Re: Visit to Bowen Island - land at CZBB or CYPK?

I would say it depends on how you plan to get to Horseshoe Bay. 1. If your friend is picking you up, consider Squamish. It is a VFR Daytime Airport but by far the closest to Horseshoe Bay by drive time and ease of traffic. Drive time 45min 2. If you are taking transit to the Ferry you would have to ...

Re: Have you ever landed gear up?

On one of the first times I hopped into the sim doing my initial IFR training I gear up the sim, the instructor let me do it all the way to the ground, lesson learned!

Re: G1000 or similar training

FenderManDan, I recently made the transition from a Collins EFIS system to a G1000 and in all honesty it was pretty strait forward. If you know a 400/500 product the operational concepts of a G1000 are pretty strait forward in terms of setting up Flight Plans, Approaches, SIDs, STARs etc. Reading of...

Re: eye tracking for flight training

If you are training any instructor worth his salt should be able to tell if you are looking at the wrong thing.

Try the universities that still run research reactors or do nuclear research. I am sure they have them and cold offer a lead, however due to US Export regulations you may be SOL.

Poorly written fear mongering. Light on facts big on "ZOMG Li batteries add bad!!!111!!!1!!one" Li batteries are safe if handled correctly. Yes there are issues and maybe but they should not be in the 787 however this is fear mongering by someone who really just wants to cause fear.

Re: "Taxi only" flight

DanWEC you are missing two key points, 1 is starting the AC with the intent to go flying, a ground run you have no intent to the airplane into the air therefore no flight no PIC time. Second AMEs are not pilots so there is nothing for them to log. So lets say your sitting around your local club and ...
