Why don't you just quit your job and do this full time? Seems you have the drive to make it work on a full time basis?

Re: Weekend Feild Annuals

You're saying I can be dismissed for competing with my employer? I dont have a noncompete clause, what's the point of a noncompete if you can be canned anyway? There are many reasons my employer would want to keep me around but like you said, things change. There must be a way to protect myself wit...

Re: Weekend Feild Annuals

That's correct. My worry would be insurance. If he does weekend annuals, insurance won't be worth it to work 1-2 days per week on this, so he'd be accepting liability on himself. If he screws up on his employer's dime, his employer's insurance will cover.

Re: Weekend Feild Annuals

Incorporating means you're insulated from personal liability (if you do it right) i.e. you won't lose your house if you get sued for poor work. But you'll end up paying more for accountancy. That's true, but unfortunately he's signing off the airplane in his personal capacity so his corporation, an...

Re: Question about Aviation Medical

What region did you send it to?

I would email the region and ask for an electronic copy to be sent to you. https://tc.canada.ca/en/aviation/civil- ... ts-offices

Like said above. They are very backed up. I'm thinking 3-6 months.

Re: Interesting airplane ads

Its too much but not out to lunch. Those planes command a pretty penny. New paint and avionics. The A185 is way better than the original 185's.

Maybe $200k USD?

Re: O-200 cold weather starting

This is quite undesirable as running the engine significantly above idle right after start means the main bearings will not be getting full even oil pressure and so premature bearing wear is likely Agreed. I've only had to do it a couple times. The POH does mention something about that. It's only f...

Re: Investing strategies for the commercial pilot?

My $0.02. Agree with Airway 100%. WRT mortgage, it is more a motivational factor for learning habits. It is a big boost to pay off a mortgage. The only thing is that once paid off, it's easy to say, I deserve it, I'm buying an airplane (or 2). Dividend stocks. If the dividend is the only thing holdi...

O-200 cold weather starting

I have a C150 with O-200 that has a difficult time starting in the cold weather (-25C). I think all O-200 are like this, but this is the only C150 that I have any time on. Even when plugged in (oil pan heater) + a buddy heater, the engine only starts with difficulty. The core temperature is around 1...

I think they're going to be bankrupt before the end of the year. I remember 20 years ago I worked for an air ambulance outfit. 2 new companies started- the first with expensive airplanes, big investors, free boxed lunches for crews, etc. The second flew old PC-12, and operated on a shoe string.
