Where to rent in Seattle? by 'Vejita' S. Cousin
Howdy. I'm a PP-ASEL VFR only renter living in Seattle. I go to the UW and live in Wallingford. Due to school I haven't been up in 6mo. I finally got a break (well lighter load) and the weather is nice; but it turns out that the place I use rent from no longer has rentals (Aeroflight a BFI). I...

Airbus 380 weight by Corky Scott
The Airbus 380 takeoff weight is pegged at 1,235,000 lbs. For comparison purposes, the C5A has a maximum takeoff weight of 769,000 lbs. The maximum landing weight listed for the AB 380 is 891,000 lbs., which is more than the maximum takeoff weight of the C5A. So perhaps it is the case that the...

Flying into Talladega for a race (KASN) by bdl
Cup cars are LOUD. Bring your noise cancelling headphones from the plane. I use our Lightspeed headphones and a portable intercom plugged into the scanner to make things bearable. Thanks, Ron, yeah I knew that from being at some Indy Car races as well. Did the same thing, it was nice too...

For those of you flying in the SF Bay Area: I was wondering about the logistics of doing a bay tour during the KFOG Kaboom fireworks show on the evening of May 21st. I would assume that there will be a TFR around the actual show, which is going on just south of the San Francisco side of the Bay...

Entry Level Headsets by Mark Morissette
Currently I'm paying $5/Hr rental on David Clark's while flying out of my FBO. This was supposed to be a "temporary" charge for students there (like myself) while the new headsets were paid for. Yes, they upgraded last year from much lesser headsets, which were not really up to the rigours of...
