6-5-16 On Saturday June 4, mother nature was nice and gave us a beautiful day. Thousands attend the Skyhaven Wings and Wheels event to benefit Gerry Food Pantry. Click on the video below to see some of the activities.

VFR In February 2-17-18: The density altitude was minus 2,000 feet. Typical for this time of the year. The commuter traffic formed a solid white line heading north on the Spaulding Turnpike and southbound on 95. Remember, when you transit Delta airspace make sure you have established radio contact before you cross the imaginary dash line. However, when you exit they may say goodbye or just abandon you and not say anything.
.
Runway Hotspots 2-14-18: Have you seen the FAA hotspot publications lately? If you haven't looked at an airport diagram for a while, you might be wondering what are those "HS 1" and "HS 2" markings are all about. The airport diagram itself won't tell you anything. You need to go to another FAA publication for an explanation. And then, you need to go to a pdf file to find out the meaning of a particular HS marking. Have you noticed that Portland now has two HS markings. Maybe we should have hotspot markings on TomTom and Magellan automotive gps devices to alert drivers of their dangerous driving habits. The speed limit in front of my house is 30, but many vehicles are speeding over 50. I'll give that a big "HS 1". HS could also stand for "Holy Mackerel."

EAA 225 Meeting This Evening 2-13-18: From the EAA newsletter: "This meeting we need to talk about our summer events. Peter has been at the wings and wheels meeting and I'm looking forward to the latest information. If anyone has contacts in local EAA chapters it would be a good time to discuss getting in touch with them. The wings and wheels show from past experience brings in a ton of kids. It would be great to have a crowd of pilots to fly young eagles! "

BAE Systems' newest drone; the MAGMA  2-8-18: BAE and the University ofCLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION Manchester have announced the first successful flight on December 13. The design has no moving control surfaces? Yes, they say they are using  two newly developed systems to navigate in the air; wing circulation control (WCC) and fluidic thrust vectoring (FTV). It looks like the WCC replaces the ailerons and the FTV replaces the elevator. Apparently they don't need rudder control. Or do they?
.
VFR To Nowhere  2-7-18: Yes, it's still very much winter in New England. Looks like this storm goes from here to Mexico .This page from the GFA leaves no doubt about what's going on. I think I'll go put some gas in my snowblower.
.
Winds at 3000 49 knots? 2-1-18: So I went for a little ride the other day and on myway to Sanford airport I'm indicating 120 mph airspeed and the GS on the GPS was reading 144 knots. Looking at the winds aloft before take-off the report showed winds at 3000 at 49 knots. But on the ground the wind was reported light and variable at 4 knots. Climbing out from the light and variatble ground wind to the unusually fast winds at 2000 feet was relatively smooth and uneventfulll other than a remarkable ground of 165 mph. Not to bad for a 160 hp Skyhawk. On the left and right are screen captures of the KDAW and KSFM ASOS and winds aloft from the Avare app on a Samsung Galaxy S3.
