NEWS AND INFORMATION
SnowGate on 33  11-21-14: Everybody is getting ready for winter. If you didn't change the oil on your snow blower last spring, it's probably a good idea to do it pretty soon or you'll end up going two years on the same oil. Speaking of oil, it's also that time of year to plug in the engine oil heaters. Don't forget to plug in after your flight. By the way, that green fence is a "snow fence" and from what I understand, there is a specification on its size and dimensions from the taxiway. I believe the idea is to deflect the wind so that the taxiway will have minimum snow accumulation. I'll take another picture in January to see how it's working. Click on the runway numbers below to see some pics of the new runway.

Flying at 34,500 m.p.h.  11-14-14: Space travel these days seems to be happening mostly in the movie theaters. However, for the past 10 years since its launch, CLICK HERE TO ENLARGEan unmanned spacecraft (is that an USV?) has been circling the inner parts of the solar system to gain enough momentum to rendezvous with a comet called 67P somewhere out beyond the orbit of the planet Mars. The spacecraft is so far away, it takes 30 minutes for the radio signal (traveling at 186,282 miles per second) to reach it. Thanks to 17th century mathematician Isaac Newton for mathematically defining the laws of motion and gravity, engineers and scientist are able to calculate with orbital mechanics the trajectory of the spacecraft and use two nearby passes of earth and one pass by Mars to use a slingshot effect to accelerate to 34,500 mph required for the rendezvous. I wonder if manned spaceships will have a "Direct-To" button on their navigational screens?

EAA 225 Newsletter  11-10-14: Itís been 4 months since we last had a meeting in Sanford, Maine and our November meeting will be hosted by Southern Maine Aviation in Sanford. The November meeting will be held on Veterans Day (Tuesday, November 11th) and as a tribute to our veterans, they will eat our EAA 225 barbecue

Are You Ready for Glass?  11-05-14: The days of analog boiler gauges seems to be taking a back seat to what's being called the "Glass Panel." I had an opportunity to fly a light sport with a full Dynon EFIS-D1000 (Electronic Flight Monitoring System) and EMS (Engine Monitoring System) with auto-pilot. For some pilots, having all that automation in a light sport is a contradiction. Give me a six-pack, com-nav vor and a transponder and you're good to go. All right, maybe a Garmin GPS for nav instead of the VOR. Anything more than that is going to be a distraction. Besides, if you are going for a little ride for that so called $100 hamburger, you'll be able to see your airport of destination shortly after take-off. But if you're interested in a $300 hamburger, now you have some time to play around with the glass panel. Getting used to the little rectangular computer screens with all the sliding and scrolling bars framing the screen and spattered with various types of data in strategic locations takes a little getting used to. Dynon has a unique feature where the multifunction buttons are along the bottom of the screen so they can use the computer screen to show the name of the button function relative to the different screen pages that are active. And if you don't have enough information to satisfy your wow factor, you have the option to split the EFIS screen and add more data. Don't forget to look out the window every now and then so you don't overfly your destination.
