Re: Renewing Expired Flight Instructor Rating

I take it jet aircraft don't glide as well as a 172. You'd think so at first glance, but I was curious about this, and did some investigation. It turns out the glide ratio of a 172N is about 9.1:1, and the A320 is about 17.2:1. So, actually the jet does almost twice as well as a 172. Sources: C172N...

Re: Flight Instructor Rating

I'm doing mine now but have been put on hold because TC is not doing any Instructor flight exams. In Ontario at least, independent Pilot Examiners are conducting flight tests for instructor ratings. I don't know about the rest of the country. It's business as usual here except for the long wait tim...

Re: Mental Health 2. Processing an accident

Some things are within our control, some are not. Even if you had closely inspected that fork, it seems unlikely you would have seen anything. This accident is down to bad luck and not something you could have reasonably prevented. Sometimes thing just break. It sounds like you did the best that cou...

No, that is a pre-flight briefing. From the FIG: Preparatory Ground Instruction Definition 1. Classroom type instruction, norma...

Re: Blue Bird in Hot Water

There is not a single flight school in the entire country that “quotes” for anything other than the bare are minimum hours. There is at least one. We quote for our average completion time of 67 hours. Maybe why we are called “too expensive.” Quoting the bare minimum is a bit disingenuous if almost ...

We put masks on sick people to keep them spreading the virus. Not healthy people to “save lives” Well that works as long as every person who is sick knows that they’re sick and takes measures. The problem is you can spread the virus without knowing you have it or before you show symptoms. Unless yo...
