Re: Pakistan Airlines crash near Karachi airport May 22 2020

The only thing I can think of is the fact they were coming in at Mach 1 and got so fixated on getting it on the runway that they got tunnel vision. But yea - it will be an interesting read for sure. It sounds like that’s exactly what happened. ATC recording has them at 3000 at 5nm final and when th...

It is ironic but today is Twin Otter’s birthday. First flight was on 20th of May 1965.

You clearly have no idea what the new duty regs are all about.

It's not an "economic issue" at all.
Everything is an economic issue, as well as political. These duty regs are no exception.
If they weren’t an economic issue they would have been implemented eons ago.

Re: The Return to Normal?

If the fearmongers (news outlets, politicians, and social media influencers, etc) keep spreading dread and despair, it's likely the general public will exhibit the same emotions. Fair enough. There really isn’t enough positive news out there, really there isn’t any news other than COVID news. As fa...

Re: Air Tindi Flight Missing

Captain’s attitude indicator was a combined instrument.
It had both rate of turn indicator and a ball. Now I don’t recall reading anywhere that rate of turn indicator would or wouldn’t work with the GYRO flag.
Regardless of that, there were two iPads with ForeFlight AHRS. How well do they work?

Re: 2004 Pinnacle Airlines Flight 3701

It is my understanding that jet engines like undisturbed laminar air. During the stall of T-tail/rear engine airplanes air separating from the wing goes straight into the engines and causes a flameout. This also happened to a Tu-154 near Donetsk when the crew stalled the airplane in a thunderstorm a...

Evidence from China is that only 1% of reported cases do not have symptoms, and most of those cases develop symptoms within 2 days. To summarize, COVID-19 spreads less efficiently than flu, transmission does not appear to be driven by people who are not sick , it causes more severe illness than flu...

Re: Phone call during reserve/rest does not start your duty day

I think this would do it:
700.18 Where a flight crew member is notified of a delay in reporting time before leaving a rest facility and the delay is in excess of 3 hours, the flight crew member’s flight duty time is considered to have started 3 hours after the original reporting time.

Re: Frost formation

The ground, airplanes, cars, etc. all radiate their heat out into space at night. Overcast clouds reflect some of that radiant heat back down to the surface. Clear nights are always cooler and cool down much faster than overcast nights. That moisture has to go somewhere, so it sticks to stuff as fr...

Re: Time is of the essence

I was wondering if you signed a contract with a training bond that is due in full if you leave within 0 - 24 months, should you re-pay only half the amount to the employer after 1 year? It should be pro-rated? Is it fair? It looks like that might be the case. Read this decision: http://canlii.ca/t/...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

To be perfectly correct, the MAX was dynamically neutral at rear C of G, low weights at a high alpha (angle of attack, i.e. near the stall). The certification requirement is for a positive stability, in other words the nose of the aircraft falling naturally away from a stall angle of attack. MCAS i...

Re: No bounce landing

That’s a fair point.
Defining a stall via stick position is not correct.
I was talking more among the lines of what pilots have readily available to them in the cockpit to determine how close they are to a stall.

Re: No bounce landing

I’d disagree. Airplane would stall at roughly the same stick/control column position most of the time. So if you find yourself pulling hard back on the controls you should know that you are close to the stall. Following that traing of logic, if full aft position of the controls equals "stall", why ...

Re: No bounce landing

Would stick/control column deflection be a good enough indicator? If you re-read some of my earlier post, stick/control column can be used as a stall definition. That is a terrible stall definition. I can be stalled or unstalled at any control column position/deflection. It highly depends on the co...
