The India related discussions are 1% of what they used to be. Did most Indian posters move elsewhere? Or just on to better things in life? I guess they moved on to other Social media options.Although Some have moved on from Aviation too. For several years, those discussions often become — let's jus...Jump to post
Now if you or I were an investor, why would I do that? The only thing valuable Air India has is the real estate and the slots abroad. Everything else would probably be scrapped, but more importantly who will pay off the massive loans. If it is going to be the private parties, then it will be no-no ...Jump to post

As for Pakistan, I also think the opposite, we should drop any pretense with that country and let it decide what it wants. While also making clear that if they start a war with India, we will support India. Next is dropping Turkey from NATO. I agree with both statements. We've had a problem for yea...Jump to post

If it's edge wear, on one side of the tire (the "shoulder" tread if you will), I'm thinking it's a torque-link shimming problem. This would put the tire out of alignment making it wear with an uneven pattern. An imbalance will usually result in a shimmy of some sort. Assuming that it’s at...Jump to post

Hawk, more info needed. Is it one position on a specific aircraft? One position on all aircraft? Or, just a general question on tire wear? And, is it really shoulder wear, or is it edge wear?

The amount of rise above the surrounding surface for a correctly installed briles rivet is only in the area of maybe two to four thousandths of an inch. The crown of the rivet is a smooth domed shaped that is probably negligible in drag. Also, if you ever look closely at a MD10 or MD11, the product...Jump to post
From what I can see from working with composites, carbon fiber has a greater strength per amount of plies than fiberglass, but fiberglass has better thermal properties and maybe impact resistance. We see in areas where impact damage is likely, such as inboard flap lower skins, main gear door skins,...Jump to post
I'm not sure that after 60 you have a lot of chances to work as a pilot. I only ask you not to take offense at me. It seems to me that at this age it is better to do something more relaxed.

What is the reason for Main Wheel Tire Shoulder wear - but on one side only
Is it Imbalance in tire post rethreading.

One is reinforced with carbon fibres and the other reinforced with glass fibres… CFRP has historically been more expensive (I’m not sure of the current situation with automated manufacturing tech) but is also lighter. One major difference is that GFRP is electrically insulative, whereas CFRP is not...Jump to post

Any Aircraft which is Maintenance friendly is welcomed.
Ive worked on only the B737 & B757 last 32 yrs & found both to be good , easy Aircraft to maintain 95% of the time.

The experience I made at the outfit I am working for more than a decade now is, that people went into full time training jobs. While that may be fine for the first 2-5 years, after that the hands-on experience, be it on the aircraft itself or in management roles, will fade. And they will tell the s...Jump to post
