Today's video is about a very interesting topic, "How does WIFI work on airplanes?" I´m pretty sure many of you have seen advertisement for this new kind of service on aeroplanes. And a lot of airlines are suiting up the older and newer planes with WIFI antennas which are primarily installed on the upper part of the fuselage. If you´ve ever wondered what is below that little hump at the rear upper part of the fuselage, that´s the satellite antenna tracking Ka- or Ku-band satellites to receive and transmit your e-mails and other messages. And as you might not have known but airplane WiFi has been around since the mid 2000´s. At the time the ATG-system was state of the art, where you had two antennas installed on the airplane receiving and transmitting signals to land-based cell towers, very similar to the cellular network towers providing 4G LTE connection for your phone. Over time the system advanced as the ATG system only had a narrow bandwidth allowing only 3 MBit/s at the consumer, therefore the satellite-based technology came to play. The Ku-band was introduced which was formerly used by the military. A ground-based satellite dish/antenna, sends an uplink towards a satellite, which reflects the signal towards the aeroplane. On top of the plane sits the bulky rotary antenna, which is comparable to your TV satellite dish attached to your home. It picks up the signal which is transmitted in the 11-20 GHz range, decodes the signal via the onboard server and sends to the onboard WiFi router. The speed was a lot faster than the ATG system but top out at 40-50 MBit/s. Unfortunately the system has a few disadvantages, one of them to mention is that the speed got slower and slower the more airplanes were transmitting and receiving over the same satellite. And the other setback is the large antenna, increasing the airplane weight and aerodynamic drag, therefore resulting in a higher fuel consumption. And who has to pay for that? YOU, the passenger! Finally, I´ll mention the Ka-Band technology and what more is to come in the future. I hope you enjoy this video!

  2. In this video I explain if you can dim the cockpit lights, and why you may do so! Comment below what video you would like to see next! INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb WATCH I´m wearing: https://goo.gl/XDnL3D Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel! Today´s video is another very interesting topic about the "Can you dim the cockpit lights?" We´ll look at a facts why it is necessary to dim the cockpit lights and especially what´s that got to do with your eyes! I´m pretty sure you´ve also dealt with eye adaptation in one way or the other. But in my video you´ll understand why it´s so necessary to be able to dim all cockpit lights and instruments. And this applies not just for airliners, little Cessnas and Pipers are also capable of dimming each instrument light or are turned off entirely and red flood light installed on the cockpit ceiling is turned on to illuminate all radials and dials. But watch until the end to see more. This is another reason why the eyesight of a pilot has to be in good condition otherwise. Please don´t ask me any question if you can fly with various eye sight deficiencies, I´m not a medical doctor and don´t want to give any false advice on how you may proceed in case you want to become a pilot. Please seek your nearest aviation doctor and ask him on how you should proceed in case something is wrong with your eyes.

Now before we talk about a normal set of sunglasses and a pair of polarized ones and how they affect your vision we quickly need to discuss unpolarized and polarized light waves. The light emitting from the sun releases light particles, better known as Photons. These photons vibrate up and down, or side to side creating a bundle of light waves flying towards planet earth. Which means that the light provided by the sun flys in horizontal or vertical waves, therefore making the light waves unpolarized. But, the sunlight can untangle itself pretty easily. Those light particles just have to strike something, like a lake or in our case clouds, and they'll start vibrating in the same direction. Meaning all the photons start oscillating in the direction that's perpendicular to that surface. So, the light particles that bounce off a horizontal surface will then begin oscillating vertically. Meaning the reflected particles suddenly have fallen into sync reflecting as polarized light. Which brings us back to our polarized sunglasses. I admit the name was not well chosen, they should have called them "sunglasses with vertical or horizontal bars", which are able to block polarized light. So let´s say the sun light which gets reflected off a cloud, is coming vertically towards you, giving you that nasty glare. Now if you put on your polarized sunglasses with "horizontal bars" in them, they will block the vertical light waves and reduce the glare. Now you´ll think that´s great, cause pilots see sunlight reflecting clouds most of their time, so why can´t they wear polarized sunglasses? Here comes the problem! Watch the rest of the video to learn more about polarized sunglasses influence your vision in a modern airliner cockpit!

