Airoshane, Firstly i don't think the "puddle" you saw around the main gear was was hydraulic fluid if you could have easily confused it with rain, hydraulic fluid mainly used in aviation is either red, purple or green. Where you were sitting on the aircraft give or take a few foot would ha...

From the news pictures it looks to be Jim's Citation 6 involved. No mention of crew yet, i know few of the guys that crew those citations and im sure they wouldn't want their names braodcasted across Ireland in relation to 50kg of heroin, don't think they would ever be involved with something like t...

Angels-high an F14 and F4 now thats an experience!

"Punch in a few numbers and wait for the autopilot" If that were the case why not get idiots to do the job, sounds like something they could manage without any training, punch a few numbers sounds very easy, that is untill you lose an engine and cabin pressure at the same time and your at ...

I myself think that instructional hours are great for anyone wishing to go further in aviation.When instructing you have to be aware that the student next to you is inexperienced and will do everything that shouldn't be done in an aircraft eg fly you into cloud while your trying to fix your position...

Nanolight i can see how you think that there is a lot to do already without having to think about trim also.However as you go on in flying you can instinctively sence a pitching force and you will trim it out without any thought at all, at least that is the way it is for me.

I have to say that i dont think it is right that everyone is putting NFC down. Yes i have been crossed off the books in favour of a CPL trainee. Its annoying but if i was a CPL trainee i would like a bit of special treatment since i would already have spent about 10 grand with them. As for the cond...
