Can you post the formula here ?
Sure:

True Altitude = [Indicated altitude - ground elevation/1,000] X [Difference between actual temperature and ISA temperature for cruising altitude] X 4 feet = altitude to deduct from indicated altitude

Re: ATPL Prep

The books are well worth the cost, and IMHO, those two books alone will get you through the exams So, if you can get the 2 books, you don't need the seminar, in your view, but clearly the trick is getting the second book, which is unpublished, and which you can only get if you pay for the full semi...

Re: SAMRA/SARON - my guide to studying

Based on TC's current ATPL Study and Reference Guide, this material is primarily SARON, although the dispatch limitations question is probably SAMRA.

Re: Logging Instrument time

And actually, the converse of that fits into my argument that flight over a solid cloud layer is loggable IFR. It's fine in theory to say that you can fly without instruments above a solid layer, but in reality, you can't. You can't navigate or pick a heading and figure out your course by looking a...

Re: Sector definition

A "SECTOR" (for purposes of line indoctrination) is a flight composed of a take-off, departure, arrival and landing AND including at least a 50 NM enroute segment. In the case of a cruise relief pilot, a sector is considered to be only the 50 NM enroute segment of a flight.

Re: Should I find a new instructor, or is this a normal first few lessons?

Your instructor seems like a bit of a slacker to me based on your comments. Asking polite but astute questions can work wonders at getting a slack instructor to shape up and be more professional. Try asking your instructor this: "Say, I notice when starting up, we never shout "all clear" before star...

"Standard Weight Passenger"? The TC AIM says you are not supposed to use standard weights for aircraft having a passenger seating capacity of less than 5 (TC AIM RAC 3.5.7). So you must therefore use the actual, estimated or volunteered weight of the passenger. Maybe your passenger weighs much less ...
