Re: Don't clap too early after landing

on my first rotation into Saudi i was positioning out to the empty quarter on a MD 80 or similar model and the pax clapped on the landing. My first experience of this after a fair bit of OS work. Its a custom, nothing more, I'd think the Saudis might think some of our customs were off, why are some ...

Re: Best resource on airliner systems

Eric are you an American pilot? In Canada its not A&P or avionics engineer. Here in the true north the maintenance people are AME's with M1,M2 .A structure is S. But the idea to go into the hangar when a machine is in for maintenance and ask to be shown round is a great idea. But be careful if the A...

Re: Type of engine on Canadian 737s

Which blades require the NDT? First stage fan or compressor or power turbine? Fan is quite quick, maybe 30 min to remove the set a couple hrs for a tech for the NDT then slip them back on the hub. Compressor or PT is another story.

Re: A&P to AME

I believe this topic has been covered before, perhaps a search would get some information. Best to go to your local TC office and speak to someone. There used to be a correspondence course (ICS????) offered out of the US that is was approved but I'm not sure of its status now.

Re: PRM+other hat's for $30 a/hr??

Is that the one with no company name or city/town/hamlet. If anyone takes it please let us know how it turns out.
Yes $30 is a slap in the face, I get a chuckle when I read these adds, do they really expect someone to do that job for that?

Re: Water Methanol Take-Off

Mater meth is used to cool the combustion air, think being sprayed with a mist of alcohol on your arm, this results in denser air and more performance. I was sitting in on a ground run on a Merto 23 one winter night and the guy at the controls said watch this and switched on the water meth. The Garr...

Re: PT6A-28 fuel nozzle flow test rig

I'm curious as to the norms at your place, are you just checking spray at low then higher pressure, using a brush to swipe the tips and if all looks good they're good to go or are you first vibrating them in a soap solution, cleaning with hot water and then checking the spray pattern?

Calibration not required. Well maybe check your px regulators. There used to be a picture and maybe instructions on how to build one in the PW manual, probably removed now.
