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

Why are airplanes white? by gatt
Here in Oregon, where there is often white overcast and snow in the mountains in the winter, there's a lot of white. It seems to me that painting your aircraft white is akin to camoflage. Wouldn't it be better if airplanes were missile red, cub yellow, construction orange or some...

I am trying to pick a day to visit Oshkosh. My plan is to fly up in the morning and return that evening. I've been to Oshkosh many times but never flown in. I have read the NOTAMs and understand the arrival procedures, but need some help with logistics questions. I understand the field is...

Two fine points of FAR interpretation by Dave Russell
A friend of mine is curious: 1. If a runway is closed by NOTAM at a non-towered airport, does that mean that the adjacent *taxiway* can't be used to legally take-off and land? (I know the insurance company would have an opinion about this, also, but let's ignore that aspect for the moment.) 2....

Time for certificate issuance? by Jeremy Lew
I passed my IA checkride on April 17th, and still haven't received my newfangled plastic certificate. The FAA airmen database lists the rating, so I know they're aware of it. The DE gave me a temporary certificate which expires in less than a month, what should I do assuming it doesn't come soon?...

Stiffed on Ebay by Jay Honeck
I've only sold two items on Ebay (I've bought a lot, though), so I'm really surprised (and saddened) to report that I've run into an avionics buyer who simply won't pay for the item he won. I listed our old Narco AT 50 transponder (which, BTW, we replaced with a Garmin GTX-327 -- a truly great...

things to carry by Gary Drescher
A pilot crashed on a NH mountain in fog yesterday. He survived, but his 17-year-old son did not. Rescuers were able to find him in part because he was blowing a whistle. I just added one to my flight bag. (http://makeashorterlink.com/?J3AA12BB8) --Gary

Hi all: I have a question about cost splitting for a flight by me, with only a private certificate (in a rented plane).
