Smile A big hello from mumbai

Hi everyone,

I was pleasantly surprised opening my mail box a few days back. Finally, got into one of the best forums for automotive enthusiasts. I have always been into cars and bikes from a very young age. By profession, I am a commercial pilot based out of Mumbai and also completed my engineering from pune.

I started driving with a bajaj chetak and have graduated to bikes, cars and finally airplanes. In my family we have owned a variety of cars like hyundai santro, Maruti Wagon R, Honda City(gen 2), Hyundai i20 and newest addition will be a Mahindra Scorpio AT arriving next month.

On a final note it is nice to a part of such a responsible forum and I hope to value add as much as I can. Signing off and take care.

Welcome to the forum.

The Scorpio AT is pretty loud vehicle though it moves quiet rapidly.

Which Airplane do you fly regularly ?

Ok.

A quiz for you Jetblast101.

Can you tell me which engine of the 737-800 powers the airconditioner on the aircraft ?

Are you an AME or technician by any chance, I guess the it depends on the operating packs so it could be engine no.1, engine no.2, the apu or a ground cart.

I am saying with refernce to the aircraft in the air.
I know that you should know all this by heart to handle emergency situations.
Please answer with reference to the aircraft flying in the air.

Ok. The Airconditioner is powered by both engines. The earlier models used to be powered only by the Right Engine. Please read your Maintenance Books & Emergency Procedures Booklet(memorize this one please) also.

Do keep this in mind as in case of an emergency this information will help you save lives.

Dude your question was a little ambiguous but I think I gave a pretty specific answer straight out of the technical manual you can check and FYI even an APU is sufficient for a single pack operation in flight.
