334 Making Flight Training Safer – Tips for CFIs with John Fiscus + GA News

Max talks with John Fiscus discuss about strategies for flight instructors when teaching in the traffic pattern. John highlights a common issue among new CFIs: teaching based on qualitative feelings rather than quantitative data. He emphasizes the importance of providing concrete numerical guidance to students. John introduces the concept that "energy equals time," stressing that the amount of energy (airspeed, power, altitude) affects reaction time, especially as the aircraft gets closer to the ground. He also talks about the need for CFIs to balance allowing student mistakes with ensuring safety. John describes the different roles of an instructor: teacher, coach, and evaluator, and the importance of setting specific error tolerances at various traffic pattern stages. They also discuss practical techniques for being ready to take over controls without alarming students. John also talks about the ever tightening tolerances he permits around the traffic pattern, before he steps in to intervene. Both Max and John emphasize continuous learning for CFIs, adapting teaching methods based on new insights, and fostering student independence while maintaining safety.

333 FAA Compliance Program – What You Need to Know with Mark Kolber + GA News

Max talks with Mark Kolber, an aviation lawyer and CFI, about the FAA's compliance program. Mark explains that the program, launched in 2015, shifted from a punitive approach to a more rehabilitative one, encouraging pilots to report mistakes and undergo retraining rather than facing severe penalties. He highlights the benefits of being proactive and transparent with the FAA to resolve issues through remedial training. Mark discusses the importance of filing a NASA form for protections if a case goes to formal enforcement and advises seeking professional guidance when contacted by the FAA. He clarifies that while the compliance program handles minor infractions, serious violations like fraud or repeated offenses still lead to formal enforcement actions. The conversation includes practical advice for pilots who receive a Brasher warning, suggesting they contact the tower with brief, factual information without making admissions. Mark emphasizes that modern technology like ADS-B makes evading detection impossible, advocating for cooperation and transparency as the best approaches.

332 FAA Reauthorization Effects on Training and DPEs with Jason Blair and Friday Mailbag Special

Max interviews Jason Blair about the FAA reauthorization bill and its implications for flight training and pilot certification. And Max reads listener stories and emails. Jason highlights a significant change allowing non-collegiate programs to qualify for restricted ATP certificates through enhanced qualification programs developed by airlines or FAA-approved training centers. This opens new pathways for aspiring pilots outside traditional collegiate programs. He also discusses the bill's focus on workforce development, including a GAO study on the pilot shortage and provisions to streamline the process for pilots training in experimental or limited category aircraft. Notably, the bill includes measures to improve the deployment and standardization of Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs), such as creating a national oversight office and developing tools to better manage examiner availability and scheduling. Additionally, Jason mentions the upcoming removal of expiration dates from flight instructor certificates, aiming to reduce administrative burdens while still requiring instructors to maintain currency.

331 New ACS Changes and How They’ll Affect Your Next Checkride – Jason Blair + GA News

Max and Jason Blair discuss recent changes in the FAA's aviation testing standards, notably the transition from PTS to ACS. Key updates include the conversion of the CFI test to ACS, introducing scenario-driven evaluations. New maneuvers, such as demonstrating flight characteristics under various conditions, have been added for CFIs. Instructors can now use pre-developed lesson plans, easing the preparation burden. Instrument rating changes allow using approaches with decision altitudes like LNAV/VNAV and mandate partial panel approaches to reflect real emergency scenarios. GPS databases must remain current. For commercial pilots, precision in power-off 180-degree landings is emphasized, and understanding ballistic parachute systems is required. These updates aim to modernize testing, aligning it with current industry practices and technology without drastically altering training content. The use of electronic flight bags (EFB) for planning and in-flight operations is now permitted, enhancing practicality. Jason assures that these changes will improve the evaluation process while maintaining consistency with previous standards, providing a seamless transition for candidates.

328 Buying a Plane and Crashing on Way Home - N8924Y Piper Twin Comanche

Max explores a tragic aviation accident involving the crash of a N8924Y, a Piper Twin Comanche shortly after its new owner purchased it. The pilot was flying the aircraft home when he encountered various challenges, including fatigue, pressure to return home quickly, and low experience in the specific aircraft model. The episode delves into the circumstances surrounding the crash, highlighting common factors seen in similar accidents. The pilot attempted to troubleshoot the landing gear problem while hand-flying the aircraft in dark night conditions. Ultimately, the crash was attributed to the pilot exceeding the aircraft's critical angle of attack while troubleshooting the landing gear indication, resulting in an aerodynamic stall at low altitude. The episode serves as a sobering reminder of the importance of safety, decision-making, and preparedness in aviation. It honors the memory of Rob Prestininzi and underscores the need for pilots to prioritize safety over external pressures.

