Re: Dressing properly when visiting CP for the first time

If i was a CP, i wouldnt care about how a person dresses up, as long as they agree to come in "proper uniform" when showing up for work.

Re: How to Email a resume

What I dont understand is that even when someone succesfully sends in a resume and gets hired, they are usually off to the next job within 2 weeks or 2 years. So why does it really matter how you send the resume if you are not committed in the first place? A simple phone call or email to the employe...

When you change frequencies wait for a few seconds before you transmit so you don,t walk over somebody else. Engage brain before you engage the radio push to talk. Spreak in normal tone of v...

Re: Uncontrolled ROW

There is no legal requirement to even have a Comm radio at an uncontrolled airport. That is correct. I remember telling that to someone because they were pissed at me because I didnt bother announcing that I was turning final. The reason I didnt call is becuase the frequency was too busy, and the s...

Re: Uncontrolled ROW

my personal opinion is 767 is incorrect. Well Im still puzzled why you think so. I mean, I hear "straight in" all the time from other pilots. I mostly fly out of an uncontrolled airport and usually people enter straight in downwind, and I am sure 95% of the time I hear them announce "straight in do...

Re: Uncontrolled ROW

Straight- means straight. In, means in, or into. Example: you are flying south. The airport is on your left. The runway you want to land on is rwy 36. The pattern is standard left hand. It is an uncontrolled airport. How will you join the circuit? Answer: STRAIGHT IN (shortest route for "legal" entr...

Describe what that means, because in the previous thread some posters said they never heard about "straight in downwind". I know what it means of course, but I don't feel like describing it. :)

Re: Uncontrolled ROW

Hi Rowdy Burns, I voted option 3. The reason for that is because I cant see how someone would be allowed to just come in front of an aircraft that is preparing to land. When established in the circuit, you are pretty much getting yourself set to land. But now the confusing part is in the CAR's it st...

Re: Radio usage plea

I was a little confused as well, but at the risk of earning some well-deserved eye rolling, I will attempt a summary : If two aircraft are both joining the circuit, the mid-downwind has the right of way over the "straight in" downwind. However, if an ac is already established in the circuit ( e.g.)...

Re: Radio usage plea

This confuses me a bit, because it is my understanding that a pilot cannot join the MID DOWNWIND at an uncontrolled airport if you're talking about the 45° angle. If he's joining the downwind without crossing mid field, then he is supposed to give way to aircraft established on the crosswind, corre...

Re: Radio usage plea

Personally, the type I hate is the ones that want to fly and be an airtraffic controller.. Sometimes in an uncontolled environment, switching to the role of ATC can be a solution to solving conflict. For example, lets say you want to join STRAIGHT IN downwind, and there is a potential conflict at t...

Not sure what there is to understand. Check the fluids are enough for the flight, make sure nothing looks bent or broken.

Walk around

Put everything away first. Enjoy yourself, dont make it harder. No need to carry the fuel cup, dip stick, tie down ropes with you as you do the walk around. Saw someone spill fuel on their arms today and it probably got soaked in their sleeves. Completely unneccesary. Thanks for listening. :wink:
