    Not the visibility part, but if they get GPWS warnings and an unstable approach below the DH or MDA and tey don't go around, FOQA should catch it.
  3. I agree on the black-and-whiteness of this...

    I agree on the black-and-whiteness of this situation. It was a go-around, as clear as it gets. If you don't go around by this I don't know what you would go around for except an elephant on the...
  4. Right, I missed that. Even then, when...

    Right, I missed that. Even then, when substantiating one's opinion, it is a good practice to do it in a neutral way, i.e not cherry-picking the pieces of information and their interpretation.

    First of all, I didn't say that he had an eye on the PFD. Remove the parenthesis and my quote is:

    The problem is not really the precision, accuracy, bias, offset. error, uncertainty, repeatability, reproducibility or how many measurement categories the digital PAPI has compared with the analog...

    Sorry, I thought that you had stopped talking about the specific conditions of this case when you started to talk about the Concorde and they 747.
    But even then, staying in this case and your...
  8. I agree, the agenda that I was referring to was a...

    I agree, the agenda that I was referring to was a smaller one: That the differences between the Max and the predecessors were so huge that a limited differences training without actual sim is...

    Right, because "monitor the airspeed" means "I am assigning the whole instruments part to you".

    Can you stop playing with words and define what you mean with precision, accuracy and on-slope?
  11. Do you propose that the pilot stays focused on...

    Do you propose that the pilot stays focused on the ILS (which by the way becomes unusable too sensitive close to touchdown) until the 50 ft call on the numbers and then transition in a split second...
  12. The difference between neutral and pushing an...

    The difference between neutral and pushing an agenda means when you have an objective or position a priory and then select, prioritize, and interpret the data to fit that objective and position, you...

    2 red - 2 white means you are at most within 15' (=0.25 degrees) of the nominal glide slope. If you see at least 1 of each color you are at most within 35' (=0.58 degrees) of the glide slope.
    Note...

    I am telling you what it is and what it is not. You don't need to believe me though. You used to be good at googling stuff.

    Here you have 1 example:

    I see a lot of reasons to execute a missed approach at that point and any point thereafter. I just don't see 3 whites being one of them. 3 whites means that you are a little bit high, equivalent to...
  16. The PIC did not execute the missed approach at...

    The PIC did not execute the missed approach at the MAP despite the PAPI showing 3 whites just before entering IMC

    I don't see the relationship between the 3 whites and whether the the missed...

    I also don't understand this:
  18. Then I am wondering if they should be higher...

    Then I am wondering if they should be higher priority. A one-time / one-second "one hundred" call can be a lot of help to improve the pilots SA and would not prevent a "glide slope" or "sink rate"...
  19. What I can tell from having watch several cockpit...

    What I can tell from having watch several cockpit videos, if a pilot says "we are half dot low" the mean that the plane is below the glide slope. Pilot jargon and investigators jargon my differ,...

    There should not be a 100% heads down pilot after passing through minimums.
  21. It is never acceptable for the PIC not to monitor...

    It is never acceptable for the PIC not to monitor the instruments at all, no matter if VMC or IMC. The Primary Flight Display is called Primary Flight for a reason, the pilot FLYING should use the...
  22. At that point they were 1/2 dot above the glide...

    At that point they were 1/2 dot above the glide slope so 1 red 3 whites is a reasonable picture.

    Of course, with 1500 fpm down, that 1/2 dot didn't last much.

    This looks like continued VFR into...
  23. It certainly looks like it is in an extreme...

    It certainly looks like it is in an extreme sideslip angle to the left, unless there is a huge lot of crosswind from the left.

    Rudder in the opposite direction? I don't know, but I tend to think...
  24. I agree, but that critical point is Vmc only if...

    I agree, but that critical point is Vmc only if you manage the rest of the things correctly. If not the critical slow speed where control will be lost will be more (and can be quite more) than Vmc.
  25. Or.... Vmc assumes that you are using full...

    Or.... Vmc assumes that you are using full rudder, that the inop engine is feathered, and that you are using the correct bank angle needed to keep zero sideslip: about 5 degrees into the good engine.
  26. I agree with the article in general, but why...

    I agree with the article in general, but why can't anybody be neutral these days and everybody pushes an agenda instead?



    This is misleading to say the least. A pilot flying a 737 classic...

    I am not the type of encyclopedic guy that carries data in his storage. I am the kind of guy that carries concepts.

    That he talks about airports captured 1775 is the least of the concerns.
  33. I didn't check which version it was. Your...

    I didn't check which version it was. Your document listed that special mission ER as having 15 seats, though, which makes me suspect it was not an ER since the accident plane reportedly had 11 seats.
  34. When the question is "could be" the answer is...

    When the question is "could be" the answer is almost always "yes, it could".

    Now, I don't thin so.
