VSI showing deviations while altitude is rock solid

Avatar2 Img 0462 G ahau sml Tb20 9

I noticed this yesterday. Both altimeters didn’t move even a fraction of a mm, but the VSI was showing +20 to -20fpm. The GPS altitude varied a little too, by a few feet, but it does that anyway.

Is there a lot of damping on an altimeter?

Water survival training. Does it Make sense?

I came across a website of a training organization, which offers a water Survival training for a reasonable price.

I fly to the UK once in a while and it would be a comforting idea to know what to do when you have to ditch.

Would it make sense to do such a training? Has anyone done such a training? Was it worth while?

Part-NCO summarized

Pilot 02 Tb20 9 Cit mus flt18 hires Hbdwcavtar Ich3

Although bookworm hasn’t yet posted the link on this forum, here it comes.

Part-NCO will go into effect and become law in a little more than 24 hours in most of Europe.

It’s a first class summary of Part-NCO and its effects for most private pilots in Europe. (It is primarily written to the UK pilot, making comparisons with the UK ANO, but most of it is still just as relevant for the “European” private pilot). Mandatory reading I would say (at least for those whose don’t want to wade through Part-NCO itself, i.e. probably 90% of private pilots..,).

Thanks a lot! Every single sentence in this review is well chosen and comprehensible.

One note: there is a clear tendency in Part-NCO over previous regulations in that it contains many “soft” wordings. This is both good and bad. Here and there, it allows more flexibility for the pilot/operator and that can be good. It however also requires much much judgement by the pilot. Also, in the future, when somebody asks “what is the definitve rule on xy in Europe?” it will not be possible to answer it, other than pointing to the relevant bit in Part-NCO. Interesting times ahead…

@flyer59 Thanks for the offer! I/we might take you up on the offer of an drive to Split airport if we decide to leave the plane there, but most likely we'll fly to Athens on Sunday.

Yes - somebody did tell me about this, @Noe I just have not bothered to set it up. On a similar line, you might enjoy this which remains unresolved. Many thanks @LFHNflightstudent for the input. I ...
From pilot's perspective, VLA is just like CS-23 (C172, etc.). It's just a lighter certification specification.
