Jets, by nature perform better at altitude. Fuel economy and performance are much better up high.

It is very common for small airports not to have a control tower, radar, or communications equipment. There are very well developed procedures for "uncontrolled airports". There is a standard traffic pattern that aircraft fly at almost all airports (consisting of a downwind, base, final, and upwind leg) and there are specific radio calls that are supposed to be made at certain points in the pattern. Most airports have a fixed base operator to supply fuel and services. They often monitor the common traffic frequency and supply some info to pilots about wind direction and runway in use. There's also a specific way to enter the pattern - usually at a 45 degree of the downwind leg, Yes it's possible for aircraft to collide and it happens several times a year - usually when a low wing airplane is above a high wing airplane in the pattern. Neither can see the other so occasionally that can happen.

To an atheist, the threat of hell is just one more brainwashing trick of religious education. There comes a time, if one is alert through life when one finally discovers that it's purely ridiculous to pray to God for your team to win or for this to happen or that to not happen. There's no value in it. The only good it does is to give the person praying false hope. Face it, stuff happens. Unexplainable things happen and religious people call them miracles. Religion was invented because people couldn't understand why things happened so they created a deity as an easy explanation. If you research religion, the Jesus-like character has existed in many different stories in many different times even to ancient times (many many years BC) The Bible is so often taken out of context and only the portions that are convenient to the follower are ever followed. Many current trends, such as tattoos are expressly forbidden in the Bible,. In today's world a majority of Christians seem to be conservative politically which does not even begin to follow the teachings of Christ, who promoted social programs, give your riches to the poor, etc.... No atheists need not fear hell because it will be filled with Christians. While Christians all endure the rapture the atheists will gladly stay behind and take care of the Christians' pets.

Only in the practice of thinking of what you need to say before you key the mic. Possibly in being able to understand incoming transmissions also, but that won't help too much unless you have an idea of what kind of calls you can expect in each circumstance so that you can deal with some of the rapid fire controllers out there.

If you're going for a Private Pilot Single Engine Land (PPSEL) certificate you don't need to know anything about IFR approaches. You will learn to fly traffic patterns and all the maneuvers and procedures required for that and for safe flight, learn how to navigate, and learn about airplane systems. You can get a huge head start by looking at websites and you tube links from places like Boldmethod.com, MzeroA.com, and UND aviation.

It's quite permissible to do so, however a general aviation pilot in a low performance plane should be ready for fast instructions and quite a bit of maneuvering to stay out of the way. The best time to do it would be at night. Here's a youtube video of one doing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKvWn317tpU

It is not only ******* for a VFR only pilot to fly in the IFR system, it is also potentially very dangerous. Even many IFR rated pilots are killed each year from spatial disorientation. IF you are on a straight in approach to a runway with a localizer or ILS and just tune it in and fly the ILS I don't think that's an issue.

I would understand, but I'm a private pilot so that may not count.

North Americans often say " Seven Oh Seven " (erroneously) -
We often also used " Oh " in flight numbers - such as " Clipper one oh three "
They often use " Oh " rather than " zero " when giving phone numbers.

the Concord nose drops down for take off and landing since the aircraft has a high nose up attitude at slow speeds. the tilt allows the pilots to see the runway.

it is the relative direction around the aircraft using a clock face. 12 oclock is in front of the pilot, 6 oclock behind. 3 oclock to the right etc. it is also used with high, level or low. for example, a contact off to the right and above the flight level of the pilots aircraft would be 2 oclock high.

He would be stretching himself too thin to do it all at once. Airport police chief would require all his time spent on the ground, so being a pilot is possible, it would be impractical.

i am a pilot. I flew helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. I am afraid of heights. but that means i am terrified to look down from a high building or a cliff. when i strapped into a 23,000 pound 45 foot long helicopter i feared nothing.
