B-52 with an engine out holding for Fairford (burning fuel off):
If it was for real you could check it with an app on your phone or watch yourself on flight radar. Just mention that to the examiner I bet they will be impressed with your lateral thinking and pass you.Not a bean. Got my Licence and Operator’s Proficiency Checks in the sim over 3 days next week which as I’ve not flown since March is causing me a degree of discomfort in the lower gut. Some clever arse has written the sim programme to kick off with one of the most difficult handling exercises there is, Flight with Unreliable Airspeed. Basically this involves switching all the automation off, degrading the Flight Controls system and failing all Air Speed Indicators.
Nice little warm up.
