Norm, Barrie, Dan,
Fulvio, Joseph, Jim,
Tony and Francois,
It was a pleasure to meet you all today for the first IFR Seminar: Airspace.
I just did my homework. Michael was right:
COMM FAILURE PROCEDURES are set out in the Canada Flight Supplement, page Emergency F 10 (near the back of the volume).
They can also be found in the AIM at RAC 6.3.2 (page 257 in the current edition).
I welcome your feedback. And as we discussed, if you send me your email I will make you an author on the site so you can post directly. I’ll send you a temporary password which you can change when you want. If you are new to WordPress, password change is here. To post, look at the WordPress Codex here.
See you next week,
A new website?
I am about to start teaching flying again, and I recognize what a co-operative venture that is. Any teaching involves learning, and vice-versa. The classroom and the cockpit are venues where minds, styles, and experiences come together for the benefit of all.
From a practical point of view, there is a lot of material to be exchanged, modified, and discussed.
I have 19,000 hours of flying and 3500 hours of instruction. Many brave pilots who taught me have retired. Some have already passed on, taking their experience with them. The apprenticeship system that I enjoyed is in retreat. I am concerned that a lot of knowledge essential to aviation safety may get lost.
A WordPress site can accept content from any number of users. The plan is to invite students to be Authors on the site, so they can post blogs on the aviation subjects – licences or ratings – they are working on or have completed.
Further on, we can incorporate the plug-in BuddyPress so the site becomes a specialized social network, allowing sub-groups, discussion, and private messages, à la FaceBook.
Even further out, perhaps a Wiki capability could be added, so that co-operatively the group could build and maintain a library of aviation-related knowledge.
I invite your comments.
