The lack of pressurization would mean that it couldn't comfortably fly any of the jet climb/descent profiles either .


Its a pain in the ass for corporate piston twins also. I get told to fly jet profiles a lot and going into big airports and getting far behind the power curve of the airplane.

Great idea! Better yet, make the BOD fly to Paris onboard a MAX that does not have the fixes. They clearly felt the MAX was safe enough for "regular" people, it should be safe enough for Boeing's BOD, right?


Nah, they won't do that, its not a BBJ

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

There are still a ton of them in the air. How is a grounding enforced? Is there a timeframe to comply with a grounding?

Re: ERJ 175 Pilots bored out of their minds even on regional flights

If anyone would actually read the article, the quote the OP provided is taken incredibly out of context. It's an excellent article about a few days in the life of a regional pilot grappling with his decision.

Re: WN flight makes emergency landing after cabin pressure (failure) leaves passenger bleeding from ears

99 times out of 100, descending into the Louisville area, my ears do this, any other place any other time, it's not an issue.

I can't imagine ears bleeding when the aircraft never got above 10000 ft, had to be an additional issue with the person that the media didn't report.

Re: How does extreme cold affect flight ops?

Have you been around an airplane as more than a passenger? A little bit. Mostly just as a pilot. And a mechanic. And an inspector. And instructor. And flight engineer. But only for the past few decades. I do ride as a passenger on occasion, though. And no, avionics are not smart phones. I am not ac...

Time to seriously restrict this kind of aviation. If you cannot maintain a plane and pilot skills then you don't fly, period

What kind of aviation would that be? The kind with 2 wings and 2 engines? You have zero information about anything, what an arrogant statement.

Absolutely, the vast majority of accidents are a chain which started with pilot error.

Re: Student pilot close to flight test

Remember, if your instructor signed you off to take the test, the examiner has no reason to think you don't know how to fly. All it is is a conversation about aviation, answer to the best of your knowledge with succinct answers and fly as best as you know how. The PTS/ACS is written for a perfect da...

Re: Single Pilot Passenger Jet Operations

Agreed and I never flew it single pilot, even then the insurance coverage was more expensive than a second pilot. Having said that, it does bring up ego as a driving force for non-professional owner flown jets. GF I couldn’t agree more, ego and the bizarre cheapness of wealthy individuals who will ...

Re: How does extreme cold affect flight ops?

Go put your smartphone in the freezer for 10 minutes and pull it out and see how it works. Now imagine that you left it in the freezer overnight and pull it out and imagine how it would work. That's what happens to many of the electronic and mechanical components of the airplane and also ground equ...

Re: How far away are we from direct routings

I don't see it happening any time soon in the USA. Delays are worse than ever. RVSM had no effect, things actually worse with the FAA now issuing AFPs-airway flow programs. New York center fails out the vast majority of controllers attempting to check out there, guaranteeing continual manpower shor...

Re: Plane overran runway at TGU

I’ve often wondered what the requirements are for business jet pilots to go in to TGU. At most US airlines, a captain has to go there twice with an experienced line check airman before being signed off to operate at that airport Nowadays some FAR Part 91, & 135 operators run their crews thru a ...

This is smelling a lot like an airline, at what point will they have to obtain 121 status? They have airplanes bigger than 9 seats and are scheduled. Isn't that the definition of 121?
