The Fokker 50 Panel Project
Espen at NAIA

Hi all!

This is a collection of pictures from my flight training at North American Institute of Aviation.

Me and the C172 RG.
Me and the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole. Flying this baby was a lot of fun!
Piper PA-44-180 Seminole cockpit. Full of buttons, knobs and handles to play with!
Single-engine operations; "Full feather shut-down" is what this is called. One of the engines is shut down in-flight and the prop is fully feathered (for minimum drag). Quite exciting!
It can help you a lot in your training if you practice procedures in the aircraft on the ground (...and it's a lot cheaper).
This picture was taken by my room-mate who sat in the backseat during my multi-engine checkride. The FAA examiner set BOTH fuel shut-off valves to the OFF position without me knowing it! I guarantee you my heartbeat went up a few notches when both engines suddenly "out of the blue" started to run rough! Mixture, prop, throttle, fuel pumps, fuel shut-off valves, check!
Proud pilot, on his way home to Norway - with gold wings!
