  1. Hi Captain John, as far as I know you have still not detailed the mistakes made in the Humberside taxiing accident? Please enlighten us!

    • Yes Peter you are quite correct and you have reminded me that I need to publish it, thank you! I have been writing to various agencies and asking for answers but mostly they do not reply and show no interest in this incident.

      At any one time there are over a 100 articles in preparation on my blog but because I spend so much time revising and rethinking each article it can be 1-3 years before its published. Some articles are extensions of what we will use for training so I do need to be sure they are well thought out, correct and best practice.Some articles are based on new ideas that I am trialling, for instance at the moment I am thinking of changing Ex 4 Effects of Controls to Exercise 4 Effects of Controls & Attitude Flying because the early learning of attitude flying is actually more important that effects of controls! My article on ‘Commentary Flying Instruction’ has been two years in the making, so you see it takes time!

      What does tend to get published are things that are quick to prepare such as the two recent posts. I will now have a look at the Breighton post! Thank you for your interest oh and no need to call me captain, JP will do!
