  1. Don't see a glide path angle mentioned. Everyone operated into YJT, ( Stephenville) on the front course ILS on a 4.5 degree glideslope for years with DC-9 s and 737's without specific certification. Is the approach profile at LCY very much different ? i'm guessing the runway length may be a little less at LCY.
  2. It can also cost you your driving licence in some jurisdictions. make sure you avoid the less than professional testing centers who have a vested interest in selling you a cpap machine.
  3. A-340= 10 wheels, which became 8 on departure FRA when the center assembly dropped off an AC flight some years ago. The rest of the flight was relatively uneventful.
  4. Would that be a similar situation to where something like a primer coat paint job was done on a well known airline in Canada some years ago? PS. I think the AT paintjob is pretty good.
  5. MRT, when things go bad on take off. More ruddy throttle, Mixture - RMP - throttle, advance as required. from Harvard days.
  6. Found this in USA Today quoting Emirates. Emirates' new handling service will be offered for free to customers traveling to the U.S. from Dubai, allowing them to use their laptaps and tablets until just before boarding. TODAY IN THE SKY: What fliers need to know about the airline laptop ban | Emirates: 'Who needs tablets and laptops anyway?' Prior to boarding, customers will be required to "declare and hand over their laptops, tablets, and other banned electronic devices to security staff" as they go through gate-side screening in Dubai. Emirates says "the devices will be carefully packed into boxes, loaded into the aircraft hold, and returned to the customer at their U.S. destination." "Our aim is to ensure compliance with the new rules, while minimizing disruption to passenger flow and impact on customer experience," Emirates president Tim Clark says in a statement. "Our new complimentary service enables passengers, particularly those flying for business, to have the flexibility to use their devices until the last possible moment." At least that reduces the risk of losing your device through checked bag pilfering and I suppose puts Emirates at some responsibility for the security of your device. Still not sure about a container of used laptops in a cargo compartment though.
  7. I'm curious to see how the mechanics of collecting and boarding so many devices will work as I guess it includes cameras which are a bit more clunky to store than laptops and tablets. Is it reasonable to assume that the collected electronics will go into the cargo compartment in some sort of container just prior to departure or in some sort of secure containment in the cabin? From a hazmat point of view that will be quite a concentration of batteries if anything should go wrong.. Hmm, just reread the article, says Laptops and tablets collected on boarding, guess cameras etc. go in checked baggage.
  8. Not about to Poo Poo, although I switched from Win XT to a Mac almost ten years ago. I think a lot of it is about what you are used to. Some of my most used Apps, ( Adobe Lightroom eg.) are essentialy the same on either platform. Actualy Windoze will run perfectly well on the Mac if you have Win only Apps that you need.
  9. If I may respectfully make a suggestion, upgrade from XP as it is no longer supported and therefore is not getting any security patches making it very vulnerable to the bad guys.
  10. Perhaps not, these regulations look like they are aimed at "recreational" use. I thought there was a difference, (IE Qualification requirements, licensing perhaps), if drones were used for commercial purposes. The Minister said that further regulation is coming around June so perhaps commercial use will be further clarified.
  11. The more things change etc.
  12. Could'nt agree more.

  14. Hmmm, looked at it a few times and would have taken it to be Turtles ??? Don't want to split hairs, just first impressions.
  15. I believe he flew the F-102. That is a pretty good level of qualification.
