One question about operating from unpaved / semi-prepared runways: How do you perform your performance calculations (To & Ldg distances) for those runways? Heard that on the Herc it's done via some...

Flex TO

I agree with last post. With FLEX TO you will never have problems with VMCG should you decide to increase thrust at some stage. However, with DERATED TO, don't move the levers, as benefit of...

My understanding was:
1st principle: Performance data derived directly from a physics-based simulation of the aircraft. ("Octopus" program on airbus)

2nd principle: Performance data derived from...

GPS velocity

Did a little work on the subject.
How the velocity is determined depends on the receiver model. On high-grade models you may find a velocity determination through doppler-effect, on the low-grade...
