Hello all, One aspect of the 380 launch is in fact being overlooked by almost everybody on this thread :AI had no choice,THEY HAD <acronym title="President Airlines (Cambodia)">TO</acronym> OFFER THE 380. Why? Two main reasons : One is thefamily concept,it is a lot better to cover as much as possibl...Jump to post
Philsquares : "...from my perspective,the throttle quadrant is identical..." They can't be as Bs' levers are longer and their arc greater. Speedracer1407, Actually what you see as chunky levers are just a sheet of metal folded to look solid. And Yes,the Airbus solution is simpler.As you can see on t...Jump to post
Many many thanks for hat NASA study. I copied and printed it for constant reference.I wish every system description manual would be so thorough.
Wrong.There is a 2 second delay after the ground spoilers deploy at touch down before the autobrake is activated.
On the newest software, on MED setting,the deceleration is limited to LOW as long as the nose wheel strut is not compressed.
Hope that helps.
Hello all, Found this thread too interesting to pass. First of all, the vortex generator question :Both Airbusdriver and OldAeroGuy are right :Vortex generators are used BOTH for high speed above Mach buffet onset <acronym title="Anderson - Regional (County) (AND / KAND), USA - South Carolina">AND</...Jump to post
HAWK21M, Slamclick is right but YOU ARE NOT allowed to do what he did ! Every instructor will -shall - tell you that you shall crosscheck the switch position with the actual status of that system,hence the use of the system pages of your ECAM -or EICAS-. On the previous generation,ie the 737-200, th...Jump to post

Slamclick, I enjoyed your post, real old timer's down to the point observations ! On the other hand,I am a bit puzzled : Isn't the dark=ok cockpit philosophy the point of ease of determining whether everything is working alright? Having like you flown both types, I confess I'm more confortable with ...Jump to post

Hi all. I'm sorry, guys, but there's a lot of misconceptions here. 1/-In manual mode,THE WHOLE range of the throttle quadrant is available to the pilot. 2/-Before one disconnects the ATHR,one should retard the throttles in order to align the throttle position bugs with the actual needle position on ...Jump to post
