Re: Some questionable decision making on New Zealand beach

Yeah..."slightly shattered" = "slightly written off". The whole thing has that homebuilt/ultralight feel to it. Maybe they saw too many of those cubdriver watersking videos.

Re: This will make your heart thump :

You re right ahramin. Niether the cliff robertson original nor this one made any sense. Both of them glamorize flying while drunk or hungover, which has to be the most moronic hollywood twist of reality there is. All either one can do is ruin your judgement, make you more suceptible to panic, and......

Re: Video released Aug 2013 Iceland Air Ambulance KA200 cras

By the time you re flying a kingair or the like you should be grown up enough to no longer feel the need to buzz your buddys/girlfriend/random strangers. And before that point in your career you should be working hard enough at building a professional reputation that buzzjobs should be out of the qu...

Re: CAP GEN question!!! please help

Once you have a handle on which chart you re supposed to be using, its pretty easy to remember the limiting numbers for the apprchs that you use the most. Be sure to read the bit in the cap gen about when an apprch ban is in effect, particulary of you fly north of 60. Also, futher to the point about...

Re: Cylinder Cracking

Whats relevent is how fast or slow the engine cools. Yanking power off, going full rich at 10000 feet, or suddenly increasing airspeed at low OAT will all shock cool things. A CHT guage will tell you clearly what you can and cant get away with. Without one, you have to go by something. Inch a min is...

"Training is recommended because of the sometimes very different flight characteristics of these aircraft."

Meaning some of them are quite hard to fly and may try to kill you unexpectedly in ways a normal airplane cant.

True. Parts of that vid gave me the creeps though. Nothing to see out there and it would spoil the fun for me to have to devote most of my attention to not wandering verticaly, with few visual cues.

Re: Flying down low

Dont fly low over glassy water at all. Its hazardous enough even for landing on. Also in addition to the other good advice above, have lots of preformance to spare. You want to be able to climb quick and easy if you suddenly find you havent thought far enough ahead.
