Re: Degrees of flap of landing on floats

I think we are thread drifting.....sorry Tazin....!! The use of flap varies with conditions and pilot abilities....that's one reason for the different available setting..... Absorb the info being offered and discard hard line or radical opinions! Don't forget that the POH has good info!! I intend to...

Re: Degrees of flap of landing on floats

Yes...as I mentioned similar to DeHav... I own and fly a Robertson STOL equiped unit....the STC and the way the ailerons droop or retract are in the manual and operate as you mentioned....rudder or no rudder,roll control is compromised to various degrees depending on conditions...how can it not be w...

Re: Degrees of flap of landing on floats

The c185 with a Robertson STOL droops the ailerons in the same or similar fashion as the DHC2-3-6 ......during gusty winds,rough air conditions,or Xwinds....Roll control is compromised....

I'd suggest that flap 40 may not be in ones best interest when landing in the above mentioned conditions!

Re: Another Norseman...gone

Gentlemen, Corethatthermal has twigged my memory. We were in this discussion years back and I said there was a way to make the small round glassy water lake more manageable. There is no time to set up a normal glassy water landing. Can't do the 250-300ft/min decent. Make a low pass, not 5 ft low bu...

Re: Another Norseman...gone

:smt014 Let me get it right..... approach behind the power curve.....lots of power nose up.... ...... transition to in front of the power curve... stuff the nose over more power.... Doesn’t sound like a stabilized GW approach to me.... Might work for aerobatics or crop spraying or something I guess....

Re: Any Caravan EX drivers out there?

It's been a few years.....but.....simply put..... Arguably the fastest thing on floats....... Huge deep V floats that really cut the rough water and draw a good 3-4 feet of water so careful where you go! Uses lots of water to get airborne! Generally it's just a large Cessna 206 and performs similarl...

Re: Twin Otter trivia: Hours held by the highest time pilots?

I asked Old George that question yesterday......he just had his 86th birthday last week and gave up his medical about 2 years ago. He wasn't sure but thinks he started flying the Twin Otter around 1970 until about 2001/2002..... in the busy years they did 800-1000 hours per year.......so who knows.....
