Hot Spots

Here’s a great reminder about “hot spots” at busy airports. And no I’m not talking about free wi fi in the terminal. As a local flight instructor that has been training primarily out of my Class E airport that underlies Class B airspace, it’s easy for me to forget that a short distance away lies a very bust Class B International airport, complete with tower, lots of runways and lots or airplanes. Not to mention a busy Air National Guard as well (don’t accidentally taxi into their ramp, they tend to great with armed MPs).

This article courtesy of AOPA outlines the importance of referencing your airport diagrams carefully, especially at busy airports and making note of any “hot spots” that may be present. The FAA’s definition of a hot spot is “A runway safety related problem area on an airport that presents increased risk during surface operations.”

Spacing

We’ve all been in the air on a busy Saturday morning or when the winter weather turns to a nice spring day. It certainly can be frustrating, intimidating and sometimes scary when we’re “bumper to bumper” or nose to tail in the traffic pattern. 

I really liked this article put out by AOPA this month in their ‘Training Tips’. It’s called Proper Spacing is Critical and you need to read it. Enjoy!

Density Altitude

I always like to post about DA and summer time flying, but I think Rod Machado’s video best explains it all.

Sit back and enjoy by Rod, the best in the biz. http://bit.ly/1iBL4VC

Discovery Flight of the Week

Thanks to Scott Neal for joining Randon Aviation Friday for a Discovery flight! The weather and unlimited visibility couldn’t have made for a better flight! And after 20 years away, Scott’s stick and rudder skills were fantastic! Good job!

Let us know if you have the urge to get up in the air. Tyson CFI, CFII, MEI 801-560-7872
