Re: A security announcement

I never understood if with Not_Karl you meant that you aren't Karl (which will give us a bit of information about one thing you are not but not much about what you are) if you are not-Karl (which would mean that you are everything but Karl)

Re: A security announcement

Are you sure you updated your bookmark to be https and not http?

I had the same problem until I did that.

This problem can also be described as "failure to complete the post-upgrade checklist". :lol:
Yup. That was it. My bad, sorry and thanks,

Re: A security announcement

AD.I stopped remembering me and now I need to log in every time (yes, I do check the remember me box).
May that have anything to do with the improvement?

Or, I can declare emergency and announce my intentions, and let them move all other planes away from my path.

Re: CTE vs. flying on the airlines

I like the part where they say that the price of these planes is in the order of $ 35 million apiece... plus or minus 30 million.

Re: 787 troubles, the latest news..

Boeing’s plan to draw an airplane in the sky dumped at least 300,000 kg of carbon dioxide that they wold have dumped anyway if they had not drawn an airplane in the sky

Fixed.

Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

It sounds to me like the next thing you might want to research is cockpit oxygen systems, particularly how long the O2 supply will last if it's being used for all operations above 10K or whatever (engine starting, decision making and all). Maybe then you'll rethink the whole "not a bad idea" etc, O...

Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

That was very interesting, thank you.

So here is the results of my internet research (partially successful I would say) It seems you'd do well to research transport-category aircraft pressurization systems in general, pay special attention to the concept of pre-pressurization (that's a Boeing term, but the idea applies across the board)...

I don't know if you really read my post or only isolated words of it (as you quoted it), but I said that: - I was not 100% sure it was a stall. That is not the same than saying "it was not a stall". It may have been a stall but there are other possibilities. - I did NOT think that "snap roll" was th...

For the record, I don't believe you, but let's set that aside for the moment.

Thanks! Does the HI ALT LANDING pb-sw also increases the cabin altitude that will trigger the high cabin altitude warning?

Re: Was it Dummy or V-Nav who said go-arounds are not to be taken lightly?

"loss of power" is an understatement in this case. He lost 66% of the power and was left with 33% of the power but highly asymmetrical, at a speed that was too slow to compensate with the flight controls (I would say below Vmc but I k now you don't like acronyms and symbols). Probably if he had lost...

Just being a smart-donkey (or a smart squid) But shouldn't the wording be that the masks drop if the pressure goes BELOW 14,000 feet? Or if you want to use the word 'exceed' ...then if the cabin altitude exceeds 14,000 feet (16K when the switch is on). :ugeek: :twisted: :lol: 8-) You are absolutely...

Re: Power loss in Engine #1

On a slightly more serious note, did anyone else notice the engine seemed to be running even after the plane came to a stop? And the plane was clearly controllable so I wonder what the mechanical issue actually was. Maybe something like loss of oil pressure and the guy got it down before the engine...

Re: 757 troubles. the latest news

Some in the aviation trade press have speculated that this means Boeing must be looking at an elliptically shaped fuselage cross-section for the 797. This could allow it to be wider though not as deep as today’s widebodies. Such a cross-section could reduce the overall size of the jet, though at th...

Re: Informe de vuelo con fotografías de jetes, Tres DeMayo, 2017

Yes, I agree. There is nothing super special or outstanding with SW. Just a plain, bare, minimallist airline service. I just feel that they do a tad better than the legacy which is not a high bar by any account. In this case they were about $5 cheaper, but the most important factor why I chose them ...
