Cessna Cardinal 177 RG II v. Piper Arrow III (70s) v. Piper Arrow III (brand new) by [email protected]
So I've decided to buy a plane (in July of 2007), and I've come to a dilemma. I learned to fly on a Piper Arrow and very much like that plane, though I haven't flown one in over a year, what I have been flying is a Cessna Cardinal 177 RGII, very nice plane, great handling and a pleasure to fly as...

I give up, after many, many years! by Jay Somerset
I give up -- not flying -- but subscribing to this NG. It is just too riddled with crap and backbiting, to the point that it carries little if any useful exchange of interest to active pilots. It isn't worth the effort any more, even with multiple kill files. So good riddance to 90+% of the...

We Are All Spaniards by Jay Honeck
We are all Spaniards today. As a percentage of Spanish population, the horrendous terrorist attack on Madrid has now actually injured and killed more people than the World Trade Center attacks did to America in 2001. Terrorism must be stopped, whatever the cost. Whether it was Basque separatists...

UAV's and TFR's along the Mexico boarder by John Doe
How much of the American boarder with Mexico is out of radar contact? There was some fuss about the FAA creating TFRs for the UAVs that are flying with boarder patrol along the Mexico. Why can't the UAV just fly along under an IFR flight plan and everyone else just avoid the little thing...

How high can you fly? by Mark
Ok, it's the year 2016. You are in a little Cessna 150. You're plane isn't pressurized because it will implode, so you're wearing a pressurized body suit. You have an oxygen mask. You plane is powered by a very powerful brushless electric motor supplied by a 20lb carbon nanotube source that is...

Jet fuel A-1 specific gravity by [email protected]
When I was involved in the design-build project of at least two A-1 pipelines here in the United Arab Emirates, I recall seeing the bid documents state the Specific Gravity of A-1 as being between 0.78 and 0.84. Can anyone point me to a link that endorses this range as an accepted international...

Thrown out of an FBO... by Jay Honeck
Decades ago, in my younger days (okay, waaaay younger), I was asked to leave a drinking establishment or two, and I've had a few women show me the door, over time...but I never thought I'd ever be asked to leave an FBO. To our amazement, it happened to Mary and me today. It all started pleasantly...

Flaps on take-off and landing by Mxsmanic
At what point does one normally set flaps before take-off? I've been doing it only when aligning with the runway, on the theory that extending flaps prior to that would just make me more vulnerable to wind while on the taxiway or at the gate. Similarly, I retract the flaps completely as soon as...

4 Attachment(s) Leaving the community by David Brooks
One thing - one of so very many things - I learned in my five years of flying is that partisan politics does not fit into the cockpit. Most of my flight instructors have, I know, been to the right of me politically. I had a most enjoyable flight with CJ - although he has since earned my...

NATCA Going Down in Flames by Jay Honeck
As of today, the FAA has imposed a dress code on their employees, requiring that they (*gasp!*) NOT where flip-flops and cut-offs to work! Amazingly, believe it or not, these employees are now actually going to be required to wear (*Oh-mi-God*) DRESS PANTS and a DRESS SHIRT to work! In the face...

Frequency of convictions for lying on FAA medical form by Sally Grozmano
Hi, I am familiar with the potential penalties for lying on the FAA medical, but was curious if anyone had any stats on *actual* convictions that have occured for this, and what the associated penalties were? It seems to be "common knowledge" that many pilots do lie, but I never hear of...

Should I be scared -- C172 over Gross by tman
Flown C172's for quite a while, and never had anybody in the back. Now I'm planning on quite a trip, with 2 pax and luggage. When I fill the fuel to the *tabs*, calc everyone's weight honestly and consider baggage -- I'm 75 lbs over the 2450 gross on departure. Maybe 100 over gross if I assume...

GPS Altitude with WAAS by Phil Verghese
I posted earlier about seeing differences of up to 500' between the altitude shown on my Garmin GPS 196 (even while receiving WAAS) and my altimeter. The GPS would consistently indicate higher than the altimeter. Dan Luke suggested the cause might be non-standard temperatures. After some more...
