Re: Scientific Engineers Botch Sinks, Lavatory doors.

This is a clickbait article about a non-issue. How many "extra seats" are really available from a slightly smaller lavatory? On the one hand, yes. On the other hand...the doors interfering with the galley AND the neighboring LAV...the sink causing hydraulic flow reversal... All of the modern scient...

Re: Iran: ATR 72-500 down

While we wait for initial reports- it’s seeming like ATRs are death traps (at least in relative terms). The nasty icing behavior seems to be a ‘flaw’. Is there more? The comment section at Av Herald said 22 fatal accidents from about 1500 ATRs build vs 6 fatal accidents from about 1250 Dash-8s. I b...

Monchie: Chaps, as a point of order, please don't link to Foxnews.com from this website. Thanks. Ooooo....Flame war material. I don't defend Fox as being bias-free...I do defend them as being an important alternative bias. Then we have the wondrous world of discussion fora to sort it all out.

We do appreciate it when you have something valuable to contribute, but we appreciate your usual admonitions and sarcasm even more.
Could a side stick have intraginent resistance to relentless pull ups?

Or perhaps transtranginent resistance to address input divergence?

Re: An-148 down

Thank you for that insight. (AND the cool acronyms!)
If it lands upright (and with the gear extended, hopefully), it senses WOW. If it lands upside down... does it sense MOM?
That’s only type specific for purple airliners.

One wonders what might have happened if the airspeed disagreement warning (assuming it's on a video screen or something and thus changeable) had "CHK PITOT HEAT" appended to it. Concur. Also, in the realm of 'outsider advice' why in the hell is there even an off switch? I guess it's a good idea on ...
