Re: Visual Approach Vs. Canceling IFR ??

I always thought it hilarious when training aircraft would announce they’re conducting the “simulated RNAV approach.” What the hell a simulated RNAV? You’re doing the RNAV approach, in real life, not in a simulator. Who cares if the weather is VMC? Call it what it is. Correct me if I'm wrong but in...

Re: Coronavirus Numbers

I don't think an argument needs to be made. The projection v. reality speaks for itself. It's clear that the expert forecast was way off and that projection was what drove policy. We are well under the deaths and cases that were projected. Those big numbers were designed to scare people and justify...

Re: #Swoopprez Out!

You’re right, let me clarify. We could live years with 0 income. The gov benefits help just that much more. I'm happy for you but it is far for being the norm, able to live years with 0 income. On a side note, there is this possibility that airlines might be ordered to fill only one seat out of two...

If you have option B - then there's nothing else to really consider imho. The name of the game now is SURVIVAL - having an income will make that much easier. If you have surplus funds then you can look at option A. Just be aware that it is unknown how long this will go on for and whether your job w...

This is so far one of the best up to date website to give a rough idea of what is going on.
I say rough because it is virtually impossible to have the correct numbers.

Re: Instances of reversed controls

Your first go was with one control at the time. Second, pitch, roll, yaw all to...
