    I don't know how to exactly explain what I mean, so I'll have to give an example, like NCS and DofE these 2 things are a program in which you develop various skills while having fun along the way and after it goes on your CV which unis and employers value. Thing is, is there any sort of program like this that relates to aviation and is intended for young aspiring pilots (15+ or something like that), like where you meet other aspiring pilots, pilots and other people who work in the aviation industry.Where you participate in a variety of activities that are somehow related to aviation? And if there is can you mention it in your CV and will it benefit because I am EXTREMELY, cannot get this across enough, enthusiastic about planes. Am I making any sense?, hope you have some sort of idea of what I'm asking! lol

    I used to draw airports as a child, like the whole internal structure. I like airports and planes as well.

    Tell me OP, what's worse, a failure of all hydraulic systems of a plane or the failure of both engines of a plane. You have enough fuel, APU has got basic instruments working, visibility is good, you have called Mayday Mayday Mayday. You are descending for landing.

    Not sure what this has to do with what I asked lol. Hydraulics is worse in my opinion, with engine loss you can still manoeuvre the plane, descend and land, I'd dump the fuel to make the aircraft lighter increasing the range of the aircraft and it's not necessary since engines aren't working.Without hydraulics you'll just plummet towards the ground.

    Boy knows his stuff.

    Yes, hydraulic failures are fatal. No rudder, no aileron, no flaps, you are in a death trap basically. You can steer with engine thrust, but you have no control over the nose.

    I wouldn't dump the fuel though, the fuel gives the engine power, you can still stay up longer (till you eventually die) with engines.
