Wing De-Icing Question by Robert11[_2_]
Hello, I guess de-icing is going to be a popular subject. Question, please: On commercial jet airliners like, e.g., a 767 or 757, is there any in-flight deicing system for the wing and tail surfaces, other than a leading edge pneumatic boot ? What about the "main," large upper surfaces ?

Clearance on hold, hold for release by Hap[_2_]
Up until the other day, when I heard "Hold for Release" it was after I had copied, read back and accepted my IFR clearance, squalk code, and had received ground control clearance to taxi to the departure runway. It rarely involved waiting more than 10 minutes before being cleared to taxi, or...

Buffalo Q400 crash by Don[_5_]

But I have a question for you folks who do have real knowledge of aviation. The transcript of the cockpit voice recorder says that once...

How can the Magnus effect be explained with Bernoulli? by Mikki
Hi folks, According to Bernoulliís principle, an increase of speed will be accompanied by a decrease in static pressure. However, Bernoulliís law only pertains to flows without any external energy being added (or removed). Thatís why I do not understand why Bernoulli can be used to explain the...

Question about the Airbus planes by [email protected]
I have posted here before because I like to get answers from experts about aviation. I have been interested in the media reporting on the Air France Flight 447 crash. More to the point, I'm curious if you all think they are missing a bigger story. The Airbus planes employ something called...

Closed Airspace by Mike Granby
Yesterday I was flying from York PA to Myrtle Beach IFR, direct to destination at the time, and the controller called me and said that I had to make a decision. The airspace ahead was "closed" so I could either be routed around it IFR, or I could cancel and climb 500 ft, and continue VFR for a...

ATC Radar Question by Jackie
I understand that ATC radar uses an encoding altimeter and a transponder operating with Mode C to determine an aircraft's altitude. Let's forget about Mode C for a moment and switch to Mode A only or just a primary return. If an aircraft is at 18,000 ft (approx 3 nm) and 3 nm away from the...

WINGS program... by Sylvain
Just a little heads up: if like me, you rely on the WINGS program to satisfy the proficiency requirements of 14 CFR 61.56, then you might be in trouble and you most definitely want to look into it before your next flight: The old program has, I am told, been 'sunset' on December 2007. In...
