That really enrages me, the intellectual has proved beyond doubt that he is a pest to society beyond a doubt at this point, why is he still roaming the streets. A few thousand hours community service washing said airplanes is what he gets I hope! All those wishy-washy "rehabilitation is the answer"...

A320 can use ULDs. However, many airlines will bulk load in order to attain shorter turn-around times.

P.S VNAV PTH, is the IAA/CAA etc not members of the JAA which is the European body there by being pro-European? Indeed they are both members. I was commenting on your query as to who would only want an IAA issued licence. Put it this way, which is more European, an Irish issued JAA licence, or an I...

Maybe if you're a Daily Mail-reading eurosceptic who can't bear to have anything slightly pro-european!!! :roll:

The aircraft abuse the RVR rule. The RVR may be 300m and an ATR wants to do a Cat I approach. They usually wait a while and the RVR may jump to 600 m only for a few seconds. ATC announce the new RVR and the aircraft take a "pot shot" at it. The ATC calls out the RVR again when the aircraft are on f...

Back in the days when I flew the Seneca it was the chance of losing an engine on T/O, just after airborne.

Ryanair flew in grand in the 100m visibility (and did not request CAT2, alas!) Visibilty is the greater of: a) the greatest distance at which a black object of suitable dimensions, situated near the ground, can be seen and recognised when observed against a bright background. b) the greatest distan...
