RE: Typhoon Vs Sukhoi

These stories are media proapaganda.

Years ago, there was an american pilot bashing Indian Air force, and one of the strangest things he said in my opinion was that he described Su-30 as having a slow roll rate.

RE: FAA Rules Regarding Hours Flown Per Day

I believe some 747 achieved 18 hours of average flight time per day. 737s I believe have flown up to 12. They would achieve even more if there was quicker handling on the ground and no waiting before takeoff

I would like to post a similar question, how many hours can pilots fly a day

RE: Airbus To Design Electric 100-seater (FG Article)

I think having a diesel-electric propulsion is almost impossible on aircraft. You need a diesel, which is not light, than you need a generator and then you need a electric motor.

Even having diesel directly driving a prop, is way heavier than turbine engines.

I also believe that both airplanes have excessive range capability
