I would expect the helicopter to climb to at least 100’, or climb continuously as he crosses the runway. Wake turbulence will descend after it’s generated, so should be close to the ground. Therefore...

I believe he was suggesting that water can freeze up the screw jacks so that the hydraulics can’t turn them.

A Squared,

The points you made about my original post are all correct. I should read the chart more carefully before posting.

So we do have an approach where you need to intercept the glide...

OK, that helps.

For RPLL, the MVA to the east is 3500' from 10-20nm. The ILS not below altitude is 2500' at 7.5nm.

ATC normally vectors you onto the approach around 12-15nm, not below 3500',...

What a question!

1. No! MVA is there for a reason and ATC will not let you go below it. So your clearance would be, " Not below 3500' until 10nm, cleared for ILS".

2. I don't know of any...

STW,

I dont know which market you are looking at - if I went to another airline at the same rank I would be getting a 20% pay rise.

Where I fly the B744, the CDL penalty for 1 winglet is 2.5% fuel burn. RTOW has a 9435kg penalty.

In Japan where the B744 was used for domestic ops, the short cruise time meant that the winglets...

Correct.

Bear in mind that there are probably 500 pilots at CX who don’t even meet the minimum experience required by QF, let alone be competitive for the position. And second officers at QF who...

Based on past experience, IF there is a COS17 coming, it will probably arrive around May or June next year.