FREE Audible TRIAL with a FREE BOOK at http://adbl.co/2wmOvI6 INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel! In today´s video will be talking about the water and waste system of airplanes. Or you might say, how do airplanes deal with your sh...?! The system consists of the following components: - toilets - meters of piping - 170-liter waste tank - couple valves - vacuum generator - drain host - servicing panels. So let´s imagine we´re in cruise, you´ve been to the toilet and you press the flush button. An electrical signal is sent to a flush control unit and checks the airplane´s current altitude via a pressure switch. The control unit opens up the water valve to rinse the toilet and a second later you can hear the flush valve opening up and sucking out your disposal. But the question is how? The waste system, pipes, and waste tank are constantly subject to suction pressure, as there is a pipe leading to the outer skin of the airplane. So as soon as the flush valve opens up, at the bottom of the toilet bowl, the differential pressure between the cabin pressure and the outer atmospheric pressure, sucks and pushes the waste through the pipes to the waste tank. That´s one of the reasons why the toilet door has no door seals and vent grid, otherwise, the suction would be strong enough to suck out the air within that small toilet. So to get rid of a smelly odor, you might as well press the flush button a couple of times. And to clarify one on-going rumor, No your waste do NOT go overboard. But see more as I´ll also explain the potable water system and how both systems are drained on ground.

Today's video will all be about the fuel jettison procedure, or better known as "FUEL DUMPING". Why do pilots dump costly fuel overboard, after you´ve just paid for it as a passenger? And what a terrible pollution of the environment! So pilots have to have a good enough reason why they do that? As jets began flying with US airlines in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the FAA rule in effect at the time mandated that if the ratio between an aircraft's maximum structural takeoff weight and its maximum structural landing weight was greater than 105%, the aircraft had to have a fuel dump system installed. Aircraft such as the Boeing 707 and 727 and the Douglas DC-8 had fuel dump systems. Any of those aircraft needing to return to a takeoff airport above the maximum landing weight would jettison an amount of fuel sufficient to reduce the aircraft's weight below that maximum landing weight limit and then land. And in our case, we have a medical emergency just beyond the coast of Scottland which forces us to land at the next suitable airport, which is Dublin. Then we´ll do the math on how much fuel we actually have to dump in order to safely land at Dublin airport below the maximum landing weight to not damage the airplane. We´ll quickly go over the fuel dumping panel and the actual fuel dumping hose of the Boeing 747. I hope you enjoy this basic explanation video on the fuel dumping procedure.

Within the first part of the video, I´ll be explaining the approach and landing part of Concorde, flying a standard ILS approach into New York John F. Kennedy airport. You´ll see some great footage from the inside of the cockpit during approach and landing and I`ll mention some interesting facts about the different procedure until Concorde is fully established on the ILS. Approach speeds, pitch attitude, when to extend the landing gear and how to deal with the famous Concorde nose. Later in the video, I´ll be going over some mind-blowing facts which made Concorde so special and different from other airliners. Did you know, Concorde had no flaps or speed brakes/ground spoilers? Or as you extended the gear, the call out was "Gear down, four green"! Why four? You´ll see in the video! And finally who flew with Concorde, and why the British public was so proud to be a part of Concorde? You´ll even see a short clip of a formation flight with the famous Royal Airforce - Red Arrows. And my final words about how I feel about Concorde and the future of supersonic flight. Thank you very much for your support throughout this video series. Also a huge thank you to Brooklands museum near London, for making this video possible. By the way, all the earnings of the three part series will be donated to the volunteers working at Brooklands museum, as they were so incredibly helpful during my time with Concorde "DELTA GOLF".

