Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

Thanks. Higher approach speeds go hand in hand with higher weight as we all know, so that ten thousand pounds over max landing weight on a narrow body jet is significant even if it doesn’t sound like too much.

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

I think the non-dumping aircraft are relegated to patient fuel burn procedures if it is decided to land at a significantly lighter weight. In the end, assuming that there is not a time critical situation lack of fuel dumping capability should not affect ones decision about whether to land at a light...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

I would be cautious about deciding not to dump unless runway limited. We landed once ten thousand pounds overweight in accordance with company policy. After convincing the captain to use the longer runway, we used up a lot more than expected, and would have had a problem if we had used the shorter o...

Re: Cherokee Six missing near Kingston?

Lockheed Martin (US) Flight Services has criteria for formally warning you "VFR Flight not advised". Dont know what the criteria are, but it's irritating when they do it. True, I can think of two flights on severe clear days where a small amount of localized fog enroute resulted in "VFR not recomme...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

Bottom line, we don’t know if this aircraft was over it’s max landing weight. As for fuel dumping policy, I worked at two airlines that had totally different policies. One wanted the overweight landing, likely to save fuel cost, while the more recent one had a policy to dump fuel for most of the tim...

Surviving Flutter - Slow Down

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wOiGS9RODY The pilot does give his experience of the first indication of flutter. Maybe each case is different and based on how quickly it happened, it is unlikely that most of us would recognize it and react before it got significantly worse. But if a flight control...

The RTO speeds are getting higher. Flaps are more of a concern than a generator of course but what would one do here. Maybe add full thrust and rotate at a higher speed if there is a concern.

Dash-8 Runway Excursion

This one is interesting. Perhaps they lost their braking because the aircraft sensed that it was still airborne. I wonder if differential reverse could assist in a situation like this. Could be briefed but it might be easier said than done. Anyone ever had to use differential reverse to maintain dir...
