    Chapter 186 cancelled its Young Eagles Rally today. Probably a prudent decision. Thursday's VMC and IMC club meetings went on as scheduled.

    Interesting history, I had to look it up. From what I read, the tail redesign was not just Mooney marketing. They marketed the plane as a trainer and therefore, it needed to be able to spin. The...

    OK. Let's see how it works out. Nothing is perfect, but the two hubs may be an improvement when trying to catch a ride.

    I made one up for a previous CAP unit out of corrugated metal. If the Wing has a glider, that presents another option. Trailer it to where you want the target to be and don't attach the wings. If you...

    Bill, you need to travel more. Our Uncle Sam sent me several places that topped that (with the note that most thermometers top out at 40C). Maybe you are just too used to the low humidity in CO,...

    The Garmin 1000 suite does a lot of great stuff and is real value added for the Civil Air Patrol 182s and 206s. Our 172s, however, I think should be kept round dial as a training platform. Teach the...

    Unless someone can explain to me why this system exists in a form that can be so easily exploited, then I am with Dave on this.

    The reality is that we don't have AN Radio legs, NDBs in the lower 48 are almost unheard of and VORs are not being replaced as they need repair. HIWAS is also gone. If your aircraft is just flying...
