Re: How about we go around?

Of note: The winds didn't look hat extreme, and aircraft heading & such seemed pretty stable- almost as though he got the wrong visual message that told him to go here, not_there (which unfortunately was not_runway). I agree. Very stable throughout the approach, Abd 2000ft past the threshold is not...

Re: Don't practice touch and goes on a golf course.

There is a potential psychological situation here: One can never know for sure how one person will react on their first solo, or in their first emergency, or in their first abnormal situation. You can simulate all the emergencies you want, you can tell the student "pretend that I am not here, I am n...

Re: Ethiopian 737

Not really, Gabriel. You just wanted to blab about your extensive knowledge of twin-engine flying. Trust me, nobody cares.

Re: King Air, Addison

Part 23 airplanes rules work different. There is no requirement for a twin to be able to climb on one engine, especially not before retracting the gear. That's why they don't have a V1. Engine failure before lift-off is a mandatory RTO. The manufacturers tend to put low rotation speeds to improve th...

Fairly full King Air crashes on takeoff. Yes. It was fairly full. 10 out of 11 seats occupied, topped-off with fuel. Weight and balance will certainly be a focus point of the investigation.

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.

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...

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...

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 ...
