Rotor vs Fixed Wing

Well i am and always being fascinated by planes…basically any flying machine.
Planning on becoming a pilot in the near future maybe.But one que i have a problem getting an answer.
Is it difficult to learn flying a plane more than a helicopter/chopper??

Sikuelewi but its not difficult to fly a plane. Ground school ndio inaweza kukuleta kiasi Navigation and Meteorology. Otherwise flying is easy

Diff. in flying a plane and flying a heli.Which is easier and that kind of staff

For both, properly installed and working Osungu.dll is usually a requirement.

Now let us wait and see if @Jazzman is in the mood to answer your ‘que’, which a bit of web research could have answered within 2 minutes. Whatever you do, do not accept any suggestions from [B]Kunguni the Pilot[/B]. He once flew a KQ Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to Jo’Burg instead of Kampala. He was navigating by river in the dry season.

Flying heli is more advanced than fixed wing aircraft

Start with a glider.

Helo ni more complicated and takes more time to master. Whichever unataka, stay with it. Apana ruka ruka all over the place. Fixed wing ndio bora ku start nayo.

Flying a chopper engages hands, feet and eyes full time, each controlling a different freight parameter in real time. Think of it like four dimension.

So does fixed wing.

Helicopter ni kama baiskeli ya miguu mbili, na hiyo ingine nikama baiskeli ya miguu tatu.

Enda kwa rafiki Wangu Ririani. You train bila stress pale Orly Na Malindi. Wilson Ni stress tupu juu ya traffic. Mara extend downwind report PA28 in sight. Mara make a missed approach on this one…extend upwind…standby start up etc

Hizo ningumu kuliko helicopter vile lazima ukaze ukishika brake.

Vile umeelezwa na wazito @bjurmann na @kiLo- hivyo ndivyo kuko. Ikifika kuchagua, fuata moyo wako na ukwame nayo kama ndoa ya kitambo juu kila ina quirks zake tofauti. In the meantime, tafuta Microsoft Flight Simulator X uwe na headstart na pia inaweza kusaidia kufanya maamuzi kati ya aina hizi mbili. Ongea na @ochithunder akusaidie na setup ya simulator

eti kuna Flight Simulator ya FedEx (or was it UPS?) that is so advanced, that flight hours during training have the same value as real world flight hours, and can be logged?

Hii ujinga ndio inafanya Kenya tuitwe 3rd World Country
