Re: Training YSE and Mountain Flying vs. Langley

Just keep your options open, as you might find that the school you choose doesn't work for whatever reason (crappy customer service, poor scheduling, lack of knowledge, etc). And to be honest the mountain flying courses aren't terribly useful. Certainly do one to get the knowledge, but unless you m...

Training YSE and Mountain Flying vs. Langley

Thank you all for your input on the potential for my training to pick up at YSE after I relo to BC. An interesting opportunity has come up where I can get access to a plane and train a ton of hours in Langley, or I can simply train up at YSE. My goal, eventually, is to be able to fly in the mountain...

Trump's new immigration/visa ban

Just a quick curious question..

What is going to happen to pilots that work for airlines that have been flying into and out of the US on their visa/passport for years from banned countries.

This whole thing is going to cause big big problems.

Just saw that Iran is now banning US citizens.

Re: Cross Canada Air Rally

So, if anyone in the west is interested in doing this, I would share costs and flying time to do this, without hesitation! THIS LOOKS AWESOME. Proble...

Re: How many hours a week did you fly during your PPL training?

This has been a brutal winter for getting wheels up for my PPL training in Toronto.

Hopefully, my relo to BC will be met with more flight time.

How many hours a week did you fly during your PPL training?

Im debating between a unique training opportunity at Langley or going to YSE for my training (PPL).

My question is how many hours a week and how did you structure your flight training during your PPL?

Re: Training at YSE questions

Hi Formula,
how many hours a week can you get, provided the weather is on your side.

Meaning, do you find it difficult to book a plane a few times a week?

Buy block time to get PPL?

Hey,
things seem to keep changing in my adventure out west.

So, as I search for a way to expedite my PPL in Vancouver, my question is:

Can I buy block time on a 172 and bring in an instructor into that plane?

Re: Training at YSE questions

A Few things. YES, fractional ownership in a 172 is of significant interest to me or in a piper. This could make the training much easier as well. If you hear of a fractional ownership somewhere, let me know. My schedule is somewhat flexible, although the next couple of months i will have to be flyi...

Re: Flight schools in Vancouver area -- winter training...

Thanks for input... I'm going slam home as many hours as I can with my instructor at BFC then transfer out to PFC at YBB. Due to the nature of my "real job" on-line ground school is really the only alternative for me. I do hear harv's is good for that. I think PFC has an online school as well. By th...

August vacation where I can also rent a 152/172 in BC or in Canada?

Every year i take August off. This year i plan to have my PPL in August and want to be in a place that I could go rent a plane and for a ride a couple times a week. My thoughts are: 1. Whistler (can I rent a plane in Pemberton or Squamish?) 2. Banff 3. Kamloops 4. Kelowna I'll be by myself, late 40s...
