Re: Coordinate that turn to final

2gal = unuseable = not shown on instruments? How do you know if you’re below 2gal if there isn’t any indication? Why don’t 172 drivers fly around on “Both” during all regular flying? Not playing dumb, just trying to understand the 172. I understand how being able to isolate a tank is beneficial in c...

Re: Coordinate that turn to final

As I said, I don’t really care what this particular individual pilot did or didn’t do, except that he or she landed with one dry tank. How do you know it was “dry”? Weren’t you part of a big thing about usable/unusable/measureable fuel? I’ll admit, I know nothing of Cessna fuel systems other than w...

Re: Coordinate that turn to final

it shouldn’t have to be “handled”, it’s avoidable. That’s true for any number of things in aviation. People make mistakes then need to work their way out of bad situations they’ve put themselves in. 99% of the time it all works out but every now and then someone gets bit, sometimes hard.

Re: Checklists

this thread in currently on a rabbit trail of a lifetime. No it doesn’t matter what training aircraft you start with. Just be willing to learn, and try to fly as many different types as possible.

Re: Is the trainer you fly and start with important to an career in aviation?

We agree, mostly.

Airspeed is life, especially close to the ground. I think you're discounting the importance of airspeed awareness.

Otherwise, I'll agree with everything you said.

Photo fly, You're the one who referenced airlines, not me. I've never flown anything with more than two seats. My point was that attitudes aren't constant for a given performance. Attitude flying is certainly important, but taking away basic instrumentation isn't helping anyone. An altimeter is ok b...

Re: Does the trainer you start with important?

if you were getting slow how would you get the student to correct? You would have to either have a discussion about feel or just tell them to add or remove power. But of course if a student is correctly taught to look at the horizon and fly the aircraft attitude, instead of the instruments, they do...

Re: Does the trainer you start with important?

Why is there no AOA indicator in training airplanes? 'Cause it would become one more system to lull a student into complacency that they can depend upon an indication, rather than learning to feel the aircraft. I think well installed AoA systems are probably beneficial for carrier landings, and som...

A lower-than-normal circuit altitude usually means lower ceiling than normal (obviously) and maybe more importantly, ...

Re: New hope for the D Jet?

Looks like the poor man’s Pilatus.

I suspect this won’t do so well in the military training market. Slotted between the G120TP and the T-6, PC-21, and EMB-314, all of which already have simulation and support partners and operators, it’s going to be a tough sell.
