Well, lainhol is completly right! One of the captains I fly with was flying Boeing 767 before he came to our present airline! He switched from B767 to a Dornier 328! Some people now who don´t have an understanding of aviation thing he is crazy. But among pilots that´s a normal procedure at least in ...Jump to post
There are also quiet a lot of tailstrikes during landing flare. I think even more than during take off.
The only airplane I know who has a special landing and take off technique is the 757-300.
On take off you have to rotate to 5* initialy, hold it, and at 50 feet you can rotate further!
First the microsoft flight simulator is something completly different from the real thing. I don´t say that it is stupid, but it´s different. I fly by myself still sometimes with the sim. Because it´s just fun. There´s one fact: If you can fly the sim well, you have underdstood quite a lot about fly...Jump to post

Hi! I think I know what you have seen. On the airplane I fly, the Dornier 328, there are two bottons on the overhead panel wich are labeled "HORNS". For understanding on the 328 HORNS are on the elevator and rudder. You can see them on both sides on the elevator in the picture. The horns have a blac...Jump to post
Hi F111! I fly the Dornier 328 prop for an airline based in Europe. I had the chance to change to an executive operator but I chose to stay at the airline! I hope it was a good descision. Anyway a friend of mine went to fly the Dornier 328 Jet. I could ask him if he gives me any performance specific...Jump to post
I´m not sure about the BA procedure, but I think they don´t do it on normal CAT I approaches. However I´m not sure, in the airline I fly for we have this procedure for CAT II approaches. Here always the co-pilot is flying the airplane and the captain (or commander like the new JAR want´s us to say) ...Jump to post
Thank you very much for response! I really have to look for something new now. In Europe it´s also possible to get into the internet with a mobile telephone, but that´s pretty expensive and not very fast. In one or two years there is comming a new generation of mobile telephones, wich allow a much h...Jump to post
HI Everybody! I´m living in Austria and I have a DSL internet connection. It´s really fast and I can be online as long as I want without paying more. The problem I have is, that I have to move now to vienna and won´t have a internet acces anymore. I was wondering which internet provider you guys use...Jump to post
"with more expierence I will be able to anticipate what the conrollers are needing me to do" wright, you well get a feeling for that. But ATC should always give clear and easy to understand advises, so that everyone understand it. I flew a lot in the US and a lot here in Europe, and my opinion is th...Jump to post
The radiation is very very strong up there. I was flying a Learjet before and we had a counter for radiation in it. On the ground in Munich we had 12 microsivert. During climb, at FL200 we had 45 microsivert. At FL250 70, FL300 150, FL490 470. Yes 470 microsivert!!!!! The average age for an airlinep...Jump to post
That´s exactly, what I think, and how it is!
There are a lot of stories like that not only about aviation.
See, you are never happy with just flying 150´s.
You have to move on.
When you have reached everything you wanted to reach, you can sit down one day and enjoy flying 150´s.
Diamond Aircraft is an Austrian company! My home country!
I flew a lot of hours on Katanas and Dimonas, and I have to say, that those aircrafts are really nice to fly!
Speacially the Turbo Dimona.
Very good performance!
Compared to Cessnas those aircrafts are really high performance planes.
That´s the reason why I always force myself to repeat everything ATC advised me to do. For example: Descent level 270. I say: Descent level 270. Not descent 270. You always have to repeat what you are doing. Like Altitudes and headings. Not just : "270" That could be heading 270 or flight level 270 ...Jump to post
Hi CX flyboy! Are you a second officer with Cathay Pacific? Did you enrolled the Cadet Program, or did you joined with 1000 hours?

In the airline I work for it is procedure to tell the tower on wich approach you are on, like WISA213 said it. And lain, you cannot file a specific approach when you fly to a major airport. For example when we fly into Amsterdam we will get the approach on initial contact with Amsterdam Radar. In ou...Jump to post
Actually you climb not that steep, when you are late because you will get a much higher groundspeed, when climbing with a lower rate! Those are the requiered minimum climb gradients: First segment: extends from liftoff until the gear has retracted completely: 2eng A/C: positive 3eng A/C: 0,3% 4eng A...Jump to post

PAPI and VASI are part of the instrument approach system! And yes, you check them even down at 100 feet, specially during night!
and Bryan Becker this approach lightning system on the photograph looks like a CALVERT system! It can be used for CAT1 and CATII approaches!

Innsbruck INN is one of the most difficult airports to fly in!! That´s a category C airodrome, wich means, that you need special crew training to be allowed to fly in! Simulator training and actual approaches! Specially when you want a lower minimum, like my airline has, needs to develop special mis...Jump to post
Nothing is more complicated like Austria!!
When we fly to Zürich ZRH or LSZH or whatever..., we have Basel BSL as the first alternate! The ICAO code is LFSB!
Gibberish, the airport of Basel is on french ground, isn´t it? That´s why an swiss airport has LF..!
