PostForum: Torque, Chat, and Chill!   Posted: Thu Sep 13, 2007 3:39 am   Subject: New Zealand to USA or Canada
I would suggest picking an area of Canada or the US first, and then search for schools in that area. Silverstate is all over the country and certainly a big name in the US industry, but smaller schoo ...

PostForum: Flight Dynamics   Posted: Sat Aug 25, 2007 12:11 am   Subject: Turn Cooridnator
I have a rather inane question that has popped up at my flight school in the past few days related to the operation of a turn coordinator.

We all know that gyroscopes operate on the principles of r ...

What are the requirements like across the pond?

WG, they are not too different over here, they just break down the hours into a few more 'compartments'. We require 150 total time, 100 PIC (which I ...

With a surface wind of about 10 kts, I tried a couple of downwind quickstops.

Why the urge to do a downwind quickstop? The name alone just screams "settling with power" to me (or "vortex ring sta ...

Good luck on the CPL! I primarily teach CPL students (US) and it can be a very fun rating!

What are the hour requirements like in the UK? I'm only familiar with the US regs.

NB, is he mounting the 530 on top of the console? It would be a bit of a push in the centre area

The 530 will be in the pilot side mount (it is a Raven II) with the 430 in the center console. T ...

At the school I work at we only use ladders. The right-front cowl door (the long narrow one) does provide a foothold if no ladder (bladder?) is available, but you are still stepping on the seat and h ...

Don't think it would be as hard as you think (At least not in US$). I am training a gentleman who is buying a R44 in November and from what I know about his order he is going to be real close to $40k ...

I fly in Chandler (where Rotorway is located) and I gotta say that the greatest downside is probably the noise issue; they are LOUD! I also understand that they auto like a brick; and this is coming ...

Wow, that is a cool little helicopter. Looks a lot like a 300c but seems to perform as well or better than the 22BII.

Do you have an idea of how the cost will compare, taking into consideration ...

I also cast my vote for the R44.
I did my CPL in the R44 and I think it was well worth the price difference vs. the R22. Now that I am instructing commercial students I can really see the advantages ...
