I don't care what people bring... even though (not if) it sounds crazy and makes intelligent (not old) people complain about the state of the world. Bring your support Emu. I don't care.

Re: okotoks flight school

In an ideal world, instructors would only be retired pilots who are highly experienced but that's not the case, I don't agree with this opinion. First of all, teaching abinitio students is a lot of repetitive work that requires significant effort and the commitment to a lot of student's individual ...

Re: Central Alberta airshow accident

It seems that Smith doesn't have an airstrip so the airshow was near the town but not an airport. Exiting the show airspace would require flying back to wherever the aircraft had launched - and therefore an accident on the way would require time to find the aircraft. I, like others, didn't realize t...

Re: Central Alberta airshow accident

I agree that it's very sad that someone died but I don't see this as disrespectful at all and certainly not semantics. There was no impugning the pilot's skill or any other aspect of their flying, merely a comment that it seems strange that it would take an hour to find an aircraft the was performin...

Re: okotoks flight school

Maybe because people start flying before they have a radio license, then they build hours being number 6 for take off, getting used to controllers, flying in traffic etc. Things are a bit different compared to the good old days, learning nordo off a big grass circle. Nope Beef, you've got it all wr...

Re: C 172 checklist Canada vs US

I've had vastly different checklists and that's just between two different Canadian flight schools. If they're vastly different then one must be very long and the other rather short - and that would be impossible. As a relatively new poster here perhaps you haven't read enough threads to realize th...

Re: COPA for Kids pilots now require police check

Ok, I've read enough of the whinefest here, and I'm going to defend COPA. You guys are really clueless about how these predators operate. God Bless you for naivety. The reason -- yes I'm certainly presuming -- that COPA is singling out pilots, is not what might happen at an event. It's the chance o...

Re: Full flap landing rquired

Given the number of runways that PPLs do - and will - use that don't have slope guidance I believe its better training to learn to land entirely visually, and ignore the PAPI or VASI, if there should be one. Absolutely this!! The only value for PAPIs is as I said before to be a last chance warning ...

Re: Full flap landing rquired

I don't understand what a PAPI is for if you don't use it. Several months ago when doing night training my instructor was very specific fly the PAPI correctly. It's very odd at 500 agl to drop to 40° and "push" the thing to the runway I'd strongly recommend you go back to your instructor and ask wh...

I believe that a good instructor is a good instructor regardless of what machine they are teaching on I cannot share that opinion.

Anyone that misses PDW should starting pulling off their fingernails, one each day for 10 days. On the 11th day you'll miss not having another one to pull off. That'll get you over it.

It is unknown how poor the acceleration was. If it was obvious, one would think there would be a quick RTO. Perhaps it was just a general suspicion but not confirmed.
