Well believe it or not, I don´t care, I´m a pilot for KLM. Actually it´s KLMalps! My opinion is that JETPILOT is not bluffing. to be a pilot! If he tells that so it should be! Somebody really is very of low character if he wuld be bluffing! But in one of his further posts he wrote, that he was a fli...Jump to post
No! He will not get respect of me! I just thought that this wouldn´t be good on here to fight out!
Let him play his game!
I go with your opinion and not with his on!!!
His statement of getting Captain on a 747 with something like 2500h is stupid, nothing more!
Thank you for the responses! Nice to hear, that some people like the 328! It´s true, that the 328 Jet is pretty slow, since they used the wing of the prop 328! But the climb rate is impressive! Yeah the cockpit is just perfect! Honeywell Primus 2000, the same as in the embrear 135/145 and the Citati...Jump to post
Thank you for you response! That´s true, the aircraft bounces always, also on very little turbulence. But that´s not only because of the light weight, also because of the wing! The 328 has a supercritical jet liked wing. The ATR and also the Dash8 have Cessna liked wings. The best way to sit in the ...Jump to post
I fly on a Fairchild Dornier 328 for KLMalps, and I wonder if anybody of you flew as a passenger on it.
I heard quite a few responses of some passengers, and they told me, that they really liked it. Silent cabin, nice seats and fast!
So what is you opinion?
Well, all airbusses have a special type of aluminium! When airbus deliveres an aircraft it comes with an light green/gray color! This type of aluminium could get corrision without the special lack. But with this special lack(paint) the aluminium is absolutly not sensitive to something like???salt. S...Jump to post
Hi! Well not only Boeing uses those charts, every airplane has them! I could ask some friends, who fly boeing for the manuals! But the landing distance can vary very widely. I just know one distance for the 747-400: 15C outside temperature, sealevel and autobrake to max: as short as 1600m!! Benjamin!Jump to post
Ok! somody got something in the wrong throught! I am sorry! First of all I´m working as a FO for KLMalps/Air Alps Aviation! That´s a fully independet regional airliner! My company expandet that much the last year, that everyone got a job in the airline to do something! I´m helping out in the selecti...Jump to post
Well WISZAZ13, that´s kind of stupid! With such a statement you would fail a lot of interviews in Europe! Everyone is making mistakes! Not big one but mistakes. A person who makes such statements cannot see his own mistakes, and can never improve. You might think now I´m stupid! But believe me I stu...Jump to post
Ok! Normally the takeoff distance is the same as accelerate stop distance (ASD)! The ASD means accelerating the airplane to V1 and shortly before you have an engine failure and you have to stpo the airplane without using reverse thrust! But anyway if you would use reverse thrust it would help you as...Jump to post
Hi! V1 is dependent from the runway lengt! I f the runway is long enough V1 is the same as Vr! For example, the Airplane I fly, the V1 is always the same as Vr. Because we are not limited from any airport we operate from. But when we make a charter flight to a small airport we make exact calculation...Jump to post
To lainhol! Sorry, if I made you angry! The Cessna 421 is a really nice aircraft! I flew it for some hours up in Chico CA, where I made my US licence! I saw a lot from you, your homepage, and on jetcareers.com your articel about flying in Europe! Really good! I just meant, that flying a Learjet is j...Jump to post
To Mhsieh! Hi Mhsieh, I fly a Fairchild Dornier 328! Do you know that aircraft? It´s not that popular in the states, but it´s a really good turbo prop! Very fast but tricky to fly! I flew on a Learjet before and the Dornier is much more sensitive than the Lear!! It also has a wonderfull Glass cockpi...Jump to post
Hi! I´ve flown on a Learjet 31a before I got the Job with the airline I fly for now! He was owened by a former formula1 car racer. Lainhol you really cannot compare a Cessna 421 with a Learjet. And yes flying on a corporate Jet is more fun than for an airline! The only bad thing about you don´t have...Jump to post
On some major airports, you contact ground automatically! That´s how it is in AMS! There you have a Delivery Freq. and a Start up Freq.!
