  3. Of the seven massive Martin Mars flying boats built in 1942-43 as cargo and troop transports for the U.S. Navy, just one, the Hawaii Mars, still flies regularly and it's coming to Oshkosh. Take a quick look at what it's like to fly this impressive machine in its current role as an aerial firefighter.SOURCE:
  4. EAA’s rebuilt prototype of the classic Aerocar represents a revolutionary concept. Not only can it be readily converted from an airplane to a roadable car, but also its wings can be folded back along the sides of the detached fuselage and towed behind the automobile like a trailer. Thus, it is not necessary to leave its wings, tail and propeller at an airport for it to be driven on the highway, and one does not have to return to the same airport in order to fly again.SOURCE:

We were recently “awarded” the northeast territory, so we now cover everything from Maine to Florida and as far west as Mississippi. We have a salesman based at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in New York who covers the northeast states for us, and a salesman in south Florida covering the entire state of Florida. www.swtaviation.com CubCrafters builds an airplane every 4 1/2 business days, so we sell about 60 airplanes a year. If you ordered a factory built airplane today, we would schedule the delivery for about 8-10 weeks. When ordering one of our EX-2 Kits, the crate will be delivered to you within 3-4 weeks, and you can begin building your dream airplane. We also have a very unique Builder Assist program where you can go out to the factory in Yakima, WA, and spend 5 days building the parts to your airplane. Those parts will have your name on them, and they will go down the factory assembly line just like every other airplane on the line, but when it’s all said and done, your name will be on the data plate because you will have completed 51% of the build. You can certify this airplane to an 1,865 lbs. gross weight (Not an LSA) and have more useful load than the traditional Carbon Cub (1,320 lbs. gross weight; but you can fly it without a medical). This airplane is called the Carbon Cub FX. _____ Sponsor / Supporter Links: Bose Aviation http://www.bose.com/a20 iCloth Avionics: http://www.iclothavionics.com/flight-chops.html Scheyden Precision Eyewear http://www.scheyden.com CloudAhoy http://www.cloudahoy.com The Finer Points of Flying - Jason Miller: http://adventure.learnthefinerpoints.com Spectrum Airways Flight Training: http://www.spectrumairways.com/ And thanks to PIVOT case!

  7. It was a last idea that was conceved late in the season. "How far could we jump a RZR Turbo with sand paddle tires?" Well, the slushy snow prevented Al from getting the speed he needed, but even knowing he wasn't going fast enough, he went for it anyways. The jump had an 80' gap, and the plan was to go 150'. The front wheels of the RZR smashed through the end of the ramp. That's why Al was surprised the front end held together on his Polaris Turbo. We didn't get nearly the distance we had hoped for, and the warm, slushy conditions didn't give us the look we wanted with the dirty snow, but we learned a lot. Next winter, we're gonna smash records. Big thanks to Al Mcbeth for stepping up, and going for it, even when he was certain he was going to crash. He dug 2' holes through the end of the landing ramp. https://www.instagram.com/conceptdistributing/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/al_mcbeth_357/?hl=en Sugarshot Productions, Jeremy Diechen and Treven Lepage for coming out to help film, Monstercat for the song and HouseHippo Media for the edit. https://www.instagram.com/sugarsharkproductions/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/loadedguninc/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/househippomedia/?hl=en Song: Surface by Monstercat Artist: Aero Chord https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrCKvKXvN2c https://www.instagram.com/monstercat/?hl=enSOURCE:

  13. Dear followers and aviation enthusiats. In this video I´ll be answering a great question which was sent in by one of my Instagram followers named KayDoc:"Dear Capitan Joe, do airplanes have windscreen wipers such as cars have them?" Fantastic question! Okay let´s imagine you´re sitting in your car, and as you get onto the motorway it starts pouring with rain. One little move with your finger and you´re windscreen wipers comes on, and you have a clear sight onto the road again. But how about airplanes, how do they get rid of the rain ? On ground: Put yourself into your passenger seat and imagine that we are slowly taxing towards the runway and it´s raining heavily. A passenger jet taxi´s (straight) with a speed at about 20 - 35 mph ( 30-60km/h ), which isn´t fast enough for the airstream to clear the windshields from raindrops. The visibility reduces dramatically which can be dangerous on airport aprons. So with one little hand movement, like in