Experience for Experience Sake
I’ll admit it, I like merit badges. I like certificates of achievement. I like the recognition that comes with doing something new and different. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as adding a new line on my little plastic card with the portraits of Orville and Wilbur looking on with approval. Let’s face it, any time pilots get bored in the lounge, one likely topic of conversation will be “what ratings do you have?” It’s nice to feel like you’ve got a good foundation for your bragging rights...Read more
The Ascender - new backcountry flying star with a little Super Cub DNA
There are some weird and wonderful aircraft at Oshkosh, and this year the Ascender drew the crowds. This four seat super STOL aircraft was created by Alec Wild, the man behind the equally individual aircraft, the DoubleEnder (maybe don't google that in front of the kids or boss without putting the word aircraft in too!). Ed Hicks grabbed a chat with creator Alec Wild...Watch video

Rocky Mountain STOL Reflects Growth
Ralph Wentz Field (KPNA) is situated in the rustic town of Pinedale, Wyoming, with the Wind River mountain range serving as a picturesque backdrop for the second annual Rocky Mountain STOL competition hosted by Emblem Aviation.

Building the eXenos
After years of on-again, off-again building, we have finally reached the point where there are no parts left in the box and it’s time to enter the flight phase of this project. Building any homebuilt involves logistical challenges, but building a motorglider (or any glider for that matter) poses one that most sport-plane builders don’t face—finding a hangar big enough to accommodate a 46-foot wingspan...Read more

Get the Lead Out
We’ve all been there. The airplane is pulled out and baking on the hot ramp. Preflight complete. Passengers and bags are loaded and ready to go. Systems powering up seem normal. Battery voltage is a tad low, but still above 12 volts. Hit the starter and you’re rewarded with a weak quarter turn of the prop and then some pathetic clicks as the volts drop off a cliff...Read more
The Calculus Behind the Ultimate Panel Modernization
Throughout high school and college, I had a bit of an obsession with high-end bicycles. I was starstruck by handcrafted titanium frames, precision-machined components, and fully tunable suspension. I dedicated the majority of class time to studying the intricacies of custom bike builds. Faced with the budget of a typical high school student, I worked hard to get a job at one of the best bicycle shops in town, almost exclusively for the significant employee discounts that would enable me to feed my expensive habit...Read more
