Im in a bit of a hurry because I am currently writing an essay due in for today. However, I couldn't resist the lure of A.net so here are my queries.
1) When I flew briefly on the Grob 115 'Tutor' with the RAF, I didn't realise just how much visibility I was afforded through its canopy. Not only could I look out the front, sides and back, but I had a completely unobstructed view vertically through the one piece canopy. My first query is how do all you GA pilots manage to spot other A/C with such an obstructed view of above in A/C such as the piper/cessna?
2) I was told that during your standard PPL, GA pilots aren't actually allowed to try stalls/spins and their associated recovery techniques - instead they are just briefly shown/demonstrated, etc. Is this correct or am I simply being exceedingly naieve?
answers appreciated in advance,
