    So flying up into the gradient you get a slight boost in airspeed then turn down wind and dive into a lessor tail wind, win-win. Doesn't explain the "dreaded" part that ag pilots fear. It is a lack...

    Just because someone has been at it a long time doesn't mean they are competent. The only pilots I have ever met that believe the down wind turn myth are the ones that rely on the ground for their...

    Again you completely miss the point. You primarily fly planes that are tediously set up for a single purpose, to fly IMAC routines. Ok, maybe some trainers or sport planes occasionally, but I would...

    No he believes it rises from the barrel, not that it is pointed up. This is basically the same picture he uses to show how it works. If you notice the rifle is being held level yet the bullet...

    I have a question, if your plane is trimmed for straight and level and you hold rudder, even a little, won't it just continue to yaw? In my world when you apply a control force it will continue...

    To add to it, I wish I had a dollar for every time I saw a plane spin in due to "interference" while they held full throttle, full opposite aileron and full up elevator, but it "just wouldn't...

    Here is the answer. You do not need to accelerate to account for the wind no matter what direction you turn to or from. The airplane is always travelling 20 mph in the direction of the wind. Your...

    RE: Proper Trimming Power Setting

    As with your set up it takes practice and a specific technique, but you don't fly that way so you should teach how you fly. Again neither way is wrong, just different.
