Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

- the idea with an engine failure in single engine military jets is to exchange airspeed for altitude to get away from the ground, buy some time to sort things out and assess whether one can return to the same runway. The idea in the Tutor is to apex at 130 kts (above the stall speed) and assess if ...

They might be taken care of. I hope so. But sinking the big ship, the real golden goose, for guppy optics isn't the play and that's what this thread is about.

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

In typical fashion, you're arguing just to argue. I'm stating some details that agree with the gentlemen on here that have military experience, and you're saying I can't say the sky is blue because I'm not a meteorologist. I never suggested any deep knowledge, weird opinions, or anything that's not...

But I didn't suggest any of those things.

You're suggesting that I rewrite military procedure, I'm just saying a turn-back from 1500 isn't a terrible idea.
So as I previously stated; no military aviation experience.

Opinions are nice though.

So you have no military aviation experience? Which of my statement would require military expertise? 3. A tutor has enough extra energy at 200 feet to zoom climb to 1500 following a failure. Please expand. Feel free to be specific. How much energy would remain after a zoom climb? What would you rec...

Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

I don't understand this debate. It seems very basic to me. 1. A turnback following an engine failure at 200 feet is a bad idea. 2. A turnback following an engine failure at 1500 feet is not a bad idea. 3. A tutor has enough extra energy at 200 feet to zoom climb to 1500 following a failure. 4. See ...

Yes, well wasted in the sense that it accomplished nothing. Very well wasted even. I wonder if the only asset they had in a projector was sold and used f...

Re: Airlines must adapt to survive

Here is reality. Some airlines will file for bankruptcy protection in 2020/2021. Some will shrink and successfully restructure. Some will liquidate, IATA would love for government to ride to the rescue. In some jurisdictions it may. In others it may not. No rose coloured glasses. Are you kidding? Y...
