    This is a bit of an odd question and I'm not quite sure where to ask it, but my Google-fu has come up dry, so I'm turning to the collective wisdom of POA for help.

    I'm a US pilot with an FLVC for C-registered aircraft. I went to university at Acadia in Nova Scotia and a lot of my friends still live in the area, so I head up there from California fairly often. I'm hoping to do some recreational flying on my next trip, but all the local flight schools seem to rent out exclusively in Cessnas (152s and 172s). I have plenty of time in 172s and I don't mind flying them, but my preference is PA-28s.

    Any locals happen to know of an outfit in Nova Scotia, PEI, or New Brunswick that will let me check out in and borrow a PA-28 for a bit?

    Have you checked the flying club at Debert? There's not much to choose from, GA wise, in Atlantic Canada, so I wouldn't expect much variety. We go up to Halifax to visit family regularly, but I bring my own plane.

    I'm also assuming you've checked out COPA's places to fly website?
