Overweight takeoff / flight by Koopas Ly
Howdy again, After reading NTSB reports that attribute the cause of the accident to exceeding the airplane's maximum takeoff weight, I began wondering about the effects of an overweight takeoff within C.G. limits. Specifically, what would I have to do differently when flying an airplane that's...

Underwater egress by Duane MacInnis
I just did the "Dunk-U" course yesterday. www.dunk-you.com This was the most interesting thing I have done in a long time. Gives a whole new perspective to flying over water. Required by my pals at www.angelflight.ca Rule #1 -- Wear your life...

Light Twins. How soft??? by Montblack
I keep hearing "the market for Light Twins is soft." Anyone have any tales to tell? Are used Light Twins not selling these days, or are they selling for what some would consider "bargain" prices, or both? Did the economy's shake-up knock quite a few people out of the Twin tree - people who were...

Amazing Wind Shear Today by Jay Honeck
We flew to Rantoul, IL today -- home of the Chanute Air Museum, on the site of the former Chanute Air Force Base. The wind was predicted to be howling -- winds aloft were calling for 54 knots at 6000 feet! -- but the sun was shining, and we were enjoying our first Saturday off since last Oshkosh....

Touchscreen Electronic Flight Computers by DeltaDeltaDelta
An aviator friend told me today that he heard about a new electronic FC with a touch screen instead of the usual keyboard. However, he did not know the make or model. Did anyone hear about this device? I'm very inserested in getting one, but searching the net, I only find CXs and Techstars. Any...

TWC by Jerry Jesion
Anyone see the report on the Weather Channel about the pilot who crashed in the Rockies just west of Corons pass in late 1998? On the way to Steamboat Springs from Boulder, got caught in a blizzard and went down. No real injuries, and they were found by a cross country skiier after a few hours. ...

Characteristic airplane injuries by Ben Jackson
The fuel selector in my Comanche is ringed by the pushbuttons that let you read the quantity in tanks other than the selected tank. My index finger is just long enough that I manage to scrape my knuckle on one of these each time I switch tanks in a counter-clockwise direction. In a Cessna 172D I...

35 Airports In One Day Web Site by Paul Magid
A couple of years back a pair of brothers (?) rented a Piper Arrow and flew it to 35 airports in the San Francisco Bay Area starting at Reid Hillview and ending up back there. One of them did a web site describing this exploit. For the life of me, I can not find the web site. I really liked that...

R/C Airplane Flight Characteristics by Ralph the Red
Here's a good question. How come when you stall an R/C Airplane and kick full aileron at it you can't get a stall spin like in real planes? I've tried it with multiple R/C planes and never have seen anyone else have it happen. Is it a weight or wing loading issue?

GPS Choices by Sully
I was wondering if I could get some input from others on a few GPS's? I have been looking at the Garmin 196 & Street Pilot III as well as the Lowrance 500 & 1000. The major advantage that I see with the 196 is that you can use it for turn by turn directions in a vehicle. I have been looking at...

Anyone know how to update an old Loran database? by Tom Jackson
I have looked around on the 'net, and cannot find any reference to being able to update an old Apollo loran database (like can be done with the modern GPS units.) I have an Apollo 604, with the latest update (1999, I think.) It seems to me, that there must be some tech-wizards out there who...

Medical deferred by Kevin Young
(Also posted to rec.aviation.student - apologies if you're reading it a second time!) My class 3 medical has been deferred to the FAA. I'd be grateful for any advice on how to proceed and what to expect. Is this really as long and convoluted a process as I've heard? There are 2 companies that...

Guard Frequency Question by G.R. Patterson III
As most of us have been doing these days, I spend a fair amount of flight time listening to 121.5. This frequency has always had some sort of low level hiss and crackle on it that I don't hear on other communications frequencies. Does anyone know what causes this? George Patterson Some people...
