Good Landings Start At The Downwind Turn

Alon A2 Aircoupe

It’s a small 2 seat classic aircraft with…

Free Aviation Education

After the flight

Free you say?
I have to shell out big bucks for every flight for the airplane and the instructor. Yup you do, but just remember that education is all the time, in the plane or out.

The moment you put a booking onto the flight sheet for the next flight, is when…

Ground Training in Aviation

Knowledge is the cornerstone to being the best aviator you can be. Without reasonable knowledge about your flying education, your ability to operate successfully is compromised.

So how do you get educated? Transport Canada with the Private Pilot and the Commercial Pilot Flight Training programs require particular lengths of ground training outlined in each section…

Simulators in Civil Aviation

Simulators in Development, 2008 PFC Cirrus II Legacy Simulator that is re-certified Level 2

Simulators for aviation have been around a long time, certainly since I began using my home PC in 1989. I wanted my home PC to work flight sims since I was a new commercial pilot. I could see advantages to my…

It’s Just A Tin Plate

So you get into your airplane and your instructor says to you,

“Hey where is your Kneeboard, your desk? What are you going to write on and fly at the same time”?

“My what”?

“Kneeboard”

“I did not think I needed one of those.”

“Well look what’s on my knee! I am a professional, I…

Emergencies are as simple as a 4 legged chair

In aviation, many pilots dread the experience of an emergency in flight. In my early years I also disliked working on emergencies.

A Near Miss, Bitter Sweet?

Too Close to Call

Most aviators will have a near miss with another aircraft sooner or later in their career. This begs the question. Why do they happen? What can be done to prevent them in the future? My story comes during the hour building portion of my flight training, so naturally I was a…

The Office

April of 2022, I walked into my local flying club to go for a scheduled introductory flight.  This is a repeat of something that I did about 25 years earlier.  At 55 years old, I had set my goal of becoming a Commercial Pilot.
