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 ...

Re: Annie Best Higdon (1955-2014) RIP

Dave, Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Annie, the way you spoke of her gave us a sense of the wonderful woman she was. I found it touching that you always refer to her on the podcast as your "bride", an endearing term that shows how you valued your marriage above all else. As A...

Re: Lesson frequency for private pilot training

I'd be interested is hearing Jeb, Jack and Dave discuss this topic. This is a great question. Let me share my thoughts: When I was an instructor, those students who flew 2 or 3 times a week progressed through the program more quickly (obviously) than those who flew only on occasion. Moreover, the hi...

Re: Ep# 362

Great episode! What makes Uncontrolled Airspace stand out is that this podcast goes to Oshkosh and permits those of us who cannot attend an opportunity to "live" Airventure while driving to work in the morning. Thanks guys! I was at OSH the week prior to the convention this year, and even ...

Re: MY newest airplane

Mike, You are to be congratulated! Taking raw material and crafting a flying machine, particularly one which has performed so well on its first flight, is a rare accomplishment. Few efforts make more of a contribution to aviation than building and flying your own airplane. It's been 17 years since I...

Re: DUATS Under Threat?

Good stuff Pilot Bill. For those who have Foreflight, I think your approach is worth trying. I do not have Foreflight, so I rely on web-based DUAT for weather and the AOPA planner for flight planning and filing. A bit old school, but I will catch up with the iPad eventually.
