Re: Hold short instructions for a taildragger

It has been a long time since I retired but if I recall, simultaneous operations on intersecting runways can only be done when there is a control tower in operation and an FSS is not a control tower.

Re: Stalls into a headwind or Tailwind

Get another instructor! The airplane does not know or care which way the win is blowing when doing stalls. It all depends on your entry technique.

After 40 years of instructing, I thought that I had heard it all. Now tell me, is there Yaw in turn? Or only in a LSA

Re: Red Deer Student Lost

With all these Engliss Proficiet slo students in our airspace, we can expect another YHU before too long. I'm surprised that the Fraser Valley dogfight hasn't produced more casualties.

As long as off-shore entities own the majority of flight schools in our country the problem will only get wo0rse

Re: Sopwith biplane replica in Abbotsford?

It was probably the replica Sopwith Pup built by the Museum staff at Langley. They built two a/c which were taken to France for the Vimy Flight but were not allowed to fly in the big fly-past.

Re: What is the perfect flying club aircraft?

Weight is always a problem in a Cub. There once was a sports announcer from Detroit who would rent our Cub (on floats), then spend hours on the river trying to get it on the step. On a calm day with glassy water...forget it!
