Re: Best Flight School in the Vancouver Area

It's a brand new 7ECA Citabria at PFC. It has not moved much since it has been with them. I don't know what they charge for it. It is the most restrictive school on the field with the most rules. I would be surprised if they offered aerobatic training, or allowed it. At the other school I was teach...

Re: Best Flight School in the Vancouver Area

There are two Citabrias on this field now. Pro's aircraft has one and a tenth very experienced instructors on theirs. PFC has one as well though I do not know the experience level of the instructor(s) there. Tailwheel training is something that demands a lot of experience in flying real aeroplanes ...

Re: Best Flight School in the Vancouver Area

merits of this 'training' aeroplane and that for flight training It really doesn't matter which (nosewheel) aircraft you learn to fly on. IMHO you develop better stick & rudders skills on a (less forgiving) tailwheel aircraft, but that's a moot point - you can't get ab initio training on tailwheel ...

Borek after Instructing?

Hello Everyone, I am currently about 1/2-2/3s of the way through my instructor rating. I have always wanted to instruct and as soon as I start instructing I play to get my aerobatic instructor rating and do that as well (although not full time). In adition to the instructing I have always wanted to ...

Re: Military Twotters on floats?

A guy I flew with this summer, flew the twotter for a year or two. He was an ex-F104 and ex-Snowbird guy and said that flying the twotter where they went in and out of was some of the more enjoyable flying he did.

I am just about to finnish of my instructor rating there and have been REALLY pleased with them. T...

Re: The magic $100/hr or less airplane?

Sorry I did not realize you wanted night hours (I cant read). You should call up Brad, he is an AME from Jan's (forget the company name) shop. He has a 150 he rebuilt (really nice condition) that he wants to block time.

Re: The magic $100/hr or less airplane?

For $75 an hour you can rent Turbi from Delta Air Park. Its a fun enough machine you fly solo from the back seat, and it has a full canopy. Its a low wing, tail wheel aircraft. In order to fly it you have to join the club which is around 100 dollars though. After 4 hours you are already below 100 an...

Re: IFR renewal

I have heard you can do complete IFR renewals in a SIM at Pacific Flying Club at the Boundary Bay Airport (ZBB). You should definatly give them a look, while it will be out of your way the cost savings of doing it on the sim may be worth the extra travel/living expenses. Also Pro IFR also at ZBB is ...

Whats up with the passport style license? Is there a proto-type out that we can see? It is going to have a photo on it correct? When are they planning on getting this to us?

Re: Oshkosh

I went in 2005 and it was one of the best aviation experiences I have ever been a part of. I live in BC so it is hard for me to get out there, but I plan to fly-in in 2009 if I can. If you can spend a whole week there. If you go for a weekend you will miss 90% of everything.

Cheers,
Chris

Re: Heathrow protest: Airport Security = Farce

This is definatly a security concern. I think they should have have gotten the fire truck and blasted the nut jobs off. Either that or the de icing truck and used the glycol.

The part that gets me is, he's paid 250,000 POUNDS/yr???? For what? Obviously not flyby's.

Good grief, that's a lot of dough.

The reason he was getting paid so much is he was CX's chief pilot.
