    An opinion of what happened isn't necessarily a superiority complex. If you don't like discussion of the accident, feel free not to read it, but no need to label anyone that isn't making the dialogue what you think it should be.[/QUOTE]

    Lighten up!

    That was not a slight... It is a scientific theory of how and why we (sometimes incorrectly) perceive our competence... And maybe why we get in over out heads sometimes...

    Geeze!

    There is: Aeronautical Decision Making and it predates the ACS. But you can't implant a private pilot candidate with the wisdom and experience of a seasoned aviator. You impart as much experience and knowledge as you can, recognizing ultimate the ticket is a license to learn. Sometimes for some people the lessons are fatal.

    I'd like to hear more about this, say for instance, one where a structural failure has occurred. Human error because the aircraft was made from man made materials?

    So, "we" have no knowledge of her experience level and yet you have enough knowledge of the our experience levels to apply the DK effect to random people on a message board?

    You should stop judging and get off your high horse. You may not know what it is you don't even know.. ;)

    Your rhetorical wit will go mostly (if not totally) unappreciated here. I find it refreshing though. I was looking forward to pointing out the irony of his post.

    For sure. And good call on the thread drift. I really do love these types of conversations though-- way more than the bickering which seems to surround our chat!

    That can happen, but only on the ground on a landing rollout or takeoff run. At the point where the groundspeed is the same as the tailwind, the elevator will have zero effect.

    You absolutely do have to add power or lower the nose. If you make a tighter turn to compensate for the drift than you are absolutely falling prey to what kills many pilots in the pattern. Simply banking the wings more to compensate for wind dramatically increases the likelihood of a stall. Reference your POH for whatever plane you fly. Any bank increases stall speed and the more you bank the higher the stall speed goes. If you don't increase your speed somehow, either through pitching down or increasing power, common sense says you are loosing airspeed while increasing stall speed-- that's not a combo I want to find myself in.

    Again though, this viable discussion in aerodynamics seems to be interfering with the slanderous attacks on the dead pilot, semantical arguments and general other disagreements that surround it. My apologies.

    Huh? At the point where the ground speed is the same as the tailwind, the aircraft will fall to the ground because the airspeed is zero.

    I think you just proved Tarheelpilot's point with your first sentence. You agree that if you turn base sooner(planning for the wind drift) you would not necessarily HAVE to add power. If you planned your base turn so as not to require it. If you were planning ahead and timing it right you could execute this closer base and final with standard rate turns as well, no? I'm not sure what is being argued at this point. haha

    Not arguing just saying something we already should know. An increase in bank angle without a corresponding action of either lowering the nose or adding airspeed is a possibly risky combo. Sure if you plan to turn base closer to the runway to account for wind drift the maybe you could get away without adding some power but it still seems potentially risky to me.

    DK and Superiority Complex are not the same thing.

    DK, partially, is when people who are unskilled or skilled at one specific thing tend to believe they are skilled at everything. They overrate their abilities. It also applies to highly skilled people who tend to believe that all people are as skilled as they are. Two ends of the spectrum.

    Im glad you agree that it is not necessary to add power.

    I never said a steeper bank was required because it's not so I'm not sure how any of the bank angle / stall speed stuff applies here. Furthermore it's the g load that is increasing the stall speed not so much the bank just FYI.

    How would you modify your ground track without changing bank angle?

    Not sure why your saying the g load is increasing but the not the stall speed... Load factor and stall speed are related....

    EDIT - re-read, I see what you wrote now. Proper punctuation would have helped me understand it the first time around:)

    It can't fall to the ground because it's already on the ground. It's in the quote you quoted.
