In filling out my FAA form for my USA pilot's certificate, I note that they have spaces for not only total hours and number of flights but also cross-country flight time. The only problem is that the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) do not appear to define cross-country flying as it applies to...

I've been informed that Czech does no allow ultralight tow planes. Are you aware if this is the case in any other countries? We are currently considering a SAMBA as a tow plane for our club in South Africa.

spins and vintage gliders by John Firth
In the early 60 s , a kind member at MASA more or less gave me carte blanche to fly his unmodifed LK 10 when ever I wanted; as I was BGA trained and spin aware, I expored it's stall behavior; it dropped a wing so viciously that I did not let it autorotate. It had Clark Y section and no washout as...

Question for any commericial airline rules experts out there by Ted Wagner
I took the last half hour to read all the FARs, FAAs, PDQs and XYZs, and I can't find where they say that I can't wear my headphones when the airplane is coming in for landing. (And no, I'm not flying the airplane!) I don't use my headphones for listening to anything but silence; they're the Bose...
