    Well, these are mere suggestions, of course, and they don't necessarily only apply to you. It's more of a general discourse on written communication to the extent that it must be done in such a way...

    I don't think this is about any "swamp" necessarily. It's just that, in my experience, when one takes himself and/or his priceless ideas a tad too seriously, it pretty much guarantees that nobody...

    In fairness to you, you've been razzworthy for years.

    There are EGT limits for normal operations, you can find those in the FCOM, but I'm not aware of any set number for an overtemp during or secondary to a surge.

    I actually ran some rough numbers on this just because why not? The fuel will be roughly $100,000 per fillup. So, at 25 hours a month, let's call it 3 fillups a month, so that puts us at $3.6M per...

    The reason you haven't found a definitive answer on the internet is probably because there are too many variables. To wit, for us and our V2500-series engines, the red "tickmark" on the EGT display...

    There are helicopters that even have FMS and autopilot with autohover, but they're uncommon. Many are IFR-equipped, but not certified.

    How is that different from your expectation that alliance partners should have aircraft available all over the world to cover other partners' aircraft going tech? Isn't this the same thing?

    Interesting article, thanks. They don't really explain how they came up with those (and other) numbers, and seem to use the word "should" a lot without backing it with much, but alas...

    Source, please. I'm genuinely curious, never seen definitive numbers like that before.

    Two slices with spicy sausage and green peppers for me, please and thank you.

    My sources tell me the current asking price is $9.5 million including a fresh C check and new paint. Sounds like the Qataris basically dumped it. They were originally asking $25 million. I'd love...

    Easy there, cowboy. Which engines are we talking about? Which mod status? Also, this is the first time I've ever seen the term "scheduling" used as regards bleed valves. For that matter, which...

    I can think of a couple scenarios. One might be when the warning is obviously false (clear and a million, not a cloud for miles and miles, wind is 0 gusting to 2, speed is spot-on etc). I've only...

    QR must have different procedures then, for us any RED windshear is a W/S G/A, not a standard G/A.

    Here's an aspect of this that you may not have considered: as aircraft become more and more advanced, even the engineers who build the things don't always understand all of the interactions and...

    What's interesting about that video is that it shows not a W/S G/A, but a standard G/A. There is a lot less workload in an actual W/S G/A.

    The problem is that learning the airplane to my (admittedly awesome and amazing, if not downright flabbergasting and mindboggling) level is nearly impossible to do through the FCOMs. They're written...

    Ah yes, the glorious 5-page 27-93-01-2! The answer is no, we won't lose the left aileron. If we only lost the green pump, the PTU will take over, and the green system will remain pressurized. If...