327 N84R Beech A36 Crash in KY – Pilot Breaks multiple FAA Rules + GA News

Max discusses a tragic accident involved a 55-year-old physician who crashed his Beech A36 aircraft, N84R, at Tucker Guthrie Memorial Airport in Harlan, Kentucky, on November 3, 2022. The pilot departed from Knoxville at around 9:32 a.m. with the purpose of attending scheduled appointments at a medical office near the destination airport. Despite low instrument flight conditions at the time of arrival, the pilot did not file a flight plan, communicate with ATC, or receive a weather briefing before departure. Upon arrival in the airport area, he announced over the CTAF his intention to circle for landing. However, subsequent flight track data revealed that the airplane completed a total of three approaches to the runway, none of which were consistent with the published instrument approach procedure, and all were conducted in low instrument flight conditions.

326 How to Get a Job Towing Gliders – Interview Jason Stephens + GA News

Max talks with Arizona Soaring President and Chief Flight Instructor Jason Stephens and eight time Nation glider aerobatic champion about what it takes to become a glider towplane pilot. Surprisingly, you can tow gliders with just a Private certificate, though most operators will probably want their prospective tow pilots to have a commercial rating. Most new tow pilots will  probably be required to have at least a couple hundred hours of total experience. And since most tow planes are taildraggers, they’ll also need a taildragger endorsement.

324 13 Ways to build flight time with Rob Mark - Part 2 + GA News

Max talks with Rob Mark about thirteen different ways a pilot can build flight time. These jobs may be attractive to weekend pilots who are looking for a fun flying activity, or for pilots who are looking to reach the 1500 hours required for an ATP and an airline job. This is Part 2 of a two episode series. In Part 2, we discuss Part 91 and Corporate flying, Air tours, Banner towing, time building programs, glider towing, working as a CFI, and flying a personal airplane. We also discuss the illegal P-51time, which has nothing to do with warbirds. And I want to mention one other resource for pilots who are looking for low time pilot jobs.  I mentioned the Road to 1500 website where you can learn about a lot of these jobs. And just a couple of weeks ago, Ivan Rabarison, who runs that website, began offering what he calls the Ultimate Low Time Pilot Jobs Database, which sells for  $29.99.

321 Sleep Inertia and False Glide Slope – Air India Flight 812 Crash + GA News

Max talks about two critical factors, sleep inertia and false glide slopes, which played significant roles in an Air India Express accident. Despite being unrelated phenomena, they converged to contribute to the crash of Flight 812 in 2010. Air India Express, a low-cost airline operating in India, experienced its first fatal crash during this flight. The aircraft, a Boeing 737, was returning from Dubai to Mangalore, India. However, the cockpit voice recorder revealed that the captain had been asleep for a significant portion of the flight, awakening only shortly before the crash. Compounded by issues such as inadequate descent planning and reliance on visual cues due to radar unavailability, the crew found themselves on an unstabilized approach, ignoring multiple warnings and calls for a go-around from the first officer. The aircraft ultimately overshot the runway. If you're getting value from this show, please support the show via PayPal, Venmo, the Cash app, Zelle or Patreon.

317 Naples Challenger Jet Update & 1994 Challenger Dual Flameout + GA News

In this episode, Max discusses two Challenger jet crashes involving dual engine failures: one in Naples, FL, in February 2024 and another in Nebraska in 1994. The incidents share some similarities. In the Naples crash, both engines experienced oil pressure warnings within seconds of each other before failing simultaneously. The preliminary report indicates the left landing gear touched down first, followed by the right, before the plane skidded into a concrete barrier. The cabin attendant facilitated passengers' safe evacuation through the tail compartment. The pilots, highly experienced, had a combined flight time of over 35,000 hours. The aircraft, with GE CF34 Series turbofan engines, underwent recent airworthiness inspections and was fuel-soaked post-crash, ruling out fuel exhaustion. Further examination revealed thermal damage to engine components but no clear cause for the simultaneous engine failures. Discussion with an Challenger jet pilot who listens to the show recalled a similar incident involving a Challenger aircraft that also had a dual engine flameout in 1994. That crash occurred during a positioning flight after passenger drop-off, after experiencing a dual engine flameout between FL370 and FL410. The aircraft sustained substantial damage during a forced landing at night in an alfalfa field. Analysis revealed water contamination in the fuel, leading to the engines' failure. Both engines were sent for examination, showing consistent findings with fuel samples. The NTSB attributed the crash to inadequate planning, decision-making, and preflight inspections following fuel contamination. Comparing the two crashes, both had simultaneous dual engine failures occurring around two hours into flight, and both had a yellow liquid in the fuel. At this point, the cause of the Naples crash is still unknown, though Cockpit Voice Recorder and Flight Data Recorder analysis should provide new clues. The episode underscores the importance of fuel contamination awareness, and the necessity for thorough preflight inspections and proper response to warning signs.

