Re: Air Belgium in 2019

1) we can’t get traffic rights The "we can't" is the exact reason why - IF there are talks - complete confidentiality is necessary. International politics and lobbying is involved. And clarification about "taxpayers" money is only required in due time, which is hypocrit anyway. It is not "our" mone...

Re: Where does the thrust of a rocket engine actually acts?

Even in a jet engine, the combustion creates a flow speed increase that creates a net drop in pressure, so there is no high sideways force. In a rocket engine, the exhaust is designed for a certain "atmospheric region". In the converging section, the pressure does not increase, the velocity increase...

No, Boeing does. It is a stabilizer trim runaway. The procedure the Ethiopian guys followed.

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

- At low speed a certain amount of change will trigger a pitching moment, the same amount of change will cause a larger pitching moment at high speed. - the final blow of MCAS at >340 kts put the aircraft in a nose down moment, unable to arrest with elevator alone (while before they were). Anyway, ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

- The force of the stabilizer (the surface controlled by MCAS) is proportional to the airspeed meaning: an input by MCAS might have been recoverable by pulling the yoke at low speed, but not at high speed due to the increased force. This is not just my analysisis, Flight Global: " Proper response t...

- Fact: they did not once touch the throttles. Forces became uncontrollable due to the high speed.
Can you explain this "fact"?

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

I understand that, but I am referring to how political organisations function in relation to admitting faults and elections. Unions are no different. They don't do what is "best", they do what is best in their own interest, and there is a lot of abuse in unions (especially in companies related to st...

* politicians are unwilling to take corrective action, because that would imply admitting fault; politicians never like to do that, especially not with elections approaching rapidly Yet people forget unions ARE politics. There is no difference. Representatives are elected, they have a color, and ha...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

I think you misquoted me here... I never made statements on that subject. As for that statement: my experience is I don't see any problem with that. It can be tough in some isolated cases, yes, no need to deny. But it is much much harder to re-train someone with 2000hrs of single engine piston habi...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

When it goes tits up the MAX requires flying skills which today’s pilots (JAF probably being a rare exception) don’t have anymore! I agree for 100 percent with this statement of Poiu, today newbies come on a right seat with passengers and it is their first real flight in a 737 (or 320) is this norm...

Maybe, maybe not. Reading the Boeing 737 FCTM, it says you might need a lot of altitude. As far as I know JAF cannot create altitude.

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

Sounds like you're reverting to immature logic there, 'we can't have it so you can't either'. So you're blaming us for not rolling over and playing dead when the boss says we should because the others do it? To answer in that same logic, if everyone jumps off a bridge, would you do it too? No not r...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

I believe it’s the same for Barcelona and Marseille (and many other places in Europe). With slots of 1 hour and more in the middle of the night? Don't think so. Marseille seems to be the problem. I have a feeling they "organize" themselves so that sectors with the least traffic become restricted (n...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Read the article please. For the above remark, Geert Noels was not referring to the 737 MAX, but to the 737 Classic (-300, -400 and -500. Production as from 1984). I did read the article and yes he is referring to the MAX. Before the quoted remark he refers to "afplatting" as not enough (which happ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

My above quote is one of the last phrases from Geert Noels' article, and the quote is an excellent summary from his analysis that the Boeing 737 MAX is an unsafe aircraft, but that huge economical interests are trying to overrule that. On top, Geert Noels apparently wrote his article before whistle...

Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

I don't mean that, I mean a German ATCO can sit in Germany and be trained to cover Belgian airspace... Politics seem to imply that are not opposed to that idea.
