Re: Future 797 single pilot?

lol. ya, first they should figure out how to make their planes flyable with 2 pilots.

Everyone thinks self driving drone taxis are going to be filling the skies in the next couple of years.

Sadly, we just aren't there yet.

Re: WestJet to be sold in friendly deal to Onex Corp. for $5 billion

Brooks, The credit watch is all about Onex. WJ currently has 1.3 billion in the bank. Ater the Onex deal? Onex can do as they please with it and you will never be the wiser. There is a reason Onex wants to take WJ private. In a public company the BOD has a fiduciary duty to the shareholders. A priv...

Re: Max Engine question

I’m pretty sure it’s the larger diameter fan that leads to the increased efficiency of the LEAP engine. If they could’ve kept the engines where they were they would’ve, but the gear was too short. Yes, the fan and the rest of the engine are different for efficiency. The nose gear was raised 7 inche...

Re: Max Engine question

If one of the biggest issues the 737 8Max is the larger engine then is it not possible just to remove the problem sized engine and replace it with the standard engine off a regular 800? My guess the MCAS system would not be needed then and this would get consumer confidence back and at least the ai...

Re: Getting paid by client to provide sightseeing in my plane?

Part 604 can't do sightseeing for pay.

Only part 4 and part 7 operators can provide sightseeing flights. Those aircraft are staffed with CPL's

A CPL on it's own is not authorization, you're still a private pilot when flying your own plane.
