If theres one thing about regional dispatch i dont miss, its that bloody flaps ad. Thankfully it was a rare day where you even needed a takeoff alt and my desks tended to be crj900 heavy.
As There is not a requirement to check the dry runway performance vs wet on a t/o altn.. I do not.So, genuinely curious: how many folks would throw in wet runway numbers with the t/o ALTN in the remarks if the weather was your reasoning, even if the weather wasn't there yet?
Nothing beyond an earnest question.
So I’m curious.., for everyone. Does anyone run landing data for the departure airport for all flights without a T/O altn? Is it a limiting number?There's no regulatory requirement, although my airline runs full landing performance for takeoff alternates as a measure of safety.
It’s nice to know information under normal circumstances, but if you’re returning to field it’s either for an emergency or considered a non-emergency destination change.Even if we’re at max 770,000lbs we can “land anywhere that we can take off from”.
Most run the numbers to check the Autobrake setting for the one or two engine return, but jettison is also an option, if its not time critical.
Obviously numbers will vary between types, but if you can Accelerate-Stop, the in most cases you should be able to Stop?
All transport category aircraft are CAPABLE of landing at MTOW, it is a certification standard. The Captain is using their emergency authority to do so however.Next everyone is gonna tell me they run performance for their ETOPS alternates also.
The flap AD was from when Bombardier made the flaps from this design and material. PlasticFlaps.If theres one thing about regional dispatch i dont miss, its that bloody flaps ad. Thankfully it was a rare day where you even needed a takeoff alt and my desks tended to be crj900 heavy.
