I wouldn't hold my breath on that for a while.. Apparently the production of the A220 is a disaster, they are losing money on every one produced.. I'm sure the A220-500 will be launched, Air France even had it in a slide but it could be 10+ years before it's in service.. I wonder if airbus ever reg...Jump to post
There were a lot Tri-motor crashes in its earl years, some remain unexplained. Four between 8/65 and 2/66, often involving high descent rates during approaches.Jump to post
I feel like aviation is my home, and I feel like I would be most willing to study it and thrive with it as the environment. Of course that feeling could change in few years time when I actually apply to college, but I've felt this way for my whole life so far. Boeing757100, your goals are admirable...Jump to post
Just get one in a year or when you get close to the check ride. Generally he FAA doesn’t like seeing a second physical in quick succession. Also, look at family medical history.

I will say ERAU is expensive, but I think they graduate good, knowledgeable pilots with lots of both theoretical and practical knowledge. I’ve known perhaps a dozen or more ERAU grads that went on to USAF UPT in the Reserves. I suppose it’s ironic or crazy, that they went to UPT after doing the full...Jump to post
Hitting a 5 degree sloped concrete ramp in a 3 degree descent would be much worse than what happened here. Displacements are established for reasons other than landing early, usually obstacles on the approach. AMS 04 could have had an overrun, but overruns aren’t there to allow touchdowns prior to t...Jump to post
Don’t worry about standing out, just show up, do the work, study hard. We had a guy in my UPT class, all kinds of “I’m going to rule this class” trash talk. Humbled on day one on the flight line, we carried thru to finish last in the class, B-52 to Minot. Be humble. While different in many ways, but...Jump to post
As 1120A said, most SUA can be transmitted, if not in use. The ranges north of Las Vegas are pretty much closed all the time, but even the warning areas off the coast may be opened. Don’t confuse overseas prohibitions with US SUA or TFRs, different animals. Even the general SFAR has exemptions, but ...Jump to post
With Russia having a growing Muslim population, which isn’t well liked by the nationalists; I doubt cozying up to the leading Muslim fundamentalist regime is going last long. China, yes.Jump to post

Airline code sharing will also be governed by the OpsSpecs. It’s actually SFAR 77, but I know there have been authorizations issued for Iraq and the other countries listed.
STAR with a transition to the IAF or FAF is more common in Europe, often it’s flown that way. Also, why places like LFPG or UUWW have a dozen STARs with each having 4 or 5 transitions to each of 4 or more runways. Nothing like trying to decipher what Moscow wants after an overnight leg adding in QFE...Jump to post
RNAV is Random Navigation (RNAV) meaning the tracks do not have to fly over or be based on ground NAVAIDS, VOR or VOR/DME. RNAV is inherently more customizable and, if GPS-based, more accurate. The track tolerances are linear, rather than splays as VOR tracks are.Jump to post

G loads can easily be felt with little or no altitude deviations. And, the load experienced isn’t proportional to the altitude deviation. Look at an FDR trace in strong, gusty turbulence at low altitude, very little altitude excursions despite the Gs. The issue of altitude excursions in turbulence w...Jump to post
Can’t auto land on a CAT I ILS. Dispatch/MX Control has never sent you a message saying: “This airplane is due for an autoland functional test on this leg, record it in the logbook…” etc?

Touch & Go is a landing, reconfigure and take off. It’s a flying maneuver. Low approach is a final approach that will not land, only go.

There were a few states still using COBOL or FORTRAN which created problems programming the COVID relief efforts. Not far from punchcards in many places.

These events don’t get eliminated by punishment, unless the crew involved has a record of deficiencies. Admin leave while DL Safety and union pro standards reviews the details (FDR, maybe CVR) and the NL investigation shows. Sim retraining and back on the line.Jump to post

My guess is they got a microburst or severe shear. They were required to fly manually. Runway 22 is only a CAT I ILS. A CAT I approach usually can be flown by autopilot and making an auto landing depends the runway itself and company policy. Personally I would do it manually but I’m old school. The...Jump to post
I'm curious to know what the winds were at the time. Deciding to land an A330 on a 6500' runway is certainly not something one would do lightly, strong headwind or not. Especially when longer runways are available with relatively similar orientation. Again, I'm not sure what the wind was, but I fin...Jump to post

This is an Immelmann turn.
It’s a half loop with a roll to upright at the top. What e did is a climb, a 270 degree turn and descent that took minutes, maybe world’s largest, longest wingover. Are there FDR traces?
I feel really sad that everyone is setting up the poor captain as a fall guy for this. It is a fact that he was in political opposition to the Malaysian government.