315 Mastering Arrival Procedures: Common Issues and Best Practices for Instrument Pilots + GA News

Host Max Trescott delves into arrival procedures for instrument pilots, focusing on common issues and best practices. The host begins by emphasizing the importance of understanding and properly executing arrival procedures, which are often overlooked, especially for pilots not regularly flying into larger airports. Arrival procedures, also known as Standard Terminal Arrival Routes (STARs), facilitate the transition from enroute structure to the terminal area, streamlining air traffic flow and reducing congestion. These procedures guide pilots to specific fixes or navigational aids, ensuring a seamless lateral and vertical transition. While some STARs are requested via flight plans, controllers may assign them as needed. The episode provides a detailed analysis of the Fernando 7 arrival at Van Nuys Airport, highlighting its unique characteristics and naming conventions. It explains how STARs typically consist of multiple parts, including branches, common waypoints, and splits leading to different runways. Understanding these components is crucial for pilots to navigate the arrival effectively. Max also offers practical tips for pilots, such as properly loading arrival procedures into flight management systems (FMS), checking for discontinuities in flight plans, and adhering to published speed and altitude restrictions. It addresses common challenges, such as handling last-minute runway changes, interpreting ATC clearances, and ensuring accurate navigation between transitions and approaches. He also emphasizes the importance of thorough pre-flight preparation, including studying STAR charts and anticipating potential deviations from assigned procedures. Pilots are reminded to communicate effectively with ATC regarding their capabilities and intentions, especially when unable to meet published restrictions. Overall, the episode provides valuable insights and guidance for instrument pilots, helping them navigate arrival procedures with confidence and precision while minimizing errors and deviations.

314 Falcon Jet, N283SA Black Hole Crash in Georgia – with Rob Mark + GA News

Host Max Trescott discusses the fatal crash of a Falcon jet in Georgia with aviation expert Rob Mark. The NTSB final report revealed a series of factors contributing to the accident. These included misreading a NOTAM regarding the ILS glideslope, difficulty entering the initial approach fix into the navigation system, high and fast arrival at the final approach fix, unauthorized use of airbrakes. It’s also possible that they didn’t realize the ILS approach required flying a procedure turn. They were also flying a black hole approach in dark night conditions with minimal ground lights, but apparently weren’t referencing the PAPI visual indicator. The captain, aged 73, had extensive flight experience but had undergone retraining due to unsatisfactory performance in certain areas. The first officer, aged 63, had a significant number of flight hours, but received only a Second in Command (SIC) type rating, because of performance issues. The podcast delves into the transcript of communications between the flight crew and Atlanta Center, highlighting confusion regarding NOTAMs and the approach procedure. The crew, flying a cargo route from El Paso to Thomson, Georgia, requested information on the ILS approach, but there was a misunderstanding regarding the status of the glideslope and localizer. The approach required a procedure turn, which the crew seemingly missed, leading to an unstable approach. There were delays in programming the initial approach fix (IAF) into the navigation system, possibly due to confusion over the fix's identification. The crew ultimately crossed the IAF at an altitude significantly higher than prescribed, leading to a steep descent to intercept the glideslope. Max created a software simulation of the final minutes of the flight that revealed a rapid descent rate and an unstable approach. Despite warnings from the captain about being high, attempts to correct the descent were ineffective, ultimately resulting in impact with trees just short of the runway. This was a classic black hole approach, in which there are few lights on the ground before the runway. A Boeing simulator study of a black hole approach showed that pilots consistently crash short of the runway, and so they must have either an electronic or visual glide slope. During this accident, the glide slope was out of service. If you're getting value from this show, please support the show via PayPal, Venmo, the Cash app, Zelle or Patreon.

Seth also talks about the challenges and risks associated with VMC demonstrations and offers constructive suggestions for improving training practices in multi-engine aircraft. Seth explains that Vmc is the minimum controllable airspeed of a multi-engine aircraft when the critical engine is inoperative, and the operative engine is at full power. The FAA mandates specific criteria for this maneuver, emphasizing the need for multi-engine pilots to understand how to control an aircraft during asymmetrical power events. VMC demonstrations are a crucial aspect of multi-engine training, requiring pilots to recover from a VMC condition during their practical tests. The critical engine, which has the most adverse effect on the aircraft when inoperative, is typically determined by factors like P-factor, accelerated slipstream, spiraling slipstream, and torque. The interview delves into the intricacies of Vmc, including how manufacturers are allowed up to 150 pounds of rudder force for certification purposes, and highlights the challenges pilots face in maintaining control during a Vmc scenario. Seth Lake describes an unscientific test he conducted using a force measurement tool in one of his aircraft, revealing the significant rudder forces required to hold coordinated flight in Vmc conditions. He also talks about altitude considerations during Vmc demonstrations. The discussion then turns to the FAA's guidelines for the Vmc demonstration during commercial check rides, examining the specific setup and recovery procedures outlined in the ACS. He also mentions a potential contradiction in other FAA publications, such as the Practical Test Standards for multi-engine instructors, and the importance of understanding these nuances. Seth also raises concerns about the inherent risks associated with Vmc demonstrations and suggests potential improvements to the current practices. He proposes an alternative method that involves holding the ailerons neutral, using full rudder deflection, and avoiding the five degrees of bank specified in the certification criteria. This alternative method aims to increase safety by reducing the likelihood of spins and providing a more realistic experience of loss of directional control. The interview concludes with a discussion on the impact of passenger weight on the aircraft's center of gravity during Vmc demonstrations and highlights the need for careful considerations to enhance safety in these maneuvers.

