Neat video. It's actually a lot less crazy than it seems, though. That looks like a Zivko Edge 540, which has a stall speed of 59 miles per hour (less than highway speed). He was probably going through that tunnel at 70-100 mph, a speed range you'd regularly encounter in a car on highways. Granted, cars only move in 2D on the road surface, but as long as you can maintain level flight, going through a straight tunnel like that would probably be pretty straightforward.

It's complicated here, civil aviation is very expensive to get the license and you'll never do anything more than basic air taxi and comercial flights. If you want to do the cool stuff, it's military or nothing. Also, the military here pays way above the average income.

>>4730553
Brazil, I'm a little taller than 5'2 and the minimum requirement is 5'5, along with many other health requirements, for example, if you use glasses of any kind you're already out, they only want the 1% among the few who already made inside the Air Force Academy.
>>
>>
>>4730568
>you'll never do anything more than basic air taxi and commercial flights
I don't get it, isn't this why most people learn how to fly? Or do you think you'll be able reenact Ace Combat stages when you join the Brazilian military out of all places? Because you probably won't, it's far more likely that you'll first have to spend years sweeping floors and licking the boots of a corrupt leadership while swarthy favelados laugh at you. I have a cousin who served, he's basically a loser who joined the Air Force against the will of his father so he could run away from him and definitely not one of the 1%.
>Also, the military here pays way above the average income.
Most jobs in the public sector do, that's part of the problem.
>>
>>4730582
Yeah, you don't know how things work, as usual. There's enlistment, where you'll never get close to a plane and get canned after 8 years, and there's career, you can try EeAr and become a Sargent and do things like maintenance and maybe fly as support, and there's the AFA, where you gonna be an Officer and in fact fly the fucking thing. Inside AFA, after all the bullshit, there's an internal selection for Flying Officers, with more absurd requirements, if you pass, you can learn to fly a plane, if you fail, get bent, you'll never fly (that's where a lot of people quit).

On the topic of daily activities, the only way to pilot jets is for the military, also, rescue missions, patrols, supply runs, all the fun stuff you'll never see as a civilian, who at most fly from A to B to take some rich guys to a reunion. Other option is going military Police/Fireman and trying to become a pilot there, or go Federal Police if you want, I don't mind the risk, but helicopters are not my first choice.

>On 11 June 1991, a miswired flight control system led to two minor injuries when the left nacelle struck the ground while the aircraft was hovering 15 feet (4.6 m) in the air, causing it to bounce and catch fire at the New Castle County Airport in Delaware.[1][5][6] The pilot, Grady Wilson, suspected that he may have accidentally set the throttle lever the opposite direction to that intended, exacerbating the crash if not causing it.

Flew on it a few times. The food was fine, as good as any 1st class service on other aircraft. The wine and digestif list was excellent. I had a great 1er Cru Burgundy with my food followed by some XO Cognac. The seating is 2 + 2 but with good legroom. No video IFE, but 6 channels of audio. Surprisingly on channel 6 they had Dark Side of the Moon on a loop. So with a few glasses of Burgundy inside me, a glass of XO in hand, fantastic views of the earth's curvature through the windows, and listenting to Pink Floyd, I sat back and chilled in a way I've never experienced on other flights.

>>4733596
A friend of mine was here. He said he felt basically the same thing - it was aimed at where he was at first before pulling further
Something else he mentioned is that as the plane pulls up, it pulls so many Gs the engine actually gets starved of fuel. When that happens the prop goes to low pitch as it tries maintaining rated RPM. As it comes back down the engine catches again, and it massively oversped since the governor/prop takes a few seconds to move back to high pitch and bring the RPM back down. He said that sound is still ingrained in him to this very day, and was unearthly in person

Quick rundown,

The v22 is fly by wire, and during this test flight the sensitivity was connected backwards so small stick movements translated to large control movements and vise versa. That is why the pilot appears drunk.

When he tried to put it down, the collective in the osprey is opposite of a helicopter, meaning to dump power, you pull up. The pilot was a heli guy and instinctively dumped power (pushing forward) but in the Osprey it picked him back up into the crazy flight regime and they struck.

Read "The Dream Machine" it covers all of the high profile accidents and the whole development of the V-22. It real boring at times but it gets real deep into the little things.

/med/ here. Most memories and traumatic events are processed with emotion and your amygdala will dictate how powerful its "remembered". Even giving people beta blockers hours after a traumatic event which fixes your heart rate below a certain amount will make your heart not react to the stress and you will overall feel less stressful and your body won't auto program the memory as a dangerous situation to relive for future survival and avoidance. Saying " stay calm" is the best you can do. Also I hear women there, they scream at every possible moment and make everything worse.

