Re tech logs:
On a single seat aircraft, you had the privilege of viewing the tech log BEFORE you did the walk-around and this allowed for discussion with the ground crew so that you could pay extra...

Not all probabilistic events are independent. You need to read up on Bayesian probability which played a large part in determining the flight path of MH370.

One of the most memorable features of the Vampire T11 (or Mk35 Australian), apart from its painful discomfort, was that you could fly it quite well without using the control column. The pitch trim...

Two other factors may have played a part here if the wings departed in flight.

Rolling G reduces structural G limits usually by around 25% and the C210 has low, normal G limits. Remembering not...

There is no simple formula in the case of ground fires.
I once was starting engines on pushback on a 4 eng heavy and the ground crew on the intercom shouted "engine fire". Company policy was...

Low aspect ratio aircraft with the engines close to the C/L tend to have a high rate of roll and so are easy to barrel roll because it's easy to limit the pitch angles. It's a very different matter...

Wreckage that is in a small area after a crash will, after a year, be widely dispersed. It's not possible to accurately extrapolate backwards, other than to say that this find is consistent with it...

Those trailing edge surfaces and the engines, all of which hang down, are designed to separate earlier than the wing in a ditching impact scenario, so that the aircraft can be successfully evacuated....

Luggage comes from various vessels, whereas the flaperon comes from a B777.

It's rather simple. You probably only fly out into nowhere if you do not wish to be found. If you crash, the wreckage will probably be found. If you ditch in one piece and sink, you are unlikely to...

If it's now perfectly normal to have only a single pilot self-monitoring during major changes of vertical flightpath, then safety has eroded considerably.

There is a serious issue of any pilot in a two pilot crew leaving the cockpit during climb or descent. It should only occur in cruise as there is nobody to monitor the cleared inputs. This is sub...

IF it's true that the wrong eng was shutdown, then it's possible that the existence of a check capt was an intimidating variable. Many pilots tend to change their natural behavior under check and go...

Notice in the video that it's rotating at about 1 rev/sec to simulate G. If you are pulling straight out of a dive you are not rolling at 360 degrees/sec, so you gain one simulation aspect (sustained...

Since icing can affect all IAS probes at the same time, thus nullifying cross-checking, it would make sense to have GPS crosschecking for errors implicit in rapid changes in IAS. If IAS changes...

Things obviously change.
Interesting, as I only flew 707s and 747s in the early days of autothrottles. Putting out spoilers in cruise then increased thrust if the A/T was still in. So you wound back...
