Jeppesen E6-B Flight Computer Manual


This instruction booklet can be used with the three different E6-B models available from ASA. If you have a different model than the one depicted, some parts of your computer may appear slightly different from the computers pictured in this booklet. However, the calculations are accomplished with the same method and produce the same answers.

Extended Range Operation Two Engine Airplanes



ETOPS is an acronym for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards, an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standard and Recommended Practice (SARP) permitting twin-engined commercial air transporters to fly routes that, at some points, are farther than a distance of 60 minutes' flying time from an emergency or diversion airport. 
This rule allows twin-engined airliners—such as the Airbus A300, A310, A320, A330 and A350 families, the Boeing 737, 757, 767 and 777, and the Embraer E-Jets —to fly long-distance routes that were previously off-limits to twin-engined aircraft. ETOPS operation has no direct correlation to water nor distance over water. It refers to single-engine flight times between diversion airfields—regardless as to whether such fields are separated by water or land.
ETOPS may be replaced by a newer system, referred to as LROPS or "Long Range Operational Performance Standards", which will affect all civil airliners, not just those with a twin-engine configuration. Until the mid-1980s, the term EROPS (extended range operations) was used before being superseded by ETOPS usage. Currently, the ETOPS term is commonly used for operations previously described as LROPS or EROPS.

MD-82 MadDog Cold and Dark Cockpit



The McDonnell Douglas MD80 Series – unfortunately later on part of the Boeing Commercial Airplanes group – is a quiet, fuel-efficient twinjet, which was certified by the Federal Aviation Administration in August 1980 and entered airline service in October 1980. Its Pratt & Whitney JT8D-200 Series engines, combined with its efficient aerodynamic design, allow the MD-80 to meet all current noise regulations while producing operating costs among the lowest in commercial aviation.

ILS Approach Editing Tutorial FS2004 FSX

 
ILS Approach Editing Tutorial. This is a little tutorial (illustrated text in PDF format) on creating ILS approaches using ADE9x and getting them to work with flightsim ATC. It also contains a few notes on flying ILS approaches. The reason this tutorial was created is that the author had such a heck of time getting this to work (adding ILS approaches for runways that had none in the past, and getting ATC to use them), so the tutorial is offered to spare others following the same path some of the troubles and headaches. The tutorial is specifically addressed to FS2004, but almost everything in it should also apply to FSX. To read the tutorial you will need a PDF reader - Acrobat Reader, etc.
