Re: Corona Virus

The current mortality rate is based on known cases, and there is much discussion that the true number of cases is MUCH greater than the confirmed cases, because the confirmed cases result from severe symptoms leading those individuals to seek medical attention (tip of the iceberg), possibly by a fa...

Re: Corona Virus

(Using American flu stats since they have larger data sets than Canada...) US mortality rate of influenza (2017-2018 season) was around 0.15%. That's rounding up, and all other reason seasons had lower mortality rates. Current mortality rate of nCoV is around 2.4%, but in reality may be higher give...

Re: Who here has been ramped by TC?

I've seen them check for proof of Dangerous Goods Training, check the license booklet, and do a general walk around of the aircraft (which of course they have no type specific training on) and complain about paint missing on non structural components saying that it needs to be fixed when the aircraf...

Because most I've been to would just tell you to try to quit smoking, stamp the form, and you'd have your medical.

You picked a shitty medical examiner for your first.

Worst case they make you do a stress test because of the smoking.

My bet is you'll be fine. Start training.

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Again, does anyone have 737-800 performance numbers handy?

Even using just the performance charts from the book it would be nice to have a ballpark number given the conditions to see how much wiggle room there was.

Does WestJet have the tablet on board that spits out performance data a la Encore?

Re: Westjet CYHZ

Just a honest question: what do you do if you experience a brake failure after you deploy the thrust reversers? Ride it out? Apply the emergency / parking brake that uses a different hydraulic system than the regular brakes. I mean, total brake failure. Or is it something with 3+ levels of continge...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

The TSB and NTSB have overwhelmingly recommended staying on the ground and accepting a runway overrun rather than attempting a go around from the runway in any high performance aircraft. Here’s a good example of why you shouldn’t. What’s sad is that the data said they would have left the runway sur...

I have gouge for my aircraft. If I don’t see 50 kts with a good decel by the 3 board, I execute a go around, giving me 3,000 ft to get airborne. I feel that once the aircraft touches the ground, crews are sometime mentally committed to landing. There is always a go around option if you know your ai...

Re: Carbon Monoxide

The little dot detectors are not great at detecting small amounts of CO, and it must be kept in mind that chronic exposure to low amounts of CO can have pretty drastic consequences. The electronic detectors are the way to go if you're spending any serious amounts of time in an aircraft with exhaust ...

Re: No bounce landing

But The conjunctive clause is simply wrong. When the wing exceeds the critical angle of attack it is stalled, regardless of the amount of lift it produces. It is not “unstalled” if it exceeds the critical angle of attack but somehow does produce more lift than the weight of the aircraft. Which it c...

Re: No bounce landing

Regarding the definition of stall for airplanes that are controllable well into the stall, I always taught it as the aircraft is "stalled" when the wing has exceeded the critical angle of attack AND is producing less lift than gravity is exerting on the aircraft. That’s not a helpful criterion. Oft...

Re: De Havilland contemplates stretched, shrunken Dash 8-400

As much as I think whoever comes out with a brand new turboprop in this category would win the market, in reality the money and orders just aren't there to support it. If it's not a common type, it ruins the incentive for existing customers to buy it over the ATR. If it doesn't have a majority of co...

Re: De Havilland contemplates stretched, shrunken Dash 8-400

There are some systems, wing, and fuselage differences, that would make it hard/expensive to build them simultaneously I would say... Chop two sections out of the 400 fuselage, replace the PW150 for something smaller than the 150 but newer than the 120 series, and you'll have yourself a 50 seat airp...

Jazz QRH. I don't work there, this could be out of date, but you would think they would have it if it was known there would be anti-skid and nose wheel steering issues.
