The Chandelle Maneuver: What it is and Why You Should Learn to Fly it

ManeuverPilotMall.com Editor
You may not be an aerobatics pilot performing a Cuban Eight for a crowd of airshow spectators, but there are other less complex aerial maneuvers that we all can enjoy learning. One of our favorite skill-building maneuvers is a smooth, graceful, seemingly effortless climbing turn that our fellow pilots have been performing for over one hundred years.

What is a Pilot in Command (PIC)?

What is a Pilot in Command (PIC)?

EducationPilotMall.com Editor

When we think of the pilot in command, to us that usually means the person who is actually in the left seat flying the aircraft. This generalization is often true, but the details of who counts as the pilot in command (PIC) and when pilots can log pilot in command time, especially on a multi-pilot crew are not always that straightforward.

Imagine you arrive at the airport planning a quick hop to the rustic mountainside cabin you reserved for a weekend getaway. The only problem? The runway is socked in with fog as thick as pea soup, and it doesn’t look like it will be dissipating any time soon. Now what?

How to File a Flight Plan: Step-By-Step Guide

TrainingPilotMall.com Editor

It’s the worst-case scenario that none of us want to think about. During a winter flight, we had to make an emergency landing in a remote location where there is no cell service. Our radio was damaged in the landing, and the battery in the portable radio is dead.  We were flying VFR and did not file a flight plan, so no one with the FAA will know we are overdue when we fail to arrive at our destination. Now what?

How to Calculate True Airspeed and What It Is (Guide)

AircraftPilotMall.com Editor

Ask a racecar driver what their top speed is, and it is an easy answer. No calculations required. The same applies to a sprinter or marathon runner.

Airspace Visibility Requirements: Why are they Mandatory?

Airspace Visibility Requirements: Why are they Mandatory?

TrainingPilotMall.com Editor

The need to see our surroundings is non-negotiable when flying under visual flight rules (VFR). Without proper visibility, pilots are at increased risk for collisions on takeoffs, landings, and mid-air. Therefore we must fly solely in areas with visual meteorological conditions (VMC) and avoid instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) when flying VFR. To promote safe flight, the FAA has established weather minimums and airspace visibility requirements that VFR pilots must observe.

Aircraft Category and Class: What is the Difference Between Them?

Student PilotPilotMall.com Editor
What category and class of aircraft are you certified to fly? Now, what are the category and class of your private plane?
