    Modified the level of gas in the tank
    Did they sound insulate the flight deck bulkhead? Or do you still hear the screaming passengers?.



    Too soon? :crapstorm:

    I was too well trained to fly the airplane to ever have to find out. First world problems.

    Good to hear. I knew the windows hadn’t been changed but wasn’t sure how much engine noise you can hear up there. My dad always told me that I would be surprised by the noise in the cockpit of the 737. He never flew a Max so he wasn’t able to give me a report on them

    Like @Bushed said, it is noticeably quieter from the engine noise and wind vortex generators.

    The one part of the 737 that always surprised me of how loud it is....the noise that the nose wheel makes as it spins down in the wheel-well when you raise the landing gear. Some of the older NG models, and definitely the Classics, have a super loud spin down.

    You know what is amazing about that nose wheel noise? It is WAY quieter than a Gulfstream. The nose gear in that hits the uplocks with such force that you swear something broke. It is pretty unnerving the first time you hear it.

    I am now one of the “old guys”.....celebrated my 20th anniversary at NJA back in March. Never would’ve thought I would’ve been here this long (total of 27 years getting paid for this job) but it’s been a great job and made lots of great friends. Here’s to 11 more, will be 65, then it’s off to the golf course full time.

    This is for all the guys starting out....it can be achieved. I started out in C-152’s back in 1987

    I can show you a crap ton of ASAPs that would say otherwise. You obviously haven’t been in aviation long enough. There but for the grace of God go I.

    Moved out of the city last year and into a more rural area ... now we have some daily civilian rotary wing traffic ...

    And today had 2 -- AH-64's fly over ... they were kinda low ... cell pic with no telescopic lens used.

    Here's the old girls doing what they're designed for - picking up and dropping off bullets and turning money into noise.

    Here's them doing what they do most often otherwise - getting fixed.

    PXL_20210323_003831144.jpg


    And here's the go bit, a GE 701D. Just a baby engine compared to a lot of stuff these other guys fly. This is the one that oversped on one of my guys. Technically didn't quite exceed the NG RPM max speed and require replacement but it needed a replacement cold section for an upgrade so we ripped it out anyway.

    Another round in the sim! Just finished up ETOPS training and I found it very interesting. I’ve never done Class II Nav or ETOPS so this was a fun training experience. Looking forward to some Hawaii trips.

    A lot of planes are ETOPs certified, not just the maxes.

    Or for a ton of other twin engine airframes. Like basically anything from a 777 or A350 on down.
