Wow! Thanks for that great information. That's exactly along the lines of what I'm looking for. At the risk of sounding ungrateful, do you happen to know any net or print sources for this so I can document access to it as hard information? And does anyone know how I could find out how many people <a...Jump to post

Oh I forgot to mention one thing. It may go without saying, but just for clarification, I'm also interested in information regarding Eagle's ops there during that time period, so if anyone could offer guidance finding information on that it would also be greatly appreciated.

What is the procedure for maintaining a breathing air supply in the event of an engine shutdown at altitude? I assume that some sort of supplement would have to be used since the compressors are no longer running, but I don't know for sure. I also didn't know if the O2 masks are supplied off tanks o...Jump to post

Remember what happened the last time the Europeans sent a behemoth transport machine out equipped with life rafts. There weren't e-damn-nough. LOL. However, I'd say the 380 would have to have a truck load of them. Figure 10 folks a piece on a raft, and they're talking several hundred people.... Yike...Jump to post
Hahaha, if I were given a pee-covered seat the crew would be given a single-fingered salute.
I would think that crews onboard would be responsible for messes like that. That's a biohazard, and I can't imagine them letting it sit there. That needs to be cleaned up properly and quick.

Does anyone know what connections there are between aviation and Maritime Law? Specifically, I'm aware that the Captain of a sea vessel has the power of marriage. Does this power also extend to aircraft Captains? That is my main question, but any connections between the two would be interesting to k...Jump to post

If a flight is oversold, yes airlines are required to issue compensation. That's not my argument, and I've never stated anything to the contrary. But if one is denied for another outlined reason (IE, intoxication) airlines are not required to compensate. And I recognize no difference between the ter...Jump to post
Naturally you have no knowledge of which cases are to my knowledge. That would make no sense, and I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to accomplish with that statement. However, I will be glad to tell you what the term "to my knowledge" implies. The cases to my knowledge come straight out of air...Jump to post
But the contract of carriage <i>must</i> state that the airline reserves right to refuse service to anyone (None to my knowledge do). If it does not, the contract is binding, and only outlined offenses may be grounds for refusal. By stating specific terms and agreeing to them, the airline waives any...Jump to post
Incorrect. Airlines have the right to refuse service to anyone that poses a safety risk, or violates the airline's contract of carriage. By purchasing the ticket, you are entering into a legal, contractual agreement with the airline. In contracts of carriage, there are specific outlines as to violat...Jump to post
<i>You don't have a civil right to be transported on an airplane!</i> In so many words, no. But you are not entirely correct either. And yes, it is a free speech issue.

FedEx holds a lottery for its employees. If an employee wins, that employee's child has an aircraft named after him/her. Each winning child receives a nice little certificate that tells all about "their" airplane, how it performs, where it goes, etc.

One place to consider is Middle Tennessee State University. http://mtsu32.mtsu.edu:11662/home.htm The tuition is reasonable, Middle Tennessee is a wonderful place to fly, and they have a pretty well known aerospace department.

I fly DA-20s, which are stick planes, and I did find the left-handed manipulation odd at first, but only briefly. And it is a little different manipulating a stick rather than a yoke.
