The world's largest passenger aircraft is now flying the world's longest route after Qantas replaced its Boeing 747s with Airbus A380 superjumbos on the Sydney-Dallas route.

Nasty Autopilot Secrets

As you probably know, every major airline and lots of the not so major ones capture flight data and use it as part of safety reporting programs — pilots refer to them as “snitch systems.” Any time there's a deviation of any kind, the system automatically reports it and, understandably, identifies the pilot behind the misdeed. Not every mistake or oversight is going to get you busted, but there are a lot of them that will. Some will get you fired. The fairness of such a system is open to debate,… (www.flyingmag.com) Meer...
