Exam-O-Grams by [email protected]
Hello all! I was recently in a local used book store, and on their aviation shelf, there was a bound copy (if staples count as binding) of FAA publication AAC-45C, containing VFR and IFR "Exam-O-Grams". Using the search at the FAA, plus a little Googling of both the Web and Usenet, seems to show...

MX, Fishing and Adios by Jay Beckman
Hello All, I truly can not understand is why R.A.P. is dysfunctioning so differently from any other collection of like minded people. If MX were to stroll into the middle of Jay's campsite at OSH and begin to spew his tripe about flying in general and GA in particular, at the very least,...

Flying *Through* DC by Larry R[_2_]
While doing some preliminary planning for a June trip from KLOU to KWWD ( Cape May, NJ), my "direct" path would take me right over the center of DC ( in the Prohibited area). I have reviewed the articles and AOPA advice on travelling in and arround the ADIZ, and know the procedures. Most of that...

Call for flight department guide for employee pilots by Jim Carter[_1_]
I need to propose a reinstatement of our company's policy or allowing employees to fly private aircraft on business. I have a copy of our old plan which was closed down because it was too hard to administer given the limited number of pilots that qualified and used it. I'd appreciate those among...

First Commercial Mail Transport Flight was 81 Years Ago Today (4/6) by Jon
I received the following in an e-mail at work. If it perhaps drifts a bit off-topic at points, I hope I still have a few get-out-of-thread- drift-jail-free cards left ;) At first I was thinking of trimming it down to just contain the section on the flight; but then I thought some might find...

How I spent Spring Break by john smith[_2_]
I awoke Monday morning to a bright blue sky. Turning on the computer, I pulled up the aviationweather.gov site. Prog charts looked good. TAF's looked good. Then I looked at the winds aloft. WHOA!!! Surface winds were less than 10 knots. 3000 foot winds were thumping along at 30-40 knots. 6000 foot...

His FO coupled the autopilot to the ILS about 30 miles out. Approach control pointed out traffic from the northeast that was to...

Der Synchrophaser! by TheSmokingGnu
How exactly does a synchrophaser work? What is it measuring to make its adjustments? Why does it have to be off for takeoff and landing? What voodoo is contained therein (and what's the difference between a mechanical and electronic version)? TheSmokingGnu

Altimeter Calibration Height by TheSmokingGnu
Here's one that may seem silly: to what height, precisely, is an altimeter calibrated to? The bottom of the landing gear? The height of the static port? the chord line of the fuselage? In a Cessna, the difference between these is minimal, but on an airliner, you're talking about a possible +/-...

AOPA milestone by Travis Marlatte
AOPA is publicizing that they have reached a new membership milestone. And, that would be 411,187 members. Wow! That's fantastic. I can't wait until they reach their next milestone. Which, I guess, would be 411,188 members. -- ------------------------------- Travis Lake N3094P

Vehicular Ramp Access by Marco Leon
In the interest of security, our airport management wants to ban all automobile access to our aircraft at Republic Airport (KFRG). It was the hot topic of discussion during our last tenant meeting on 3/14--a meeting with the largest turnout of pilots since its inception. Interestingly, other...
