"Thanks, Bertrand. MAAC sent them out, too. I wonder which of these do apply to MAAC members (like the last one, say). The 250g threshold looks very ominous for the regs we haven't seen yet.  George"

"@William : For the course check http://pilottraining.ca or http://www.ccuvs.com/ (this last one is more for pro pilot) For the rules, even the regulators sometimes can't give you the answer to a simple question."
