And I want a helicopter and a red Ferrari.

What we want is not always reasonable or entitled to be taken seriously.

QF requires either the Captain or FO to be on watch. The FO (in long haul at least) has a command endorsement on type, the SO doesn’t.

What, the same pilots you’ve spent most of this thread having a crack at?

What you don’t seem to understand, because you’re too busy casting slurs at other pilots and basking in the glow of your own perceived superiority, is this: ATC nominates the duty runway (not just...

First, this doesn’t really make sense. You don’t seem to have a proper grasp of the meaning and usage of the word ‘imply’.

No more dishonest than your repeated use of the word ‘kneejerk’. A kneejerk is something done automatically without thinking or reasons. I’ve thought about why I’d go around without discussion, and...

Ok then.

I won’t ‘kneejerk’ (nice try with the loaded language), but yes, I will go around. Because in around 35 years of aviation, I’ve never once encountered a go-round call without a very good...

If you’ve got a culture where a captain thinks it’s ok to ignore calls for a go-round and instead land long on a 2200m runway at 220 kts, then requiring FOs to take over on pain of imprisonment (as...

IMHO any discussion should’ve already happened. E.g. ‘I don’t think we’ll be stable by 500’ or ‘Looks like a tractor’s about to cross the runway’ or whatever. Once someone says ‘Go Round’ (and I...

I’m not sure it’s even a realistic scenario. If the vis is that marginal, you’d expect the Captain to be PF and head free, and the FO to be PM and head down (at least where I work).
And if...

Not to take anything away from the A-10, but armour can also be dealt with by PGMs from medium or high altitude. The biggest tank-killer of GW1 was actually the F-111F/GBU-12 combination, not the the...

Sorry, this is not true. The A330/A340 FCOM has procedures for Unreliable Speed Indication, IAS Disagree, and All ADR Off - and NOWHERE does it make any mention of groundspeed. Nor does the FCTM.

Absolutely - if you’ve got nothing else, then you use whatever you can. But Airbus gives me a procedure to follow, and a set of pitch/thrust tables which will establish the jet within a couple of...

The flight plan GS is the average for a leg which might be over an hour long. Plenty of times I’ve seen the GS change by 40 or 50 kts in a couple of minutes, due to wind changes - which means GS is...

So is applying the memory items and/or NNCs laid down by the manufacturer.



If AF447 had simply not changed pitch or power, with no reference to GS at all, the same would still be true.

Not in any A330 I’ve ever flown, unless your ‘normal cruise’ is down around F200. For F350, M0.8, ISA+10, 205t (as per AF447), the tables I’m looking at indicate about 95.5% N1. That’s for the CF6 -...

Because the thrust required would’ve been more like 95% N1 than 70%, and because any changes in the wind would have you chasing the GS in a way that could be quite detrimental. Still better than what...

Fair question. I think the airlines might say that since it’s illegal for anyone to be intoxicated on board an aircraft, nobody will be intoxicated and therefore there’s no problem. ;)

Any opportunity for a sad little tosser to display the chip on their shoulder is a good opportunity, no matter how irrelevant or tragic the circumstances. :rolleyes:
