If one can go to the Canaries, the Balerics, or the Med in a few hours, why on a Earth would they fly for 16 hours to Hawaii? Heck, Havana or Miami are better than Waikiki. If one can go to the Canaries, the Balerics, or the Med in a few hours, why on [this] Earth would they fly for 16 hours (OK, 1...Jump to post
Everytime I read about Hawaii it seems that people pointing it as islands in the middle of nowhere. In reality though, I think with Hawaii as a gateway to other more exotic Pacific islands, the money is there. It might be not much, but if they manage to have direct flight to more remote areas in Pac...Jump to post

MEL and SYD (CGK and DPS) and PER (DPS).
They said it was based on Westwind. I don't know how accurate it is, though

That makes me remember an old ad of an US airline when you can book a whole 3 seats for yourself to sleep in economy long haulJump to post
When we have fuse plugs, why do we need to bother with tire temp sensor? Less part to fail, less cost for new planes, less line to connect. Besides, gas expansion rate when heated is well known. We can therefore predict the gas temperature just by observing the pressure, therefore we can safely use ...Jump to post
I beg to differ. In my opinion it's quieter than what other planes offer. Mind you that 737 is not exactly quiet either, but every decibels count. And in my opinion those gasper vents have sufficient power to blow air to my face. I like it more, because it's more diffuse than what they put on the ot...Jump to post
In addition to the things you mentioned, I am very intrigued by all these newfangled J seats (staggered, reverse herringbone, herringbone, etc.) and the dimensions of these. Oooh, those were fun to look at. Was it Thompson who suggested staggered economy class that gave something like a 19" se...Jump to post
Unless we're talking about backdriven sidestick like what can we see on G500 and G600, I think yoke gives more sensory feedback. Does it matter? Not very much during normal ops. BUT it may increase safety, especially for those who are used to click-set-and-forgetJump to post
Does anyone still operate L-100 or L-100-30 commercially?Jump to post
In strictest sense, they don't. You have probable errors in navigational display, meaning xx% of time you can be sure that you're within y nm from the location displayed on ND or whatever tools you have.Jump to post
This is an interesting time. We have wide body sales downturn, and Boeing will probably launch MOM soon.
Between latest single aisle aircrafts, 787, and new MOM in the horizon, coupled with slow sales of A330NEO, I don't know how long A330 line can survive.

Zac agree but as i said wonder if it could be a closed system. one way download from aircraft and only in the event of a triggering incident. no upload possible to the aircraft. and one way download when needed (ie right after the incident that triggered the upload) from the cloud to a regulatory a...Jump to post
it has been noted that the data that is proposed to be uploaded is useful retrospectively ie after an incident ie the vast majority of data from flights that were routine need not be uploaded in real time but why not program the system to upload in real time in the event of an incident? ie warning ...Jump to post
And how about European authorities, have they released their statements? I don't know, Egypt is partially dependent on revenue from tourism, are they playing it so as not to alarm any potential tourists? The members of the Technical Investigation Committee returned to Cairo with the boards to contin...Jump to post
From a locked thread, went braniff went bust.
Doesn't the chart carry different turning procedures for different runways? I'm not a pilot or controller but I think what they need to do is only to follow published missed approach procedure or SID for the aircraft taking off.Jump to post
Sultan of Brunei, IIRC, is (was) also a military pilot and type-rated in his personal 757 too... I bet some high ranking members of Arabic countries royal families has type rating on their personal jets too... But maybe it's different between flying for his people and flying for himself. It's a good...Jump to post
Apology for resurrecting this thread. In any FBW design, does the computing power build 3D models of aircraft position and so forth in the air and then react accordingly, or they just translate input from pilots into output after being mixed with some predetermined parameters? It's definitely the l...Jump to post

Hi didn't say they did, just indicated that one cannot run the packs and start the engines at the same time. Is that due to the packs putting a load on the electrical system, sufficiently high to not crank the motor concurrently? It's not an electrical thing, it's a bleed air thing. Yes the APU doe...Jump to post
