Hi there! That´s a NACA air inlet. This inlet is specially designd to take much air in with the least drag! Almost all airplanes have this in different sizes! Also gliders, just to get fresh air into the cabin. In this case it´s used for the ECS packs. Enviromental Conditioning System - air for the ...Jump to post
That´s not correct completle! On my aircraft we have for example a DOI ( dry operating index ) of 60. Then on our Loadsheet we have two stations for the baggage compartment, wich is in the rear. For every 50 kilogramms we shift the index for about to stations. So we have two CPT for the baggage, the...Jump to post
That´s correct! Normally you move passengers to correct the arm! I don´t know exactly how it works with the MD-80, but on the aircraft I fly (Fairchild Dornier 328-110), we have problems with the weight and balance specially on those aircrafts wich are not equipped with an APU. Those planes are pret...Jump to post

American has to clean their airplanes! Plain aluminium has to be polished more than aluminium with color on it! They have a problem with their airbus 300, because airbus delivers their planes with a special lack wich prevents the aluminium for corrision. So an Airbus is green from the outside when d...Jump to post

Hi! I really don´t know how much 6´4" are, but I guess this are something about 189 cm. If this would be your height it wouldn´t be any problem! In Europe only the major airlines have restrictions in height! For example Lufthansa has 190 cm and KLM has 195! If your are taller they make exeptions if ...Jump to post
