Feb. 24 - The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association on Tuesday provided initial support to four Massachusetts pilots - all AOPA members - facing a lawsuit filed by a few residents. The suit alleges that the noise signature from the aerobatics performed by the pilots caused significant harm; they...

Human factors RECKLESSNESS by private
My apologies to the Usenet police cross posting but I am in mourning for friends lost, and in sympathy for the families they left alone. This week we have seen behavior that can only be described as reckless.

spins from coordinated flight by Todd W. Deckard
Can you depart and spin from coordinated flight? Specifically a coordinated climbing turn? Several weeks ago I chimed in on an otherwise awful thread suggesting that if the ball was in the center the airplane would not spin. One of the posters ) responded that the...

Rolling a Non Aerobat 150 by Tom Inglima
Spins have NEVER been in the private pilot PTS. The PTS (Practical Test Standard) only has been in existence for around 20 years or so. The last time spins were required for a Private Certificate was back in the early 1950's or maybe the late 1940's. Note that there is nothing that prevents...

Of parachutes and things by ShawnD2112
Was hoping to get a bit of expertise here. I'm in the market for an emergency bailout chute for flying in my Pitts S-1D. The top US contenders seem to be National and Softie but with no experience in the field, and parachutes not exactly being the kind of object you can try on for size in the...

AOPA Stall/Spin Study -- Stowell's Review (8,000 words) by Rich Stowell
All right! Can't a guy get away from civilization for a while, safely out of e-mail range, without the world falling apart? Ok, ok, maybe only that sliver of the world that cares about stalls and spins in light airplanes. I come home after nearly three weeks traversing the Pacific Northwest giving...

What airplane would fill this mission? by John B
Hello all, I'm looking for an airplane to purchase or build, but I can't find one that meets all of my needs/wants (yes, I know, all airplanes are a bucket of compromises). So, I'm asking all of you out there for advice on any airplanes that would fit this profile. Important to Haves: - could be...

Path of an airplane in a 1G roll by Chris W
Do we have any who is a math whiz here? I want to find a formula to calculate the position of an airplane throughout a 1G roll. The reason I'm doing this is so I can build a "roll track" for a remote control car so the car will alway have a positive g force on it to keep it on the track. Anyone...

Optimal Frequency of Lessons by David B. Cole
Just coming off my latest aero flight just over a week ago with Mr. Stowell, I've decided that I want to take advantage of the momentum and start a more formal course fairly soon. I think I have an instructor nailed down. My plan is to start with a 5-10 hours course, spread out over several months....

Thanks for the Spins Rich by David B. Cole
Today I had an opportunity to fly with Rich Stowell as part of his annual Emergency Maneuver Training Clinic in NJ. Yesterday we experienced low viz and fairly low ceilings the entire day with even worse forecast for today, so it didn't look good for us. But today turned out to be an almost...

Snap roll vs. Va by Greg Esres
For those of you who have aerobatic airplanes, I'd be interested in data about the recommended entry speed for a snap roll vs. what Va is in your airplane. Thanks for any info.

Emergency Parachute questions by Jay Moreland
I need advice on a pilot emergency chute. I am only a pilot and know nothing about parachutes. I need an emergency parachute because I will be doing aerobatics in a Pitts-like biplane: required by FAA. My weight is #140. The altitude I will be landing if I am unlucky enough to need to use the chute...

turbo video by Peter Holm
Hi, I donīt know much about aerobatics, but I would love to see a video of an aerobatic airplane with turboprop engine doing the vertical climb and the torque roll. A search with the Google machine for "turboprop, video" on this forum didnīt give me any results. Does anyone here know about such a...

Yee-ha! by Bushy
Did it today! After 12 years of watching the sky and dreaming, I finally had my first fly since buying the farm. (Wonder if anyone can guess why I stopped flying?) 2 hours 20 minutes of shear joy in two lessons, flew over my farm for the first time and flew a taildragger to boot! I know some of...

Outside loops in a Decathlon by [email protected]
I am relatively new to aerobatics, and I have been flying only positive manuevers so far. I am flying a 1978 Decathlon with wooden wings. Can some one give me some tips on flying an outside loop? Things to be mindful of, and so on? I have the entry speeds from the POH.

First Two Aero Lessons This Weekend (Long) by David B. Cole
Well I just returned from my second acro lesson in as many days and all I can say is that I'm wiped out. Having an opportunity to fly with Rich Stowell on two occasions and performing a number of spins and other maneuvers certainly helped with endurance. The airport that I flew from is Van Sant...

Snaps in the Decathlon by Dave Russell
My latest endeavor has been to learn to snap-roll the Super D. A couple of training flights in an Extra 300 proved that I could learn to fly them, but transferring that experience to the Decathlon has been humbling. (As an aside, I *strongly* suggest you do not go fly an Extra 300 when you own a...

Looping during a commercial flight by LordAvalon
Does anybody knows of a link where I could find exemples of certified pilots suspended (or convicted or fined) for hazarduous manoeuvers during a commercial flight. I have heard that it is possible to make a lateral looping with a heavy carrier without the passengers being aware of it (during...
