  • Pressurization Failure

    Yes, if you are looking. The cabin altimeter on the copilots instrument panel and the Pressure controllers differential pressure gauge.   I think the true answer you are looking for is: No, there is no warning system for a high cabin altitude. Nothing that is originally installed equipment but there have been a few after market systems used.

    Pressurization Failure

    Is there any indication in the flight deck for pressurization failure in C-130H or C-130E aircraft?

    VA Compensation

    Just an update, I have had a couple of hearing tests and was found to have a lot of high frequency hearing loss. I was approved for hearing aids and have gone for the ear fitting appointment. I will get them in about six weeks. I am having trouble distinguishing speech sounds from TV and people I am talking with. It all seems to run together sometimes. Just as a side note, the VA only wants the very best hearing aids. These are quite costly if I had to pay for them myself. Hope this helps o

      ADULT TRUTHS:   #22 is one of my favorites!!   1. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.   2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.   3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.   4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

      A teacher notices that a little boy (aka Little Johnny) at the back of the class is squirming around, scratching his crotch and not paying attention. She goes back to find out what's up. He's quite embarrassed and whispers that he has just recently been circumcised and he's quite itchy. The teacher tells him to go down to the principal's office, to phone his mom, and ask her what he should do about it. He does this and returns to the class, sits down in his seat and suddenly, there's a general c
