Re: VC-32 replacement

They could positioned a crew in HNL to take over for the last leg home. If I'm not mistaken the USAF has both 737 and Gulfstream crews stationed in HNL so they certainly have the support to handle each aircraft and its needs. They could... But they typically do not. They probably planned for Tiller...

Re: VIDEO: C17 descends 20,000ft in less than 1min

The G forces would be immense at pullout. Stunning! Not really. Thrust reversers are stowed 2000 feet above level off altitude and you make the level off as smooth as you want. Starting the maneuver is more violent. Once those reversers are out the plane wants to slow, and fast. This requires a lar...

I wouldn't say it's the most stupid, it's just ignorant.

Re: Quick question: Can some engines on some types be started with the PACS running?

Hi didn't say they did, just indicated that one cannot run the packs and start the engines at the same time. Is that due to the packs putting a load on the electrical system, sufficiently high to not crank the motor concurrently? It's not an electrical thing, it's a bleed air thing. Yes the APU doe...

Re: Technical stop duration

- Even with underground pipelines for fuel, you need a fuel truck to actually pump the fuel. The process is transparent to us pilots. We don't care if it comes from a bowser or from a pumping truck. I'm going to say something to the contrary about this. I care a lot whether the airfield has what we...

Re: Pilots: AA leaving behind standby passengers to improve on-time departure

AA places a very heavy emphasis on D0, though to be fair I wouldn't have a job without it. At what time did you get to the gate? If everyone's on board—including all the standbys at the gate—then they're going to go. Standbys are generally processed no later than 15 minutes before departure, when t...

McDonnell Douglas C-17A:

Command guidance gives a preference of DRT for all takeoffs unless you cannot get good TOLD numbers.
