  1. Was my reply even the slightest correct? I have the PPL, and I thought I would try to show some knowledge. I was sure what I typed was relatively correct. Dan
  2. Hi mate. As I say - its easy when you know the answer. Soon, you will too Roll rate is the "rate" the aircraft turns. How many degrees in heading it changes, per minute. If you picture a turn coordinator for a second, or click this link to look at ... http://www.aircraftinstrument.com/turn.html ... you will see that there are 2 marks in the bottom corners. These mean something. That something is the "rate" of turn. When the miniature aircraft wings are on a line (depending on whether the plane is banked left or right), it means it will do 360 degrees in 2 minutes. That
  3. I am English, with myy Canadian Licenses. I will eventually imigrate to Canada as a pilot and maybe a second job. I have family so I can come in. I am not only moving to Canada within 3 years for flying. I love the country. I cannot say one thing about. Dont take your wonderful country for granted. I know you may complain about it, but it you even start comparing it to England, then after about 5 minutes you will be glad to be Canadian I tell you. I have done lots of reading about the two countries, and I live in one of them! I am allowed to use my PPL from Canada in the UK.
  4. Can we do polls here? It would be interesting to see what the majority of people feel... An instructor with lots of experience A fresh instructor with all the knowledge Well, to me, both sound professional enough. I suppose I can speak from experience. My PPL was taught by two main instructors at the good old victoria flying club in YYJ BC. One of the instructors was English just like me, and I was his FIRST student, EVER! I felt very comfortable with him. He knew everything, and I did not have any quarms against him. Then, when I flew with my other instructor who h
  5. Yes thanks for that I was just making a point that I have clocked many hours, in "very high thousands". Its a shame I think, that I did not start the flight sim log book when I first sat at Flight Sim 95 all that time ago... You get the point tho Smooth skies, Dan
  6. I would be able to assist running a "Flight Simulation" forum. Probably clocked over 20,000 hours on flight sims since being about 14...Now 18. I am availbile much of the time and since im 8 hours ahead the west of Canada and 5 hours ahead of the east (most of it) I will be able to check it out when you are all asleep. Well, just a thought...Im very much availbile and would be privelaged to assist the boss.. Smooth skies, Dan.
  7. Well, Here we go with this forum! What are the requirements for the aerobatics rating? What are the privelages and how do you get one? Yuo can take passengers up right? With this licence, can you fly in airshows or must you have a CPL also ? Smooth skies, Dan
  8. Not a high time guy, but I think that such a decision should be made at the interview. Some people "use" flight instruction careers as a way of building time and getting paid, and then leaving without a true passion for teaching people and sharing ones love for flying. If they show they really wish to do such a job, perhaps they should do "dirty work" first, and making themselves known around the airfield, and then after 6 months if they have not left due to boredem, the Flight Training Center will know who really wants to be an Instructor and who is in it for money and time. Any g
  9. Hi. Ill be going to YYJ (Victoria BC) this Sunday, 16th March. Am interested to know if there is much to do at Miniapplois (Excuse the spelling folks). I have to stop over from the Gatwick flight to change, and I dont really want to be staring at the timetable for a few hours. I went to miniappolis airports on Flight Sim, but they were grass strips and when I''ll be in a 747-400, its not really my type of runway surface Smooth skies, Dan.
