Description



Lauda Air, founded in 1979, becomes the 225th airline to join the World Air Routes series. Today the airline is fully owned by Austrian and operates a fleet of Boeing 737NGs.

In this nearly 4 hour program we fly all 3 series of 737s, the 600 to Romania and 700 to Serbia which is featured for the 1st time and becomes the 162nd Country in the series! as well as the 800 on charter flights to 3 destinations in Greece. As with our 4 Austrian programs currently available, the crews here are great and inform our viewers about everything they possibly can concerning the flights, the aircraft and more!   The pilots also make a series of presentations in German.

For the past 20 years Just Planes has been producing high-quality cockpit videos, initially in VHS and now for a long time on DVD. During this time the company has featured more than 100 types of aircraft and flown to more than 800 destinations!  Recently they released a Lauda Air Boeing 737-600/700/800, the 5th DVD in the Austrian Airlines Group, and this was a good opportunity for us to take a closer look. The program can be selected in German and English. The German version basically includes presentations by the pilots while all communications during the flights are in English. The crew also does the presentations in English.

The pilots go through flight preparations such as weather, fuel planning, routing which are explained in details. The departure routes are discussed as are the primary flight display, navigation display, flight management computer, autopilot as well as calculations of V1, Vr and V, checklists, an external walkaround of the aircraft, approach charts and briefings. One 2 of the flights we learn about turbulence and how the pilots avoid a storm.

In conclusion. This DVD has a running time of around 4 hours which is very pleasing compared to other DVDs out there. The footage from the first to the last minute is very insightful and informative. Soundtrack is clear and discussions are well understood. What really impressed me was the camerawork which allows us to follow almost everything the pilots do and eplain. Since September 11 this is the best way of witnessing flights in the cockpit.

This DVD is quite amazing. This is the first time I have ever seen the operations of an airline that uses the 737NGs and it was quite a treat to see just how far the 737 has come in terms of technology.

The DVD starts off with a ground briefing from the crew who are about to embark on their first leg from Vienna to Santorini Greece. The Captain and First officer did a fantastic job at explaining in detail each step of their preparations both on the ground and in the cockpit. After the first flight, the Captain takes us on a detailed walk around of the aircraft pointing out critical areas that are often checked to ensure the aircraft will operate without any problems.

One of the highlights on this DVD for me was the opportunity to see the operations of the 737-600 which is not quite common. Another interesting flight is the OS773 flight from Vienna to Belgrade with thunderstorms nearly all the way. The crew does a great job at navigating through the storms and what’s amazing is that despite the poor weather the Capt puts down a pretty descent landing. This DVD will definitely appeal to the 737NG lovers out there and one of the great features of this DVD is that it comes in two languages, English and German.

To anyone who loves the 737, the Lauda Air DVD will not disappoint you. It shows the 737 in all its glory and the crew does a fantastic job at explaining in detail the day to day operations of the 737NG series. In conclusion, I would like to say that the $30 that you will pay for these DVD’s really translates to buying a priceless experience, it is definitely worth every penny!
