I posted a similar question in Tech Ops but in typical A.net fashion, the thread went in a million directions without the question being answered! So I will ask it here, and hopefully get a CO
pilot to answer.
A friend says he flew into DCA
on a Continental 73G and that when the aircraft landed, no spoilers were used. He says he has seen this several times at DCA
, on 735s and 73Gs.
So I was wondering if this is true. The Tech Ops thread has established that it IS
possible to land without spoilers, given a long enough runway/right conditions. But does CO
do this at DCA
? Is it possible to do at DCA
given the relatively short runways and above all, WHY would CO
choose to do this. Any thoughts are appreciated.
