      John Olson It's the Trike $375 class! Only question remains: will it pay them enough to make them happy?

    I'm a fellow northwesterner, with Art. There are areas here in the northwest with lots of fields, but, where Art and I mostly fly, anything resembling pasture and/or cropland is rare indeed. I find Art's notion about looking for new-growth forest ...

    Hi Arthur, That's good advice! I've always been taught that "Having an engine-out is no excuse for an accident". If you regularly fly over hostile terrain, a BRS is a must. Otherwise, fly high enough to glide to safety or go around. Many GA ...

    All of my 25 years of flying have been in NW Washington State where it is a fact of life that cross country flights will be over either water or forrested areas. The old POH admonition to always know where your next landing will be was drilled into ...

    (CNN) - The Federal Aviation Administration said Friday it will delay the closures of 149 federal-contract air traffic control towers until June 15. Last month, the FAA announced it would eliminate funding for these regional airport towers to help ...

    I wanted to let you know about some free training just made available. With the recent announcement that 149 airports are about to lose their control towers, we decided to share a few of our non-towered airport training videos. While all of us ...

    My personal experience - Have had 4 near mid airs at uncontrolled airports. All were because the other aircraft did not report/use a radio. Two on takeoff where they were taking off the wrong direction plus not using a radio. The other two were in ...

    Hi Paul, I mostly fly at a busy non-towered airport with university student pilots. I occasionally fly at a nearby towered airport with a fraction of the traffic. It seems like the tower would be more effective at the other airport but both ...

    We had 2 IMC threats on my way from FL to PA in our trike. One was the video I just posted: I was already warned at the previous airport control tower that a fog developed every morning in the mountains in the fall, and doesn't rise above 1,000 ft ...

    Thanks Doug! Yes, there is all kinds of room and storage space in the Monsoon which makes it a great trike for XC. I bought it through TBAS. Tell Barry to plan his next trip to Tennessee!

    Doug Boyle commented on Dave Schultz's wall: Dave, Congratulations on your new Monsoon! It sure is a good-looking machine. Barry Maggio flew his down from Connecticut over the weekend. You'll be amazed at all the "nooks and crannies" for storage in the Monsoon! Who was the previous owner?
