Wonderful video, have seen that and a few more like it over the last six or so decades of terrifying puffy wuffies in my aeroplanes...
I know why you posted the Link and what a great idea.
It does not take long for a licenced non instrument rated aviator to get themselves into a heap of trouble by not following the basics and what was drummed into them by their flying instructors.
(1) Check the weather
(2) Check the weather again...
(3) Stay away from puffy wuffies
With three log books full of memories I have my share of Instrument Time, Night Flying and Pure Boredom.
I preached Training and Education, which, if you do both wisely most aviators will live long enough to get Experience...
I used to tell students:You are better off down here
Wishing you were up there
Than up there
Wishing you were down here
My advice to Private Pilots is get yourself an Instrument Rating and five (5) or more hours of aerobatics with an instructor, it is not money wasted.
Now, having typed all of the above Paul, I did enjoy flying in instrument conditions.
(1) Listening to the ice fly off the two or four props and
hitting the side of the aircraft...
(2) Watching the Vertical Speed Indicator go up and down
like a yo-yo
(3) Feeling the pressure on the control yoke as I guided
my trusty steed on our course
(4) Watching the snow/ice build up on the windscreen until
you can't see out
(5) Watching the lightning along the route and the rain,
yes the rain could sound at times like a hundred
(6) Probably one of the most important, observing your
new First Officer become a student again...
(7 Yes I do miss talking with those GCA (Ground Control
Approach) Controllers...gosh it was alway me that
bought the beer I think...
Yes some fond memories Paul...
Again Paul, wonderful Link which you could have put in the Real Aviation Forum also I think.
Cheers...Doug...no the other Doug...
