Re: Time is of the essence

A bond could be a loan in some circumstances, but in most cases it is merely a compensation for (perceived?) financial damage to the company or a penalty for breaking a contract. Isn’t it the definition of a bond?? “The bond is a debt security, under which the issuer owes the holders a debt and (de...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Hi Aux, The civilian airliner world is likely much different than the military world. After an infamous 737 crash in Cranbrook where the reversers were stowed for a go-around when a snowplow was sighted with subsequent re-deployment of one of them, all jet airliners were restricted from doing this ...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Just a honest question: what do you do if you experience a brake failure after you deploy the thrust reversers? Ride it out? Apply the emergency / parking brake that uses a different hydraulic system than the regular brakes. I mean, total brake failure. Or is it something with 3+ levels of continge...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

The TSB and NTSB have overwhelmingly recommended staying on the ground and accepting a runway overrun rather than attempting a go around from the runway in any high performance aircraft. Here’s a good example of why you shouldn’t. What’s sad is that the data said they would have left the runway sur...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

And what aircraft would that be?????... Can’t tell exactly from the pics but that looks like an -800. Try that at 50kts and at the distance it would take to land a loaded 800 even on a SKC day on 14/32, there’s no doubt you'd be off the end and in rough shape. Maybe take a look at t/o&landing dista...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

I have gouge for my aircraft. If I don’t see 50 kts with a good decel by the 3 board, I execute a go around, giving me 3,000 ft to get airborne. I feel that once the aircraft touches the ground, crews are sometime mentally committed to landing. There is always a go around option if you know your ai...

Never ever pay out a bond. Ever.
And what, get your credit rating and reputation trashed? Risked getting sued? For not honoring what you said you would?
How would not paying out your bond trash a credit rating?

Re: How long for hands on throttle after takeoff

Sure, have SOPs for who is responsible for throttles at any given time. That CRM. But telling a crew “you need to have hands on throttles below 10,000 ft” is excessive.

Re: How long for hands on throttle after takeoff

The fact SOPs need to specify that someone in the cockpit needs to hold the throttles/power levers during takeoff/initial climb is sad. Yes, when you are close to the ground, someone should be holding the throttles/power levers. Thankfully, there is no such SOP where I work. We are trusted to do th...

Re: How long for hands on throttle after takeoff

Throttle movement in a 30 year old cable actuated B200? Inconceivable! No matter how diligent, cumbersome and regressive those precious SOP's are, is it possible that they can't be a substitute for common sense? What a travesty. Too bad, it must be impossible to prevent this sort of thing with trai...

You should try flying on an airway at the MEA, but below MSA and ask for a clearance direct to your destination or IAF or whatever... you'll get the clearance... In fact I've had ATC offer it... on the west coast, at 10,000' with pressurization problems but continuing on the airway at MEA to destin...
