Great book to read is "Wings On My Sleeve" by Eric Brown. Only pilot in the world to have flown most of the airplanes of WWII.

Do you need a type rating to fly your own Bitchcraft 1900 or Cessna CJ2?


The type rating is required in aircraft that need additional training. It is a safety of flight issue not a for hire issue.

What is LARGEST passenger glider or sailplane available now?


I can speak confidently but not authoritatively on this, so let's consider this answer tentative. I would be glad to be corrected.

Military gliders were replaced by helicopters after World War II, and no one seems to have found a civilian use for large ones. Unpowered flight is a sport, now, so there don't seem to be any with more than 2 seats. The only recent exception I can think of is the Space Shuttle, which was unpowered during its return from orbit.

Is it worth to buy a 30 year old Cessna to build time?


Older planes are usually very good purchases, IF they have been well maintained over the years. Airplanes have to be inspected annually by an A&P mechanic with an Inspection Authorization so they are usually very well maintained. Any purchase should include having an A&P mechanic review the airframe and engine logs and evaluation of the plane, including looking at how many hours the engine has since overhaul and checking compression. I had a 1966 Cherokee 140 for several years and finally sold it when I bought my current Experimental aircraft (a BD-4). It helps a LOT if you can get an A&P license and maintain you own plane though.

What are some limitations on airplane flaps?


Usually it is airspeed of the aircraft. Each aircraft has different airspeed requirements for operation the flaps or landing gear. Usually that speed is determined by the airframe manufacturers and the design of the flap system component. You could built it strong enough to handle any airspeed, but a plane can only carry so much weight. If you built everything to work without any limitations you might have an airplane too heavy to fly. Designing a plane is a balance between lifting capability and weight. Both of these are important design parameters.

Airplane question?


That would be the ground prox system on the aircraft it lets the flight crew know how far they are above the ground during an approach to the landing runway.

Why no whole-plane parachute system on commercial flights?


Aircraft too heavy. Weight is extremely valuable/expensive and the weight of a parachute system would be too heavy and costly, sacrificing room for paying passengers.
