Or phase of flight?
I think Airbus for the 320 has 8 or 9 phases of flight.
I heard that in some major US carriers(though could be outdated information at this point), taxiing is the responsibility entirely of the captain. Granted, you don't have to parallel park or hill start an airplane and just keep in the centerline, things like braking distance and turning radius may ...Jump to post

Even though the normal flight envelope of a typical airliner doesn't have any notable amount of G The normal flight envelope of a transport category aircraft is -1g to 2.5g clean and 0g to 2g with gear / flaps and slats extended.

The FFS can simulate Gs but not sustained Gs While doing upset recovery training the g meter in the flight deck will indicate 0g when you unload the aircraft but you don’t feel the 0g after you reach the limits of the platform articulation.

Very informative. I found it interesting that DL has 3 A350 sims. I wonder if that's hint about future orders Delta has 2 Level D A350 FFS and 1 Level 7 A350 FTD not 3 A350 sims. The FFS are what most people think of as simulators. Level D simulators can be used to certify landings. Level C simulat...Jump to post

When takeoff performance is critical enough to require a Packs Off take off, I leave the APU running after engine start and the Packs continue running off APU bleed.

From what I hear 121 pilots are not very desirable in the corporate or part 91 or part 135 world anyway. The amount of work that needs to be done before a private flight or corporate charter flight is not something 121 pilots are used to. There is a lot of hustle that is done before ever stepping fo...Jump to post

The flight that diverted for an onboard fire yesterday…. That’s a straight “fire - need nearest airport now” and go. No talking with dispatch.
Get on the ground ASAP. Call dispatch, soc supervisor, chief pilot, union rep, and everyone else after you’re on the ground.
I need flaps full. That will be an additional $20, please insert coins.Jump to post
Once a diversion begins, ATC will issue a new clearance for the flight to follow. When you divert for a medical emergency or weather at destination you’re already been in discussions with the dispatcher. Either via love notes (iMessage over the iPad to the dispatcher thru inflight WiFi or text messa...Jump to post

About 99% of the problems I run into are solved by doing the CTRL-ALT-DEL to the component that is generating the ECAM caution.
Pull circuit breaker X99. wait 10 seconds, push circuit breaker X99, wait for component to reinitialize, ECAM goes away.

I think it’s all coordinated with the other two airports.
JFK doesn’t change runway configuration without coordination with LGA and EWR.
I think if you check ATIS for all three airports throughout the day youll get the bigger picture.
If it were economically feasible Im thinking they would have tried it by now. Feel free to start your own airline. Apply for the air carrier certificate and recruit the people to operate your airline. The bare minimum is a director of operations, a chief pilot, and a director of maintenance and 1 ai...Jump to post
All this does is expand the pool of pilots that Southwest can draw from.

Balance is probably not as big of an issue for the 170 than it is for a CRJ. When we converted the 70Y configuration of a CRJ-700 to a 9F/56Y configuration, we had to temporarily add weight in the form of a concrete crash barricade attached to the forward jackpoint at the front of the a/c to keep it...Jump to post
The issue with Aspen has always been go around performance. As far as I know the 175 doesn’t have the go around performance. There is no aircraft that is capable of single engine go around. You’re committed to landing after the FAF. If we lost an engine inside the FAF the only option is to land. If ...Jump to post
I think that is a flight sim issue. The charted ILS 02 approach plate doesn’t show a CF02 When you load the ILS 02 it will try to link the approach to the STAR with an APPR VIA PESEX. Which then loads the box with PT422 PESEX NETVO without the discontinuity. If you do no transition then it loads the...Jump to post
The box will fly exactly what is in the box. It’s incapable of thinking. The star ends at PESEX so should link right up with PESEX on the ILS 02. When you choose no transition you’re telling the box not to connect the two procedures so it puts in a discontinuity and keeps the procedures separate. PT...Jump to post
GPS altitude is altitude above a reference plane of a gravitational earth model, not any physical terrain.

Not knowing what your goals in aviation are, while you can get your certificates without attending an aviation college via Part 61 and Part 141 flight schools.

A dipping sonar is nothing like a sonobuoy. - there is nothing “disposable” about a dipping sonar.

They’re special...Jump to post
After rereading the thread, a sonobuoy is not the same thing as a dipping sonar. And it appears you’re using the terms interchangeably. But are asking whether a quadcopter can carry a dipping sonar at less cost than a helo. Sonobuoys are expendable, one time use items, that contain their own battery...Jump to post
There is a difference between sonobuoys and a dipping sonar. Sonobuoys are not all the same. All sonobuoy types are needed depending on what you’re trying to do.

The LAMPs helo is more than just a sonobuoy carrier. There is a lot of capability in the helo that a drone can’t replace. The helo does and can do limited sonobuoy data processing independent of the ship. But the helo does offload the processing to the ship since the computer processing capabilities...Jump to post
They’re probably not real sandbags. Instead it is a rectangular rubber puck that weighs 50lbs. Stackable I didn’t know mainline aircraft used them but it’s common for regional jets to get “sandbags”.
