Pressures!!!

My first flight as a student in a C150: the instructor did the takeoff and climbed to a safe altitude and then gave me controls.

Line check question...

I was the checkee on a line check and the checker tried to impress me with his magic numbers estimating the height of a CB ahead. I looked at him and said I didn’t give a f..k about his estimate,...

a 737-800?

that’s hard work! I can barely take a UK to Canaries in that flight deck! 4 hrs each way, and I stand up for some time each sector. How long is it to Hawaii? At least I have airports all along the way

Investigation?

You must be joking?

A little roll back and forth? What is the problem?

Live a little!

What has aviation downgraded to?

The door limits

"The door limit on a 747 40kts for operation and 65 kts when opened"

the 737 has a similarly worded limitation. My first thought upon each reading was: Wind is 39 kts..good to go. But if after...

I have asked myself how that event would have turned out, all things equal, except it being a b737-800. Would you fly at flaps up manoeuvre speed bug initially? Is that as "informative" as the airbus...

If you've allowed the aircraft to get that f..led up, then you should let the other pilot have the controls. Someone was not watching or paying attention to what was happening.

All I can find...

The cabin altitude warning switches, are on the ceiling in the forward EE compartment.

Really happened...

I was flying a 737-200 back in the day.
The pressurisation mode, due to system faults, was manual.
Taking off from MEM towards the east, the storms were so bad, I told the FO I will take the...

Obvious connection!

Just my opinion...

If it had happened to me...and I was told to get off the airplane, I would not refuse. I would ask why, maybe complain, but never think to refuse to get off when told by the airline crew and...

Over controlling for sure

The aircraft physically cannot react to control inputs that fast. The mass and inertia will not allow it. Not sure of the time lapses between the frames, but a good 95% of the FOs I fly with, are not...

20,000 feet! Can you imagine what the winds

Standard post de-icing check!

We usually get one of the cabin crew to walk barefoot over the wing. If she doesn't slide off the wing, then we're good to go! ;)

Found it...finally!

Section 22-31-00 pg 86

There are two A/T go-around modes, GA and N1. For reduced thrustgo-around the A/T uses an internally calculated thrust value to achieve an eight percent climb gradient.
