Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

Time of the accident was 0 dark 30...I'm thinking that fatigue had a bit to do with this... AGREED Yeah, but nobody cares about fatigue. Remember how hard industry lobbied that pilots aren't tired? TC even has the 2-stage implementation plan, because 703 and 704 pilots and their passengers are less...

Primacy primacy primacy!

When teaching your students, it has to be taught right the first time. Any bad habits that pop up must be crushed. You are teaching your student how to disarm a bomb!

It’s fortunate that only aircraft, hangar, and pride were damaged.

Re: North Star BT67 put down on lake

I’ve always had continuous ignition on for takeoff on the types I’ve flown and it’s for things like this. So that if the engine flames out at a low altitude it can relight. Some types have auto ignition that’s on any time the aircraft is airborne. The FCU will schedule fuel based on N1 and P3 air bu...

Re: Traning bond or ... non flying job

If your business can’t attract employees, it isn’t paying them enough.

If it can’t afford to pay them enough, then it is sustained only by the charity of employees willing to work for those wages.

Low pay and lack of sick pay is why we are in this mess in the first place.

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

I guess they might have added that to sim exercises after TS and AC turned a couple jets into gliders.

Two very good examples of skilled flying but poor decision making.

Re: how long

I wouldn't see ATC as a remote pilot for every airplane. They would just issue instructions on their computer screen during standard ops. If for some reason, the "computer brain" or whatever you want to call it, on a remote plane would fail, then they could focus on that one plane. If you encounter...

Re: Too long radio transmissions

What SOPs include radio calls? I’d like to see them. Most of the stuff that is in the regs or AIM isn’t spelled out in SOPs. It’s a culture thing. Comes from FTUs and gets carried over until someone else in the industry smartens them up.. unless you’ve got two pilots straight out of the FTUs which i...

Re: how long

The most important thing about automation is that it has to be monitored. It’s so important that we have two pilots monitoring it even though none are physically flying it. ATC would be over their head with two aircraft, never mind a dozen. ATC clears you to climb to 350 and on course. All he knows ...

The mistake is focusing on the accidents rather than. The thousands of safe flights made every day. Rocky is right. He’s keeping the computer from doing an error every time he makes an input.

Re: how long

The fact is nothing short of a fully working general AI will work for removing both pilots completely from the cockpit.

1950s transports used to have 4 engines too. Then three. Then two. I can see where that trend is going too, but it sounds more like the punchline of a blonde joke.

Re: how long

In aviation, the trend is obvious. A 1950's era transport required 4 people up-front; 2 Pilots, an Eng and a Nav. The Engs and the Navs are gone because all of their work was based on pattern recognition. Their jobs were the first to be automated out of existence because the patterns with which the...

Re: how long

Most of the manual inputs are there because of legacy requirements, slow moving bureaucracy, the relatively low cost of manned operation (for now), and the unpredictability of the human condition.

I mean, look at how hard it is for humans to descend via the STAR??
