Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

I usually saw the max down around 2000 kg an hour average. It was more at the beginning of the flight when heavy, but when light it would drop down.

Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

I don’t believe it does. That is ADS C works in the middle of the ocean. Although your ADS B could be communicating with other ADS B capable aircraft nearby. ADS B needs satellite navigation (gps) for position, but then uses transponder and ground stations to pass that to ATC. Your information is n...

Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

Maybe ADS C? It uses satellite.

ADS B uses mode S transponder and ground stations that doesn’t require radar. Although ADS B does require GPS for position determination.

Whatever happened to the planned MAX Captain reductions in August? That would require a bid. Does the current MOA supersede that?
There were reductions on the last bid. I’m sure that the argument could be made that those reductions have occurred already.

This bid is projected to cover out to summer 2022. So hopefully there won’t be anymore surplus.

Re: Layoffs

In theory, what has been published plans out to summer 2022. If that holds, there shouldn’t be anymore. But we are in strange times. The bid showed 795 surplus pilots so there could be more furloughs after September. Yes. I should clarify. There shouldn’t be anymore surplus than what is on the bid....

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

This is hyperbole. But extremes may illustrate sometimes. The space shuttle had a terrible glide ratio for the last few minutes of the flight, but from the time it started reentry until touchdown it flew halfway around the world starting with an altitude of 400 000 feet. Mind you it started at Mach ...

I chose that quote because it is relevant to the fallacy I pointed out. Highlighting a fallacy is not a personal attack or bullying. “Out of your depth” is no insult, it is an observation.

Re: Climbing on VZF in a jet

This sounds like one of those goofy theoretical ATPL sample questions. You almost never climb for very long at Vzf or "min clean" it's just not efficient. It's well below best angle, best rate, and econ climb as computed by the fmc. The only reason to climb that slow that I can think of would be to...

I have been wondering if it could have been a partial power loss initially and then failed totally near the apex of the climb as he was planning a turn away from population/ back to the airport. Leaving no excess energy through the turn leading into stall/spin. To his credit he was out of the spin f...

Re: Can GA Aircraft Taxi under RVLOP?

There are no special authorizations for LVOP/RVOP. The Special Authorization would be RVR1200 or RVR600. So if a general aviation airplane would like to takeoff with rvr1200 they would need a POC with the special authorization. Now for this particular scenario I am assuming the tower is open so yes...
