If they're in clouds with no visual reference and instrument failure, how would anybody be able to tell up from down? Gravity. They aren't in orbit - 5,000ft or so does not change your body's perception of gravity. The notion that they could have ended up INVERTED or pointing towards the ground lik...Jump to post
Innsbruck, Dubrovnik, Geneva, and Nice are a few of my favorites.Jump to post
The last time I played was while flying a Cessna 172... That was about a year ago. Anyone else ever try playing Pokemon Go airborne? When the brosband is driving, I turn it on so Feebis can get more candies so I can evolve it. I always get a pop-up message saying "YOU ARE WALKING TOO FAST!!!&q...Jump to post
And we left Cape Town!

I have flown on Virgin several times and never had any problems with finding overhead space. I usually sit towards the rear of the aircraft. Just make sure you board in the first couple people of your boarding group and you will be fine.
Enjoy the flight! I have never had a bad Virgin experience.
This did happen to me. :x I was on VS26 coming across the pond and the woman in front of me decided to take her shoes off and stick her feet between her seat and the window so they were practically in my face!! Besides the awful smell it was not a pleasant sight for 1.5 hours. Some people have no re...Jump to post

I will wear my pilots uniform! Don't have much of a choice this Valentines day...

My target is to get access to a real life (not simulation) international charts (those are in use by commercial pilots) just to analyze and understand them. How commercial pilots get their charts ? Do they use Jeppesen too ? If pilots work for an airline, charter operator or suchlike, they'll have ...Jump to post
http://www.skybrary.aero/index.php/Inst ... ystem_(ILS) I think this link should help you understand how an ILS works. Please ask if it does not make sense. The 480 is the Descision Height, which is in MSL or Mean Sea Level (distance above the sea) The 300 is the Descision Height in AGL or above gro...Jump to post
He bentzur, I will do my best at answering your questions... 1. No , the glideslope does not get "disconnected" when the pilot is hand flying. As long as the localizer is tuned and displayed in the appropriate NAV source, the glideslope will be displayed on the Pilots PFD (Primary Flight D...Jump to post
LOL! I guess that means the first flight was in Iraq and not North Carolina. Iraqi aviation has sure come a long way since then!Jump to post
"everyone" is so vague. I don't particularly notice anyone angry in the US. Maybe you are one of those people who just sees things from an angry point of view. People can and do. Try to relax and stop and smell the roses (as they say). I agree! I am happy and everyone around me seems for ...Jump to post
I can not stress this enough: if both Celine Dion and Taylor Swift went on tour in Uzbekistan and got lost for a couple of dozen decades, I would not be heartbroken. That would give me a great reason to visit Uzbekistan! :) I might join the Dion/Swift Uzbekistan tour ;) I will see you there! :lol: ...Jump to post
Well lucky you for losing your aviation interest so early on. You should be happy! At least it'll hopefully steer you away from becoming a pilot which is a lousy job these days and has been for around two decades now. Miserable lifestyle is to blame. Little time home with your family and the pay do...Jump to post
I'll tell my story. I was in my last year of residency and I was flying on DL from JFK to SFO for an interview. As I boarded this 752, I noticed a very old woman in the first row of Y on oxygen. Her mouth was hanging open and her tongue was hanging out one side and she was obviously in a depressed ...Jump to post
Maybe because black males statistically commit more crimes than white males... BUT, this does not give police officers the right to treat black males any less than white males. Yet, they do. Where is your outrage there? Oh, and read this before rehashing your tired trope: https://www.americanprogre...Jump to post
Yes, we never hear stories about white policemen shooting unarmed white people in the US, even though it most certainly happens. Yet when black men are shot by white policemen in the US it makes headlines here too. Ok, Capt Obvious, how about the ststistics that show black men are 3 times more like...Jump to post
So the Gulfstream was not based at SWF? I am interested because I spend a lot of time at SWF and I know there are a few 650's based there.Jump to post
Would you happen to know the tail number of the G650ER which flew the polar route?
