Weekly tips, technique and training from IFR.

Preface

You find yourself in a rapid updraft with lots of vertical acceleration while remaining in your cruise, relatively flat, pitch. How will those pesky otolith organs of yours react this time?

1.

They create the illusion of descending.

2.

They create the illusion of climbing.

3.

They shut down completely as they are out of their operational envelope.

4.

They create the illusion of your aircraft being an F-16 in full afterburner.

And if you thought it was unfair, confusing, or a waste of time, we'd like you to tell us that, too. And if you have an idea for a subject that you think would make a good future IFR Quiz, be sure to let us know.
