St. Paul Airports by [email protected]
I am planning a visit to relatives in the St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Apple Valley area for Labor Day weekend. Any ideas on the best place to fly into? South St. Paul Municipal seems to be pretty centrally located, but opinions would be appreciated.

Pirep request by Jim Burns
I've always had the Wright Patterson Air Force Museum at Dayton, OH on my list of places to fly. We'd probably fly into KDAY and grab a crew car if available. Can any members of the group that are familiar with the museum give me a pirep? We'll only have one day to visit and would like to hit all...

when to run up and check the prop by Friendly Skies
I fly some high performance, complex singles like Saratogas, Lances, C182RG, C206, and the like. Typical flying days have multiple hops while seeing customers. On one hand I know pilots who say that you should do a full run up and prop check before every take off, because the checklist says to. ...

Being a Rotax 912s driver, and being as how the Rotax prefers premium automobile fuel, I have been searching for places that serve automobile gas that are accessable to airplanes. I'm not having much luck. So, does anyone know of a database that tracks availability of MOGAS for aviation...

TW Endorsement Completed by [email protected]
After about eight hours I completed the tailwheel endorsement today in the SD. But it certainly wasn't routine as the wind was coming out of the North at about 15kts gusting to about 20kts, and we were using Runway 7. I noticed a strong weathervaning tendency while taxiing, which required a lot...

SR-71 Blackbird Guru's Biography by Jay Honeck
A few months ago we were discussing Bill Fox, the remarkable fellow who donated all of the memorabilia and artwork for our incredible "Blackbird Suite."

Have you ever... by Jay Honeck
....refused to fly with someone you felt was not entirely safe? (With that person acting as PIC, not as a passenger in your own plane.) I had it happen earlier this year, for the first time, ever, and it felt, well, weird. I think I did the right thing, but it's hard to say. That funny...

Great Lakes Temperature Charts by Happy Dog
This is an excellent resource for people who fly single engine planes across the Great Lakes. I avoid straying out of gliding distance to shore until the temperature is into the sixties. Typical survival times for 60 degree water are in excess of six hours. http://www.coas****ch.msu.edu/ m
