Spotting at Central Jersey Airport – Cessna 152 – May 5, 2007

October 12, 2008

Cessna 152

Central Jersey Airport (47N)
Manville, NJ
Saturday May 5, 2007

IN THIS VIDEO, watch as YouTube director SemperApollo takes Cessna 152, tail number N757QJ, up for some takeoffs and landings. A couple takeoffs were simulated soft field takeoffs. How well do you think he did? This video was shot a mere three weeks before he took his checkride, which he passed with flying colors.

    That third short …
    That third short field take off would nothave cleared a fifty ft obstacle had it been at the RWY’s end. Dont retract flaps so quickly because the aircraft will fall as on the first and third takeoff.

    Could have been …
    Could have been alot better. Keep practicing and try keeping your spot the same in the wind screen all the way to the ground.

    oh lol! sorry, it dose sound a little radiculous for no hours in the US. Are you in the US and are you a pilot, becuase i’m doing my Air law exam at the minute and I was just wondering if the rules from the Convention on International civil aviation applied in the US, I think it dose dosn’t it.

    I’m not too sure how many I have to take, or if some are classed one or not, but I think we do about 10 or so.

    I’m quoting from …
    I’m quoting from the AFE Air law text book, “An Applicant for a JAR PPL must have completed at least 45 hours of flight time” You must fly at least 25 hours dual, 10 hours supervised solo flight, You must also undertake at least five hours of solo cross country, one with a minimum of 1500nm and 2 stops.

    The 152 has 24.5 US …
    The 152 has 24.5 US gallons usable. It burns about 6 gallons/hour so about 4 hours. That doesn’t include the FAA required reserves (30 minutes during the day and 45 at night).

    yeah, loads of exams hear too

  15. dmspilot on October 12th, 2008 7:20 am

    That is false, you need 40 hours minimum total, including at least 20 dual and 10 solo.

  16. teenflon5 on October 12th, 2008 7:20 am

    I asked my …
    I asked my instructor the other week but I have forgotten what he said. I think he said it would fly for about 4 hours I think. Either 4 or 2. I think he said it uses about 6 gallons per hour, so I think it was 12 Gallons. I will definately check on my next lesson, but that will be in some time because of the bad weather in the UK!

    That’s odd. In the UK you need 43 hours for the International Joint Aviation Regulation Private Pilots Licence, (International as in you can fly in about 10 european countries) or 32 hours for the National Private Pilots Licence, for the UK Only, pluss loads of exams!

    there is no …
    there is no limitation you could just learn from groundschool and have his pilots licence flight be his first flight. but i don’t think that woud be a very could way to learn, you need some hand on experience as well, prior to your PPL

    If those were all …
    If those were all soft field, there should have been more back pressure on the yoke at taxi to the centerline and landing with the nose wheel up for awhile then slowly down.
    But… any landing where you can reuse the aircraft is a great landing.

    What’s the fying hours requirment for the US Private Pilots Licence?

    I know exactly what …
    I know exactly what you mean, it was really windy one day, and I was coming in to land, and twice I bounced on the right main landing gear, and it seemed fine!!! Both times it just bounced a bit then came down on both, but the gear can take a lot of force.

  24. teenflon5 on October 12th, 2008 7:20 am

    I really don’t know …
    I really don’t know, I will find out for you on thursday the 17th and reply then. I am guessing about 3 to 4 hours it can take but I will find out for definate then.
