Re: Gravel tips.

Thanks for the input. I mean " do a thorough walk around before and after every flight " sorry. Read the AFM like a bible. I do it all the time. A little piece everyday, regardless of how awesome I think I am, every time I gain insight or learn something. I posted this to find some insight...

Gravel tips.

I am flying on gravel and am teaching a new Captain the subtle ways of gravel ops. I was wondering if I could mine the vast experience of AvCanada for some helpful hints.

Re: Anyone have tips for the LJ35?

Congrats on the new job. There's a site called smartcockpit.com. They have a Lear 31 study guide. I'm not sure how similar it is to the 35, but at least a start.

University of Ohio study

Re: How do you know which SID, STAR, Runway you gonna get??

I believe there's a flow issue using the 33's. Something about encroaching on US airspace over the lake. As per the departure procedure, wait until you get it. After several years of getting the Lester 7 off of 23, they bust out the Windy 1. Why and when do they choose the W1 over the L7, I have no ...
