Success! And Many Thanks

Hi Dave, Jack and Jeb In 2007 I started listening to your super podcast. With that hangar-talk in my head, and my childhood dream of flying too, I started flight training in Calgary, AB in March, 2008. Later that year training stopped; challenges with my instructor and challenges at home required I ...

Re: Mig Shoots UAV

Hardly a fair fight. No flares. No chaff. I would have expected the 'blue screen of death', not 'master caution' on a fuzzy screen. "HAL: I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can fee...

Re: Nervous about Solo

Along these lines of a nervous solo... I get the impression that when the instructor says 'pull up to the ramp and let me out', students typically go 'alright'. But many probably taxi out to the active with the 'deer in the headlights' look, so engrossed in the milestone, but also often stricken wit...

Re: hey dude, show me your gun!

During ground school on Sunday, our instructor spent some time talking about 'human factors' in aviation incidents. He notes, as I think Jeb has said on more than one occasion, that two words usually proceed stupid human tricks... "watch this!" (I think Jeb's version is "hey y'all, wa...

Re: UCAP #75 "R-2504"

As Dave notes, they are fellow aviators. :) We have a healthy hawk population in our part of Alberta, well fed by a thriving gopher population. If anybody is ever in southern Alberta, there is a cool Bird of Prey Centre in Coaldale. Hawks, eagles, owls, vultures are plentiful, with great interpretiv...

The stress keeps comin' down... like the plane. :D After a couple of incipient spins, we did a couple of fully developed spins today. The wing drop doesn't freak me out near as bad.
