Old, bold Sport pilots by Cub Driver
In its email newsletter this morning, AOPA boasted that it would provide insurance to older pilots within certain limitations: no more than 4 pax, value less than $100,000, and -- get this! -- 3rd class medical every year! This would seem to rule out flying on a driver's license "medical." --...

Falling with the Falcon by Michael 182

Driver Licence Photo ID Catch-22 by [email protected]
A recent request from my local FBO for my ID prompted me to upgrade to the soon to be mandatory NJ digital photo license from my current paper license which expires in '06. ( I carry a separate State issued photo ID to satisfy the FAA requirement for photo ID). According to the NJ Motor Vehicle...

Ghost Ship by Jay Honeck
The silver plane sits lightly on the tarmac, gazing skyward at that cocky angle that makes taxiing a Stearman such a chore. It is clearly ready for flight. It's been sitting there for three days, as I write this. Full of gas, fabric freshly redone, immaculately painted -- all dressed up, with no...

Confession time (long) by Alan
In my 10+ years of flying, I've set several personal minimums for myself. One of them is to never be in the air with much less than half tanks of fuel. My Skylane burns 11.5gph like clockwork and holds 65 gallons total in both wings, 55 gallons useable. I usually fly for about 2.5 or 3 hours...

Newbie VOR question by Bruce W.1
I'm not a pilot but I have been reading up on VOR stations. And I'm looking for practical information. You can calculate your position by triangulating from two VOR stations. How many pilots do this? Or do most just fly between omnis? When you fly cross country do you just fly VOR to VOR, or do...

Any New York City pilots? by No Such User
Perhaps someone from the NYC area can identify for me a closed airport. It appeared quite large from the air, so it must have been someplace important at some time. It's marked as a closed airport on the New York terminal chart, on the 260 radial from JFK, near the OGY NDB. Does anyone know the...

Here we go again by Roger
We have some turf wars going on and it looks like the pilots may be the losers. First: we have a small airport with two runways 18/36 at 3000' X 75 and 06/24 at 3800' X 75. No scheduled flights or even charters at present. We are finally reaching the point where pilots are congregating around a...

FBO Purchase worth it ? by Toņo
Hi all, I have a friend that is about to purchase a small FBO. Now we all know that owning a small FBO is a labor of love at the very least. However, he is wondering if it is really financial suicide given the trends of today's laws, governmental regs, legislation, TSA, etc. His (my) question...

Owning vs. charter vs. airlines by Scott Jensen
There is usually a point where it is cheaper to do it yourself than have someone else do it for you. What I'm wondering is what would that point be when it comes to trans-world air travel. When does buying your own jet and employing your own pilots make economic sense than using an airline? ...

Interesting ELT fact by Ben Jackson
I just discovered that my ELT (Pointer Model 3000-10) has a microphone jack on it. Of course, in any accident where I would be able to take advantage of that I probably would have checked the ELT for proper operation and discovered it. Still, it's a good thing to be aware of. I'm surprised I'd...

AOPA Credit Card scam by George Patterson
AOPA warns that someone is trying the scam of spamming pilots saying that MBNA needs for them to verify their account info. These mails are not from MBNA. Do not click on the link. This, by the way, is true of every similar scam. No legitimate company will send you mail asking for account info by...
