Re: Line up and Wait

But Ben, here we're not allowed to do the double requirement. Too easy for there to be two landing 737s and you to pull out in front of the second one. It's not allowed. Must be two separate commands, a hold short - landing traffic, and then a line up and wait after the other aircraft has landed. No...

Re: Line up and Wait

I'm getting a kick out of listening to controllers on LiveATC.Net... "Cessna XXXX, Position ... ahhh... Line Up and Wait..." A major air carrier friend of mine pointed out a very interesting/dangerous difference between how it's done in Europe vs. the U.S. -- a U.S. controller will not cle...

Re: Episode #204 "Never Boozled"

I fly a Cirrus, and I have been taught to think in terms of the following limits on take-off: If the engine quits between 0 and 800 feet AGL, I will land straight ahead in the best possible place. If the engine quits between 800 and 2000 feet AGL, pull the BRS parachute. If the engine quits above 2...

Re: Paragliders in the way of Forest Fire operations

While I appreciate your careful response, the air here has been thick with smoke for days, even though the national media (other than MSNBC, ironically... and weird) has been utterly ignoring coverage of the now 7000+ acre fire only a few miles from the city of Boulder, CO. There's a FEMA Type I tea...

Mountain Flight

The weekend after returning from Oshkosh, I was signed up to take the Colorado Pilot's Association Mountain Flying Course. For background, I've been in and out of CAP since my 20's, and have logged a lot of hours looking out the windows of 182's in the backcountry and also the flatland of Colorado. ...

Re: Changing an engine on a Skylane

And I've seen Mike's 182 and his panel makes my 182's panel green with envy. :-) But seriously, Mike has started a very nice website about tooling around in his 182, that deserves to be posted here as "follow-up": http://www.n225m.com/ And congrats on the Instrument Rating, Mike. Can't wai...

Re: Purchasing a condo T hanger

The first thing that pops to mind is: "What's insurance going to run on such a mixed-use building?"

You might want to talk to some insurance companies and see if they'll even insure such a thing for a reasonable price.
