A nearly $1 million settlement in a wrongful eviction case at Yakima Air Terminal has ended years of uncertainty for the city of Yakima and Yakima County, which once faced the prospect of paying millions of dollars to former tenant M.A.

West Rockies. Gyroplane. The Training Train in your AutoGyro or ours.

Gyroplane

We have an excellent safety record and understand how to train you so that you can continue to operate your aircraft in a safe manner. Since safety has always been our foremost priority (we have the best safety record of any flight school in Boise), our training program follows a structured syllabus of ground and flight training with an emphasis on good decision making.

An existing pilot adding a sport pilot category and class rating (FAR 61.321) may operate a gyroplane after getting training from a qualified gyroplane CFI on all the items listed in FAR 61.309 and 61.311. Backcountry surprise - AOPA. On the ramp outside the CubCrafters factory in Yakima, Washington, the XCub is striking for its aerodynamically clean lines and exceptional fit and finish.

The speed mods start with the spring aluminum landing gear (not bungees), carbon fiber fairings, and internal pushrod controls instead of draggy pulleys and wires. This airplane, the third XCub the factory has produced, is halfway through an FAA-mandated 50-hour flight test period. The only practical implication of that, for me, is that during the test period it’s limited to one occupant—so CubCrafters President Randy Lervold will stay on the ground rather than coach me from the backseat.

The CubCrafters XCub brings speed and range to the backcountry. New Page 1. I have compiled this list from the message board and emails that I have received and cut and pasted here.

No particular order and several of the same item from different sources. The advice is always use genuine Jabiru supplied parts. Jabiru have apparently been supplying sub standard pattern parts themselves on occasion!!! On the Mark: How Airports Can Help Revitalize the Aviation Industry. As an industry, our ship has been taking on water for some time despite a number of conscientious national initiatives, most of which haven’t moved the needle very much.

If we don’t figure out how to start bringing more new people into the industry soon, we’re going to run short of people to fly and repair the airplanes we do build and watch more and more airports become ghost towns.

On the upcoming Super Bowl Sunday, a lot of us will be playing arm-chair quarterback.

How midbrain map continuously updates visuospatial memory

After the snap, we might use our eyes to track a wide receiver as he runs toward an opening, all the while remembering the location of the star running back in case he breaks through on a rushing play. This natural ability to track one moving player but be ready to quickly look back toward another one sounds simple. But the science behind it is not so simple. In a groundbreaking study, York university researchers have discovered how a map in the midbrain remembers the location of visual targets even as the eyes follow another object.

"As the eyes move, activity related to the remembered target travels across the 'visual' cells in the midbrain superior colliculus, constantly keeping track of its location relative to the direction the eyes are currently pointed," explains Professor J. 331 The Good, The Bad, and The TSA.

But summer flying often means thunderstorms and extreme changes in weather that can lead to accidents. It’s also a time to think about a system that doesn’t do all it can to protect those pilots and passengers. Flying in small private planes is far riskier than flying in commercial aircraft. Unfit for Publication: How <i>USA Today</i> Got Everything Wrong  USA Today splashed across its June 18, 2014, front page the breathless headline, "Unfit for Flight" to dramatize the deadly enterprise of flying general aviation aircraft (small airplanes).

Interview: Rod Magner, Magic Air Tours. Novel technology reveals aerodynamics of migrating birds flying in a V-formation. Researchers using custom-built GPS and accelerometer loggers, developed with funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, (EPSRC), and attached to free-flying birds on migration, have gained ground-breaking insights into the mysteries of bird flight formation.

The research, led by the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, proves for the first time that birds precisely time when they flap their wings and position themselves in aerodynamic optimal positions, to maximise the capture of upwash, or 'good air', throughout the entire flap cycle, while avoiding areas of downwash or 'bad air'. It was previously not thought possible for birds to carry out such aerodynamic feats because of the complex flight dynamics and sensory feedback required.
