    Travel Service is the latest airline to join the Just Planes cockpit video series. Being based in the Czech Republic, Travel Service operates a fleet of 737 aircraft which includes the 700, 800, and the 900ER. In this program we will be riding along with the flight crew as they operate the 737-900ER from Prague to Funchal airport. It might be a bit surprising, but this is the first time that Just Planes will be featuring the 737-900. While it isn’t an exceptionally unique aircraft, it is nonetheless the perfect opportunity to see this aircraft in action.

    The program starts off in the typical fashion where the flight crew reviews their dispatch documents which covers NOTAMS, weather, routing and payload. While some may find this segment insignificant, it is important to note that this is a crucial part of a pilots job and it provides a detailed look at the decision making process of the pilots before each flight. For a flight simulator enthusiast or up and coming pilots, learning to make good decisions in the flight planning phase is an essential skill that can prevent many unpleasant surprises during your flight.  Once this is completed, we join the captain on a detailed walk-around of the aircraft where you will be able to see the obvious difference in length between the 737-800 and the 737-900. The walk-around inspection of an aircraft is yet another essential procedure prior to flying since any abnormal findings can easily cause a flight to be delayed or cancelled. After completing the walk-around we head into the cockpit where the remaining preflight and departure procedures are completed.

    With Funchal being such a challenging airport that requires specific training and certification for pilots, it was interesting to see that our departure from Prague was flown by the first officer initially and then command of the aircraft was switched to the captain who is specifically allowed to land at Funchal airport. During our flight, the captain provided some interesting details on this requirement and I think that the viewers will really appreciate just how challenging this airport can be. Other insightful segments of this program features presentations on the company, the 737-900 features, detailed review of departure and arrival procedures and as always, a variety of stunning views from the cockpit flying in and out of Funchal. With the skill and professionalism of the Travel Service crew being nicely displayed throughout this program, it certainly promotes the company as being a safe and friendly airline to fly with. Ultimately, if you are a fan of the 737, then this program is certainly worth adding to your collection.
