Ouch - $2/gal/hr by Hilton
Hi, Our RHV-based club (San Jose) just increased its prices by $2/gal/hr effective immediately; 172s are now over $100, Arrow is $130 - I don't even want to think what the Duchess will be when it gets its new engines (pilor error gear up). They said it was entirely due to fuel prices. I asked if...

Aviation headsets and NASCAR noise by Casey Wilson
I have a couple aviation headsets (not active noise suppression) that I'm thinking of taking to the NASCAR race in California in September. I can plug my handheld scanner into the portable intercom, so that appears to make a good package. Although I've never been to one I've heard the track noise...

And now... back to aviation by john smith
AvWeb has an interesting article on a recent NTSB report calling for the FAA to do more to improve pilot awareness of the effect of weather on flight. I would guess we are going to see a new round of aviation weather safety programs, if there is money in the budget for them.

Garmin 196 GPS - what do you guys think? by Mike W.
I know I am a couple of models behind as far as the portables go, I would LOVE to buy a 396 but just can't justify it right now. I rent from a flying club where every plane has a different combination of ADF/VOR/LORAN/GPS , and they all work differently, no manuals for the GPS or LORAN units (if...

Radio Range Question by Charles Wood
Hello All, Hoping some experts/old timers here might help me on a basic Radio Range question. I understand the principle of merging the A's and the N's to get the on-beam signal. I have been told that, while originally this merge created a continuous, uninterrupted tone except for the station...
