remembering a legend

Charles Lindbergh. William Ziff. Richard Collins. Whenever I think of Flying magazine, these three names spring to mind first. The excitement that enthralled the world after Lindbergh’s solo New York to Paris flight in May 1927 compelled a young Bill Ziff Sr. to found a monthly journal devoted to personal flying, published for the first time in August of that year. The pilot in the leather flying helmet you see at the top left corner of this page is indeed the Lone Eagle, created as an homage from a photograph taken at the Ryan Aircraft factory in San Diego during construction of The Spirit of St. Louis in the spring of 1927. Without Lindbergh and Ziff, this magazine, esteemed in the aviation publishing world, wouldn’t exist. Without Dick Collins, Flying wouldn’t be…

WARBIRDS ARE WORTH IT That was a very enjoyable read on purchasing a warbird [May]. I belonged to the Commemorative Air Force back in the ’70s in San Marcos, Texas. The warbird owners had a fairly precise term for their monetary involvement: They called it “cubic money!” Terry Capps via email THE RISKS OF FORMATION FLYING In regard to the May 2018 Flying article “Learn to Fly Formation Like the Pros,” I noted multiple references to lower risk in conducting formation operations. I’d argue that formation flying has inherently more risk than routine single-aircraft operations. We’re not talking about military operations here. Although formation is intended to be well-planned and executed in disciplined and coordinated fashion, lapses, errors and skill deficiencies are of potentially higher consequence. Did I feel safer flying in the Mooney Caravan…

levil aviation’s bom

Levil Aviation’s Broadcasting Outer Module (BOM) resembles a tiny radar pod when installed beneath the wing of an aircraft. The BOM wirelessly transmits a variety of flight information to the cockpit for use by iOS and Android tablets and other devices. The pod contains a WAAS GPS sensor for aircraft position information, an AHRS for attitude and heading, an ADS-B In traffic and weather receiver, angle-of-attack information, a pitot tube for derived wind speed and direction, and flight data logging. The BOM includes an additional heated pitot source for airspeed information. Because the BOM is not a required system, it can be installed as a safety backup. The BOM requires no hard wiring to the cockpit, not even for a power source thanks to the device’s slipstream-powered generator that charges the…

garmin   inreach mini

Personal tracking devices like Garmin’s inReach Mini provide peace of mind not only to the person carrying it, but also to those who depend upon the inReach user. Weighing in at 4.23 ounces, the impact- and water-resistant device makes a perfect addition to any flight bag. Whether on the grid or off, the inReach Mini connects to the rest of the world through the Iridium satellite network to provide position tracking, interactive SOS services with emergency responders and two-way text messaging, even when outside areas of regular cellphone coverage. The device links to a wide variety of compatible products, such as Garmin’s Pilot app and the aviation-specific D2 Charlie watch, as well as maps, aerial imagery and NOAA charts and some weather services. The inReach Mini rechargeable lithium battery lasts about two…

active noise reduction

In the early days of airborne communications, earphones were created to make deciphering radio conversations for pilots easier above the roar of the engines and wind. Some of the first earphones crafted from hard Bakelite used no padding and were extremely uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. Advances in acoustical research improved the wearing comfort of headsets by adding flexible cups that totally covered the ears, although they only muted some of flying’s more annoying noises. While experts claimed our sense of hearing was nearly as critical to flying as a keen sense of sight, it wasn’t until about 30 years ago that engineers realized the importance of blending comfort with advances in hearing protection. Research, in fact, shows unprotected exposure to noise levels greater than 90 db, equivalent…
