Here's evidence why the gov't assholes overreacted. by R.L.
It's come out that the C150 was squawking VFR. Why on F*g earth would a pilot on a supposed suicide-bomb mission bother to have his damned transponder on, much less squawk 1200 while penetrating the ADIZ? Doesn't make sense. I believe I heard that the 9/11 hijackers knew enough to turn...

Dangerous Cessna evacuates govt again by Paul kgyy
True to the rugged pioneer spirit of our great country, DC cowered for cover again as a Cessna violated the no-fly zone. Fighter jets were scrambled to deal with this imminent threat to the security of our nation.

Service Volumes of VOR's make no sense by Antoņio
I was at a CFI safety meeting today and the subject of VOR service volumes came up. The AIM describes the Standard High Service Volume as providing positive course guidance at varying distances depending on your altitude--40nm at 1000ft., 100nm at 14,500ft, 130nm at 45,000ft, etc. If the VOR is a...

Airport Database by Wizard of Draws
Does anyone know where I can lay my hands on an airport database with name, ID, lat/long and elevation? I've found two from separate sources that are close, but each is missing at least one element that I'd like to have and I don't relish the thought of trying to merge them into one. -- Jeff 'The...

Senate Bill S.786 could kill NWS internet weather products by FlyBoy
As a private pilot, I make frequent use of the NWS's Aviation Digital Data Service (see 1). I especially like their "Java Tools" graphic presentations of METAR, TAF, and AIR/SIGMET data. Senate Bill S. 786 (see 2) could well kill such NWS weather presentations in favor of private sector...

EAA Hops and Props - OSH by Jim Burns
Well, we survived. Didn't get drunk. Didn't fly any airplanes after our beer. Didn't crash our car on the way home. Only a data point of 1, but maybe pilots really can get close to airplanes while drinking alcohol without becoming statistics! :) Saturday evening my wife and I attended the EAA...

How safe is a new teenaged pilot? by anon
Our 17 year old son want to fly as a passenger with his 17 year old friend who is a brand new pilot. We think the boy is level-headed and mature. He grew up flying with his dad who is a retired test pilot for an aircraft manufacturer. These credentials not withstanding, I'm guessing that there...
