  1. Just found this approach chart and oh boy...

    FB_IMG_1537617278617.thumb.jpg.c50596b26ffe052833accd345228ae2f.jpg

    Missed approach... 

  2. Oh my, University of Glasgow offers exchanges with university of Tokyo, Kyoto, Weseda, Keio and Hitotsubashi. 

     

    Well I know exactly what I'm going to try to do in second or third year then :)

      Do note that "sodesune" can mean many different things, depends on context.

      Ah the good old context sensitive clues.  The thing that can turn I'm eating grandma and I'm eating, grandma into two completely different things ;)

    4. Mr.Meerkat

      Mr.Meerkat

      True true, to be fair, the meanings don't vary as much as that. Generally they always mean something positive of something like "yes", "I know" ect. 

  3. Wait, so what you're telling me is I can go sue Oxford aviation for not allowing people to resell their extremely pricey ATPL software? Yas! I can now get them for so much cheaper!

    REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, Takao is not a light cruiser! It is a heavy cruiser as it as 203mm/8 inch guns, not 155mm/6 inch guns like pre-refit Mogami. Geddit rite... Do agree on aoki hagane being amazing part tho.

    Well dun, back to elementary school for you, painters :) 

  6. Year 1 university maths for engineering: 

    First lecture - How to do basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra (BIDMAS)

     

    Ummmm...did I walk into a primary (aka elementary for most) school maths class? No seriously, more or less all of the items were taught in primary and middle school (again, no middle school here as middle and high are integrated but the years do match up with middle)...

      @Mr.Meerkat if I am reading your comment right, you have taken all calcuus, differential equations, and matrix and linear algebra.

       

      What math is above that?

    4. Mr.Meerkat

      Mr.Meerkat

      @CUDAcores89 Do note that I don't live in America so our education system is different. On that note, yes, I have learned differential equations, matrices, linear algebra and the vast majority of the content (according to this website at least) in calculus 2 plus about 70% of calculus 3 (if not more).

       

      Here in Scotland, if you do advanced highers (6th year, last year of high school, if you don't go to uni after 5th year), as long as what you take subjects related to your course and do actually bother to learn the stuff, generally, before you have even started university, you would have already learned about 80% of first year hence they give you an option to skip to second year if your grades for your advanced highers are good enough ;)

       

      Edit: Oh, looking at calculus 4, I've done the complex parts as well.

    When the partial (I know its not a complete rip-off hence partial) rip-off of a certain game is slowly becoming more popular than the original...having a Chinese, Japanese and English version really does seem to help its popularity, not to mention how its a phone-based game versus PS vita/browser
  8. Ummmm...what the actual... Is this? Adding 2000 business miles onto my insurance would decrease premiums by £300. How does that work? 

     

    In other news, looks like I'll be using this forum less and less. Don't even ask me how I am even going to be able to work 30 hours/week while being in full time education, studying CAA's ATPLs and flight training all at the same time. Me savings are a little thin now so if I want to meet my goal of having a CPL+IR+FI in two years, it's time that I got busy busy busy.

  9. Fun times when you're mass applying to job vacancies...especially when nobody seems to want to look at your rubbish mediocre CV? Eghhhhhh...

      I LOATHE job hunting

      Why do you people need to know my entire work history and everywhere i've lived since i was born??

    3. Mr.Meerkat

      Mr.Meerkat

      my entire work history is just "here's some volunteering and here a month internship at a company you'd wish you're working at"... :P 

    4. Jtalk4456

      Jtalk4456

      i worked staffing for a while, so my job history has like 15-20 companies in the last 5 years

  10. Ta pal, we really needed some status spam didn't we?

      nah, that's all for today :P 

       

  11. Ayyy, I am now officially an imperial reject :). Well in the bright side, I won't have to stuggle with just passing now as their courses are supposedly extremely hard. I mean, my sister's straight A+ friends are on the boundaries for 2:1 and my grades are considerably worse than theirs.... 

     

    Anyway, hopefully Southampton gives me the news I wanna hear, an offer for aerospace electronics engineering either this year or next. In fact, I'd love a gap year as I'd be able to get a flight instructor rating, allowing me to fly for free (cough cough, not to mention the pay, £160~/hr, £30 for your wallet and £130 towards your logbook).

      South Hampton Institute of Technology?

    3. Mr.Meerkat

      Mr.Meerkat

      Nope, University of Southampton, land of brexit. 

  12. Hiya gals! Been some time since I was active. Been busy with forcing persuading Southampton to gimme an offer for aerospace electronics engineering and visiting paps in my birth prefecture. 

     

    Anyway, final chance for me to get into imperial as my remark for my advanced Higher physics and maths is to be released within the next 6 odd hours. Welp? 

  13. What to do today...sis and I have already been to the vast majority of places in Tokyo so how should we kill time today? (not doing too much as we are still in the wrong timezone, in fact we had only landed 22 hours ago so not surprising I guess).

  14. Oh yeah, just remembered about the brief exchange I heard between Scottish information and a pilot...

     

    Pilot: "X-XXXX, over Perth (city), landing at Perth"

    Scottish: "Roger X-XXXX, Perth radio is on 121.080"

    Pilot: "121.080, X-XXXX" 

    (Okay, I don't remember the words that was spoken exactly upto this point but it was something like that).

    About 30 seconds later...

    Pilot: Perth, X-XXXX

    Scottish: You're still on Scottish

    Pilot: Sorry

    About 30 seconds later...

    Pilot: Perth, X-XXXX

    Scottish: Still scottish

    Pilot: Sorry

    About 60 seconds later...

    Pilot: Perth, X-XXXX

    Scottish: still on Scottish

     

    About 2 or 3 mins later, I switch to Perth as well as I'm coming back from my X-Country solo. 

    I make initial contact, get the runway in use and QNH and I then hear the same guy making initial contact, after me! He joined the circuit with no issues but then came the taxi-ing. 

     

    (note: Although it is only A/G, he was trying to be helpful by telling the pilot where to go for parking as it was obvious the pilot had not been at perth before) 

    A/G officer: X-XX, turn left 

    Pilot: Right? 

    A/G officer: Left!

    Pilot: Right? 

    A/G officer: Turn left and park on the grass island. 

    Pilot: I'm departing straight away! 

     

    At this point, I had already landed, taxi-ed to my spot and shut-down so didn't hear anymore of it. Regardless, those were pretty funny exchanges.

      so confused right now

  15. Ummm... What did I actually expect from £5 earphones other than muddy bass with somewhat existing mids an highs. Unintentionally damaged my pair of earphones before these sooooo...welp?

    1. AluminiumTech

      AluminiumTech

      Yeah, I have one pair of £10 headphones and bass is muddy and just sounds mediocre

      I use $10 earbuds from Staples and they work fine, sound is OK cause I mostly listen to podcasts
