Ok, now my few thoughts. I was basically a daily user of the site for 16 years. I used to be a regular member in the forums but since my airline job kept me busy I only looked at photos which I really enjoyed. Now since the upgrade I found myself to never ever look at it again. The presentation is j...Jump to post

i think 500 dollar are not enough money for a good logo. usually if you contact a company for designing a logo it´s worth much more....Jump to post
yes i make grammar and spelling mistakes. to bad, and thats after 13 years of school. well, the grammar mistakes are not that big of a problem. i only make them when i want to express myself in a special manner. that´s for whats german famous. if you are able to use the german language correctly (i ...Jump to post
sure the prop is feathered! on ground you actually never move the power levers out of ground idle unless you are about to take off. when taxiing, you control the blade angle with the power levers wich is called beta mode. if you move the power levers over a detent position you go into reverse! that ...Jump to post
Some mistakes there british767! there you can see how difficult german can get with all those causes. i don´t know the exact grammar, i just speak it because it´s my native language. ich gehe in der stadt. wrong would mean: i walk in the town. ich gehe in DIE stadt. correct now means: i go into the ...Jump to post
are you sure the power levers are at flight idle?? i pretty sure they must be in GROUND idle!!
i just became a first class member!!! i like how i can look to the pictures in fit screen mode.
what are the other advantages? do you think it was worth the money?
i also like to post something here on the forum. but most of the times i only read posts!
Well that is a good point DLMHT and 707 guy! I always trust the de-ice guys since I noticed, that they get really good training and are well informed. But I know all the information always by myself too. I mean to know the difference between type I and type <acronym title="Fuijan Airlines (China)">I...Jump to post
Hi there! As far as I know (I know because I flew with swiss pilots who have allready JAR) PIC U/S is time logged when A Co pilot flies the aircraft, so he is the flying pilot. This time then becomes PIC US time when I, the captain, sign it in his logbook. You need a certain amound of PIC US time to...Jump to post
I fly sometimes quite long without the autopilot. But I usually have the flight director switched on. The Autopilot mmay also be inoperative, but the flight dirocter is a must. You can not fly the aircraft without the flight director (according to the <acronym title="Melbourne - Tullamarine (MEL / Y...Jump to post
It´s the same with the car! If you shout down an hot engine in the evening with cold temperatuers outside, there will be condense water inside. And that condense water with some dirt particles will freeze inside the engine walls. Aand then when you start the engine the ice becomse water vapour. That...Jump to post
I´m Captain for air A!ps (air alps) in Austria.

I fly the Dornier 328 and those spoilers are only ground spoilers!
Some Dorniers have them some don´t. And you arm them with the little butten on the central pedestral next to the rudder unlimited swith.
But those ground spoilers are not the roll spoilers. They are independent.
I´m getting next week an old 1993 Jeep Cherokee. It has a 4l, 6 cylinder engine with 180 hp.
I´m just wondering now if it can make the same "bubbling" sound like a V8 if you change the exhaust pipe (muffler)?
How does the sound change? Has anyone experience with that?
I started my training in 1994 with the glider pilot licence here in Austria! In 1995 I was the first time in California and I took my private pilot licence in a small school. So I came back every year in the summer holidays to take another course until I was finished in 1997. After military service ...Jump to post
Well it´s a nice car. But I like the old design of the Jaguars much better. They look just flat on the street - like a Jaguar!
The XJ Type follows the tradition.
Have you ever seen that car with big aluminium wheels. Just great.
Looks elegant and sporty.
Like B747skipper explained correctly, there is a transiton level and a transition altitude. The transition altitude is for an specific airport always the same for example 3000 ft. in Amsterdam. (It depends on the terrain surrounding the airport). This transition altitude is always depicted on the de...Jump to post
Thank you guys for your replies. I thought that it works like Jetguy explained. Well AA_Cam, those engines are running just think about it. In Europe it can happen that there are also aircafts waiting, but never more then 3 to 4. If there is one runway in use only every 30 to 50 seconds an aircraft ...Jump to post
I??m just wondering why there is no start up control or something like that in the USA? I think it is ridiculous just to start up your engine and taxi to the runway. This is stupid waste of fuel. Just look at this picture: <br><center><font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL, Helvetica, Geneva"><a...Jump to post
TO SSTjumbo!!!!!: You don´t fly a jet like: Power = Altitude and Pitch = Speed!!! That thing would end up in an unstabilized approach! One thing to remember in Transport category aircrafts: Pitch = Glide angle to the touch down zone (has to be stabil, only very small corrections) Power = only speedJump to post
Well, first it´s a huge difference. At the first place you think that the flightsim has nothing to do with the real thing. But after some time (well just a few minutes when you fly the aircraft) it becomes the same. There is really nothing great about if you flew the simulator proffesionally (mainta...Jump to post
Jetpilot, since when don´t have a De-Ice system?
What about Turbo prop airplanes with boots on it. This is a De ice system.
Anti Ice: To prevent ice build up.
De-Ice: you let build up ice on it and then you remove it by boots or liquid (some small airplanes have that)
Hi! I did all my flight training in California. Thereafter I flew for parachute jumper and stuff like this. When I came back to Europe I had about 750TT and 100 Multi. I took the Eurpean Licence (just a written test and a checkride), and I got a Job in a Learjet 31A. Flew it for about one year bevor...Jump to post
