That is going to be a nice trip. Remember VFR at night is not permitted in the Bahamas, and before entering the ADIZ on your way back you need permission from ATC (Miami Center). Needless to say that you will have to clear customs in both countries, That is Freeport or Nassau in the Bahamas...
I flew into Stuttgart, Germany the other night in a pc12 (single engine turbine). A snow shower moved over the airport at our arrival. The traffic controller asked most of the big jets about their comments on the braking action. Nearly everybody replied with: "braking action is...
Soon, I will be visiting Chicago for a couple of days. Does anyone know a nearby GA airport and a flight school where I can rent with or without instructor a cessna 172 for a sightseeing flight?
Any recommandations are highly appreciated.
Can anyone tell me what the operational cost of a 767 approximately is? I know This depends on the airline etc. But what does fuel cost per gallon, maintanance, crew, landing fees ect.
I know this might be a difficult question to answer, but a rough estimate would be fine!
I am studying aeronautical engineering. During this study I have to research a case of a B767 losing two hydraulic systems in flight.
The B767 has three independent hydraulic systems. If the Left and center system would fail, the following faults will occur:
stab trim: 1/4...
Can someone inform me about transatlantic procedures?
Is it true that one needs a seperate clearance to cross the Atlantic seperate from the IFR clearance?
Whith whom are you in contackt over the atlantic and how often are you expected to give a position report?
What kind of seperation...
A couple of weeks ago I learned on this board that fast planes do not use a turn coordinator because of the high speed. A standard rate turn needs an excessive bank.
How do big planes fly a holding, what bank do they use and how long does it take to complete a 180-turn in the holding...
While there is an indication of quality of turn, it's typically a nice-to-know function (and has bearing only during an assymetrcal thrust situation, such as an engine shutdown). Normal flight in most turbojets consists of keeping the feet on the floor, or letting them sleep on the rudder...
But if jet's don't make standard rate turns, what kind of turns do they make, and how can a pilot see whether he is flying a coordinated turn?
Furthermore, if the inclinometer is incorporated in the sky pointer, how can you see whether you are flying a coordinated turn?
I have a Garmin 92, which I'm very happy with, It doesn't have approaches or a map with roads and lakes, only airspaces, but thats good otherwise the little screen would be to busy. a friend of mine has an Laurance which is also very nice, but we discovered that my batteries lasted longer.
If the glide slope fails you must go missed. The only reason you start your time is to know where the MAP is. You need to think of that plate as two seperate approaches.
There are also loc only approaches without timing. A DME distance can define the MAP as well. In case The GS would...
That crash had nothing to do with poor maintenance, but with an examinar who pulled the throttle just after TO. They both died!
In my opinion, the maintenance is good and you can fly 24H a day. The think they're professional, but they're not.
That three people can log PIC at the same time...
I got about 10 months ago my CPL Multi Engine, and now I'm considering getting my CPL Single Engine.
Do I have to pass again the CPL-written or an oral, or can I just do the check-ride?
Thanks in advance!
I was flying from San Antonio to Dallas February 31, 21:45 CST and just around Waco I saw a shooting star, very bright from horizon to horizon and East-Southeast bound! (direction Florida?)
I asked Waco app. if he knew something about the shuttle activities but he didn't know, two other...
