    yup, statistics show it too, if you look at most of the cases where people leave smoking holes in the ground, especially at the General Aviation level, the cause was almost never bad airmanship, but rather a series of bad decisions, or just one extremely bad one. I'm a huge huge fan of scenario based training, it allows the student to spin their wheels in a controlled environment where if they make the wrong decision you can say "nope, bad idea...and here's why". As an instructor your job is to expose a student to as many situations as possible such that when they encounter them in real life, its not an entirely new scenario for them and they should be easily able to find the correct decision.

    Typical, I say this then I make a comeback! I've started or participated in 5 or 6 threads since posting this a few days ago!

    Wow, when I visited this thread again the last thing I expected to see were all those deletions. Must have been some harsh stuff in there.

    I know what you mean, I wanted nothing to do with little planes when I started school here at UND, but shortly after I started my PPL, I think I'd rather talk about smaller planes, simply because I know a lot more about them.

    Flying is a goal easier attainable than one things. Its not extraordinarily difficult really. I think the hardest part is the decision making, but common sense usually takes care of that. After you figure that out, just put time into studying and practicing and you're all set. Not quite as expensive as people tend to think either.

    That being said, if anyone around here wants to learn to fly..I know a CFI...and he'll soon be a CFII at the end of the summer
    Emu, if you want to haul your ass up to NS, I'll hire you for my completion of my PPL.

    Well, Emu. I like all small planes. Mostly because they are attainable for me. I can go out to the airport put down $100/hr and go flying. I'm picking planes each month for my "Plane of the Month".
    I get excited when I look at used planes, and I realize that I can get one for around 100K. That is something that keeps my "dream" alive, so to speak.

    Hey Joe !

    It sure is. I like posting here, I have become rather inactive in other forums and this is the only forum I regularly post at now. The good community we have here is what's attracting me back. (Although stuff like the deleted ones in this thread may be a bugger sometimes) We can live with that !

    Btw. Disregard my previous post at the point where I said its a random discussion board. Well I regret I said that. Because Jp.net forums aint random now.

    Wow, deletion nation here on this thread. Chris I don't know you, but I hope you continue to enjoy your time here. I hope you pop in once and awhile to say hello.

    And to Emu the Bird Man. I would love to chin wag about single engine, and small craft any day with you. As you stated, I'm also more of an flying fan than an airliners fan as well.

    ^And what about the people that can't be classified . Personally, I'm a silent geek from the last row that cracks jokes once in a while, so I can't be classified .

    With regards to the "A forum full of kids" comments, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    It's like a year 9 or 10 classroom, you've got your class geeks, the respected "Del-Boys" who crack a good joke, have a laugh and are highly respected, you've got the intelligent people or swats (I don't mean that in a bad way) who know their stuff and finally you've got the quiet ones who just sit in the corner (this was me at school but I'd like to think I'm different on here!)

    It all adds to the fun.

    Its not actually the press releases that I find useful here. There can often be too many of them, but nothing I'm complaining about.

    Its more like the info's I get from jp-members from Dale, Alain, Colin, Greg Wilson, Pedro and many more respected users. They have either been helpful with their knowledge about this aircraft and that aircraft. Many from the crew have been very helpful with their expertise regarding photo-editing. So no, I totally disagree with you here. We may have a few kids here, but you can be damned and sure we treat each other like adults here. So far I havent had any problems here. Nothing I would bitch about as this is just a random discussion-board.
