[QUOTE=InsyleM;1237352]Wich is more important, the letter or spirit of aviation law?
We learned in School,
that an aircraft's annual inspection is due, on the last day of the month, at midnight.
How strictly enforced is that?
I see two ways this could be applied, both of wich seem correct.
If your annual is due in July, and you get up in the morning on July 31st at 8am, is your annual already 8 hours over due? Or do you have 16 hours left to fly it to get it done?
In proper English the word he, for centuries, meant (mankind) and was used to refer to both genders not only in the (boy not girl) definition. It's only been in recent history when the society decided that it wasn't politically correct. If you read literature written for the past 6000 years and up until about 30 years ago, don't be surprised if you see he being used for both genders. I'm not surprised you weren't taught that in our modern day schools, however.
I also noticed that through a wording overlook,
the FAR 43, refering to the requirment for washing an aircraft prior to inspection, uses the word "He" This by letter of the law says that only a male can wash and depanel an airplane in preperation for inspection.
I figured this could make for some interesting discussions...
Supose your at 9000'? Flying at 250Kias... with a 20 knot tailwind?
or 270kias with a 30 knot headwind?
Even with the same wind 250kias @ 9000' is diffrent groundspeed then 250kias @ 1000'
So how do they know if you were speeding or not? The transponder only reports altitude..
An acquisition Radar can measure azimuth and distance changes from one sweep to the next. Once the computer is feed the altitude information, which is the unknown, it can do the math, and quite accurately as well.
