Re: Incorporating a partnership

Maybe there is some case law on the subject. Yes. The Wyer case. Two friends quit flying because of a $25,000 fine where there data plate mounting didn’t meet the requirements of 201.01 (2) and they forgot to notify the minister in writing (201.01 (3) ) of the inability of the data plate to be moun...

Re: One List

Even without the one list, you’re seeing a mainline jet seat before the age of 25. Are you kidding me? I don't know of anyone who got on at Encore before 23. Even then, I only know ONE person who started flying when they were 16 and were lucky enough to be able to afford to fly and gain experience ...

Re: 2020 Hiring

I’ve heard plenty of conflicting information about OTS hiring in regards to seniority if hired directly to WestJet without a stint at Encore. If hired tomorrow with a Wj seniority number, are new pilots behind every Encore pilot hired before them? Just the pilots hired prior to the infamous NO OneL...

Re: Starting PPL - Night VFR + Multi IFR immediately after?

Further to photofly's point, I would focus on your PPL and then get really comfortable doing cross countries. You will learn far more about flying doing long cross countries than you will doing anything else. IFR is kind of useless for most cases for reasons explained above. When I'm in a small plan...

It starts in the 60s but you can negotiate higher based on experience. You'll have to sign a bond. You'll be assigned a base, and expect it to be northern. Don't count on Edmonton or Calgary. Benefits package is good. Pretty well 100% everything. Pilots still sign bonds? Why? With enough time to ge...

Re: Low timer insurance

For a simple aircraft, your insurance won't be much more. I have a 150 and paid ~$850/yr for a $20k hull value. I added a student pilot to the insurance and it cost $100 extra.

Re: Renting out a private aircraft?

PilotDAR and Photofly have pretty much addressed what I was going to write. I have a couple points to add: 1) There's nothing legally stopping you from renting out your airplane. There is, however, an issue with you renting out your airplane and you being PIC. That's called a commercial air service....

Re: Should it take 2 years to get a Private? Thank you Sault College. :(

Students should complain to the Superintendent of the Private Career Colleges Authority. He can force the college to refund fees, and ultimately to shut down the school. For Sault? I don't think so. Government funded colleges (ie. Sault, Confed, etc) are exempt from the Private Career Colleges Act....

Re: Re registering grass strip.

The rules surrounding aerodrome registration have changed significantly over the last few years. Due to pressure from municipalities, it is now necessary to do public consultations and environmental assessment prior to registration, depending on the location. http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p2/2016/2...

If you read the decision, you will see that the outcome turned exclusively on legal procedure, not on the merits of the underlying issues—procedure before the Commission in how they assess the complaints before them.
