Re: Telescoping Control Columns

Autopilot computer also controls acceleration and braking. Would you take issue with non-moving pedals? Or would you rely on other instruments for those... some actions cannot be directly mapped. maybe i extended it too far. but it is still valid for the PF monitoring. but probably valid for some a...

Re: Telescoping Control Columns

Re: Telescoping Control Columns

.......... but i still think that to see and feel what exactly is the second pilot doing, by simply observing the movement of the stick or following it by touch can be useful. typically when dealing with control problems, bad weather etc. isn't this ignoring the paradigm disparity of flying the pla...

Re: Telescoping Control Columns

force feedback is not a correct name. i think that the most people talking about the need of the feedback are really talking about movement feedback (feel the movement from the second pilot). there is no need to feel the control force. read: https://safetyfirst.airbus.com/app/themes/mh_newsdesk/doc...

Re: A380 was success for Airbus, says new CEO

Re: B 797 - One pilot cockpit?

current computers that are capable of very limited problem solving have weight more than all cargo and passangers and consume more power than engines can produce

Re: Man vs machine; are we ready to replace pilots completely?

Do not underestimate progress in computer science, but also do not overestimate progress in aviation industry. In 20 years, we will have 787 Max, iteration of current tech. In 50 years, we will have still the same tube with wings, still a 797 derivates. If-else programming cannot do any problem solv...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

the discussion is a little bit monotonic, so as a person who does not know abou aircraft certification procedures, I want to ask experts... to simplify the question, it looks that 737max cerfification procedure was somehow “simplified” based on the similarity with NG..did they test aircraft behavior...

Re: Airline job interview

I understand what they want to get, but i am questioning their methods. This completely lacks some finesse, it is like a hit a head with brick. they will get both false positives and false negatives.

Hi all, my friend (ex-military transport pilot) is currently looking for a new job and told me about one job interview (relatively large EU-based LCC) that I personally find very problematic... There was a group of candidates monitored also by the psychologist. They were asked to humiliate another c...

Re: Lion Air 737MAX8 Crashed Jakarta to Pangal Pinang

Hi, my first question here....also not a native speaker, so sorry for my language I assume that the information about the problems on previous flights together with the repair report was correctly passed to the flight crew, so they were mentally prepared that the fix may be insufficient and may occu...
