Re: Dipstick error leads to pilot making emergency landing

I might be over cautious here but as a matter of course I would always top my Tanks off before takeoff just in case there was any type of emergency in flight. In the 1990's we were on a commercial flight to the US when we apparently hit very strong headwinds and as a result the Pilot had to make an ...

Re: Is this a serious cause for concern?

As already posted, nothing much to add to the above but yes the points mentioned are very serious especially where young persons are present.

Re: Hazards of using dry powder extinguisher?

A decent Instructor/Trainer knows that one wrongly phrased comment can Snowball, if in doubt say now't or use the stock answer if questioned..."I'll get back to you on that" (translates to "I don't know but I'll Google it" :lol: )
