RE: University of Alaska at Anchorage

I went to UAA for a year after high school. I did the private pilot ground school at their facility on Merrill Field, the instructor was good and they had nice facilities and sims. I don't think...

RE: Tumbles

Yeah that's the waivered aerobatic box at Borrego Springs (L08) it's nice to have an emergency landing site that close when doing low level aerobatics.

RE: Rutan Voyager 90 degree roll

Now Aerohead, just because I jumped to your defense doesn't mean that I don't see the same misconceptions that the others did. You really should get some spin training. Mostly so that you won't be...

RE: Rutan Voyager 90 degree roll

Give the guy a break... the blame for his misunderstandings rests fully with his instructor. This is a good example of why spin training should never have been replaced with "spin avoidance".

RE: I'm finally going to be able to take lessons!

Michael,

Your best bet is to find a glider port near by. You can get a glider license at 16, and there's a good chance that you could work the line in exchange for lessons. Gliders are a lot...

RE: Sport Pilot

This is Ty from Sunrise... It all started with models and flight sims, so I continue to visit this site and chime in now and again. I know a lot of Bretts, but from your website I'm guessing you are...

RE: Sport Pilot

I disagree on this one, Micah and I learned to fly in Alaska, both of us became student pilots quickly and flew solo without being in a big hurry to get the private out of the way since we were kids...

Sport Pilot

The FAA has finally done something to make learning to fly "less" expensive. There is a new type of license called "sport pilot". This license can be attained in half the time it takes to get a...

RE: Mach 10 !!

It's easy to point out the mistakes of the past, but it's not really fair... if we did this in our own lives we'd hate ourselves... if I had only gone to college, if I'd married that girl when I had...

RE: How does this happen"

Gary,

You lumped all pilots that do aerobatics into one category "aerobatic pilots" and then said they don't live too long. That is not accurate!! In full size competition aerobatics in the...

RE: Longitudinal stability analysis

The neutral point is also the aerodynamic center. So you can calculate the location of the aerodynamic center, and the center of gravity without the tail first. Then size and place the tail to...

RE: Will this work?

It doesn't look like it will be directionally stable with that long nose. The canard surface area is very small compared to the main wings, this will put the CG somewhere around the leading edge of...

Propeller aerodynamics are extremely complicated, but there are some overall aspects that you can accept as fact without actually becoming an expert in props. First off the velocity of the blade is...

New Monoplanes

There's a new full sized aerobatic plane called the Chanute. It has several aerodynamic "tricks" to improve high aoa handling characteristics... The leading edge of the wing sheds a vortex where...

RE: Spinner/prop/cowl aero interaction

Big spinners are Good when considering the aerodynamics of the prop, and the aerodynamics of the cowl/fuselage, but they make cooling difficult. If you look at modern full size planes with large...

RE: 1-1/4 spin?

On the 1-1/4 turn spin you will also need to hold some rudder on the downline to keep it from dragging a wing, if you spin right you will recover and then put some right rudder back in to get the...

RE: I want to fly full scale!

Good start, now go talk to several instructors to get a feel for which one is right for you, that is the most important part.
