give them the instruments

When visual pilots fly into cloud, there is only one instinct they can trust to give them accurate information: the one in their gut that thinks “Oh, hell! What have I done?” The immediate reaction is to want to go back to when they made a decision to press on into marginal weather and this time do something different, perhaps something smarter. It is good to remember that the gods of aviation don’t hand out do-overs; they want you to make the right decision the first time around. Yes, I do contend that sometime during the flight it’s likely the pilot decided to continue flying into conditions that they weren’t trained to deal with. In my admittedly limited experience, it comes down to a lack of preparation or a lack of…

editor’s pick

Training in Trouble Steve, Your article about Glen [Buckley – Australian Flying September-October 2019] is excellent. My Cobden Aero Club has written to our local MP Dan Tehan asking for a deputation in order to address the many ills of GA. Our Club has little hope of being sustained due to the many unnecessary impositions, but particularly due to the near impossibility of attracting an instructor. Your article I will use to illustrate the problem. The extraordinary fact is that none of the massive expense, effort and time consuming processes of CASA’s “600 dot-point” mega paperwar is necessary at all. Our own proven safe and effective flying training schools of yesteryear are proof enough. Even clearer is the successful USA model of today where some 70% of flying training is conducted by independent…

Jim hits out Greetings, Hitch. Kreisha Ballantyne, in her discussion on instructors in your September-October issue, describes two instructors whose behaviour is a disgrace their profession. Here’s what she said under the heading “Abuse of power”. On my fifth flying lesson my instructor made me so afraid of stalling, I didn’t fly again for two years. She then tells of another instructor who, when flying with her friend Tex, applied full power, pulled the nose up and slammed in full right rudder, throwing the C150 on its back. When he saw the look of terror on Tex’s face he repeated the manoeuvre. Tex almost gave up flying on the spot. Fortunately he stuck it out and later became an instructor himself. He said that he never wanted to see that look on his…

hall tops air race career with world crown

Matt Hall’s Red Bull Air Race (RBAR) career clock was at two minutes to midnight when he strapped himself into his MXS-R racer for what would be his last ever run. After eight seasons his ambition to be RBAR world champion was still unfulfilled. Second three times; third once. Never had he finished in first place, and with the RBAR series winding up permanently, it was now or never. Last September, alongside the beach at Chiba in Japan, Matt Hall’s name was finally added to the annals of air race history as the last World Champion. It would be a stretch to say that his last run to defeat local hero Yoshi Muroya was done at break-neck speed, racing against the clock in a dash for glory. In fact, it was…
