Re: Airman vs. Airperson Discussion/Poll

I'm old fashioned so Postman sounds normal. Post person sounds like someone who lacks intellect trying to over compensate for gender bias. This silly stuff has gone on long enough to that letter carrier seems better. The best is those titles to make people feel better about their job that are also g...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

I'm calling shenanigans on the guy who says his dog flew the sim.

That's why we're annoyed by your constant reminders of your sim experience. A complete and total lack of humility.
Do you have any idea of the cost of buying time in a level D sim?

Re: Recession incoming

An adult used to be someone over 18. Now I actually have met one of my daughter's 16 year old friends that seems ok. My wife has a friend and she has two more but... Have you spoken to many people from 20 to mid 30 years old? Hopefully I just kept meeting odd ones but they were like little kids. Any...

Re: Recession incoming

The Tim Hortons my wife and her work pals go to is extra busy this week because the coffee shop one floor down closed. It was called Starbucks or something. I guess they closed four YYC locations without any warning.

Re: Is my vision too bad to be a pilot in Canada?

Phone them and ask directly, "These are my vision stats. Do you think I could get a Cat. 1 medical?"

Most of them are willing to answer a few questions over the phone. Every Transport Doctor I have ever seen was there to help and willing to answer my questions.

Drive around Calgary, things are somewhat ok but it's slowing down. I took little beef beef to a birthday party for his best bud.

Re: Recession incoming

What I meant by the iceberg quip is we import too much. It is extremely difficult to find things made in Canada. Ok fine I don't need everything to be from here but it would be nice to be able to buy somethings. I used to buy blue denim trousers made in Montreal. Ok so bad example because some feel ...

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

I am a really bad example for this specific thing though. I flew from coast to coast one year but that year was almost thirty years ago so I would just go do a new one. Having said that, in my opinion, if a person flew 300 nautical miles within a year of applying it should just count, there should b...

Re: Diamond Vs Cessna Flight Training

Can you tell if you are flying a low wing versus a high wing by the way it reacts to control movements? Maybe if I flew them one right after another but I can't honestly say the Warrior II felt different to me. It definitely stalled faster and more abruptly. The 172 is more forgiving of being slopp...

Weird stuff just happens too often. Sometimes it depends who you talk to at a government office. They are just not 100% consistent. Income tax is odd like that too. Some people write things off and others get told no way. My opthamologist claims he has re-attatched retinas on several commercial pilo...

Re: Commercial Solo Time Requirement

I have to say it would not surprise me in the least for TC to demand I do a specific 300nm trip. Never mind I have flown thousands of miles. "Sorry we want you to do one assigned by an instructor." Or who knows what. I'd just suck it up and go but I don"t blame anyone with more patience trying to ge...

Re: Diamond Vs Cessna Flight Training

Some claim the Diamonds are a bit more difficult to fly and land well. Maybe, but if you fly a 172 properly, I'm pretty sure the transition will be no big deal. If you end up being a guy that doesn't use the foot rests, transition to a Diamond might be a bit worse. I like 172s but they are easy to f...

That's kind of scary. I suspect the guy was just ignorant of needing to get permission. I understand Aviatard being reluctant to just sign off since I would definately not want to anger TC or worse get a reputation as being willing to sign things off leading to future TC. Battles. I hope he gets som...

Thank you. I'm pretty pleased I can see again and even more so to finally get back to flying in a couple of planes for 2019, hopefully I can continue this time. That one example started off kind of specific. I should have wrote "Springbank outer tower..." I replaced 6000' and information delta with ...

Yeah that sounds like they are less than satisfied with something.

I'm not worried but I also can't just tour around missing calls in Class C. They don't like that. And fair enough it's pretty high density there these days.

As horrible as we all know instructors are I just met and flew with yet another one that instead of causing me to question why I am paying them to ride around with me. I am inspired to improve my skills again. And that is impressive since I am bit emo and have advanced add.
