Re: Intrersting fuel management issue

Snip.... After Landing in -------- it was determined that the fuel indication disparity was a fuel indication problem and fuel levels were never physically checked. Snip..... What does not checking the fuel AFTER AN INDICATION OF A PROBLEM have to do with the size of the load? Blatant incompetence ...

Re: You've always wanted to try it.

I don't understand why everyone is so picky. Must be something that happens when you have to fly for a living :)
If it's got wings on it I want to fly it. Heck, parasails don't even have wings and I like flying those. :)

How long does it take you to be comfortable flying in less than ideal weather? I don't want to push the weather now as a student but maybe I have to do so after I become a commercial pilot....

Re: i thought this was good

Having lived in Silicon Valley and San Antonio, Texas, I always figured if you made under 60K/year you were way better off in Canada, between 60-250K there was no difference and over 250K you were way better off in America. Of course over $250K/year, does it really matter? You cannot just base in on...

Re: Maintenance Lien ??

File a lien. You only have 30 days. It means the plane cannot be sold until the lien is cleared. You may have to wait a long time for your money but you will get it. Ensure documentation of what you did exists, for example an entry in the technical log.

Interesting how posts disappear. From the website quoted above. For example, if you choose a waiting period of 180 days you will pay $337.50 per year (plus tax where applicable) for $1,000 per month of coverage.

Something similar to the above was used during my float ticket to "lock in" the correct landing attitude and alignment.

Re: Interesting Incidents From Yesterday

I believe you should be able to land in a 16G21 crosswind in a 150 if you use the correct inputs. However I myself probably wouldn't bother flying in those conditions in a 150, even though I'm fairly certain I could land without breaking the plane or going off the runway. If my crosswind landing sk...
