You're welcome to use English at APC to your heart's content but a lot of our own users struggle with English too. You may wish to try some sort of Turkish-English website until your English comes up. Welcome to APC.

It's pretty interesting to have a foreign combat pilot's contribution, so welcome! What aircraft do you fly?

Well, unfortunately, the closest I ever got to military life was Air force ROTC, then my eyesight got too bad to be a pilot. I gave up on being a military pilot, but did get my private pilot's license. After college, I got involved in computers and information technology. That provided a pretty good living and even enabled me to live overseas for a while. When the US airline pilot market started to rise again in the late 90's, I decided to try to become a commercial pilot. I finished my instructor's course in May of 2001, just a few months before the tragedy of the 9/11 attack! So my progression was delayed. Now, 14 yrs later, I fly as a captain on an Embraer 145.

As a side story, I once a had an Asian student who had 1000 hrs in the SH-60 Seahawk helicopter, but had a devil of a time learning to land our little trainer, because he would always push the nose down at last second on landing. I was told this was due to helicopter flying habits. Do you think that is true?

I am flying both plane and helicopter as you know. I think there is no effect on landing with plane. But if you are in final approach with helicopter your speed may be more higher than usual approach. Did i tell ?
