Its called the Khamsin. Like Melbourne's Brickfelder, the Scirocco, Kiwatin, Santa Ana...all of these phenomena are well documented* and predictable.

Hate is my default position Keg. It takes no energy at all. Hate, and sarcastic hyperbole. You take things too literally. What are you? A pilot or something?

Adjunct to all of this a letter arrived yesterday from QF. Well, a glossy scratch n sniff card promoting the code share and inviting the recipient to scratch to see if it was one of the free 'golden...

James Strong never gave reason to seriously question his motives, nor his intent. But I have heard several times an apocryphal story of a comment that he was alleged to have made on a flight deck...

I have been following this thread for some weeks now, and am aghast at the inhumane behaviour of engineering 'management'. What possible happy outcome can they expect from such a strategy? How can...

Twin Beeches have tailwheels. Castering tailwheels.

Fellas: there is no doubt that hairy-chested airmen can fly the pants off anything, conventional gear or not. An NDB is pure luxury, accustomed as we all are to audible range let-downs. I think that...

Market share

The old saw about market share is the famous B School case study of the last buggy whip manufacturer ending up with 100% of the market. But that's not aviation:a growing and steadily more affluent...

Voice recorder?

If the ATSB did not have access to the Thai CVR, how are they able to state that the ATC transmissions were not blocked by other radio traffic as heard in the Thai flight deck? I can't count how many...

Night visual approach requirements

The requirement to be inside the circling area at night may be unique to Australia. I cannot recall it being in force in any other country in which I am licensed. Here is a fair use copy from the...

In rain, at night especially, there can be a diffraction error in the visible picture. Certainly not of enough magnitude to explain this degree of vertical deviation, but it can be a contributory...

That little rant out of the way, I agree with the call for an ILS installation at every runway serving jet ops. Say what you like about skill levels, tired old guys make mistakes. Non-precision...

I agree, MooseKnuckle. It appears to my jaundiced eye that load factors might just be Joyce's key performance marker. Why else the emphasis? And why, come to think of it, have all of our anecdotal...

Pardon my cynicism, but who released this news item? Dixon & Co? To what end? To depress the share price a bit ? To allow them to churn their shares for a 4% gain in the week to come?

Fatigue is independent of your recent work history; it is a short-term phenomena. If some ****, regardless of rank, is mandating a patently unsafe or sub-optimum rest roster it should be voted down...

Approach bans have been in place in most countries for at least forty-two years* Essentially they are designed to prohibit ILS approaches inside the OM when RVR (not reported from some car) is below...

Ryan's profit & loss statement is irrelevant to the customer. They are, as you state, a crap airline to fly. The fact that they make a profit of any magnitude is a stinging indictment of the...

Yes, despite more expensive aeroplanes, fuel, amenities, carbon, executives, staff and every other damned thing air fares are cheaper.

Ah! I haven't travelled on DJ for a few years now. Are you saying that DJ has cheapened their product while trying to move upmarket? I'll take your word for it, but it surprises me.

Are tou serious? Tiger goes out of its way, as does Jetstar to a large degree, to care about the customer's money as opposed to the customer, and make the distinction obvious.

I think you'll find that the assertion that other airlines do not get a MDC is also false. Sure, the LCCs would likely not, but they try to schedule denisty anyway if they are smart.

The coalition was defeated in 07 on the back of the Work Choices fiasco; I doubt that they would have been eager to revisit draconian labour laws. Even the appearance of anti-worker legislation would...
