I'm in school for the Pilatus right now, so this video yesterday, thought it was cool:
I want that guy's job. How do you get it?
So Caneman is not the only person to utilize gloves?
^every pilot should have at least one pair of those! I wear them in the winter to keep my hands warm, and in the summer to keep my grip from slipping. They go right along with a giant watch and Aviators.
Yeah if you don't have at least one pair of nomex gloves in your Sporty's brand tool bag, you're not a real pilot. Next you'll tell me you don't carry an E6B.
Dumb question... but is he inducing the spins or is it just that violent?
I prefer GORE-TEX. Makes it look like you have bear claws for hands! When they get dirty, they look like welding gloves.
Apparently it's that er "abrupt". We certainly don't practice it, so that's just a rumor, but as he is doing it for certification, I can't imagine there's anything in it for him to make it more dramatic.
After reading my post I knew I'd get a response like yours. You are right there isn't any spin.
Yeah, no, the stall causes the airplane to roll inverted and dive so while there is no spin, it is a bit aggressive.
Here's some scary spin footage...
Too funny, I stumbled across that first video as well, crazy snap left.
Where you getting learned on the Pilatus?
Nice! Have a few good friends from PlaneSense complete their initial there, they enjoyed it, and love flying the plane even more.
Always a cool video to watch. Did they show you the overtemp/compressor stall video while using the MOR? That's a good one too.
Looks like a lot of fun.
