Would it be easier to modernize the 300 or just shorten the -400?
I’d imagine use everything except the avionics from a 300 and throw in the 400 avionics and fadec control. Maybe take the PW124’s or 127’s and toss them in a 300

Re: C150 spin versus C152

The vertical tail of the 152 is the same size as the 150M. Indeed, firewall aft, there are only two aerodynamic differences between the 150M and the 152: 40 flaps vs 30 (which does not affect spinning), and the 152 elevator has 3 degrees more down travel. The extra 3 degrees of down elevator availa...

Unless I missed an announcement there is no 500 series even under development yet, I would also imagine that Boeing is ...

Or they could continue to ride all the cur...

It is a bit naive to say it is not even a possibility considering that is what the contract currently stipulates and the company has explicitly said it will honor that contract.

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

Faulty parallelism fallacy. Your equate: no seatbelt at all = no shoulder harness. You have no argument. The law is clear, and pilots use there judgment. I guarantee that the pilots on that flight didn't have their shoulder harness on and weren't injured. No I am claiming that both pax and pilots d...

I'm glad they went to investigate but the company has had 3 weeks to do whatever they want to the aircraft.

Re: 35 people injured on AC flight.

I wonder how many long it will be until seat belts become mandatory if seated on airplanes instead of just recommended.

Also I’ll add my self to the list of not knowing anyone who wears shoulder harnesses above 10000’ unless there is known turbulence, I personally find they contribute to bad posture.
