Re: Cessna 172 cuts off Lear 60 at YQA Muskoka . . on purpose .

auxbat: Getting an accurate ETA in a 172 might be easy because your cruise speed is essentially your circuit speed. Getting an accurate ETA when you're going to loose some 300 kts and descend 20 000' proves to be harder (especially with no FMC). That's why there is more than 1 required call, to upd...

Re: Cessna 172 cuts off Lear 60 at YQA Muskoka . . on purpose .

In the last three weeks we have had two sched incidents. One, where the crew of a dash 8 simply did not make any radio calls and arrived (cadors filed), and a second one where they called down wind and final and then landed on the opposite runway... Also probably half a dozen incidents where traffi...

Re: Unducted Jet Engines.....comming back?

Im thinking (and hoping) the hydrogen age is coming. I can't see that happening. Hydrogen is very hard to carry efficiently and would be very hard to store at an airport (or in an airplane for that matter) in its liquid form (the most desirable form I would say). Plus, where can you find hydrogen i...

Re: Westjet to operate Dash 8's???!!!

Who in this 'flying public' is scared of props? To the aviation enthusiast, turboprops are okay and even very good. However, turboprops tend to be smaller than jets. My parents, when they came down, had to take a Dash 8 to a big airport then a 737 here. Well, they said "We had to stay 1 hour in tha...

Re: What happend to the "engineer" title?

Actually you do need FRICTION to create lift. Dust off your fluid mechanics.... Drag is a component of the aerodynamic force which is also responsible for lift (the aerodynamic force it is). Friction is a REQUIREMENT to have lift. I could dig up my books, but I don't feel like it. And I trust the Do...

Actually, you need to include friction to describe lift. There is no lift in a frictionless environment....

Isn't McMurray uncontrolled? If so, it's a totally valid clearance. You need to get back to him with your type of approach, routing and landing runway.

Re: What happend to the "engineer" title?

Sorry Strega, but I'm pretty sure you are way out to lunch on that one. You seem to mix up both types.... A constant speed WILL be more efficient over a largest range of speed/RPMs than the constant pitch. Imagine a constant pitch prop and a constant speed prop with the same airfoil. The constant s...

Re: Lightning strikes

We can't fly in the vicinity of lighting (or we should avoid it) as when our external tank is almost empty, it might blow the tank up. Heard of and seen airplanes with burnt spots where the bolt got in and got out.

Re: What happend to the "engineer" title?

The reason that constant speed props are so widely used, is if a fixed pitch props generally do not provided the needed efficiency at slow speeds . Funny that fixed pitch prop are mostly used on slower aircraft... Those "engineers" must be way out to lunch. You should go tell them that... AuxBatOn
