Re: My First ILS to minimums

If he was a professional there would be an argument for "stabilized approach", as far as I can tell he is hand bombing his own private plane. Since when does being a private pilot in your own aircraft defer the need for a stable approach? C'mon. Don't be a dick. If I want to carve it in tight in my...

Re: My First ILS to minimums

As soon as there was a link to a video I knew there would be a lot of perfect avcanadians criticizing the hell out of it. The video is from the back seat, no one knows what the view was from the front seat except the pilot. Yup, he didn't have it nailed. He did however shoot it to mins, get the runw...

Re: AC Lining Up with a Taxiway SFO...?

I can see how this might all be a lot of hoopla about nothing. Flying the approach offset to the right is the correct procedure. I've landed 28R before and kept it offset maybe a little longer than necessary due to another airplane off my left wingtip. Given that 28R is not the usual departure runw...

Re: TBM Gear collapse on take off

You're inventing terms and facts while ignoring basic flight principles. Mr. PDW, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyon...

Re: Nieuport Replica crash

I got this PDW The airframe speed where rotation groundspeed immediately reduces by turning to the crab angle thru ground effect and at the same time by any amount that the straightline groundspeed lessens in turning up into the climb angle (just when groundspeed needs to be doing the opposite).

Re: TBM Gear collapse on take off

I just want PDW to know I took off with a 7kt tail wind today. By 400' it was about 30. I was neither shocked nor surprised, and the airplane suffered no noticeable loss of performance. And I lived.

Re: TBM Gear collapse on take off

I spent some time checking the likelihood of the tailwind INCREASE at the time of this accident. Three or four surface stations evidence INCR very well in the immediate area right then (12:00-12:15pm), NNE 13-15 kts max at surface. The "27 min" before was 010@8kts (in the report), the next BLI meta...

Re: TBM Gear collapse on take off

It's a TBM, it didn't crash because of a god damn tailwind. The tailwind had 0 to do with the crash and the FAA was smart to leave that out of the report. I have yet to read an accident where PDW didn't bring up wind. He's got a wind boner. Maybe if the guy didn't eat such a big breakfast, or had ta...

To the airline guys out there Does the company allow you to and fly the plane in? Such as an ils approach to minimums.

Again, there are still a lot of airlines accepting Canadian passport holding pilots in China.

The Chinese government is likely in favour of this tax, as Chinese money leaving china is a problem right now.
