Re: Steep Turns At Low Altitude

It sounds like your fear is perfectly rational. Generally there is no need for more than about 35 degrees of bank in the circuit. While it's safe to do a 45 degree turn at low level if you have sufficient airspeed, you generally shouldn't be going that fast in the circuit unless you've already screw...

Re: Self attestation for medical renewal

Yes, the portal still shows Sep 2019 for my cat 1 medical expiry, but they confirmed by email that the attestation is valid to renew my cat 3 medical. That email came 21 days after the email confirming they had received my attestation (in June).

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

That is a bit tricky cause ATC cleared you to 3000'. The reason for this clearance could be that keeping 3800' til intercept would put you above the GS. I would have gotten the wrong answer but I would have descended to 3000' intercept the loc and do the approach. Should still get a good signal at ...

Re: VIDEO (aftermath): 2 YouTubers Wrecked their Airplane during OFF-Airport Landing

@photofly Can you elaborate with reason why you believe this “ is a really mean-spirited and petty thread“? . Seems pretty obvious. Everyone is saying his GF crashed, with zero evidence. No matter who was at the controls, it was his responsibility to maintain airspeed, which he admits he failed at ...

Re: Rapid Testing and Travel Ban

Id now is 45% false positive but the troubling stat is the 26% false negatives. There is a place for this quick and inaccurate test but it shouldn't be seen as catchment to stop the spread. The Americans are the ones who have the data on it and essentially gave it an exemption as most tests need to...

Crashed near the entrance to Strawberry Creek raceway.

Re: How well do you know your fuel tanks

If you have a fuel flow meter, it's quite enlightening. The carbureted O-360 burns about 12gph at 75% power before leaning, and fuel flow after leaning can vary by at least 1gph depending on how you've leaned it. Climb is about 14 or 15 gph, and it's burning 2gph all the time you're farting about on...

Re: 172 runs out of gas - lands on TN highway

I think you'd need to be crazy not to dip the tanks on a 172, unless you've just filled them up to the top. But I guess that nicely explains why some people run out of gas.

Re: IFR flight test tablet requirments?

Ipads seem to be pretty bad at handling sunlight. My newish ipad pro always shuts down when I'm simply reading something and it's sunny and around 20C. It's never happened in the cockpit yet, but I usually keep it on my lap or in the door map pocket out of the sun. Might be due to the cover.

Re: Question for trough (at the GFA)

Looks like it may be a lee trough caused by the 25kt winds over the rockies, combined with the low pressure system moving east. So probably the main thing to worry about would be the wind and turbulence. It's the kind of weather I wouldn't want to be flying down low in a small plane anywhere west of...

Re: ADS-B equipment

TailBeaconX is reasonably priced but it does require another $1500-$3000 head to interface with it. It’s a whole new transponder unlike the SkyBeacon that intercepts your existing transponder signal and adds on the ADS-B portion via UAT. They don’t really mention the new head unless you start looki...

Re: ADS-B equipment

Do you know if the ADSB info that is being sent from the airplane indicates if it has a diversity antenna install or not? Do controllers have the ability see that you are using a non-diversity antenna install? Either they'll see your signal or not. But, if you get a non-diverse solution you could e...

In EFBs the plates are all together. CAP, RCAP, RNP, all approaches are there. If you are not expecting it, it's easy to think that an ILS is a CAP approach and miss the note that says Ops Spec. Especially in Victoria where the ATIS says approach in use is ILS 27 and you're all set up for it and th...
