    Yes, getting it back would almost be starting over completely. And that would be expensive, as you say, for something that is much less attractive than when I originally got it, and of much less use...

    I started flying in 1969, and let my CFI lapse in 1999, and sometimes I wish I hadn't, but other times I'm glad I'm not teaching in today's environment with all the suspicions, restrictions, etc....

    I had to hunt on their website to find that the V-12 diesel is about 550 horsepower, which with having only reached 218 kts at 17K sounds not that much better than a Baron (200 kts with a pair of...

    Nicely done! Wish we'd had this sort of aid when I learned to fly, but even home computers didn't exist then, not even video tape (for the consumer). And I love the tips you give folks for finding...

    I guess you'll have to wait for her sister to answer (Dear Abby), unless you get your machine back soon... :pilot: :pilot: :cool:

    For future reference, those are (depending on configuration) VASI or PAPI (or a couple of other types), and they behave as mentioned above. You don't mention which airport/runway but, as mentioned...

    If they actually are able to attain those numbers with production aircraft, that would indeed be something new.

    Though I've seen nothing identical to that in the past, there have been a number of aircraft with a somewhat similar look, such as the Questair Venture and some experimentals back further. And how...

    It's possible to place two people (not too big though) in the baggage area, though quite cramped. There ARE people stupid enough to do this (thankfully few). So assuming Rupert was correct about it...

    I'm just talking about the exclusion zones. It's been so long since I messed with it that I've forgotten the details, but I remember using exclusions to "remove" (actually hide) all manner of things....

    Actually, ADE has the ability to put exclusions in the scenery, which can be used (carefully) to exclude existing objects, in addition to all the things it can add. It doesn't actually REMOVE these...

    NOPE! ILS was invented to make landing POSSIBLE under low ceilings (down to 200 feet AGL).


    The aircraft does, but it's not your doing, other than a few button presses.

    Don't get me wrong,...

    That child's seat was, indeed, for a child (and cramped). The entire baggage area is limited to 120 lbs, including the seat (if installed). The very early C-150s were roomier and (IMO) more fun to...

    You get the pilot's operating handbook or flight manual for the aircraft, go to the section on weight and balance, and follow the instructions. A "sample" of how this works is:

    Avallillo chirped it -- "Welcome to the real world of light airplanes!" His explanations about limitations are excellent.

    The Cessna 182 is an extremely versatile light aircraft which, with a bit...

    That wasn't just weight and balance -- it was stupidity, and I don't think you can blame that on lack of training. Some people think they live a charmed life ("It can't happen to me"). They were...

    Actually, there is room behind the seats for a small amount of baggage (couple of suitcases, etc.) but, as mentioned above, not much weight allowance with full fuel. Of course it was intended as an...

    What's the weather? Did you try carburetor heat? Your described symptoms do sound like it might be carburetor ice.

    Like avallillo says, few C-172s have rudder trim -- generally just an adjustable tab on the trailing edge of the rudder. The only one's I've ever seen are on a C-172RG. In fact few light singles with...

    Which gauge is this? You never mention any specific gauge in your post above. Or are you talking about the runway info icon as being a gauge? AND, do you have the same problems with other airports or...

    AND make sure the power lever is at idle and flaps are fully extended. But, as Charlie says, too much speed is a likely cause, in fact is the usual cause for excessive floating. 145 kts is "low for a...

    Slowing down will likely give you a steeper descent than diving, though you have to be careful not to overdo it. Diving trades altitude for speed and will tend to make you land further down the...
