Re: Favorite Airline

http://www.aviationwa.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/20160703_9M-MXJ_David_Eyre-1.jpg I will have to go with this. Main reason is due to limited sampling size. The other reason is nostalgia - my first experience of a jetliner being the MAS 737-200; The crew are better trained and not as agitatin...

Re: Boeing 757 Testing Shows Airplanes Vulnerable to Hacking

Yeah, obviously I am no expert at this, but sometimes I think the western world had lagged in security for the past 10 years or so, and failed to upkeep /upgrade older tech to be less vulnerable. But obviously again I don't know what I am talking about ;P. Anyway, the point is, everything seems to b...

Boeing 757 Testing Shows Airplanes Vulnerable to Hacking

“We got the airplane on Sept. 19, 2016. Two days later, I was successful in accomplishing a remote, non-cooperative, penetration,” said Robert Hickey, aviation program manager within the Cyber Security Division of the DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate. “[Which] means I didn’t have an...

Re: How flying seriously messes with your mind

I meant the miscarriages in that study you mentioned. Along with a bunch of other occupational hazards of course. I'm aware there are places that are naturally radioactive. Wasn't there a particular beach that everyone goes to that had far higher radiation than normal levels? Even naturally occurrin...

Re: And now Manhattan!

I thought he drove a truck into a bus + a bunch of people on the bike lane. Being a cyclist myself - to have a truck suddenly strike you from out of nowhere in what was supposed to be a safe lane for biking, that sucks. I did not read too much into this news because I was thinking "oh, it's tha...

Re: How flying seriously messes with your mind

The problem with radiation is, it adds up. A little now and then is in most cases not that problematic. A little every day is another story. The number of miscarriages by former flight-attendants is for example higher than even for radiology personal in a hospital. The University Munich did some st...

Re: When 'psycho' automation left this pilot powerless

Russian investigators have detailed a serious loss-of-control incident last month involving a Utair Boeing 737-500 on approach to Moscow Vnukovo. Interesting news. Although it wasn't very clear on what exactly was the cause. Perhaps a new thread on this to discuss about it. *actually, on second tho...

Re: When 'psycho' automation left this pilot powerless

Boeing and Airbus are just as good and safe as each other, they just have different philosophy . That has always been the point of the discussion here. If either was unsafe, it wouldn't be certified still. I believe this is what we refer to as the Strawman arguement. Nobody is saying if either was ...

Re: When 'psycho' automation left this pilot powerless

It cannot be overridden by the pilot -- basically the same as the Airbus stall protection -- cannot be overridden by pilot -- based on AoA. As I said, I don't know AoA. And also, as I also said, I don't see a scenario where stalling the aircraft is a good idea. The protection built in here, whether...
