On call hours don't count as duty time in the eyes of TC. Perhaps you should count yourself lucky to get even 8 hours per day.
They don’t count as off time either though.

The FAA used to be the gold standard when it came to safety and certification, not anymore.
Rudder/vertical fin issues with 707 and stick pusher issues with 727 illustrate otherwise. Industry has been able to push FAA around quite a bit a long time before 2019.

Re: Metars Wind Decode

If you look at the METAR closer, you’ll see WND ESTD in RMK section.
Multiple slashes in METARs or weather reports in general mean “missing” data. In this case they were unable to determine what the wind was gusting to. It seems like earlier in the day they were able to do it though.

Re: Boeing's "Battle over blame": reduce power or not?

If we can assume the plane started the uncorrected/uncontrolled descent because the pilots were unable to raise the nose while they were still under Vne, it makes me wonder if airplanes can be certified if there are situations in which the control forces on the yoke with full opposite trim exceed a...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Nothing on an aircraft should be allowed to flap nor freewheel needlessly. If it is parked and might move, it should be tied. Brief windmilling of PT6 props won't hurt them, prolonged windmilling introduces lubrication concerns - long long would you like to leave it windmilling to learn it was dama...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

I haven't met anybody who would let a PT6 or other free turbine windmill all day. Maybe 5 or 10 minutes while after taking the prop tie off to hitting the starter. Just watch a Q400 next time you see it on a windy day, the PW150 is a free turbine. For sure. They do feather it before shutdown though...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Free turbines spin the prop the wrong way all the time on windy days That’s not a good thing. At least on the Garret that’s a big no no since starter-generator brushes are worn in only one way, spinning them the other way is not good. Garretts ain't free turbines. Free turbines can have the props s...

I'm assuming that 25° is a reduced flap landing for this type? Anyone have any idea what the ref speed would/should have been?
Direct law landings should be done at flaps 3 setting.
At max take off weight for an immediate return it is about 160kts. Reducing by roughly 3 knots per 1000kg.

The 500 pilots slotting ahead come with aircraft, the ratio stays the same for career progression.
