Re: A broken part is not a "conformity" issue - OFFICIAL

Yes, they can appeal. A court decision would set a higher precedent and be binding on the Tribunal. Not quite. TC can file a judicial review with the Federal Court. The FC almost always defers to a tribunal unless the appeal panel allowed an appeal but used an incorrect standard of review (see Frie...

Re: Question for the float/bush pilots!

6) since there is no question 5. A beaver pilot could expect $6000 or so a month. I’m sure someone will correct me if this is out of line. More for a turbo otter, likely closer to $10k. Ranges vary widely. If you’re starting out as dockhand or flying a cub or 180 if you’re real lucky, $3000 or less...

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

604 is for big airplanes (see the text for details). This usage is no different to buying a 210 yourself and registering it under your name. As long as there's no sniff of flying passengers or cargo for "reward" then it doesn't matter who flies in it, and any CPL can fly it and be paid to fly it. W...

Re: Steep Turns At Low Altitude

Sorry, but maybe I missed something. Why are you even contemplating doing steep turns at low altitudes at low speed as a student pilot? Seems like a recipe for disaster.

I've only ever done steep turns at low altitude years ago when I was doing wildlife surveys.

Re: Pay for you PPC - Is it starting already?

Ironically, now is not the time that companies need bonds- pilots will be staying put for a while. If they needed bonds, it was a year ago when pilots weren't staying anywhere for more than a year. Actually it was the opposite. No bonds at Jazz or Encore, so why would you ever sign one at a 703/704...

Re: What are the three biggest reasons for floatplane crashes

All shared the same deafness to advice, an inflated sense of their flying skills and questionable judgement. Everybody can see an accident on the horizon, and no amount of well meaning intervention seems to do any good. I know, because we tried... That is so true. A little while ago we had an accid...

Re: More bad physics - turns

Curious fact: if the aircraft is in level flight going very slowly (think slow flight) it has a high pitch attitude, then the turn is a combination of yaw, pitch, and roll - with the roll actually *away* from the direction of the turn. That's partly why you need out-of-turn aileron doing steep turn...

Re: More bad physics - turns

As Denker points out, things like Coriolis forces, centrifugal forces and even gravity itself are actually pseudo-forces that arise from having to “fix” a non inertial frame to obey the same equations as a true inertial frame. The give-away is that pseudo forces are always proportional to the mass ...

Re: More bad physics - turns

True, but that's not displayed in your last pic. If those forces are correct, the plane would indefinitely slide sideways and keep accelerating. That's not what happens in a turn either. There is nothing in there that would eventually reverse it's course. It won't because the plane is travelling fo...

Re: More bad physics - turns

To me this makes sense, as in a coordinated steep turn, you feel an increased load straight down in your seat (which in a banked turn, is actually on an angle to the horizontal, not straight down). Remember load factor? What you feel is the effect of inertia, hence why centrifugal force is an appar...

Re: More bad physics - turns

Your last diagram won't just turn, it will keep accelerating forever. There needs to be an equilibrium of forces. Well yes it's accelerating- towards the center of the turn- that's what happens in a turn. No there doesn't need to be an equilibrium of forces- only in unaccelerated flight. I think yo...

Sorry, pet peave of mine, but why is nearly every diagram of forces in a turn incorrect? This plane won't turn: https://www.flightliteracy.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/3-11.jpg This plane will turn the wrong way - like an outside loop: https://elearnstation.com/scenari/AERODYNAMICS/res/image_76.pn...

Air force training syllabus

Does anyone have an Air Force training syllabus that they (or rather Allied Wings, or whatever they're called) use to get new pilots to the wings standard (~ CPL standard)? (I'm sure there's a proper name for this course, but I have no idea). I'd love to look at it if you can send it to me. I'm just...

A Cessna glides a lot better than a 737 on the forced approach.
Just curious... how much time does a 737 pilot spend practicing forced approaches in that airframe?
Once every 3 years in the sim.

No a 172 does not glide better than a 737. A 737 has around double the glide ratio as a C172.
