Re: Encore lands without clearance, off frequency.

Shit happens.
Is that the new excuse for a crew landing without a clearance to land?

Re: Westwind

Really, are you kidding me! No choice but to see if it would fly! Is that how you operate airplanes? A wing and a prayer!
No that is not how I operate an airplane it was meant to be sardonic.

Re: Westwind

No access to check and/or deice wing and tailplane Yeh. that is a perfect reason to wreck an airplane and kill a passenger. If it turns out contamination was the cause of this accident they were in the following position. They had no idea there was contamination on the airplane because it was to co...

Re: Westwind

Both of those are pretty large assumptions. O.K. if they are large assumptions would you educate me? If they had a partial power loss why did the crew not report the partial power loss after the accident? If the partial power loss occurred after they were airborne would they not want that to be pub...

Re: Westwind

One thing for sure about the pilot group it is never boring reading all the different thoughts or lack thereof they post on these forums.

My airplane with less than half the pax and full of fuel is no where near overweight. That’s kind of how big planes work.
Big airplanes do not carry freight as well as passengers?

Re: Westwind

This may turn out to be an error on someone's part or just a very unfortunate mechanical failure during a critical phase of flight. Now that there has been a fatality the TSB may take this a bit more seriously and try and find out if it was mechanical error and if it was they may release their find...

Re: CPL flight test slow flight (Cessna172)

As an examiner, I would want to see this skill demonstrated by every candidate pilot, at all flap settings.
That way you can better judge the candidates flying skills ability.

To only use one configuration is only part of the test.

Major 705 ops are infinitely more complex.
In what way are they infinitely more complex?

Can you elaborate and give a few examples so those of us who do not understand the complexity can learn?

Re: What about go arounds

A go around is a normal event when you find the approach is unsatisfactory, if you wait to long and end up wrecking your airplane it was because you did not plan ahead properly for the approach, landing and possible wind changes. As to landing in the first one third of the runway that is nonsense. U...