Today's video will all be about how airplanes deal with lightning strikes. How dangerous is it to fly nearby a thunderstorm, what happens if you get hit by lightning and what are further consequences. I´m honoured to take part in an experiment at the "Deutsches Museum" here in Munich Germany, to show what happens once a plane gets hit by lightning. Their installation to show the effects of the Faraday cage are unique in Germany. The "Deutsches Museum" is definitely worth a visit whilst you're here in Munich. Check out their website at: www.deutsches-museum.de to get your tickets online and jump the queue upon arrival. I´ll shortly mention how pilots talk to ATC on how to get an avoidance heading to circumnavigate a thunderstorm. I´ll show you what a thunderstorm looks like on a weather radar, your first steps to reduce risks of any damage to your plane. I´ll show you the entry and exit points after a plane got hit by lightning and the corresponding burn marks. Regardless of that pilots will always do their best to circumnavigate thunderstorms as the airplane could get damaged to effects of turbulence rather than lightning strikes.

In today´s video, I´ll be showing you some key facts what you have to know about cockpit windows. What they are made of (Herculite II glass), how thick they are, how the electrical heating system works and we´ll take a closer look at the Airbus Sliding window operation. I´ll mention all the little clips and pockets around the sliding window and what they are good for: -Headset cable retainer -Dimmable light above the airport charts -Paper clip -Pen Pocket -EFB(Electronic Flight Bag) pocket -Cup Holder -Sun Visor -Two control handles Did you know that pilots have a fridge in the cockpit? Or that the cockpit sliding window is the secondary escape route for the pilots in case of an emergency situation after an unfortunate landing? Can you imagine how much six Airbus Cockpit windows cost? I´ll shortly mention the Airbus SMOKE REMOVAL CHECKLIST, but can´t go into further detail, that´s a whole other video.

TFC-Flight Training Centre: https://goo.gl/xAZEBp INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel, today´s video will all be about the Airbus A320 Fire Protection System. The aircraft fire protection system consists of a fire and overheat detection and extinguishing system for both engines and the APU. Besides that, there is a smoke detection and extinguishing system in the cargo compartments and lavatories. Plus, smoke detectors in the avionic bay, and portable fire extinguisher for the cockpit and cabin crew. Each engine has two extinguisher bottles which electrically operated squibs to discharge their contents so those the APU, except it only has one fire extinguisher bottle. And the pilots control and discharge both systems via the Engine and APU Fire Panel on the overhead panel. So both systems have a fire and overheat detection system consisting of: -Two identical fire detection loops (A and B) mounted in parallel -And a Fire Detection Unit (FDU) The loops consist of three to four sensing elements for each engine, one in the pylon nacelle, one in the engine core and one in the fan section, and one independant sensing unit in the APU compartment. So when is the fire warning triggered? See more in the video !!! Big thank you to TFC-Käufer for making this video possible and providing me with their huge range of various flight simulators. Their flight training centre in Essen/Germany is the home of many flight simulators including 2 full flight A320´s in which I have my check-flights every 6 months.

