    What is the difference between technical consumption and fuel drain in a fuel calculation system? Both of them reduce the amount of block fuel of aircraft. I assume technical consumption is not equal with trip fuel usage?!

    . Are there any technical specifications and measurements that clearly define the difference between the two mentioned configurations? I understand that cruciform means "similar to a cross" but it would be interesting to know, as previously mentioned, if there are specifics about this definition making it clear for everyone from a technical point of view.

  • Inspired by a discussion in chat. Most GA piston singles are powered by either Lycoming or Continental engines. The engine designs used by both manufacturers are broadly similar (4-cycle, horizontally-opposed, gasoline-powered, air-cooled), and they're both generally available with either carburetors or fuel injection, but I know they're not "identical products". What are some of the differences between the designs used by the two manufacturers, and what practical implications do those choices have for pilots?

  • This question is somewhat related to this other one. I listened to this exchange between a helicopter and Newark. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHNvXPbZ7WI The helicopter wants to land at Newark. The controller tells the helicopter to remain clear of the Class B. I'm aware that the controllers must give clearance to operate in certain classes of airspace, and the helicopter wasn't granted clearance to do so. Why was the helicopter denied (as far as can be deduced)? What should the pilot have done differently, either to get clearance to land at Newark or to anticipate not being able to?

  • , segment, or route between the radio fixes defining the airway, segment, or route. (Both quotes taken straight from the Pilot/Controller Glossary) The only difference in language is the bit about 22 miles from a VOR. Therefore, when you're within those 22 miles, there's no practical difference between a MEA and a MOCA, right? If that's true, why is there an 1800 foot difference between...As we all know from our instrument training, the MOCA is: MINIMUM OBSTRUCTION CLEARANCE ALTITUDE (MOCA)- The lowest published altitude in effect between radio fixes on VOR airways, off-airway

  • As an engineer I can explain in very technical terms exactly what makes an airplane fly, however, it isn't easily understood by non-technical people. How can I explain it to Grandma or a nine year old in a way that isn't really incorrect but is far less technical than what we learn as pilots?