312 How ATC Heroes Guided a Cincinnati Piper Pilot to Safety + GA News

On the afternoon of Wednesday, 7 Dec, 2022. The Cincinnati, Ohio area had been IMC all day and a single engine aircraft, based at Hogan Field (KHAO) near Cincinnati was flying instrument approaches in IMC conditions with the help of Cincinnati Approach.    The aircraft departed Hogan field, located under the northern portion of the Cincinnati Class Bravo, and its first two instrument approaches went relatively well. It flew to the southeast at 4000 feet, and was given vectors to the RNAV (GPS) 3 Right approach @ KLUK, which is Lunken Field. After flying a low approach to minimums, it flew north to fly the RNAV (GPS) runway 01 @ I68, which is the Warren country airport. The aircraft again flew a low approach to minimums and departed to the south, with a plan to fly the RNAV (GPS) 29 back into Hogan Field. To do that, Cincinnati Approach issued a series of vectors, and ultimately told the aircraft to fly a heading of 260 and join the runway 29 approach course. Later the controller said “You appear to be kind of all over the place.” Subsequently, the controller declared an emergency for the pilot. The pilot was unable to fly the next instrument approach, so the controller ended up talking him down through the clouds.

311 Flying IFR in and out of Airports with no Instrument Approaches + GA News

Max talks with Mark Kolber about Flying IFR in and out of Airports with no Instrument Approaches. Mark Kolber traces his expertise in aviation law to his background as a trial lawyer and a CFI. He emphasizes the importance of understanding rules, regulations, and procedures in IFR, highlighting that a significant portion of IFR involves adherence to regulations due to the potential impact on others. The conversation delves into a specific scenario where a listener reports a Homeowners Association (HOA) planning to ban IFR departures from Sea Ranch, which is a private airport in Northern California. Mark clarifies that there is no regulatory prohibition for Part 91 pilots from taking off IFR from an airport without instrument approaches. He emphasizes that such departures are legal, citing examples of airports where IFR takeoffs occur regularly. The discussion expands to explore the safety considerations associated with IFR departures in IMC from airports without instrument approaches. Mark references regulations like 91.175, which provides guidelines for IFR takeoff and landing, specifying stricter rules for landings compared to departures. The conversation touches on the distinction between Part 91 and Part 135 operations. Mark explains that Part 135 imposes a direct prohibition on IFR operations from airports without approved standard instrument approach procedures. He highlights the role of Operational Specifications (OPSPEC) in allowing deviations from certain regulations for Part 135 operators. Mark delves into the FAA's assessment of airports, particularly the evaluation of obstacle departure procedures (ODP) and how they contribute to safe departures. He explains the purpose of ODPs and the FAA's meticulous assessment process, emphasizing that private airports without instrument approaches lack such evaluations. The podcast explores the concept of creating one's own ODP for airports lacking official assessments. Mark suggests relying on Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) with FAA databases, incorporating local knowledge, and assessing terrain and obstacles using available tools. Mark clarifies that Part 91 pilots have the discretion to fly or not fly ODPs unless specifically assigned by ATC. For Part 135 pilots, adherence to ODPs is mandatory unless certain exceptions apply. The conversation briefly touches on filing IFR to private airports not in the FAA's database. Mark recommends using identifiers if available and provides insights into filing to and from using lat-long coordinates. In summary, the interview provides a comprehensive overview of IFR regulations, safety considerations, and the nuances surrounding departures and arrivals at airports without instrument approaches. The discussion is enriched by Mark Kolber's legal and aviation expertise, offering valuable insights for both pilots and aviation enthusiasts.

304 When to Choose an IAF versus Vectors when Getting Vectors to Final + GA News

Max talks about when to choose an IAF versus Vectors when Getting Vectors to Final. Like most things in aviation, the answer is “It Depends.” In older GPSs, choosing Vectors drops some waypoints, which is fine over flat terrain, but which can be dangerous when vectored over mountainous terrain. This is why CFIs often encouraged pilots to always load an approach with an IAF and not vectors, even when being vectored for an approach. Newer GPSs have solved this problem, and in most cases, it’s fine to load an approach with vectors.

303 Cirrus SR22T Crash at Shelbyville, IN and Why the CAPS Parachute Matters

Max talks about the fatal crash of a SR22T in Shelbyville, IN and why after an engine failure, Cirrus pilots are encouraged to use the CAPS parachute rather than glide down to a field. He also talks about why Cirrus pilots are at greater risk of dying than Cessna pilots if they do attempt to put their airplane into a field. He also describes the physics behind why a parachute pull is safer than trying to land in a field.

