    Ferry Pilot Recounts Too-Long Cross Country Flight In A Pitts Learn why Bill Cox questions his decision to fly a Pitts S2B from Arlington, Texas to Long Beach, California. I count myself lucky to have flown a large number of airplanes.   A cross country needs to be 50 nm for some ratings, but not for others. Nothing magic about the 50nm distance. Sometimes a flight can be logged as cross country and counted as C.C. towards some particular rating. Sometimes a flight can be logged as cross country but can not be counted as C.C. towards some particular rating.

      Olympus Aviation Academy is founded and operated by veteran air force and civil aviation Flight Instructors, following the highest of European Civila Aviation Authority/EASA standards. The school offers From 0 to Airline pilot (0-ATPL in 12 mo. plus MCC, JOC, Type Rating), experienced staff, and high quality training with flying days.   Panic is an exaggerated form of the fight-or-flight response, in which the perception of immediate danger triggers a cascade of physiological and psychological responses. The brain registers fear in the amygdala, which signals the hypothalamus to release a flood of hormones that charge the body for either a fight or a flight from the danger.

    Motion Sickness Motion sickness, or airsickness, is caused by the brain receiving conflicting messages about the state of the body. A pilot may experience motion sickness during initial flights, but it generally goes away within the first few lessons. Anxiety and stress, which may be experienced at the beginning of flight training, can contribute to motion sickness. Symptoms of motion sickness. Of course, pilots go through a lot of psychological and physical screening and they are trained to cope with co-pilots who might show up to work drunk or in some other way incapacitated.

Melton, Vincent Fiorica. If you will be flying in CAVU, fine, but if not, start reading books like Bucks "Weather Flying." Make each of these trips learning exercises, where the actual flight is the capstone project.

The second suggestion, and the often unpopular one, is to use pilotage and dead reckoning. You'll need a weather book or two in order to learn the "codes" used in aviation weather. These days, much of it is can be translated for the unfamiliar pilot, but trust me, you’ll use this one a lot, especially when you start flying cross-country flights and are left to interpret all of those pesky weather reports filled with code on your own.

Physiological affects of Flying Hi guys. just like to start by saying i've been looking at this forum for months now and only joined yesterday (don't ask why i never did in the first place cuz i have no idea!) so glad to be a part of the communtiy now.

The confessions of an airline pilot “On a regular flight the autopilot does around 90 per cent of the flying.” Pilots usually handle the landing, but many modern aircraft and airports even. On an average day in the United States about two light airplane accidents occur because of the inattention, negligence, forgetfulness, ignorance, ineptitude, or stupidity (natural or pharmacolo­ gical) of the pilot.1 These accidents cause the deaths of an average of about two people per day.

The greatest weakness a student pilot has is that they lack the pilot skills to judge the quality of the super pilot assigned to be their instructor. Before first solo, the new student has all instructors on a throne. The CFI is god-like, certified by the government and endowed with such superior skills that they can “teach ME to fly.”Author: Jim Macklin.

As it turned out, it was not so easy. For better or worse, there was nothing about the Pitts S2B targeted at cross-country flight.

For one thing, fuel is limited to only 29 gallons, plenty for learning aerobatics, but for launching cross country, it’s not much fuel. It gives you only about 90 minutes of endurance plus reserve. Summary. Flight Nine is your first cross-country flight.

You make use of the planning skills learned in Flight Eight and use dead reckoning and pilotage to navigate to an airport at least 50 miles from your home base. This flight also introduces you procedures for opening and closing flight plans with flight service stations, how to request flight following and the communications procedures.

email [email protected] Learn to Fly web sitesFile Size: KB. Physiology. Pilots must constantly be aware of the physical and mental effects of flight. From gauging the effects of fatigue or high altitude on the body to using oxygen (even when it’s not required), this awareness can make a difference in the safe outcome of a flight.

Pilots also must judge their performance as they age, matching the flight operations and type of aircraft with their abilities.
