Re: AMS can't grow because of safety concerns - Dutch safety board

Wouldn't use of RNP GNSS approaches have a better effect? Keep the aircraft over mostly farm land and curve around towns a bit better? Could work for 6 and 18R. That coupled with continuous idle descent for the arrivals and transitions should help ease the noise especially from the east and south.

Re: New executive order - implications at US airports

To frame the scale/scope of this discussion, this is how many people traveled into the USA from each of those countries in 2016 using data from an MIDT based source. This is not the entire scope. It's about nationals of those countries, thus an Iranian coming back from a trip to Canada cannot enter...

Aircraft don't normally prioritize climb path angle. While I agree with that, I'll point out that the 777 and 787 do have an Autoflight mode that lets you select a climb path angle. It's the FPA (Flight Path Angle) pitch mode and is a function of the V/S (Vertical Speed) mode. You can dial is a sel...
