How to Plan an IFR Flight - ForeFlight Planning - IFR Preflight - FlightInsight

A full step by step guide to planning a real IFR flight. We'll pick up our tablet and use ForeFlight and some other tools to plan an IFR flight in California between Santa Ynez (KIZA) and Palo Alto (KPAO). It's a typical early morning summer day on the West Coast with low lying fog complicating our flight planning. Let's dive in!

Is this a UFO?!?! - Grimes Flying Laboratory - National Aviation Heritage Area - AOPA Pilot Video

This amazing Beech 18 has been confused with a UFO many times. Warren Grimes used it as a flying lab to test aviation lighting. There are still 75 lights on the red, white, and blue twin. You can see it on display for special events in Urbana, Ohio.


Vansant Airport, Erwinna, PA

"Van Sant is a classic, grass field airstrip in Erwinna, PA. Bar and Dannie Eisenhauer operate the FBO and offer rides in a 1928 Travel Air biplane, a 1942 Stearman, a 1946 Piper Cub and more. Located on the field are some of the finest examples of vintage planes anywhere. Check out the website for more info. During the summer they hold a dinner movie night on the last Saturday of the month. During the afternoon they give airshow priced plane rides. During dinner there is usually live music with the movie starting at dusk projected on to a hangar door. People fly in, drive in, bike in and walk in for this event. Please come visit. Fun for everyone - adults, kids and dogs! Or fly in any time for a good burger at the Betty Boop grill and just sit under the trees and watch the aviation action!" - Submitted by Samantha Beattie
