Unsurprisingly, I have had many discussions
with Transport. More than once, I have told
"Just because it's unusual, doesn't make it
illegal or dangerous"
The vast majority of pilots, will assume that
something unusual must
illegal. Or dangerous. Predictably, we can
see Rockie trying to shoehorn CAR 602.01
onto this one, ignoring the posts from many
other float pilots that this is routine, in less
sensitive and delicate parts of the country.
The way the regulations work, is that if it
is not specifically prohibited, it is therefore
permitted, modulo CAR 602.01, which is
sort of a prize for originality and creativity.
