A five-Airbus formation flight is as beautiful and crazy as it sounds

Publicerad
 
It isn't often you see airliners flying in formation. There's a good reason for that, of course: they're too busy earning money for the airlines that own them to engage in any sort of photogenic tomfoolery. (www.theverge.com) Mer...

Nasty Autopilot Secrets

Publicerad
 
As you probably know, every major airline and lots of the not so major ones capture flight data and use it as part of safety reporting programs — pilots refer to them as “snitch systems.” Any time there's a deviation of any kind, the system automatically reports it and, understandably, identifies the pilot behind the misdeed. Not every mistake or oversight is going to get you busted, but there are a lot of them that will. Some will get you fired. The fairness of such a system is open to debate,… (www.flyingmag.com) Mer...

Disconnect: The FAA and the Share Economy

Publicerad
 
The FAA last month committed an act of historical revisionism. After decades of repeatedly saying that expense-share flights by private pilots under CFR 61.113(c) were not compensation, the agency reversed itself by declaring they are in fact compensation. This pronouncement eviscerates a provision that for more than 65 years has allowed private pilots to share the costs of fuel with passengers. And it sends a loud and clear message to all would-be technology innovators: Keep away from general… (www.flyingmag.com) Mer...
