  • Just how structurally sound are the elevators on T-Tailed aircraft. Shouldn't they be braced ?

    Best answer: Very structurally sound, look at the C-141 and C-5.

    The pulleys are composite so they don't damage the cable. Metal on metal isn't a good combination for control cables.

  • Can I still get my private pilots certification?

    Best answer: Whether or not you can obtain an airman's medical certificate allowing you to learn to fly depends on why you have to take antibiotics every day. The medication itself isn't grounds for rejection but the condition being treated might be. The only way to find out is to consult an aviation medical examiner.

    Best answer: From 1979 untul recently Iran couldn't buy any new western aircraft. It had to make do with what it already had, it bought some from Soviet Union/CIS, and second hand aircraft it bought under somewhat shady circumstances. This is why Iran Saha airlines continued to fly Boeing 707 into 2010s, long after it was gone from all other airline fleets.

    The 747-131 Iran got were built for TWA, but TWA sold them even before they were delivered. One crashed in Spain in the 1970s. The IRIAF had added a refueling boom and the boom operator station to at least one in the 1990s or 2000s. When not used as tankers they carry personnel or cargo as needed. At least one -131 is grounded and is used as a source of spare parts to keep the others ones flying.

  • Is there pilot shortage in usa and worldwide?

    Best answer: Not just pilots. The biggest problem in the USA is the baby boomer generation is now retiring. We are losing doctors, nurses, pilots, etc at a rate of hundreds a week. There are not enough people in training to replace them. Adding to that, they "improved the qualifications" of training so where you use to have hospital run nursing programs they are now all AD and BS programs, which cost a lot more, more than many people can afford. Same with all the other professions. Same with pilots. The USAF does not take 1000 guys and enter them into pilot training with the idea that half will fail, they start with 250 and make sure they will pass, even if they should fail. It does not work. The FAA increased the number of hours you have to fly to just get to be a co-pilot. Assuming you can find a plane to fly for $100 an hour, you need to spend $100,000 just to get the required hours. They have made it so hard and expensive to be a pilot that the shortage is going to continue. What will save the military is robot planes, something that civilians will not accept in regards to airliners.

  • Question about planes in the sky ?

    Best answer: Your stupid home computer flight tracker is NOT all that accurate, and it only shows aircraft that are flying with an instrument flight plan. There could be dozens of airplanes flying around your house at any given time that NEVER show up on your flight tracker program.

    Best answer: Aircraft cleaners don’t usually get paid well and you have to clear up some pretty awful stuff including piddle, poo, snot/boogers, vomit and even blood and semen on occasions.

    You have to do the job at breakneck speeds around loads of other people and in some fairly tight and awkward physical positions. During that time the aircraft air conditioning/heating is often turned off so it can be very uncomfortable.

    You also have to arrive at work quite a while before your paid shift starts because like everyone else who works airside you must clear the airport security checks and that can be a slow process. You also get checked as you leave airside after your shift has finished as some gangs have been known to hide contraband items on aeroplanes for cleaners or other staff to find and carry out. Depending upon the laws in your country those security checks are often outside of your paid working hours.

    You can progress to management but pay remains poor until you become very senior.
