    Border security helo down with fatalities 3/10/2024

    When I went to flight school early 80s probably 50% of landings were one autorotation or another…including low level low airspeed 100ft/40knots for the Scout track, day and NVG. Annual A part check rides also often included an Auto to the ground if the unit IP was checked out and approved.Of...

    Ferry flight lawsuit (mods please help with title)

    Sadly it works that way in in Tort 101 but not so much in the real worlds of trial lawyers…in my case an unknown maintenance company, an FBO who happened to be on my home field and never as much touched my Arrow, and Garmin all sued and not a single Garmin product in the aircraft. All had to...

    6 people presumed dead after helicopter crashes in California's Mojave Desert en route to Las Vegas area

    Lots of VFR only helicopter operators with just enough in the panel to get you home if you enter IMC by accident…flying IFR for most operators is not common even if equipped in my experience.

    Father of an Aspiring Female Pilot

    The fact that a father is trying to understand aviation and the process is ultimately a wonderful thing. It was easy for me and my daughter because I had a military background and even though I had a couple of GA aircraft I was clueless on the civilian side how certification worked. Anyone who...

    Why GA exclusive w umbrella policies?

    My PA 28R did an estimated 2.7 million in property damage dropping a 2000 ft transmission tower when the FAA employee flew into it with his daughter he had kidnapped. Plenty of other losses associated with that as well. None of us have enough insurance in certain situations.

    Why GA exclusive w umbrella policies?

    If you kill somebody or have an experience like I had with my leaseback the limits are a problem…particularly per person bodily injury limits on a GA policy.
