Airports do rock, I want to see If I might be able to get a jjob at my local FBO, I know a guy from AOPA who knows the owners and he might be able to help me get in. Even though waxing airplanes would be laboruos, It would be great to be at an airport and GA. I could meet all sorts of awsome people there. I hope I could get a job there.

I know of some FBOs that offer their employees (including line-guys) discounted flight lessons/training/rental as well.  Working around planes and then getting some money off to go fly sure beats anything else  Tongue

Yeah, I don't think they'll hire me, because there is really nothing to do, I would like to get a job at my FBO though, It would really help the wallet.

There are always things to do!  Cool ...there just isn't always enough money [in the budget] to compensate new employees, which is why many are not hired.  Talk to your local FBO.  I'm sure even if they don't need any help right now, you'll already have given your name to them, and they will likely come to you if/when they need someone in the future.

the FBO at my Airport is going to be given over in about a year to the township, the airport is looking at major renovations (new taxiway, FBO, restaurant, new corporate operations, bussinesses on field, new hangers)
So soon, They might need some help when things pick up, my worry is them putting in all these new corporate hangers with busseness is that the businesses wont come in and we will be screwed with fuel costs, hanger rental, ect.

Hm, I was googling about this one, but I didn't find anythin.

737-230(A)

So, it's a 737-200, right? But what the 30 and A means in the abbreviation?

Thanks.

AFAIK for things like a, 737-230(a), the 30 part is the airline code. Not sure what the (a) is. The 2 is 200 as in a 737-200. So put them together and you have 737-230.

If you go look at Southwest's 737's, you will see 737-3H4 for most of the 737-300's, and 737-7H4 for most of the 737-700's.

For Delta, they use 32. So you'd have a 737-832, 767-332, 777-232 and so on.

Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi Fra, and all

Chaos is right, the last two digits represent the Boeing customer codes. A nice list of all boeing customer codes is listed here http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk/ and just surf to the "Boeing codes" section. I think the list is mantained up to date.

BTW, nice pics from Ohrid, seems a very nice place! Smiley

Personally, I'm anxious to get to see my first 787 "Dreamliner" in real life.  The promo videos make it look like an incredibly sexy jet.  

Interestingly, when I asked my sister (an MAE at Boeing Wichita) about it, she said that the distinctive wingtips (swept back and up in a sort of winglet look) have less to do with aerodynamics and more to do with marketing.  She assured me that the engineers have been trying their darnedest to make it look like what the public has been shown.

some of the varients we have in Australia of the same aircraft type have different door layouts. The example I'm thinking of is the 767-338 which has one main forward door and then two overwing exits, and the 767-336 which has two main forward doors and one larger overwing exit.


To answer a question from well before. Australia does get 777's but none of our own airlines have them. Most of the 777's seen in Australia come from Southeast Asia, New Zealand or Europe/asia, but none from the local airlines.


Nowadays I find the usual airliners easy to identify... it's the GA I have issues with. I mean I can tell a Cessna 172 and a Cessna 152, or a Piper Chrokee to a Tomahawlk... Cirruis SR22, C182, C177, Baron B58, and so on, but it's when you see something you have never seen before and you go "what is... that?"

Texan T-Bird was one of the one's I only reicently discovered, and there's a bunch of anphibians I walk past to get to my flight school's C172's which I can't Identify either. Robinson R22 and R44 are easy, favourite is the Aerospaciale Dauphin II and similar as far as helos go... There's still a whole bunch of planes down at the local GAAP though that I can't tell you what they are.

Those "bumbs" on the F100 are not for the thrust reversers but for the airbrakes.

Yeah, its the 737-200, pre 1986, when they stoped producing the 732s and switched to the 737 3/4/5.

the A is for advanced, as in the 727-200 A, Basically it means what it says, more advanced than the previous 100s.

the following numbers are the order codes from Boeing.

And got ya on the 777

Yeah, the lines in the 787 will be more descret than actualy shown. Should be amazing to see it role out. Also, the new 747-800 looks sweet, you gotta love the cut out fins on the engines.
