Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

Why would a flap problem require an overweight landing? Returning to an airport immediately after T/O would be an over weight landing on the planned flight. Flying around a heavy aircraft with flaps out, even at 1 degree is limiting, back on the ground is good. I don't think the 76 has fuel dumping...

Re: Is this a good reason for a high speed RTO?

Above V1 why would they reject unless the captain had better insight, like excess runway. This would have required an over weight landing at high landing ref. considering flaps stuck if they took it into the air. It worked out so no issue and proper call at the time. I'm not sure if a human brain c...

Re: Alternate minima

Let’s say 06R/24L is closed in YUL and the winds in TAF are predicted at light an variable, 06L/24R each have an ILS approach and since they are both useable based on the TAF, that would qualify as 2 precision approaches to separate runways. I was surprised about that, I thought reciprocal runways ...

Re: Boeing Max.

The answer has nothing to do with outstanding orders or how long a replacement would take to come online. The answer is whether the public will fly on it again. If enough people refuse to book a trip on one the model will be cancelled. You give the travelling public too much credit. $600 billion on...

Re: Emergency exit right after takeoff or after landing

So it still sounds like you could potentially open the door and slide right before or after rotation, given that it sounds like some have mechanical locks and others don't, and if pressurization hasn't really played in yet. From an aviation security standpoint I'm surprised that all airliners would...
