To the first part of your question, the airplane is not moving BECAUSE his yoke movements are "strong and fast". Experienced pilots can feel a gust and respond with a control input to counter it before it has enough time to affect the aircraft. (You really can't appreciate this from a camera fixed to the airframe.) As mentioned in a comment, this ...

Why pilot make so much input,I dont see that plane is moving even his yoke movements are huge and fast? The plane isn’t moving much because as soon as the pilot senses either wing lifting, he is making a correction to counteract it. Since he is flying in a gusty crosswind, that means many such corrections are required to keep the plane stable. For person ...

As already said in the other answers, the "huge" inputs to the yoke are to keep the aircraft stable on the approach path. There is no "panic" involved, it is simply necessary due to the gusty conditions. Let me expand a bit more on your second question: Can airliners land with auto pilot on strong windy day [...]? The answer to this a ...

What powers the airconditioning on most airliners is APU or main engine compressor bleed, which is being supplied at fairly high pressure, say, 80 psi, and temperature, around 3-400F, to the air conditioning packs. You normally have a choice to select APU or main engine bleed. You will obviously use APU bleed on the ground before engine start, but also may ...

Why pilot make so much input,I dont see that plane is moving even his yoke movements are huge and fast? For person who not fly,it looks panic. Look at the artificial horizon. It has a scale at the top that allows you to see even small variations in bank angle. When looking there, you'll see that the plane IS actually moving a lot. E.g. at 00:44 in your ...

I think it is interesting to look at this problem from a control engineering perspective. Towards the runway, it is more important to track the centerline and glideslope. In control terms, better reference tracking is achieved by a higher control bandwidth ('crossover frequency'). As a crude first approximation, an airplane is a rotational inertia system and ...

On 28 August 2006, a collision occurred between a business jet and a glider near Reno, Nevada, at approximately 16 000 feet. See here for details. To partially quote from the aviation-safety.net summary at the link above: The Hawker 800XP departed Carlsbad (CLD) on a flight to Reno (RNO). Descending for Reno, the flight crew was cleared by air traffic ...

It's not a normal A/C unit Aircraft do not use a Freon based compressor vapor-liquid transition heat pump type arrangement the way every home, car, boat and train does. They use a simpler cycle, because most turbine aircraft have a great abundance of compressed air available, or are obliged to have compressors anyway for pressurization. The compressed-air A/...

The running engines power commercial airliner interior climate and environmental control through their built in electrical generators and bleed air systems. The units that supply the interior air in the correct temperature and pressure for passengers are sometimes called PACK as an acronym for Pneumatic Air Cycle Kit. When the engines are off, the APU (...

To answer your question the limit is 1mm. It cant be less than this value. At lengths greater than this value brake wear can be measured without any specific brake temperature value. However at values less than 1mm Airbus has a specific brake temperature of 60 degrees Celsius to measure the brake wear. At high brake temperatures the heat from the carbon ...
