torrent from flyby

Hi Flyby,
The torrent doesn't download. Are you sure you're torrent program is on?
If it's not running, we can never get the file. As soon as other people have downloaded it and share it, you can stop running it.

Do you think they will be interviewing for Direct entry captains in 2010?

Even after First officer upgrades it seems they will need DEC's due to the amount of new Aircraft arrivals plus Natural attrition and people leaving.

captain.diperkosa

Qatar Airways has been hiring DEC's for nearly a decade (I was a DEC in 2001) there is no change in sight.
this is a bit of a problem when it comes to upgrading our F/O's. it takes average of 5+ years for them. there is no change in sight there either. if anything the queue is getting longer.

Can you use the FPV (bird) during the simulator?

And as far as torrent file, the computer has been running for the past 3 days and it show seeding, so I have no clue what to do to make it better.

multiple choice questions

Hello everybody,
On top of my previous post I found some questions I wrote down.
Here they are.
And by the way it took about 3 months for me to get selection after application.

What transports oxygen in blood?
-hemoglobine in red blood cells
-white blood cells
-blood fat
-blood plasma
Good answer hemoglobine

What is TODA?
T/O run + stopway (good answer)
Rwy length + clearway

What is ASDA
T/O run + stopway (good answer)
Rwy lenth + stopway

Min T in standard ISA?
- 273 degrees celcius
- 56 degrees celcius (good answer)

IAS and TAS
If you descend difference will decrease

Pitot blocked + descending?
IAS decreases (IAS acts like an altimeter in this case)

Static variation in pitot tube causes an error and is called?
Instrument error
Baromatic error
Pressure position error

1st segment stops at?
Gear up

Communication in cockpit
Goes worse when people dont get along

Mightyduck thanks for the Q's but as far as I know TODA has nothing to do with stopway and a correct answer should be: the rwy length available + CLEARWAY (not stopway)

Hi guys, soon I will fullfil the minimum requirements for FO non-type rated entry.

Does any of you know if they call people with just the minimum requirements or you really need more hours to be given a chance? Any personal experience on this??

I will apply with 2000TT and 1500+ B737

Thanks!

The question on fixed distance markers:
Does it mean ICAO or USA because one is 400m and the other 300m (ish)?

ItsAjob,

For the QR screening forget about FAA / USA, it's all about JAA.

As far as I know ICAO fixed distance markings or aiming point markings are at 300m when the rwy is between 1200 and 2400m and 400m when the rwy length is 2400m or more...so what answer to go for

Anybody, correct me if I am wrong!
