  1. Well, I am looking at a job where it is a plus to have previous glass cockpit experience. I've been flying with a 696 a lot, which I am sure is very similar in operation, yet doesn't qualify as the instrumentation it displays (VSI, ASI, TC, ALT) are all GPS-derived and not based off actual input from the aircraft.
  2. Thanks, that's what I figured. That seems like it should certainly count.
  3. What counts as glass cockpit experience (for a resume)? Fully integrated with engine instruments, I assume? Thanks!
  4. I always thought that barely ever doing any full down autos was interesting about the training environment in the US. I did my private in Germany and practiced full down autos en masse, even on grass. Then I come over here and if you're lucky you get to do one or two in your training to become a CFI. So unless you go for a CFI rating you basically never have any full down experience until you have an engine failure at some point..
  5. There are new regulations for 135, among others, concerning the pilot training/testing. "for rotorcraft pilots, procedures for aircraft handling in flat-light, whiteout, and brownout conditions, including methods for recognizing and avoiding those conditions. " I'd assume that is theoretical training/testing? I would have a hard time testing my pilots' white-out capabilities in South Carolina. 2014-03689_PI.pdf
  6. I don't think that this is universally true. For one, I am sure that there are people out there flying 135 with less than 1000 hours. Also I disagree with the statement, that you will necessarily have 100 hours 25NM XC time, when you have 1000 hours. As this might be true for some people, you could very well fly tours, for example, and get 1000 hours but not a single minute of XC flight time. (Neither XC, nor 25NM XC) That being said, I don't have any issue here personally, having more than 100 hours 25NM XC time. But I believe it is worth highligthing this fact, that seems to be little
  7. What I am doing is that, like I said I have two colums, "25+ NM XC" and "XC". Flights that I land anywhere else than my original point of departure go into "XC" Flights that I land anywhere else than my original point of departure, at least 25 NM away, go into "XC" AND into "25+ NM XC". When looking at point different from departure I do not count landing at a point that is within the airport of departure. E.G. hovering to, and landing at a hover practice spot within the airport would not go into either of my columns.
  8. Have always wondered about this too. Will you notice a fire in abnormal engine operation? Or do you have to look back at the engine to see/notice a fire? I have not encountered anybody that had this happen to them or know about it..
  9. I have a list of links with manuals and guides for (all) GPS systems, as well, as links to all the PTS's, Advisory Circulars and FAA books on my website: GPS's PTS's Books Advisory Circulars

  11. What I am wondering is this: Why does this discussion seem to say that you only have this issue flying R-22 helicopters? I've not heard of a helicopter that you simply sit in and start flying or land and it is immediatley shut-down. In my opinion this is something that would concern every pilot of every helicopter (who is not past some crazy 20000 hours and is logging time).
  12. Thanks for the replys guys (and for confirming ). As to ridethisbike: What I have been doing for a couple of years already is that I have two columns in my logbook: "25 NM+ XC" and "XC". This way I still have documentation of my "regulatory" XC time for the purpose of getting additional certifictaes and ratings.
  13. Yes, as far as I read it there is no distance requirement for the 135 XC requirements.
  14. I was wondering if anybody has some input on an interpretation question I have regarding 135.243 PIC qualifications for 135 operations I am looking at -Rotorcraft -VFR operations (I am aware that the requirements change for IFR) The regulation states that: My understanding is that, for part 135, is defined as a flight that involves a landing at a point other than the point of departure and it does not matter what the distance is (e.g. it does not have to be miniumum 25 NM). My argument is based on the cross country definition of part 61, which, in my opinion, excempts part 135 from
  15. Thanks Mike I did receive your email. I will respond as soon as possible, since I will be traveling today, it might not be until tomorrow, though. Best Regards, Bastian
