Re: The Airbus general technical questions topic

Ailerons raising after touchdown is indeed a newer feature. It came with the ELAC L97 software update. If the aircraft has ELAC computers with software version L97 or newer, it will feature this behaviour on touchdown.

Re: The Airbus general technical questions topic

When parked the A320 ailerons will be dropped down indeed as long as the hydraulic pressure in the Green and Blue hydraulic system is not sufficient to overcome them from dropping down due to gravity. A similar effect happens with the elevators, but in this case it's related to the pressure in the G...

Re: Unknown from Antwerp harbour

No experience either. However, they don't need an approval from the authorities, provided that the land owner agrees and the departure spot fulfills the specifications described in the KB.

Good point about the checks and actions indeed, I guess it will remain a mystery

Re: Unknown from Antwerp harbour

Wouldn't it just be cheaper and faster to depart in the port straight away instead of additional transport to a registered heliport?

Re: Unknown from Antwerp harbour

So the departure could very well have taken place somwhere near the Berendrecht Lock indeed. According to ads-b data the last flight was on 8 May with destination Port of Montréal, it probably arrived in Antwerp via ship.

Re: Unknown from Antwerp harbour

In Belgium, aircraft (including helicopters) may only operate from registered aerodromes, as listed in the AIP. According to the 'koninklijk besluit' from 29 MAY 2013 ( NL / FR ) landing/departing outside aerodromes/heliports is allowed with a helicopter under certain conditions. Fyi C-GIRI is regi...

Re: ACE Belgium Freighters in 2019

It seems that the database is just not online indeed. Strange thing is that the issue only seems to exist in the weekend. Earlier this week the register was available and when checking back then OO-ACE was not in it yet. Same story last week and weekend...

ACE Belgium Freighters in 2019

This week there has been a test flight with the company's first Boeing 747. According to FR24 the flight identification was OOACE. Could someone confirm whether or not the aircraft is already in the Belgian register ? A few days ago it wasn't and apparently there is an issue with the database at thi...

Below are the regulations for civil aircraft in Belgium and Luxembourg (for detailed info please check AIP ENR 1.10 §1.5.2). Aircraft identification (maximum 7 characters) on the ATC flightplan and thus the one that shall be transmitted by the mode S transponder consists of one of the following two ...

Re: ADS-B reception in the kitchen: lovely!

Mode A 1000 is one of the non-discrete mode A codes (others being 2000, 7000,...) and this one can only be assigned by ATC if the aircraft is equipped with a mode S transponder and the filed route from current position until parking position at destination will completely take place in mode S operat...

Re: BRU 14/03/2019

I saw already Singapore Cargo, Emirates Cargo and now Asiana Cargo all landing on 25L. Specific reason? Most probably due to works at north side of A pier. Due to an erected crane some approach procedures (ILS CAT I 25R and RNP 25R amongst others) are not available. A0801/19 From:12 MAR 19 09:30 Ti...

Given the fact that the fleet is not growing, which flights will be discontinued? Will Washington be re-started?
SN operated IAD flights seem to be bookable in time frame 31 MAR 2019 - 26 OCT 2019.

Re: VLM Airlines (Brussels, ex-Thomas Cook) news 2018

G-ZBAF seems to be in Dublin and it fits the description indeed. However, according to planespotters.net and rzjets.net it will be joining the fleet of Titan Airways as G-POWT.
