Hi gang!

First post. Iím a pilot on the Airbus at AC. Iím looking to purchase some time on an aircraft in the Ottawa/Gatineau. I want to treat your aircraft like itís mine and have a great relationship with the owner or owners.

Hi Chris and welcome to the Ottawa Pilots. I have a friend who flies for AC as captain and I took him flying in my Piper Cherokee 140. I don't know what technic is used in flying an Airbus but it sure did not look as if he applied the proper landing technic for my Piper since I had to take over at the last second. I remember transitioning from a Cherokee Six to my present little 140 and it felt as if I was flying a toy. I think a few circuits in a smaller aircraft would give you a feel for the much lighter control and different reaction times of a GA aircraft.

You're absolutely right. It takes many flight to get comfortable with a new plane, especially going from an Airbus to a Cherokee. I will send you a private message.
