Insurance question

If I have my own airplane and want a class 3 instructor to come and fly with me for training, do I need special insurance? Also what if a friend has a better equipped plane, and is willing to let me bump out 5 hours with a class 3 in it, do they require special insurance?

Re: How long can you wait after completing your cpl to file the paperwork

The reason I did it was because I tested at 150 hours but the school wanted me to finish my other ratings before time building, my school really sucked and it took over 2 months to get my multi because of "booking issues" after taking 2 months and finishing my multi they told me I had to wait anothe...

Re: CPL instrument time?

Alright so I will have to bump out another 5 then taking my total to 25. Wish they made a better syllabus but I'll try and see if anywhere still has a sim open.

Can you train with a class 3 instructor in a experimental aircraft?

For example, if I were to buy my own experimental, something like a rans s6 or kitfox/avid. Would I be able to do my PPL training in it assuming I hire a class 3 instructor, and if I ever go for a cpl could I use the hours gained in that aircraft towards my license?

Re: Student loans by province

Well after you get your PPL you can apply for student loans, 15k for each component of fixed wing. So I applied for the Max amount for 4 components and ended up getting $57,995.

Re: North Wright Airways 2019/2020

The only people doing rotational schedules are direct-entry captains. Everyone else is on a 50 weeks on / 2 weeks off schedule. To answer your questions: The last I heard, it was only a few months on the ramp before being trained on the 206/207. I would assume at least six months before being train...
