Re: Working while on CEWS

You're not on CEWS, the company is. It's a subsidy for the business not the individual. There are no restrictions on working. As far as you're concerned, you're receiving a paycheck from the company.

Re: Piper Seneca in high altitudes?

The RV-10 is known to have mach issues, especially with bigger engines, at high altitudes. It wouldn't surprise me if it could happen to other piston aircraft, which generally don't fly that fast.

If we were only allowed to have this. https://www.uavionix.com.au/news/skyecho2-portable-adsb-inout-now-approved-in-australia/ I'm genuinely shocked CASA approved that.

Re: Seneca or Confederation College

I wouldn't even consider the Jazz program being a deciding factor with the state of the industry. They have to recall everyone laid off before they can start hiring, and that could be years. It will probably go back to 1 or 2 college grads per year being hired, instead of the free-for-all its been a...

Re: ADS-B equipment

I was going to equip the skybeacon 978 on my friends 172, but I think I'll wait for the tailbeacon X now. more expensive and you need to buy a control head, but it seems to be the most logical solution and should work in Canada. You also get a brand new mode S transponder as part of the package and ...

Re: Any recent conversions from TC ATPL to US FAA ATP?

Gliem is the best study tool. The ATP-CTP course is a completion, not a test so nothing to study for it.

Re: Airplane stuck in the states

molsonb So, now it’s down to duties and taxes. The importation of your aircraft. With your paperwork in order you should be good to go. Before that though, you’ll have to convince US Customs before you board a flight to America that your entry into the States is ‘essential’. Be sceptical before you...

Re: Anyone lost faith in Porter's restart

Private equity, they're going to take their time instead of bleeding cash. Very little debt, so they don't have the worry about servicing that while they're shut down. Other operators are bleeding cash in the tune of millions per day. They owned almost every aircraft outright before the shutdown. If...

Re: How to Move Forward

Now is not the time to look down upon a “pilot apprentice” position. The pilots who worked ramp jobs were the first ones to get seats when things start moving again and a lot better than retail being completely out of the industry. I’ll look down on them. For the last 4 years I was like finally... ...

Re: info on layoffs and contract employees I see

We're all federal employees, so the Canada Labour Code and common law prevail, not Ontario's law or otherwise. Employees with union contracts are not likely owed anything outside of their contract provisions, and generally temporary layoffs are authorized in the CBA. Non union employees generally ha...

Re: Post-Simulator Quarantine?

You can do recurrent training in Canada. So, considering the quarantine aspect of the exercise, why would any Canadian pilot HAVE TO go to the states for recurrent? I can just imagine a 14 day quarantine, followed by training, then another 14 day quarantine when you get home. Makes a lot of sense h...

Re: Letter of Proficiency

I essentially followed a PPL check ride in terms of air work last time I did one. I made up a form, signed it, and attached some sort of letter for the insurance company. I'm not a flight instructor, but they had no issue with it.

Re: Private aircraft import

You also have the option, though it may not be the most prudent, to keep the plane N registered, pay a trust company a fee to hold the ownership, and then just pay GST/HST upon import. A Canadian AMO (not just a mechanic) can maintain the plane, save for annual inspections. There are plenty of A&...

Re: Amputee PPL

I know a guy who is missing a leg who got a Cat 1. I think there was some run around, but he eventually got it. I'd recommend Dr. Gilmore for any less than regular medical issues. He knows who to talk to to make it work (if it can).
