Crossing Mt. Shasta / Siskiyous by rps

It sucks, but which way? by Hilton
Hi, Just to throw in a little humor here as the 'lift' thread heats up: Assume you're gliding in a Piper Warrior or Archer doing 80 knots in no wind conditions with the engine at idle. If you try open that little air vent on the pilot's left, it is forcibly sucked outwards. Makes sense until...

My partner and I went up in the Mooney this AM to take advantage of the unusual overcast at MHR. Tower was reporting around 1,000 overcast with vis around 3. We took off from our little foothills airport (non-tower) right behind a Luscome who seemed to depart right into the soup. In the 2 hours it...

Katrina fall-out by Jay Honeck
I wonder if the insurance companies (and the federal government) will FINALLY wake up to the fact that building permanent structures below sea-level in a hurricane zone is folly? Just in the last couple of years (after paying out billions to re-build homes along the Mississippi -- again) these two...

Top Gun - The Sequel The Top Gun logo is a Trademark of the Paramount Pictures Corporation If you asked 10 pilots to name their favorite movie, all 10 of them would say "Top Gun".* Maybe it's because "We have the need. The need for speed"; or because we have all had the thought of requesting the...

OT - Search engine question by Jay Honeck
Go to Yahoo and type in "Iowa City Airport". The first choice that comes up is "Eastern Iowa Airport" -- the Cedar Rapids, IA airport! How do they *do* that? It doesn't appear to be a paid advertisement, since it appears along with the rest of the search results. This kind of stuff drives me...

I saw a UFO by Rob
Unidentified by me, anyway. Last Sunday a group of friends from work went down to Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ to make tandem jumps. Although I took my first jump last time the group went down there, and boy is it a hoot, I didn't jump this time. I did however round up a couple of friends to fly...

fuel subsidies for Angle Flight pilots by sashley
Angel Flight America is trying to raise $2 million to offset the cost of fuel. Does anyone know how they propose to subsidize Angel Flight missions? The problem, of course, is the rule regarding sharing expenses. I suppose that if an Angel Flight pilot flies two passengers, Angel Flight could pay...

AOPA credit card for the wife? by Robert M. Gary
My wife doesn't fly but I thought maybe I'd get her to apply for the AOPA credit card. I've already exceeded my max rebate for the year. I wonder if it makes a difference that she's never touched the controls of an airplane nor does she care to. :) -Robert

Starting new C172s by navghtivs
I have flown it 6~7 times now, and still find starting the engine of new Cessna 172S quite tricky, and often I have to try two or three times to start it. I never had problem in older C172s. So what's the trick, guys? How much throttle (1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 inch) do you open? How fast do you advance...

Landing Critique by Marco Leon
See video of a hard(ish) landing at: http://www.flightlevel350.com/viewer.php?id=4137 Did this guy land a bit short of the runway or was his glidepath a bit too shallow? Something else? It's hard to tell from the video but maybe some PA-32 drivers can give some insight. Or maybe someone fluent...
