I have been to Greece many times since 2004 - some writeups here (http://www.peter2000.co.uk/aviation/)

Never had anything like this issue. Lovely...

They do have insurance for that, however. I used to know a Virgin pilot who had a standard 250k cover against losing his Class 1.

We are talking cross-purposes (as usual).

I didn't write that one should takeoff with any ice on the wings or the elevator.

I was referring to the hull (the cockpit exterior, etc).

I agree with that, but let me inject a little bit of reality.

How long has the PA28 been out? A few decades. Countless tens of thousands are (or have been) flying.

I simply do not buy that 2mm...

Not sure if somebody has got their wires crossed but the whole JAA ATPL QB was obtained under the FOIA in (IIRC) Germany and then translated into English. This was all legit.

Discouraged by some of the ageing ex RAF jolly good chaps who went to the CAA to continue their pension contributions :)

No legal basis for that at all.

Any kind of convective cloud is bad news for structural ice, but the by far worst ice encounter I have ever had was in NS, base 1500ft and smooth, tops 4000ft and smooth, all very smooth with zero...

Nothing illegal about it, but if you put the video on Y0utube, try to not get killed shortly afterwards like that crazy pilot did the other week (can't find the link at the moment) :) :)

Not if you have a half decent GPS, and nobody should be doing IFR (and IMHO VFR nav too) without at least the instructor having a GPS running constantly.

Icing conditions do remain a problem in...

In these debates, everybody who wants to look good will always take the position of an absolutely clean airframe.

It is a bit like arguing against CRB checks for PE teachers ;)

It depends a lot on how often you fly.

The average TT is ~ 20 hours.

IMHO, flying a minimum once a week is highly desirable otherwise one just goes rusty.

You can do 20hrs between now and...

Which bit... the one about people writing one-line questions can't be expecting useful answers, or the one about ice?

I would not say "zero ice" is a must.

What is important is to not have it on the flying surfaces (wings, elevator).

Having some on the hull is OK, within reason, in general. It does increase...

You may have inadvertently hit the nail which applies to so many questions on pilot forums.

Too many people post one-liners, which can be answered only with an essay. Obviously I have no idea...

Carb ice is nothing to do with the winter!

You should go to your flying school and ask for a refund (not kidding).

I agree.

There is a perception that airport cafe food is OK to be crap. One can see most pilots are pretty unfit so perhaps that is what leads to that kind of Wellesbourne-type "catering".

That's always been the problem in the pre-Type Rating areas of flight training. Most of it is irrelevant in one way or another, or the TK is relevant and the flying isn't, or vice versa.

I wouldn't say it should be just that.

The IR TK ought to contain stuff which is relevant to the IR procedures.

Look at the FAA IR TK. It is mostly (maybe about 80%) relevant. So why does...

What I don't get is that Sony claims it is DLNA certified, so does Buffalo, but it doesn't actually work.

What I would strongly recommend for any initial instrument qualification is to get a basic sim (FSX will do) and hammer that until you know the procedures fully.

No, because the Prof Training forum is moderated by a bunch of FTO owners who severely jump on any discussion of the bollox theory :)

Also almost no private pilot is doing the ATPL theory :)
