California to Argentina by Paul Millner
Howdy, A couple of us are planning on flying my turbo Cardinal RG from California to Argentina next October... my buddy was born there (Argentinian British) and is returning for a family reunion. I've flown about 3,500 hours, in the US, Canada, and Mexico, but never further south. There's quite...

Underwater egress by Duane MacInnis
I just did the "Dunk-U" course yesterday. www.dunk-you.com This was the most interesting thing I have done in a long time. Gives a whole new perspective to flying over water. Required by my pals at www.angelflight.ca Rule #1 -- Wear your life...

Overweight takeoff / flight by Koopas Ly
Howdy again, After reading NTSB reports that attribute the cause of the accident to exceeding the airplane's maximum takeoff weight, I began wondering about the effects of an overweight takeoff within C.G. limits. Specifically, what would I have to do differently when flying an airplane that's...

New restaurant at KSNS? by Ross Oliver
I seem to remember seeing a notice on one of the local airport bulletin boards that the restaurant in the Salinas (KSNS) airport terminal building is open again. Is this accurate? Anyone try it yet? Happy landings, Ross Oliver

FAA Plane Certfication by Darkwing Duck
I read somewhere that the Symphony 4 cost over $25 million to certify! Is that really how much it costs for companys like Cirrus, Lancair etc.?

New Aviation Terminology by DeltaDeltaDelta
Recently I dug up an article from some magazine concerning the Tenerife accident when two 747s collided due to language miscomprehension by one of the pilots. Later in the text, the author wrote that ICAO was working on a new set of aviation terminology that is supposed to be an...

Question for Pressurised Baron pilots by DeltaDeltaDelta
I've been trying to find some info on this thing for quite a while now. I've been to Raytheon's site and found specs for the normal Baron only. If some of you do own the P version, could you please tell me what engines do they have? Are they the regular IO-550s or are they turbocharged? And what...

Diamond DA40-180 by lance smith
I've been flying a Diamond Star DA40-180 for a few months now and wanted to post my thoughts on it. I transitioned from a 172 to the DA40 and my FOB rents out both for about the same price. However the DA40 is much nicer: faster, more room, standard fancy electronics, and definitely sexier (sorry...

Headsets by pinkflyer
I've been toying with the idea of getting my headsets repainted in that harlequin paint you see on cars. You'd know instamatically what I'm talking about if you've seen those cars that change colour. Any...

"Four flights Thursday. ...Inform Press. ...Home by Christmas." by Don Tuite
Copied with permission from rec.arts.books: The contraption and the bicycle makers four times aloft at Kittyhawk, among astonished gulls unused to share their mastery of the wind; the air sundered briefly, the most a minute; before gravity resumed dominion over canvas, wood and wire.

Blimp goes down by G.R. Patterson III

NDB's in the UK by Harvey
There is a CAA document which lists the range of a small number of the NDBs in the UK, along with the VORs. But most of the NDBs on the 1:500,000 UK map are just not in that list at all. It appears that some are not working at all, or of *very* short range. I tried to use two close by recently...

Certified to Experimental? by Jeff Franks
Just wondering. Is it possible (read practical) to take a certified aircraft (C172 for example) and have it "demoted" to an Experimental? Seems there are LOTS of great options out there for non-certified flight instruments (EFIS's and such) available for not much more than a song and a dance, but...

PCL for helicopters question by Slav Inger
Hi all, Sorry haven't been participating much lately, "free time" has become just a figure of speech for me lately. Quick question: I'm not a helicopter pilot, so I don't have any first-hand experience with this. A family member is an electrician and works at a hospital where they're thinking of...

ICom A-5 Question - Battery Level Indicator by Harry Gordon
Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone. Hope you didn't over eat like I did :-( or :-) depending on your perspective. A month or so ago, I purchased the ICom A-5. It came with the rechargeable battery. I have read a lot about that battery so I know that it leaves some to be desired. After I charged...

Another article by Roger Long
I'm in danger of becoming a regular contributor to "Aviation Safety". My second article has just gone to press. It answers these burning questions: 1) Why is nose wheel shimmy usually reported by only two or three club members and no one else is having a problem? 2) How can you grease a...

Va and negative g's & fun non-acrobatic maneuvers by Koopas Ly
Me again, Va seems to be only intended to protect against excessive positive load factors. What about negative g's? Can I find a Va for negative design load factors (-1.52 g) for the C172SP anywhere? Reason I am asking is that I want to try the "floating pencil" trick next time I fly but I...

flying into the new Air and Space Museum by Margy Natalie
I've done a bit of research on where to put your plane if you are flying in. You can't taxi to the museum, so that is right out. Piedmont Hawthorne quoted me $10.96 for landing and $20 a day for parking, with NO transport to the museum. They did offer me a number for Enterprise rent a car and...
