    Logged my first multi time today

    I have 5.7 from over 15 years ago that I keep copying from page to page. Every time I wonder why I bother, yet every time I keep doing it. :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    A new panel with only GPS navigation for IFR flying

    He’s pretty much made up his mind that he doesn’t want to learn VOR/ILS Nav and instead become proficient with just his GPS. I’m not sure -what- GPS navigator he has. Gonna assume Garmin. Heaven help him though when he hops into a different airplane that has some Dynon or Avidyne or whatever...

    A new panel with only GPS navigation for IFR flying

    The school I was teaching at had a couple planes that had shielding issues of some sort I was told. How did I switch from gps to VOR? Uhhh, I simply did. Told approach what happened, said I was climbing on the last heading and asked to be vectored around for a VOR approach. Dialed the...

    A new panel with only GPS navigation for IFR flying

    I have had multiple occasions where the GPS lost its mind in the soup. So glad I had a VOR in the plane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yup. It happens. Big disclaimer: -I- didn’t do that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Commercial sim time requirements are confusing. Can somehow who got a commercial pilot cert with sim time help out?

    Right seat (safety pilot) can only log PIC: 1) While acting as said safety pilot and 2) Both pilot have agreed that said safety pilot will be ACTING as PIC at that time. So, be sure you can legally ACT as PIC when planning on doing this. Otherwise it’s just SIC time. Sent from my iPad using...

    Commercial sim time requirements are confusing. Can somehow who got a commercial pilot cert with sim time help out?

    Regarding the 10 hrs: I think you’ve seen most of the answers here have been, “NO”. Unless (as someone pointed out with an example) you’re going for your Comm BEFORE going for your IFR. I think there was one who said the 10 for Comm had to be -after- the IFR rating and was immediately...

    Turns around a point in a low wing

    I will say if you do your ground ref maneuvers at 1500 AGL then you’ll get to watch the DPE start filling out the notice of disapproval on the way back to the airport… The payoff for these maneuvers is in the traffic pattern. So, do them at traffic pattern altitudes. [emoji56] Sent from my...

    Turns around a point in a low wing

    Just like I would in a high wing. Eyeball it. You shouldn’t be fixated on the single point. Look at the surrounding area. If the goal is to fly a consistent radius around that point, look at all of the thingies on the ground that intersect that arc circle, you’re about to fly. That barn, then...
