Fly-in B&B for new years by Nick Kliewer
I'd love to fly to a B&B (preferably within a six-hour C172 flight of Dallas) for new years. Anyone know of any good places or resources for finding near-airport B&Bs? One with an instrument approach would be ideal (depending on WX) but maybe not necessary. Thanks! -Nick To reply by email --...

Chelton EFIS: any PIREPS? by Kai Glaesner
Hello community, after downloading several *.pdf's from the Chelton side (being inspired by AOPA's Commander ;-) and browsing thru them, it seems that there are some features in this box that set it apart from the competition, e.g. terrain display, "higway-in-the-sky" pointers, etc. Are there any...

Needed: comparison of popular Aviation GPS units, Garmin, Lowrance, AvMap, etc. by C. Osbourne
Maybe another way to describe what I'm looking for, is a Consumer Report's type of grid that shows features of each of the GPS's and ranks them as "good, better, and best" Anyone know of comparative review of several GPS's in one place? Thanks for answering here.

Outside sat his aircraft all ready to run, And the old man walked out to that P-51. "Bad weather's...

Delays getting into Newark International? Go VFR. by Peter R.
Heard this interesting series of exchanges today while flying down to Teterboro, NJ. Weather in the NY area was VFR, but I was IFR. For some reason, arrivals into Newark International were being stacked up in holds despite the VFR weather. ATC: Continental XXX, have your hold instructions for...

Intersting tidbit about the Miami seaplane crash and fuel reserves by xyzzy
from: http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/12/19/miami.crash.ap/ "One of its airplanes was hijacked to Cuba in 1974. Since then, the company has had a policy of not carrying enough fuel to reach Havana." Now Havana is not that far from Miami. I have a hard time believing they would be within legal IFR (or...

Unclear Clearance by Mitty
OK, just to distract you guys from "IFR with a VFR GPS" --- Flying into Grand Marais MN last week (KCKC) I was out maybe 30 miles at 7000 and got "Cleared for the approach, maintain 4000 until established. Contact advisory ... " The reason for the early clearance was, I think, that I was at the...

Crash near Miami, FL by tscottme
A Chalks Airways Grumman Mallard (Turbine Mallard) crashed during takeoff near Miami, FL today. Watching TV coverage of the aftermatch it's certain two things will happen after such an event. The TV networks will report a fiery explosion before the crash and Mary Shiavo will be on-air...

GPS and old-fashioned thinking? by G Farris
With all these questions about how to integrate GPS into our everyday operations, I'm tempted to believe we have allowed the advent of this wonderful new technology to send our thinking back to the dark ages! We want GPS to simply replace everything else - then all that "legacy" stuff just...

FAA to enforce aircraft registration regulations by Paul kgyy
This has been on the news lately, but I've been wondering why, since the FAA has been crying about budget constraints. But it just occurred to me that the real reason they want the address file correct is to collect user charges.

Low battery voltage level by markp
Hi All, I'm looking for recommendations for a low battery warning voltage level. I was going to use 12.8V - is this liable to be triggered by noise/dips in the bus voltage? My guess is when heaters or motors kick in there could be a momentary drop due to high current that could trigger my low...

GPS UPSAT/Garmin/Jeppesen subscribers by [email protected]
Just found out that the 2MB card we've all been using to update our GX 55, 60's etc will *not* work for the next data update. Jepp (to its credit) will *give* you a new 4mb card in return for your old one, but *act fast* since they are overwhelmed with requests and the deadline is fast approaching.

Primary nav source by Wizard of Draws
The recent GPS/IFR discussions here got me to thinking. I generally fly an Arrow, equipped with a Garmin 430, 2 VORs, Loran, my handheld GPS, my sectionals, low enroute charts, and since I got my IFR ticket, I try to fly under ATC control as often as possible to keep my comm skills up. On cross...

Should I get back into flying (long) by john h
I have around 1200 hours, a commercial MEL, IFR and private Glider certificates. I have not flown seriously since 1973. I had a brief period in 1980 when I earned a glider rating and again in 1991/92 when I joined a glider club and was a tow pilot. In 2002 I helped a local FBO on weekends...

ATC question about helicopter routes by [email protected]
I've been flying on helicopetr routes over NYC for years now with terrific controllers everywhere but got hung up with a controller last week and I need help understanding his arguments for refusing me access. He said I'm not a helicopter so I cannot fly a helicopter route when it 'may' interfere...

Flying through known or forecast icing by John Doe
Ok, I know this is one of those "it depends" answers, but I'm curious as to what folks are willing to do in the winter time. Assumptions: Single engine piston aircraft with NO de-icing equipment. Situation: It's wintertime. You want to fly XC and there are midlevel clouds in the