302 San Diego Cessna P210 Crash – Poorly flown ILS and low fuel

Max talks about the crash this week of a Cessna P210 in San Diego, and why it crashed. The flight originated in Concord, CA and flew for just over 4 hours to Montgomery Field in San Diego. The aircraft first tried to land at French Valley airport, was high on the approach and went missed. It diverted to Montgomery field to fly the ILS 28R, however the pilot flew about a third of a mile south of the airport, missing the runway. Five minutes after the approach, while climbing for another approach, he ran out of fuel.

301 San Diego Cessna 340 Crash – the Perils of not Understanding Circling and Visual Approaches

Max talks about why the pilot of a Cessna 340 in San Diego turned right instead of joining the localizer and later crashed. It all came down to the pilot’s lack of understanding of how to fly a circling approach, and his inability to communicate that he’d like to switch to a visual approach. This miscommunication led to a controller sending him back into IMC for a second approach. Sadly, at the time, the pilot was in VMC and was preparing to land.

Join Max Trescott as he delves into an astonishing real-life story with Jonathan Fay, who was struck by a laser while flying, and against all odds, tracked down the perpetrator.

He did succeed in landing, though he had eye damage that lasted for several weeks. Tune in to discover the gripping details of how Jonathan leveraged the vast tools of the internet to unmask the identity of the laser-wielding perpetrator.

292 Cirrus SR20 Crash in New Jersey, Remote Towers with Rob Mark + GA News

Max talks with Rob Mark about remote towers, a new technology similar to air traffic control towers, and we discuss why FAA has been so slow to certify them in the U.S., despite successful demonstrations in Virginia and Colorado. Remote towers are in successful operation in other countries. Max also talks about somatogravic illusion how it was most likely the cause of the fatal crash of a Cirrus SR20 that involved a student pilot who crashed at night in NJ, starting an 800 acre wildfire.

291 FAA Administrator nominee Mike Whitaker interview

Max Trescott talked with FAA Administrator nominee Mike Whitaker in 2019 about his former job as FAA Deputy Administrator. Mike talked about that job, about his activity as a Private pilot and his thoughts on NexGen and the future of General Aviation. Mike talked about factors that led to the decline of GA after the 1970s, and his optimism for further growth due to demand for more pilots, the Part 23 rewrite, and new technologies like electric aircraft. He also talked about NextGen, ADS-B, and his prop strike. This is a replay of that 2019 interview.

288 Mastering Non-Towered Airport Operations and Straight-in Approaches with Catherine Cavagnaro

Max talks with Catherine Cavagnaro about the new FAA Advisory Circular AC 90-66C on non-towered operations and straight-in approaches. The new Advisory Circular is significantly longer than the previous version, and it places much more emphasis on straight-in approaches. It says “the FAA does not recommend that the pilot execute a straight-in approach for landing, when there are other aircraft in the traffic pattern.” Pilots choosing to execute a straight-in approach do not have a particular priority over other aircraft in the traffic pattern. Pilots “should not use paint schemes or color descriptions to replace the use of the aircraft call sign.” Also, “Pilots are reminded that the use of the phrase “ANY TRAFFIC IN THE AREA, PLEASE ADVISE” is not a recognized self-announce position and/or intention phrase and should not be used under any condition.” Mentioned on the Show Advisory Circular 90-66C: Non-Towered Airport Flight Operations Catherine Cavagnaro YouTube Channel Ace Aerobatic School Please Support the Show Aviation News Talk is a listener supported show.

287 Truckee Jet Crash: Unstabilized Circling Approach and Poor CRM + GA News

Max talks about the July 2021 crash of a Challenger Jet that was doing a circling approach at the Truckee, CA airport. The NTSB just released its final report on that accident, And there’s a lot that GA pilots can learn from this accident. The NTSB faulted the first officer’s improper decision to attempt to salvage an unstabilized approach by executing a steep left turn to realign the airplane with the runway centerline, and the captain’s failure to intervene after recognizing the FO’s erroneous action. Both pilots both ignored stall protection system warnings, which resulted in a left-wing stall and an impact with terrain. The NTSB also cited the flight crew’s self-induced pressure to perform and poor crew resource management, which degraded their decision-making. The flight was the first pairing of this crew with the operator. The captain, who had signed an employment contract with the operator, but was not yet an employee at the time of the accident. The first officer was not the accident operator’s employee at the time of the accident and had been hired as a contract pilot for the accident flight. The pilots calculated that runway 20 was too short for the landing distance required by the airplane at its expected landing weight. Instead of making a request to ATC for the straight-in approach to runway 11 (the longer runway), the captain told the FO they could take the runway 20 approach and circle to land on runway 11. There is a straight-in RNAV (GPS) approach to runway 11, but the pilots didn’t request it. Please Support the Show Aviation News Talk is a listener supported show.

