Thanks for that info. Does the system on the 787 not use envelope modulation for mode 4? My understanding is that this is standard on all new Honeywell EGPWS, so you should get ‘TOO LOW, GEAR’ at 500...

Doubt it’s based on raw rad alt data, more likely runway field clearance floor. Needless to say, Mr Honeywell will alert you in plenty of time.

I did pause to reflect on this before posting a response, but 1) I’m sick of professional pilots feasting off their recently deceased colleagues, and 2) the reasoning behind the deferral of aircraft...

Last two posts sum it up.


This is a system safety failure rooted in poor design and engineering. A good design accounts for the human factors likely to be associated with conceivable failure...

That very situation (200 hr FO in a medium jet) has been quite common in many countries for many years, as I'm sure Dick will be aware. Hours flown is only one of many aspects pertaining to a...

Sums it up beautifully from my perspective. Very easy to look at the issue out of context and say things like "they should have simply flicked the stab trim cutout switches", but when you have two...

No, the mindset of jumping to a conclusion that disparages a deceased flight crew who aren't here to defend themselves, without seeking to understand the full picture. We clearly disagree, your...

Yes, it was a little rough - apologies to reamer. You get my point though - reamer was just saying what a heck of a lot of 737 pilots are also saying and thinking, and it was that mindset that I was...

Nothing non-compliant about a post-V1 abort for an unflyable aircraft! Of course, if you've put the aircraft into that state yourself, as in the Air NZ 777 at Narita...

What an ignorant comment. From a systems perspective, if aircraft design results in a situation that is 100% reliant on crew to flick the stab trim switches off, in a time critical, startling, highly...

Nothing special will happen when you touch down, although you'll be depressurised from roughly 5,500 ft, which may be uncomfortable! In the opposite scenario, i.e. landing at a high alt airfield...

Disagree. Auckland-Buenos Aires would not be practical. I think you'd struggle with Perth-Joberg too, for example.

Only one of the two events was a shutdown in terms of EDTO stats.

If you don't have a chance to call ahead, you can get the Rescue Fire lads on the unattended frequency and they'll turn the lights on for you. If you need the runway changed, I believe they need to...

Thanks for that - makes perfect sense in that context. There is no way for a propeller attached to a running Garrett to be placed on the start locks in flight - it's essentially water running uphill...

That wouldn't be possible with the engine still running. Start locks can only engage with negative blade angle AND engine speed low enough for the springs to overcome the centrifugal force, i.e....

Conditions seem to have bottomed in the states and peaked in Australia, so it could well be in the process of flipping or at least leveling.

Is that a trick question? The main purpose for milling is to remove contaminants and restore runway texture in order to avoid degraded friction - particularly when wet.
