We do repative three minute circuits no higher than 300 feet down wind, after fifty of these they generally have the correct attitudes and height judgement burnt into their motor skills hard drive. Ok, I'm not qualified to comment on the instructors methods of teaching the 'judgement of height' bec...

Funny you mention that. Given the number of people employed by Transport, you'd think that in a "thousand monkey's typing away at typewriters" there would statistically be at least one or two good tailwheel pilots in there, but .... Funny you should mention that. Seems to me, I remember from anothe...

Re: PIREPs

"CB on the departure path runway 08". What's with that? A PIREP for everybody, not just your company, would be nice. I've been in this situation, and it _is_ explainable. I'm launching out off of runway xx in someplace someprovince. I _know_ there are some planes gonna launch behind me, and at leas...

We have our own little drill....as the power comes up on take off, untill we are out of five hundred feet, we chant..."Please God dont quit, please God dont quit....." Engines operating in a 'steady state' tend to keep on running. Engine failures tend to happen when you are re-configuring something...

Re: Pro IFR or Perimeter

At this time of year taking the weather into consideration would it be more time efficient training for the Multi IFR at Perimeter or Pro? Define time efficient. If you mean 'can grind a candidate thru the course in the shortest amount of calender time', they both get high marks. If you mean 'spend...

Re: Multi-Engine Drill

Following is an email I sent recently to a student, which may be of interest: Interesting start to a thread, equally interesting discussion follows. One thing most folks tend to agree on, there's a lot of debate about the 'right' way to do some of this in a light twin. The bottom line tho, average ...

I think I did Golden Eagles initial training, and told him all that stuff then. But my memory is fading.... They all look the same. hehe, if you did my initial training, then you'll know where we did the approach on our 'ifr cross country' during my initial instrument rating. hint, it was done usin...

Does the pitts descend better with the wheels down, or up? Actually, Ray Williams, of Tennessee, has a retractable-gear Pitts. I will ask him next time I am talking to him. hehe, guess my warped sense of humor slips by first thing in the morning. pitts - gear up. http://www.pittspecials.com/images/...

Free advice to any new retractable-gear pilot: ... Keep in mind, though, that Transport Canada says I'm the most dangerous pilot in the country, so everything I've said is probably worthless :roll: Ok, I read your advice, wont argue any of it, can probly debate a point or two, but, it's not worth m...
