Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

I would think that an atheist has these opinions. The majority of homosapiens living on this 3rd rock from the son believe in some sort of god or gods,
I was an atheist until I started flying outside of Canada for a living and then I found my God, Benjamin Franklin who never ever let me down.

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

One thing is clear.

Boeing has a real problem with this airplane and it is no where near solved.

Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

Nothing wrong at all. Lots of different ways to do it. (I misunderstood; I thought you liked to teach power off approaches from the downwind, for ab-initio students.) No problem these forums sometimes are hard to follow what others have said in the past. I have not held a Canadian instructors ratin...

Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

Well I guess that's Chuck out of the window then; he likes throttle fixed at idle. Not on base and final. Below fifty feet above the landing surface I generally close the throttle / throttles.

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

The problem you have is you're quick to infer that anyone who doesn't immediately align with your vision of a society aligned to an identity based, politically correct viewpoint, is immediately a racist, bigoted Nazi.
He sure would be a joy to have to fly with.

True, however learning how to safely fly and make decisions as PIC is paramount to becoming a skilled safe pilot. As to the F.O. positions and movi...

Re: B1900 or flight instruction?

You will get a lot more experience at manoeuvring, stalls, spins, correcting botched landings, taking off and landing in a crosswind, steep turns, reading a chart, forced approaches, and a bunch of other basic stuff, as an instructor, than you would in the right seat of a 1900. Airline flying is mo...

Re: fifty reasons to find a new instructor

you don't obtain more lift in a headwind than a tailwind. There's going to be a difference. It may be minimal, but there will be a difference in power setting and attitude of the aircraft in opposite directions. So if I am flying a constant rate of turn and maintaining the same altitude flying in a...

Re: North Wright Airways 2019/2020

considering they had a King Air flying around with 1 attitude indicator for a significant amount of time prior to losing that one and killing the crew.
When did that happen?

Has the accident report been released?

What would you do for tricycle gear beginners?
Teach them to land power off.

Power is used to correct a landing that goes wrong.

Re: What should a PPL student know before first solo ?

I recall Chuck saying he teaches only power-off landings, to begin with.
Yes, that is how I teach wheel landings to pilots who have never flown tail wheel airplanes.

Once they learn ow to accurately judge height for a power off wheel landings three point landings are a non issue.
