Re: Recession incoming

The difference is that the taxes in Europe and the population density in Europe cause those other expenses to be much lower. So yes, the type of expenses are the same, but the cost is a lot different. From my experience, assuming a 3000 dollar monthly salary which roughly equals a 3000 eur monthly ...

It’s more than big enough to do touch and goes on, assuming the land developers haven’t put up another flag pole or light post up again at he end of the runway.
As long as you don't touch down half way down the runway and slow down too much, but I guess that applies to a lot of runways.

When he was going up for circuits in the school plane, he called downwind for a T&G, when his instructor came on the radio and said, "No touch and gos! Only stop and backtracks!" I don't think I'd trust a student to do T&Gs there. Have you ever flown there? On a hot day with the 1.6% upslope it can...

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

It depends on the phone. I looked at my buddies Iphone X yesterday because he got woken up by it as well, and after some reading, apparently with IOS 12 and above, the function in the notification setting was removed, so you no longer have the option to turn off the alerts, thus the only option is ...

Re: C172 Oil Temp

Usually, if the aircraft has flown within about the last hour, you probably don't need to prime. If unsure, just try without priming and see what happens. ..it's better to underprime than overprime.

Re: Full flap landing rquired

Avatars thanks for the clarification from a official standpoint. I agree with you guys as long as you make a safe landing then it should be fine I don't mind landing 0 flap and 20° is ok. I don't like 40° it flies like a brick and you really have to ad power to remain on glideslope at 60 knots. We ...

Re: Boeing's "Battle over blame": reduce power or not?

Seems to me that basic airmanship would tell you to reduce power and control the airspeed.... does that have to be spelled out in a manual or checklist ? Wouldn't basic airmanship tell you not to reduce the power if you're struggling to keep the nose up, and you know that reducing thrust will cause...

Re: (Required) Black hole departure.

As I understand " black hole departure " it means there are no visual situational clues after departure only blackness. So how can this be a VFR departure? Well the term "black hole" is usually used for approaches, not departures. It refers to the visual illusion of the runway lights, resulting in ...
