  1. 4aplat added a post in a topic Todays lesson on Density Altitude   



    It's not only a problem of density altitude

    after 800 m, the aircraft just take off but it was a pain in the ass and the pilot doesn't wonder why !

    800 m after, at the end of the track (you can see it on the right, with a lot of water on it) it can't take altitude, and the pilot still don't wonder why

    3 km later, still no altitude and still no question in the pilot's mind

    I don't know what is a "commercial pilot" but I guess it is a professional pilot

    With all the grass between the track and the forest the best solution was to land in a field

    not in the forest !!!


    a lot of chance

    transponder
    Hi all

    I will install a second hand Becker atc2000 a/c in my avid

    There's no way to add it on the dashboard and the onliest location I can use is between the foot pilot / passenger (I will have to find a new location for the radio)




    is there anyone with such an experience ?

    regards

    MicheL
