Wing in Ground (WIG) Cargo Flying Boat 10-17-17  Did you know that 99% of the ocean surface has wave heights less that 13 feet?
Ever find yourself hovering in ground effect waiting for the plane to touch down? Aviation articles talk about a magic distance between the wing and the runway that generate ground effect that gives the plane more lift and less drag... hmmm. Somebody from NASA gave some serious thought about this and is proposing a WIG flying boat that would take advantage of ground effect generated over the ocean water and fly about 20 feet above the surface to take advantage of the extra lift and less drag.

AVARE GPS APP FOR ANDROIDS: 10-4-17: A lot of talk about EFB's and I've seen some pretty neat apps running on tablets. I have also seen a free download GPS navigation tool that shows your position and data right on the sectional. I have it on my Samsung S3. It's great for local flights as well as for cross country. The Garmin 430 is supposed to be the primary GPS but I find myself using it as a backup to the S3 app. It also has a feature called "tracking." This allow you to trace your flight on the map and save it as a KML file. You can then drag and drop the file on Google Maps and see the flight path. You can also drop onto Google Earth and see the 3D version.
