Boom-tishhh! :yay:

No, ever since the Red Bull Racing was aired, and being a pilot I came across (ooo, err) this young filly and her amazing control of her stick.

Trim an aeroplane and it'll fly itself...

:freaky:

So Hyper, who's the best pilot? Your commie or "The great Ms Wagstaff"?

...into the ground eventually unless you use an autopilot on Alt hold.

Mind you JC, you are right, during PPL training I used to come back with bulging biceps because I never used to trim the a/c in flight properly. Even worst when practising asymetric on a twin I have to use the rudder trim otherwise I'll leave the plane walking like John Wayne.

BTW, are you a helo pilot? (posting under another name?)

Patty is quite tasty too. I've only just starting to get into this aerobatics larf so I don't really know too much about it.

I don't know how they keep their breakfasts down - I tried loop the loops, stalls and spins and a bastardized attempt at a "Hi-G" yoyo and although I was never ill, I felt quite uncomfortable doing it.

This of course might have been due to the unfortunate first time an instructor showed me a spin in a Piper Warrior. He told me what to expect and what he was going to do. When he punched the rudder on the stall I didn't expect the plane to invert before spinning - I yelled out and grabbed the instructors leg.

Very embarrassing...

Similar situation to my practising autorotation. If I initiate it, I don't feel a thing. If I'm flying safety and my oppo performs the manouvre I get a feeling like I've just gone over a hump-back bridge.

Cue comment from WS...

Yep, I get the same. Oddest time was being in the back of a Warrior and being flown by another student back from Cranfield to Denham. He was getting his night rating and it was pitch black outside. What was very spooky was it was like looking out of commercial airliner with all the orange afterglow. And it felt strange being in a back of something quite similar to a biscuit tin and I felt every bit of turbulance.

What helo do you fly?

Haven't a clue what they're on about either. I think it's something to do with the rumour that helicopter pilots have big choppers.

Who cares ...I like this picture.
