    Newest ATP pilot

    I envy you! Congrats my friend, congrats. How was the ride anyway? Pretty tough? Yeah the examiner is right. You can time an ILS if you want, but it may cause more trouble than its worth, so you don't have to at all. The FAF for an ILS is GS intercept. The lightning bolt. The FAF for the...

    CFI Maneuvers

    My question pertains to the maneuvers that are on the CFI Practical test, the checkride. Specifically spins. I have heard a couple of things. I heard that you have to do spins on the ride itself and roll out on a specific heading? I have also heard that Spins on the checkride are not...

    Cessna 414/421 New Job Help

    Climb Rates The climb rates on both 421's and 414 is not real great. With twin one would expect the climb rate to be good. well you can write that off with a 421. Not going to happen. However a 421 is faster then a 414 for sure. When you taxi you may need to ride the brakes. The engines are...

    Safety Pilot

    Requirements to get to fly Corporate

    Riddle I'm a big fan of Riddle! I was planning on going to the Prescott campus. I even went out and looked at it. Man I just couldn't handle that. I come from Western Kentucky where it is humid. My skin was flaking off out there and my lips were black in places! Plus it was a major culture...

    aggipilot is right Just as precaution I have regularly scheduled eye exams with my optomitrist every 6 months rather than every year. I have one today as a matter of fact.

    Aussies lauch scram-jet

    Groom/Nellis Who knows what they are doing out there. There are no aliens I can tell you that! But the aircraft they may be designing may impress us all one day. The reason I feel that they are designing something fantastic out there is the trouble they go to keep the place secretive. They have...

    Timing is everything... Well not really.

    missed Declaring missed and flying missed. Yeah that can be confusing. Breaking off on 3 mile final could be a problem as one poster stated. There are towers out there. Not to mention, when you are on the ILS runway 20C or 2C approaches at Nashville BNA, you could hit another aircraft if you...

    Timing is everything... Well not really.

    ohhh ok ahhh ok, Sorry I didn't realize it was strictly an airline question. I just thought it was a regular ILS question. My wording was a bit sketchy there. When I meant "Difference between a landing and a missed to the alternate". I was just reffering to the minimum altitude, and visibilty...

    Timing is everything... Well not really.

    ILS approaches are timed approaches. Timing should be done as you cross the FAF inbound on the approach. However if all is well on the approach timing shouldn’t play a big factor. An ILS approach can be completed with a dysfunctional glide slope. LOC minimums are published for the approaches in...

    Cessna F406 Caravan II

    It looks like a..... It looks like a mutant Cessna 441 crossed with a PA 31. Its tail is in a different location then the conquest. They both have conventional tails, however the conquest's tail is lower on the airframe. Interesting. John
