No offense meant for/to those of us who remember calling our "Honorable Discharge from the Military a "Ruptured Duck" I think the name for this show should be "The Ruptured Duck".So is anxiously waiting for Raptors next video a lot like watching the Daytona NASCAR race waiting for the next “big one”?
Nice explanation of overfilling it and the oil warning which triggers on a slightly below maximum levelThe increasingly over-sensitive responses may suggest low confidence being compensated for?
Hey it’s a VW. No need to remove the bulb. Just put electrical tape over it. From my VW Golf days the check engine light was what kept you company on those long night drives.Having watched PM fit the prop with a pipe wrench, drill holes on a pillar drill holding the pieces in his bare hands, and other 'poor' engineering practices, I'm surprised he simply hasn't taken the bulb out of the oil light panel, job done, let's go flying. .
I guess it's also possible that the 'new' motor could be totally worn out, and so not fit for purpose ?????
Actually the third longest flight of this aircraft this year. Longest was 51 minutes, next 28, then two 24s, 23, etc etc. According to FR24, total flight time on the airframe is currently 10 hours 40 minutes over 25 flights, for an average of 25 minutes per flight.Seems short
and again when he reaches the highest altitude he starts descending around 900 ft/min till the landing , and again land in opposite direction from which he started. Beside this his climb rate is just above 400 ft/min with some pikes of 20-30 seconds to 750 ft/min but most time his climb rate is between 300 and 400 ft/min.Just for academic purposes, does anyone have a list of the days when his flight ended with an urgent request to return and land? First flight, the day the engine blew up, this low oil pressure light... any others I'm missing? I'm not just thinking of the days he formally declared an emergency, but any day he was forced to land _immediately_ by a mechanical or controllability issue.
Here's what I have so far:

Yup. Every time he has these high descent rates and lands on the opposite or crossing runway, he must be having a concern and wants to get down ASAP.and again when he reaches the highest altitude he starts descending around 900 ft/min till the landing , and again land in opposite direction from which he started. Beside this his climb rate is just above 400 ft/min with some pikes of 20-30 seconds to 750 ft/min but most time his climb rate is between 300 and 400 ft/min.
I am pretty sure if you called pan pan a controller would just treat you as an emergency or even declare you one. I have had emergencies declared for me over pretty trivial things like loosing an alternator.Pan Pan is a step below Mayday. But I don't know if pilots and controllers use it much.
