Re: English Vs French on the Radio.

Fortunately, Aviation is a very safe industry and just because there isn’t a causal relationship yet, doesn’t mean there won’t be in the future. The real question is, does understanding the language of other radio transmissions make aviation safer. The answer is obviously true. The near miss in Pro...

Re: English Vs French on the Radio.

having flown all over the world where local languages are also used at all sorts of airports, I cannot agree with the philosophy that only “English” should be used. There are many areas of the world where locals, even airline pilots are not proficient in english or not enough to communicate properl...

How does he get from inside the 182 to the top of the wing? Climb forward onto strut, grab cowl handle, step one foot up onto the fuselage ahead of the windshield, move hands to top of wing, pull up onto the wing. The air flow pushing you against the leading edge of the wing would help. The large s...

Initially I thought of them loosing power on one engine in a bad spot the way they were swerving (up into the grass it seems) Being busy staying centered it looks like they forgot to properly raise their tail past 40/50kts Or left the elevator locks on.
