Re: Has TC stopped publishing the Aviation Safety Letter?

You know what really grinds my gears? http://www.themobilityresource.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/grinds-my-gears.jpg (1) there are only 2 safety letters out for this year and it's the end of December. C'mon man! What do we pay our taxes for?? (2) the pdf download times quoted are for a 56k modem....

Are you going to get your ATPL sooner now? [Poll]

In light of the rules changing this week, I'm curious how many people are going to take advantage of the new 1:1 copilot hours credit. To clarify, reply 1 means that you think you will go captain on a airplane requiring an ATPL sooner now that you can count all your copilot time. Option 2 means you ...

Re: Question: Who all views and downloads...

I like to download resumes for fun. I look at the page layout, how they have their hours listed, types flown, any school/past work/achievements and how they are listed. I sometimes get good ideas for my resume. On the other hand, it's mostly entertaining to see what not to do. Sometimes you see resu...

Re: Needing some employment ideas and tips

I also agree with the others who say the video is hurting you. It is easy to point out faults, so with all due respect, take the following as areas for improvement: -Cancel the master warning as soon as you know what it's for. -There is a edit jump around the 1:07 mark. As the copilot VSI is going b...

Re: Pilatus PC-12 power setting rationale.

^thanks photofly. :rolleyes: My post was mostly in jest/sarcasm as measuring engine power by manifold pressure doesn't make sense until you understand how it works and what it is actually measuring.

Re: Pilatus PC-12 power setting rationale.

I fly a constant speed piston engine. Moving the throttle changes the "Manifold Pressure" in inches of mercury. Confusing. I would prefer "Torque", or "Horsepower", or "% Power", but no, the aircraft manufacturers are stuck on the super-confusing manifold pressure as a measurement of power....

Looks like a case of the mixture too lean on climbout. The pilot should have checked wunderground for the local pressure setting.

I am a recent college grad looking for work until Jazz calls. I can land a 172 on a 10000 ft runway with a 5 kt crosswind. I can do a 7 page pre-start checklist in 13 minutes. I use wunderground for weather planning and I end every callsign with "zzzz". I go full rich props fine for descent and I we...

I assume they would be navigating solely by GPS down there.

I wonder if there was some form of GPS disturbance. That might explain why they "turned too soon" as well as the wrong ELT location.

Again, I have to ask why?

If a pilot is not comfortable flying down to minimums and safely completing a missed approach when required he should not be in the pilot's seat.

Re: Single pilot IFR

Out of experience, SPIFR is all about self preparation, motivation, setting your own minimums
Interesting point. Should I be setting my own minimums higher or lower than what's in the Cap?
