V-22 Osprey and the similar AW-609 are the hybrid of airplane and helicopter, there are also other examples but I would not consider Gyrocopters since they are another kind of aircraft working in a different way. Instead tilt rotors are not only an hybrid of the two but are also both (in horizontal flight it […]
If I’m reading your question correctly you seem to think that working as an airline pilot would in some way fulfill some part of your military commitment, that you could be an airline pilot instead of an Air Force pilot. No, but some of your obligation could be serving in the reserves, where you train […]
Do you, at least, know what a commercial pilot is…? Commercial pilots do not necessarily fly an airliner from New York to London – Being a commercial pilot simply means. a pilot who is paid to operate an aircraft cmmercially – I bet you really meant to ask “what is the life of an airline […]
How do they fill those fire fighting 747 airplanes ? Those planes do land to be filled , don t they ?
The biggest fire extinguisher…! 20,000 US Gallons (75,000 liters) capacity water or fire retardant – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZHk6uZV…
Under Zoology I assume you mean the air shows put on by birds!! I believe there is a bridge in Austin Texas where every night tens of thousands of bat fly under and past it and many watch so that would be a great “air show”. In Florida I expect there are great flamingo air […]
Can a student pilot be trained in a twin engine for a private pilot certificate, if there’s no single engine plane around?
Legally, yes. He will end up with a “multi engine land” rating on his pilot certificate, and won’t be allowed to fly a single engine plane until he adds a single engine rating. Practically, it would be difficult to find an instructor willing to teach a new student in a multi engine airplane, and near […]
Nope, it turns into a glider 🙂 An airplane doesn’t fall out of the sky if the engines quit, IF the pilot is doing his/her job. It will still fly just fine if the pilot puts the nose down to maintain adequate flying speed. However, unlike a real glider that can take advantage of rising […]
There’s no way I can answer that, since I don’t know how well or how fast you “absorb” information. Only you and your flight instructor know that. However, at a rate of one lesson or practice solo per week (once your CFI endorses your logbook for solos), I think it would take most people a […]
I’m want to go for pilot in college but I’m not going to the associate I’m just getting the certificates?
If you live In the USA you will find it difficult to work your way up to a major airline without a 4-year college degree. I’m not saying that it’s impossible but you’ll be less competitive for a job since 98% of the applicants hired have one. Even at the regional airlines a degree is […]
(1) Yes, they ARE effective at reducing radio interference despite what the other (uninformed) people have said. (2) Static wicks are generally only used on faster aircraft and those designed to fly in IFR conditions. They are generally not found on light, general aviation aircraft flown in VFR conditions such as trainers used at flight […]
