Hard to expect anything but a disaster. Jepp service to GA pilots went seriously downhill after the Boeing acquisition. Now Boeing owns two competing products, hard to imagine them both surviving....

Is there a source of recent (last 24 hours) ATC conversations? I'd like to listen to what was going on on SFO ground at around 2030 PST yesterday (17/1).

Why? A very curious situation. My flight...

Anything Korean.

Air Canada (unless you like landing on taxiways, closed runways, etc).

I'd say Air France, but we don't really have much choice there. They definitely seem to have a pilot...

By far your best bet is to find a school that will get you an FAA LSA license. If you have a visa that allows you to work you won't have a problem with that. You will almost certainly need to get TSA...

Well yes, but the idea was that the duplex bearing took care of this. So a second bearing would only be relevant when the main duplex bearing had failed - I guess it never occurred to anyone this...

I'm curious how this could possibly be recovered given any amount of height/speed. As I understand, even entering autorotation wouldn't help - the TR is in full right pitch and you'll just rotate all...

I'm right handed, but normally fly with my left-hand - as do most pilots I think. Left hand on the yoke, right hand for radios, throttle, etc. In something with a side stick (Cirrus, Airbus...) you...

Poor choice of phrase.

Do you need a type rating for a 206? I didn't think so, it's under 12500 lbs.

Maybe for some reason it wasn't possible to do the TR checkride under the hood? So it was...

I don't understand. Just watched the video. The aircraft is rotating clockwise (viewed from above). Surely that's the SAME as the rotor rotation? Or does the 139 have US-style anti-clockwise rotor?

I don't understand how this will work. I thought the Islander was powered by the noise the engines make?
