About a month after writing the radiotelephone exam, my certificate arrived in the mail. It’s a small wallet sized piece of paper that states:
“The certificate holder is qualified to operate radio stations as indicated in the regulations made persuant to the Radiocommunication Act”
This is one of the pieces of paper I need before I can go solo.
I’m writing the PSTAR on Saturday. Either instead of my flight (if its rainy) or after it (if its sunny).

After your flight? Why not before?
You’ll kick yourself if your instructor turns around and says “Well, I would have solo’d you on this flight, but your PSTAR isn’t done yet” after you taxi back from your lesson.
The PSTAR is really nothing – easy as pie. Just in case the weather plays nice (which, unfortunately it isn’t supposed to this weekend) I’d get it done *before* the flight.
..just in case. ;-)
My lesson is for 8am… I really dont want to get up any earlier than I need to ;)
My FI said there is at least 1 or 2 more lessons before I can go solo.
But yeah, the weather this weekend (both Saturday and Sunday) doesn’t look promising.
Good Luck on the PSTAR. It really is easy as pie :-) Though they got me on the “how long till you can fly after taking” questions, I swapped the answers around on them:S in anycase im suprized that your RROC took so long, mine came in 4 days after I wrote it (well wrote it on a wednesday, FI didn’t see it till sunday, sent it out monday)
