From the KLM cockpit: Flight across the Atlantic in the cockpit of a Boeing 777-200 (Video)
KLM continues the "Cockpit Tales" series in the cockpit of a Boeing 777-200. In this video, the emphasis was on crossing the Atlantic Ocean on the Amsterdam - New York route.
Every day, over 4000 flights are operated across the Atlantic in terms of safety and maximum efficiency, although there are areas with less or no radar coverage for several hours. How is that possible? Find out the answer in the clip below.
The sky is divided into several colors of flight. Across the North Atlantic there are 10 special colors, 5 in each direction. Upon entering these routes, aircraft are required to fly at a certain speed and at a predetermined altitude so as not to intersect.
