I learned about flying from this by Ricky
Many years ago me and a group of friends from college took a canoe trip from the dam at Lake Whitney, Texas for several miles downstream back to where we rented the canoes from. On this pleasant trip I noted that the valley the Brazos River sits in is quite wide, certainly wide enough for a Cessna...

A BFR question by Dallas
Being a new pilot I don't know much about the BFR process. Over Xmas I was chatting with my pilot Brother-in-law about my new status as a pilot when he stated that he thought he could just go to the local FBO and rent an aircraft himself. I said yes and reminded him that he'd also need a medical...

FLL to MTH becomes MTH to MTH by [email protected]
So I gave up the idea of air taxi or instruction to get to MTH - based on trying to skirt rules (Something I don't want to do) and complication (schlepping luggage from commercial terminal to GA area) all with a 3 and 5 year old in tow. ;-) I ended up driving (ugh) and got stuck for 1.5 hours...

School massacres only meant to discredit the NRA by Bertie the Bunyip[_19_]
wrote in news:23e736d2-3743-4ab9-be9d-e3d15bf7ce36 @q77g2000hsh.googlegroups.com: It is amazing that so many people just do not understand that all the murderers who go on shooting rampages and kill students and others are doing it for the sole purpose of discrediting the...

About Bertie by Eeyore[_2_]
Local internet service providers may consider blocking an American from taking part in online discussions following one of the worst cases of "flaming" seen in this country. A mysterious figure calling himself "Bertie the Bunyip" has upset local Usenet newsgroups after a bizarre campaign that has...

The Five Million Dollar Flight Instructor by gatt[_2_]
"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A Minnesota flight instructor who notified his bosses of student Zacarias Moussaoui's suspicious behavior received a $5 million reward Thursday from the State Department, two government officials told CNN." The good guys won one. So, I wonder what kind airplanes he's...

CAP T182T Crash on Nov. 8 by gwengler
For whatever it's worth, I located the crash site from the coordinates given in the NTSB preliminary. The North Town One Departure from KVGT from where the airplane left calls for an overflight of the LAS VOR. The crash site is only half a mile from the direct course from LAS to L00, the...

When did turboprops come into vogue? by es330td
I was reading my new Flying magazine today and it had an article covering the decline of the 310/Seneca type light twins. It pointed out that the performance ground previously addressed by a twin piston is now covered by turbine powered aircraft. Being new to flying myself vs riding in a fast bus...

PLANE DOES 360 AT 20000 FT!!!! by A&E SUPERSTAR
Without warning or reports of turbulence, an Air Canada flight en route to Toronto dipped and rotated violently, on early Thursday morning, causing injuries and confusion among passengers and the crew. Strangely enough, flight experts are still unsure about what caused the accident. "What...

Medical and severe allergies by Robert M. Gary
Has anyone on this list had experience with getting a student his medical certificate if the student has severe allergies? This student has a really bad peanut alergy. If I eat a peanut butter sandwich before a lesson we could get hives and if he were to accidently eat a peanut he could go into...

Wood Laminations and Springback by Kyle Boatright
I'm working on the center section for a Hatz. The trailing edge of the center section is a recurved lamination that provides better access to the front cockpit. I've steamed and clamped the strips into a form, and they have taken on some of the curve, but when I unclamp 'em after they dry, I...

What is that whining sound aboard an inflight 747? by Alan[_4_]
Several times for the past few years, while on a transatlantic flight aboard a KLM 747-400, I begin to hear what sounds like a turbine spinning up, almost like an engine start, but higher pitch... Anyone know what it might be? Thanks

Mid-air in California by C J Campbell[_1_]
That fact that it is extremely rare probably does not make anyone involved feel any better about it. There were four souls lost in the collision between a 152 and a 172. AP and CNN say one of them was in a car in the ground and the rest on board the planes. UPI says two of the victims were on...
