General Discussion / Re: steep approaches
« Last post by Chris Liu on Wed 19 Sep 2018, 16:11 »
Hi Niall, welcome abroad! All steep approaches except London City are to be flown by the most senior pilot aboard. So if you're not flying multicrew, that would be you anyway  :)

There is a waive for London City as it's a base, so either pilot may land.

General Discussion / steep approaches
« Last post by Niall Kavanagh on Wed 19 Sep 2018, 14:52 »
Hi All!
excited to be on the roster! 3 flights done...
question: have I got it right: only Captain rating can make steep approaches, or is there a wave for EGLC "based" pilots?
if that is the case, have I missed a step and not "made"a home base originally?
Regards
Niall Kavanagh

That's a cool setup, my CFO would probably allow it but I doubt my bank manager would!

Thanks Chris. The top picture is the flight deck that I typically will do all my q400 flights on, the bottom picture is my main flight deck that I do the jets on. It's laid out for the 737-800 with the throttles and avionics, with the overhead panel to complement it. Fortunately my CFO (wife)  graciously does not inhibit my flight time.  :D :D

General Discussion / Crazy cat flight
« Last post by Gerald Plotts on Sat 18 Aug 2018, 15:13 »
Took off this morning with what I thought was going to be an uneventful flight. Since I flight with a connected laptop and WideFS, I don't always see what happens in the background. My cat loves to climb on my desk and "be my co-pilot", but his morning managed to drop my gear and disconnect LNav. As a consequence I flew about 300 miles out of the way and had to correct, including a mid air re-fueling. (Not easy in the q400 I might add). He didn't like being led away in kitty cuffs

Attached is a pic showing what he caused.

Cheers Chris, can you also check max cruise altitude, sure I had a 26000ft come up the other day but didn't keep the file.

Thanks
Sean
