Gps with voice, "talking" GPS by gyrobob
Does there exist a handheld GPS that talks? A very nice lady here at work wants to give her hubby a gift for his retirement, and she knows he likes GPSs, and she knows he likes the voice feature. So far I have not found one for her that talks. The only GPSs I know of that talk are permanently...

Low and high altitude airways by David Megginson
(K. Ari Krupnikov) writes: I've never flown a jet airway (and probably never will, except on an airliner), but here's a question. There are fewer J routes than V, and they connect fewer navaids. So it can happen that your destination is quite far from the nearest...

Publishing this is a step in the wrong direction - we seem to be even further away from getting the ILS...

(long) WxWorx arrived...(and NavAero) by Lenny Sawyer
Thanks for the good product review Dan. I have had the same experience with my setup. The install was easy and once you convinced the XMRadio Customer Service Rep that they had the package you wanted things went smoothly. I had a Fujitsu Tablet PC that had a great screen, but it was just too...

Are handheld GPSes becoming a defacto primary nav source? by Paul Tomblin
This week I did several IFR flights, some in IMC and most in VMC. On a couple of those flights, ATC offered me direct to the next VOR after the one I was navigating to, well before I could actually pick up the signal. One time departing Rochester, they told me to go direct Elmira when I was less...

Why some approaches are NA as alternates by Ben Jackson
What is the reason for an approach (or a whole airport) to be NA as an alternate? Is there some attribute an approach has to have to be worthy of being filed as an alternate? The one that got me wondering was KAST (Astoria, OR) which is NA except for the VOR Rwy 8 when it also has ILS/LOC and GPS...

Second Stage Climb Gradient? by Bill
I was told by a co-worker that a new Part 91-mandatory compliance reg has come out, requiring all airplanes to meet a min. climb gradient of 2.5% for second stage climb gradient, unless published otherwise. In other words, if no specific gradient is published for XYZ airport, then the airplane must...
