Re: short field landing (Stabilized Approach)

If we consider non emergency landings, there has to be sufficient runway to take off again. Yes, but not necessarily with the same conditions. Land at max weight and take off near empty. Land as short as possible on skis on the small strip next to your AMO to install the wheels. Land in zero wind o...

Since you mention karma in your original post - CBRRider I ask you to think of yourself in the future. Ten or Fifteen years from now. There you are zooming along at FL410. Autopilot is engaged and since it is your leg the First Officer is completing fuel checks and working the radio while you sip o...

Re: short field landing (Stabilized Approach)

You're not going to fail the exercise if you change the power on final. If you reduce a lot of power, and then a minute later you add that same amount of power again for no reason, you'll lose points. If you have to adjust the power slightly to account for changing winds or to make a small correctio...

Re: short field landing (Stabilized Approach)

I don't think small power changes are an issue. From what you describe, I have the impression they want to avoid people levelling of before the treshold and dragging it in, which is a technique that works really well but probably lead to some close calls during flight tests, when done improperly. A ...

Re: Covid Jobhunt: To send resumes or to wait until things settle down ?

What's the dilemma? Just send them out. You don't risk anything and in 6 months you can say "I've been trying to get in with you guys for months" which sounds good in an interview.

Re: A Twist on Medical

Hmmmmm.... sounds like someone has completed their journey to the dark side... Don't you think you are being a little bit harsh here? He lied, but I have the impression he's trying to do the right thing with his aviation medical. That should not be discouraged.

Of course a more interesting questions is what kind of pilot someone who would lie to his doctor and employer to skive off work for months on end would make.
But it was a suggestion on reddit :supz:

Re: A Twist on Medical

You would be in trouble if you lie on your aviation medical. As far as I know there are no questions as "did you ever lie about an illness" or "did you ever fake an illness". So you say "no", you never had migraines, assuming that is the truth.

Did your family doctor ever found out you lied to him?

Ask the person that requires the certification. It is not a TC requirement. You can always print it out and sign it yourself.
