From what I read the flight controls came free again during the final stage of the forced landing, the pilot elected to complete the F/L. One would have to imagine that after an inspection by ground crew it was deemed safe to fly back to YSTW

The final stages being after the wheels hit the ground and unjammed the control run.

Correct. (and something else in order to make up the minimum characters!)

I don't know about you cooda, but if I were executing a F/L due to control limitations and suddenly everything returned to normal, no matter what stage, I would get that thing on the ground and leave it there. I wouldn't fancy attempting a return to the air field and risk landing using only secondary effects of controls!!

We are in heated agreement regarding the actions we might take if we found ourselves in a similar situation.

I was just intrigued that there is a written report out there suggesting that the controls freed up while they were still in the air. As CSD agrees, that was not the case as I understood it.

Hey b91,

Congrats on your selection for the July 19th program. I'm actually on the course coming up on June 29th, so hopefully we both get the good news!

I had something to attend on both weekends it covers, but they flat out said "you're not very competitive at the moment, you got this offer because someone else couldn't make it, if you don't take it you may not get another"

Good work mate.

Just a heads up there are 3 courses on FSP now:
Basic (0-10 hours)
Intermediate (10-40 hours)
Advanced (>40 hours)

good luck!

Basic has 8 sorties
Intermediate has 7
Advanced has 6

Aswell as covering the basic syllabus intermediate and advanced do barrel rolls. Advanced do low level circuits and extra check lists.

Red Barron FSP cram course

Hi guys,

I'm just wondering if anyone has completed the Red Barron FSP CRAM course prior to FSP, or been through with someone who has.

I'd particularly like to know if they felt that it gave them an edge on FSP in terms of being more competitive than others.

New here :)) Flight screening call up

Hey guys,

Was wondering what kind of backgrounds those of you that have gotten called up for flight screening has. Also how long you guys had to wait from your application being sent through to the PSA to getting a call up for flight screening.
PS. Good luck to all those already in flight screening and to those about to go.

There are a range of different background. For example on my FSP there were guys with 0 flying hours and two guys with CPL and 200+ hours. Waiting time varies depending on your competitiveness, however I got a call about 2 months after I got all my medical stuff sorted.

Happy to answer any questions through PM if anyone has them.

Hi Guys.

Had my assessment day yesterday and was recommended. Need to sort out a few medical issues before my file can be sent away to PSA.

Quick question for anyone who went through with some experience: On the aircrew selection preference form, did you put down any simulator or copilot time under your previous flying hours?

Also, does anyone know when the FSP dates will be up on the website for the 2014/15 FY?

Thanks.
