Me.

"Hand flying the portion below mins"
So they are maintaining their hand flying skills by flying the last 10 seconds of the flight? Wow, that's a lot of hand flying.

Re: Updated MCAS ‘Safe’ Says MAX Technical Team

Here is a question that I have.

Is there a downside to being able to hand fly an airplane?

As far as I can determine there are no certified fully automatic machines flying yet, or are there?

Re: Updated MCAS ‘Safe’ Says MAX Technical Team

Beyond any doubt fully automated airline category airplanes is the future of airline flying. In fact I hope to live to see it happen. For me it will be quite the experience to have been in aviation and having actually flown from the age of " Radio Range Navigation " to the age of fully aut...

Re: Updated MCAS ‘Safe’ Says MAX Technical Team

Aviation is dynamic, there are risks, identifying and mitigating risks is the business. Never hand flying is a risk of its own and potentially much more unsafe. Whatever 'danger' passengers endure while a pilot (ahem) pilots the airplane, is easily trumped by the better levels of competence and saf...

Re: Updated MCAS ‘Safe’ Says MAX Technical Team

Pardon my dissent, but we are paid to fly accurately and with as much situational awareness advantage as possible. Your passengers aren't paying for you to practice hand flying beyond what's necessary to complete the flight. Rent a 172 or book a sim slot. Wow. Has aviation come to the place that pi...

The main question is how do pilots gain and maintain stick and rudder skills.
By actually performing them?

Am I to understand that the competency of some foreign airline pilots may have some effect on the possibility of having an accident in a Boeing Max?

Re: Conventional Gear Situation

The best way to handle this in my personal opinion is to ask the insurance company to put you on their insurance with your uncle acting as your instructor for a predetermined number of hours which you would log as dual. After that you would be a named pilot on the insurance and you could if you wis...

Re: Choosing plane for PPL training

What PilotDar said about sums it up, the C150 is hard to beat and affordable.

During the years I owned a flight school I operated just about every light airplane available and I only liked a couple of other ones, the Tomahawk and the Grumman Cheetah.

But the C150 still was the moneymaker.
