I appreciate the time all you mentors take to contribute to this website. I’ve learned a lot. Thank you for the wealth of information you share!
I’m currently working as a CFII and building time. About 7 months ago as a brand new commercial pilot and CFI, I took a flight up to Canada in one of our school’s planes with a couple other people, one of whom I had been giving a flight review to. He used to fly his own aircraft up there back in the day, so I left the customs part up to him. I learned a huge lesson that as PIC I am solely responsible for all aspects of the flight. …Turns out he filed the wrong date for our return into the US and I subsequently got slapped with a few customs violations including “failure to obtain permission to land” among others.
I never ended up getting fined but I’m nervous that I won’t be able to pass the background check to get my CASS privileges. Wondering if any of you are familiar with this sort of thing or could point me in the right direction on how to find out how it effects my future.
