Re: The ten types of AME. :)

Pretty sure there is a tool collector in Pitt Meadows, at least that would explain why I keep seeing the Snap On truck parked, in the exact same spot, every couple of weeks. :lol:

Re: Super Dave gets wings clipped...

I wonder, if the complaints may have originated from one of the other on field "personalities", who likes to play Chilliwack tower on a hand-held radio, or while in the circuit...

Anyone who visits regularly, probably knows whom I speak of.

Re: Super Dave gets wings clipped...

Tribunal time, by chance? I think we all used to know someone 'round these parts that could offer Dave a piece of advice... :wink:

And if Chilliwack is no longer welcoming to Dave, he should shuffle over to Abbotsford, or Pitt Meadows, I'm sure they'd be happy to host him.

Re: Aerobatics flight training

No idea about Vancouver Island. But, there are a few on the mainland. Glacier Air in Squamish has a Super Decathlon (not sure if Colette is doing training these days, but Michael P. is). Pro IFR, has an older Citabria, Jodi R. does aerobatic training - not sure if they use the Citabria for it. CFC h...

Re: Overdue Cargo Airplane Bound for CYXS

And this is exactly why I wont post my thoughts here...... What's wrong with news media using AvCanada as a resource? They correctly identified people here as "enthusiasts" on an "online forum". They didn't call people here experts. It is wrong, because as usual, the media is willing to report anyt...

Re: Pilot training in Vancouver

Do not, I repeat, do not, pick a flight school, based solely on the size of its fleet, shiny photos or avionics, or its lovely website. Go to each and every flight school possible, at each airport you can easily get to, and ask questions, meet instructors, talk to current students, and do some intro...

Re: Overdue Cargo Airplane Bound for CYXS

Pretty lousy day to be out, with moderate to severe turbulence up and down the Coast. And, the moderate to severe icing, from around 3000' - 14,000', again along the Coast.

Re: Both pilots incapacitated by turbulence

Your tolerance for turbulence, depends on how often you fly, and how often you encounter turbulence. I haven't flow much in the past few months, so getting bounced around even a little becomes somewhat uncomfortable. But, when I fly much more regularly, I do not notice it. Sort of the same with G to...

Re: Summit Air Buffalo - Red Cross?

The days of Canadians being allowed to build planes and trains to help the british company owners improve the area for those living here are over.

Re: Pre-Solo Nervousness?

And this is why it is a good idea for instructors to not tell students in advance that they will be soloing. Let them know they are getting close - besides students know that when circuit training starts, the next step is solo. Go out with the intention of doing more dual circuits, and when it is cl...

Re: How many hours to get PPL

Six months, and 58.3 hours later, the PPL was done, flying out of CZBB. Started September 2011, done February 2012. Odds are I could have finished in fewer than six months, if I had been flying in the Spring/Summer, but Fall and Winter flying was a great experience, wind and turbulence, precipitatio...
