Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

I guess they might have added that to sim exercises after TS and AC turned a couple jets into gliders.

Two very good examples of skilled flying but poor decision making.

Re: how long

I wouldn't see ATC as a remote pilot for every airplane. They would just issue instructions on their computer screen during standard ops. If for some reason, the "computer brain" or whatever you want to call it, on a remote plane would fail, then they could focus on that one plane. If you encounter...

Re: Too long radio transmissions

What SOPs include radio calls? I’d like to see them. Most of the stuff that is in the regs or AIM isn’t spelled out in SOPs. It’s a culture thing. Comes from FTUs and gets carried over until someone else in the industry smartens them up.. unless you’ve got two pilots straight out of the FTUs which i...

Re: how long

The most important thing about automation is that it has to be monitored. It’s so important that we have two pilots monitoring it even though none are physically flying it. ATC would be over their head with two aircraft, never mind a dozen. ATC clears you to climb to 350 and on course. All he knows ...

Re: how long

In aviation, the trend is obvious. A 1950's era transport required 4 people up-front; 2 Pilots, an Eng and a Nav. The Engs and the Navs are gone because all of their work was based on pattern recognition. Their jobs were the first to be automated out of existence because the patterns with which the...

Re: how long

Most of the manual inputs are there because of legacy requirements, slow moving bureaucracy, the relatively low cost of manned operation (for now), and the unpredictability of the human condition.

I mean, look at how hard it is for humans to descend via the STAR??

That would cause a gradual year by year increase in overall deaths. Covid 19 will be a spike since it didn’t exist last year whereas baby boomers did. Baby Boomers existed in 1960. Were deaths higher that year? Your logic makes no sense. If a large democratic ages, it makes sense that deaths would ...

Re: What is "lift"?

Most lift discussions are academic. There’s absolutely no way to tell through empirical data what it’s actually doing, and for the most part it’s a complete waste for piloting an airplane. I could teach lift completely wrong and it would have no net effect on the safety of a pilot provided these poi...

Are you familiar with the exponential function? Of course. Apparently, you're not. If the infection rate is less than one, then the exponential function is an exponential decay: the outbreak dies out, and eventually kills nobody. All this hard work - is to try to reduce the infection rate to below ...

Re: Is the Class C Control Zone at Langley Airport Dysfunctional?

ATC forgets that pilots are often the sole managers of air traffic in uncontrolled airspace. Sometimes with more aircraft than those days in YVR where you get held up only to find you’re only one of two planes in the airspace. We also do a lot of ATCs job for them. Must be nice not having to give a ...

Of course. It’s why every infectious deadly disease eventually kills everyone.
