What is BLOCK TIME? Explained by Captain Joe

Today I´ll be explaining all about the block time! Did you know what is going below your passenger seat just prior before the aircraft is being pushed back. The so called "chocks or blocks" are being removed, but why are they there in the first place? To find out more, watch the video :) Big thank you to Tufan Sevincel who supported my with a water plane video.

Brenda Duarte: Hey Joe, I've been in the airline industry for over 30 years, and I get asked "what does ETOPS mean? Can you explain it to your viewers sometime? I like to tell them "Engines Turn Or People Swim"! ;)

daniel darian: Joe, why are you in a 747 simulator? Are you training on that one or what? Just out of curiosity. Also, can you explain how ILS works? Thanks!

Martin Lally: You are one of my favourite youtubers.

Tim Rebernik: Does planes can have flat tire

Like if you agree

Akinkunmi Samuel: captain Joe what airline do you work with

Jamie Slaney: I work in ground operations at a major airport and most passengers think the off-block time is the actual take off time which is a common misunderstanding- should show them this fantastic video

Otacatapetl: I'm surprised there isn't a mechanical parking brake like on a road vehicle, but I suppose weight is an issue.

TONPUSON0: English subtitles would help non-native English speaker like me

ztodorovic 011: NICE GREEN SCREEN HE WASNT IN JET ALL HIS VIDEOS

ELIAS KOUNT: Thumb up earned (y)

pahom: 12 hours is a very long interval. Usually planes aren't sit for that long. So why do they put blocks anyway?

sam bee: Am i the only one that thinks Captain Joe is kind of cute XD

benjamin liew: 2:56 Hi sir, may I know what's your name? Captain Joe. Sure here is your boarding pass! Have a good flight! "Hands over the ticket"

Vishwas D: Hi Joe I have a beautiful question to you
How does the handle (side stick in a320) works in boing 757

Ariel Cantil: Hi Capt. Joe. Can you tell us about Holding Pattern :)

Daniel Whitham: hi Joe. What are your top 5 european airports you like flying to and from?

Richard Getz: what a great channel, thank you!! P.S. Love the logo!

sct913: Thanks for another great video. Always wondered how commercial pilots logged their actual on-duty time.

rchandraonline: Why are you viewing this? It's not a real boarding pass, silly.

The answer is, almost any time I see a QR code, I'm curious as to what was encoded, or if it's just a simulated QR code or if it's genuine/computer legible.

KLM Pilot: Could you make a short video that will explain the diploma and the formation that we need to be a copilot?
