Elec trim about 230 knots impossible?

EASA document from Feb 2016 allegedly states that electric trim would not work above 230 knots. That might explain why they re-engaged trim (if the indication that they did re-engage trim is...

So, let's see if I have gotten this right...? To improve the CAS estimate by an insignificant(?) 2-5kts, a vulnerability was introduced that could have a SINGLE sensor trigger a UAS, which by the QRH...

Use of 02/20 as RWY designators

I line with cooper's info: To my knowledge, some countries, e.g. Sweden, do not use 02/20 or 13/31 as RWY designators, no matter their magnetic orientation. So it seems to be a policy matter.

Is the current ETOPS status for airlines/types publically available anywhere? It would be interesting to be able to follow.

(Caution, bugsmasher input:)

11m/s, that's about 2150 fpm. So descending from FL320 to FL100 would take about 10 minutes. Isn't that a rather "mild" emergency descent for an A320? I've seen...

EFHF: Re configure for steep dive I'm told by a few active RJ100 crew that the bird has plenty of that to offer. 10.000+ ft/min if I remember them correctly. I guess it would be similar on the RJ85.

Why are gyros driven by vacuum and not high pressure air?

Apologies if this question has been answered before - I couldn't find it.

A friend of mine asked why vacuum (suction) is used to drive the gyros in small aircraft and not high pressure air. I felt...

Andi, as the SHK did state that bank angle is unreliable I wouldn't put too much interpretation into it.
