Those points were partly my thinking, but I also relied on other experts to whom I had posed a variety of questions.
Effect of Fairings on Speed
The tests in this article were prompted by several events. Last summer at Oshkosh, I was chatting with Paul Dye about the effects of aerodynamic fairings. Not long after this, I was impressed by the incremental gains that Dave Anders achieved in his RV-4 and wrote about in KITPLANES.

Weather planning with Garmin Pilot: widgets and flight profile
One of Garmin Pilot’s standout features is its split-screen mode. Accessed from the Map page, this offers numerous options for displaying important flight information while keeping the main moving map page in view. While many pilots know how to use split-screen for viewing approach charts or traffic, there are also some valuable tools for weather planning, both before takeoff and during cruise. Here’s how to use the Widgets and Flight Profile features.
Avidyne Conceived Quantum Avionics with AAM in Mind
After nearly three decades of developing avionics systems and flight deck displays for general aviation airplanes, Avidyne is branching out into the advanced air mobility (AAM) industry with what it claims is an entirely new approach through its open avionics platform called Quantum.
Look Out! Avoiding Terrain and Obstructions

But getting caught in a tight situation is easier than you think, and escape can be difficult or impossible. This video aims to raise awareness of the risks and help pilots recognize potentially dangerous situations before it's too late.
