Re: 12,500 co-joe time

Thanks for that Mach.28 but I guess that all of that is old news. I was hoping to hear of any new developments concerning a rumor that I heard on this site about "large" aircraft co-pilots receiving full time for there hours. It makes sense though, having 19+ peoples lives in your hands while flyin...

Re: Getting out of the bond???

STL, you may be right if it's actually principles he's standing up for. There are lots of people who think they are getting "screwed". If, for instance (just an example) a co-pilot gets passed over for an upgrade to captain because he isn't ready to BE a captain, of course he's going to come on here...

Re: Float Plane Discussion!

This might not keep you alive but it might save you from some inconvenience: Learn how to tie a proper bowline, and learn how to tie a rolling hitch. Two knots that you'll use every day, and will not ruin your ropes by having them full of stupid granny-knots that you can't untie later.

Re: Lets have a think tank on improving flight instruction.

I really, really agree with Lurch about upping the requirements for CPL. I think this would result in a better class of pilot all round, which would ultimately enhance everyone's bargaining position, like MichealP was saying. Why should it be easy to get a CPL. A shortage of pilots is not my problem...

Re: X-post - Need Reputable Avionics Shop in Southern AB or S

Your deliberately bad spelling is making that little pain behind my left eyeball throb. I think we can all agree that having a secretary obviates the need for good personal spelling etiquette. Why don't you get one of those little tape-recorders, and make "notes to self" that she can then transcribe...

Re: Floats and salt water... (Maledives)

Exactly... everything around that aeroplane, inside and outside, is your business. Anyway, the guy asked a question about "how do they do that" and not whether you think he needs to know. Maybe he should have asked in the maintenance forum.

Also, Widow, you have repeatedly mis-spelled "coamings".

Re: Training for Cessna 185 Amphib

I'm afraid the insurance on a 185 with amphibs would probably be prohibitive for a flying club. I would be extremely surprised to hear of any available for rent in Canada.

Floatman, I agree with you.

However, I would like to point out that "donning" is spelled with two "n"s.

Re: Lets have a think tank on improving flight instruction.

Below the belt, Hedley!! And flight-management systems must be practically self-aware because they can navigate better than the average pilot. I see YOUR spell-checking software isn't helping you much. There's no apostrophe in "its", as in "spell checking does ITS job". Wait, that sounded nasty. I w...

No, not crazy at all, actually. And you're right. I've spent a lot of time in the hangar watching and trying to learn. And I'd be the first to admit I didn't really understand Met until I spent some time being assaulted by the meteorology in a real plane. However, your approach would work best if yo...

I considered that, and it caused me to think twice, believe me. If I were to be completely honest, I would tell you that the spelling around here seems to have gotten a lot better, and this post, whether or not it was a typo, was the only thing I could find to pick on today.

Yeah, terrific idea, but maybe the six weeks at a time to really learn and understand the concepts is a little skinny... again, that reminds me of the "memorize to pass"formulaic exam routine. I would like to see commercial pilots with a couple of years of real school time. I know it's not rocket sc...

There are some interesting ideas here. May I say also there has been some really good spelling, too. I liked someone's idea of more actual teaching qualifications for flight instructors. I also liked it when someone else used the term "apprenticeship". I would argue that the process of working on th...
