    Aviation on a non-aviation resume

    I'm making a non-aviation resume, and I was wondering how aviation looks on a non-aviation resume. How much would employers care, if at all? If say, I have a CPL with 300 hours, but I'm applying for an internship that has nothing to do with aviation (investment banking), how far up on the...

    On the roll???

    I read somewhere that after the Tenerife Disaster of 1977, you arent supposed to use the word "take off" on the radio unless youre receiving or accepting take off none of the "holding short of 29 ready for takeoff" stuff either. If you arent familiar, in 77 a KLM pilot used...

    Such thing as Insument ASES?

    Well, it's kind of hard to fly an ILS approach onto a pond . . .

    Such thing as Insument ASES?

    A C-172XP with floats I'm looking at says its IFR certified. Can a seaplane actually fly in IMC? I don't get it? On resumes it would say Instrument ASEL. Is there such thing as Instrument ASES?

    Knocking out Complex/High-Performance/Seaplane at once

    I'm thinking of getting my seaplane rating in a 172XP. It has a constant-speed prop, a 210HP engine, flaps, and floats, making it 1) a seaplane 2) a complex airplane (doesn't need RG b/c its a seaplane) and 3) a high-performance aircraft. My question is, with the complex endorsement here, does...

    Aerobatics in the Chicago area?

    Do any of you know of a school that teaches Aerobatics in the Chicago area?..and I'm not talking about Sundowners with the word "Aerobatic!" written on the side in MS Paint. Windy City Flyers at PWK used to have a Super Decathlon, but they don't anymore. The closest option seems to be Blue Sky...

    Checkride: Pass

    Agreed completely. The first thing my examiner said was "I'm not here to bust your chops, so I'm going to go ahead and tell you everything I want you to do beforehad so there will be no surprises." I was very much at ease after that.

    Checkride: Pass

    I'm the OP for the thread below about asking the examiner to take control in a real emergency... I passed my checkride! I didn't even have to address it during my preflight briefing. My DE said that in an event of a real emergency, I am still PIC, and he will do everything necessary to assist...

    Ask examiner to take controls in real emergency

    Tomorrow is my private pilot checkride, and my DE is a retired continental airlines pilot. In my preflight briefing is it okay to say, "In a real emergency, I would like you to take the controls since you have thousands of hours more experience than I do. I will take care of the radios and...

    JetBlue emergency, no NTSB report

    I actually paid $10 to read and write in this thread about Palwaukee Flyers notorious owner Jim Kwasek, where I trained and got scammed $10,000 because I didn't know any better. You don't have to be a smartass just because I fly a Cessna and you're an ATP.
