Russia-Iran Nuclear

Below is a story in the Los Angeles Times about a nuclear deal made between Russia and Iran on Tuesday. The deal would potentially give Iran access to "domestically produced fuel for its own nuclear reactors." I swear...Is Putin TRYING to begin a third world war?

Pilot Personalities

What do you guys think are some personality types that translate into being a good pilot? I just read the Strengthsfinder 2.0 book by Gallup and took the test. My five strengths were consistency, deliberate, discipline, context, and relator. What are your guys' thoughts?

New Technology In Part 141 Schools

There is so much more advanced technology in flight schools these days. For instance, Purdue University has a fleet of 15 <acronym title="Swissair">SR</acronym>-20's, which of course are equipped with G1000's, and even some with autopilot. This of course takes a lot of workload off of the student. B...

RE: Mid-Term Results Thread

In viewing these results, it is clear that the American people want a change in direction of this country. They have voted for a divided government. Now of course, the Republicans control both houses of Congress. They will end up with at least 52 seats in the Senate and the most House seats the part...

The first certification for the Rockwell Collins touch screen flight deck is set for later this year as an option for the Beechcraft King Air 200.

Custom And Border Patrol Pilot Stops

I came across this interesting 2013 article from the "Flying" website several days ago. It talked about how pilots are being stopped by Department of Homeland Security agents and being searched for smuggled items, such as weapons, drugs, and so forth. They called it the best aviation story of 2013. ...

Most Important Development Since The Wright Flyer

Since the development of the Wright Flyer in 1903, what do you all think has been the most important development in aviation since? I know its kind of a broad topic, but I'm writing a paper about it and would greatly appreciate your thoughts so I can start to narrow it down. Thanks.

Is it true that most professional pilots are male and over 40? I am currently in a university flight program and can see this gender spread in the make-up of my classes. I can count on my fingers how many woman I have seen in the program. I am wondering if this is seen in the professional field as w...
