Re: Braking news from California

It may have. When you said that Aviation wasn't a great example to play the "profit over safety" card, he might have found out that Dad works for the cable company, Wal Mart, or Ticket Master or something like that. Or maybe he simply paused and thought about it. Evidently, the "nomorekitten" polic...

Re: Braking news from California

What I want to know is why this incident STILL has not been mentioned there. Did Evanie's head explode or something?

Re: Latest From Aviation Typists

Well, you are REQUIRED by 14 CFR to land at the nearest (in time) suitable airport (unless you can justify that that was not the safest move) and AFAIK (correct me if I am wrong) company procedures typically require their pilots to declare emergency with ATC. Thank you for that clarification, Gabri...

Re: Latest From Aviation Typists

It was interesting to hear Flyboy state how he was a very precise example of what the editorial described. 150 hours of twin piston time that was not super applicable to the CRJ which was where hour 151 (roughly) occurred. Indeed the whole paradigm is different. On a transport-category twin, an eng...

Re: Flight Report (and Flyboy Appreciation Moment)

Would Doctor Flyboy care to share stories or a guestimate of how often he gets to be met by EMS? Not near as much as you'd think, especially being based in Florida the last few years. I'd say in my whole career (almost 13 years) I've had fewer than 10 EMS encounters while operating a flight with pr...

Re: Flight Report 11/2018

What "light" can come on at landing, and require a significant replacement part, hours of installation and is serious enough that you can't say what it is?
The Fetzer valve indication is but one example.

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

This article is quite uneducated and contain several mistakes and things that he says "we don't know yet" when in fact we do know. That is unacceptable or at least very disappointing for a professional aviation typist who just retired as a professional pilot after 34 years, especially taken into ac...

Re: Lion Air Flight 610

I read of many interesting Swiss cheese layers. But did “we” really sit there and let a plane trim itself into a dive, and/or have pilots doing push overs to address stall warnings, with some sort of “what’s it doing now” confusion? And I somewhat agree with Evanie that dual AOA measurerers seems l...

Re: Latest From Aviation Typists

I noted an interesting comment in the editorial. It was to 'basically' do away with the traditional multi-engine rating. The argument is that it's expensive and difficult for pilots AND flight schools to get/offer multi engine ratings in piston twins, that the piston twin rating had little benefit ...

This is potentially pretty big. Les Stature did two things:

1. Actually wrote a good article;

2. Retired early, probably because CNN is paying him more than AA.

I presume he will now be replaced by Sam Weigel who is way cooler.

We observed something similar two nights ago while on the CWRLD4 STAR into Orlando.

What I thought was unusual about it was that the flash was much lower than I'm accustomed to...

Discussion comment: In many instances of "bad instrument crashes" with airliners, the plane is very much "in control" and "is told" rather relentlessly to do what the pilot thinks is the right thing- but which sadly, is the wrong thing.
