RE: Airbus Ditch Switch

Just kidding, I stand corrected - both the main generators and APU are rated at 90kVA max, with the RAT rated at 5kVA. <TABLE BORDER=0 ALIGN=CENTER WIDTH=95% style="border-top: 1pt #28455E solid;border-right: 1pt #1B2E3F solid;border-bottom: 1pt #1B2E3F solid;border-left: 1pt #28455E solid;table-lay...

RE: Airbus Ditch Switch

Wow so this raises another set of questions - first of all, would all of these items be actuated in the event of a total electrical loss (as is presumably what happened yesterday..?) Second, I thought the RAT was gravity-deployed <acronym title="Anderson - Regional (County) (AND / KAND), USA - South...

RE: A320 Crash In NY-operations Question

Actually I just did some research and it looks like in the event of a double engine out situation the <acronym title="Air Canada">AC</acronym> defaults back to direct law. Basically, no functions or protections such as Alpha Floor would have been available anyways! ...who posted that comment about "...

RE: A320 Crash In NY-operations Question

This is sorta related, but what computer mode would an A320 default to in this situation? (Ie. double engine/generator failure, RAT deployment.)

RE: Why Airbus Planes Quieter Than Boeing

Another thing worth mentioning is that the 737NG aircraft had to move the high bypass engines forward of the wing leading edge - although most of the engine noise is probably generated in the rear / compressor stage, I'd venture a guess to say that just having a substantial part of the engine in lin...

First Timer - Need Some Opinions On First Uploads

Hi everyone! I've been an avid aviation fan since I was a kid (in the "golden age" of aviation travel, when pilots would let ya sit in the jump seat on the taxi-ways waiting for weather to clear and such!) Also being a sports photographer, it was just a matter of time before I joined. However, I mus...
