A 10,000' runway means that I can wait a while before going into beta and save both wear and tear on the brakes and the engines, and that is even with landing above 100K pounds!

Always enjoyable, Guido.
Thanks!

Previous comment was in reference to AFTER LANDING the Citation V regarding directional control and possible unexpected cross wind gusts with thrust reversers deployed.Thought in was a good habit to always keep one hand on the controls at all times.AFTER LANDING. However there is an exception to this rule if you are operating an aircraft that has a tiller wheel used for steering when rudder is no longer effective at reduced speed after landing.In which case the left hand would be on the tiller wheel and the right hand on the throttles. The advanced high tech. autopilot operation IN FLIGHT does not require a high degree of airmanship skill, more in the nature of command input management and aircraft control monitering.(i.e. navigation,rate of climb,airspeed,altitude, etc.)
Great Videos-Keep up the good work.
Correct me if I am wrong on my comment.

Gr8 VDO, my friend Guido Warnecke.
Did change setting of play back as advised earlier to be able to watch nicely.
But my longing remains ! To download the clip in short time. Ofcourse, I do remember your limitations.
So no complaints.

Excellent landing and video Guido. I remember a few of them many years ago.

However, I noticed you turned off your landing light leaving the active runway. Is this personal preference? I was always taught to leave them on in daylight until parked in order to ward off birds in vicinity of the runway and taxiway.

Thanks Gene!
With the landing lights, I don't really know...
Certainly does not harm to leave them on.

I'd say it depends on the airplane...landing lights are usually (on big jets, anyway) major producers of heat, and don't take kindly to being on when there is little cooling airflow.

Plus, it looks unprofessional when the B737, B757/767, (or name your airliner) taxis to the ramp and to the gate with all the lights on...if a fellow pilot hasn't already made a sarcastic remark on the frequency, then the ramp marshaller will definitely give you some attitude.

Tim, as a guy who has marshalled literally thousands of airplanes, I can attest to what you said. Not only is it extremely annoying, and sometimes literally painful, it also makes it almost impossible to see your wingtips. Leaving the strobes on isn't quite the same safety issue, but I guarantee the ramp guys are going to be rolling their eyes. The worst for me, personally, is marshalling out a night departure with wands, and instead of flashing the taxi light when they're ready to go, a crew will nail you in the eyes with every light on the airplane. That would be a bad time to have a lip reader for a crew member!

That's a good comment. I put the lights on for a flash to let line crew know we are ready for taxi, otherwise they stay off in areas where you can annoy people on the ground.
Have I forgotten to switch the strobes off after landing and taxied on the ramp... yes, guilty as charged... :-)
Happy Landing,

Yeah, the Taxi Light flash is the preferred way to "salute" at night. If you're standing at the Captain's 10-11 o'clock position for the "Clear To Taxi" signal, it might be the Runway Turn Off Lights that he/she uses as the "salute" that will get you in the eyes. (Sometimes the Taxi Light might be INOP?).

Personally, I have pet peeves about inappropriate lights (like strobes) on the ground at night (or daytime, for that matter). That's why they are on the (our airline's) 'After Landing' checklist, after all.

Good point, Tim. I did not think about the heat issue.

I enjoyed watching this, for me flying a PA28 and having not long started flying solo... 8 hr's only, its great to see that despite being a modern business Jet there were so many similarities, thanks for making the effort.
okguido
Thank you Peter.
All the best for you flight training!

Thanks for a great vid. It's very helpful to have the explanation of what you are doing throughout the procedures. Look forward to many more vids - safe flying.

Thank you very much Noel.
More videos are in the works.

You are so cool. You get to fly cutting edge airplanes like the Citation V and the King Air 100 and you get to wear a pilot's uniform. I want to be like you someday!

Yep, but opinions can be like buttholes - everybody has one, but they usually stink.

If you don't have a tiller wheel, keep a hand on the yoke at all times. The flight controls on that airplane are not hydraulic.

wahh?

I never flew a Citation, but I'm guessing the controls are hydraulic. Also a tiller is a tiller, and a wheel is a wheel...

lamont, this comment is confusing. Care to elaborate?

(I ask because, in nearly three decades flying airliners, I found it isn't necessary to "keep a hand on the yoke" when using the A/P...in fact, it is counter-intuitive. Unless you have a CWS function, but we really never use that feature anyways).

Just curious. How does tiller use correlate to autopilot usage? I'll let you get back to your flight sim airline job.
okguido
Thanks for your input, Tim.... :-)
