Re: Alternate minima

Let’s say 06R/24L is closed in YUL and the winds in TAF are predicted at light an variable, 06L/24R each have an ILS approach and since they are both useable based on the TAF, that would qualify as 2 precision approaches to separate runways. I was surprised about that, I thought reciprocal runways ...

If your instructor is confused about the difference between IFR and IMC I might suggest a new instructor.

Re: Boeing Max.

The answer has nothing to do with outstanding orders or how long a replacement would take to come online. The answer is whether the public will fly on it again. If enough people refuse to book a trip on one the model will be cancelled. You give the travelling public too much credit. $600 billion on...

Re: Emergency exit right after takeoff or after landing

So it still sounds like you could potentially open the door and slide right before or after rotation, given that it sounds like some have mechanical locks and others don't, and if pressurization hasn't really played in yet.

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

They'll spend billions to get it flying again. Probably already have. Boeing reputation is riding on this jet. Even if they never make a penny on the 737 program again, they'll fix it to save face. Even if they have to jack up the landing gear and lower the engines, but I bet they'd do it. I certai...

Re: How to improve flight training.

Let me toss this out there...if we really want pilots with good hands and feet - and the MAX issue is demonstrating that in spades - how about making an aerobatic endorsement mandatory, particularly if it is on a tail dragger? Hit two birds with one stone - better hands and feet from a tail dragger...
