​​​​​​The first and last parts of that paragraph are absolutely true. The middle bit had me rolling around on the floor laughing! I've seen plenty of OEMs deliberately throw the end user under the...

Merlin definitely isn't in scope for the "New Medium Helicopter" NMH (puma / dauphin / 212 / 412 replacement). In that timeframe it is in scope (as mentioned recently by a couple of MOD folk) for the...

I'd beg to say that Nurse is not an overtly female title in the language sense, just that there is a strong association with females in the profession. Exactly the same problem that the majority of...

Using your cab to dust off protesters

Lots of images/video doing the rounds of what is reportedly a Customs/Border Patrol Squirrel using rotor wash to move on protesters in MN, USA.

Not a comment on the protest as I've no info on that...

Looks to be (just from eyeball) about the same height as the aft rotor on a Chinook, which seems to manage just fine, albeit with a larger logistical footprint than a typical small rotorcraft.

I mean, the recent review mad a big deal about army cuts not being cuts because the army hasn't been that size for a decade, so you're not wrong sasless. Does seem to be perhaps not quite the right...

That's where you're wrong. If you were a major country (let's say the USA) facing a hypothetical massive shortage in a critical aviation role (let's say pilots) then the ability to recruit talent...

I'd be interested to know, out of the long list of posters above, how many would sign up to a job title with an overtly female title with no male equivalent. How many male rearcrew would have signed...

I agree, but I don't see a problem with this, so long as you engineer resilience into your system (in a military context). Flying hours are finite (borderline non-existant in some fleets) and...

Pretty reasonable SOP to eject in the event of leaving the runway at any speed - rollover risk is extremely high, with obvious negative outcomes. The fact that, in this case, the jet didn't roll over...

I don't have a dog in the fight on this, but while there are merits to the parallels you draw, this is flawed logic. The reason Belfast specifies concurrent north/south referenda is because it is...

agreed. A lot of people also seem to equate a push towards lower emissions with lower performance. Absolutely doesn't have to be the case. There's so much low hanging fruit it's untrue. Anyone who's...

Let me pose a thought experiment. Let's say, for the sake of argument, that none of us (as individual ppruners) actually know what is going on with the climate.

1 RAF helicopter squadron in the 2020s? That's literally somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 the SH force depending on how you count it, so probably unrealistic!

A) big of you to mock someone for a difference like Asperger's.

Fire starts as the tail boom separates just aft of the main fuselage. The Z-18 design, iirc, has one of the 3 engines an unusually long way aft on the top deck, so probably associated with the engine...

Another crew lost, condolences to their colleagues and family.

Looks like an AVIC AC313 to my eye - civil version of the Z-18, which is a modernised Z-8, itself based on the super frelon.
