Calculating Density Altitude with a Pencil We all know that as density altitude increases, there is a corresponding decrease in the power delivered by our airplane’s engine and the effectiveness of our propeller. For a typical non-turbocharged light single-engine airplane, this can result in a takeoff roll that’s 25 percent longer for every 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level. The most dangerous combination of conditions are a heavy load, unfavorable wind, high temperature, high airport elevation and high humidity. Props, Pistons, Old Jets And the Good Ole Days of Flying Length: 74 ft 7 in (22.73 m) Wingspan: 93 ft 3 in (28.42 m) Height: 28 ft 5 in (8.66 m) Wing area: 864 ft2 (80.27 m2) Empty weight: 29,126 lb (13,211 kg)

AMD Drivers Are Still Dead Update: this driver bug has since been fixed – see here. If your X-Plane screen looks like this with HDR on, you may be running the new Catalyst 13-12 drivers. If you can, back up to the Catalyst 13-9 drivers to get back HDR mode. R-4360Ops1 Operating the Pratt & Whitney R-4360-59B by Gerard L. Blake, August 1, 2008 The following narrative reflects some personal experiences gleaned from my somewhat fading memory and appropriate technical data of more than nine years (1961-1970) of operating R-4360-59B engines while I was employed as an instructor Flight Engineer on Boeing C-97F/G aircraft. The Engine The Pratt & Whitney R-4360-59B is a stationary radial engine of 28 cylinders arranged in 4 rows of 7 cylinders in each row.

CIVA Navigation System Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System. Nicknamed "CIVA", An inertial navigation system (INS) is a navigation aid that uses a computer, motion sensors and gyroscopes to continuously calculate via dead reckoning the position, orientation, and velocity of a the aircraft without the need for external references. it was easily the most popular inertial navigation system used before wide adoption of GPS became possible in the 90's. The CIVA could be found on 707, 727, some 737-100s and -200s, the DC-10 and L-1011 Tristar, and on the early 747-100, -200 and -300 variants. This CIVA has primarily been developed to be used with the 727 series of FlyJSim.

Classic Links Last updated on July 15, 2013 Classic Airliner Flight Simulator Sites: Looking for modern or military airliners? Here's where to get the FS jets: Here's all the info about real airliners: Groups restoring the Classic Airliners - let's support them: X-Plane 10 HD Mesh Scenery v2 The “X-Plane 10 HD Scenery Mesh v2″ scenery is completely free to download and free to use. I call it Donationware because if you like the scenery, you are invited to donate for it: A “Known issues” section has been added (and what and how will / can be fixed). I have added a new subtopic on this page describing the difference between HD Mesh Scenery v2 and photoscenery, because obviously still a lot of users are confused!

LH-10 Ellipse Wiki En The LH-10 Ellipse is a two-seat light aircraft kitplane designed by LH Aviation of France. It is a low-wing single-engine pusher configuration with a tandem seating arrangement, and is constructed of composite materials.[1][2] The plane is marketed in a surveillance configuration as the Grand Duc (eagle-owl). Development[edit] The LH-10 Ellipse was conceived by Frenchman Sébastien Lefebvre, starting as an engineering grande école (university) project to conceive "a small plane with different design and performance than available for private pilots".[3] This led to the founding of the company, LH Aviation, in May 2004.

727 Series 200Adv in this package you will get the 727-200Advanced, which is 20 feet longer then the 100, and holds the most passengers. The 727 entered service in the early days of airline service during the 1960s, in a time before advanced flight computers, and many other systems seen in airliners today. With 1832 build between 1963 and 1984, the 727 held the record for most built for a long time before the 737 surpassed it.
