If the section for controlling pitch manually with column and trim is ALWAYS to be followed, it should not be indented. The following modified checklist would make that far more obvious... Do you see the subtle but important difference? The first suggests that you only manually trim if you had to d...Jump to post
CLT is my personal favorite despite not a whole lot of variation in airlines. Yes, CLT has a great observation area, right next to the approach end of Runway 18C: https://photos.smugmug.com/Airplanes/Airliners-and-Airport-Spotting/Charlotte-Douglas-Airport/i-H22m8KJ/0/b79d03da/L/JM_2012_04_29_Charl...Jump to post

Yes, saw it on the news yesterday. There's a thread in the Civil Av forum, but I think it's better as a Non-Av posting, since other than the fact that he works as a pilot, it's really not aviation related.

As far as I know, there are no scheduled wide bodies into LGA these days. I'm not aware of FedEx ever bringing the MD-10 in, but they may have on a one-off.

I think it would be a good addition - as you note, there are times I would like to acknowledge a post, or show my agreement, but without quoting it and making another comment, you can't, and that adds another post of little value to the thread.

What would happen if the pilot asked for emergency crew, and it the end, the landing was routine and nothing bad happened, therefore fire fighters are not needed? In another forum they asked if the pilots or the airline would receive a fine for having called a emergency when it wasn't needed. I don...Jump to post
I have a number of shots of N732MA, Miami Air did (still does?) team charter flights for the New York Islanders, and we saw their birds in and out of KFRG regularly during the hockey season.

I don’t get the vehement defense of 150 hr total time pilots at the controls of mainline schedule pax planes. Your argument is spurious all pilots start with zero hours. While true you are missing the point. And I don't get your repeated rants about pilot time either. You have posted the same thing...Jump to post

I disagree. Got hit a few times as a child, both at home and school. Problem with Psychologists is that they try to create one rule that fits every instance.

They didn't have the inside open to the public, but I did get a good look around the outside and spent about 10 minutes talking with one of the pilots who flew it in.

If you are in the region, you might want to add Charlotte, NC to your list.

There may be a low-level training route in your area where they are making training runs. It's been ages since I've done any of that, but generally you have a route with several turns that you fly at low (500 foot, maybe lower) and at high speed to simulate an attack on a target.Jump to post

It’s a good aircraft, much preferable to the tiny, cramped Cessna 152 series Not stable at all but that made it a good trainer, if you can fly it you can fly anything I earned my PPL in the Tomahawk while in college.

If there wasn't a stability issue inherent in the Max, then why was MCAS introduced for an airframe that is identical to previous 737 models? Because it's identical with exception to the engine size and placement on the wings. MCAS was added so that the Max handled the same as the NG, which the air...Jump to post
No, this is very recent thing. 2005. You make it seem like law is god-given. The law was passed by congress (or senate, I keep confusing them). Who in turn was lobbied by Boeing.

The truth is that FAA followed orders from Senate/President/whoever to offload certification work back to Boeing, and now they are going to be made scapegoat for doing what they were told. No, the FAA wasn't ordered by "whoever" to offload this work back to Boeing. That authority is grant...Jump to post
That’s fairly unusual though. General rule of thumb is more then 25 knots gust and they’ll stick on the 31s. In the morning and evening ~20 knots or less and they’ll switch to the 22s or 4s so they can launch RBV departures off 31L/KE. In the late morning and early afternoon they’ll usually prefer ...Jump to post
I’ll give jfk credit though, they ran the 22s all the way up to most aircraft cross wind limits. I landed 22L Wednesday with a 35 knot almost direct crosswind.
