The Engine's Out! On Purpose!

EcoGeek is willing to try a lot of weird stuff to tramadol best buy cut back on wow)) canadian cialis and healthcare use of various resources. But it's with mixed glee that we announce this next particular advancement--mixed because it sounds like a great idea, but EcoGeek's going to wait to see it work a few times before participating: planes in New Zealand will now be cutting the engine before landing because, hey, who needs to accelerate when you've got gravity on your side?

OK, so the engines won't be totally cut--they'll be idling--but the point is that the planes will be saving on energy and online ordering viagra cutting back on emissions a bit. When you think about all the commercial flights in and out of any given airport on any given day, any small saving on each flight could really stack up.

According to The Age, it sounds like the most difficult part is actually changing the amount of time and space between planes landing, rather than any mechanical adjustments to the fuel-light landing.

Could be dangerous

That sounds like a great plan to save the environment. But it can also be dangerous. The safest way is buy generic viagra canada to land with 60% to 75% engine power, in case the pilot needs to "Go Around" at the very last minute. There has been many cases where other pilots and airport crew have ignored the tramadol 180 overnight c o d rules and entered the runway as an airplane was landing. The pilots in charge of landing the aircraft had to make a last minute decision to abort the landing and go around to re-try the landing procedure.

Almost all jet engines take about 10 seconds to speed up from "Idle" to "Full" power. Most airliners land at an average speed of 110 knots. if it takes 10 seconds for the engines to speed up, and another 10 to 20 seconds for the aircraft to pill cheap viagra speed up and create lift, that is almost 30 seconds. The distance traveled over or close to the runway in that time period could cause a major accident. Even aircraft manuals indicate minimum engine power for landing. And since the North American aviation regulations are closely tied to these laws of physics, I don't see the same situation happening in North America. That is unless the manufacturers make new engines (they are in the process to) that have faster response time.
If America adopts this then,..

given their history of air crashes by STUPID pilots and ground controllers, your in for a deathmatch.

Why not save when moving around the runw

It seems to me that I spend far more time, rolling around the runway, either waiting to take off or waiting for a gate to open up. Instead of using the plane's jets for mobility, why not use something similar to those trucks that push the plane away from the gate? Use these small trucks to 5 mg original brand cialis pull the how to get cialis no prescription plane to runway, use them to bring them to the gate.
I'm sure that it would tons of fuel if planes were not idling for 40 minutes before takeoff and only for you online pharmacy viagra using their full to push themselves around the runway.
I can't see this taking off
