If you're using Mozilla FireFox, to get them to load, you need to take away the "backslash" in the location URL. Or else view normally in IE.

Jeez I d hate to be a boeing jockey, the bus rules. An your only moving up to the EHSI :-) now ! Go by way of the bus as your missing out dude.

Right I reckon its either the 281B or the 243B (atlas air?)

I have ruled out the 206/212/230F/256/267 due to mainly differences in the FE panel, but one or two dials still thrown me but I will put that down to airline specification.

Am I close.......................... or way off

The 100's and 300's I also ruled out and the SP/SR.

im not talking about knowing the laws,its the handling of the aircraft im talking about,in the boeing theres more leeway and the pilot is in full control,not on the bus.

Quote...."im not talking about knowing the laws,its the handling of the aircraft im talking about,in the boeing theres more leeway and the pilot is in full control,not on the bus."


The point at which "more leeway" becomes evident is when the aircraft exceeds certain tolerances for e.g the stall speed, On the boeing the aircraft will stall and crash unless the pilot acts fast therefore giving full control right up until your dead- the bus just intervenes at these points but still can be overidden if needed, The bus looks after you. As for handling your just as much in control of the bus as you are the 737. The boeing has its manual reversion which is hard and heavy on the controls as you've lost your artificial feel thingys + hydraulics etc, The bus also has a french version of these reversions where the aircraft can be still flown mechanically which in my opinion is alot harder which requires more flying skills as your left with F~~k all to fly the thing compared to the 737. I prefer the manual backup on the 737, but in reality Id feel safer in the bus.
Cmon vnav its deffinately a 200, but which one??????

The scarebus laws change when ELACs AND SECs start to fail(not very often if at all) they turn from NORMAL to ALTERNATE then to DIRECT,each increases pilot workload and reduces redundancy as failures happen,these laws break down to roll control,pitch control etc etc.
boeing='soft limits'
airbus='hard limits' (JAR66-MOD 5.14)

The ELECs/SECs are tested every 400hrs in a company i know of and its good doing these tests starting out,interesting,but at 2am pulling and pressing CBs constantly is not very exciting apart from the ECAM messages getting plentyful and waiting for the colours to change.
