Re: Stabilized approaches

(My favorite airline landing at my friendly local airport)
Sadly, your favorite airline no longer serves its namesake airport, Cape Girardeau, MO.

Now it’s a “United” ERJ to ORD :cry:

Passenger beatings, Flyover being flown over, and no opportunity to advise the pilots from 1B, 2A, or 2B.

Re: Reckless cowboy monkey pilots...

This is not the first time this happens. It's time we ban pilots from ingesting liquids and foods during flight. I once watched a pilot use fundamentals to VERY SLOWLY open a thermos of coffee in an unpressurized Cessna twin something-or-other at 6000 ft. To this day, I believe he must have violate...

Re: Engine worship

So you were dreaming the dream instead of living it...
Yes, and on an RTO in a 172, ALL of the hydraulic pressure, goes straight to the brakes!

I was very geeky and THINK I have an actual logbook signature...or maybe I just dreamed that too.

Engine worship

:D There are people I call "engine worshipers" They never go past 3001 miles between oil changes- or have severe sleep disorder if they do. They idle their engines for 10 minutes to warm them up before making them do any work. They gently apply and release the throttle. They have sound theories. Con...

Re: Stabilized approaches

"stabilized" Using Evan, black and white thinking , it seems as though, they were not aligned with the runway at the 500 ft AGL mark. Using cowboy definitions , it appears to be a stable descending turn to line up very nicely with the centerline and a smooth touchdown. I have a fuzzy memory of post...

9/8/2019: An ordinary day.

However, the Spirit of Flyover airport is having its periodic airshow.

No visual contact at 3BS's house :( but lots of loud jet aeroplanies to be heard in the distance.

And, a sonic boom!

Of course, I'm sure it's cowboy improvisation and whatever service branch did it is on my no-fly list.

Re: Flying a 737 single engine for 2:20 hours

It appears “we” are having fun at the AvHeraldie comment thread.

The pilots actions seem a bit off, and I’d think illegal.

...The effect on safety? Statistically slim, and not nearly as bad as a trip around the pattern in a piston single.

It IS something for eye rolling and admonishment.

Re: Media vs. aeroplanie incidents

I don’t care about media accuracy.

I am devastated that I was not_on board to go help the pilot, utter acronyms, tell him how to properly pull up, OR if it were Flyboy, Dummy or ITS, I could monitor the transponder reply light and go get soft drinks and pretzels for the PNPO.
