This thread is so tucked away I nearly missed it.

On the basis that others may have missed it too, perhaps you could post a link further up the chain. I'm sure the more opinionated will be pleased to suggest topics.

I'm thinking, so bear with me. It takes a long time.

Hi Will,

I think one subject that should be highlighted is that of Wake Turbulence, especially on these calmer summer evenings in the circuit, and not just from the prop. I recently experienced the turbulence a landing aircraft can create if you are positioned too close on short finals, especially in an aircraft like mine. Just a suggestion??

Hi Jonathan, yes that is a good one, also varying the circuit speed to give seperation to allow for lighter aircraft. I have also just written an article especially for single seat aircraft, which you may find of interest.

Cheers Will.

Going Foreign

Post by Dave Hall » Fri Aug 01, 2008 6:14 pm

Hi Will,
Maybe something on the documentation needed to give the new crop of pilots a check-list of what to do when planning a foreign flight would be helpful.

Could be handy having a resume of where the forms are and how to fill them in. I've found myself having to scratch around and understand the requirements, which has been easier with input from a local Strut member.

There's a booklet and list on the LAA site for Permit aircraft going to various places, but I can't find anything on the GAR forms and flight plans etc.

Hi Dave, that is something that could go in the LAA mag, maybe a pull out section. I will investigate and see what I can find, thanks for your input.

Regards Will LAA/PCS

Handy in a mag pull-out, but in the interests of anyone joining later, it could be posted on the web too.

Slightly off topic, but I've recently read a book by Carroll Smith about nut 'n' bolt technology. Lots of things I never knew about bolt selection, correct wire locking and how to select and size bolts correctly. Not exactly flying related but maybe a useful item to put into an engineering section?

Weight and balance might be a good subject. How to calculate from scratch, effects of extending limits and effect on take-off roll etc. Must account for a few AAIB reports!

Coaching: Checks

Post by gbolger » Thu Mar 03, 2011 4:20 pm

Just wondered would there be merit in having something on regular checks (i.e. common 50-hours that people can do themselves). I realise each a/c is different but there will be commonalities

regards

Hi,
I am a student pilot coming up time to do solo cross country.
Is it possible to use my own permit plane for these hours.
i am sole owner of a Rollason Condor.
I have my medical and insurance and a permit till december 2011.
Probably asked many times before I guess.
This would be very helpful.
thanks.
