The start of a new year is always a good time to revise your bucket list or “to do” list. For some that may be starting or finishing up your private pilot license. For others, it could be that flight review or instrument proficiency check to keep you current. Regardless of where you are at, don’t put it off. We can help with the following:

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.”
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!
Proper Spacing is Critical
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
