Never liked the ATACS. Briskheat and heatcon; six of one, half-dozen of the other. The Heatcon doesn't go tits up as much as the Briskheat, but it has its quirks. I always did like using the Briskheat Table-Top controllers, small, easy to work with, only drawback was, everything was manual and you ...Jump to post
We ended up developing our own for radomes and tricky TR repairs. Everything else we use Heatcon. Talk to your tooling engineer about what YOU the techs need to do your job correctly and efficiently. I’m on the engineering, repair design side. However when we sat down with our mechanics and got them...Jump to post
Why is Vasu the man? Who’s to say this wasn’t originated on the B6 side? Arguably the most respected network planning guy in the business... look what he has done in SEA, LAX, and now the northeast. Now with better feed, their int'l business will be much more viable Can you imagine a dinner party w...Jump to post
Would a current Mesa pilot be able to bid into those birds? Like if I’m flying CRJs for Mesa with Eagle branding and if I was the highest seniority FO/Captain in the company and really wanted to live in Cincinnati. Could I bid the FO/captain spot and Mesa Train me? If you read the attached press re...Jump to post

- A340: I can't find any diagrams or other info, but given it is basically the same aircraft as the A330 I would guess the architecture is similar but with more pumps since it has more engines. Yes, the general layout is basically the same, but with the same amount of pumps. Eng 1 and Eng 4 drive t...Jump to post

Would the engine be scrapped completely or would it be examined on an anatomical level to see if it is salvageable? More photos here So, that's how Scottish planes mate,...Jump to post

To me, TBM = tunnel boring machine. I had an interesting mental picture to go with this statement, that is for sure.
What about the GE PT6 clone? I see small 35 passenger turboprops coming back with 135 carriers. I think the JSX model is going to become more popular and we will see more operators with similar Opperations set up. I flew a TBM from DFW to Houston cheaper than AA and no TSA to worry about.Jump to post

I actually just did this flight on the 24th! EGE-ASE to take the rare opertunity I drove up from Denver to do so. 21 minute flight total! Runway 7 departure to add to the fun! Which of those airports is easiest to get off and right back on after checking in with agents? Never been and trying to pre...Jump to post
FedEx fly's a 757 from TIJ-SAN five days a week. Takes about 10 minutes. I can watch the whole flight from my house. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX69/history/20200516/0008Z/MMTJ/KSAN Wow.

Come to PBI - it has the same exact problem. Many of the excess rental cars have been moved to the paved long-term parking area, but there are hundreds more still parked on a grass lot adjacent to the airport. There must be thousands of rental cars parked bumper-to-bumper, door handle-to-door handl...Jump to post

Reading the link that sure sounds scary as hell! Equally scary, a captain of a wide body aircraft with only 400 hours in the type??? It’s a newish aircraft to the fleet and the world for that matter. There are going to be captains with low hours, also they don’t have to be a first officer for years...Jump to post
How about the second AN 225 built with composite wings, 4 GE-90 engines, and a 787 cockpit? The GE90 is quite obsolete now. How about two GE9X (or Trent XWB-97 which powers the A350-1000)? No way - if the aircraft experiences single engine failure, there is no way it would be able to take off on a ...Jump to post
Nor the Trent 7000 ... I would've assumed that there are patents like this one: https://patents.google.com/patent/US6360528B1/en that keep Airbus from using them. But it could also be that Airbus focused on other methods to reduce noise and meet regulations. Chevrons, like winglets, need a lot of f...Jump to post
