Re: Multi FO time vs. Single PIC time

I think PIC time is very healthy for you in the long run. It is also a great experience being responsible for every small detail related to the flight and allows you to learn and master things that most co-pilots rarely think about. There is a very good reason why PIC time on a C-150 counts for twic...

Boeing 747-100/200 Airspeed Indicator

Looking to sell a 747 airspeed indicator. This thing actually registers airspeed (I don't know about Mach number though, Ontario has pretty strict speed limits), so it does work. Electronic side of it is untested.
PM if interested.

Re: Companies that do not require Training bonds

Airborne Energy has bonds for Navajo and Caravan. I do not know about 172s, but probably no bond there.

Re: Do student pilots need to learn about AoA?

As far as pitching moment goes... They would definitely need to know how the airplane reacts when critical AoA is exceeded and why that happens. Could you expand on that for me? Particularly the why. I believe that airplane pitch change after exceeding the AoA is due to the fact that location of Li...

Re: Do student pilots need to learn about AoA?

@Ki-ll: I'm not a flight instructor at present - but if I had students, I would not teach them what you suggest I shouldn't. I appreciate what dr.aero wrote. If they need to understand what happens to Cl and Cd as the angle of attack varies, do they also need to understand the effect of the pitchin...

Re: Do student pilots need to learn about AoA?

Not to start a pissing contest... But please do not teach your students that speed is related to an angle of attack because it is not. If it was, the airplane would stall at only one speed all the time in a given configuration, which it does not.

Re: Flight Training Guide: Angle of Attack

I find this whole thread rather odd for a simple explanation. I can't think of anything required to explain how angle of attack effects lift better than relating it to sticking your hand out the car window and make your arm fly by adjust the angle your hand meets the airflow. Then talk about the di...

Re: Flight Training Guide: Angle of Attack

Ki-ll... Yes, and as I've pointed out I see quite a big flaw in your acceptance that a student should be able to forget what they learned in groundschool and shouldn't have that knowledge refreshed and applied to a current flight lesson. You may have missed the lesson during your flight instructor ...

Re: Flight Training Guide: Angle of Attack

Ki-ll... Maybe a better question is how many variables affect lift? Answer is 4. Which can be reduced to 3 and further reduced to 2 important ones for the pilot. I fail to see the extreme complexity of this equation. When would you say it's the right time to introduce this very complex equation to ...

Re: Flight Training Guide: Angle of Attack

Ki-ll... There is absolutely no disconnect here. Knowing that you cover 2 miles per minute at 120 knots has nothing to do with knowing or understanding any kind of equation, especially the one like lift equation involving 5 variables. Firstly, the lift equation has less than 5 variables. I'm not su...

Re: Flight Training Guide: Angle of Attack

Please just tell me what's wrong with me using the lift equation, as I described, while teaching. Equations scare people. Simple analogies do not scare people. There is absolutely no need to put an equation on the board for anything in PPL flight training. Simple head math does not count here, is n...

do they accept walk in applicants like wasaya?
You definitely need to have the online form filled out and kept up to date, that is a must. Showing your face after that is extremely beneficial, so is having an internal reference.
