Re: Highest altitude acheived with 737-700

Ceiling is FL410 for the 700... so.... FL410. It has good climb performance similar to a 757 and A319. It's a bit more wiggly in my experience but does land nicer than the 800.

Coming down final once fully configured and on speed is around 55-60% in most aircraft.

RE: Saab 340 Engine Sound Pitch Change- Why?

The deep "BRRRROOOOOWWWWW" sound is when they put the engine into "beta" which is a flat to slightly negative angle of attack of the blades... i.e. a light amount of reverse.

When they come out of beta and back into forward thrust is when it goes quiet.

I didn't have an issue with the money- the key was that almost 6% of the pay bumps were paid for in profit sharing reduction, a new sick policy that was a complete can of worms, and significant work rules give backs.

The buzzsaw goes away as the airplane goes through the air faster and faster, too. N1 increases with altitude (cruise RPM is typically higher than takeoff RPM, particularly with a reduced thrust takeoff).

I always figured it had to do with the AOA of the fan blade.