If I remember correctly there was a failure in the elevator that caused a rapid climb. I think a linkage actually broke. The racers are already pulling heavy G on the course normally, the rapid climb increased the G load, caused G-LOC and the pilot never recovered.

There was another G-LOC crash this year. I wonder if the FAA is going to mandate G-suits for racers. Hope they don't shut it down completely.

Many such cases. A lot of these Asian pilots literally just memorize answers to get their license and then when they're in an actual emergency they are completely incompetent and unabel to think on their feet. Never fly on an airline that isn't from either a white majority country or maybe Japan

Here is the crash. There is fuck all for footage of it. Seems no one was doing a direct recording of the live stream, we only got shaky tv screen footage or news reports.
The Pilot was Aaron Hogue flying his L-29 Super Delphine.
Appears to be G-LOC from the drastic course correction. He was going to cut on the inside of a pylon and corrected out wide, likely to avoid a time penalty. Then when attempting to correct back on coarse, it seems he pulled enough Gs to blackout.
I guess there are worse ways to go. One moment flying, the next taking the long sleep.

The NK12 is a fairly simple axial-flow turboprop engine, except for the contra-rotating coaxial propeller configuration bolted on the front. This is accomplished using a large epicyclic gearbox, with one input and two outputs and governed to the same RPM in flight. The principle is solid, in that it largely reduces the effects of torque and recovers the wasted energy by eliminating the tangential flow from the front propeller. It also yields a high propulsive efficiency, generating a significant amount of thrust compared to the fuel burn. It comes at a cost of additional weight and a highly stressed gearbox, and the current design uses relatively inefficient blades due to their tip speed during normal operation.

I use that video all the time when I introduce one engine inoperative principles of flight. Great example of why CPDIVE is imperative. >>4740343
Yeah it turns out the ATR doesn't perform very well as a glider. Normally I would point to a Vmc roll (pic related) but that would imply an engine was still running.
>>
>>4746659
Can confirm. Asian pilots training in Canada are famous for this bug type of stuff with an inability to aviate. It gets so bad that some of the airlines and smaller charter carriers around here are issued guidelines to fly around airspace populated by some of the major "Asian oriented" flight schools. These same guidelines are not issued for schools populated mostly by "locals". Also you cant understand 80% of chingchongs on the radio.

Interesting, I'd never considered the fact that the engine would go from full load to dead stop and cooking the oil in turbo lines. Some people do that shit with coolant in car burnouts but usually a radiator exploding. Can't just hop out of a burning plane so much.

that's a crowd of white people.

Everyone talks about racial IQ differences but few people talk about general dispositional differences. Staying calm is kind of a white (and asian) racial characteristic. You know how you read about all those battles where a few hundred whites defeat thousands of non-whites (see for example the Battle of Montgisard or the Battle of Rorke's Drift)? The main reason shit like that happens is that white people are more difficult to route. They are better able to remain calm.

Laser lights and aerial pyrotechnics? Not much at all. Essentially it is an application with a description of what you're going to do and safety procedures.

Now if you wanted to pull some of the red bull shit where they're trying to hotseat two 172's in flight, make the application, the FAA says no, so you fucking do it anyway and one of the unmanned cessnas pulls out of the dive you put it in, because that's what 172's do: to recover from anything just let Jesus take the wheel and magically the plane will level off, and it flies until it crashes, yeah the FAA might have something to say to you about that...

What is this type of cope called?

>>4747346
Could be a weight reduction thing. Not sure how the super props work it, maybe some kind of ram air? I am honestly not sure how the G-suits worked in P-51s. But the jets would need a bleed air system to power the suits. Maybe the water powered systems like the Redbull races? I can see that being likely.
With the P-51 crash a few years ago, I am not really sure a G-suit would have made a difference. There was a lot of instantaneous G when that elevator piece broke, pilot was out before he even knew what was happening.
This last crash was entirely pilot error and could have been avoided had Hogue kept his ego in check. But unfortunately his mistake will reverberate becausce FAA regs are written in blood.

A friend of mine who was also there talked to a retired air force guy who also saw it, and he said it looked "like classic G-LOC." The rapid onset pulling back in is what did it.
I was there too. It's pretty different seeing something like that in person. Everyone I was there with who hadn't seen something like that before is still pretty fucked up. I didn't know him but knew someone who did