286 Flying Relief to Maui's Wildfire Victims – interview Laurence Balter

Max talks with Laurence Balter about how the general aviation community in Hawaii is flying relief supplies to help victims of Maui’s wildfires. The town of Lahaina is served by just a single road, which has closed frequently since the wildfires began a week ago. Electricity and cell phone outages have also hampered relief efforts. Soon after the fires, local Maui pilots began organizing to fly supplies into Kapalua Airport, near Lahaina, but which is closed to most general aviation flights. The pilots received permission to fly into Kapalua, and began flying relief supplies to the airport. Balter and Maui Brewing founder Garrett Marrero organized the effort via text messages and social media, and flights began on August 11. The pilot group worked with the airport fire departments at Maui's main Kahului Airport. Firefighters and volunteers weighed and loaded supplies that were delivered to the fire station. The process worked in reverse at theKapalua airport, where local fire fighters unloaded planes and helicopters and arranged for the distribution of supplies to local victims in Lahaina. Laurence is flying his relief flights using the Cirrus SR22 that he usually uses for dual-led flying experiences, for pilots vacationing on Maui who are interested in flying a Cirrus and getting exposed to flying in Hawaii. He's also set up a Go Fund me page for people interested in donating to pay for avgas that volunteer pilots have had to pay for to fly the wildfire relief missions.

285 How to Choose a Flight Instructor and When to Fire a CFI + GA News

Choosing a flight instructor is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as you work to become a pilot, and later as you work on additional certificates and ratings. And that’s because having the right CFI can be one of the biggest factors in your success. Not that you can’t succeed with an awful flight instructor, but it’s so much easier if you’re with the right flight instructor. Most likely, you’ll get to choose a new flight instructor multiple times, either because your first flight instructor has moved on, or you’ve moved to a new location, or you’re working on advanced training in some aircraft in which your previous flight instructor doesn’t specialize. And the flip side of all of this is firing a flight instructor, which we’ll talk about later. Since choosing the right flight instructor is so important, you’ll want to give this a lot of thought and not just sign up with the first flight instructor you come across, or your friend, or your employee who’s been itching to get you to fly with them. Unfortunately, in some cases, you won’t get to choose your flight instructor. If you learn to fly in the military or in a Part 141 school, you probably won’t have a choice of flight instructors. Though you will probably end up flying with multiple instructors. And that’s a good thing. As every CFI tends to put more emphasis on some things and less emphasis on others. And by flying with multiple instructors, you’ll pick up on nuances that your primary instructor never mentioned, or didn’t put much emphasis on. Ultimately, when you’re working on a pilot certificate, or a new rating or certificate, or transitioning into a new aircraft, you’re working to assimilate a body of knowledge to help you become the best possible pilot. Your goal is not just to pass a checkride. Your goal is mastery of the aircraft. And to do that you’ll pull from many resources. You’ll try to be a sponge and learn as much as you can from books, online courses, and videos. And you’ll try to learn something from each of the flight instructors you fly with. Choosing a flight instructor is not a precise science; there’s no textbook-like process or formula for choosing that person. Ultimately, it’s a subjective process, and that’s appropriate, because there’s no one flight instructor who’s perfect for everyone. A flight instructor who was ideal for a pilot friend of yours… may not be the right one for you for a variety of reasons. Please Support the Show Aviation News Talk is a listener supported show.

Summary 284 The final NTSB report is out for Transair flight 810, which crashed at night in the ocean shortly after takeoff from Hawaii. The pilots thought that they had a rare double engine failure. In fact, they had just a single engine failure, but they left both throttles at idle, dooming the plane. The probable cause said “contributing to the accident were the flight crew’s ineffective crew resource management, high workload, and stress.” Max talks about the huge distraction that consumed both pilots for a half hour, just moments before they took off.

Summary 283 Max talks about his experience getting a helicopter add-on rating, and how you can do it too. The FAA allows a fixed wing pilot to add-on a helicopter rating with 30 hours of helicopter time. For someone without a pilot certificate, they’ll need a minimum of 40 hours of time. The add-on helicopter checkride for a pilot is relatively short compared to the checkride a non-pilot would have to do.

Summary 281 Max talks with Catherine Cavagnaro about the Myth of the 70-50 takeoff rule and what’s wrong with it. It seems that 70-50 rule is extracted from a basic but unrealistic model for aircraft takeoffs that ignores air resistance. The same model predicts her Bonanza will go supersonic shortly after takeoff. Even if the rule were valid, a pilot wouldn’t rotate until the last inch of the runway.

Summary 269 Max talks with Seth Lake about how to use and how not to use ForeFlight for a successful checkride. Even if you aren’t planning to take a checkride, you’ll learn lots of tips from Seth about how to use the Documents tab of ForeFlight to organize information that you may want to have at your fingertips when you fly. He recommends you create a Binder for your checkride and then add documents to that binder. For example, for an instrument checkride, you may want to include some of the FAA Handbooks, including the Instrument Procedures Handbook and the Instrument Flying Handbook. Other things you might want to include are: Part 61, Part 91, Part 135, ACS Instrument Rating Airplane, Aeronautical Information Manual, Digital Terminal Procedures Supplemental and FAA International Flight Plan. He also mentions a glitch with the Bookmarks function, which is keyed to a particular page in a document, rather than a particular topic. This can become an issue as documents get updated with new pages, and the topics shift to different pages.   Mentioned in the Show ForeFlightSeth Lake’s VSL Aviation web siteSeth Lake’s podcast Check Out Lightspeed's ANR Headsets Lightspeed Delta Zulu Headset $1099 Lightspeed Zulu 3 Headset $899Lightspeed Sierra Headset $699 Max’s Books – Order online or call 800-247-6553 to order.

