    Some questions regarding check rides....

    I'm curious about these surveys I've seen popping up on various web boards for school projects. What is it you are trying to quantify using a self-selected sample?

    Question for turbo prop pilots

    This is correct; torque is NOT work. You need displacement for work to occur. You can have torque without displacement. An easy mistake to make, since the units for torque and work (and energy) are the same. Another difference that stands out between torque and work is that torque is a vector...

    Delta pilot killed in AMS

    Does anyone mind PMing me the name? I'm not having any luck finding a DALPA email or contact number. I'll take either if you're not comfortable PMing me the name.

    Switch position (Up or down?)

    Forward-on versus sweep-on The ATR family uses the sweep-on switch philosophy. This means up is on. That being said, the ATR has relatively few switches compared to similar aircraft. I believe MOST Airbuses also share this philosophy, but I am no expert on those airplanes. Have you ever had...

    ASA ATR question

    Jagshemash, The 'beacons' for our ATRs are in fact, white strobes mounted on the belly and the top of the horizontal stabilizer. Some ATR operators have red lenses on their 'beacons,' but ASA's ATRs do not. Our actual strobes are another set of three white strobe lights, one on each wing...

    What does anybody that has flown the ATR think of it?

    I just wanted to clarify what I said in my post for all of you fellow ATR pilots. I mentioned that in normal climb and normal cruise you'll get no more than 80% of the maximum rated shaft horsepower of the engine. ATR does this to increase engine life. You definitely get more on takeoff...

    What does anybody that has flown the ATR think of it?

    I am biased since I fly it (sometimes), but I will say that it is an excellent airplane for what it does. It was designed to be easy to operate, reliable, and efficient. We have had plenty of pilots with no turboprop experience learn to be excellent captains on the ATR. The systems are quite...

    Lots to consider....

    Good advice I must say. But I'll add another thing you might want to consider. Think about staying beyond twelve months so you can be off of probation. It can raise questions with future employers if you leave prior to completing probation. Also, when you do go back to school, you'll have a...

    I Hate Women!

    In US and A, if you want to marry a girl, you cannot just go to her father's house and swap her for 15 gallons of insecticide. First, you must do something called dating.

    Hiring at majors

    I'll be the space geek for a second The Saturn IV, more commonly called the S-IVB, was the second stage of the Saturn IB booster and the third stage to the Saturn V moon rocket. It was powered by one J-2 engine that used liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen as propellents. The Saturn V did have...

    Interested in Kalitta Air

    XFr8dog, Thanks for your response. I am a captain on the ATR-72. I've also been a captain on the EMB-120. I have about 740 hours of turboprop PIC. It's not much, but I was displaced out of the left seat once. Someone mentioned that going up to KYIP and walking in a resume might be fruitful. I...

    Interested in Kalitta Air

    I was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions for me. I'm a turboprop captain at a large regional. I enjoy my job, but lately I've been looking to see what else is out there for a single young man. I am looking to move on to a job where I can have some fun and see some interesting...

    Dealing with Maintenance

    Thank you Write that guy up. I get a bit tired of other pilots not writing squawks up, but maybe that's just me. I am glad you wrote them up, and I hope you do so in the future, even if it's at an outstation before my freedom leg. In spite of a nap crew's desire to not be delayed by...

    Jagshemash- Are there any NetJets Middle East pilots in here? Or anyone who has any experience with this operation? What I know so far sounds good, but I'd love to talk to anyone who has some first-hand knowledge about working for them. I do know about the 35 on/31 off schedule. Please feel...
