Helping Pilots with Disabilities - AV84all.org

Two groups have banded together for a common goal. EAA Chapter 1083 and John Robinson, the founder of AV84all.org, are building a Zenith CH 750 Cruzer in Salisbury, North Carolina.

Airspace 101 - Clayviation.com

It's easy to look up to the sky and see a bunch of nothing. I'm always in wonder when there are lots of unusual clouds because it gives great dimension to an otherwise endless blue void. On the ground, we draw imaginary lines all over the land, making states, counties, cities, and a multitude of other borders.

New Year's Day Flight to Gladwin, MI - Fly Girl Journal

According to our local Channel 8 Meteorologist Bill Steffen, the Grand Rapids area had about half of the normal average total possible sunshine in December. Now given the fact that December is typically our cloudiest month, that is pretty grim. Our total sunshine amounted to roughly 9%. According to Bill, that was only about 25 hours of sunshine for the entire month! I'm not trying to be a negative-Nancy or anything, but fact is, December was 91% gray, gloomy, cloudy, snowy, icy,frozen, cold, wet, sloppy, (and many other adjectives that are not family friendly.) Just not very conducive to roaring around in an airplane.

Michigan Fall Splendor - Fly Girl Journal

Yesterday, we took yet another flight to the Lake Michigan shore to see if the colors had popped any further since last week's flight to Holland. Although, very pretty, the color near Lake Michigan still wasn't nearly as brilliant as the inland areas of West Michigan. Upon our return, we flew around the local area for a bit and took in some nice views of colorful downtown Hastings from above.

A Closer Look At Engine Failure In A Cessna - ClayViation

One of the most common fears that people have about flying is the engine quitting. It's a reasonable concern. After all, when a car's engine quits, you stop driving, so it would make sense that when an airplane's engine quits, you stop flying. While there is no pilot who embraces and looks forward to the thought of engine failure, the airplane will still fly without an engine.

Help the CAF Honor the WASP - Restore a WWII Warbird! - Commemorative Air Force

Help the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) restore the airplane that gave women wings, and inspire young people with the story of America's first female military pilots.

What Pilots Need To Know About Drones - ClayViation

The FAA estimates 7 million drones to be buzzing around in the airspace system by 2020. As a pilot, there are understandable concerns about what it means to have so many people sharing the same airspace. Having functioned as both an airplane pilot and a drone pilot, I've gained some takeaways from both sides that help dovetail the airspace use a little better. Whether you embrace these additions to the sky or not, let's look at some of the ways that drone flight can affect you as an airplane pilot.

Exploring The 'Thumb', Lexington, MI - Fly Girl Journal

Saturday, October 8, Randy and I decided to head to the eastern side of Michigan to explore an area neither of us knew much about. On the shores of Lake Huron, right in the middle of Michigan's "thumb", lies the quaint little harbor town of Lexington.

How To Read A Terminal Area Forecast - ClayViation

It's not always too difficult to tell if the weather is good enough to fly - in the moment. Looking up to a clear blue windless sky is a pretty good sign. The big question with weather is often "what's going to happen next?" On a recent flight to Nashville, Tennessee, my initial plan was to fly up in the morning on a Saturday and return the same evening. As the day approached, I made the call to fly up Friday night and return midday Saturday. Why? Because of the weather forecast.

Fun Flight Blog - Litchfield, IL and Cuba, MO - Fly Girl Journal

Finally! July 10th arrived! It was a picture perfect day for our launch and we left, wheels up at about 11:30AM local time. Our first stop was Litchfield, IL, right on Route 66, where we dined at the Aristan Cafe, thought to be the oldest on the route. The cafe was founded by Pete Adam, a Greek immigrant, in Carlinville, IL in 1924 and relocated to Route 66 in 1929. It is also on the National Registry.
