Jeb on Motorcycle TV Spot

Hi Guys, I live in Staurt, FL and was watching this mornings local news channel. There was a short episode on speeding motor cycles giving the law enforcement trouble on the highways, some approaching speeds of 120 MPH. After the segment, the anchor said that the report was submitted by a Jeb Burnsi...

A CFII Remembers When.

I remember when: I could sign a students logbook on one line and not worry about being sued. I didn't have to know how to teach in about six different glass paneled aircraft layouts. TFR's weren't in existance and there was less restrictive airspace. I could fill out a simple 8710 recommendation pap...

Re: Spirit Airline Overhead Baggage Charge

That usually will eventually work in our capitalistic sociaty to eliminate outl...

Not many travelers had even heard of Spirit Airlines before the big commotion over their planned charge August 1st for passengers having to pay for overhead baggage. The airline operates about 32 Airbuses at very competitive low cost fares to destinations that many other airlines do not service. Eve...

Aviaton Safety....Jeb?

Just heard through the grapevine that Jeb will no longer be the editor of Aviation Safety? Wish him success with his future plans and will miss his presence in the magazine.

Re: The "Best" LSA for a Flying Club?

I am glad to continue with my report on flying and evaluating LSA. A flying buddy (Turbo Ed who had previoulsy flown Jack in his R44) made the flight to Sebring to evaluate the Flight Design CT. John Hurst, the sales rep for Sebring Aviation, provided us a great demo experience and I was impressed w...

Re: The "Best" LSA for a Flying Club?

This coming week I am getting a demo flight in a Flight Design CTLS along with a tour in Sebring, FL. After doing more research since my last post, this aircraft is moving into the shortlist of aircraft that might fit the needs of my intended purchase for a club or joint ownership aircraft. It has a...

The Next Hour by Collins

Hey, UCAP staff and Podcast audience. Just thought I would let you know that if you order the Next Hour through Sportys, you get a free bonus download of IFR Strategies for a limited time. I just put my order in after hearing about the good review by Amy and Dave on the podcast. Tom Gilmore

Re: The "Best" LSA for a Flying Club?

I would like to add my two cents into this thread as I just got a complete checkout in a SportCruiser LSA. I was so impressed with the SportCruiser that I have been considering getting a group of pilots together and purchasing one for a club. I'm a CFII&ME with over 12,000 hours logged that is 6...

Re: Podcasters Seem to be Disappearing?

I still miss 25 zulu even though NAFI live had seemed to take over the spot. You could count on podcasts on a regular basis and they were more broadbased with some great guests including Patty Wagstaff and umm.....excess the marketing, even myself. I miss the banter and format that is all but missin...
