RE: What Is This By The Window Of This TU-154?

This appears to be similar to the configuration of the evacuation slide on Fokker 28 aircraft at door 1R. On the F28, the slide pack is contained inside a "cabinet" adjacent to the door. In an evacuation, the door is opened and the slide pack is manually pulled from the cabinet. Now it is lying acro...

Ready Jet Go Airlines?

This company is hiring management in anticipation of a Part 121 start up.

They are out of Lithia Springs, GA which I know was the home of Transmeridian. Is there a connection?

Anyone know anything about this outfit?

Thanks in advance.

Wet leased?

So Pace/Hooters crews are flying these aircraft on AQ routes?

Interesting. Surprised the AQ unions would allow this.

RE: A380 Evacuation - What Are The Odds Of Success

Why are the regulatory agencies permitting the slides to be "PRE-inflated?" At least in the USA, the requirement is that pax and crew NOT to know the location of useable exits before an evacuation test. If they are pre-inflating slides, the crew and pax are going to know/see/realize the locations of...

RE: E190 Question...

I cannot speak specifically to the E-190. But what you observe is fairly common. You will see it on other aircraft too: Left side is designed for boarding/deplaning, so the doors are larger. Right side is most often used for catering/servicing of the aircraft. Less of a need to have large numbers of...
