Is the autopilot required for the flight path recorded from ADS-B?
|Quoting 764 (Reply 116):|
So the average zero power descend (maintaining airspeed) is somewhere between 1500fpm and 2000fpm for the A320, right? Now this flight descended at 3500ish fpm, yet its air speed did not increase significantly.
I think possibly a little more. 3500ish is probably possible with zero thrust, according to some of the pilot responses here.

I have heard, for example, that pilot creativity in dealing with emergencies is all but squelched.
You have heard wrong, then.
