Thanks to the 300+ of you all that put your ink signature on the line and nominated me for the EAA Board of Directors. I'm on the ballot. Here's the reality. There will be 300 to 500 members at the meeting on the Saturday of Oshkosh week to elect the new directors. The EAA holds some 35,000...

Compensation vs. Cost sharing? by Mark Morissette
Hey everyone.. Since I'm in Canada, and the rules are somewhat different here in many regards, I'm pretty sure this will remain a relevant question with a straightforward answer, none the less. Where exactly is the fine line between being "Compensated" for flying (contrary to a PPL) versus "Cost...

Headset -> Camcorder audio adapter by DK
Does anyone know of an adapter (that won't set me back big bucks) to be able to record what I hear in my headset onto the audio input of a video camera? I'd like to do some narration with a little better audio quality. I've seen the cel phone adapters that are out there, and they're nearly as...

Why we say HITS by jsmith
I read an article in a recent issue of BUSINESS/COMMERCIAL AVIATION. The article discusses the current electronics flight displays and the symbology used for course guidance. The article "explains" why we see the acryonm for Highway-In-The-Sky instead of the other reference, Tunnels-In-The-Sky. The...

AnywhereWX vs. Airgator NavAirWx by Jonathan Goodish
Thanks to all who replied to my in-flight weather questions. I think that I've narrowed my selection down to a PDA solution using the iPaq 4700, along with packages for XM weather an moving map from either Control Vision (AnywhereWx) or AirGator (NavAirWx). Detailed information on the web sites...

Garmin support (or lack thereof) by RNR
About one month ago, I emailed Garmin tech support about a problem that I was having updating the operating software in my 196. Fortunately, I also posted here and I received an immediate response which solved my problem. My concern is that I never got any response from Garmin. Is this typical? ...

Garmin 430 user waypoints question by Michael 182
Is there a simple way to program the Garmin to handle in-flight route instructions such as : "Pass 10 miles N of XYZ at 10,000 ft" or "Continue inbound to ABC, then the 131 radial to DEF..." I can make user waypoints, but it seems a little slow and awkward, especially in hard IFR. Any...

AvGas in New Hampshire has reached $3.15/gallon :) by Cub Driver
First flight in three months! It's been a hard winter for grass strips in New Hampshire. My intentions were excellent, but I soon as I ran down the runway I knew I would not be staying in the pattern and practicing landings. Instead I toured the beaches down to Plum Island MA and returned by the...

Winds aloft = FD or FB? by Andrew Sarangan
FD used to be the abbreviation for winds aloft. Aviationweather.gov had a link called 'Winds/Temp (FD)'. Now it has been renamed to 'Winds/Temp (FB)'. What's the deal with FD vs FB?

Pretty cool flying day by ShawnD2112
Today was a better day than I'd thought it would be when I got up. Weather was worth going to the airport for so I pitched up there and then flew down to another little airport to have lunch with a mate of mine. He didn't show so I fell into conversation with a guy I'd met there last weekend. He...

Houston Area Pilots.. by Dave S
I would like to get the tentative word out about starting up a new event in the Houston area. I have noticed over the past years that local EAA chapters or flying clubs will host regular "pancake flyin's" or similar event. EAA Chapter 12 in Houston relocated itself to Ellington Field in the past...

Iowa City Airport in the News by John Galban
I read an article in the GA News last night about the Iowa City airport. Seems the airport struck a deal with Wal-Mart. They sold 22 acres of airport land to Wal-Mart for a Supercenter. The sale apparently pays off the airport's massive debt and allows airport revenue to now go towards airport...
