Of parachutes and things by ShawnD2112
Was hoping to get a bit of expertise here. I'm in the market for an emergency bailout chute for flying in my Pitts S-1D. The top US contenders seem to be National and Softie but with no experience in the field, and parachutes not exactly being the kind of object you can try on for size in the...

The frustrating economics of aviation by C J Campbell
Okay, we have gone 'round and 'round about why new airplanes cost so much: low demand, liability, inefficient manufacturing, regulatory requirements, etc. It is so daunting that Toyota appears to have scrapped its GA project. Perhaps one reason demand is so low is because of the cost of becoming...

Destruction due to turbulence when below Va - how? by Roger Long
It's not complete protection, it just loads the odds a bit more in your favor. The aircraft is as likely to be broken by a panicked response by the pilot or a botched attempt to recover from an unusual attitude and being at Va will reduce that probability significantly. -- Roger Long
