Meditation 99 “Life is a Dream.” Meditation 99: Life is a Dream Metaphors draw two unlikely suspects together in an illuminating way. The metaphor “Achilles is a lion” is not literally true, unless I have a lion named “Achilles.” Yet it draws attention to the courage and strength of the hero with a punch that straight prose lacks. “X is brave and strong” applies to many people. “Life is a dream” is a well known metaphor. At this point, we might ask why “Life is a Dream” has captured so much attention over the years? Another way I have resisted the life/dream metaphor is by rejecting mysticism as not sufficiently rational. After coming to these dark reflections, I found a question to move forward. First of all, a dream is not illusory on its own terms. From this standpoint, there is a deep identity between dreams and waking life.

Flight Controls - General - AirSimmer Support 2.3.4 Speedbrake Control Speedbrake function is achieved by spoilers 2, 3 and 4. The pilot controls the speedbrakes using the speedbrake lever. Speedbrake is inhibited if: - Both SEC 1 and SEC 3 fail - An elevator has a fault (in this case, only spoilers 3 and 4 are inhibited) - Angle-of-attack protection is active - Flaps are in CONF FULL (A320 and A319), or CONF 3 (A321). This does not apply to the A318. - Thrust Levers are above MCT position - Alpha Floor activation When these conditions occur when the speedbrakes are extended, they are automatically retracted and stay retracted until the condition(s) disappears and the pilot resets the speedbrake lever.

Alternative Movies Boeing 757 Air Systems :: Air Conditioning skip navigation Biggles Software ERROR 404 - Page not found The dog ate that page! Biggles Software can only supply FCOM and AOM-based software to Aircraft Operators and TRTOs, and to pilots who are currently operating the aircraft type. To ensure better compliance with manufacturer Copyright, Confidentiality and Licensing requirements - whilst respecting your data protection and confidentiality - Biggles Software is developing a more robust method of determining individual eligibility. This will probably require individuals to complete some form of application stating which airline they work for and in what capacity, etc, and to provide documentary evidence of which FCOM or AOM is applicable, its revision status and date of issue, etc. It is hoped that it will not take too long to develop a manageable, compliant process but, until then, safe flying! Update: A compliant process has now been agreed and is in the development stage. Thank you to everyone who has been in touch!
