Re: An Aussie PPL looking to get US certificated.

I am not sure you'd need to "convert" your license for a short visit at all. Aren't all ICAO members supposed to recognize each others licenses? When a Qantas plane spends a few days in the US, the Australian crew does it on their Australian licenses. There seems to be a lot of contradicto...

Re: NTSB reports

Thanks Jeb, very helpful. Yes, this flying stuff does not tolerate mistakes well. Survival can be almost random when things go wrong; it would appear at this stage that a five degree course change somewhere along the descent would have had them walking away. Of course, it's still all speculation, bu...

NTSB reports

Probably a good question for Jeb: I just lost another friend to an accident on Sunday. He was flying his homebuilt Great Lakes (N7LM) near Lake Mathews in Corona CA. All we know is that he hit a cell tower (one of those disguised as a tree). I was intimately familiar with the airplane, having helped...

Re: New FAA test questions

I agree, some of the questions are so bad, it forces students to memorize the answers. The graphs for landing/take off distances are a good example; ridiculously illegible. Some of the more long winded flight planning questions have answers that invariably lie halfway between my results. The accurac...

Re: New FAA test questions

OK, I just finished my written test for the Instrument rating and yes, there are some new questions and some-rephrased ones. One answer had such appalling grammar, I could not possibly believe it was the correct answer. I guessed and guessed wrong. A couple of genuine "I just can't remember&quo...

New FAA test questions

Most of us here have at least a Private license, but for those still studying or getting additional ratings - the FAA is revising and expanding its entire pool of questions. Supposedly from around 15,000 to over 100,000 questions. So far only the ATP and Fundamentals of Instruction tests have been a...

Re: Certificated Aircraft that comply with LSA

Hey, I'm spending lots of time flying! And working on my CFI-SP! Found a lovely Cub here at the Flabob Aero Club and can't get enough of it. In response to the original question of this post: http://www.sportpilot.org/learn/lsa/standard_certificate_aircraft.html That's a pretty comprehensive list an...

Re: Certificated Aircraft that comply with LSA

This is an appeal on behalf of the English language: The term "certificated" does not exist. The word is "certified". There are no Certificated Flight Instructors, only Certified Flight Instructors, as there are no "certificated" aircraft, only "certifed" ones...

Re: This repo man grabs GA airplanes

Why does every mainstream media article call anything with a propeller a "turbo-prop'"? Ugh.
