Re: Best place for multi IFR training??

Really? It’s a non event as it should be. It is a non event, if you've done it before. If you are used to flying everytying with a GPS overlay or ILS, and then your GPS craps out and you only have an NDB approach available, I'm pretty sure it will be a memorable event. You can divert to a place wit...

Re: Best place for multi IFR training??

[/quote] Based on rumours: no. Even NDB interceptions are getting rare these days. Not just at Cornwall by the way, other places as well.

Re: All French Job ads

Lol well seeing as how aviation is ruled by the English language. Maybe if I was looking on a French website for a job in France I would expect it, but we are still in Canada and no reason we need to have French only ads. Just my two cents not like it’s worth crap Very interesting... As a Canadian ...

Re: Night Rating - You Should Think About It!

The worst on an overcast night IMO is rockcliff, runway 9. I believe they are fixing it but only the first half of the runway is lighted. Lift off and all references immediately disappear, and headed for the dark river. Nasty. Worse than a day IMC takeoff, at least to my limits. Such a takeoff isn'...

Re: Air Canada Rouge EGPWS warning at Huatulco

I assume you are excluding "cleared for AN approach" -- like in N Ontario Uc Airports in that ATC prohibition. My point was that whether or not they were cleared for the/an approach had nothing to do with it. ATC shouldn't be giving clearance to descend to below IFR minimum altitude at pilot's disc...

Re: Flying to Alaska

Although the coastal route is absolutely beautiful, it presents its own set of challenges WX wise.

Re: new to float operation. need some information please

I would prefer a low time pilot for a small private operation like a fishing lodge for the simple reason I would not have to un-train bad habits that a lot of pilots develop, low time pilots can be trained to fly the way I would want them to fly my airplane. And you speak from “experience”? You are...

Re: Can you wobble while landing?

The main pumps on lots of Beavers are the originals and 60 years old so yes they do quit. Lots now have the STC for the electric pump as a third backup. The wobble pump is kind of low on the centre console which makes it difficult to look out over the engine to land while the other had is down by y...

You're claiming they never do? Plenty of evidence to the contrary. Of course some AC FA's would have trouble getting out the emergency door. Good rant.

Re: Vancouver downtown apartment rental vacancies?

YVR is brutally expensive to live in.

The commute even from White Rock can be a frustrating experience even at the best of times.

If I were you, I'd look into shared accoms in Steveston. It's a gem of a community!
