Plane Rental in US in a US plane with a US Instructor

Hi I’m going travelling into the US this week for work and am renting a172 with an instructor. I have my PPL, can I count the time in the aircraft as part of my dual training for my CPL? My inclination is “no” for the fact of the non canadian aircraft and non canadian instructor. But I can still cou...

Re: Flightaware?

Flightaware?

Just curious...
I typed in my registration into flightaware and it had posted a flight I did from a Canadian airport to a US Airport. No other flights had been recorded or displayed. I don't have ads-b out. But I do have a garmin inreach.

Any ideas on how flightaware works?

Re: Should I find a new instructor, or is this a normal first few lessons?

I changed flight schools after 7 hours at one school. At that first school in the 7 lessons, I never took off once, never landed, and basically felt like a fool. I switched schools and was taking off and landing on first lesson. A waste of time during my first 7 hours of training in southern ontario...

Re: Plane crash at Sechelt airport

I flew into Sechelt on Wednesday and landed and departed on 29 in a 172. There was no wind but I still felt some windshear over those trees on the rising terrain. My camera was set to the wrong settings, but here is what i filmed https://www.dropbox.com/s/0dfbdx33zm1w8 ... d.mov?dl=0

Re: Renting 172 USA

Wow!! I sent in my material for the Verification of Authenticity of Foreign License on Jun 21 to the FAA and received my letter from them today, to contact the FSDO after 24 hours. Transport Canada provided FAA all the info they needed within 2 weeks!

Re: Self study hours ppl

Strip it down. 1. You need someone to sign you off to write the ground 2. You have to pass the test 3. You need a way to log your flight training hours. Either in your own plane or an FTU. I dont think an FTU will turn you away for not doing your ground with them, they will make enough money from yo...

Re: ATC encounters

Departing Teterboro NYC this past week. we are a C172RG and we are positioned between large turbine private jets taking off from Runway 01. Tower clears us to "line up and wait" after a big boy citation takes off. The three of us in the airplane are all pilots (PPL) and Tower tells us we're clear fo...

Re: Licence renewal time

Pacific Region TC has some great and responsive folks working there. When I have needed something answered or addressed, both for aircraft or licensing or medical, they have been great. I've even had someone answer the published phone number from time to time, but leaving a voicemail has also been p...

Reserve cost per hour 172

Hi, I was having a discussion today with a friend and we were debating what they ask each fractional owner to pay per hour toward an annual and toward the Overhaul at 2200 on a 172. I've seen numbers between $40-$80 per hour for a 172 (E2D). There are things that have to get done at an annua, regard...

Re: SPOT mounting options for Cessna 172 and Piper Cherokee

put the spot in your pocket! Depending on how often you're dropping breadcrumbs though. Problem with spot is that it doesn't go directly to SAR. A PLB does, i believe.

i would love to know this too. there is no "documents" place. Maybe it can go, somehow, in plates??

I prefer garmin pilot over foreflight, with this main exception.

Re: Night Rating - You Should Think About It!

It is thus, also, assumed that the training has to be done in either an aircraft from an FTU or an aircraft in which the student is on the C of R.
