Has anyone else noticed in the A320, that when selecting F-FULL which generally occurs at about 1200ft AGL, there is ~1.0 deg (or more) pitch up? This means that, when hand-flying an approach and to...

No MEL/CDL cover as ge

Correct me please but there is neither a MEL nor CDL for a missing ash-tray on the flight deck (not in position). If it is missing, it is no-go.

I believe FEDEX have a few T7's in freighter configuration. My understanding talking to the mechanics and drivers in MEM and ANC were that the T7F's were OTS (off the shelf).

I agree that ATC generally wants to process traffic SAFELY and EXPEDITIOUSLY.
So why the hell does Australian ATC make it so bloody complicated? It is not as though Australia has a lot of traffic;...

Whose STC will be be modified on?

I wonder if Precision will do the conversion? If so, the airframes should be good for about 27T combined on the main and lower decks.

It will be interesting.

You are quite correct - Airbus permits only auto brake MIN, MED or manual (and selection of MAX for TKOF only).
From memory, Boeing has ABS 1 thru 5; MD11 has ABS OFF, MIN, MED or MAX.