Summary 268 Max talks with Tom Turner about how to troubleshoot a partial or total engine failure in flight. Every engine is going to be a little different, but there are generic steps for troubleshooting any partial or complete engine failure. All piston engines need fuel, air, and a source of ignition, so you need to check each of these items. For fuel, switch tanks, turn on any auxiliary fuel pumps, and adjust the mixture. If you have carb heat and a manual alternate air system, try applying these. For ignition, try different positions on the mag switch to see if that helps. The mixture on turbocharged engines is handled differently. In all cases, you should refer to the engine failure in flight checklist for your aircraft.

Summary267 Max plays audio from ATC and the NTSB press conference and discusses what preceded the fatal breakup of a medevac Pilatus PC-12 in Nevada. The aircraft departed Reno, International Airport on February 24, 2023 at about 9 PM. It was snowing lightly at the time, and moderate turbulence and icing were reported in the area. It was a medevac flight with a pilot and four passengers, including a patient. Approximately 15 minutes after departure, the aircraft turned off the instrument departure procedure it was flying, turning about 90 degrees to the right. It appears the autopilot was disconnected about the time of the turn and that the pilot hand flew the airplane to get it back on the original course. About a minute later, it began a steep spiraling turn to the right with a high descent rate. Max discusses possible reasons the autopilot may have become disconnected.

Summary 265 Max talks about Precipitation Static, sometimes called p-static. P-static is a phenomenon that can affect aircraft in flight, particularly in areas of high humidity or where there is precipitation. It is a form of electrostatic discharge that can cause interference with an aircraft's communication and navigation systems. Static electricity is created by air friction as an aircraft flies, and when the electric charge accumulates sufficiently to discharge, radio interference is generated.

Send us your feedback or comment via email If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary 264 Max reads listener letters and feedback. An FAA employee recommends pilots adopt the newer phraseology for declaring an emergency, which is "requesting priority handling." He believes pilots are reluctant to declare an emergency, as it suggests that what went wrong was their fault.

Summary 262 Max talks with Tom Turner about an ATSB study showing that partial power loss is 3X more likely than complete engine failure. It also shows that that serious injury or death occurred more frequently in partial power loss versus complete engine failures. With full power or no power, pilots know what to do. But the uncertainty of partial power loss makes it harder for pilots to decide what to do.

214 San Diego Learjet Crash – Interview with Rob Mark

214 San Diego Learjet Crash – Interview with Rob Mark Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you're thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance, or to take my online seminar: So You Want to Fly or Buy a Cirrus. Please help support the show with a donation via PayPal or Patreon. Send us an email If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary 214 Max talks with Rob Mark about the San Diego Learjet Crash in El Cajon, and early clues that this landing wouldn’t succeed. The air ambulance flight crashed in poor weather, after canceling IFR, as required at night to land on a longer runway. A poorly flown traffic pattern at low altitude sealed their fate. Max and Rob asked pilots to think about when they would have diverted, if they were flying. N880Z, a Learjet 35A, crashed while landing at night at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, north of San Diego. The crash was where the base intersects the final, which is a classic location for stall/spin accidents. The aircraft flew a traffic pattern that was lower and farther east than usual, and they were headed straight for Rattlesnake Mountain, which was a couple hundred feet higher than the aircraft. The aircraft crashed about 0.1 miles from the base of the mountain on Pepper Drive. There were no survivors. The air ambulance flight originated from John Wayne Airport, which was a short, 18-minute flight to Gillespie. The weather at the time was at VFR minimums and IFR minimums for circling. The weather was 3 mile visibility with mist and a broken layer of clouds at 2,000 feet and an overcast layer at 2,600 feet. The two-pilot crew flew the RNAV (GPS) 17 approach, which has LP minimums of 1,360 feet, for a straight in landing to runway 17. However runway 17 is more than a 1,000 feet shorter than runway 27R, and when the aircraft was approximately 3 miles north of the airport, they cancelled IFR and requested to land on runway 27R. Circling to runway 27R is not permitted at night when flying IFR, which is why the crew cancelled IFR, so that there were legally permitted to land on 27R. The aircraft crossed overhead the airport very low at 725 feet, less than 350 feet above the field elevation of 388 feet. The aircraft then climbed to 950 feet in a left traffic pattern to 27R. The aircraft flew a traffic pattern that was farther north and east than their prior circles to runway 27R. This resulted in them flying directly toward Rattlesnake Mountain.

