Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

As for training for risks, that of course already happens....I'm simply questioning the value of the spin training, up at altitude, in clear weather, adequately covering that risk in flight when that's not where it happens, typically. Can you clarify what you mean by this? It reads like you're advo...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Squaretail, I respect your viewpoint, and I've clarified my post. Maybe more Sim time, is the answer. Respectfully, those specific trips I'm thinking of, were well beyond the capabilities of the weather for a small single engine piston, at night, beyond the aircraft's and the instructor's capabiliti...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Training for those risk factors entirely is beyond the scope of the private pilot license though, and it’s not useful to lump the problems of PPL holders flying into the dark, or clouds without appropriate training, and giving them the appropriate skill to avoid putting the airplane in an undesirab...

Severe clear and 5 knot crosswind component then?
No, not that, either.
Look, we still have base to final accidents,
Do we? Or are you just looking for an argument?
You'll have to take my word for it. I don't spend my hours searching the CADORS.

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

To fly in IMC you need an instructor with an instrument rating, an aircraft equipped for IMC, which these days means an IFR approved GPS installation, no icing conditions, no convective conditions, weather that meets alternate minima, an approach that you can realistically expect to fly, according ...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

UNLESS proper low speed pattern handling is taught as well -- I don't think its sufficiently covered in the PPL course. I have to ask, how many PPL courses have you audited recently, to know what is taught in them? Now quote me in context..please. I'm suggesting realistic training scenarios--- add ...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

I could easily argue, a student learning spin training in a benign - stalling 152 up at 6000 feet, becoming comfortable with being able to recover, directly leads to the same pilot, later moving up to a SR22, much faster and less benign stall -- later stalling and spinning in the pattern. UNLESS pro...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

We will continue to see stall spin accidents on the base to final turn in VFR But we don’t see very many stall spin accidents on base to final turns, do we? Certainly not nearly as many as we would if we practiced spin entry and recovery at or below circuit altitude, which appears to be what you’re...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Got it. A) Don't teach proper aircraft handling in the circuit, but at 6000 feet where the sight picture is completely different, B) Don't ever teach IFR training in bumpy IMC, but only on severe clear days, where the plane practically flies itself. See a pattern here, and I apologize for the thread...

Re: Spin Recovery Altitude

Where do stall - spin accidents originate from? The base-final turn, at 400 AGL, or in cruise at that safe 4000 AGL altitude? We could seek certification to prevent stall spin accidents entirely: "Flight below 500 feet AGL prohibited, that'd do it! Cessna tried a different approach to the prob...

[ Does the regulator honestly believe a spin entered from the base to final turn, 4-600 AGL, is recoverable? Normally, no. You can't certify for every possible problem a pilot could get into....

Re: Get safe aircraft control before talking to ATC

I agree with your instructor. Start your go around, configure your aircraft, trim for your climb, everything's good, then make your call. There's no particular rush. It's habits. You might be fine now, but once training for your multi Ifr under the hood, performing a go around at minimums, your focu...

Good on you for your entrepreneurial spirit. What you're proposing to do is not going to be easy. You could maybe contact the person that used to run Kasper in NW Ontario.

AC promotes leisure travel during pandemic.

Air Canada has hired social-media influencers to encourage Canadians to fly on non-essential vacation travel in spite of federal guidelines that urge people to stay home as cases of COVID-19 spike across the country. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-air-canada-hires-influencers-to-pr...