your car, every pilot can switch on his windscreen wiper. There is one wiper on each side which can be turned on separately and has two speed settings, slow and fast. During a rainy take-off roll we keep the wipers switched on, cause as you gain speed a lot of the water from the nose cone runs over the windshields and the visibility is reduced even more, so you have the option to increase the wiper speed . Similar as you go along the motorway at 60mph, you may use wiper speed „1“, but if you accelerate to 100mph, at the same amount of rain, you´re gonna have to adjust your wiper speed. Okay let´s imagine we´re in flight. During enroute cruise the wipers are inoperative. They are aerodynamically and mechanically limited to the speed of the aircraft so that the switches are inhibited. The limit varys between aircraft manufactures. The limiting speed for example on an Airbus A320 is 230kts (260mph/). On final approch ( approx 20 miles from the runway ) you fly at speeds of 260 mph, which is fast enough to clear the windshields from rain. But three miles prior to landing you will have reduced the speed down to 140kts and in heavy rain the wipers are absolutely essential to get clearly visibility onto the runway. In the event that one wiper is inoperative, may only the pilot with the functional wiper fly the aircraft. In the event that both wipers are inoperative, which is very unlikely, the aircraft is limited such as it may only take-off and land in visual metrological conditions and it´s capability to land within certain approach minimas (height and visibility) is reduced and limited. Single engine airplanes don´t necessarily need wipers cause the propeller airstream is strong enough to clear the windshield of precipitation and most of them are only certified to fly in visual metrological conditions anyways. So the next time you´re sitting in an aeroplane and it´s pouring with rain , imagine the pilots doing this move:) I hope this short video gave you glance into the handling with windscreen wipers on airplanes! I hope you enjoyed this video. Make sure to subscribe my channel so you don´t miss future videos like these. All the best, your captain Joe Info: Many aircraft manufactors also installed a switch or a button which allows you to spray "rain repellant" onto the windscreen in heavy rain, smiliar to your wiper washer. Unfortunately this liquid was banned in many countries due to it´s highly chemical substances so that on most airplanes this switch is set inoperative. If you have a video of how to use the rain repellant, I would be very happy to see it.SOURCE

  16. Back in the early days of aviation radio communication wasn´t as clear as it is today. Antennas picked up all sorts of static noises which made it difficult to understand the transmitter at the receiving end. So in the 1950´s, the ICAO (The International Civil Aviation Organization) developed a so called „spelling alphabet“ or „phonetic alphabet“. The whole idea of developing this alphabet was to reduce misunderstandings whilst communicating via radio and to standardize one spelling alphabet for the entire aviation industry at the time. The final choice of code words for the letters of the alphabet was made after hundreds of thousands of comprehension tests involving many different nationalities to agree on 26 codewords for the 26 letters in the alphabet which are the most least similar to each other when being pronounced. I´ll give you an example. When you transmit a message containing letters and numbers, you use the spelling alphabet to avoid confusions, because many letters sound very similar, for example the letter „M“ and „N“ or „B“ and „D“. If you would have to read back this clearance, „proceed to beacon MIQ“ you could mistake M for the letter N, so therefore the air traffic controller will say, „proceed to beacon Mike-India-Quebec“ to minimize the chance of misunderstanding. Similar solution with numbers. For example, the air traffic controllers very often give you clearances like: „Speedbird-125-Hotel climb flight level two five zero, free speed“ you could mix up the „free“ with the english number three, so therefore the three is pronounced as „tree“ like the english word for tree. The same goes for the number „nine“, nine sounds like the german word „nein“, which means „no“, therefore you pronounce the number nine as „niner“. Also important, numbers are always pronounced separately, for example, „climb flight level „tree-niner-zero“" instead of „climb flight level three hundred and ninety“. Of course exceptions prove the rule, for example Flight level 100/200/300 are pronounced Flight level 100/200/300 and airline callsigns can be „EasyJet one-hundred Xray“ or „Lufthansa Triple-six two“. I hope I was able to answer this aviation related question for you, and I´ve uploaded another video where you can practice the spelling alphabet with pictures relating to the coded letter.

  18. www.flywithcaptainjoe.com Instagram: flywithcaptainjoe E-Mail: flywithcaptainjoe@gmail.com Let´s imagine we´re flying from Frankfurt to Gatwick. So prior to our flight, me and my captain meet up in the briefing area where we gather all important information for the flight to England. Information about any possible changes at the departure and destination airport, maybe a taxiway is closed, maybe an Instrument Landing System is out of service or enroute navigation aids may give false information, and of course we check for the weather. Once in the aircraft we have to perform take-off calculations to get the necessary take-off speeds and power settings. But therefore we need reliable and accurate weather information. So at one point we´re going to consult the so called ATIS. Which stands for Automatic Terminal Information Service. The ATIS is a continuous broadcast of recorded aeronautical information of the airfield. On all airport ground and approach charts you´ll find the necessary ATIS frequency. Yes the ATIS is transmitted via radio. So you tune in the appropriate frequency and then you will hear this:SOURCE
  19. More info: www.flywithcaptainjoe.com Instagram: flywithcaptainjoe Today´s question is another favorite of mine. What is reverse thrust and when do you use it? Okay, I´ll break it down for you to the absolute basics. Reverse thrust is used to slow down the aircraft on the runway after touchdown. There are three main components which slow down the airplane on the runway: Primary Braking with disc or carbon brakes similar to your car Secondary with reverse thrust Thrid with aerodynamical braking with the ground spoilers So we have two words in reverse thrust. “Reverse” cause the turbines output is being guided into the reverse direction and as you might not know we apply "thrust" in order to increase the braking action. So let´s look at this video to see what happens at touch-down. Here you can see engine number one of a Airbus A320. At touch-down these flaps open up, so called “reverser doors”. They act as guiding vanes in the mid section of the bypass-channel of the turbine and force the accelerated air of the fan to blow into the opposite direction. Now these reverser doors don´t open automatically at touch-down, no you lift up these little levers which will activate the hydraulic system to apply pressure to the actuator which then opens the reverser doors. Keeping the levers in this position only give you “Idle reverse”, but as soon as you move the levers to the aft position, the engine will spool up creating more thrust increasing the reverse output. The engines will increase thrust up to 70% which then resembles in “Full reverse thrust”. I know it´s odd to think that you would apply thrust again just after touch-down. You can definitely hear the difference between “Idle” and “full reverse thrust”, trust me :) Using the reversers significantly decrease the landing distance, varying between aircraft, weight and environmental factors. If you look at this great video of here, showing a Boeing 747 touching down and applying full reverse thrust you can clearly see how the water on the runway gets blown forwards. I actually experienced that myself landing on a snow covered runway, we applied full reverse thrust and you could literally see the snow blowing infront of the aircraft. So when do you use reverse thrust? Using “idle reverse” at touch-down is mandatory by many aircraft manufactures and airlines. First and far most to immediately decrease the aircrafts speed and to stabilize the aircrafts roll out plus to reduce brake usage. Landing on wet or snow contaminated runways using reverse thrust is absolutely vital to decelerate the aircraft and preventing it from skidding and keeping it in a straight line. Full reverse thrust is not permitted at some airports due to noise abendement procedures or at least restricted in between hours from here to then. Nevertheless pilots can use full reverse thrust when deemed necessary, but might have to state their decision in a report. Airplanes with wing mounted engines may only use full reverse thrust until slowing down to a specified speed, cause using the reverser below that speed could blow up loose gravel on the runway which could get sucked into the engine and damage the turbine. For example in an Airbus A320 you would have to reduce "full reverse thrust to idle reverse" at 70 knots, and retract the reverser at speeds below 40 knots. There are many different reverser types out there, but all work after the basic principle by forcing the air or even the exhaust into the opposite direction. So I hope I´ve answered another aviation related question for you. If you have a question that´s been on your mind, don´t hesitate to write me, therefore subscribe my channel, check out my website and spread the word! Farewell your Captain Joe Info: Fairly often you see executive jets using reverse thrust during taxi, to reduce break usage whilst rolling down sloping taxiways. Cause of their high mounted engines pilots don´t need to worry damaging the turbine due to gravel on the asphalt. And the well know MD80 with her rear mounted engines use to have a power back procedure, where they used reverse thrust to back out of a gate position. I´m not 100% if that procedure is still around? Maybe you know? To me that looks very dangerous.SOURCE

  21. Tomato juice! Todays question is a classic passenger question :) Sent in by youtube Follower "Sandra S.“: "Joe, why is Tomato juice so popular on airplanes?" That is a great question and I had do some weird research to find an adequte answer. Unfortunately there is not just one answer when it comes to tomato juice on board an airplane. A survey has found out that many passengers order the aromatic red drink because they say it calms their stomace during the flight, cause many passengers get nauseous as soon as the enter the plane. Another source said that it´s just a "thing" like popcorn at the cinema. The cinema is mostly probably the only place where popcorn seems to be the "thing" to eat during a movie and you don´t need cutlery for it. So comes the airplane with tomato juice. Another said that a lot of passengers drink the red vegatable drink cause many airlines don´t serve meals anymore, so they drink the juice instead cause it tastes like cold tomato soup and satisfys like an entire meal. But the statement that really caught my attention, is the reduction in salt tastyness up in the air. Scientist have found out that with increasing cabin altitude your taste sense, especially the on responsible for salt, decrease dramatically. They´ve tested on volenteers who drank tomate juice on ground, and then put them into a pressure chamber to simulate flight conditions, and again let them drink tomato juice, and nearly every test person was claiming that the juice tasted poor in flavour, but adding a teaspoon of salt, made the juice taste as if they were on ground. Similar with all the hot meals on board a plane, cooks use up to 30% more salt when preparing the meal due to the loss in salt taste with increasing cabin altitude. This is my personal explantion and answer to this question, but it still remains a myth if you ask me. Why was it tomato juice in the first place, not carotte juice or any other vegatable drink. One thing for sure, it´s definitely healthier to than a glass of coke. So I hope I´ve answered another aviation-related quesiton for you, this was definitely a fun one to answer, so if you want to see more videos like this, subscribe my channel, give me thumbs up and spread the word. Thanks for watching Your captain JoeSOURCE
  22. What is the difference between "taxi" and "line up"? Dear friends and followers today I´ll be answering another question which was sent in by one of my youtube follower .... "Joe what is the difference between Taxi and Line up?" Great question! They are two separate things, that´s for sure. So let´s imagine you´ve just fastened your seat belts and you can feel the aircraft being pushed back out of it´s gate position. The eninge spoul up and a few minutes later the aircraft starts to move under it´s own power. The pilots standby for the clear signal by the pushback driver and then request a taxi clearance with ground or apron controller, which will sound similar to this."......" After receiving the taxi clearance the pilots turn on the taxi and runway turnoff lights, release the parking brake and taxi along their assigned route. Very often you can feel the aircraft slowing down just after it started moving, that indicates a brake check, then you might see the ailerons going up and down, that is the flight control check. On smaller Turboprop jets you sometimes see that only one propeller is spinning, so the pilots are using the single engine taxi procedure. But all these procedures can vary from airline to airline. Also entering the deicing pad and getting deiced is within the taxi phase. Sometimes you have to give way for incoming or outgoing traffic, or stop at an active runway which you have to cross in order to get to your holding point. At big airports like Madrid or Los Angeles you might have to change the ground frequency up to four times and taxi times can vary between three minutes and 1 hour or even longer. To steer the aircraft you either use the tiller or the pedals once the speed is high enough, and the maximum taxi speed is 30 knots, approximately 60km/h and going around a turn should be performed at speeds not higher then 10 knots to prevent the nosewheel from colapse. So once you´ve reached your holding point at your assigned runway, the ground controller will advise you, once your leaving his perimeter, to switch over to tower control. The tower controller is in charge of overlooking the approach and departure sector and to give line up, take-off and landing clearances. The taxi phase ends once the tower controller has cleared you onto to the active runway. Before lining up, the tower controller will mostly likely ask you if you are "ready for the departure". Once you´ve completed the "Before Take-Off Checklist" you will respond, "AirJoe123, ready for departure","AirJoe123 line up runway 26Right". Once lined up, he will say,"AirJoe123, cleared for take-off runway 26right". So the line up starts once you´ve passed the holing point and ends once your airplane fuselage is in line with the runway centerline. You should be fully ready for departure cause if there is inbound traffic you do not want to line up on the runway if you´re not fully ready, possibly causing the inbound traffic to perform a go-around. No you do not want that to happen, trust me! Line ups can also be performed via runway intersections, and even if there is a airplane waiting at the beginning of the runway. There are special line up procedures, in Düsseldorf/Germany for example, a Airbus A330 or Boeing 777 will line up in the opposite direction, perform a 180 degree turn to use the full available runway lenth in case of a heavy take-off weight. Special line up guide lines will help the pilot to perform this procedure. Also there are special line up clearances, for example if you have inbound traffic on short final, like in this video, the tower controller will say "AirJoe123, BEHIND next landing Airbus A321, line up runway 26Right BEHIND". When reading back your clearance, the controller will take extra care that you mention the word "BEHIND" twice. So those are the main differences of taxi and line up. Taxi is getting to the runway and line up is entering the runway and being ready for take-off. I hope I´ve answered another aviation related question for you, give me a thumbs up if you enjoyed this video and subscribe my channel if you want to learn more about the world of aviation. All the best, farewell your Captain JoeSOURCE
