G650 friends of mine in Nigeria get about USD400k per year on 6/6 contracts with business class travel between home bases in Europe or RSA. Obviously there is a premium in there for having to put up...

I'm feeling very sad for the young engineer's family, and also for the pilot whose injuries are unknown but possibly severe given the lack of news.

Just checked the Jepps for runway 24 at EDNY and the glide-slope intercept is indeed 8.9nm/16km at 4000'. So they went down just as the AP would be trimming forward. The METARs also show optimal...
