Re: Don't Turn On The AutoPilot

I mostly used to fly with the autopilot off because I wanted to get good at hand flying. But I've had enough practice so ill probably start flying autopilot.

Re: Living in hotel rooms

Unless you're getting a cheapo counter-rotating prop heli from radioshack it might be better to get an airplane. I think parkzone makes some nice 2.4 Ghz micro cubs.

Only $159 but you can get a micro heli for that price too.

Flight Schools with MIFR flight test approved simulators

I'm renewing my IFR after 3 years of expiry and i'm looking for flight schools with sims approved for MIFR flight tests. I'm in the Alberta area but willing to travel since a sim is so much cheaper than an airplane.

Haven't flown in three years

Am I too out of date? Will I get hired if I renew my MIFR or should I renew my instructor rating instead?

Re: Job prospects/Road trip this December

So Thunder Airlines gave me a call back. I didn't expect a call so soon, but I got turned down based on two things: 1: I'm out of currency so I won't pass my flight test on a high performance aircraft. This was a worry of mine, that I wouldn't be able to fly an MU-2 after such a long break. I am in ...

Job prospects/Road trip this December

I've been out of the flying game for almost 2.5 years and have decided to give it another shot, just have to get the medical back in order. The university thing just isn't working out. For a pilot with 2100 hrs and 1000 MPIC PA-31 what are the prospects of employment in BC? Or will I need to travel ...

Re: Climate change researchers make dire warning

Actually global warming is a good thing for the corporations and fossil fuels companies in America. 1) Value of commodities go up. Water, food, and wood. 2) Arctic becomes open for exploitation. Upwards of 1/4 of the remaining fossil fuels reserves and unexploited minerals are there. 3) Military wil...

The full scale of some of those charts is smaller than the accuracy/tolerance/resolution of the instruments used to collect the data in the graphs. All trends are real - regardless of what you think.

Re: Climate change researchers make dire warning

Perhaps they make increasingly dire warnings because the situation becomes increasingly dire. Then again, some paid shills (Singer, Lindzen, Spencer, Christy) working for Koch, Exxon, and Peabody say that perhaps it's the sun wot did it. http://i.imgur.com/gP9ik.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Requ...

It is a shame you have so much trouble reading 14 pages on the most critical matter of our times. I have read more than 30 books on the subject and provided viewpoints from a number of the best books.
