Re: Science-Based Alternative to Ease Quarantine Act Restrictions

I didnt see that, but I did see a picture circulating online, "split screen", with a screencap of the doctor on the right, and a lady on the left with crazy talk posters. The doctor lives and works in Houston Texas. The crazy woman picture was taken somewhere in Mississippi. Perhaps you have a link...

Re: What is "lift"?

You are in a 100 KIAS cruise. You alter your situation so as to attain a climb, and maintain 100 KIAS in the climb. Has your angle of attack increased, decreased, or remained the same? A force produces an acceleration (F = m*a). Once stabilized in a constant speed climb, the airplane’s upward force...

Re: What is "lift"?

Lift is the opposition to gravity and thrust is the opposition to drag. To climb, more lift needs to be created to overcome gravity. The lift is created by increasing AOA and then more thrust is added to overcome drag to maintain airspeed. AOA is lower in a climb as a component of power is counteri...

Re: RCAF reserve as a second job

In order to wash out one must first apply. Being a pilot in the CF is secondary to to being an officer. I have a CD, jump wings and do not wish to be a pointy head but thanks.

Eric, sounds like the event was so sudden and unexpected that there was no time to recover. The press conference from the Director of Flight Safety covers this nicely.

The phenomenon is known as servo transparency. As I said in the sentence right before the one you quoted, this is what I am gathering from the very brief update. Purposely changing direction, airspeed and altitude all at once, maybe dropping the gear out at the same time? is about as "complex" as i...

All least people should have the decency to pre-phrase with: “This looks like X” not “this causes Y to happen which causes the helicopter to crash”.

Essentially a descending, high g turn. The overloading of the rotor causes the servos to become unresponsive until the situation is corrected. If you don't have the altitude to ease off and come back out of it then you will crash.

Any ejection system can be thwarted by introducing a vertical vector the newer seats cannot nullify. I don't know what that minimums are for the CF-18; someone current/familiar with the aircraft may know... Except that not all seats are equal. Some give you a higher apex than others (ie: newer seat...
