    Flying to the Bahamas

    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...

    rate-one turn in holding

    Hello, 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...

    Bank indicator

    Quote: 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...

    Bank indicator

    Thanks, 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? best wishes,

    ILS, with or without the Glideslope

    quote 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...

    Ari-Ben Aviator Flight School

    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...