Today's video will all be about "WHAT IS A SQUAWK CODE, and what is it good for?" As you get your IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) departure clearance, the ATC controller will give you a pre assigned four decimal code. After acknowledging the clearance you use the little numbered keyboard on your transponder to enter the give four decimal code and depending on your airline or airport procedure you set the transponder to the AUTO position. Meaning your transponder is set and ready to transmit that code and that code you´ve just set that´s the so called squawk code. So as take off, and the transponder comes fully active you turn up on the ATC controllers radar screen, but it won´t just be a blip indicating your airplane is in the air, it will also show the 4 digit squawk code, your current altitude plus your callsign. As you are now under radar control, the ATC controller can also look up your flight plan, so he knows where you´re flying to, the amount of passengers, crew, and fuel you have on board, and much more. Now depending on the airplane size and manufacturer, the transponder can come in different modes. For instance, little Cessnas or other smaller aircraft within the General Aviation category don´t necessarily need a transponder which transmits the airplanes´ altitude. Therefore a mode“Alfa" transponder will do the job, meaning it will only transmit the airplanes position and squawk code. But be aware the places where you can fly without an altitude reporting transponder are becoming less and less. To be on the safer side, your plane has to have a Mode "Charlie" transponder which transmits the planes´ position and its barometric altitude and squawk code. Obviously, those are a little bit more expensive, but the ATC controllers and other pilots benefit from investment and adding a TCAS system to it, you´ll feel a whole lot safer when flying around on weekends where the airspace is packed with weekend warriors. And as just shown before a mode Sierra transponder, which is above all other transponder modes and can also be used for data link messaging. But more to see within the video. The preset codes you have to memorize for are 7500 Hijacking Seven Five - Man with a knife 7600 Loss of communications Seven Six I need my radio fixed 7700 Emergency Seven Seven - I´m falling from heaven The follow up video about the Transponder and it´s buttons and switches will follow soon.

  13. INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel todays questions which was sent in by one of my instagram followers.“Joe do airliners have an ignition key?". That question is justifable and made me smile. Okay let´s work from bottom to top, starting with gliders. Gliders are first and foremost locked up in a hangar or car trailers, and most of them don´t have a lock at all, to enter the cockpit you grab the release handle through the fresh air window to unlock the glass dome. And as most gliders don´t have a motor, they don´t have an ignition key. Now let´s look at the cockpit of a Cessna 172. These planes are very often parked outside and are accessible to anybody who´s working or just wandering around at the airfield, so therefore it makes sense to have a key which locks the doors and other hatches to make it at least more difficult for thieves to enter the cockpit. And there is a market out there selling alarms for these aircrafts, trust me airplanes do get stolen once in a while. But the key´s purpose is not only to lock the doors, it is also used as ignition key to start the engine. Because most airplanes in the general aviation category have electric starter motor, smiliar to the one in your car, the turning of the key acts as a mechanical switch, connecting the battery with the starter motor. Other than that, during engine run up procedures you have to check the two magentos of the engine ignition system by using the key. There are planes out there which have starter pushbuttons but are very often interconnect by a key. Moving up to little business jets like the Cessna Citation, also have a key which opens the main door which unfolds stairs to enter the cabin, and some cargo compartments are also accessible with that key. But there is no ignition key to start up the engines. I know some executive jets have a key to start up the electrical system but only to make a little more tamper-proof. See more how airliners start their engines and lock their doors. Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe Big thank you to my dear pilot friend Genia (@flyingenii INSTAGRAM) for providing me with the video on how to open an executive jet.

Today I´ll be showing you what´s in my pilot bag. The things you definitely need and you can without. You have requested this video so many times, so it is my pleasure to help you out! Okay, when it comes to choosing your first pilot bag, pleae do yourself a favor and don´t by the cheap one. If you can afford a 800 Dollar mobile phone, you expect a certain reliability as you use it on a daily basis. So be smart and invest in a decent bag as you are going to be using it very often over a fairly long time. I know colleagues who had their bag for over 25 years, Rimowa or Samsonite was their choice and there are many other high quality suitcase manufactures out there. But if you decide to buy the cheap one, you might as well buy two, to use the other one for spare parts. Size does matter. Your flight bag shouldn´t be to big, and not to small. Make it dependent on the airplane you are flying. Boeing cockpits are less spacious than Airbus cockpits, so make sure that it fits next to your seat, cause you don´t want to place it behind you, as you are constantly getting stuff out of it. If you are planning on becoming a pilot in general aviation industry a carry on bag will do the job, but if your planning on becoming an airline pilot make sure you get a pull trolley. Cause you´ll be walking miles and miles through terminals and around airport aprons and you do not want to carry your bag, trust me. And whilst your at it, make sure it has a strap at the back so you can attach it to your layover suitcase. Let´s talk about the items to go in your bag. So this is all the gear you´ll be needing and let´s pack them in the order you´ll be using them. Have fun watching the video and buying your first pilot´s equipment!

