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

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...

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...
