Southwest trip advice by flyboy909
My wife and I are planning a cross country excursion in our new (to us) Beech Sundowner in late June. We're based in the Northeast and our plan is to fly out to Manhatten Kansas to see family for a day, then on to the Grand Canyon area, and then to Denver before flying back. I am a 120 hour pilot...

A Real, Live Hallmark Xmas Ornament by Jay Honeck
80 degrees in Iowa? In April? If this is "global warming" I'm all for it. And if it's just an early spring, well, all the better! When we departed KIOW today, shortly after noon, the sun was warm, the winds light, and my 14-year-old son was in the right seat. Mary, having worked 25 of the last...

Is a 152 a good start? by AliR
Hi Everyone, I just saw an ad for an IFR 1978 152 with 5230 total hours, 370 SMOH for $30K. Is that a good first plane? I am wondering how much insurance will run for such an airplane (I am IFR with 230+ hours, working on Commercial ticket). How much is the operational cost of a 152?

Here we go again by Roger
Sorry if this shows up multiple times, but my (Charter's) news server has gone screwey again. We have some turf wars going on and it looks like the pilots may be the losers. First: we have a small airport with two runways 18/36 at 3000' X 75 and 06/24 at 3800' X 75. No scheduled flights or...

Getting used to the Arrow...and I like it...a lot! by Jack Allison
To date I have a whopping 8 hours in the Arrow. The last 2.9 were by far the most fun since the two flights involved maneuvers and landings (lots of landings). The more I get to fly N2104T, the more I like it. Things are becoming more and more comfortable and familiar. Still have lots to learn...

Compensation vs. Cost sharing? by Mark Morissette
Hey everyone.. Since I'm in Canada, and the rules are somewhat different here in many regards, I'm pretty sure this will remain a relevant question with a straightforward answer, none the less. Where exactly is the fine line between being "Compensated" for flying (contrary to a PPL) versus "Cost...

Headset -> Camcorder audio adapter by DK
Does anyone know of an adapter (that won't set me back big bucks) to be able to record what I hear in my headset onto the audio input of a video camera? I'd like to do some narration with a little better audio quality. I've seen the cel phone adapters that are out there, and they're nearly as...

Why we say HITS by jsmith
I read an article in a recent issue of BUSINESS/COMMERCIAL AVIATION. The article discusses the current electronics flight displays and the symbology used for course guidance. The article "explains" why we see the acryonm for Highway-In-The-Sky instead of the other reference, Tunnels-In-The-Sky. The...

AnywhereWX vs. Airgator NavAirWx by Jonathan Goodish
Thanks to all who replied to my in-flight weather questions. I think that I've narrowed my selection down to a PDA solution using the iPaq 4700, along with packages for XM weather an moving map from either Control Vision (AnywhereWx) or AirGator (NavAirWx). Detailed information on the web sites...

Garmin support (or lack thereof) by RNR
About one month ago, I emailed Garmin tech support about a problem that I was having updating the operating software in my 196. Fortunately, I also posted here and I received an immediate response which solved my problem. My concern is that I never got any response from Garmin. Is this typical? ...
