Re: Careful if you lose hydraulics

I'm curious why the crew decided to go ahead and taxi with hydraulic problems... What's the big deal with shutting down on the taxiway and wait for someone to pick you up??

Re: Careful if you lose hydraulics

I thought hydraulic fluid was flamable. Why risking a fire by taxiing to the hangar when you can shut down on the taxiway and let the guys pull your airplane??

As for what's a taxi speed, high speed exits are designed to be taken at 40 kts.

Definitely you need the ADF, anyone who thinks a GPS is better than an ADF should have their license suspended.

I don't know if I have a point to specify what you described is just basic skills known as cockpit organization and evaluated during the PPL flight test. I believe that if you would consider a GPS as a relief in a 125NM radius from your base in a tin can, unless you fly in extreme SVFR or IFR-wich ...

Re: Lets turn off the GPS

Three words: Watch - Map - Ground Military pilots aren't allowed to use any nav aids or GPS until they get their Wings . I used the GPS on the Harvard 2 to keep my taxi speed below 10 kts - that's it. Low level navigation involved flying 500' AGL, 240 Kts G/S and arriving at each turn point within ...

Re: Gear up landings - why not try the grass?

A good reason not to land on the grass is the fact that grass isn't usually level and even, as opposed to a concrete runway. If your aircraft has a higher landing speed, it might make it thumble around.

Re: Logging IFR at night in the Arctic

I log 1/2 of my air time as actual at night when flying Instruments (doesn't mean I'm under an IFR flight plan, if I shoot a practise approach, I'll log half of that time as actual). That's the way we do it where I fly!

IIRC, only officers can work tower, terminal and PAR. Others can work ground only, so I guess the license within the military can be different. There are quite a few ex-military controllers in the Nav Canada world, but not sure about the other way around. You might want to check that for PAR contro...
