Question: Elevation --- RWY by john89
Hello everybody, I got a question regarding the so-called "elevation", i.e. the highest point of a runway. I have been told that the elevation is usually at the threshold, right before the touchdown zone, in order to ensure an easier take-off. However, as airplanes land in the same direction as...

Tiny Tim on the guard frequency 121.5? by Jim Logajan
Came across a reference in a book written 50 years ago to calling "Tiny Tim" on 121.5 for assistance from radar stations and direction finding stations for help in getting on-lost. Anyone ever heard of that before? When did this usage go away? Anyone willing to admit to being old enough to...

New twist "on pre-flight inspections." by Ricky
Reading the "On pre-flight inspections" thread got me thinking about a new twist on the subject. You did a pre-flight but experienced a problem in flight. The problem would not have (or probably wouldn't have) surfaced if you woulda, shoulda, coulda done a bit more thorough of a pre-flight. Me? I...

Jesse James' P-51 flight by Jon Woellhaf
In a recent episode of his new series "Jesse James is a Dead Man," Jesse pilots a P-51 around the pylon course at Reno. I was amazed at how well he did after only a few hours training. I'm quite certain I couldn't have done nearly as well. Assuming Jesse really was actually doing the flying, of...

On pre-flight inspections by D Ramapriya
Has any of you has ever discovered something during the pre-flight inspection that necessitated a significant deferrment of your flight plan or a cancelation altogether? Just curious, that's all. Thanks, Ramapriya

Wings vs. BFR by Dallas
I always thought taking a wings seminar was a simple way to get your BFR out of the way. After a little Internet research it seems they require three hours of dual flight instruction to qualify as a BFR. Is that correct? It would be much easier and cheaper to just do the BFR.. I don't see...

Well that was an experience! by es330td
I got to fly right seat in a 58 Baron yesterday. The most plane I had been in previous to that was a Bonanza. It is the completely wrong plane for my kind of flying but was an incredible ride.
