Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

What you are simulating is not flying an approach, you are simulating IFR procedures while flying under VFR rules. I have flown hundreds of simulated IFR approaches,at controlled airports. All started with a request to the tower for what I wanted, followed by a clearance that said cleared for the s...

Re: AC1804 Montego Bay Report Released

I wouldn't say that I agree with ahramin on this whole subject, but I think I'm starting to understand his point. And that is.... Current stabilized approach policies are not very effective at reducing unstable approaches which continue to a landing. I think I agree entirely with that.... 97% contin...

Re: AC1804 Montego Bay Report Released

Ahramin, I don't agree with your math. Well I do and I don't. I think you might be missing the point. You stated that "99.9995% of unstabilized approaches are continued to a safe landing"... now I realize you were just ballparking that, but it's misleading. Sure, a verrrry small percentage of unstab...

Re: 747 EPR Question

I'm not a heavy jet guy, but you heavy jet guys have seriously confused me. You (jet guys) seem to be answering this OP by saying that "the thrust on approach would be just as high as in cruise because of all the drag". Surely this isn't correct. The actual thrust (and fuel burn) would be waaaay low...

I just learned that a Westland Lysander can do 300mph in a dive.

I would have bet against that.

The accident statistics are clear. In order of probability of a most to least fatal outcomes. (Note: for all approach types circling at night is the most likely to result in a fatal accidents, followed by circling during the day, followed by night straight in followed by day straight in.) 1) NDB (n...

I just noticed that the TSB has a posting for an investigator (operational/pilot) in BC.

Engine failure actions for me is.. Do nothing for the first few seconds except fly the airplane......and absorb WTF happened. That way I will be less apt to do something wrong fast. It doesn't appear that this crew did anything significant for about 20 seconds after the failure. Does anyone have an...

Re: TSB Investigation into 703 fatalities

With regard to CVR/FDR, who is everyone arguing against? Who said a CVR/FDR would prevent an accident?

I'm pretty sure the TSB meant that if they had CVR/FDR data they could better determine what happened, and therefore make recommendations in relation to.

I've got some bad news.

The risk of stroke doubles every decade after age 55.

That is only one age-related risk statistic.... there are numerous others.

Regarding the beacon thing, the report I read didn't seem to suggest it was the primary cause, or even secondary.... just another hole in the cheese.
