Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

1. no 2. no 3. 605 Did you mean to say 604? 605 is just basic aircraft requirements. Well, you’d operate subject to all the applicable CARS Of course, but being just a C210, I’ll save you the time to let you know that, among other sections, CARS604 and all CARS700 series would not apply. So it’s as...

Re: Accommodations

FYI, for quick more economical overnight, Fairfield by marriott has a shell FBO rate usually around $120 per night and free parking. Okanagan grand is much nicer, for sure, but Fairfield is just fine. Decent restaurants super close as well.

Re: How to get an RNAV at an airport

Couple years ago we looked at getting a new rnav approach into an airport in uncontrolled airspace, but About 25nm from a class d ifr airport, and it was going to be about 30k.

Re: Lear Jet Simulator

I don’t believe so.

Even bombardier training has their Lear 75 sim in Dallas.
Flightsafety is tucson, Atlanta, wichita.
Simcom in orlando.

Thats all that i can think of.

Re: A220 cruising altitude

Is this temporary? Or part of original design? Seems crazy to me that a FBW FADEC aircraft has autothrottle issues. This is not new technology. anyone in the know care to comment?

Re: Swoop pay

92k for first year capt? Who the hell is taking these positions? You just have to shake your head. Anyone that takes such a position is personally partially responsible for the downfall of this industry.

Re: SkyService Lear Damaged

Not a judgement on the crew or anything, just a possibility: accidentally hit the brakes during pushback? Or feet on the brakes when the tug starts to push? Really have to fight to overcome well ingrained reflexes. Pushback for corporate jet crews is a rare thing, especially in the smaller jets. I a...

Re: Great news for the Global 7500...

My understanding is the first production aircraft (the one that broke the record) was delivered internally to the flight demo department at Bombardier. It is not an experimental aircraft. If you want to get to the real nitty gritty, it was actually delivered to a leasing company and bombardier leas...

Canadian regulations allow it for private operators. I’ll assume this plane was US registered. Does FAR part 91 (private operators) even have duty limits? I don’t think they do. SOR/2014-131, s. 18; SOR/2018-269, s. 18. EDIT: is that the actual picture of the airplane in the first post? If so it lo...

Re: YYZ SLOTS.....Again

Agreed, pretty standard..except for the reservation system. I can arrange slots in Zurich or Glasgow weeks in advance. But for Pearson, I have to wait until 72 hrs prior? So the aircraft owner gets a disadvantage for being organized and planning trips further ahead? I see what Pearson is doing. They...

Re: London Air Services 2018

There’s very little turnover on the 605/604 side. So I can’t give a number that really means anything. It’s just luck and timing. Some guys are happy staying Lear capt forever, and others are keen on the chally. The chally Crew is fairly young, so not really any retirements coming anytime soon, and ...

Lear capt 80k I think. Agreed, it’s not industry top pay. But it’s a good place to work. If you don’t have a burning desire to be in Vancouver though, don’t bother. Most folks there have either been in Vancouver for years, hence mitigating the cost factor, or really want to be here because they love...

Re: Corporate Question

Corporate operators look for candidates with relevant experience and decent total time. If you eventually want to be a captain in the corporate world I’d highly recommend getting some jet time in the charter world first. So the question is, how do you get to a biz jet charter operator?
