Re: Feeling Overwhelmed

As someone above me said, look at military.

Re: Air Astana EMB 190 Squawked 7700 after erratic flight; landed safely

In the Youtube video above, at 1:43, what’s that cockpit sound that can be heard in the background of the pilot’s transmission? Edit: at 3:30 I’m hearing a background sound, not sure if it’s a cockpit sound, but the best way I can describe it is a rattlesnake-like sound. I hear it right at 3:30 and...

Re: AS Horizon Cancellations due to Pilot Shortage

This has been discussed a lot at the university I go to in my aviation classes. The projections show it only getting worse. We already had a few of the regionals come to our classes to try and recruit us once we graduate. Luckily, I did the military first, so I have the GI bill to cover the majority...

Re: KLM 747 retirement schedule

Yup, ORD-AMS is still a 744, 744M to be exact. Flew ORD-AMS-ORD this past December, first time on a 744, hopefully I can catch it ...

Transatlantic Without INS/GPS/IRU

How did aircraft make it across the Atlantic without any of the aboveentioned systems? For instance, the early 737s didn't have any form of INS (I could be wrong on this), how would say, Lufthansa, get theirs delivered across from the US? Thank you
