RE: Iran And Russia. Getting Too Cosy

Threat from the Russian's? Damn straight, you yanks better stop cutting from defense, hopefully Dubya knows that. Quite frankly once the Russian's exploit Siberia for all it is worth you will have another superpower in the world, one that knows how to make some damn fine weapons of war. Just rememb...

RE: Anybody Flown A Katana?

Yup, there is a sticker mounted inside the a/c on the fuselage by the seats, when it changes to a red color it is to hot to fly. Wings will probably drip or something crazy! Funniest thing I ever saw was a student taxiing out to the holding bay with the blocks still tied to the wings! He was gunnin...

RE: Anybody Flown A Katana?

I agree with the nosewheel stuff. Give me a steerable nosewheel every time. When I did my check in the Katana the hardest thing was trying to taxi the bloody thing! And the DV-20's use the Rotax which doesn't start well on cold days, if at all. Our sister school at Springbank has the A1 model and i...

So true. Did you know the Katana cannot fly in 40 degrees celsius or higher, as well as -25 or lower. hehe! All the jokes about Katana's! Too many to remember.

Anybody Flown A Katana?

Just wondering if anybody here has flown one of the Katana's. My flight school has them and I myself am checked out in the DV-20 version. If you have flown them what do you think of them? Peace!

I guess that is why we fly, for the challenge of understanding ATC. Can you imagine the three of us up there in separate planes doing three different things to one sentence! Outstanding! hehe

The term "Heavy" is also used in Canadian ATC. I'm not sure about anywhere else.

RE: Can You Do 270

I'm guessing that ATC was referring to speed. Usually at Calgary ATC will tell aircraft being vectored in to land "cross "x" beacon at 160 or less". Hope that helps.

RE: "Turn Right 095"... Etc. What It Means?

Hey Redngold, when ATC says "Turn right 095" or anything else, it means to turn to that compass heading. A few times I have had ATC say "turn right 20 degrees" but that is a very rare occurence. And they make sure that they are conveying degrees from your present heading and not heading 200 on the ...

RE: Definition Of "heavy"

Although the 757 isn't defined as a heavy, with regards to wake turbulence separation it is classified as a heavy, due to the nature of turbulence with its wings.

RE: A340 Thrust Reversers

I know this is a late response, but in the AC picture the #1 Thrust reversers are just barely visible, maybe because of the angel of the shot the #3 and 4 reversers are more prominent, and the hazy weather also plays with the ability to see clearly. But take a look and the #1 Engine, you can make o...

As for any tips FlyerC, keep that ball centered in your turn coordinator, especially on steep turns, with that ball centered keeping your altitude is all you hav...

Two words of advice:

RE: Private Pilot

I got my private license about 4 months ago and the cost was $7500 Cdn. Also take in mind that the cost will vary with how long it takes you to complete it. I'm not sure what the minimum is in the US, but in Canada it is 45 hours total.
