Re: Teaching the VMC demo during ME training

I dont think it is a good idea to be limiting controls with your foot, or any other means. Why not? You prefer getting into a spin while conducting VMC training? I train new pilots on jets and frequently block the controls - that doesn't mean touch them. The only time they touch my hands or feet is...

Re: Teaching the VMC demo during ME training

I really can't think of a good reason to demo VMC, and at $5/minute there are much more actually useful things you can be doing in the airplane than discrediting all the respect you've built up for avoiding VMC as Job 1for a piston-twin pilot.

Re: Teaching the VMC demo during ME training

A less experienced instructor, who in the interest of safety climbs to a higher altitude for a VMC demonstration, may find that he/she has entered a situation where VMC has decreased to below the stall speed and ends up demonstrating a full-power single-engine stall and spin. Sound familiar? That i...

Re: Teaching the VMC demo during ME training

Safety concerns 1) Have lots of altitude. I won't do any low airspeed ME practice exercises without at being at or above 4000 ft AGL. 2) Many of the popular trainers have a VMC that is not that much higher than the stall speed. Thrust decreases with altitude which lowers the VMC. The possibility is...

Re: ME training..

Cat,

Have you ever had to feather an engine because you shut off the fuel, and it wouldnt light again once you turned it back on?


This seems to be a new phenomenon.

Re: US dollar plane purchases

I think sellers might have to rethink their USD pricing if they want Canadian buyers to consider buying their planes. The Canadian market is somewhat insulated from the US market, due to the PITA factor in importing. I have imported several aircraft, and in fact, most aircraft in Canada were at one...

Re: ME training..

While we're on the subject, what is your total instructional experience on the exact model of aircraft being instructed on? That's an instructional question, not a ME question. Just curious.


On that specific model of 310? zero. On 300 series cessnas in general. Lots.

You've chosen, and I've only questioned, your choice to inappropriately change it to a attack on BPF's situation, (from long ago) instead of accepting the spotlight on your actions with your student. You opened that door, and I sure can comment on that aspect. Unlike referencing BPF, you started th...

What I do is climb to 5000 agl and slow down to Vr, and then simulate a TO with Gear and Flaps down, Once positive rate is achieved again (throttles wide open but only making about 60% power at the altitude around here) I cut the fuel. You want to see someone scramble... if you know what you are do...
