    Wow that is a short flight for your aircraft. Presumably it would have to be pretty full of pax to be economically viable over such a short distance?

    What sort of V speeds to you see when near max AUW?

    I’m sure it’s real. Putting it in something like a single turboprop is the perfect aircraft for it too.
    The next gen PC-12 that has just been announced has some pretty impressive tech (auto-throttle etc) that a system similar to this would work well in.

    The capability to get it on the ground in an emergency is one thing, it’s another altogether to convince 300 people to strap themselves in to something with no-one up front!
    Gary and I should be ok for a while yet... :)

    Looks as though they were a little slack in some of their logistics though.
