IFATC At Home - San Diego

@Thunderbolt I may fly to KSAN on Sunday to say hi. General question, is it in violation of IFATC rules to not use thrust reversers upon landing?

No. You’re the pilot, you’re flying the plane, we’re the controllers, we control. It’s up to you if you use reverse thrust or not.

Ah, ok. Because I’ve been trying to land a plane using only full flaps, spoilers set to armed, and keeping the nose gear elevated for as long as possible.

Just keep in mind that the runway at KSAN is a bit short.

Actually, it’s pretty short…

Schedule Announcement:

Here are my current plans!


Break for East Coast Madness!



Hmm ok I’ll see if I can make it. It’s gonna be late night and early morning for me, but we’ll see

Home field advantage for me 🥵 see u there and thx for opening up this gem

Never knew, interesting! Do you recall when this was?

Very well made post as well!

I believe it ended in either 2003 or 2005, then replaced by a 777 to Gatwick, and then replaced in 2010 or 2011 to the 747 we see today.

I definitely will be there.

I’ll maybe do KIAH to KSAN! I think that’s a route, correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes, both Spirit and United!
