Re: Are We Ready for a Two-front War ?

I had done my scenarios with the Terrain option and could see road connectivity. Because of the terrain, the roads are via hilly ranges, that only increases the distance from point A to point B, but somehow I did not see why it is not possible. Maybe I missed something. I will rework on Google Maps...

this is basically what provides lift. If you invert the wing, the aircraft will have a low pressure zone downwards, which will basically pull the a/c downwards. An aircraft is able to fly upside down for extended periods mainly due to the inertia of the aircraft body, however if it does so for an e...

So if I understand this correctly, the Airbus FCS does not allow pilots to override its stupid decisions, but it does not prevent them from shaking pieces off the airplane in a non-life-threatening, routine low-speed situation. Airbus FCS equips only aircraft after A320. The A300 that crashed does ...

Re: Indian Military Aviation

Indian flight hours are similar to NATO's. Assuming an average of 200 hours per year, it is 2000 hours in 10 years, and 4000 in 20 years. As you go higher up the ranks especially wing commander and above, the amount of flying too reduces. So 3000-4000 hours by the time they occupy staff positions i...
