Cessna 210 V-Speeds by Eric Bartsch
I'll be taking my first dual in a 1974 Cessna 210II this Sunday and I won't have access to a POH until then. If anyone could post the V-Speeds and typical traffic pattern speeds, I'd appreciate it so I can start a bit of studying in advance. Also, any words of wisdom about the plane would be...

listening to ATC on United Airlines by Bucky
I'm not a pilot, just your typical passenger. I don't fly United often, so I just discovered that they put the ATC on the inflight audio. I was totally fascinated and want to learn some more. Is there a website that has some basic ATC protocols? Not some huge reference manual, just the common...

Why couldn't it have been Mayor Daley?? by [email protected]
With all the reports now coming out about how close that Cessna came to getting smoked over Washington, it got me thinking. When the governor of Kentucky flew into D.C. in his King Air with a dead transponder, it caused all kinds of panic. Then the Cessna incident happened. If something like that...

Security in the USA by Cockpit Colin
I'm curious ... What do you folks in the USA think the answer to the big "question" is, when it comes to things like security of the whitehouse? What's best ... (a) Increase the radius of the no-fly zones to give greater protection against faster aircraft?

Here's evidence why the gov't assholes overreacted. by R.L.
It's come out that the C150 was squawking VFR. Why on F*g earth would a pilot on a supposed suicide-bomb mission bother to have his damned transponder on, much less squawk 1200 while penetrating the ADIZ? Doesn't make sense. I believe I heard that the 9/11 hijackers knew enough to turn...

True to the rugged pioneer spirit of our great country, DC cowered for cover again as a Cessna violated the no-fly zone. Fighter jets were scrambled to deal with this imminent threat to the security of our nation.

Service Volumes of VOR's make no sense by Antoņio
I was at a CFI safety meeting today and the subject of VOR service volumes came up. The AIM describes the Standard High Service Volume as providing positive course guidance at varying distances depending on your altitude--40nm at 1000ft., 100nm at 14,500ft, 130nm at 45,000ft, etc. If the VOR is a...
