Has anyone got this warning? or actually no warning.

Recommended Posts

After a flight from Palma De Mallorca to Gibraltar, I went under Failures to how many hours I have flown. And there was one active failure, and I looked with amazement, to see which failure I had got. Without any warning comming up. :)And there it was, a Nose Tire Balance failure. Does anyone know something about this? I have looked in the FCOM and searched the net but no dice.. :(To me it just have to be that the nose gear is out of balance and needs to be recalibrated? :)Best regards and happy landingsJakob

Had this happen once, too. I think it happens when you make sharp turns at high speeds too often. I try to slow down to about 10 kn before making those kind of turns, never had it happen since.Quote from the Intro PDF:"Nose tire imbalance can be caused by excessive wear on the nose gear tires, or by touching down nose wheel first. If you hear a very loud (and annoying!) rattle as the nose lifts off during takeoff, you likely need to service the nose tires!)"

If I recall correctly, this failure showed up on my NGX after touching down a little too hard at Innsbruck, LOWI, the other day. At least that's what I thought to be the reason back then...Oliver BranaschkySent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Do you experienced more vibrations from the airplane or the failure was only shown on the CDU?On the real one the pilots are the only ones able to determine this "failure" and the result is an high vibration varying with speed.

Front tire is out of balance, or you have flat spots on the tire from "mishandling" the plane :) LOL I just had to say that considering you just got a job as a 737 F/O.. BTW congrats on the new job and don't destroy any real 737 tires

Haha :-) well I haven't miss treated the plane I can assure you of that. But I could have taken a turn to fast or sharp where my mind was gone for a sec or two. :-) But I know that in turns your speed should be very slow. :-P Thank you very much, and I won't do that! They are crazy expensive! :-P

Well for some years now you will not taxi anyway (captain basically always taxis, most if not all planes dont even have nosewheel control on FO side), so no sweat :)

Hi Fabo, oh I know that, but still would never ever do something rash! ;-) Being safe and filling the procedures is the only way. Besides the times when you have to think out of the box. ;-)

That seems to be a good basic guide to surviving as an airline pilot.When can we expect some real Jettime configurations coming by the way? :)

As far as I can remember they were ex british airways, but I'm searching in my pictures gallery to be sure about them.One of them was EI-DMR (previously named G-DOCR) the other G-DOCB.They were "curious" -400.On the overhead panel they have the digital meters like on the NGs, but, the engine gauges are analogic like on older 737, double tiller and digital emergency annunciators.
