Forced Approaches

To put it bluntly, most light plane pilots suck at forced approaches. It's one of those stick-and-rudder exercises that simply needs to be practiced more, to be any good at. If you've only held a guitar in your hands a couple times before, would you expect to be able to play a song on it? Of course ...

Re: Stay Away From Hospitals

Too Much Crosswind For A Fully-Loaded 172!

Couple days ago, going around the pattern. Windsock across the runway. It had been straight out earlier, but as the evening went on the wind decreased and the windsock might have been at 45 degrees. Perhaps 5 or 6 knots of crosswind? Into the pattern comes a 172. Flies long, long legs. Overshoots on...

Re: Mid-Air collision at Duxford

These guys were trying to break out of a vic formation. The Blue Angels do a nice break out of a diamond, but these guys were clearly nowhere near that skill level. It's actually not very hard to do, but ... Conventionally, with left traffic, the formation is arranged in a right echelon. Lead turns ...

At Duxford, I can assure you the pilots that fly there have more then (sic) enough expierence (sic) Evidence would suggest, not quite enough in formation flying. That was an awful break, and they quite didn't get away with it, that time. I know some other people who had a bad experience with a pilo...

Simple-minded egalitarianism is so childish - and so widespread. The incredible rationalization about people with money is mind-boggling. Either 1) they inherited it, and are thus evil, or 2) if they didn't inherit it, they must have stole it, so they are evil. :roll: Maybe, just maybe, when someone...
