Pulling on enough speed on a kingpostless hanglider, to flare up a moderate slope is about 30 kts. Stalling speed is 15 kts.

Past History.

I know one pilot who was fired, following a difference of opinion with RYR. His subsequent airline employer did NOT, apparently, have to think twice, before taking him on.

Au Revoir?

PR people, is this good PR, or is it just Boeing signing-off? At least they show that they're willing to look for short cuts.

Well, one thing they (IATA) do is set the rules for air transport of hazardous lithium-ion batteries. I see, from a listing for a power bank on ebay, that there are some Chinese suppliers who openly...

Quick glance.

So, you look down at the trim wheel and it is not turning. Is it continuously trimming ND, with some pauses, or not? If you watch it, continuously, for six seconds (ignoring everything else making...

Relative to Air-frame.

I always think that it's easier to visualise the lack of height a.g.l., when aircraft have impacted the ground after an upset has left them with a high bank angle and low airspeed, if you relate to...

Yes, it was a bit of a bungee launch from the sailplane (Shark?). I hope that his parachute handle was securely stowed.

Back-up

I use two carabiners and two hangloops for both the passenger and the pilot (although one back-up hangloop is common to both, as it's connected to the parachute bridle). You can see the two back-up...
