Re: (Required) Black hole departure.

There is a phenomeum when you continue to rotate on climb-out, the inner ear fluid movement causes you to think you are in a steepening climb and you nose down too much to compensate. Please elaborate, those who know what i am talkin about

Re: (Required) Black hole departure.

The whole idea about the insidious and dangerous nature of a black hole departure is the fact that it is mostly the VFR pilots or IFR rated pilots flying VFR into an area where there is insufficient visual clues to legally and safely fly with reference to the ground. Most 100 hr wonders should have ...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

I pull my prop through in the forward direction. I also do mag checks, so I know I won't have a live mag
Yesterday. I swore the mag check worked, today im in the hospital LOL I always treat the engine as live and do prop starts from behind!

Re: What do you do after landing long in a floatplane

Well obviously, every good float captain has an anchor! Open door, throw anchor out, wait, If that doesn't work, jump into lake after anchor ! :lol:
Ok seriously, digging the heel of the floats in or a sudden turn may do it, however, I am still in favour of an ejection seat !

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Another thing to be concerned about is lack of spin-back on the large continental starter adapters. Putting a newer geared starter or having an old non-geared but hard(er) to turn starter motor will not allow the adapter spring to fully release and the starter motor will be engaged during your fligh...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Yes, the vacuum pump may be damaged by turning the engine backward, though for my experience, this is low probability. The more serious problem is for larger continental engines which have a newer style starter adapter. In this case, by turning the engine backward, you're also trying to turn a worm...

Re: Scariest time as a pilot

A student pilot is taught to land straight ahead after engine failure because the school doesn't teach them how to get back to the airport with various weight, height and environmental considerations. PRACTICE folks!

Re: (Required) Black hole departure.

Everyone knows that the gravitational forces in a black hole ( the centre of the earth ) are soo great, that you can certainly feel the forces on your control column pulling your plane down! The only device to counteract this evil monstrosity is the man-machine interface, called the instrument scan!

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

Looking at the large engine and its position relative to the small original hor. stab, this A/C must be reaching its min. design requirements at both ends of the travel OR did it already exceed allowable design parameters in the nose- down position ( le up ) ? Perhaps the A/C would lose all pitch au...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

A circuit labelled MCAS would have easily prevented this alongside training on the system before the 1st accident. With a CB labelled MCAS , Boeing would have to tell the pilots MCAS existed and whether there must be type training ! Not having 2 sensors inputting allowed Boeing to do away with diffe...

Re: Watch That Overhead Baggage

Accident waiting to happen, actually already happened! At least 1 dead person needs to show up on the radar for the regs/ common sense to be enforced ! Was the crew running duty limits or 1 less attendant is not enough for the flight? Unusual, it seems , to deadhead a flight under these circumstances!

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

The learning point is, how do you react when you discover your error? Do you bypass a diversion airport in the hopes that you can make destination on fumes and not have to admit your error? (Low probability of success, but a desired outcome, common pilot choice) Or do you divert, gas up, confess yo...
