|Quoting PSAjet17 (Reply 2):|
I would assume that when loading the upper deck, the pallets would be push forward and then the aft would be loaded. That should provide enough forward ballast to keep the aircraft from doing a wheelie.
|Quoting Tod (Reply 8):|
This allows one door design to be used on both freighter and combi configurations.
|Quoting AbirdA (Reply 9):|
Not quite. For some time now it has been clear that the FAA will NOT certify any new designs for Combi aircraft due to the concern of increased risk to passengers' lives in the event of unplanned impacts that could jar the cargo loose.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 10):|
They will certify them with a fixed firewall between the two cabins. Still, unlikely a carrier would want that
|Quoting UPS Pilot (Thread starter):|
The only freighter by Boeing, Airbus or MDD/Douglas to date is the 747
|Quoting Glom (Reply 17):|
It says that the freighter has a range of less than 5000NM. I thought it was based on the 772LR?
|Quoting AbirdA (Reply 11):|
I was under the impression that there was no way the FAA would be certifying the carriage of pax and freight on the same deck of any new design. Not doubting you, just curious to learn more about current Combi policies.
