ASA On Top bug? by Tim Bengtson
I have been having a problem with ASA On Top that has been driving me nuts. A short drive, admittedly... Anyway, the compass dial around the ADF doesn't adjust. That is, you can turn the knob, and the dial will start to move, but it soon snaps back to its original location. Even this would be...

Surface to Air Missile threat by PlanetJ

You do understand what a successful strike with a surface-to-air missile would do, don't you? Not only would it kill the 100+ people who happened to be on the targeted airliner, it...

Precession of 10 degrees in 10 minutes too much? by Jay Moreland
I need to find out if there is an official maximum amount of precession for a Directional Gyro. My aircraft precesses 10 degrees in 10 minutes during mostly straight and level flight with only a few shallow banks. One avionics tech told me that it depends on the gyro manufacturer as to what is...

Another difference between the US and Canada. by Roger Halstead
I had a friend ask me today how I'd cancel a flight plane that I had never activated. I gave the usual answer...If I never activated it, I don't need to cancel it. If I haven't activated it past the closing time it gets dropped. Canceling one that has been activated and flown is *usually* not a...

GPS SUbstitute for DME or ADF by S. Ramirez
Someone in another forum said that it's okay to substitute certified GPS for DME or ADF on an approach plate that depicts FAFs or intersecting points using DME or ADF. I asked that person to back it up with a reference from an official document like the FARs, AIM or something that the FAA puts...