Today we will cover some basic knowledge of the A320 hydraulic system, This is the least you should know prior starting you A320 Type rating. This is not a requirement but definitely nice to know and some of the topics can definitely be within the questionnaire in your airline assessment. The A320 Hydraulic system consists of three independent continuously operating systems and marked with the colors green, blue, and yellow. Each system has its own hydraulic fluid reservoir and accumulator but fluids can´t be transferred from one system to another. And the normal system operating pressure for each system is 3,000 psi, which is about 200 bars compared to your car tire pressure which is 2 to 3 bars. To provide this kind of pressure, each hydraulic system has it´s own pump. The Green and Yellow systems have their own engine driven pump plus the yellow system has an electrical driven back up pump. The blue system only has an electrically driven pump for normal operation and for emergency cases a second pump driven by a Ram Air Turbine, I´ll get back to that later. Overhead Panel: All pumps can be select ON or AUTO or intentionally OFF with the respective hydraulic push buttons on the overhead panel. So in the normal operating configuration, there are no lights illuminated on the HYD panel. ECAM: So if all system are operating normal the ECAM hydraulic page would look like this. At the bottom you have the Reservoir level and a fire shut off valve. A green in-line indicates the associated pushbutton switch for the pump is ON and hydraulic pressure is normal. Here you can see that the BLUE ELEC pump is ON and hydraulic pressure is normal. An amber LO indicates the pump is ON but hydraulic pressure is low. An amber cross-line would indicate the BLUE ELEC pump is OFF. And if there were to be a failure the ECAM HYD page will automatically be displayed with any Hydraulic system fault, or by pressing the HYD pushbutton switch on the ECAM control panel. Make sure to watch till the end as I´ll be going through some system failures.

TFC-Flight Training Centre: https://goo.gl/xAZEBp INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel, today´s video will be the first out of an upcoming Airbus system knowledge video series. Today we will cover some general A320 knowledge, you should know prior starting you A320 Type rating. This is not a requirement but definitely nice to know and some of the topics can definitely be within the questionnaire in your airline assessment. The Airbus A320 family consists of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliners manufactured by Airbus. The family includes the A318, A319, A320 and A321, as well as the ACJ business jet. The A320s are also named A320ceo (current engine option) after the introduction of the A320neo.[5] Final assembly of the family takes place in Toulouse, France, and Hamburg, Germany. A plant in Tianjin, China, has also been producing aircraft for Chinese airlines since 2009, while a final assembly facility in Mobile, Alabama, United States, delivered its first A321 in April 2016. The aircraft family can accommodate up to 220 passengers and has a range of 3,100 to 12,000 km (1,700 to 6,500 NM), depending on the model. The first member of the A320 family—the A320—was launched in March 1984, first flew on 22 February 1987, and was first delivered in March 1988 to launch customer Air France. The family was extended to include the A321 (first delivered 1994), the A319 (1996), and the A318 (2003). The A320 family pioneered the use of digital fly-by-wire flight control systems, as well as side-stick controls, in commercial aircraft. There has been a continuous improvement process since introduction. As of 31 May 2017, a total of 7,610 Airbus A320-family aircraft have been delivered, of which 7,279 are in service. In addition, another 5,501 airliners are on firm order. It ranked as the world's fastest-selling jet airliner family according to records from 2005 to 2007, and as the best-selling single-generation aircraft programme.[8] The A320 family has proved popular with airlines including low-cost carriers such as EasyJet, which purchased A319s and A320s to replace its 737 fleet. As of 31 May 2017, American Airlines was the largest operator of the Airbus A320 family aircraft, operating 390 aircraft. The aircraft family competes directly with the 737 and has competed with the 717, 757, and the MD-80/MD-90. In December 2010, Airbus announced a new generation of the A320 family, the A320neo (new engine option).The A320neo offers new, more efficient engines, combined with airframe improvements and the addition of winglets, named Sharklets by Airbus. The aircraft will deliver fuel savings of up to 15%. As of May 2017, a total of 5,053 A320neo family aircraft had been ordered by more than 70 airlines, making it the fastest ever selling commercial aircraft. The first A320neo was delivered to Lufthansa on 20 January 2016 and it entered service on 25 January 2016.

