We will start the class with the quiz Aerodynamics 1.
For review, and to find the answers to the quiz, look at Theory of Flight: Aerodynamics. All the slides are there, and you can look ahead at what we will cover on Tuesday. There is text on some of the difficult subjects like The Drag Curve, and Angle of Attack and Load Factor.
See you Tuesday!
The weather at St. Hubert (CYHU), elevation 90 feet MSL (above Mean Sea Level) is:
- METAR CYHU 172200Z AUTO 02006KT 5SM -RA OVC014 13/10 A2993
- Which, translated, means:
- Weather at St. Hubert on the 17th of the month at 2200Z
- Automatic Report
- Wind from 020° (True) at 6 Knots
- Visibility 5 Statute miles in light rain
- Sky overcast at 1400 feet AGL (Above Ground Level)
- Temperature 13, Dew Point 10
- Altimeter Setting 29.93 in.hg. (inches of mercury)
- Is it legal for you, a licensed Private Pilot, to fly VFR (Visual Flight Rules) in the St. Hubert Control Zone (Class B Airspace)?
- If you did circuits at St. Hubert, at what altitude would you have to fly?
To answer these questions, use your CARS bookmark and the Index Page to find Division VI — Visual Flight Rules.
We’ll discuss the answers in class on Tuesday, and then begin Aerodynamics, Theory of Flight.
See you then!
Preparation for class is to continue from where we left off (X means runway is closed) to How VASI’s work
. The slides and explanation are available in Air Law
. Just 2 subjects are covered:
- the Wind Sock, and
- VASI and PAPI
Have a look at them and bring your questions to class.
Then we’ll review the Quiz Air Law 1, but quickly, because there is a lot more to cover before the end of class. But don’t worry, because the link above covers the entire Air Law section.
If you have time, read ahead. Then you’ll be able to ask more questions!
See you Tuesday,
For Tuesday’s class the homework is to do question 6 in the quiz Airframes, Engines, and Systems 2.
You will see why: we will start Air Law in this class, and you will have practice navigating the CARS website.
We will finish the quiz in class. If you want to get ahead of the game, Google “detonation and pre-ignition”.
See you Tuesday!
