To 717 Drivers

Tue Oct 01, 2002 12:01 am

To any 717 Drivers in the United States....I'm doing a project for my Aerodynamics/Performance Class on the 717. I've got a small book from Boeing that explains a lot about the airplane, but it was recommended that if I could get my hands on the POH that would help me out the best. I am willing to fly to wherever one of you are located and copy down some performance pages, etc and if willing maybe conduct a short interview. Please email me privately if you able to help me out and we could work it out somehow. Thank you =o)

Hi Ryan...
I'm not a 717 pilot, but I do have a issue of Aviation Week & Space Tech that has a 717 Pilot Report which is very good on specs & performance evaluation. It's dated June 7th, 1999 vol 150, no 23. Check out the libraries around you there. Some of the larger ones will carry back issues up to 3-4 years. I wish I could post a link here, but I can't find an address for this particular issue. Good luck on your project. Regards.
