From the judgement:

In my view, Mr. Bellew’s letter to Ms. Bennett of 3rd July, 2019 was not only misleading but was untrue. If there was an issue as to the validity or enforceability of the...

If an airline elects to use sickness (and that includes mental health) as a determiner for redundancy, then from that point forwards pilots will...

JPJP,

I know that's what people do (I have 18 years on 737/A320). The distance shown is derived from GPS. GPS is not a primary navaid for the approach, yet it is used for navigation - descent no...

macdo,

Nothing wrong with with an NPA. Especially with a GNSS overlay. But only if you have a distance indication, which they all do other than this one. The NDB-only is not compatible with a...

Which is odd, because it's so easy. No height and distance checks, just wang it round the corner, descend at constant v/s, track the beacon in/out until you hit one of many conditions...

Are some getting confused with an NDB-DME? This is an NDB only with no accurately defined descent point, and therefore no way of knowing if you are on a 3 degree path for stability criteria, and...

Still no.

You can be the pilot with the greatest aptitude, but not so great at understanding and correcting a junior pilot's ways - and therefore you should never be a trainer.

Nonsense.

A TC role should be given to someone who is good at training. The skills required are mostly human (communication, empathy etc). It may be a 10,000 hour pilot would make a better trainer...

Confused by this.

Our 2 sector duties (0600 start) are limited to 13 hours, but the more common 4 sector early duties are limited to 12 hours. FDP.

Owing to the electrical issues, is it possible that he had lost thrust control? Hence the possible speed control problems, bounces and then "leaving them on" (can't turn them off) after stopping?

Cows,

Certainly when I did the trim runaway in the sim, the TRE pointed out that the condition that would cause this was both the trim switches failing independently, at exactly the same time. The...

Rog - you don't have that quite right. It's high AoA that results in different stick forces. In normal operations the pilot would not ever create an AoA that would allow him to explore the new stick...

Rog,

No one knew about MCAS until the AD a couple of weeks after the Lion Air accident. Have a look at the thread. The crew that saved the situation described the problem as the STS running the...

No space needed if a voice says "MCAS MCAS" as it's trimming.

If you're not in the high AoA regime (ie it's faulty) then that would be a great time to flick the switches.

No hardware mods...

1: Autopilot dropped off.
2: Mcas added it's first ND input.
3. Stick shaker still going off and fault not resolved.
4. Unreliable airspeed.
5. ATC blah blah

I only disagree with 737 Driver over his assertion that flying the aircraft in those circumstance was always achievable. I maintain that for many crews it would have been unachievable, owing to the...

My question is: WHY did the "flying of the aircraft" not actually happen? Not "prove that it didn't happen".

The crew at some point did not keep the fundamental parameters in check. I'll...

Could you answer this? Why do you think "the flying of the aircraft" did not occur satisfactorily in the ET accident?

The 737 Max uses one AoA vane, and if it fails a world of hell ensues.

The A320 uses the two best of three vanes, so discarding the faulty one. This makes a fault very unlikely. However, it has...
