How old are your family and friends, Timmy? If they're younger than 60 they have more to fear from the flu.

Thanks, rcoight.

Please elaborate on how the cruise performance is not superior to the original prop.

Are you referring to cruise scenarios where the engine power is set at a torque limit, an...

Higher torque? That could be because the new prop is turning more slowly than the original. What is the new prop RPM compared to the old?

Also, is it the same gearbox?

Could that have been due to the colder Swiss temperatures, rather than the prop, rcoight? How do you know they provide "much more thrust"?

But does the degree of autobrake and reverse thrust vary, or are the same values always used?

And if the landing performance required satisfied the despatcher, was he assuming the same values for...

No significant aquaplaning?

If there was any aquaplaning, it must have been minimal and not to all tyres simultaneously. If there had been significant aquaplaning, the strong crosswind would have caused major problems with...

Why only idle reverse? Is the F100 incapable of more than idle?

Inappropriate use of reverse thrust was a factor in the QF1 overrun at Bangkok in 1999.

Thanks, rcoight.

It seems that Western Section have not done a single gravel landing with their PC24s, whilst Central has done just the one. Why the apparent avoidance of gravel?

A little birdy told me that, after Central Section did that filming of FMP on the dirt strip, it was out of action for about 10 days for repairs caused by gravel damage.

Anybody can confirm?

They always seem to veer left, irrespective of whether the cause was rudder trim or "power lever migration". The 3 in the USA, the one in the UK and Essendon. All went left.

How do you know that accident was caused by the trim, Lead Balloon?

It may have been one of the other King Air vices (e.g "power lever migration").

Boeing did include exactly that warning in the flight manuals, but deleted it - no doubt, due product liability concerns.

Agreed, gums.

Something that would give the pitch-down moment at high alpha, but would not add drag in the cruise. I haven't come up with anything yet. The closest I have come is the idea of...
