Re: U.S. Politicians propose Green-New-Deal. Air Travel to Become Unnecessary

And yet you'd nodoubt be fine with Eminent Domain being used to build a border wall. Hahahahaha... you’re funny.. So because I am critical of socialism, I must be a Trump supporter? You know nothing about me yet you think you do. It just shows how biased and judgemental you are. It’s a shame we can...

Re: U.S. Politicians propose Green-New-Deal. Air Travel to Become Unnecessary

I don’t know why you associate “eminent domain” with socialism. If you’re such a (presumably) supporter of the aviation industry, how in the hell do you think airports got built? Through the magic of private enterprise? I associate socialism with eminent domain because socialists generally have ver...

Re: U.S. Politicians propose Green-New-Deal. Air Travel to Become Unnecessary

The idea that eliminating most air travel with high speed rail is completely ludicrous, however to be fair, US aviation infrastructure has been stretched by the massive growth in 70-seat short-haul routes. Do you really need to fly between ORD and MKE? Between JFK and BDL? Between SMF and SFO? High...

RE: Aggressive Approach Go Round In AEP Embraer 190

Look like they were possibly hot and high (4 whites). So the reason for there go around might have been an unstable approach. This would also explain your sense of an 'aggressive' approach, eg. high speed, steep descend angle, banking close to the ground, etc.

RE: Flare-less Landings

The C-17 doesn't flare in the traditional sense (by pitching up). It actually flies at a constant angle until touchdown and increases the thrust just prior to touchdown to cushion the impact. This way the aircraft is accurately flown down onto the markers without wasting valuable runway. Of course t...

RE: Hot Brakes Delays Departure - Preventable?

Interesting fact; one brake application on an A320 equals approx $80 in brake wear. Hence the importance of correct braking technique, ie don't 'ride' the brakes!!!
