    Hi G force,

    Nice Job....I also have had the pleasure in working im the North sea....im still a hydrographic Surveyor who's job includes positioning of vessels an sub sea structures for oil extraction worldwide (avoiding Nigera)

    so quick question for you.... i had a hairy experience taking off from Angola in a 474 (TAG airways)...it seemed like the Flaps hadnt been extended prior to take off.
    Well i think they were extended albeit not fully, so my Q is? can all planes take off with the flaps not extended?

    I know its straying from the post's thread but thats what this forums
    for....!

    Tar Ves...

    Simple answer...

    Yes, but the airspeed required for lift is greater.

    The flaps on a wing are there to change its shape in order to accentuate the effect of Bernoulli's principle by introducing a more pronounced 'curve' to the wing. They are retracted to reduce drag when the airspeed is great enough for the 'clean' wing to achieve lift. Flap configuration at take-off is variable dependant upon things like take-off weight, weather, and of course the length of the tarmac - oh, and your fuel efficiency strategy. I'd say it's very rare to take-off with fully extended flaps; most (civil) aircraft I know anything about use varying extensions around the 15 degrees mark at take-off depending upon the factors previously described.

    That's probably a reasonable attempt at a simple explanation, but I'm sure G Force can fill you in on the professional's answer to it.

    I'll propogate a question for G Force though... What do you fly fella? And did you train somewhere like CABAIR or did you go through smaller operations, or even go abroad to qualify?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    PS> I'm so jealous of you it's not funny; if you ever fancy having a day on terra-firma doing computer stuff give me a shout, I'm sure we could swap!

    It depends on your experience of Cisco equipment and networking.....

    However, if you just want the paper certification, there are very quick ways to do this. If you have no hands-on Cisco but a grasp of networking fundamentals, I reckon the CCNA can be done by self-study in a couple of weeks. Skim the CCNA textbook (Sybex or Cisco), do the Boson routersims and above all read the Testking PDFs before sitting the exam. The testkings are priceless - you'll see many of the exam questions there. The routersims are important too as you'll get 2 or 3 of these in the exam and these sims are heavily weighted.

    Loads of places will charge thousands so you can have someone talk you through the textbook in a piss-boring classroom for a week......... a bit of disciplined self-study is all it needs!!

    Thread highjacked again.......

    I couldn't have answered that question better myself, without dusting off the old "Principles of Flight" books from ground school!!! Nowadays I just do what the computer tells me!!!

    As for your other questions, I fly the Airbus A319 on domestic and short haul European routes and yes I was an integrated student at Cabair.
