Re: Ontario Stay Home Order coming in.

When Election Day comes, almost all of those mail in votes are for Biden. If these events don’t make you at least mildly curious, you are either hyper-partisan or a bit dim. Yes, mail in voters skewed Biden so it must be fraudulent. You know what, I have an ice cream truck and the sales skew higher...

None. I speak from experience.

A touch-and-go also counts as a landing, so I echo the suggestion above of requesting low approaches instead, if there actually is no need to land there (i.e. sightseeing).

Re: Free PPL Ground School

Very cool! Curious... how do you certify that the student actually knows the material when you write the recommend? He doesn’t write the recommend; the student’s instructor does. I was referring to this text on the website... Contact me at the email address below for certification of your ground sc...

Re: Life Insurance

Seriously my financial advisor, who is not an insurance guy, did recommend one thing: "get your insurance before you get your license, everything will change after that". Interesting... I would've assumed that even if insurance were in place prior to your licenses, you'd still have to dis...

Re: Life Insurance

Thanks all. Issue is that I will be working as a flight instructor so SEL/GA type of aircraft only - most definitely will not qualify as "scheduled" operations. I went ahead with the RBC application. I'm supposed to have a phone interview in the next few days. Let's see if it goes through.

Life Insurance

Looking for recommendations as to where to buy life insurance from? I know that RBC asks further questions the moment you mention that you fly planes... Is that pretty much standard operation no matter which vendor the policy is bought from?

Re: Looking back at the airspeed should be instinctive

Check your airspeed on a regular basis in the pattern....and climbout. I bet we would be surprised how often it doesn't happen for a long while.Monitor your airspeed on a regular basis when maneuvering. Monitor your airspeed on a regular basis when maneuvering.

Re: Looking back at the airspeed should be instinctive

So now you think I am lying when I say that a pilot should ensure that they monitor their airspeed during distraction. Sir, we both know that that strawman isn't what is being argued here. Airspeed, of course, must be monitored and is critical. No one ever claimed otherwise. It's the method at whic...

Biggest takeaway from this thread is repeating your point over and over and over again eventually tires out everyone else, making your point eventually correct... not because it is, but because everyone else tired out. That is the whole point(although all instructors should be doing it). https://ww...

Re: Looking back at the airspeed should be instinctive

Looking at the ASI during a slip will just cause you to read (and maybe react to) an inaccurate airspeed reading, especially if you only have one static port.

Re: Looking back at the airspeed should be instinctive

Here are my two cents as a very green instructor. When working in the pattern, I can perceive pitch changes that the student inadvertently makes which then causes a change on the airspeed indicator. There definitely is a delay.. say around one second, from the time of the pitch change to the time it...

Re: Is being a Commercial Pilot in Canada worth it?

Good point, everyone has their bias though that does work both ways :smt040 Absolutely. Ask 10 people what "worth it" means and I bet you'd get 10 different answers. Worth it in terms of what? Money? Schedule? Job satisfaction? QOL? There are so many variables that this type of question r...

Do you think that because you've essentially given up being a pilot, that your views on being a pilot, may now be biased?

Don't go up on an empty stomach but don't go up on a full one either. With time, you'll find where the sweet spot is.
