I can tell you that cows are definitely smarter than they look and its time to try phenq can turn on you at any moment when your back is turned so be careful.

Cows are definitely dangerous than they look. A few years back I was walking by an innocent looking cow when she decided to lift me up with her horns and nd throw me away. I survived with a broken bone. Since then, I'm really afraid of the cows.

Current Strip / Double checkride
« Last post by Baradium on December 25, 2017, 05:10:39 PM »
It's always one of those events that adds just a little more stress to your checkride when your watcher is being watched!   

I got a new type rating last week and had an FAA observer.  We found out afterwards that the APD giving us our ride was actually getting HIS initial checkride to be an APD.   So the FAA observer really was giving us the checkride, just with an intermediary.   Fortunately we all passed and the new APD complimented on us doing so well that it took stress off of him.   The other pilot had been flying for 30 years+ and this was the first time he'd gotten a temporary certificate where the examiner listed didn't put down an expiration date, since the FAA inspector's authorization doesn't expire.

Of course weather isn't an issue with a level D simulator, so it doesn't really matter what it's like outside.   I can imagine that they tend to observe more day time slots than the ones with 4am shows though!

After just a bit more digging, I think they're actually called ground trainers. Does anyone have any more insight? I haven't seen one in nearly two decades.

Non visual simulators still exist.    In fact, even in the airline world the big procedures trainers many times can be "flown."     

In the GA world, the most ubiquitous was  the Frasca 142   

Some of the original simulators were basically a box (sometimes with stubby little wings for effect) and a panel and instruments with a hatch that would be closed and those actually had motion.

General Discussion / Old-School Simulators

I just found myself thinking about FAA certified simulators. I heard about it from the Flite-Tech audio CDs, since my wife has them.

As I recall, old-school simulators did not necessarily have a screen attached. In fact, I remember seeing some that were basically a panel with instruments and a table with an apparatus that you can attach a felt-tip pen to so that it can track your course over an actual sectional, or a glass set over your chart.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I suddenly became curious about these things. Do they still exist in this world of lots of high-fallutin' and fancy simulator setups?
