Question about cockpit audio warning

I was watching some windshear videos on YouTube and then I started thinking: would additional audio warning be helpful in reducing pilot error or just pilot load in general? Let say that a pilot lower their flaps to 15, then there's a "FLAP DOWN 15" audio warning just to remind the pilot t...

Re: Size of speed brakes[spoilers] on airliners?

On the 777, not only do they all deploy at different times, but there's the one spoiler panel on each wing that deploys at a smaller angle compared to the rest. I wonder how they determine that. I can't tell you what they were thinking... but the spoiler/speedbrake schedule is actually quite wild o...

Re: Does the 2nd gen 777 have any exterior lighting differences from 1st gen?

There are exterior LED retrofits available for the 777, unsure if Boeing ever made changes to factory production. The 737 lights were actually upgraded during the NG’s run in 2015. For me, it's the easiest way to found out how new the NG is, by looking at the wing strobe. If it's blink slowly, then...