That means you get you clearance from delivery, than you ask for start up on the next freq. and for taxi it´s again an other one!
Come on! I also have the american CFI! But hey, that´s not much to learn at all! As future airline pilot you should get used to that! One day you will get to long range navigation, where you have to learn everything about MNPSA, RVSM airspace and ETOPS, the NAT track system or plotting wich is the f...Jump to post
Hi! I´m flying for KLMalps!, that´s a independent airline wich operates some of their flights for the dutch KLM! I think we are looking for Dipatchers with experience!The main base of the Company is in Innsbruck, Austria! So just look at their hompage and find the adress and telephon number!

Hi! The function automatic taxiing is not availlable, since there are no CATIIIc approaches allowed. Just imagine could you taxi an aircraft where the cockpit is 9 meters above the ground in 0 meters visibility. In that case you would need an aircraft wich can taxi automatically. Dogging doesn´t exi...Jump to post
CatI means: That´s what you can fly when you have the Instrument rating: Your minimum is 550m RVR (Runway visulal range) and a descision hight of 200 feet above ground. CATII means. You need a special training and a special aircraft. The aircraft has to have two different flight guidance systems, on...Jump to post
Hi!! Don´t listen what the other two have written. Don´t ask for any pictures, because there you can not see the real thing. It´s true that the graphic is not that good, but that´s not that important. Important is the reality how the picture looks. When you get the chance to look into a simulator, d...Jump to post
Hi! It´s true what the others told you about RNAV! Bud the wording RNAV got popular in Europe the last years, because your are not allowed to fly without RNAV equipment over FL190 in Europe! And RNAV means Area Navigation. And with those things the other one explained to you,you cannot fly over leve...Jump to post
Hi !! We usually make the pushback with hand sign´s to the ground personal. Our procedure is also to start the engines before the pushback but we leave them in idle and the props in feather! Then we make the afterstart checklist: 1. External Power - off/disconnected 2. ECS-Packs - on 3. Overhead Pan...Jump to post
Hi! That´s wright it depends wich aircraft. On my aicraft you have a nosewheelsteering capapility with the rudder to 5* to each side. That means we take off without using the tiller. After landing we put the condition levers at 60 knots to minimum and than we have nosewheel steering capapility with ...Jump to post
That´s correct like Me has discribed it! But you also need a second alternate if at your destination the weather 1 hour before and one hour after expected arrival the destination aerodrome is closed (in respect of the weather - that means below minimum). And the weather at the destination alternate...Jump to post
Hi there! I´m flying a Dornier 328 for KLM alps and we do have some other procedures. First on the Dornier 328 the V1 is the same as VR! But if you have a engine failure at VR you have to be really fast to step into the wright rudder to prevent the airplane to turn for 180* in a few seconds. Then we...Jump to post
Hi! It´s true what lainhol explaint, that it depends on wich Airport you are flying out and if you are on an IFR flight or VFR flight. You normally get to Radar (Depature) as soon as possible but not before they have radar contact. So in Innsbruck in Austria there a very high mountains close by the ...Jump to post
Well that´s something stupid I think! On the Airplane I fly we don´t have an off position! But some of the older airplanes do have an off position wich just puts a hydraulic valve position into the shut down position, wich means that the hydraulic pump is not setting the line to the gear under press...Jump to post
I really would like you to help my friend, but the Problem is that I live in Europe. But I took almost all of my flight training in Chico California! I will be in the States pretty soon again cuse I have a girlfriend up in Chico!
I´m working now for KLM as a First Officer!
I´m wondering wich alliance is or comes out the best.
Not the biggest but the one with the best service and the service net.
In my opinion the Star Alliance is the best. Very good network and one of the best services!
What is your opinion?
The force requiered to move the controls depent on the Aircraft! Some, or better all big jets have hydraulic actuated controls. On the Aircraft I fly we don´t have hydraulic assistance, and then it depends on your airspeed how much force you have on your control wheel. But on my aircraft a Dornier 3...Jump to post
