Re: Practice approaches while vfr

Before I started my IFR, I had the opportunity to fly a PA 32 -- without a right side AI I might add -- a few hours from the right seat, in broken IMC cruise flight with the (gracious) owner who invested in me during a trip we took together. This was a challenge, but combined with some flight sim ti...

Re: Sketchy Flight.

Just flew by there and heard him on 26.7 up near WAWA sounded cool as a cucumber. The tops were 6000 to the west of Sudbury Sct-Bkn in some spots and the moon is shining fairly bright. I wouldnt hesitate to bomb around VFR tonight, now out over the water in a piston single I'd have to be on oxygen....

Re: Sketchy Flight.

SCT 30/60... cruising at 8000ft currently. They shouldn't be between layers according to the GFA, if accurate. Over the water, says Bkn 30/60, then layers 120-200. Probably clear of that part now. Too sporty for me, that's all, I've flown that route many times, but not at night, and look at the tem...

Re: Serious answers where will I get funds from?

Control your spending. Buy used. Live smaller and cheaper. None of this is helpful. It's not more useful than saying have more money. Even if you're terrible with money, there aren't many things to blow it on in the last year minus ATV's It's the most important principle that has worked for me in s...

Re: Inflation is coming...in a big way.

Nor should you, because you are 100%...correct. Canada is irrelevant in financial terms compared to the US. Actually, in a whole lot of ways, really. Doesn't mean Canada is a bad place or anything. Just relatively small in economic, demographic, or military terms. It used to punch above its weight ...

What does that make the economy of South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, Russia, or any of the developed nations that aren’t in the top 10 like Canada is?

Re: Check the Ramp for Leaking oil After post Maintenance Run-up

There's a pre-flight run-up, where obviously you don't get out and look around, and there's a "I've just changed the oil and oil filter" runup, where you're not going flying, so after you do that runup, you put the plane away, and you check for leaks while you tie it down. If I'm picking ...

Re: Check the Ramp for Leaking oil After post Maintenance Run-up

If you're going to bother do a runup, an integral part of the exercise is to shut down, get out of the plane and get down on your knees and look for leaks. I doubt too many pilots renting aircraft after it is signed out of maintenance are shutting down and looking underneath after a run-up. That be...
