Stand to be corrected, but there are public (published to all operators) RNP-AR approaches and private, operator access only, approaches. Both require national CAA approval for use, but private approaches, RNP-AR or custom conventional procedures are not published or databased to the public, only ap...Jump to post
Yes, but the one tank (actually one in each wing) would have to be filled on the ground some number of times, that number depending on which model you speak of. Also, depends on where you started and where you wish your destination to be. Specifics are needed
Everything, well everything regarding the type certification, is on the TCDS.
Here it is

I was at several of the meetings those missions were scheduled at. Source enough? If not, the NYT should do.

It was not above it’s certified level, which is F410, it was flown too slowly, in indicated airspeed, stalled which then caused dual engine flame-out. The core “locked” due to the low mass flow thru the core as a result of low speed and air density. Both pilots were killed. GE engines on the Challen...Jump to post
I don't quite know how to put the topic or even if this belongs here or Tech/Ops: It is my understanding that some regional jets are based on corporate jets. I am wondering if something like a Gulfstream V or Global Express could go into revenue service with a major carrier for North America to Eur...Jump to post
In the USA? FL510 and above are reserved for Military. I have seen and flown on a Lear35 that climbed to FL510 on a return to service test flight. You sure about that? In my ATC career I have worked multiple biz jets either level at FL510 or in a block 490-510. Never once was I told those planes co...Jump to post
Are false EGPWS warnings relatively common? No, ever since the conversion from GPWS to EGPWS, false warnings are rare. I should mention though that the warnings of the original GPWS were not "false" they were just triggered by unusual terrain (fast rising) and often expected. From reading...Jump to post
By delivery, the plane is ready, flight 1 and flight 2 might be interesting. I’ve seen an engine fail to relight in-flight. An out-of-rig condition that took a few flights to get right. APU that wouldn’t start at the top of the envelope. Paint and interior issues versus “green” plane are much more c...Jump to post
You might read up on LaGuardia history, airport and mayor, first.
A NYC mayor once bought an airline ticket to New York City. When he landed in Newark, he complained loudly that Newark was NOT New York City. His name? LaGuardia. That airport ain’t closing, period. To build those parallels, you’ll have buy up four neighborhoods, three north and one in Jamaica Bay. ...Jump to post
The 100 ft. width is the issue. There's also a big difference between 6,000 ft. and 7,000 ft. Found this info on an airliners.net topic from 2010 — Runway Width, What Determines It?: According to FAA airport design standards, the minimum runway width for Group III aircraft is 100 ft. Group III airc...Jump to post
[url][/url] Is AF1 ever refuelled inflight when the President is on board? In another thread here it was claimed that President Carter had been onboard some E-4A in 1978 that received fuel in flight. Callsign should have been AF-1 shouldn't it? Somewhere else I read a rumor that one flight by Presid...Jump to post
Could be a switch in a component that gives the TAKE-OFF CONFIG warning. For example, while the flaps might indicate set for take-off on the gages; the sensor at the flap might not be met and send the message that configuration isn’t met. In this case, crew could have, with maintenance input, reset ...Jump to post
It doesn’t look like the G7000 windows, so I’m guessing it’s the current G6000 fuselag3 refreshed.
What’s a BGE? Probably the new G7000 fuselage and FBW but now G6000 (also about G8000) length.
I suspect it’s a refinement of the BR725 presently only on the G650. Add in wing refinements, the extra climb thrust FBW technology from the G7000 and you have a 500-700 nm range increase easily. Should be a great competitor to the new GLF models.
Those KC-135s are test articles, not line refuelers which do NOT have flight engineers. I’ve flown on them, known dozens of tanker pilots and refueled off them hundreds of times. The co-pilot manages systems including fuel.
Read Decision 83 below for how pay became based on speed and weight. Early in September of 1933, airline operators formally announced they were instituting a new lower pay system; ALPA be damned. They also wanted pilots to fly up to 140 hours per month, 160 hours for copilots. Behncke threatened a n...Jump to post

The regulatory fact is there is no such thing as a Part 135 or Part 121 plane. It’s the operation, not the plane that determines the regulatory environment. If it scheduled passenger/cargo in common carriage of a US registered carrier, it, with a few exceptions, be 121. The exceptions being small no...Jump to post
Too much weight I suspect. Regional jet sales are t that robust, I suspect a business case can’t be made for a new design 76-seat RJ. T-mounted engine designs are very restricted by weight/balance and systems integration. The new engines are considerably heavier and a couple hundred pounds added is ...Jump to post
Correct, there were 3 EA 727s devoted to deep south, pretty much La Paz and ASU with the sole DC-10 flying EZE and SCL. Yes, the Shuttle planes were ex-PSA. I guess 819 had the D-17R engines as I flew in to LaPaz earlier on the trip. I don’t think D15 power would be approved for there.
The new higher compression engines are, by their nature, heavier than older jets. The CF-34 is actually fairly light for its thrust. The G7000 had some balance problems early on as the Passport came in heavier than original specs. Since worked out. To correct an earlier post, the CRJ was a derivativ...Jump to post
I am not sure if this has already been discussed. I was viewing the Wikipedia page of Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport and I noticed that neither Emirates, Etihad nor Qatar Airways serve Tel Aviv. Also, the airport does not have any flights to AUH, DOH or DXB. Does someone know why? Because it's not a c...Jump to post
Kind of agree with Jubguy, the only reason for the hump would be to move the cockpit off the main floor, as his pic shows. That is important, because the only reason for such an aircraft you are proposing would be to phase out the 747 production completely, yet keep its present and future freighter...Jump to post
PAA was run that way till the end as I understand it—captains ran the trips. A friend who went to UA said, “if I lost an engine at PAA, I divert, land, send the passengers to a hotel, call NY. At UA, it involves multiple calls to maintence, dispatch, discussions about wher to go, etc. etc.”. Great s...Jump to post
