Re: Headset recommendations

I'm seriously considering picking up a Clarity Aloft set. Most pistons and turbines I either wished I was wearing ear plus (even with ANR), or I wore ear plugs underneath my headset or helmet. I think this headset can be used in a wide variety of aircraft .... that being said, I've yet to try out th...

Re: How many hours a week did you fly during your PPL training?

5 weeks. Solo'd after 4 days, and wrapped up the night rating by week 6 with the Cadet program. I wouldn't track it against Cadets because they are gradually studying from Age 12 to 17 before starting training. If you hit the books hard before you touch anything, you can keep up with the Cadet pace....

Re: bluetooth headset adapters

I run a Blulink and swear by it. I move it from my helmet, to my personal headset, to a shared headset. I easily have over 1000 hrs on the unit and it runs flawlessly. I love the versatility for the price of one. I think the sound quality is great, and of course is even better in an ANR headset. Obv...

Re: Too late to hook up for a float gig?

Nope. Many years ago I was hired at the start of September as a swamper/C180. I did some dual that late in the season, and carried on from there. Some guy's are students and leave for school ... so there might be a hand or two required to help close up camps.

Best of luck. I loved float work.

Re: Tail Wheel Endorsement - GTA

As you are probably aware, there is no endorsement or rating to fly a tail dragger. Some guys are very sensitive to using those words when your license blanket rates you on small tail draggers. If you have an airplane, I would gladly come and give you a check out in a day or two. I've got a couple t...

In addition, if you get a type rating using the IATRA, and then you proceed to write your SAMRON, and SAMRA then the exam's will expire. You need to do a type rating using the exams when they are valid in the 24 month period. This is also the case if you only have one written, use the IATRA, and the...

I have had a stuck full throttle before. I elected carb heat hot, one mag, full flaps, and a forward slipping approach to get down to a reasonable approach speed.

Here is some food for thought. If you hold a multi rating, and a single IFR, when you do a PPC on a multi it then becomes a group one. Really? That I did not know!

Re: Business Idea?

There is a market for survey companies and others doing some tricky moves. I am told it is quite a bit of hassle arranging for flight permits among other things for their moves. If you are fluent in moving airplanes from country to country in the east, I think you might have something there.
