Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

Thanks! Does the HI ALT LANDING pb-sw also increases the cabin altitude that will trigger the high cabin altitude warning? Would the pilots be required to use the O2 masks, since they would be operating at a cabin altitude above 10000ft? (until somewhere into the climb for departures, as the cabin ...

FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

You know, Gabe, EVERY time I try to think you actually might know something, you go and ask a question so asinine, I damn near feel like crying.

How is it that an aerodynamicist of your immense caliber doesn't know this?

Re: Log Books

Yes/No? 1. Transport pilots predominantly use some sort of fancy, electronic cloud thing for their flight log. 2. Regardless of where Bobby stores 'his' OFFICIAL aircraft log, paper exists in the cockpit with A RECENT 'LOG' OF MAINTENANCE in most instances. This isn't that big of a deal, to me but ...

Re: CRJ Engine Fire at DEN

Only one question: Does the N-number exist in Flyboy's logbook? That one doesn't. I believe that's one of OO's 705s which are -700s with -900 engines. They were ordered by Skywest precisely for high-altitude airport work, and we never had any 705s at OH. However, every one of their 900s with CA tai...

Non-aeronautical engineering. I worked for said company in Arg and was offered a position in the US.

I am flying SW (for the first time) ELP-AUS on May 17 and back on May 19. I hope I am equally lucky and I don't died. SW is the only airline connecting the 2 cities direct, reducing cost, time and number of take-off and landings (where you are more likely to died) I'm almost scared to ask what you'...

Re: United Airlines

Yeah, I think there may need to be some context to that analysis and the context may be difficult to come by. Hawaii is hot... cargo holds can be hot... many animals don't tolerate heat well... put that all in a pot and stir and you end up with a lot of harmed animals. I think the key in that case ...
