five basic myths debunked

If you believe the naysayers, BasicMed is an abject failure. Thankfully, the litany of objections I’ve heard from the chronic complainers out there since the FAA adopted the medical-certification reforms are as colorful as they are devoid of truth. Here’s what the detractors would have us believe: • Doctors who aren’t aviation medical examiners won’t sign the BasicMed form out of fear of liability exposure. • The BasicMed checkup from a personal physician costs more than a third-class medical exam from an aviation medical examiner. • Aviation insurance companies won’t cover pilots who fly under BasicMed. • Our privacy rights are being trampled upon. • And (probably my favorite), I heard my doctor has to look at my butt, so forget it. I was among the first to gain qualification under BasicMed when the reforms took effect…

BOB MARTIN CUTTING OWNERSHIP COSTS There was only one mention of joining a flying club, but that’s what I did. My club has 64 members, but only about 12 fly regularly. We’ve also enjoyed a recent influx of new, younger members. They’ve been enthusiastic, have great attitudes and have brought new life to our club. DJORDJE JOVANOVIC FAA: MANUAL STICK SKILLS STILL LACKING I was a pilot engaged in long-range operation. Once, a dual hydraulic failure over the Atlantic forced us to fly manually. It was an excruciating experience. Our practice, however, was to hand-fly up to clearing noise abatement at departure and below 10,000 feet for landing. It allowed good feeling of the aircraft and practice for abnormal situations. YOUR SHOTS PETER NEAL Shoot! I hate it when I forget to pack my pontoons. Most of our…

A NEW-LOOK CHARTS Jeppesen navigation charts and data, favored by many pilots and flight departments, can now be viewed directly within the popular ForeFlight Mobile app. B FAMILIAR FEATURES The things pilots love about ForeFlight, such as its user interface and the ability to display weather graphics in flight, remain. C OWN-SHIP POSITION The moving aircraft icon in ForeFlight is georeferenced on the Jepp chart to aid with situational awareness. JEPP CHARTS COME TO FOREFLIGHT A marriage pilots have long been awaiting has arrived following the news that Jeppesen and ForeFlight are joining forces in a “strategic alliance” to combine the capabilities and content of both. ForeFlight Mobile subscribers can now add Jepp charts for the continental United States to the app for $199 a year, on top of the $99 they pay for a basic ForeFlight…

garmin unveils bizjet hud

Head-up display systems have been widely used in the military for decades, and the business jet market has also seen the value of presenting flight data in the pilot’s view out the window. With Garmin vying for a bigger chunk of the bizjet market, it has launched its own head-up display system to supplement its highly acclaimed integrated flight decks. The Garmin GHD 2100 HUD delivers a 30-degree, wide-angle display of pertinent flight information in front of the pilot’s eyes, minimizing the time spent looking down and easing the transition from IMC to visual conditions. The GHD 2100 displays information that is found on the PFD. This includes primary flight data, synthetic vision, and flight path and attitude information. A flight-path-marker-based flight director on the GHD 2100 shows an exact representation…

enhanced vision system

If you’ve flown in reduced visibility or on a clear, moonless night and wondered what was ahead, you’re not alone. Pilots flying aircraft equipped with an enhanced vision system receive increased situational awareness information delivered to the cockpit in limited-visibility situations both day and night. Manufacturers such as Max-Viz, Kollsman and Rockwell Collins produce infrared sensors like those in forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras used by the military and law enforcement. EVS infrared cameras detect the heat of objects to create a blackand- white image of the world ahead, whether it’s a person standing on the ramp, mountains to either side of the approach path or lights on the active runway . Typical EVS components include one or more infrared sensors, an image processor and a display device. The EVS camera is normally placed…

CHART WISE 1. What designates the missed approach point on the ILS RWY 35R? a. Upon reaching 1.4 DME, using the ILS DME readout. b. Upon reaching 1.4 DME, using the IIU VOR. c. Upon reaching the decision height of 680 feet msl. d. When 2 minutes, 57 seconds have elapsed after passing the final approach fix, assuming the aircraft is flying at 120 knots. 2. Can a pilot approaching from the west overfly the FTK VOR to establish the aircraft on the approach? a. Yes, if the pilot then tracks to BRBON on the 106-degree radial. b. No, this procedure is not authorized because it takes the aircraft through a restricted area. c. Yes, but only if the pilot can identify PGSUS using GPS. 3. If approach control told the pilot flying the ILS to expect a sidestep to…
