Would you build the time flying an airplane and staying home till you get the gig or move away from the family and find temporary flying job b further away? Ideas or thoughts? Th...

Re: Hired with less than 1000 TT ?

Yes they are hiring below 1000TT.. I know some guys with just under that whom did the sim and interview around 600 and offer later on. Mind you they were through the college programs. So I assume they will only hire guys under 1000 if they went through the college program and not offer this to guys...

Re: tablet on the CPL checkride?

Like any part of an airplane, electronics whether mounted or portable, can fail. You need to have a plan for when that happens because you still need to get back on the ground safely. It's becoming a bit disturbing the number of student and recreational pilots out there that are becoming very relia...

So I can go up in a real multi and shoot 6 aproaches and landings as long as I have a safety pilot beside me with 500 hours and 100 hours on twins and 10 on type and they'll validate my IPC?

If you are an advanced ultralight instructor can you log your instructional time with your student as PIC and count towards your total time?

If you are interested in opening an UL training facility UPAC.ca has a great book you can buy for a few dollars which outlines the process step by step. It tells you the requirements for.licencing, insurance and TC paperwork etc.

You can also find general answers on their FAQ page.

There is no such thing as a "land" or "sea" rating for ultralight aeroplanes. Nevertheless, common se...
