      Another Blonde oke
      By Sonny · Posted
      A business man got on an elevator.when he entered,there was a blonde already inside who greeted him with a bright ,"t-g-i-f"

      He smiled at her and replied,"s-h-i-t"

      She looked puzzled,and repeated,"t-g-i-f".

      More slowly he answered,"s-h-i-t"

      The blonde was trying to keep it friendly,so,she smiled her biggest smile and said as sweetly as possibly,"t-g-i-f"

      The man smiled back to her and once again"s-h-i-t".

      The exasperated blonde decided to explain what "t-g-i-f"means "thank goodness it`s friday",get it duuhhh?

      The man answered"s-h-i-t" means "sorry honey it`s thursday."

      I'm with lquest - out of rig prop can do some wierd stuff, but if within limits ignore and continue.  Can you give actual numbers, ie. OAT, air pressure, ff, torque, TIT,  RPM?

      Is the engine operating within limits? If so, disregard the differences as there is no limit for symmetrical operation in HSGI. Otherwise, you might consider checking rigging with the valve housing, or swap it with a known good valve housing, as long as the Fuel Control has already been eliminated. I know the prop causing fuel flow problems sounds weird, but I've had it cause stranger problems in HSGI.

      Flight Tablets Approved Throughout AMC
      By Metalbasher · Posted
      From today's AFA Daily Report, 23 Feb 2017 Flight Tablets Approved Throughout AMC Air Mobility Command has approved the use of tablet computers in place of paper flight manuals at all AMC wings, according to a press release. AMC began the electronic flight bag initiative in 2010 as a cost-saving measure, and they estimate that replacing 120 pounds of paper with a tablet saves almost $3.8 million per year across the command. The savings come in reduced fuel consumption and paper printing and distribution costs. AMC has also taken security precautions with the new system. “Working with the Defense Information Systems Agency’s security technical implementation guide, we know how to configure the tablet for government use, and how to configure each tablet to ensure it has the most secure cyber posture,” said Richard Quidgeon, requirements manager for the program.

      Somebody's got’ta do it

      I loved the early morning Milk and Bread run. Think we loaded up in Ben Hoa. I would requisition a couple of cases of milk and put way back in the tail. It would cool down pretty good back there. When we hit forward fire bases I would toss the Aerial Port guys fresh milk... They loved it. I didn't spend much time at CRB. My last 12 missions in Country was leaflet drops up close to Laos out of CRB. I don't think my crew scheduler liked me very much. My Nav was a guy we called Woodstock. He would give me his flight jacket with his Lt bars and get me in the Officers Club at CRB. You guys had better Chow and Beer...Heck, we did all the work. All you had to do was drive the bus...

      software card on the j model
      By [email protected] · Posted
      this is a hypothetical question. If I the software PCMCIA card is accidentally formatted as a a flight RMM, what is the possibility of  recovery? Do I have to order a new one from the Factory? Is it possible to back up the card in to a PC?

      Hello. In LSGI after engine start, tit, fuel flow, torque, rpm are the same for all engines However, when switching to hsgi, engine no.1 is higher than tit 100 degrees and ff is higher than 200 ppm(Torque and rpm are the same as other engines) And after 2 ~ 5 minutes, ff and tit decrease similar to other engines Symptoms appear only at first start-up and do not appear during second or subsequent operation(The morning outside temperature is about 0 to 5 degrees) I exchanged MFC and TD VALVE I checked TD Amp Test   How are your opinions?
