Re: Turbine Inlet Temperature and in-flight malfunctions

2. I actually have a good bit of trust in the procedures and guy's like Flyboy to make good decisions on when to land now, or to proceed on. (see footnote for a side story)
Yes, most of them, most of the time. Then you have British Airways.

Re: MSFS is back

Gabriel- you blew of Eric's question- Is the silicon T'hawk harder to fly than the aluminium one? I believe that to be true for the S'hawk. Yes and no. The Carenado Tomahawk (that is, the silicon one) was more stable and the stalls were docile like in a Cessna 152. But it lacks a lot of feedback (s...

Re: MSFS is back

Since the times of the Subloigic Flight Simulator II in the Commodore 64 (and I don't talk about previous versions in other platforms because I have not experienced them), MSFS has ALWAYS been one of the most (if not the single most) resources-hungry software out there. And that is something I guess...

Re: Ethiopian 737

How we never learned that they lost several fuselages in a train wreck? Anyway, from 14 fuselages that can be seen in these 4 pictures, 12 of them follow the pattern of white movable pane cocpit windows and non-white covering for fixed-pane cockpit windows and the windshields panes. 2 of them (in th...

Re: Ethiopian 737

Yes, but that was not the question. Observe that all 6 airframes have something white covering the overwing emergency exits and the movable pane of the cockpit windows. I guess that these parts are missing because they are installed later in the process. However, 2 of the airframes have ALL cockpit ...

Also, if what you want is a feel adjustment, it's best _not_ logic but a continuous analog function computed from the angle of attack and a few other things, and it's probably more readily done electromechanicalhydrograviticelastopitotically. Though since it probably isn't linear it may not be part...

Re: Aeroflot Superjet at Moscow catches fire after touch down

Evan has established that the plane feels largely similar in alternate law, and therefore, this cannot be discussed as a potential contributing factor. I wonder whether these pilots agree. I sense that you may have once bounced a light aeroplanie and may not feel exactly that same way. I did, many ...

Re: Aeroflot Superjet at Moscow catches fire after touch down

A few comments: -What caused the bad, bouncy landing (and will Evan determine that the crew used improvisation, and botched clear, easy procedures to land safety)? Still not clear. I think it is quite clear at least in a big part: They were above maximum landing weight (MLS) and in direct law. The p...

I suspect that it is similar in the MAX as it was in the -200, which must be an electormechanicalhydraulicgravityspringpitotptressure analog thing, into which incorporating a feature that works with "logic" may be complex. The trim on the other hand is already controlled by the FCC (which is an ele...

Yes...

Sad that “acronym, button” are where his brain is, versus full power, crisp, managed pull up, and climb.
I will say that you still want to click the TOGA buttons because that re-programs the AP and FD for the go-around (heading, altitude, target pitch, etc...)
