felt that they were a vice on my noggin. Even ...

Re: Use caution walking in potential jetblast area

True, I am too quick to judge sometimes.
And, to be honest, this still happens to me every once in a while when I get distracted (not blowing people over, but losing momentum in a turn and having to give 'er guns to finish the turns. I've never flown a jet before).

Re: X-Country in PTR

I'm not quoting anything here, I'm just going off of what I know. If you mark X/C time down, you need to support that time with evidence that you did indeed do a x/c. For example, the "airports visited" section should have more than just your home base in it. As well, you need to show in your exerci...

Re: Use caution walking in potential jetblast area

That pilot could have also gotten a bit more momentum before turning so that he wouldn't need to blast the power to finish his turn... Or kept a bit of power in at the start... A few options. Interesting to see that this type of turn happens on military jets as well as 152's. Goes to show that the l...
