The AIM is not regulatory so there is not really any absolute rules to go by. The AIM does give procedures which should be followed but some pilots do not. In many cases they make it harder for the rest of us who do follow the AIM procedures. I was watching a YouTube video yesterday where a group of "supposedly" accomplished pilots flew a C172 from DAB to CDK. These hotshots proceeded to fly a 10 mile straight in to Cedar Key, not even apparently looking for NORDO traffic, thus ruining the trip as far as I was concerned.

because if you eject up you will get chopped up in the rotors. it is safer to autorotate and land the helicopter. if you land hard, all the parts that fall off are thrown away from you.

For the foreseeable future there will be a good demand for pilots. Some planes can already auto land with no pilot input but it will be many years before pilots disappear and there is almost always a pilot shortage.

I recently browsed a forum where this was debated by the FE believers vs normal OE people. (Obloid Earth).
The FE'ers simply believe that photos, videos etc are hoaxes. :))

its all about relative motion and being part of the earth atmosphere system, the plane is matched in speed with the earth. its the same reason we dont fly away when we jump up.

As the wings are lifted by differences in air pressure and gravity acts on the fuselage, the extra fuel load in the wings won't really affect the curvature. Rather, this is for the large storage capacity (volume) of the wings, and the safer option that your fuel tanks are outboard, rather than crew / passengers sitting directly on top of a "belly" tank. In event of a fuel-fire or crash, there is still a chance of fire being extinguished, or fuel-laden wings breaking away in a major crash. The spread-out mass of the wings also adds to stability by increasing the inertia.

Yes, it's as bad as calling you "Roger" over the radio when your name is "Fred". Generally, a Major catastrophe. Needs Corporal punishment. :)

have lots of money and be willing to lose 1 mil the first year.

Aircrafts | Answered on Sep 19, 2017

yes, but you would be very restricted.

Really depends who you think your audience is. Lay people may just want to know how a plane flys or why certain things happen on commercial flights. Pilots may want to learn about skills/ratings they havent acquired yet, recent incidents.

There are some speed limits for certain types of airspace. Airliners are always in contact with air traffic control and in order to keep the required separation of aircraft sometimes the controllers will ask the pilot to maintain an airspeed. More than likely you experienced a slowdown while your plane was beginning an approach, During approach controllers have to maintain specific spacing between aircraft and often must slow them down behind slower aircraft. Your plane very likely was slowing down from approx 570 knots to 250 knots or less for the approach.

The pilot of the aircraft with the compressor stalls was calling "mayday mayday mayday" then explaining his problem. The response was the tower acknowledging the mayday call and telling the pilot that he's cleared for any runway that he needs.

Well technically you can make a ducted fan plane but it is highly inefficient as battery technology is still in its infant stages as well as batteries are still very heavy. Secondly Jet engines are basically high bypass turbines.. They can technically run on many different fuels such as diesel, kerosene, and propane.

Here are all the answers you need. Basically you can fly without registering under certain rules outlined on this website..

The demand for pilots within the next 10 years will be extremely high globally. You are correct, not many train engineer schools out there but as far as difficulty each have their bulk share of responsibilities for safe operation.

They have, plenty of videos on youtube, however it is more in the research and development stage than mass production.

Airlines from the U.S. contract pilots based on their qualifications and the right to work in the U.S. It is ilegal to discriminate against race, ethnic background, veteran status.
