Sully retires by Kingfish
I just read that Capt. Sullenberger is retiring at the age of 59. I don't blame him, as all the BS airline pilots have to endure probably makes the job not so much fun now. He could stick around until he's 65 but his decision was probably helped by the $3.2M deal he signed for two books. Good for...

Vertical stabilizers by Dallas
Speaking of below 250 knot aircraft, does it really matter much what shape they make the vertical stabilizer? They seem to come in all kinds of shapes... de Havilland favored elliptical, Cessna favors a swept back trapezoid, Mooney swept forward... etc. Aerodynamically speaking, what difference...

Some good news to my old friends here at rec.aviation by Jay Honeck[_2_]
Does this mean that your hotel in Iowa is closing, or are you going to be operating two separate hotels, one in Iowa and one in Texas? Although we seriously considered keeping both hotels, the distance (1,240 miles) apart is just too great. Therefore, it is for sale. -- Jay Honeck Iowa...

ASDE-X false alerts by [email protected]
WTF? False targets… are a clear part of a radar system,” said FAA official Joseph Davies. “It comes with the territory.” Yeah, until he is behind the scope having a coronary when the target shows up in front of a 747 he cleared for take off. These people are so out of touch.... Amazing...

Looking for some marketing feedback on a new pilot relief product by Mark
I've come up with what may become a new pilot relief product. It's not for sale yet, but I'm at the point where I'm trying to get some market feedback to see if there is enough interest to invest further. I've been using prototypes in my glider this past year with excellent success. ThePeePal is...

Possible "deliberate" plane crash by Ricky
As our simulator captain has provided a link to, a plane crashed into a building just an hour south of my home in Waco, TX. What I want to say about this is that nobody knows whether or not this crash was "deliberate" or not and probably won't for a long time. To say otherwise is simply jumping to...

Frontline documentary on the problems with regionals by Mxsmanic
An interesting PBS Frontline documentary on how the business models of the major airlines are throwing away safety by subcontracting flights to regionals (without telling passengers, and without reducing ticket prices). http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/flyingcheap/view/
