Re: The PROPER way to run an airline.

[*] the horrible headphones that ran on compressed air (?) or whatever it was LOL. There were a pair of regular electric speakers in your armrest, inside the holes where you connected the "pneumatic headphones". The plastic tubes just guided the sound from the speakers to your ears.Very much as if ...

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

On a second thought... 1250 lb of useful load A cruise speed of 200 kts with a stall speed of 53 kts. A rate of climb of 2000 fpm A range of 2600 NM Is not a typical combination of characteristics for a certified airplane. Especially not one with an empty weight of 1600 lb and 200 HP.

Re: No More Articles about the P210N

It is a fun challenge. Many people build their own plane from kits (that are largely pre-built already). But very very few manage to build from scratch and fly a plane that them designed themselves. If you talk practical, no, it is not practical. Climbing the Everest is not practical either. Or doi...

Fumes/odor is arguably the most frequent entry in AVH. Even when it seems that airlines are not reporting most of the events (nor they are required to). This is creepy and thought provoking begs the question- how do you know when a smell is a bad smell... When the 3-figures harmful gases, fumes and...