  17. INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK NEW FACEBOOK PAGE: https://goo.gl/heUKGb Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel. Today´s topic is the result out my recent video about "10 good reasons why to become a pilot". I got so many comments and complaints, that I should mention the negative aspects of being an airline pilot as well. So this is today´s video topic. 10 negative mentions on why being an airline pilot can have disadvantages. 10. Finding a job after flight school 9. Paying for flight school (Money) 8. Early wake up 7. No weekends 6. Fear of medical examination 5. Jetlag 4. Standby Duty 3. Away from home 2. Loss of seniority 1. Homebase and job security As I mention in the video, I don´t agree with all the mention points. In my opinion, I approach these matters with a positive attitude and deal with it as best as I can. If I would worry, complain and winge every single day about these points how miserable would I feel. I know those facts before I choose to become a pilot, and that is still the best choice I´ve made 10 years ago. Sure I get angry if I get called out of standby, but it´s how I approach these disadvantages of this job. Every job has advantages and disadvantages, you´re just gonna have to live with it. I hope you enjoy the video, a comment and a thumbs up are highly appreciated.

  18. INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel. Today´s topic is a question I got asked ever so often. How do airplanes steer around the apron? So in today´s video we´ll discuss how a little Cessna steers it´s nosewheel compared to a big airline jet. The nosewheel on a Cessna is mechanically connected to the rudder pedals which you use to move the rudder attached to the vertical stabiliser. But the nosewheel only moves by a few degrees, so if you wanted to perform a 90-degree turn to enter a taxiway, for example, you would apply brake pressure on either side of the main landing gear and use the propeller airstream to more or less pull yourself around the corner. The disadvantages obviously are tyre abrasion and a lot of stress on the nosewheel strut. So how do airlines do that? Using asymmetric thrust would do the job, but the torsion forces on the nosewheel strut would severely damage the construction. So again the nosewheel is linked to the rudder pedals like in our little Cessna. But another additional mechanism was installed, the so-called nose wheel steering which is powered hydraulically. You could compare that to your power steering in your car. To learn about it watch the entire video, as I`ll be going to more detail about the hydraulics involved moving the nosewheel. When the nosewheel steering disconnects, how to perform a flight control check and using the nosewheel steering disconnection button, how to use the steering pin by the pushback driver and how to maintain on the centerline of the taxiway. I hope you enjoy the video, a comment and a thumbs up are highly appreciated.

  20. INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers! Welcome back to my channel, and thanks for tuning in to watch this video where I show you ten good reasons why to become a pilot. I know this video will bring many comments, as many of you know that flight school is expensive etc. This video is more about showing you what your benefits are as a pilot and having a career in aviation. I want to do a video very soon on how to finance your flight school costs etc. Apart from that enjoy my top 10 reasons why the life as a pilot is so great. Sure I could make a video about the top 10 reasons not to become a pilot, and maybe I will. And maybe many pilots don´t agree with my attitude/opinion about the career as a pilot. But as many of you know me from my channel, I´m a very positive minded person, I deal with things as they present themselves, sure it can be harsh getting up at 3:30 am and get ready for your flight, but therefore I get to enjoy my breakfast with a fantastic sunrise and be done for the day at about 2:00 pm. Make the best out of your life, stop whingeing about how stressful life can be. Get your act together, cause nothing ever good came out of your comfort zone. Please leave a comment if agree with my list, but please spare me with comments about the cost of flight school, standby duty, and jet leg problems, I have to deal with them as everyone else has and had too. Big thank you to my Instagram and youtube colleague pilotpatric for sending me his picture of the executive jet. Go to Instagram and look for @pilotpatric or here on youtube @pilotpatrick and check out his great pictures and videos.

