Make-a-wish plane painted in Wilmington

Dassault Falcon Jet took a decidedly hands-on approach in its effort to create an eye-catching aircraft paint scheme to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Don't try this yourself .......

A friend forwarded me a set of pictures of four T6 Harvard aircraft from The Flying Lions Aerobatic Team from South Africa,water-skiing across the Klipdrift Dam near Johannesburg, South Africa. I couldn't find the original pictures (the team's homepage doesn't have them; it appears they are now under different sponsorship), but a quick google turn up lots of pictures and a video.

AOPA offers online course for passengers

Pre-flight flight for passengers

Many of the fundamentals of flying come naturally to you, especially if you've been flying for more than a few years. But passengers may have a different view. If they are new to general aviation, they may be a bit nervous, or even anxious about how those "small planes" work. Help ease their fears a bit by showing them the Pinch Hitter online course from the Air Safety Institute. They’ll learn everything from aerodynamics to navigation and emergency procedures. And it could provide the spark they need to begin their own training.

Summer Weather HOT tips from AOPA

Summer Weather

Summer can be great for flying, whether in search of the elusive $100 hamburger, or to just spend some quality time aloft. On the flip side: The sweltering heat that sometimes accompanies summer weather can throw a nasty wrench in the works by creating severe thunderstorms, high density altitudes, and visibility-reducing haze. Print safety tips, brush up on your weather knowledge, and test your newly acquired skills with ASI’s award-winning courses.
