  • This is a very good video and thanks to it I could understand a thing regarding Airbus Fly-by-Wire controls that a friend pilot tried to explain once and I didn't quite figure out. Basically he told me that the side stick has no force feedback and the plane pitches and rolls as commanded and then holds that pitch and roll until you act on the controls again. As a result you fly the plane almost like you were thrust-vectoring a space ship, giving short, subsequent inputs on the side stick. You ca More..

    • @quitefrankly So instead of operating control surfaces the pilot is saying okay give this much pitch and this much roll. Then a computer controls the flight surfaces to make that happen? Makes sense to me. Thanks for the explanation. I was wondering how the airplane wasn't jerking around following the sticks movements.

    • @itstwoam
      Yep! For example, if you tilt the sidestick to the left the aircraft will roll to the left, if when you reached a bank of, say, 10° you let go of the sidestick, the airplane will keep 10° until you give another input. Same for nose-up/nose-down. A set of computers elaborate the inputs and command the control surfaces through electro-mechanical actuators and also adjust the engine thrust so that the set speed is maintained. The airplane will only stop "obeying" if you giv More..

  • Excellent clip...last time I got into the cockpit was flying from Gatwick to Kos around 1990 by asking the crew if our youngest (6yo)could have a look. Luckily he kept his mouth shut and didnt say "your the one that wants a look"!

    • @JIMBO5444 I did it from Frankfurt to Tunis, from leveling out to just before landing, way back when. Flew across the Alps, checked out the radar. Yup, everything was where it was supposed to be. Awesome experience few get to retell.

    • @nuntius_mortis I don't think so actually. There is certainly beauty in what they do; I know a few pilots and admire their job but I'm not sure its the best job in the world.

      That industry is full of trouble with constant cost/salary squeezes and security hassles from the government. I wouldn't necessarily want to work in it.

      Working in porn would be better, IMO, LOL.

    • @nuntius_mortis Yeah I don't blame you. Have you ever read 1984? The US is using that book as a blueprint for reorganizing its society.

  • Was just thinking the real freedom is not being an employee of the corporation that owns this vehicle, but to own and operate your own version. I hate that dumbshit John Travolta, but you have to admit having your airliner you can fly wherever the fuck you want to get the hell out of a dying country at will is almost the definition of freedom. Beautiful.

    • @Saros I've seen his plane land a few times on the North runways at LAX (25 L&R). I used to live beneath the flight path of the South runways (24). I remembered it being pretty screechy but not as bad as the occasional C-5.

    • @OilyStool But wouldn't it be cool that if the shit really hit the fan in this country, you could just load up your shit and your family and just get the fuck out? Wow. That kinda freedom. That's something.

  • Very nice, but Avianca is from Colombia not Brazil.
    Believe it or not, Avianca is the oldest established airline in the western hemisphere, second oldest in the world.
