Man, alot of you guys on here are a trip.. :)

Doesn't even look like the "tool bag" CFI posted the picture, looks like his student did..

I don't understand why some of you guys have the angst or hate towards other pilots to constantly bust peoples balls..

The way I see it, a low time guy can come here and ask for advice and no one wants to help and then they want to bust his balls for being "low time."

I guess you guys were never private pilots or anything less than a "cool" airline pilot, eh? :)

That was quite a snazy looking cockpit in that 172! Too bad he'll never see another colored moving map like that in te regionals anytime soon. Especially on the Dash 8 from PHX-FLG or the B1900 buzzing around in the Rockies!

Nice observation, but I take pics all the time, so I can't say much on that one!

Yeh, they're in a pretty severe nose down attitude, looks like they're dropping about 2K a minute too.. Ohh. .and the ball isn't centered either!! :) :D

The Dash 8 is a good plane...they're just getting dated, that's for sure. 1000 hrs in them at Allegheny.

They meant the altitude is at 1000msl. Personally 200fpm is not bad at 1000 especially if you are coming in for a landing, but I do agree you shouldn't be taking pictures if you are about to land especially as the instructor.

200 FPM is nothing guys. You so much as hit an airpocket, the VSI will show a climb or descent. Remember, it's an instantaneous instrument. Snapping a pic is no more a chore inflight than having an enroute chart or sectional strung out half way across the cockpit trying to navigate, like we've all done.
