Departure Attain as much altitude as possible before reaching residential areas. Use full length of runway when able. I don't understand. Why would a pilot " use full length of runway when able " [that's one heck of a derate!] if trying to " attain as much altitude as possible before...Jump to post
Indeed noise abatement/curfew does apply to the entire airport. I've heard from pilots of said airline that there are FAR fewer noise monitors (microphones) on the other approaches that'll rat them out. While technically 12/30 is the only "active runway" after hours -- probably to catch v...Jump to post
The landing distance is indeed calculated from the threshold. And since you're nominally at 50 feet at the threshold, the ground roll is shorter than the landing distance. The nominal aimpoint is at 1000 feet, and your actual touchdown point is a couple of hundred feet beyond that since you flare. ...Jump to post
Full auto brakes aren’t no maximum braking capacity, so you would need to look at using manual braking. Then, dry runways landing distances do not use full reverse. Performance engineering might have the charts or computer app that calculates stopping distance from touchdown. Crews have landing dis...Jump to post

Boston public transportation is such a mess. You can get from point A to B almost anywhere in this city in 10-20mins. Hop on the train and that short drive becomes 30min-2 hours. Interesting, that was usually the opposite of my experience. Actually, the times weren't always the issue; the parking w...Jump to post

You're point is valid on a certain level but you are stereotyping septuagenarians.

I see your point but that's a form of discrimination. As I stated, there's already a minimum age. If there was a maximum age enshrined in the Constitution, it wouldn't be discriminatory. It's not just age-related deterioration. It's also simply the fact that if you're a 75-year-old President, you w...Jump to post

One thing I have not seen mentioned here is that the G-Forces may have incapacitated the pilots regardless of how trained they were. Surely G-Forces would have been intense in the freefall?

Simple answer: statistics. On average, smoking has lots of deleterious effects on people. Doesn't mean everyone will suffer those effects. Another way of looking at it: Herb got really lucky with his combo of genes and whatever else. Smoking generally reduces your life 10 to 20 years. And that's on ...Jump to post

I get up early enough that whether we are on Daylight or Standard time, I'm still going to work in the dark. So I love having more sunlight in the afternoon.
For whatever reason, I love approach lights. Some random observations of US airports: 1.) ALSF-1 seems to occur primarily at military airports, with MALSR/SSALR and ALSF-2 appearing at civil airports. 2.) There is at least one runway (27 at BOS) that has an ILS, but no approach lights (aside from Ru...Jump to post

You won't see higher bank angles than around 30 degrees typically. At airliner speeds that would lead to unacceptably high g forces for passenger comfort. Aren't g-forces completely independent from the speed of the aircraft? i.e., would you not feel the same 1.5g in a 45 degree bank at 70 knots in...Jump to post
