Flying in the Rain

neutr1n02001's picture

November 24,

According to the weather report, it was OK to fly. 8000 feet overcast at home base. 3000 scattered, 5000 feet overcast at Langley. 10000 feet overcast at Abbotsford. The wind was light at 6 knots. Although it rained.

I took off and climbed to usual altitude at 2300 feet. The wind at this altitude seemed to be way more stronger than 6 knots. It was also very very turbulent! The poor little plane was thrown left and right, up and down. I felt like I was riding a wild bull in a cowboy competition! Layers of dark gray clouds were only a few hundred feet above. It was unreal! I was trying to predict which direction the plane was going to be hit next by the turbulence. The success rate was not good. The scary thing is I wasn't scared. Turbulence is bad for the plane! I should be scared!

Private Pilot License Written Exam

I took my first practice exam at school about two weeks ago. According to school policy, I have to score more than 80% to get their letter of recommendation for the real Transport Canada PPL exam. To me, this is not fair. The passing score required for the real exam is only 60%!

I read the text book "From the Ground Up" from the first page to the last page. I did the 200 sample exam questions in the book. I did the sample exam issued by Transport Canada. I did all six practice exams from the online ground school. I was confident I could pass 80% in the school practice exam. The dispatch marked the paper and told me, "You got 79%." "WHAT?!" I couldn't believe my ears! "This can't be right! You sure it's 79%? It must be 80%! You missed one! Please check it again!" I was tired of studying this stuff day after day. I wanted to get it done as early as possible so I could spend my time on my other interests! So the dispatch checked the answer key again. "Hmm. I did miss one!" I was happy! "I told you so! I got 80% after all!" "No! It is actually 78%." SHIT!

High Resource Usage

"Your account is utilizing excessive resources, causing a significant degradation of services on the server. It is now moved to a stabilization server. This is a transitional server only and is not intended to be a permanent placement. Please make a decision on how you would like to proceed within the next 2 weeks." My ISP provider has been giving me headache these days. They complained this site has consumed too much bandwidth and resources. I made some configuration changes to block some bots/web crawlers and set the crawl delay 6 times longer for the rest of the bots. Let's see if this helps. If not, I may have to move it to a virtual private server or cloud.

Steep Turns

Another solo to Glen Valley, the practice area. I took off around 11am. A beautiful day, deep blue sky with no cloud. I followed the standard departure procedure, climbed to 1900 feet, flew to Nikel. Then Climbed to 2200 feet, headed towards Cloverdale, the race track. From the race track, I flew east towards Glen Valley. I tried rolling the wings without changing the heading. It worked well. I learned this maneuver from my instructor at the very beginning stage of the training, about eight or nine months ago. Haven't practiced since. It's good I still remembered!

Gold And Silver – Is the Golden Rule Broken?

He who owns the gold rules.

That has been the clichéd “wisdom” for some time. However it appears Russia has become the Rodney Dangerfield of the Golden Rule, for it certainly is not getting any respect. To the contrary, the Golden Rule has become subservient to Military Rule, the last remaining leg upon which the US rests in its ongoing inability to retain respect internationally.

As formidable as US military might is, it is not always effective in execution, and to date, it has only been [in]effective against those nations that have no military might, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan. Syria is still a work in process, but the only reason why Syria has not been destroyed, like the other countries, is because Russia, Putin, stepped in to expose the Obomb-em administration and false flag “insurgent” gassing of citizens.

What continues to be an equal deterrent like military might is the Rothschild-established fiat monetary system that has engulfed and economically eviscerated the Western world. One exception would be Germany, but Merkel has been allowing her central bankers hold sway, via US sanctions against Russia, and harming Germany’s economy and ability to otherwise survive the economic chaos in the rest of the EU.
