  • Cleetus, let me tell you, you’re going so far in the right direction. I myself, am a professional diesel mechanic. BUT, i also claim to be a amateur av geek. I’m telling you, keep up with Sam Chui, Dj Avaition, Simple Flying, Aviation international news. You’ll love “Ice Pilots” on Amazon prime.

  • The most counter-intuitive part of landing is controlling your airspeed using pitch not power.

  • I definitely would Not classify it as his first flying lesson, more so it was his first Demo-flight/ introduction to flying. The young man seems to be an ambitious and decent guy no doubt, however, the skill set he may have from using flight simulators / gaming certainly does not translate to actual flying abilities & knowledge etc.

  • Your buddy was watching your hands the whole time. I bet he wanted to slap them every time you kept steering like you were in a car. Good shit though man. Hope you stick with flying. It is addictive and TRULY liberating. I thought a motorcycle was freedom, until I flew my first dual prop solo.

  • I've had a similar experience. I'm about to start training for my PPL but about 2 years ago, my bud invited me to go flying with him. When we arrived at rhe plane, he jumped into the copilot seat and told me to hop in, I was "driving" I was a bit nervous but he was confident that I could handle it. He did give me some direction though and everything went pretty well.

  • Not proud to admit?? Bro you did so much better than I thought you would. It's definitely more challenging than one would think, exactly because what you mentioned... many controls to manage and it happens quite fast. Well done man! You gonna make more flying videos?

  • I use to be a road instructor at a truck driving school and even guys learning to drive big trucks oversteer. It take a firm but light touch. I have over 20k hours in flight simulators and was able to takeoff and land without input from the instructor on a discovery flight. It was actually easier in real life than on the Simulator. I could feel the plane. Reminded me of car simulators and how it is harder to drive on a sim than real life.

  • Years ago I took an intro flight lesson and it was a lot like this. The instructor did not put his hands on the controls and he talked me through the take off, flight, and landing. He told me as long as I was doing it right he would let me do the whole thing! It was pretty cool!

    • Nahiyan Haq absolutely. I also think there was a bit of impulsivity demonstrated as well. He seemed to be more concerned with “just doing it” rather than listening to his CFI and doing it safely.

      David RemediosDavid Remedios4 månader sedan
    • David Remedios hahaha this was my exact though as I watched the video. In CFI ground school, this is known as macho. You need to teach a student like this by intensity and effect, and have a heart to hear conversation about his behaviour. I guess I remember something from that CFI rating 🤣✈️👨🏽‍✈️

    James WardJames Ward4 månader sedan
  • Sorry... no way! I’ve been flying my whole life (ATP, fly professionally). In the hands of a competent pilot it appears as if the airplane lands itself! Nothing could be farther from the truth! A successful landing is difficult enough that it must be taught and practiced many times with the help of a CFI fixing things enough to keep you from killing yourself while you learn what not to do. If completely left to yourself- as in, no one else in the airplane- there’s a 90% chance the best case scenario is a badly damaged airplane and the worst case scenario is you are going to learn what a stall/spin accident is, which would be the last act completed in your lifetime.

    Ridge HouseRidge House4 månader sedan
  • His issue is...he was over thinking the aircraft too much. In turn being way too agressive with controls. I was taught for both landing and take-off to use no more then 15 degree's of flaps though. Maybe the newer models don't need that much any more. All he had to do was guide the plane where he wanted it to go. Small movements. No jerking the yoke around.

I'm no pilot, but most people can barley handle a car when it stalls...panic sets in....let alone trying to figure things out while your at the controls of an aircraft and the ground is rapidly approaching...lol

  • Good to hear your humility to admit that RG needed to help you. I could research all the applicable info like max rate of accent/decent etc and still crash. When doing RC Airplanes, the hardest thing was learning to use the rudder rather than the ailerons when landing especially. You cannot do it without a teacher unless your life depended on it of course.

  • A 172 "is kinda a big unit". No... It's the Ford Escort of aircraft. Solid, reliable, easy to handle. Big, though? No. He thinks he can fly with no help, but before he's even off the ground, he has to ask where the flaps are. That's called help. "Do you have those on full when you takeoff and land?" More help. "RG was walking me through landing process, which was much more helpful than vids I have seen lol." Sorry? RG was full of what, again? Help, did you say? But let's be real. The entire purpose of the video can be summed up in two words. Click. Bait. It looked like a good first lesson. What's wrong with calling it that? Dude: I still think I could have landed it myself first try. RG: No. I'll give him props for the honest assessment in the voice-over of how much he overestimated the ease of flying. Good on him for that. But if he decides to take up flying, he'll need to learn some realistic self assessment or he'll get killed. "Hey, can spinning a Cessna really be any different than spinning an RC Extra 300?"
