International flight question

Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:00 pm

Hello everyone!
Hope I got this in the correct forum..

I have a quick question..
Would you need a passport to fly a Cessna from the USA, and do a few touch and goes or full-stop landings in Canada, and then return back to the USA?




Thanks,
Andrew

Probably, it depends. I regularly flew a military plane to a CFB and did touch and goes without clearing. Civil plane likely, I’d think you’d have to file eAPIS just to cross the border.

You need a US passport to land in Canada. No DUIs in your past FWIW.

Yes I know you are just wanting to do touch and goes. But all of the above still applies.

Don’t be like me and end up landing in Canada on a 10 minute across the border flight from the US in a Cessna 172 and have a minor who’s just along for a ride and don’t have a parents permission slip saying you’re not trafficking her.

I wouldn't want to do it without a passport in case I need to land for some reason.

What if you get stuck in Canada due to technical issues? Just bring the passport, it isn't worth the risk.

Most US citizens do not have a passport, so I suppose the OP was hoping to achieve his flight without the hassle of applying for one.

Don't forget that you will also need the second "R" in ARROW, which most GA planes and private pilots in the US do not have.

20 years ago this would be true. Now if you live near the border and have any reason that you might need to cross it, you now have either a full passport or one of the border ID cards.

Plus many more Middle Americans are getting forced to have a passport. Used to be able to go on a cruise ship with out one, now you have to have one.

Sure they do, and it's a whole $2 to get a replacement if they don't have a copy or are you telling me most GA planes and private pilots are running aircraft around unregistered?
