Battling a gusting crosswind on final. The reassuring brush of my instructor's arm, in the cramped cockpit, as I pull back the power nearing the threshold. A gratifying "good" heard in my headset as the wheels meet the center line. Flaps coming up and doing it all over again. I'm stuck in the circui...

Speaking as a student, might I suggest teaching VA as well. Why it increases with weight. I couldn't figure that out until it was explained to me.

Grrrrr, I was so angry while writing him, I hope it's coherent. Sir, I am offended that you speak so derogatorily about the Canadian International Air Show yet you did not attend.

Re: Climbing on Downwind?

I'm not going to claim to "know" anyt...

Yes, I just picked up my second one. The styrofoam tail split on the first after the second charge and the flight characteristics were never the same. Kudos to toyrus and the no hassle exchange.

I'm training in Burlington. I chose Burlington because it is convenient and works with my circumstances. I am happy with their operation, facilities, instructors, instructor availability and aircraft. The practice area is fairly close by, even for a 152. Most of my exercises are completed in 1.1 - 1...

PM me if you are looking for a ramp job. I really appreciate the offer. A change to the aviation career would be an incredible move, maybe a chance to finally do something I love. However, I fly a 75 Ton crane for Magna Int. and it pays three times a ramp wage, so I think I'm stuck. Besides, not ma...

Yes. Perhaps accompanied by a 'buyer/seller feedback' forum as well to give kudos (or, heaven forbid, warnings) when deserved. Works well in other forums I belong to.
