  4. Airport Restaurant at Qualicum beach is a great place to spend for lunch. But good luck getting a table!
  5. I've been working full time as well as training for the past few months. Originally I had wanted to dedicate full time towards my flight training but the way things worked out, it worked better for me to stay employed and do the training during my time free from work. I, like you, have been doing shift work, meaning more or less lots of days off at a time and for the most part I was able to get through everything no problem, aside from groundschool hours which I'm a little behind on. You will need to make some personal sacrifices during your training to make time for everything necessary but in the end, I for one am glad I stayed employed. Rather than draining my savings completely, and risk being completely broke by the time I'm finished (and perhaps without an job at the end of the day).... I'm now going to be only SLIGHTLY broke! Typical day starts at about 4:30am, commute to work for 0530, work til 1300, fly from 1400-1500, and if I had a decent nights sleep I may tag on another hour of flying (1 hour dual, 1 hour solo), commute home, eat dinner, and fall asleep reading my manuals! Days off I'll hit up as many hours of groundschool as I'm able to fit in, and get my head in the books during the rest of my free time. Still been able to cram in a few summer hiking trips as well to vent off some stress. Might take me an extra month to get my training done, but during the 5 months of training I also earned an extra $10k to put towards rent, food, gas, and other expenditures. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Now I can put that money I would've spent towards something useful. (Like a vacation!!?) Get the ball rolling and see what happens. If you're overwhelmed you'll just have to cut back.
  6. I delt with Alex at Maxcraft in Vancouver as well and service was outstanding. :shock:
