    Airline Go-Around on Visual... Automatic 1500' Pattern Altitude?

    Hey everyone thanks so much for the replies and it absolutely answers some questions. I'm in the school house at DL and we just got this 1500' thing not to long ago. Our fleet wasn't crazy about it because we have a little gotchya that could bite a crew not on their A-game because of a low...

    Airline Go-Around on Visual... Automatic 1500' Pattern Altitude?

    I'm a pilot at one of the majors and I have a question. New guidance on visual approaches they handed us says level off at 1500' on a missed approach until ATC says otherwise per 7110.65W 7-4-1a. Basically, per 7-4-1a: "aircraft executing a go−around may be instructed to enterthe traffic...

    I have a quick question for an atc expert. :D I'm an instructor at DAL now and have a couple of RNP phraseology questions. If you look at the MDW RNAV Y 13C, if an aircraft came in over PLOPP and was descending out of 4000 and you had to send them missed would you A) vector them away or B)...

    hey Robertb, I talked to a Bus instructor and you may be more right than even I knew. He said that when it came to slowing at the marker it was beaten into the NWA pilots (320 vs 753 as you noted) via their standardized procedures that you slow and configure immediately. They were far more...

    With the 717 lackluster climb out of Atlanta, I guess one idea would be making fixes like Zelan "at or above 8000 at 250" type of fix. A crew with a heavy 717 would need regular CLB power and would adjust accordingly on a flight by flight basis. We did however find a flaw with the 717...

    Question for you ATL guys. If I cross BAMBU for instance on a visual to 26R at 3500' and not 4000', that's okay right? That's what me and my Captain couldn't agree on. I was perpendicular to BAMBU and intercepting inside of it or just right near it and he wanted me to stay at 4000' because...

    Like I said, I'll do it. I can't do like we did in E120s out in IAH and fly a dot high because these things don't take to being high and remaining in the touchdown zone. If there's a crosswind then hopefully the wake is blown off to the side of the runway. The worst actually is when someone...

    We kind of figured you guys were probably irritated on the 717 but the deal is it's doing a derated climb. So yeah we (or they, just left 717) never can hit any ZELAN type fix prior to 10,000. It just climbs slow. Now if you forget the derate climb during your preflight FMS set up, it's a lot...

    Fwiw we at Delta are getting a new turbulence program on our Microsoft surface pros that we use in the cockpit. We are actually getting the surface pro 3 soon which has GPS and a moving map. That'll be nice. But we are not allowed to use the airplanes wifi with those things and supposedly they...

    So why would a pilot do that? And not having any concept of the ATC system. Some guys never had good training on that because in their previous world the world did revolve around them. And some are just old school and learned from guys that were really old school on the 727. If an FO wants...

    Honestly. Despite slowing very poorly from 250 knots to 220 knots where I can put my first notch of flaps in the Bus does a really good job once you're already at 180 knots on slowing to approach. We probably could wait a little longer to configure and keep the speed up but most don't seem to do...

    Aw man. There are so many different personalities and so set in their ways. No policy to ask. Some people are anxious flyers. Probably the same guys who ask for vectors around a simple puffy cloud at 6000 feet on a congested arrival. Some just have gotten the brunt of old FAs barking at them...

    So I post usually over on the airlinepilotforums.com as forgot to bid. I'm an ATL 320 guy. Rarely have I ever had an issue with ATC but it's rather common to have a disagreement in the cockpit between each other about something related to ATC. So I had one such incident yesterday and I did a...
