Re: UCAP443 - Domestic Dispute Landing

UCAP Gang, The topic of the “militarization of GA” came up late in this episode, so time did not permit to fully address the subject. Perhaps a follow-up in a future episode would be beneficial. It is an interesting topic. In my perspective, as one who has been wearing a civilian airline pilot unifo...

Re: Electronics

Deano60, First, congratulations and all the best as you pursue your flight training! You have embarked on an adventure which will be one of the greatest of your lifetime. And remember, time spent in flight training is not subtracted from your lifespan, as Dave is fond of saying. This is a great topi...

Re: UCAP #438 - "Abby-Normal"

Jack, The Hacienda Hotel Cessna 172, which set the endurance record mentioned in the podcast, has been restored and is hanging from the ceiling in baggage claim at LAS McCarran. I walk past it each time I go to work at McCarran. There is a small museum display adjacent to the Cessna on the upper lev...

Re: UCAP #438 - "Abby-Normal"

Again, another great episode. Regarding the Air Canada event, I agree with Jarheadpilot82. Also a Boeing driver in my day job, we always back up a visual approach with electronic lateral and glidepath guidance, whether an ILS or FMS-generated reference. That is company policy, good airmanship, and a...

Re: UCAP 400 Bravo

Jeb, Jack and Dave, Thanks for a beautiful episode! The audio quality in flight was outstanding. James and Amy were their usual best as guests and the content, as usual, excellent. After listening to a great majority of the 400+ episodes, this stands out as one of the best. I felt as I was flying wi...

Re: Episode 372 - Airbus Engine Failure on Takeoff

C5 Guy - The 777 is a marvelous machine. I hope my air carrier buys some one day. The DC-8 was a bit of a beast with a V1 cut on the number 4 followed by a V2 cut on the number 3! The "device" for responding to the yaw was the size 10 shoe pushed full forward. Other sizes also worked well ...

OFLOTW in the Pacific

UCAP Gang, Here is an Off Field Landing of the Week complete with video of the deployment of the Cirrus parachute system. One of my airline's 757 crews was en route to Honolulu from LAX when they became involved in the off field splashdown of a Cirrus SR22. Standard procedure when operating in the C...

Re: Ep#372 Instructors---New or Old

I have been both a young and an old-ish instructor, but I prefer the young version of myself more, for reasons having nothing to do with aviation! ;) I agree that if possible, and assuming the given that we are talking about quality instructors, exposure to variety is good. This need not be exposure...

Re: Episode 372 - Airbus Engine Failure on Takeoff

As a fellow 757 driver, I have to complement you on your great post, Terry. Excellent description of the performance factors in the takeoff profile. Another way of looking at assumed temperature or derated thrust takeoffs is that we "reverse engineer" the math to ensure we have the perform...

Re: Question for Dave

David Clark. I have two of them. One is 28 years old, the other 26. I still use them routinely. I sent the older one (which had logged about 7500 hours and had been subjected to repeated abuse) back to the David Clark service center to replace the attachment point on the boom mic and fix the volume ...
