Re: Steep Turns At Low Altitude

There is some very good discussion on this thread but one essential point has not been mentioned. Talking about slipping and skidding is not a lot of use if the pilot does not recognize uncoordinated flight. Personally I think there are actually 3 states of uncoordinated flight , Slipping, Skidding,...

Re: The clubhouse.....

My 02 cents 1) Avcanada is IMO much better than it used to be. Permanently banning about half a dozen notorious haters, flamers, and trolls improved the site significantly. 2) My experience is you get out of the site what you put in. Constructively engage and a lot of interesting and useful informat...

Re: What Rules apply: Pilot for a small INC.?

The 210 will be operating under Subpart 602 period. Each subpart starts with a statement as to who and or what it applies to. It is clear that subpart 604 does not apply to a privately registered 210

Re: What's with the "circle check" before takeoff?

The bigger question here, IMHO, is not "are circle checks dumb" it is what should FTU's be telling their students. Personally I don't believe a circle check should never be done. I can envision circumstances, albeit rare ones, when the combination of aircraft visibility constraints, taxiway vs runwa...

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

Yes and no ! You've been given the clearance to descend to 3000' and intercept on present heading and clear for the approach...and then comm failure ! So ATC calls you back for acknowledgement, you can hear ATC but you can't transmit ! :) I know it is far fetched ! When ATC sees you sqawking 7600 a...

Re: IFR Comm Failure before Approach - NIZUS Question

If I am answering the exam question I would climb to 3800, if I was actually flying this profile I would descend to 3000, intercept the Loc and GS and then land, for all the reasons DANWEC presented

Re: Syllabus for Gp 3 IFR + PTR questions for freelance CFI

Naestr The FTU Instrument Rating course isn't really designed to make you areal world IFR pilot it is designed to pass the ride in the minimum time and cost. This is not unreasonable as 90% of the pilots taking the course are commercial pilots who's first job will be right seat on a Navajo . King Ai...

Re: Class II to Class I

To be eligible for a flight test you have to meet the knowledge and skill levels outlined in CAR 421. CAR 421.72 does not specify any time constraints only the requirement to hold a Class 2 flight instructor rating. Theoretically you could do the Class 1 ride the day after your class 2. However TC t...

Re: Spins before solo?

I'm curious, I don't think it's actually been brought up yet. What is the argument for not teaching spin recovery before a first solo, aside from the possibility that it may not be a legal requirement? That's a question worth asking. The main reason, for me, would be when a student is learning to f...

Re: Spins before solo?

The turn onto final scenario , I think, is generally is caused by the incorrect use of rudder to tighten the turn and thus cross controlling the aircraft. There is no need to add 10 knots for safety. Learn to fly a co ordinated turn, and know when to do an overshoot if you are not lined up properly...

Re: Spins before solo?

Unless things have changed, spin training must be done a minimum of 2000 AGL, or higher if the AFM requires it. But I agree that the aim should be to stay out of a bad situation. Easier than trying to get out of one. And things like making certain the student has precise airspeed control, and know ...

Re: Spins before solo?

Being able to recognize when you could be in trouble is as important if not more than being able to get out of it. Teaching spins at low level may help avoiding them in the first place. At the risk of being rude teaching spins at low level is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Not to mention bein...

Re: Spins before solo?

Personally teaching "spins" should only be done in the context of an introductory aerobatic course. Teaching "spin avoidance" should he done pre-solo and reviewed throughout flight training using scenario based examples. Teaching spins and teaching spin avoidance are two completely different exerci...

The Importance of Seat Height in Initial Flight Training

This came up in recent discussions with a new instructor. The student was having trouble landing. One of the things I asked was if they ensured the student adjusted their seat the same for every flight.
