Ignition switch, what happen when Left or Right is selected by Martin B
Hello, Here is my question: On regular aircrafts, like C150, C172, PA28, when we perform the magneto check where we select Left, than Right, while looking for RPM drop... what is the switch doing? When we select Left or Right, do we short that particular magneto or are we shorting the other one?

PIREP: Chevy American Revolution 400, Richmond, VA by John T
I happened to be in the office of a co-worker when he mentioned he had a couple extra tickets to this year's Chevrolet American Revolution 400 NASCAR race in Richmond, VA. Long story short: I saw an excuse to go flying while introducing my teenage son to professional auto racing. We met in...

Why turbo normalizer? by Robert M. Gary
This started on a Mooney list. I cannot for the life of me (and an engineering degree) figure out why a turbo normalizer would be any easier on an engine than a regular turbo. Is this just marketing crap from the turbo normalizer people? Turbo'd engines cost more to run because of the increased...

Could training at a towered airport have prevented the ADIZ bust by airman
The CNN pilot-reporter, Miles O'Brien, made a good point. These guys took off from an uncontrolled airfield, implying that they were not adept with ordinary ATC as would pilots be who were trained or who are resident at a Class D or C towered field. I remember how difficult it was to train at...

What's the narrowest runway you've ever used? At what runway width are you comfortable? Among other things, I had an interesting experience yesterday with a runway that was far narrower than any I'd used before... We had gone to Dallas for Mother's day, and returned to Atlanta yesterday in my...

listening to ATC on United Airlines by Bucky
I'm not a pilot, just your typical passenger. I don't fly United often, so I just discovered that they put the ATC on the inflight audio. I was totally fascinated and want to learn some more. Is there a website that has some basic ATC protocols? Not some huge reference manual, just the common...
