The world will never be the same!
Devastating, RIP all the victims. That being said I fly many times to LESB and at least in the summer there should be ATC service. Traffic some times is quite dangerous due to the mix of schools, student pilots, ULMs and GA traffic. All of them flying at a bunch of different speeds and altitudes plu...Jump to post
Op you are so brave to call the company out without knowing what's going on for sure. There Could be lots of reasons why this plane is being done differently then what you are used to.. Now since you are so brave go ahead and post your bems Id here as well.. I'm waiting Shouldn’t you be debating th...Jump to post

For me BA's "Aviators, British Airways To Fly to Serve" goose bumps!!
Was it something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjv3xBB-HmY Go to 5:56 Well, the swinging in the video seemed pretty similar to what my mom was describing. But the part I'm really concerned about was the downward nose pitch on QR573, which I didn't see in the video. Also, A7-AHJ encount...Jump to post
Sensors damaged by FOD. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/damaged-sensor-ethiopian-airlines-737-max-triggered-fatal/story?id=62139860 I doubt it. The reason I doubt it is that pilots on both flights lost both AoA and airspeed indication accuracy. You can't catch two sensors with one bird... Same stor...Jump to post
Impressive analysis, thanks for sharing. Congratulations to Qantas Management Team for such an example of strategic thinking. Makes one think twice if Project Sunrise will go the same way!Jump to post
According to CNN "Gebeyehu Fikadu, an eyewitness to Sunday's fatal crash about two-hour drive south of the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, told CNN that the plane was "swerving and dipping" and belching smoke as it came down. "I was in the mountain nearby when I saw the plane ...Jump to post
I think they're preparing for a (needed) rebranding.Jump to post
I have a N-registered airplane in Spain since 2013. Maintenance bureaucracy is easier and because IR is more efficient to maintain (the main difference is FAA accepts automatism and modern navigation while EASA don’t). I’ve got both PPL-IR EASA and FAA but while for FAA it took me a month, EASA a ye...Jump to post

No, just a poor choice.
You can fly on a SEP like the SR22 without a problem if you prepare yourself accordingly for the mission. More than 1.000hours on the Cirrus and if there is any chance that we’ll be flying over liquid stuff, I’ll always put on the survival equipment first. Dinghy, lifevests and on. Off course the mo...Jump to post

Even if I don't know how much future the project has, I find the Branding proposal and the case quite interesting though.
I feel like Brexit is the new Y2K. Some of the stories about ATM cards are a joke...like the global systems would stop working for British cards only. And this nonsense is being retweeted by people who should have some semblance of intelligence. :checkmark: Exactly, well said. It seems that Iberia ...Jump to post

We cannot compare Vueling/Level with Iberia nor BA. Barcelona is what Milano is for Italy to say the least. Strong industrial activity and right now a strong developed tech ecosystem. When I say BCN is under served is not a political statement, is because I fly 140 days a year and I’m able to see wi...Jump to post

If I’d were them I’d definitely open a second hub in BCN. We’re lacking of decent Business products as well as decent service. It could be an interesting growth vector. May be splitting east and west from BCN/MAD as you’ve got a strong corridor betweeb both cities as well as heavy maintenance facili...Jump to post
In Europe I don’t think it makes sense taking into account Eurocontrol taxes and fuel prices. I have a friend that recently jumped from flying First Class as main Business transport and a Cirrus as a leisure plane, to a Citation Mustang as the Business tool while keeping the Cirrus as a fun hop.

Single pilot Citations are one gnarly airplane to fly. I am shocked that The FAA still allows some business jets to be flown single pilot. Are those regulators stock owners of Cessna, Cirrus, etc? Makes you wonder... I have more than 1000 hours on my SR22 G5, I even crossed the Atlantic with it and...Jump to post

I’m quite a frequent AA flyer on the BCN-MIA and MIA-GUA and as far as from now, I’d never switch to another airline. Their Business product is great, the brand is surprisingly well managed compared to the industry average and people is professional and prepared. Proud customer here.Jump to post
I landed in Goose Bay back in december 2013 on my way to Spain from Minnesota on board our SR22. Very nice ground crew and pilot facilities. And such an impressive infrastructure! Massive runways and taxiways. Weather wise it was warmer than Iqaluit but still -20sºC... quite hard winter there. Anoth...Jump to post
Interesting topic! I'd like to add another one on top if xjetflyer2001 allows me... At that time how crews managed weather issues? Specially under night conditions. And I'd like to share an experience of mine. Crossing the Atlantic with our SR22 on December 13' was pretty the same situation. The Iri...Jump to post
What about the big legacy airlines that survived thanks to public constant bailouts... List is long but (not) distinguished.

I flew my SR22 from Duluth, MN to Sabadell Spain. It was quite an adventure, specially due to weather as we flew on december all across the North Atlantic. Cirrus itself recommended a Ferry Pilot, Mike. What a great guy. We had a big time together specially when flying between Greenland and Iceland ...Jump to post
Hi All, Just came across this article from Courtney Miller from Bombardier.

What about cabin crew? If I understand it correctly when gear come up, the emergency lights on doors and emergency exita turn off accompanied by an aural warning. Please correct me if I'm wrong! (Sorry in that case btw!)
PS: haha the wedding thing.. you killed me.
Hi, I just came around this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZDTviYUP5M FR1585 from Fuerteventura to Leeds Bradford.

This is more like a wondering rather than a top valuable post but let me throw it anyway... ;) As we have offices in TLV I find myself flying the route quite often.

IMHO it seems an intelligent business move. LEBL is growing fast and is clearly a top-notch growing market for Asian routes.

On normally aspirated (not turbocharged) GA planes like the CIRRUS SR22 is quite usual to fly between 8.000ft and 12.000ft. I would say that you can't feel big differences up there, as the FAA's oxygen limitations (my advice is to respect them, specially at night) are a good safety margin. However i...Jump to post
LESO - San Sebastián (Spain) on the outbound leg in the VOR approach for RWY 22, you enter into Biarritz (LFBZ) airspace. LESO ATC handoffs almost the whole approach to the french controller. It's a quite interesting procedure and one of the most beautiful approaches in SpainJump to post