213 Why You Should Join a Type Club - Interview Catherine Cavagnaro

213 Why You Should Join a Type Club - Interview Catherine Cavagnaro Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you're thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance, or to take my online seminar: So You Want to Fly or Buy a Cirrus. Please help support the show with a donation via PayPal or Patreon. Send us an email If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary 213 Max talks with Catherine Cavagnaro about aircraft type clubs and why pilots should join one. There are more than a hundred of them, yet only a fraction of pilots belong to one. Yet they offer the best value proposition in aviation: they’re cheap and they could save your life. Most type clubs offer a newsletter or magazine and many have a web site loaded with aircraft details.  As I wrote in a blog article for AOPA eight years ago, "Give yourself an early Christmas present: Join the type club for the aircraft you fly most frequently. But don’t just write a check; become an active participant. Whether you own or rent, you’re bound to learn more about the intricacies of that aircraft model. And if your family is lucky, what you learn as a type club member may someday save your life…and possibly their lives too."

Summary197 This is a follow up to #196 on Mountain Flying. Most aircraft need to be leaned prior to takeoff in high density altitude. Turbocharged aircraft and older SR20s don’t need leaning. Max discusses many methods of leaning before takeoff. Always start with your POH to see what method it recommends. If it doesn’t recommend a specific method, then you may want to use one of the methods discussed here.

192 Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark

192 Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you're thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance, or to take my online seminar: So You Want to Fly or Buy a Cirrus. Please help support the show with a donation via PayPal or Patreon. Send us an email If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary192 Max talks with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark about minimizing takeoff risks. Per the NTSB, 26% of fatalities occur during takeoff, so pilots need to plan for what they’ll do if things don’t go well during the takeoff. Engine failure can occur, but a partial power loss is three times more likely than a complete engine failure. Rob also shares a long list of tips for avoiding takeoff emergencies. Rob's Tips for Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies • Don’t simply read the before-takeoff checklist; make sure you’ve accomplished the required tasks. • Recheck that the tank chosen for takeoff contains sufficient fuel. • Check that the backup fuel pump is on if the aircraft requires it for takeoff. • Recheck that takeoff flaps are properly set. • How many inches of manifold pressure and/or what rpm should the engine deliver during the takeoff roll? • Don’t accept an intersection departure that leaves valuable runway behind you. • Note the distance (in feet) of your upcoming ground roll. • Highlight the intersection where the aircraft should break ground. • If you’re not airborne by the highlighted spot, do you have enough remaining runway to stop? • Have you surveyed the area off the departure end of the runway for potential landing spots? • If you’ve never practiced making a 180-degree turn back after a loss of power, don’t make today the day to try one. • If you’re forced into an off-airport landing, your job is to protect the people on board—the airplane’s insured.

Send us an email If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary183 Max talks about the Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpits and the many aircraft they’re in from the F-5 fighter jet to the Cirrus Vision Jet. He also discusses differences from the G1000 and Perspective, and why the G3000 and G5000 are easier to use. He also talks about his new G3000 and G5000 book. Later, he interviews Nick Sinopoli, inventor of the ICARUS Devices Smart Hood for IFR training. Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit What do some fighter jets, light business jets, turboprops and even Joby Aviation’s eVTOL all have in common? They all use, or plan to use, the Garmin G3000 or G5000 glass cockpit! The Garmin G3000 and G5000 are used in twenty-three aircraft models, and manufacturers have announced plans to use them in a half dozen other models. Now there’s a new source of information for pilots flying these aircraft: Max Trescott's G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit Handbook! Max Trescott, the 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year, uses a narrative approach to explaining the G3000 and G5000 from a pilot’s perspective in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. He starts by describing the hardware, including the displays and touchscreen controllers, and then describes how to use each function, including the radios, programming flight plans and instrument approaches, and using the autopilot and electronic checklists. He also teaches the data link weather products available through SiriusXM, ADS-B FIS-B weather, and Garmin Connext Weather. Throughout the book, you’ll find practical tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced glass cockpit instructors, on how to use different features. Pilots may want to keep a copy of the book in the cockpit and use the book’s detailed Index, so they can quickly look up how to use a feature. The book is 312 pages and includes 367 color images. Some of the G3000/G5000-equipped aircraft covered in the book include: • Cessna Citation M2, CJ3+, Sovereign+, Latitude, Longitude, Denali, and 10+ • Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet • Daher TBM 930 and TBM 940 • Embraer Phenom EV100 and 300E • Honda HA-420 HondaJet • Learjet 70, 75, and 75 Liberty • Piper M600 and M600 SLS • retrofitted Cessna Citation Excel and XLS • retrofitted Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP • retrofitted TacAir F-5 fighter jets News Stories New FAA AC on How to Conduct A Self Briefing Ipad Pilot News version of How to Conduct a Self Briefing Luscombe 8 back into production as an LSA United Airlines to open flight school, plans to increase diversity £50,000 prize for human powered cross-Channel race A380 caused conflicts after wrong turn during go-around UPS to buy eVTOL aircraft to speed up package delivery Wisk Aero accuses rival flying taxi firm of ‘brazen theft’ in lawsuit His Plane Crashed in the Amazon.