  21. INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel, today's topic is another classic passenger question. We're gonna talk about the static wicks you can see from your passenger window. As the airplane passes through clouds and due to the friction of the air the plane hull gets charged with electrons. The static electricity has the tendency to accumulate at sharp edges and peaky objects. Similar as if you would walk across a velour carpet, due to the friction of your shoes with the carpet the electrons get picked up and your body is statically charged with electricity. And we've all had the experience as you touch a metallic object or someone with a different static load and you get that little electric shock. The problem is that radio and navigation antennas on an airplane are fairly edgy and peaky meaning that the electrons would accumulate there and create a nasty static noise making communication barely understandable and the navigation can also be jeopardized by the magnetic field created by the static electricity. Therefore airplane manufacturers came up with an easy solution by installing little static wicks at the most prominent sharp edges like ailerons, flap track fairings, rudders and elevators, so that the electrons have an easier way of discharging from the plane without disturbing the radio and navigation antennas. But see more in the video. Big thank you to @schipolhotspot for providing me with the A380 video, climbing into the clouds.

  22. The most exciting flight experience I´ve had in a long time. New York City at it´s best, by FLYNYON www.flynyon.com Or click here https://goo.gl/ognwez Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel and lovely greetings from Jersey City in New Jersey. Today´s video will be the beginning of a new video series called "25 THINGS A PILOT HAS TO DO". One of the things on my list is to fly around New York in a helicopter. FLYNYON was so kind to invite me to their helipad in Jersey City to take me on a 30-minute flight around New York City and Manhatten. After getting my safety gear on, pilot Christi did a thorough check that all my camera gear was securely fastened to my harness and we were ready to head to the helicopter. A beautiful Eurocopter was waiting on it´s platform. Christi did all her preflight checks, warmed up the turbine and seconds later we were airborne, flying inbound to New York City. First stop, Statue of Liberty. I´ve seen her in so many movies and getting that close was breathtaking. Christi was dealing with ATC clearances as we entered the city and still had some time to mention the sightseeing spots we were flying by, impressive multitasking :) Next stop, Battery Park, "Okay you guys, this is the money shot, get out your cameras". As we hovered at about 1000 feet above the Hudson River we all had the chance to take beautiful pictures of Manhattan Downtown. Then we headed northbound up the East River, performing a low pass over Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. Then we turned Northwest bound giving us an amazing view over Central Park. Gently hovering down to the famous "Flat Iron" building and over to the Empire State Building, literally seeing people waving at us. Then a nice steep turn back to Hudson River, standing by for a clearance to get closer to the Freedom Tower. "You´re in luck you guys, I was able to get a 360 around the Freedom Tower, so hold on". We got an amazing view of the 911 memorial pools, the new Oculus building and the Freedom Tower. After the 360 around Manhattan, we headed back to Jersey City in a gradual descent towards the landing pad. After a smooth touch down my first helicopter flight was over and I was completely blown away by it. FLYNYON for sure knows how to treat their passengers, making sure you get the most out of your flight time. Make sure to watch the entire video, cause at the end I had a little chat with pilot Christi about her career as a helicopter pilot. That for sure was a awesome flight experience, and now I´m looking forward to completing more things on my "25 THINGS A PILOT HAS TO DO" checklist. The list will be online on my website within the next few days at www.flywithcaptainjoe.com Check out FLYNYON´s website at: https://www.flynyon.com cause they also offer photo flights in Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. I hope you enjoyed this video. Make sure to swing by my instagram account and website for more details.

