    How many of these women have you known personally, as opposed to reading about them or hearing about them? In the first place, it would be a rare individual indeed (man OR woman) who could put up...

    Good. I'd note that, as you move up in aircraft performance and complexity there are some things that are different from using the C-172. Power management will be different, as will altitude choices...

    It doesn't seem to exist any more -- after all, that was 75 years ago. On Google Earth the Agra airport is a good five miles from the Taj Mahal, and no runway points that way anyhow, so it must have...

    But has the disadvantage that when you have more than one aircraft using the same gauge, you also have multiple copies of the gauge. So care is needed.

    The GPS gives you the same info, but the autopilot takes its input from whichever source is selected by the GPS/NAV switch. If you're flying manually it's not as important, except in certain...

    Not only have you resurrected what should be a dead horse, an almost 10 year old post, but the differences between the two sims is much greater now than it was in 2012. So your arguments are pretty...

    That's good -- I bought their package for my wife back in the days when it was on VHS tape -- it was great then, and probably better now.

    How much are you reducing power to start the descent? You can come all the way back to flight idle. Also, you could deploy spoilers as they sometimes do on real aircraft.

    The initial (Phase 1) phase out of VORs, from 2016 to 2020, eliminates 74 VORs across the U.S., out of 1,000 or so that existed in 2016. Phase 2, from 2021-2025, will phase out an additional 234...
