Jepp received numerous plaques and awards over the years, but he was most proud of the letters he received from pilots who said, “Jepp, you saved my life, made my flying safer and easier, and given me great confidence on those dark, stormy nights.” • Began flying as a barnstormer with Tex Rankin’s Flying Circus. • Flew for Fairchild Aerial Survey, photographing the Mississippi Delta area around New Orleans. • In the 1930’s, Jepp realized the need for accurate navigational aids for pilots. Before this innovation, pilots relied on Rand-McNally Road maps. Highlighted landmarks, elevations of obstructions and airport runways while flying mail runs. • Manuals prove effective, and United Airlines bought the charts for their pilots. • During World War II, “Jepp Charts” were adapted by the Navy as their standard flight manual. • After World War II – USAF and World’s Commercial Airlines contracted Jepp’s manuals and navigation charts.

HD Captain Sim 757-200/300/Freighter FSX Startup Checklist

November 14, 2010


***NOT FOR FLIGHT!!!*** ***READ THE VIDEO COMMENTS IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION*** Your question has probably already been answered 5 times there. This is the remake of my Captain Sim 757 for FSX Startup procedures, now in HD. Because I took the time to explain a few things (rather than cluttering the screen with annotations), this video ended up about twice as long as the original. I will think about making more videos for the rest of the lists, or at least those that are practical in a sim environment. Just making about 30 minutes of tutorial videos and editing them and such took an entire weekend. So, with me doing lots of flight training right now, it may not be possible for me to sacrifice another weekend any time soon unless the weather is bad. Enjoy and send comments if you have questions or whatever. I’ll try to help answer them when able.

Colgan Flight 3407 NTSB Animation of Buffalo Accident Q400

May 18, 2009

Courtesy: National Transportation Safety Board

The NTSB.GOV website keeps going down, so here’s the animation.

This three-dimensional (3-D) animated reconstruction shows the last 2 minutes of the February 12, 2009, accident involving a Bombardier DHC-8-400, N200WQ, operated by of Colgan Air, Inc., which crashed about 5 nautical miles northeast of Buffalo-Niagara International Airport, Buffalo, New York, while on an instrument landing system approach to runway 23. During the approach, a pitchup motion occurred, followed by a left roll and then a right roll. During these maneuvers, both the stick shaker and stick pusher were activated, and the speed decreased. After further pitch and roll excursions, the airplane entered a steep descent from which it did not recover.
The animation shows excerpts from the flight data recorder (FDR), the pit voice recorder (CVR) transcript, recorded radar data, and aircraft performance data. It does not depict the weather or visibility conditions at the time of the accident. The animation does not include audio.
The upper portion of the animation shows a 3-D model of the airplane and the airplanes motions during the accident sequence. In this area, selected content from the CVR transcript or other annotations are superimposed as text at the time that the event occurred. All times (in eastern standard time) are shown on the right side of the screen.
The lower portion of the animation depicts instruments and indicators, which display selected FDR or calculated parameters. The instruments and indications are shown in three sections, which are (from left to right):
•Airspeed, airspeed tape, low speed cue, attitude indicator showing pitch and roll attitude, altitude, altitude tape, rate of climb, and heading;
•Stick shaker and stick pusher indicated as text, control wheel/column icon depicting the control wheel (rotating right or left) and control column (moving up or down) inputs, and an indicator showing rudder pedal inputs; and
•The power lever and condition lever as indicators, the flap handle selection as an indicator, and auto pilot status and gearhandle position indicated as text.

Flight 1549 Heroes – Capt. Sullenberger, Flight Crew & First Responders

February 13, 2009

This is a Genuine G-Shot prepared in tribute to a true hero: Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, the Airbus 320 pilot who made the remarkable emergency miracle water landing on January 15,2009, of US Airway Flight 1549 on New York’s Hudson River in New York City and is posted today on Captain Sullenberger’s Birthday, Jan. 23, 2009.

I hope to meet you tomorrow when the City Council and Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich honors you as a home-town hero and present to you a special video DVD presentation in honor of all the Heroes of the Miracle of USA Airways Flight 1549, your well disciplined, trained, experienced and courageous Flight crew and all the “first responders”, public safety and Joe-citizen alike, as deep down we are all heroes and we know one when we see one.

Experience does indeed count, I am about the same age as Capt. Sully, with 27 years experience as a San Francisco 911 police, fire and medical dispatchers with the police department, City and County of SF Department of Emergency Management, and previous experience in public service as Mayor and Councilman of the City of San Bruno. I can also attest to the value of training, discipline and experience and the need to keep a cool head as so many lives depends upon our every move when seconds really do count and people must do the right thing.

Well done Captain Sully and all the heroes of Flight 1549 — We all have reason to be proud of you as a real American hero.

NEW YORK (AP) — A cool-headed pilot maneuvered his crippled jetliner over New York City and ditched it in the frigid Hudson River on Thursday; all 155 on board were pulled to safety as the plane slowly sank. It was, as New York Governor Patterson said, “a miracle on the Hudson.”

One victim suffered two broken legs, a paramedic said, but there were no other reports of serious injuries, just lots of wet socks, Capt. Sully walked the entire length of the sinking aircraft twice to make sures all passengers had safely exited the plane.

US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., struck a flock of birds after takeoff just minutes earlier at LaGuardia Airport, apparently disabling both engines.

The pilot, identified as Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III of Danville, Calif., “was phenomenal,” passenger Joe Hart said. “He landed it — I tell you what, the impact wasn’t a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you.”

“Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river,” he said.

No doubt due to his 40 years experience as a glider pilot.

Capt. Sully thank you for a job well done!
