Mentour Pilot Explains Airliner Designs
Posted by keavdog on Sunday, August 05, 2018 3:38 AM

 

I stumbled across this on YouTube.  These guys go into details about winglets, engine designs, the new chevrons on engine nacelles etc...  Really interesting stuff.  Check them out here:

All I saw was a long-winded introduction.  Does it get better?

His early stuff was a bit more casual.  He's settled into a format which allows new visitors to get their bearings.  You can often safely skip forward a couple of minutes.

He's a Swedish-born ATP specifically type rated for the 737-800.  His focus is split between those wanting to become ATP and for those just flying as passengers.

Some of the videos are simpler than others.  There have been times I've wondered if that was just Swedish-to-English issues.  Don't know.

The videos can be ery interesting.  And do asnwer the occasional vexing question.  Like why the vanes on airliner engine couwlings; or the "blank" windows on the 737, or the flat spots un the bottoms of the engine nacelles.

Phil_H - better link for sure.  Don - lots of good short videos on subjects.  I think CapnMac nailed it regarding content.

Thanks,

John
