FAA Knowledge Test Results by Richard Moore
I had taken the Flight Engineer Knowledge test a couple of years ago (8/2001 to be exact.) I just took the knowledge test again today (10/2003), due to the fact that some job applications wanted the test to be current within 24 months, and the previous test had expired. I noticed on the...

WxWorx flight test by Dan Luke
Today was a good day for it, as there were CBs in all directions around Mobile (so, what else is new?). Around the airport, though, it was scattered cu. with bright sun, a good test for the Sony notebook's viewability. The WxWorx receiver slipped neatly into the Cessna's right front map pocket...

New IFR Pilot! by [email protected]meDOTvt.edu
Hey all... just figured I'd share that I passed my IFR checkride a week or so ago. If anything, actually passing made me more leery of going out on own. Don't want hubris, but need to figure out what I can do. Just as a side note, I got to use it a bit last weekend coming back from Ohio. VFR at...

Transponder code switching by Ken Pruchnick
What is the proper way to switch transponder codes? The way I have been taught is to put the transponder in stand by, switch to the new code. Then turn it to mode C I had an instructor tell me to just change it to the new code without turning it to stand by first. Like to hear from controllers as...

Anyone IR without having actually flown in IMC? My checkride is around the corner and I've no actual IFR yet. I'm itching to experience it but the damned weather isn't co-operating (seemed the same way with the PPL!). Iain

Vision limiting with Lightspeed & glasses by PaulH
I took my checkride yesterday, and when I attached my Sporty's flip-down foggles to my glasses, the examiner nearly had heart failure - "you can't use those!!!!!!!" She said they allow too much peripheral vision to permit transition to in-cloud flight. We completed the checkride with a cardboard...

Requirement to fly departure procedures by [email protected]
I was always under the assumption that if my atc clearance received on the ground was direct to a fix, I was free to forgo the departure procedure and do an immediate turn after takeoff. I note that FAR 91.129, Operations in class D airspace states that: "(g) Departures. No person may operate an...

Night Currency by Doug Campbell
Practicing for my IFR, with a safety pilot (required crewmember) I am not current at night. Can we fly this way, and achieve currency? Not a passenger, since he is required crew. Not an issue for my partner, we both need to get current and trust each other's ability. Is it legal? TIA, Doug

Detroit: choice of IFR airports? by Mike & Janet Larke
From what I've read Detroit area airports get pretty mixed reviews, some pretty negative for g/a and general level of service & facilities. Can anyone recommend the Detroit area airports to fly in to, and warn of the ones to avoid? (With instrument approaches/ILS preferred.)---for single-engine...

"Direct when able" by Mitchell Gossman
When instructed to fly a heading then "Direct XYZ when able", does a controller expect a call when you are in fact able and will be turning on course? Usually it is a trivial turn since the heading they give is a good guess for direct course. I've had conflicting experience. One time after being...
