Re: Meeting with a pilot

Have I got a deal for you.

Yup. I do find the total is a squeeze in the little box at the bottom but I like to open the book and see it once in a while.

Hangars for sale.

I figured we could use a thread to share interesting listings.

California. A bit pricey for just a building. I would definately try to negotiate for the long board pictured.

Re: Updated MCAS ‘Safe’ Says MAX Technical Team

First officer, "Wow, that's the hardest landing I've ever seen!"

Captain, "Yeah, I don't know why that happened, I have been practicing lots, just last week I was doing greasers in a 172."

Re: Small aircraft operators making ‘gradual drift’ toward unsafe flying, says TSB

I suspect they are referring to pilots going with bare minimum fuel that probably is already below current legal reserves in order to reduce weight.

They don't get discovered unless they run out.

Re: FTD

Interesting. Seems like you are suggesting something like a redbird is not a sim but a FTD. I remember those old units at some flying schools that were basically a plywood box with controls and instruments. I might have even refused to call them sims back then. I wonder if a guy can find one of thos...

Ok, annoying but I suppose it prevents Trey and I from setting up a panel van with Microsoft flight sim and then sending guys to Transport with full motion simulator time in their log books. I was only joking but maybe they decided to write a rule to prevent it. Fair enough I guess. Thank you for cl...

Re: A Field Guide to NOTAMs

Well it's flawed but that's modern life isn't it? If a thing is a CYA item they need to mix it in to force us to read everything. If it was seperated out almost no one would read it and they would not be doing their due diligence. Regardless of how seemingly trivial. True enough if a heavy airliner ...

FTD

I was just reading a list of requirements for CPL and it included, Minimum 20 hours instrument time, (of which at most 10 may be in a FTD) What is a FTD? I decided FTD might mean a sim. But why not write sim? Is there some other thing that can be a FTD? Expecting a good mix of information and attemp...

Re: Hawker Hurricane

It's kind of a fancy restoration by local standards. Often they used to remove the engines.

I used to love going there before they re-named the place and made it more expensive to go once than it was to buy a yearly pass.

Re: A Field Guide to NOTAMs

Nice.

I particularly enjoyed that example where they corrected a height from 1732' to 1733'. I was going to fly over it but in light of the notam, maybe we better go around it.

Agreed.

I wonder where it landed after and how that went. Though I believe the guy who logged the "touch and go" did say they returned to the departure point.
