Why does the UK CAA force a 2000hr engine overhaul, and blocks SDMP, for flying schools?

From here

Shame in the UK flying schools are not allowed to move onto the self declared maintenance programme.

I say that as my only engine failure occurred 150 hours post overhaul.

And so it thoroughly annoys me when a perfectly working engine has to be removed at 2000 hours and replaced with one that is less safe.

IFR at uncontrolled aerodromes - a study by the Czech CAA

Tb20 9 Ava Img 2813 Avatar

Last year, the Czech CAA in collaboration with APAC GmbH of Austria and some local operators undertook a study of changes to the regulations and airspace structure required to enable IFR operations from uncontrolled aerodromes. The study produced several hundred pages of documents in English. I haven’t studied them yet for lack of time, but if anyone is interested, they are here.

Acceptable IAS discrepancy ?

Dscn1198 Tb20 9 Babypilotmedium

Hey there !

Looked into the TB20 PIM, this forum and the www, but did not find any usable information.

What would be, on our GA plane, an “acceptable” IAS discrepancy between main and stby indicators ?

when crosschecking on takeoff at 50 IAS, i usually have 3 to 5 knots discrepancy between those instruments.

Hi Petakas - of course I get your point, but there's been so much talk on this and other Greek threads about significant and sometimes hiked costs etc that I wanted to check in advance. It wasn't r...
The potential perpetrator might be better off to stick with different types, intended for VFR operations at smaller airports

I was merely saying that FR24 reveals much of Mode S traffic and can thus reveal current practices within certain sectors of airspace users.
