Re: CNN - Changing cruise altitudes could cut climate impact in half

Probably in extreme cases, going from 30kft to 43kft Nope. The altitude changes required would lead to a minuscule amount of additional fuel burn. The crux is giving ATC (or the crews) the tools to detect layers of low humidity, so they can avoid contrail-forming conditions, or at least fly at an a...

Re: Jetblue senior leadership meeting at LGB

Q&A style happening now. People are pissed. The pilots are going off. The elephant in the room is the huge loss with flight hours. People are asking why don’t we approach the city again, but every knows that’s a lost cause. What huge loss? Hours in base stay the same. If you are cutting the num...

RE: Damn Poor Pilots!

I hear what you are saying BLUESKY, at 2000 hours I've kind of written off the airlines for now. I am lucky enough to work for a company that owns an Airplane, so half of my job is flying the boss around. Works out pretty well and keeps me flying. As others have mentioned, going international seems ...

RE: Garuda Airlines Crash -- Video

Lets put the "engine running" thing to rest. NOOO, I do not think they are running. That is not even an engine sound. It does sound like the Hydraulic packs are still running. If youv'e ever heard them on without the engine's running, its sounds exactly like what you hear on the video. I thing they ...

RE: 2 Planes On The Same Runway - Is This Legal?

I have actually landed with an airplane still on the runway that had landed seconds before me. This is legal, yes the tower allowed it, as long as there is 2000' of distance between the two part 91 aircraft. Airliners and prat 135 charters cannot do this.

RE: Cessna 421 Pilots

Well, I actually talked to a pilot that owned a 421C and asked him the same question as above. He said he did perform engine outs and actually feathered and shut down the engines. It's not something he did all the time. Furthermore he said the airplane performed very well on one engine. He also note...

While on a TACA flight into Buenos Aires two years ago, I was envited to the jump seat by the Captain. I was allowed to stay during landing and I saw them do 280kts till about 6,000MSL and then started reducing.

RE: Aircraft Vs Race Cars: Temps, Wear And Tear, Etc

There is a saying, "one flight hour a day keeps the mechanic away" this applies to flying your plane often as it is better on the airplane than sitting. On piston engines at least, runnig a 100% power all the time would reduce the life of the engine. Generally, 100% is for take-off and it must be re...

RE: Cessna 421 Pilots

Thanks for the info. I think my instructor will probably not know this and discourage me from trying it.

411A, What about shock cooling the engine with your second option??

Cessna 421 Pilots

As I was saying, before my thread was removed by the moderator, are there any pilots out there that actually practice single engine operations with the 421?? If so, how is this done without hurting the geared engine??

Thanks
