Cool attitude indicator by Jay Honeck
Everyone has seen those "Laser Levels" advertised on TV. I own one, and (although it's relatively useless) it's very cool. Wouldn't it be slick to have a gyro-stabilized thin red line projected onto your panel, graphically displaying the actual horizon? Talk about situational awareness in the...

My first aerobatic lesson by Marco Rispoli
This was so much fun I decided to share the story ... Marco walks to the aerobatic instructor and introduces himself. Marco is already out of his mind with terror. Rationality left the premises a long time ago. The instructor has fangs and horns and a red tail and smells of ozone and sulfur. He...

Comanche accident averted last evening by [email protected]
Just another day of flying in the bay area yesterday - or so I thought. It was past 7:45 pm. Beautiful evening sunset. Winds [email protected] No gusts. No turbulence. I was on my third touch and go. A Comanche was inbound and cleared to land on RWY31. I was cleared for the option (number two) and requested...

AOPA shutting down their message board by OtisWinslow
They announced they were shutting it down on Monday. Supposedly it's going to reopen in about "4 to 6" weeks. In the mean time they say they're going to "upgrade" it but they haven't decided what software because their lawyers are looking at ways to tighten up the rules and protect them. This came...

Failure #10 by Capt.Doug
I was heading down island on Easter Sunday to do a little bone fishing, cruising at 11,500' in a Navajo Chieftain with a 20 knot tailwind, just me and some calypso music on the AM radio (ADF for you student pilots). The autopilot was doing a fine job. Then the right engine hiccupped. It was a small...

Sun N Fun Pireps? by Jay Honeck

Cigarette Lighter Adapter- Cessna 172 by TF
I attempted to plug in my portable GPS unit into a 2003 172 and ... I couldn't. The "standard" cigarette adapter has been replaced with a smaller something. I didn't have time to look too closely as to what the new outlet is. The GPS was just a backup and I was just going locally . Question....

Orlando Class Bravo by Ehvee8or
Greetings all, I'm a low-time private pilot in the Tampa Bay area, planning a trip this weekend over to Cape Canaveral (KTIX - Spaceport Regional) to see the shuttle sitting on the pad. I've flown through Tampa Class Bravo before, and learned that approach control sends VFR traffic flying east to...

Reading back altimeter settings? by Paul Tomblin
Does anybody have a good handle on when ATC wants you to read back altimeter settings? On a single IFR flight on Tuesday, I encountered several controllers who I'd check in with, and they'd give me an altimeter setting, and that would be it, and 2 (both in Canada, BTW) whom when I didn't read back...

Beech Sundowner/Sierra PIREP wanted by Don Byrer
Saw an interesting article in Private Pilot mag about the Sierra. Roomy & stable....sounds like my kind of plane. Prices look decent; and the FG Sundowner even cheaper (and more insurable for a 150-hour pilot than the RG Sierra) Looking for something that can handle two large adults + baggage...

Citation by Hilton
Hi, Any (good) books on Citation I/II systems and/or how to fly it? Anyone selling the 'manual'? Any other recommendations appreciated. I'm *thinking* about doing a type-rating sometime during the next 12-18 months, and figured I could start looking at the plane now. BTW: I have the King's and...

What it's all about by Jay Honeck
Yesterday was one of those glorious early spring days that can only happen in the Midwest. The air was crisp and dry, so that when you stood in the sun you were warm, but a step into the shade required a sweater. The wind sock was just flopping around, the horizon was razor sharp, and the pattern...

No more partial checkrides. :( by Robert M. Gary
I just called a local examiner to ask what will happen if the weather isn't good enough to fly with my student tomorrow. He said that the Sacramento FSDO recently told him that he is not allowed to begin a checkride (i.e. do the oral) unless he believes there is a high probability of finishing the...
