  1. The next time you go out and fly, try that and pay close attention. Regardless of were the ball is sitting, with the wings level and feet on the floor, watch for heading creep. My plane used to do what you are describing. The person before me had solved it by dropping the flap. Turns out, whole thing was out of rig, but the rudder was the main problem with the roll. Does plane act the same at idle and full power? Next thing to try: with the fuel balanced, accelerate the aircraft in a shallow dive and do about a 2G pull. (Don't do a loop unless you want to [emoji16]) The airplane should track straight ahead in the pull up. Next: if you're comfortable, bring the plane to a reasonably abrupt stall and see which way it wants to roll. Theoretically, it should stall straight ahead. This will also give you some clues about where to look in the rigging. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Ok. If you hold the wings level, and leave your feet on the floor, does the airplane want to flat turn? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Getting ready to do this with my, new to me, 310. It is very obvious it's out of rig. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Does it act the same with the PC on and off? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. This is spot-on Byron. With the pilot shortage, that the airline's knew was coming years ago, there's a big push now to get people in the cockpit. This means rapid training. The ab-initio programs are fine, if you want systems managers but.... There's no way you can learn all the nuances of flying much less airline operations in 200 hours. Frankly, every pilot should be scared in an airplane at least once. That scare should not come in an airliner. Automation reliance is a problem. This is nothing new with the Advent of modern avionics. There's so little emphasis put on stick and rudder skills in flight schools anymore. In the end, that's what it will take to save your ass. I used to fly with quite a number of kids as my FO that were from the, "elite," schools. They were typically very good at bookwork and understanding the numbers but usually fell down when it came to hand flying the airplane. The pilot is the last line of defense against an errant automation issue. Without solid stick and rudder skills, this part of safety really falls on its face. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Yep. I think we have 34 of them. Scrambling to cover flights affected by the grounding. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. According to Boeing, they will have a software update in 10 days or less for the Boeing 737 Max -8. Does that make it a, 737 Max-8.1? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. That's CRAZY, Tom! I can't count the number of times I cut myself working on planes and think nothing of it! Glad you are back flying again. [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Bummer. Glad no one was hurt. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Do the custom molds. Night and day for noise cancellation and comfort! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Can you get UV protected clear? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. YES!! I did the exact same thing, and it really ups the game in terms of comfort and noise cancellation! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  14. Why don't you guys ever have an impromptu fly-in in the midwest? Hmmmmm??? I see, you don't like us....
  15. That is a genius idea! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
