Summary
125 Max discusses the NTSB preliminary report on the B-17 crash. And we talk about propeller safety and a number of accidents in which people were killed or dismembered by a propeller. Propeller accidents are more common than you might think, and many happen at night when a spinning prop is almost impossible to see. NEVER let anyone in or out of a plane while the engine is still running.

56 ATC Visual Separation for Private Pilots Explained, NTSB Report on NYC Helicopter Accident + GA News


Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you’re thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance.

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Max talks in detail about visual separation, the responsibility pilots assume when they agree to maintain visual separation, and methods they can use for avoiding other aircraft. The NTSB preliminary report reveals more on that NYC helicopter crash that killed five passengers. A listener asks about when to switch from ground to tower at a towered airport, another listener asks about simulating an AHRS failure in a Garmin G1000 equipped aircraft, and another listener ask what exactly controllers mean when they say to enter on a 2-mile base.
