  • What's the procedure to use the Bendix/King KAP 140 autopilot in the Cessna piston singles to climb to a certain altitude and then capture it and level off?

  • Anecdotally I have heard of various things that I can do to make steel brakes last longer before they have to be replaced, and they make sense but how much does it really help? Things that I have hea...

  • I'm aware of some aircraft that have systems to calculate weight and balance. For those aircraft that don't have such systems, how does the pilot know they are within weight and balance limits?

  • I have a question regarding this Missed Approach Procedure Im in my final approach segment and reach DME 1.1 and the runway is not in sight so I start my Missed approach, how should it be executed? Since I have to hold I'd start a tear drop entry turning to heading 125° and then left turn intercepting 275° course inbound. This option sounds viable to me I first do a right 360° as charted (???) and going to the VOR and then starting probably a parallel entry into the hold. This doesn't sound viable to me Textual description is also clear about that 360° If it 1.) why would they chart

  • Maximum Taxi Speed Ygor Montenegro

    Which is the maximum speed that an airliner is limited to while taxiing? I know that during 90 degree turns it is 10 knots, but what about long, straight taxiways? 20 knots? 25? 30? More broadly, wh...

  • Forgive my total lack of aviation knowledge. I just flew out of SFO and was fascinated by the fact that pairs of planes alternated between departing on 28L + 28R (simultaneously) and arriving on 19L/R...

  • I get that standard brakes and carbon fiber brakes are made out of two different materials, but some of the procedures are different between them. For instance, they recommend "heavy" braking on la...

  • Most (all?) airlines require the use of a stabilized approach, and it is constantly referred to as a safer way to land an airplane. What are the criteria for an approach to be considered stabilized...

  • Manual (in my case a 1972 Cessna 182P) simply says Full Power under the Normal Take-Off procedure. The reasoning I've heard is to try not to over-stress the engine (whatever that means exactly... can have until I'm far enough off the ground to have options if the engine quits or sputters (turn back if high enough, or glide to a suitable spot if not). I'm asking is there an "official procedure

  • Below the transition altitude (18,000 feet in the US), pilots use local pressure readings to calibrate their altimeters. Above the transition altitude, pilots set a standard pressure to calibrate the...

  • Pilots flying VFR follow clearances like the "mall visual" or "east channel departure." These are based on features of the local area that are easy to identify. Are procedures like this official? Whe...

  • What does ATC do when there is an emergency? This could be a tower or an ARTCC being evacuated or otherwise unusable. How do they decide whether to close the airport/airspace? What do they do with t...

  • The landing gear should be down in order to qualify as a stabilized approach. Other than that, what are the guidelines on when to deploy landing gear on approach?

  • I saw a sign at the Smithsonian about the space shuttle where it said that their gear was not extended until 50 feet above the ground. I've searched and searched for something definitive that had the...
