ATPL Study Group

Looking to start an ATPL Study group. I live in Edmonton but figured we could meet on zoom or something like that. So anywhere in Canada really could join. PM if interested.

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Let's get Harper back! Ha ha... Is the Conservative plan still to sell our children's country to corrupt foreigners and deplete our children's resources, destroy the environment for the profit of individuals, build new prisons for minority groups? We just had an election October 19, 2019 and the vo...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

The only way out of this massive debt we incurred is to get the economy moving again. An example is the energy sector. Like it or not Canada is a resource based economy. That is what pays the bills for many levels of government or at least a sizeable portion. This is not an opinion but a fact. Energ...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Ill take triple digit oil prices any day of the week lol. If that happens we can actually start paying off some of the federal and provincial debt. Jokes aside food prices are already reported to be going up without question.

Re: ATPL Application process tips

Anyone operating under 604 regulation here? I did a PCC 10 months ago, Transport Canada refuse to give me my ATPL because I did not have a PPC in the last 12 months and say that a PCC is not valid for the application. The requirements for a PPC and PCC are basicly the same since Transport took over...

Re: NavCanada Aiming to Transition 6 Towers to FSS

YMM makes sense sadly. All the oil strips (Firebag, Albian, Horizon) are class E and run just fine. YMM doesn't see many movements these days anyway so class E would probably work. Also look at some of the comments on that CBC article. Absolutely hilarious how clueless people are. Just goes to show ...

Re: Air Canada is in bad shape

Here's an idea, AC. Offer a lifetime unlimited -- or even with max miles per year -- flight pass, with fair upgrade options to business class. It's been done before. The right price, people might bite. American Airlines did this back in the day. It was a financial disaster, AC would know this.

Re: Are FTU's Busy?

We have a full load of students at my FTU. Honestly aside from being closed for 5 weeks at the beginning of all this nothing has changed. We still have easily over 75% of our students wanting to go all the way (CPL MIFR etc) and about 25% just for the PPL

Re: Electric powered Dash 8 is coming

The other issue with battery's I imagine would be the weight. A full and empty battery weighs the same. Hydrogen is probably the future. Once they can figure out to make it economically viable as others here pointed out.

I think so. There is nothing in the CARs I see saying the rides got to be within x amount of time.

Class II to Class I

Is there a period of time you must be a class 2 before going for a class 1? Or could you do a class II ride then a 1 ride a few days after if you were ready?

Re: Will the industry ever be fully back?

Just my opinion but I don’t think aviation really ever recovered from 9/11. By recovery, I mean a return to original wage and working conditions prior to the crisis. Aviation just came out of an unprecedented hiring spree.. contracts were signed during this period that denuded wage and working cond...
