Was that power on or off? I did all my spins power off, but I imagine if you added power then that would use up some of your right rudder.
I don't recall now, but I suppose it's possible it was with power on. The only "spins" I really recall with power on were snap rolls (it was an Aerobat).

Re: Spin Entry Controls

150 will spin fine to the left or right using just elevator and rudder input. Maybe it was rigging, but this one wouldn't go to the right unless your foot was pushing the rudder pedal to the floor and the yoke pushing your navel into the baggage compartment. To the left, you could spin all day with...

Re: Steep turnback fatal for ultralight

Any ultralight guys here. Perhaps they are more concerned about landing straight ahead into the trees as there is less facial protection from branches. The average density of trees is still lower than the average density of dirt. Both may be higher than the average density of an ultralight pilot, b...

Re: Stuck above the clouds with no instruments

How does one get up above cloud in an airplane with a skid ball that could fail? I mean, I get not allowing electronic instruments, that might fail due to an electrical gremlin, or a vacuum gryo that could fail for any number of reasons. But a skid ball? All of the Cessnas have them, and they're not...

Re: Spin Entry Controls

I remember my instructor showing me spins to the left and when I asked about spins to the right was told "the 150 doesn't really spin to the right". I asked if I could try and he said "sure, go ahead". So right at the break I gave it full left aileron and the right wing dropped like a streamlined gr...

Re: Flight training in your own plane - costs

Well, i'd still say it's easy to *generalize*. It's hard to be absolute about it though. I wouldn't say "never learn in your own plane", in fact i've recommended the exact opposite to a number of people and it's worked out swimmingly. But for 90% of the population, going to a flying school is the ri...

Depends on the AME. Some are very happy to learn you a lot, while they work on your airplane, and they do a good job of educating you.
Fair point. That arrangement is not very common from what I understand, but it's good if you can get it.

Really, if you don't know anything about airplanes, you're better off in a flying school flying their planes. If you're growing up in a flying community where you have parents or friends in a flying club, and are learning about planes along the way, you probably do know enough to get a deal on a use...

Re: Experimental parts on certified aircraft

Isn't he an AME? An AME is allowed to sign off mods to his own aircraft? The quote above says there's "no STC" to add the light, and "to hell with the regs," he's doing it anyway. Which suggests that if he's an AME, he knows it's against the regs somehow. And yet, he's doing it anyway. But hey, I g...

NOT 1 post suggested talking to your AME ! Sure, go ahead, put unapproved parts on an A/C but don't expect your AME to do the next annual. Expect him to lock the doors when you come around ! When it's obvious that putting the desired part on the plane flies in the face of regulations, why would any...

Nor would it affect structure, airworthiness, or performance. Nor is it likely that anyone would ever ask you about it if you just installed it and flew on.

Re: Fatal Crash - Gabriola Island - Dec 10, 2019

It does seem rather odd. The track shows what looks like a normal cross-country approach to Nanaimo, coming north around 4000' ish, then descending to 2000' north of Gabriola, but the speed didn't increase, so maybe the power was pulled back for the descent? That doesn't really suggest that an engin...
