Re: Lift Video

Any time you see this, you know the person who created it has no idea what they’re talking about. The person who wrote the script for these videos has a masters degree in aerospace engineering, so he probably has some idea what he's talking about:). (I know many people on this site are down on degr...

Re: Exce$$ive ground briefings

The more I look into it, though, the more I think the problem of consumer ignorance distorts the market. If the consumer doesn’t know what efficient training is then there’s no way they can seek out providers who offer it in preference to others. +1. This is information asymmetry . The flight train...

Re: Ifr during cpl

Absolutely. It's a crazy waste of time not to do this. During your CPL, you need to get 20 hours (minimum) of instrument time and you need to conduct a bunch of time building. At the very least, you should use the time building to get the 50 hour X/C requirement, and you should use the 20 hours to g...

Re: Exce$$ive ground briefings

For a well prepared student on a lesson that covers only straight and level (which itself is questionable) What do you find questionable about it? This early in the training, there are lots of ancillary bits and pieces that are new to the student but have to happen just by the nature of being in an...

Re: Exce$$ive ground briefings

Please point out where ground briefing is a "mandatory" in the LICENSING REQUIREMENT . I've pasted the requirements below for your ease of reference... in fact not only is no time specified, pre-flight briefings are not specified at all... instructors might want to do it, but it isn't a requirement...

Re: Helicopter pilot thinking about making the move to fixed wing

A large number of the skills you've developed as a helo pilot transfer directly into the fixed-wing world. Maybe not everything in terms of basic stick-and-rudder, but navigation, meteorology, aerodrome ops, decision making, etc. all carry over almost completely. I think many operators recognize thi...

Re: Exce$$ive ground briefings

Ground briefing is not a licensing requirement. In accordance with Part IV of the CAR's, Preparatory Ground Instruction is required any time new material is covered in flight, and a Pre-Flight Briefing is required for every training flight (including solos). So yes, briefings are in fact a licensin...

Poll where you ask people to their face if you will be a scab or not and 93% say no.
You're aware of course that voting against a strike does not make one a scab.
