The Gulfstream QRH on page EA-15 has a procedure for an Ess DC Bus fault: "Essential DC Bus Fault Indicated". In the step 2 block (if the initial DC RESET switch light push causes the DC RESET light to re-illuminate), item B tells us to pull and reset the ESSENTIAL DC BUS FEEDER circuit br...Jump to post
Are you sure about the locations of throttle, lateral and vertical mode annunciations? I just looked at a Honeywell on YT and it shows A/T left, Lateral left center, Vertical modes, right center. Is IAS in white or magenta? Yes, I am sure about the FMA columns for the GIV. The A/T's are in the cent...Jump to post
Taking off and right after lift off at 400 feet, you press FLCH. I see that the A/T PFD FMA center column (throttles column) shows FLCH and the right side of the FMA (vertical mode) shows IAS. The manual shows an 'IAS 'in the throttles column of the FMA but I don't see how you get that to display?Jump to post
The GIV avionics manual is a little confusing to me. It says if I press FLCH that IAS will appear in the PFD's FMA (vertical mode) column. When I press FLCH I see FLCH in the FMA, yet the manual talks about IAS as a pitch mode. So, how do you get the IAS mode to display?Jump to post
I think I don't need my blue line #7. All I need to do is just look into what area that cyan landing weight vertica line is crossing that red line. Just looking at what area those lines cross will tell me what initial FL I can do. As for the TOW that is just calculated by adding the landing weight t...Jump to post
Does anyone know how to figure in the altitude lines on the GIV Twin Engine Plight Planning Chart? I can't see how that line intersects with another line.
Is there ever a time when you would climb out flying a DP, and use VNAV and Flight Level Change together?
I use VNAV to climb out and fly the DP with altitude constraints at each waypoint. If I want to climb straight up to what I have set in my altitude select window, I use Flight Level Change.
7,000 fpm is on the high side for the MD-90. It would have to be pretty empty (like on a first or early test flight). Typical climb rates at normal loads were more like around 3,000 to 3,500 fpm depending on density altitude. I was an MD-90 instructor for McDonnell Douglas at the Long Beach airport ...Jump to post
It's hard to say which flap settings were used during the approach. Certainly not all positions are used. So we don't really know if they initially extended to flaps 1 or flaps 2. Very small difference between the two. We also don't really know if they landed with flaps 30 or flaps 40. Love those Bo...Jump to post
Damn, that's hard to spot...what eyes...my guess is it's just an aerodynamic fairing to reduce drag in that area.
>There used to be a video that has since been made private, but there was this one dude a few years back who took on a challenge to learn to fly the 737 in a month, and I definitely remember him calling out "Gear down, flaps 15." I'm not sure if procedures vary between airlines, but I defi...Jump to post
I always thought the DC-10 had a more solid feel to it. Perhaps that is just an illusion. I was a flight engineer on the L-1011. I rode many times in the jump seat on DC-10's and B-747's. The DC-10 had the quietest cockpit of all the wide bodies (built in the US anyway). From a noise perspective it...Jump to post
>From a bit of 737 sim time I’ve had in this is a standard call: > at glide slope intercept: Pilot Flying calls “gear down, flaps 15” That doesn't sound correct for a Boeing. You want flaps 15 once you're in the terminal area and you also have a target speed. As you come up on the glideslope, at one...Jump to post
I think you're referring to what we call aerodynamic braking. There are some pilots who believe this technique helps them to land and stop in a shorter distance. I was a flight engineer on the L-1011 in another life. There was an Eastern Airlines captain who believed in this landing technique flying...Jump to post
I'm building a G1000 panel for my Xplane. I'm having a hard time finding a 4:3 ratio 10 inch screen for the PFD and the MFD. Anyone have any sources?
Here are those two screen shots I hard trouble loading previously, showing my W&B app. These are links to my Dropbox account. Hawker 850: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ble3va9w1onm9z/Hawker850.jpg?dl=0 Citation V: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nikytgbtibgz4wp/Citation%205.jpg?dl=0Jump to post
Yeah, I might have to call Cessna next week. Loadmaster...that would be for big cargo aircraft, right? You work for UPS or FedEx or are in the Air Force? I'm attaching a screen shot of my weight and balance app for business jets. One is for the Hawker 850 (which has a very complex weight and balance...Jump to post
I’m trying to do a sample weight and balance exercise but I can’t find anything online about typical BEW, CG and Moment numbers to start off with. I have the AFM and the POH but neither give typical BEW numbers (BEW, CG, mom). I’d also like to see a seating chart so I know how many seats and what th...Jump to post
I finally found the defination in the Hawker AFM (I guess I just missed it before).
Minimum Operating Weight
The minimum weight at which the gust criteria for structural
integrity has been shown. Flight operations will not be
conducted below this weight.
One other questions if I may (rather than start a new thread): I see that the Hawker 850 XP has a Minimum Operating Weight limit. But I saw no definition of this term. I'm guessing this weight limit means one cannot operate the aircraft below that weight at any time? The reason I make that seemingly...Jump to post
I was reading through the Hawker 850 XP AFM, specifically the weight and balance section. There is a Zone A in the upper right corner of the CG envelope that states "Usable only with ventral tank fuel". I don't understand that statement? Does that mean if you have ventral tank fuel that yo...Jump to post
I did some weight and balance work for the Citation II and V business jets. Their AFM's provided me with all of the percent of mac info I needed: LEMAC = 261.56 MAC = 80.98 fwdMac = 18% aftMac = 30% Now I'm doing the same thing for the King Air B200 but it's POH does not provide the fwdMac or the af...Jump to post

1. Yes. 2. IPEPE is not a part of the ILS approach. On the profile view the asterisk next to IPEPE at 980 sends you to a note that says "LOC ONLY." Lastly, your verbiage of "When the runway came into view, I called the tower and we were cleared to circle right and do a visual landing...Jump to post
I have a question about the KMEM (Memphis) ILS 27 approach. It has to do with IPEPE way point. I was recently flying this approach as an SIC on a Citation II. We were flying a LOC approach to runway 27 with circle to land to 18R. When the runway came into view, I called the tower and we were cleared...Jump to post
