I would imagine he has plenty of experience which makes it all the more surprising he would say something that ridiculous.

I assure you, it's one thing to go inadvertent by yourself when it's the real deal and quite another to be in training, expecting it and having an instructor sitting right next to you.

True, but if things ever get back to normal, plenty of places will hire a 700 hour CFI. Not that much more to do to obtain. I will say that without an instrument rating, your job prospects will be...

I didn't realize they were there illegally but if you're going to break the rules, break them! Couldn't they have done a rolling takeoff (40kts hard surface max?) to get some airspeed and then picked...

Seems a bit harsh but not performing a standard instrument takeoff in those conditions was beyond stupid.

Using the runway to get to V-mini and letting the autopilot do it's thing would have prevented this accident, IMO. Instead, whomever was flying got rushed, spatially disoriented, overrode the...

That's not how SVFR works here. It doesn't matter what you "report". The airspace is VFR or it isn't, decided by official weather reporting, not the pilot.

I would think the night flying restriction would be a deal breaker for most companies, even if they don't regularly fly at night. Maybe a tour operator, though.

Throttle off and igniter breaker pulled for good measure. Doesn't take long to lower the temp enough for a start. The RR's want it below 150C before fuel. Most of the time it will come down enough on...

No, not really. I did plenty of these fair rides years ago. I really could not possibly care less about the nuts and bolts of it. If you can't operate safely and make money don't do it.

That would put an L4 at gross weight. It would probably do it with a strong engine. The hard part would be the first take off, after that, no problem. An L4 is probably going to run a mil, though.

You are not going to get off the ground with 5-6 adults in an L3 with full fuel. You may be able to do it in an L4 but they are running well north of $800K.
