Re: Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Was the drone white with blue stripes, an AFA logo and a number 10?

Re: Halladay Crash

When the whole LSA concept was first being discussed, one concern I expressed (not that anyone was listening) was that making airplanes more accessible is not necessarily on the whole a good thing.

Re: Near Total Crosswind Disasters

Ah yes, the good old crosswind... Sometimes crews don't give it enough respect, and sometimes it's almost like they're too afraid of it. The fear then translates into excessive zealousness, both with respect to directional control and with respect to getting the airplane onto the runway in a manner ...

Re: Space Travel Science Fiction Television

I like "The Orville" so far. It's a lot luck Star Trek but with more-or-less normal people. I'm a bit on the fence about Seth as a live-action actor, so I wonder if it would be funnier with someone else playing lead, but we'll see what develops.

Re: FAO Gabriel The Aeroengineer

C'mon man...he was joking.

Bobby inferred that the airport was operating to the East, so a damn amateur landing on 30, against the traffic seems a bit unadvisable.
It's a controlled airport, they'll work him in.

Of course, you do know things that I don't, so please shed some more light on the subject.

54kts is a good ways above our crosswind limitation, which is 38kts for T/O or landing.

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. I found only few references and all of them where in internet forums, but one of them looked particularly reliable since it said that it wa based on Boeing's manuals. Well, as long as it looked reliable because of what it said, certainly all is well in the world.

I am not. These are honest questions for which I guess (based on reasoning) that the answer would be "yes" but that I don't know for fact. I was surprised that the part of the manual that you shared says what the high alt landing switch does with the cabin masks but not with the high cabin altitude...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
