RE: Boeing 717 Changes During Build

It's pretty common for such things to change during production. The longer the production run, the more changes you will see. Mechanics will soon become very familiar with differences throughout the fleet and of course manuals will show the differences too, identifying what fit is applicable to what...

RE: Bypass Ratio: How Did R-R Miscalculate Circa 1959?

The original Conway was designed for in-wing mounting in the Victor <acronym title="Belavia (Belarus)">B2</acronym> bomber so bypass ratio was restricted by size constraints to 0.25. Also the Conway was the first operational turbofan, so design was perhaps over conservative. Higher bypass ratio turb...

The maximum speed limit of the aircraft will be the lower of the maximum operating airspeed (Vmo) and the maximum operating Mach Number (Mmo).

RE: Why 4 Engine Jets Have Longer Takeoff Rolls?

All other things being equal, the essential difference is that a twin needs additional thrust on takeoff to allow for the engine failure case. Both must be able to climb out with one engine failed. A twin must climb on one engine while a quad need only be able to climb on three. Therefore the twin h...

RE: Staggered Engine Spool-up On Older Aircraft - Why?

On the 707 landing video, all four thrust levers would have gone into reverse together. You can see the reverser cowlings move simultaneously. So any difference is in how the engines respond. The later spool up is probably due to one engine's surge bleed valves closing later meaning the engine will ...

Operating the flight controls does not require great manual dexterity. So handedness doesn't come into it. Unless you are so one handed that your other hand is effectively useless. In which unlikely case you probably won't have been able to get your private pilot's licence, let alone an ATPL.
