New Owners Aim To Revive DC-Metro GA Airport
Peter Mastropieri is trying to put his grass strip airport back on the map. “The interesting thing about Keymar Airpark (MD42) is that right now, we are actually not on the sectional chart because there is a Camp David text box over the airport.

Golden-Hued Memories of a Late Summer Fly-In
Living in Wisconsin has pros and cons. My dad, a resident of sunny San Diego, enjoys reminding me of the con that is long, harsh winters. Without fail, I can expect to receive a video clip from him in the frigid depths of January or February showing him splashing barefoot through the warm surf and mocking me for the sub-zero maelstrom of snow and ice with which I’m inevitably contending...Read More
So You’d Like to Go Faster
The best way to go faster is by drag reduction. Drag reduction is far better than other methods from a cost benefit perspective because you get free speed or increased mileage—well, relatively free when compared to touching your propeller or engine. Both of those tend to be very expensive...Read More
Joby-Backed Firm Completes Piloted Flights of Liquid Hydrogen-Powered Aircraft
In 2021, electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) air taxi developer Joby Aviation secretly acquired a company producing hydrogen aircraft fuel cell systems.

These are great, but we’ve found the App Store has a plethora of niche apps that might do well do supplement and automate tasks for pilots. Here’s a list of six apps we find useful in no particular order...Read More
