Re: Survey on two person in the cockpit rule

The FAA still has the rule. What risk are you talking about? FA’s still come to the flight deck just as much as they always have. Pilots still go to the lav just as much as they always have. Flight attendants have not been banned from the flight deck for any other reason including as JS riders. The...

Re: Survey on two person in the cockpit rule

Your training allows you to sit behind the controls and be one of the flight crew, not enter the door. If Transport Canada and your company didn’t trust you to safely fly the airplane you wouldn’t be regardless of any “two in the FD” policy. As expected, you missed the point completely. For those w...

Re: Survey on two person in the cockpit rule

To gain access to a flight deck you need to be a pilot or F/A (in my airline anyways). Two questions: - how long does it take a pilot to gain access to the flight deck? (From beginning of training until that airline job). (At least a couple of years) - how long does it take an F/A to gain access? (F...

Re: On furlough: Now what?

It’s a great initiative you’re taking, not many would want to hit the books and write papers and exams, especially when they’re working full time. I’ll give you my experience. In my mid 30s I decided to pursue an MSc in an aviation related field. I chose this because I have about 16 years of flying ...

Re: Turkish overrun

Something going on with their operation and Sabiha airport itself. The runway is uneven, sloping up then down, terrible when wet. The ILS for 06 is 3.5 degrees, and standard speeds are 180 to 6 and 160 to 4. Surrounding terrain is all hills, which cause added turbulence on the approach. To maintain ...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Plenty of time? Based on what? Stabilization criteria is not based on time, but height. For us, by 1,500 fully configured. 1,000 fully stable. By 500, speed stable (if given a speed by ATC). I don’t know how they operate, but I’ll check, as we have many pilots from their airline now working with us.

I would like to know what airline has you on an 11 hour flight with no AP ? That's a lot of fuel burned below RVSM.
Sure,

YYZ - GRU - YYZ, YYZ-SCL-YYZ, YYZ-GIG-YYZ. Been der dun dat with no AT.
AP is required for RVSM, whereas A/THR is not. The above question was with regards to AP no?
