    Garmin 296 Or Ipad Mini App?

    The iPad mini with Foreflight works great for ferry flights, crappy weather, holding current CFS, canadian and US charts, etc. However I found it was not as user friendly (unwieldy?) when working in a smaller area with multiple drop points, drill job and moving geos for example. If you are working only in canada and don't mind paper charts I would say get the 296. Of course, an iPad mini is also smaller and lighter than a CFS and a bag full of maps for western Canada....

    Ipad Foreflight Info

    You can get the bad elf, or other brand external gps as well. Picks up satellites quickly and I've never experiences a loss of reception even when the air craft's gps lost signal. Only downfall is that it is another device to keep charged...

    Trade Equivalency Assessment

    Have any of you AMEs out there done a trade equivalency assessment (or some form of challenge) to apply your aircraft maintenance experience towards another trade? I'm thinking stationary or power engineer, heavy equipment, or millwright.... Any tips would be appreciated!

    Resurgence Of Entry Level Flying Jobs

    One difference I see is that I will not fly around in a twin for FREE just to get experience....
  10. The policy letter was cancelled in 2011, I believe? If a person was logging only air time in their personal logbook, for the period the letter was in effect, they willingly shot themselves in the foot, ICAO or not.

    Long Dog Wipe Out In Alberta

    What a crass way to place a question, especially since you did not know the outcome. I'm surprised you didn't use emoticons.

    F Y I, Garmin 296 Software

    If you leave the ram mount on for a long time in the heat they will actually warp the window. Score another vote for ipad mini with foreflight. Indispensable when I used it in the USA.
