RE: 737 With And Without Winglets .. Pilots Notice?

Mel, In the AMM Boeing refers to them just as aircraft fitted with wingLETS or aircraft fitted with wingTIPS. Which I really hate because it is so easy at first glance to choose the wrong one when you first look at it because you are looking for the word winglets and you end up reading wingtips as w...

RE: Most Hated Aircraft Fluid?

It doesn't quite fit in here as its not really a fluid but one of my most hated things is the dust that sits on the wiring looms and insulation blankets behind the cargo liners and at the back of the forward hold in the snake pit as so much dust sits in there. Then if you have even the smallest amou...

RE: 737 With And Without Winglets .. Pilots Notice?

The 737-800W is an actual designation which is used on the FMC. If you look at the ident page on the FMC <acronym title="Camden (CDU / YSCN), Australia - New South Wales">CDU</acronym> it will say the model is a 737-800W as opposed to just a 737-800 without a 'W' on aircraft not fitted with winglets...

RE: AirTran/Southwest 737 Cockpit Differences?

The airline identifier of an aircraft does not necessarily mean that the airline owns the aircraft it is just the spec that it has been built to. For example <acronym title="Britannia Airlines (United Kingdom)">BY</acronym> aircraft are designated -?04 but even these can vary quite a lot in their eq...

RE: Captains Only For Taxiing?

Hey Rick Congrats on the left hand seat. You used to be a F/O at Brits right? How did you taxi the aircraft from the right hand seat as we don't have a tiller on the right hand side of any of our aircraft? The only one I can think of was when we had that old swedish dog 'DUP' which if I remember cor...

RE: Personnel In Cockpit During Towing

I cannot believe how different your policy is from ours, it is quite shocking how bad our place is really. We do not have an automatic fire suppression system in our hangar, all we have is a long fire hose with a foam canister attached to the end, it is really bad. We have our own tug drivers and tu...

RE: Personnel In Cockpit During Towing

Hi All, This is my first post but I have been reading this forum for a while now and I thought this would be a good topic to add to and ask some questions to my fellow sheddie mechs out there. When we tow an aircraft into the hangar at my company we always leave the APU running for electrics and hyd...
