Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

She asked me, verbatim, "Are you sure? If you leave right now you can make it" I have NEVER heard a FSS specialist say those words or anything remote, Often it is the other way, painting a more negative picture than is the actual case ( post flight personal debriefing ) I CANNOT say enough wonderfu...

Regenerative braking , take the energy of braking and put it into taxiing to the terminal ! The fact this is not implemented just shows that its all smoke and mirrors folks !!!

Re: The challenges for us all in flying green

Doesn’t quite work that way. Increased CO2 will bring increased plant life and O2... but it will also bring increased temperatures as CO2 levels stabilize at a higher level... a level that will be good for some plants but not for others and good for some animals and not for others. More plants won’...

Re: Conventional Gear Situation

I should have said variable and gusty crosswinds ( much different than a steady crosswind ) Once landed in YPQ and had to fly it to the tie-down spot ( wheels both off the ground when taxiing ! )

Re: ADS-B

The Germans have 4 Globals but somehow we can't afford to upgrade even to newer used machines - not even with the justification that upgrading the current fleet to a basic minimum standard isn't cost-effective.

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

If only the pilots knew to go onto the backside of the power curve, no sorry, i meant BACKSIDE, as in roll her and fly inverted to unload the stab, clean her up as she approaches trim speed ( quickly) hit the shut-off and roll her out for a nice landing !
