The joke called TSA by Spockstuto
Your tax dollars at work HARTSFIELD ORDEAL Our sympathies go out to anyone caught in the incredible mess at Hartsfield International Airport on Saturday. I'm told that literally thousands missed flights because there weren't enough TSA screeners on duty to get the job done. Here is just one of...

Snow... by Dan Luke
....it's hard to see through, and good ol' Gulf Coast home boys like me should not mess around with it. Christmas Eve I was flying my daughter and grandson to Houston to visit my mom for the holiday. We'd spent the previous day in a little town NE of Houston. It was only about a 45 nm flight...

Burning out the pitot heat? by Mitty
Hangar flying today, one high-time CFII, MEI, etc. expressed concern with leaving the pitot heat on in warmer weather. Says he wants the heat in clouds so the pitot doesn't fill up with mist/moisture/water but he turns it off in the clear for fear of burning it out. I've never heard or read about...

MS flight simulator 2004 by Matt Whiting
Santa delivered Flight Simulator and a Cyborg joystick this year. I plan to use it to help maintain instrument currency when I don't have time for the real thing. I'm finding the learning curve for FS to be a little steep initially and it is taking a while to get things like the joystick...

IFR ticket vs. professional training (MD, PhD...) by G. Sylvester
I got into a discussion with an non-pilot MD comparing a professional degree versus flying. My background, BS and MS from the top 2 bioengineering programs in the US. (note, I put *much* more weight to experience over letters after a name including my own). Flying-wise, I have a PPL and about 33...

backup cockpit lighting by Josef Burger
What do you use for extra and backup lighting in the cockpit for IFR flights at night? Some airplanes have pretty decent lighting built in. Others can have decent cockpit lighting and poor panel lighting. Others have shadows in poor locations, or areas of the panel/cockpit you'd really like to...

AWOS by [email protected]
A friend of mine just gave me a toll free number to obtain AWOS at any airport. Just call +1 (877) 269-2967, and key in the airport identifier when requested. It requires listening to a commercial, but it's a quick and easy way to get an AWOS report.

Prepping for IR checkride - questions by Paul Folbrecht
Hello all, I've made the appointment for my IR checkride, although it's still a ways out, and had a couple things on my mind. 1) Concerning the heading standards (+- 10 degrees, of course), I find that I still, at this point, _occasionally_ exceed them, _especially_ in prepping for an approach...

Don't always believe the AWOS... by Steven Barnes
I got my IR last August and finally got to log my 1st post-checkride actual approach. All while the airport I was landing at was reporting 10 miles and clear below 12,000. More like 1,200. All day long this place was reporting clear skies. All day long it varied between 1,200 and 1,700. ATC read...

What causes the BANG when an airliner lifts off? by G Farris
I've flown a lot of planes, of different sizes, and I always lift off gently. When I fly as a passenger on an airliner though, there is a "thud" or even a "bang" as the main wheels leave the runway. Sometimes this bang is so loud is frightens passengers, and once it was strong enough (on a 777...

RNP .3 Without GPS by [email protected]
Most RNAV approaches have the notations: "GPS or RNP - 0.3 required", and "DME/DME RNP - 0.3 not authorized" 1. The "or RNP .3" seems to imply some navigation unit other than gps can have rnp .3 Any idea what? 2. If an FMS with rnp .3 is able to conduct this approach, wouldn't it need a gps...
