I agree with you. Killing the power was a crazy bad idea by the look of the short report. Go try it yourself at White Waltham where, if memory serves, there is a beautiful bump that launches you...

It's a fair point and well made, but I did say "I think we all agree that extra hours generally makes for better skills".

DI clearly lacked the requisite skills for his final mission.... ...

I respect your view but am going to consider this for another thread. I think we all agree that extra hours generally makes for better skills and better skills lead to safer operation in GA/ PPL...

I can't see much to criticise in that clip of Grant Shapps, to be honest - I'll re-listen but didn't hear any dismissal of medicals. Not sure I can face listening to the whole 1hr 40 mins of it. ...

That changes a lot of the debate and it circles back to the fact that the pilot was clearly at fault for embarking on this flight that night. So there we have it, pilot error is the ultimate...

A and C I think you are being a little harsh here. He passed over the Island and airfield at Guernsey in VMC and under control at that point. The flight became problematic for him when he hit the...

I agree with you but a functioning AP doesn't usually end up in a meandering spatially disoriented descent into the sea. Personally I trust my hand flying more in the main but in a high workload IMC...

The bottom line is this - the aircraft had, I assume, an autopilot. If that's the case this flight could have been handled safely by almost anyone who could operate the AP. Regardless of...

This set of weather data, available before the flight SCREAMS to any sane PPL, even with IMC and Night ratings, and current, and experienced etc etc "Don't Go!" Or at least it does to me. My ex CFI...

With respect to @Mike Flynn, there are many perfectly legitimate reasons to have an N reg within the UK on a long term basis. The FAA allow certain modifications that the CAA don't (don't ask me...

I'm wondering if the owner of the Navajo knows it appears on a site like that? I have to admit that is quite something to see Flissair's website. I cannot imagine they'd be busy but the point is...

I'm not suggesting that we adopt the same approach to aviation as to road safety - quite the opposite in fact - but the fact that globally every single GA crash is deemed newsworthy suggests to me...

I agree with ChickenHouse regulation generally makes flying more expensive. More expensive means less hours, less practice and more danger. Regulation is not always the answer. Enforcement of...

Pilot DAR that is a great post - it's always good to learn from others. I'll join this thread and share some of my "interesting moments" of the last 23 years at the controls when I get a moment. I've...

Arfur Dent I obviously, as a mere mortal PPL, salute your credentials flying thoroughbreds in the RAF and heavies in Civvy Street but really, I think your prejudice against SEP operations flies in...

@eckhard I salute you! There used to be an AA5 club aircraft near me but the endless damage it sustained meant it was replaced with a more forgiving Archer 2. Personally I love the AA5 but the...

I would have thought a recovery would be necessary to assess the state of the engine at the time of the ditching. Irrespective of all the other speculation, if the fan quit prior to the descent, I...

I would have thought that notwithstanding the legalities or otherwise of the flight, it would be significant if the wreckage showed, for example, an engine failure? Hence a very worthwhile...

Wow, what an interesting thread. I thought we in the UK had the world championship for whingeing about the decline of GA in the bag. Now I'm not so sure!! And we have much worse weather to contend...

I'm a pilot. I know other pilots, we are a fairly small community.

Mr Thruthseeker appears not to be one according to his published profile.

They are nice aircraft but the 160 Cheetah is underpowered and the Tiger lovely but that tendency to porpoise and bite you....

Thanks! I do my best!
I'm not one to hide my views under a bushel so there will be more where that came from albeit probably not on this unhappy tale.

I am beginning to think "Truthseeker" is looking for a conspiracy where none exists. This is a forum, I thought, for pilots to discuss topical matters.

Here's what I understand and I don't think...
