Perhaps not, but we're talking about the very Greatest Aerodynamicist in Argentine History (certainly the most prolific one). How could something so elementary have possibly slipped his mind?

When operating in the Caribbean we often use two airstairs. Close enough?

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

Interesting...So, you're on an H-1B? Nope. Since I was already working for this company in Argentina, the type that applies in this case is L-1 (internal transfer). In my case, L-1A to be more precise. Inconceivable! And no, I don't need to look that word up. (You probably won't even get the refere...

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 ...

Re: A Hugely Important Announcement

Ok, I got that. Thank you. But my question was more regarding how things work (typically), what a pilot can expect in terms of career growth, not what is legally admissible. For the first question, I guess that, typically, you will have a good bunch of MD-80 CA and 777 FO that will want this 777 CA...

Actually, most of them are pretty attentive, but, as in everything else, there is always that percentage of dipshits. But yes, they've definitely prevented unpleasant stuff from happening before.
