I arrived before noise curfew ended at RAF Mildenhall. Eastern Radar sent me to the hold on the approach at 3,000’, maybe lower. Anyway, I asked for F100 in the hold, telling them, if noise curfew was the reason, why would hold making C-5 p’s screeching noise over East Anglia? They said, fine, the c...Jump to post
You don’t understand Vef and V1 are very close, one second apart. Depending on weight Vmcg may be long past at Vef and V1. The data considers that distance. You’re not over running IF you have taken the first step to stopping by V1 and that presupposes a limiting runway. Any excess runway is cushion.Jump to post
Take-off is engineered, in the latest Part 25 amendment, to accelerate on all engines to Vef (engine failure), one second of recognition at OEI acceleration (that distance), taken the first action to begin the RTO at V1, come to a stop within the available runway. That plan does not overrun. Vef mus...Jump to post

Here’s the FAA 5G website. https://www.faa.gov/5g Nobody is going to crashing short of the runway, either. They might not be landing, but not crashing.

Am I right in thinking this is a problem specifically for the USA, because of the frequencies that have been allocated to 5G in the USA? 5G was rolled out in the UK some months ago without these problems. Yes, pretty much US issue, frequencies, telecoms trying to avoid adding new towers, so using m...Jump to post

Right here! Yes, only engine anti-ice installed. Never an issue, with the TF-39 engines, it probably couldn’t fly above 10,000’ if WAI was installed. It was a big, fat wing and not an abundance of bleed air. The A-10 had no anti-ice, engine or cowls. Ice would build up on the gun, the BDU practice b...Jump to post
At high AOA, rudder was how we controlled and rolled the F-100. Get sloppy at the top of a loop, use aileron instead of rudder to pick up a wing, you could come down the back side 45 degrees off the track you went up. But isn't picking up a wing with a rudder kind of frowned upon in transport categ...Jump to post

Or, maybe Putin tries a different tack to intimidate the West? Shut off gas to Europe, why not? Use internet hackers to close a pipeline or the electric grid in the US, maybe?

May I suggest where business aviation is headed, it surging as never before.

The parallel runways were built too close together to practically permit simultaneous approaches, so without that ability, they can't handle the arrival rate a hub requires. Is this still the case? I was in Cary this morning and saw an E175 and 737 on a parallel approach. I've always heard that par...Jump to post

I’m sure it’s gone, you should have done arcs at 300 KIAS on a high penetration, calculating lead points at 5000 fpm VVI down.Jump to post
High bypass ratio means greater thrust lapse with temp and lower air density. Remember the two planes that the engine was designed for, S-3 and A-10, were designed for low altitude flight. As a general statement I agree. I remember years ago seeing a chart that the turbofan thrust fell off faster w...Jump to post
Looking at this YT video, the presenter has the weather on those earlier flights—VMC or at worst above circling minimums. Very different situation.
Huge difference between a visual pattern on a VMC day over flat terrain and a night circling approach with terrain. A circling pattern requires 25-30 degree banked turns at low level. He could NOT have flown a circle with a pattern like you observed—would have either sight of runway or struck terra...Jump to post
Julian Jorge Bugaj was the first officer (FO) and pilot flying (PF) . This is highly significant. Flying a left pattern from the right seat, in marginal VFR, at night is a recipe for disaster. He would have been attempting to fly a VFR pattern without being able to see the airport. When MDW is land...Jump to post

All rather strange, FDX doesn’t own A320s, no apparent threat updates.Jump to post
On the A320 I would not reject in this scenario. A high speed RTO at more than 100kts can be hazardous due to the potential for an overrun and there are just very few defined failures that will lead to an RTO in this situation. Also, the human brain is not capable of noticing and processing a singl...Jump to post
I don't think modern airplanes have it. (But that is my uneducated opinion since I am only familiar with the 320) The closest function on the 320 is GPWS override. On the 1900, the Gear Horn override was used every flight. Since the condition which caused the gear horn to go off was insufficient po...Jump to post
I was riding out on the crew bus at PHIK with a KC-10 crew doing an A/R trainer there. No joke, they were taxiing BACK IN when I was starting engines for somewhere west.

It was the engineer’s job to silence the horn on the 727. Not taught anytime before the captain on your first flight growled, “why didn’t silence the horn”.Jump to post
Some things really are as simple as it sounds. Similar to resetting the Master Warning or Master Caution when you're working an issue but it'll come back on if something else breaks, by pressing the gear horn button you're telling the jet "Yeah, yeah. I know" and if anything else changes ...Jump to post

No, not necessarily, depends on the day turbulence can be at most flight levels. I seen smooth rides at F290 and miserable ones at F470. Sometimes going up or down helps, sometimes not. Higher does help with weather deviations, making them easier or just over the top.Jump to post
It’s one reason we prohibit night VFR operations except for recurrency training at home in good VMC, 2000-5. It’s also an IS-BAO SMS requirement to address any night VFR operations.Jump to post
Thank you for sharing the link.
