We had given FlightExec our notice and flew the CJ4 into CYKZ for the final time last week.
As I get closer to finishing out my Cargo contracts for the spring;
I am finalizing my plans for the summer.
I have been logging allot of hours, gaining experience and learning everything I can in preparation of the end goal which is to fly commercially with the Air Canada logo. At the end of a busy week I pulled the Baron out of the Hangar and headed to Southern Ontario to meet some potential new employers who can hopefully help me obtain that goal.
Up to now, I have completed the followi…
We didn’t waste anytime loading up the 310 and heading back north for home (CYTS).
After a busy week of Charters
It was time to head back North to CYTS to see the family for the long Canada Day weekend, but first I needed to make a stop.
I asked one of the guys from work to jump into my Baron and fly with me to Oshawa (CYOO) as I would need someone to fly one of the planes back to our hangar in Buttonville.
CYOO (Oshawa Executive Airport) is home to HADHER TBM’s official s…
And upon landing, we hit our 600 HRS goal.
After unloading and a quick Thanksgiving meal we headed East to Montreal.
It was nice to get some color below us as we left the Boreal forest and into the fall color producing trees.
After touching down at CYUL we headed to Air Canada’s HQ for an interview.
The interview went well and was followed up by a test.
The wait didn’t take too long, and before I knew it, I was hired!
We took off out of CYUL with good news in tow!
And after spending the night back in CYTS, headed back down to Toronto to start training!
Having spent the last few weeks familiarizing myself with the CRJ procedures, configuring my controls, cockpit, etc…
I am ready to start flight training!
I still have another 24" touch screen on the way that will serve as the true overhead but for now, this works. Also have much more pedestal instruments not yet displayed (thank you simstrumentation).
Today we got to tour the CRJ-900.
And checkout the new office!
Looking forward to starting this adventure!
OMG your home cockpit is sooo good!!! HOW much money did you spent for this?
I bought everything (including PC) in one shot so it was quite expensive ($15,000+ Canadian).
wow nice! u must be really rich! do u live in canada?
same i live in Brampton ontario
It has been just over a week since I started flying the CRJ9 with VAC (
vacanada.org) and so far so good. It has taken quite a bit of practice to land smoothly but they are getting much better.
I have been promoted over to the left seat with;
It’s also taken some work to get the timing right on the flight plans and then do the walk around, pre flight, originating, startup etc… as well as time it with PACX and the VA ACARS system but I’ve got it all smoothed out now and it runs well.
As has been the case with every plane thus far, I always seem to do a night flight for the inaugural run.
CYYZ - KDCA;
KDCA - CYOW;
I’m about 800KM North of you.
We’ve been progressing through the ranks and have reached Narrow-body Captain, with Wide-body Relief Pilot up next.
By the numbers;
The plan (for now) is to fly the CRJ for 900 hours between the VA’s 4 hubs (YUL / YYZ / YWG / YVR). Then, while at each hub, fly every regional CRJ route at least once.
Within YYZ, there are (currently) 29 CRJ regional flights operated by Jazz.
So far, I have flown 8 unique ones.
And we’ve taken a few shots along the way!
We also had a couple nights in a row of CATII and CATIII’s into YYZ.
With the fog still hanging around the following morning.
REX AccuSeasons makes it a beautiful time of year to be flying.
And friendly competition!
These last shots are the first trip into KDTW which has an amazing freeware available on flightsim.to!
I only have 21hrs in MSFS2020. I have question, do your hours increase by the time you spend in the game or the time you fly?
Flight Time is logged from wheels up to wheels down.
I have 1,414.7 Hours of MSFS running, but just over 700 hours of flight time.
oh ok I haven’t even reached 50 hrs yet buy hopping to reach them till the end of winter vacation. Do your flying time give you anything?
I’m not sure I understand what you are asking?