  23. Is the runway heading magnetic or true? How are four parallel runways identified? All your answer are here! INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel, today´s question is: What is the meaning behind the numbers and letters on the runway? I´m sure many of you have seen my approach and landing videos here on youtube, and you might have wondered, what is that number and letter you see on the runway just prior touchdown. Let´s first talk about the number. We´re gonna have to cover some basic navigation first. As we look at our planet earth we have the geometric north and south pole in each hemisphere, marking the top and bottom of the planet. But there´s no instrument besides GPS which could guide us towards these poles. But the planet has it´s own magnetic field surrounding the earth, creating the magnetic north and south pole which are slightly off of the geometric poles. Now you´ve all seen a compass, and you know that the needle always points towards magnetic north. Now let´s look at this runway here, you can see the numbers 08, let´s imagine you would draw a line all the way from the magnetic north pole down until it crosses the runway centerline. You would see that the two lines create an opening angle of 080 degrees. Meaning the runway centerline is 080 degrees relative to the magnetic north pole. So why is there only a 08 on the runway? There are two reasons for that. Let´s say the magnetic heading of the runway would be 084. Then it would be rounded off to the nearest tenth, so in this case, 080, leaving out the last zero, you have runway "Zero eight". But if you would name the runway "zero eight zero" could lead to misinterpretation as given headings are spelled the same way, like fly heading 120 for example. Now as you sit in your plan on the runway, in this example runway 05 in Madeira you know you know your plane nose is pointing 050 degrees, so heading northeast, and your airplane tail is pointing + 180 degrees into the opposite direction, so the reciprocal runway should be? Yes, runway "two tree". But more about that in the video :) Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe Big thank you to the other youtuber who provided me with their great videos.

INSTAGRAM FLYWITHCAPTAINJOE: https://goo.gl/TToDlg MY WEBSITE: https://goo.gl/KGTSWK Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel, today´s question is another very important one, especially if you are wanting to become an airline pilot, you´ll be dealing with this topic a lot. What is a cost index and how does it influence the planes´ performance. I´ll go over some basic details on what defines the cost index, like flight operational costs, what they are made of and how they have an impact on daily flight operations. Another very big part of the cost index calculation is the current fuel price. As fuel is the denominator in the division, it has the bigger impact on changing the value of the cost index. So I´ll show you an example on how to perform such a cost index calculation. You can say, the cheaper the fuel the higher the cost index, the faster the plane will fly, the shorter the flight time. The more expensive the fuel, the smaller the cost index becomes and the slower the aircraft will fly to become more economically efficient. Next then will be to look at on how the cost index affects the planes´ flight profile. KEY NOTE: LOWEST COST INDEX and the aircraft will fly at maximum range cruise but relatively slow. HIGHEST COST INDEX and the aircraft will fly at maximum cruising speed giving you the shortest flight time at the highest fuel burn. The cost index value ranges from 0 - 999 and has to be typed in the FMS ( Flight management system ) via the MCDU ( Multi Control Display Unit ) on the Airbus. I hope I was able to explain this topic as simple as possible, cause this for sure is a difficult topic.

  25. Dear friends and followers, today´s video will show you how to fly a circling approach towards runway 36 at Calvi/Corsica airport. This is one of my favourite airports to fly to within Europe. It´s exciting to fly the circling approach, cause there are a lot of things you need to concentrate on at the same time. Initially, you fly the localizer approach towards Runway 18, once reaching a specified distance from the runway you then turn on heading 190 until you´re abeam of the threshold, the regain heading 180, fly that for 20 seconds, as seen in the video, you are then in the downwind of the runway, once reaching 20 seconds you star your 180 turn with a constant descent rate until reaching final runway heading and proceed towards the threshold. It sounds easier then it is. And be aware this is a CAPTAIN LANDING ONLY, meaning I was just assisting/pilot monitoring. My captain had to have special training in the simulator to perform this procedure here at Calvi. Why can you hear the TERRAIN AHEAD warning sound? You can hear the GPWS (Ground proximity warning system) kick it prior our turn. The GPWS doesn´t anticipate the turn, and has the impression that we are flying towards the mountain, therefore it warns you about the approaching terrain. More about the GPWS in a future video.
