Default Chassis design.

Michael,

How much work actually goes into designing the actual chassis plate (alu plate)? For all intents and purposes, it looks just like a milled piece of aluminium but I'm sure there is more to it than that.

A lot is said about the stiffness of the chassis plate - how much of this comes from the "mixture" of elements making up the Aluminium and how much from the design, milling and thickness?

Cheers, Mark.

Come on, you Ozzies have the best sun cream in the world - I'm sure one of your "bandage" factor sun creams would protect you

Oh yes but I thought they are changing to the 777... No?

The Equatorial hotel in Bangi?

You should make a visit ! Perhaps a demo drive would be cool.

Well, I was told that most take off and landing are taken care by the onboard computer. Some sort of pre-programmed for every airport around the world.

Despite all this, a pilot needs to land the plane manually and that he/she needs to clock in the number of manual landings / take-offs. So if you that the landings on the plane sucks, you know that those are those times when the pilot needs to land the plane manually !

Of course, I would not know if this is all true...
