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...

Mode C Altitude Q - no Kalisman Correction? (Barometric Pressuredeviation correction?) by GEG
Being a student pilot, I'm eating up all kinds of info. So I go through various instrument info, and then get to the "Mode C Transponder" that sends altitude info. Is that alt info built in? If so, is there no correction for barometric pressure changes? I don't know that it would be severe, but...

In-Flight Weather / GPS by Jonathan Goodish
I've searched the threads on Google, but given the emerging technologies involved, I'd be interested in any thoughts or recent experience that anyone can provide regarding the in-flight satellite weather in particular. We have a Cherokee with StrikeFinder (which works to avoid the big stuff) and a...

Stone fired, TSA closing up shop? by Hilton
Wow, I'm amazed, nothing in the NGs yet about this - perhaps I have a slow mail server? Hilton

Gear-Up at KFRG this AM by Marco Leon
The guy was calm and cool. I was impressed with his professionalism. Although, he was too nice and accomodating in my opinion. The Beech Sierra pilot opted to continue landing/touch-n-go on RWY 32 despite the winds being lined up directly down RWY 01 at 13 knots. He didn't want to "shut down"...

Air Force Form 181? by Yossarian
Where to find? I would like to do a practice instrument approach at KPMD (Palmdale) and I understand that this form is necessary, along with prior approval.

KLEW vs. KAUG by Andrew Gideon
Assuming no difficulties, I plan to do my commercial solo XC next week. I originally chose KAUG as the 250+ plus point. I essentially chose it from a list of places recommended by a local FBO, it being in the right direction that I can visit some family in between. But it is (according to...

Brampton Flying club funnies by K. Ari Krupnikov
I got a phone call today from a collection agency - for the first time in my life. The gentleman said I owed the Brampton, Ontario flying club CAN $16.00 and how would I like to settle that. I rented from them several times in 2003 when I visited a cousin who lives in Toronto. At first, I was...

Flying Club Features by Andy
What do you look for in a flying club? I am currently an officer in a flying club and we are having trouble recruiting new members. What would make you want to join a club? I feel that our prices are the main deterrent. Students (this is a school club) pay $60/hr for a C172 (dry), alumi pay...

Low flying commercial jets by Skywise
Bear with me as I'm not a pilot (someday?) and my experiences are based on flight sims. Also, I don't know if this is the best group to ask, but I've been lurking here for a couple months and you guys seem like a nice bunch. I live a couple miles due east of Los Alamitos Air Station (KSLI) in...

Rental Cancellation Policies by Greg Esres
I'm curious to know what sort of cancellation policies that flight schools and rental outfits have in place to make it highly probably that those who schedule airplanes will actually fly them. Our school doesn't charge people for not showing up, much less for cancelling very close to the proposed...

Checkout in a G1000 C182 by Greg Esres
Our flight school has received a C182 with a G1000. The checkout requirements are going to be 5 hours VFR and an additional 5.6 hours for IFR pilots. Oh, and about 6 hours of ground prior to that. Let's see, 10.6 hours * $210/hour = $2,226 for the flying, plus $180 for the ground, for a grand...

This is one for the books. by airman
Would extending daylight savings time give us more daylight? See Rep. Ed Markey's comments: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&e=5&u=/ap/20050407/ap_on_go_co/daylight_time&sid=84439559
