Re: 2004 Pinnacle Airlines Flight 3701

It is my understanding that jet engines like undisturbed laminar air. During the stall of T-tail/rear engine airplanes air separating from the wing goes straight into the engines and causes a flameout. This also happened to a Tu-154 near Donetsk when the crew stalled the airplane in a thunderstorm a...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

Evidence from China is that only 1% of reported cases do not have symptoms, and most of those cases develop symptoms within 2 days. To summarize, COVID-19 spreads less efficiently than flu, transmission does not appear to be driven by people who are not sick , it causes more severe illness than flu...

There are still people who do not understand that you can be infectious without showing any symptoms yourself.

Re: Phone call during reserve/rest does not start your duty day

I think this would do it:
700.18 Where a flight crew member is notified of a delay in reporting time before leaving a rest facility and the delay is in excess of 3 hours, the flight crew member’s flight duty time is considered to have started 3 hours after the original reporting time.

Re: Frost formation

The ground, airplanes, cars, etc. all radiate their heat out into space at night. Overcast clouds reflect some of that radiant heat back down to the surface. Clear nights are always cooler and cool down much faster than overcast nights. That moisture has to go somewhere, so it sticks to stuff as fr...

Re: Time is of the essence

I was wondering if you signed a contract with a training bond that is due in full if you leave within 0 - 24 months, should you re-pay only half the amount to the employer after 1 year? It should be pro-rated? Is it fair? It looks like that might be the case. Read this decision: http://canlii.ca/t/...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

To be perfectly correct, the MAX was dynamically neutral at rear C of G, low weights at a high alpha (angle of attack, i.e. near the stall). The certification requirement is for a positive stability, in other words the nose of the aircraft falling naturally away from a stall angle of attack. MCAS i...

Re: No bounce landing

That’s a fair point.
Defining a stall via stick position is not correct.
I was talking more among the lines of what pilots have readily available to them in the cockpit to determine how close they are to a stall.

Re: No bounce landing

I’d disagree. Airplane would stall at roughly the same stick/control column position most of the time. So if you find yourself pulling hard back on the controls you should know that you are close to the stall. Following that traing of logic, if full aft position of the controls equals "stall", why ...

Re: No bounce landing

Would stick/control column deflection be a good enough indicator? If you re-read some of my earlier post, stick/control column can be used as a stall definition. That is a terrible stall definition. I can be stalled or unstalled at any control column position/deflection. It highly depends on the co...

I did some analysis of the video, and it looks like the aircraft was pretty much stalled on final approach. I extracted five frames at -2 seconds, -1.5 seconds, -1 second, -0.5 seconds and at impact, and rotated and superimposed them to match the horizons: overlay.jpg Then I was able to create a co...

This is great, thank you. I've seen 720.21 before and that's what I was referring to in this post and what the company tries to get around. I haven't seen R740.21 or S740.21 before.

Normally, I'd agree, but the crew crashed a plane. MDA is MDA, and it seems that they broke it. Having the context of the audio is powerful and should shed a lot of light on exactly how this went down. They know it would be damning (as it should be), hence the resistance.

I considered that, but after reading a critique of the Clarity Aloft I am not certain if that is as useful as it sounds.
