Flight Instructor states that we all fly over a FLAT EARTH.
Thanks again for having me on Mark.
I calculated what it would take for an aircraft to sustain a constant altitude above the ground while flying 100 miles away. If the aircraft is going 120mph (small piston aircraft like I fly) then it would need to do a constant decent at 133 feet per minute. If the aircraft was doing 360 mph (typical for small regional jets) then it would have to maintain at least 400 feet per minute.
A normal decent rate for a small aircraft is around 5-700 ft/min, and airliners are about 1000 ft/min. CLEARLY… we would notice the fact that we are loosing 100′ of al
Here is my exact calculation:
Aircraft flies 100sm along the surface of the earth (altitude in AGL is arbitrary). How
much angle, and what decent rate would be required to maintain a constant altitude above
the earth’s surface, assuming the given curvature of the earth (per modern science).
Distance Travelled = 100sm (528000 feet)
Altitude Loss = 6669 feet (per standard curvature formula)
Angle Required to maintain level = -0.72°
Feet Per Minute (120 mph) = 133 ft/min
Feet Per Minute (360 mph) = 400 ft/min
The big event has come and gone, with spectacular results. The first Flat Earth conference in the history of modern civilization! Where were you? If you haven’t seen it yet, check out all the video archives on youtube. What a week, what a great opportunity to meet great people from the unstoppable FE community. Where...
The first Flat Earth conference in the history of the United States is only one week away. Go to Fe2017 dot com and sign up for live streaming, or head down to Raleigh North Carolina and join media, speakers and 1000 hungry Flat Earth enthusiasts. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Where have you been,...
The Flat Earth countdown continues! Two weeks until the first US Flat Earth national conference! Only took 241 years, which is why you should be there! Not into Flat Earth? Why not, everyone is talking about it, and writing, and blogging, and making videos. Get with the program! ...
The countdown has begun, 3 weeks until the 2017 Flat Earth international conference, the first one in the history of the United States! Only took 241 years, but hey, better late than never. Lots of callers chime in with various theories and subjects taking place over the last few weeks. Tune in! ...
United States Air Traffic Controller Thomas is the subject matter expert for this show. He is also a 99 percent Flat Earth member. Thomas goes over different arguments for the Flat Earth, and even a few for the globe. He also takes callers questions for the second half of the show! Not into Flat Earth...
Mark brings on US Army Master Gunner Brian Burton to talk about the Las Vegas shooting. What do we know so far? That there were at least two shooters, that the muzzle flash was from below the 10th floor, and that the AR-15’s claimed to have been used, were not powerful enough to have created...
