Our Single Pilot Resource Mgmt courses are live on the SPRM page . Unfortunately the FAA changed their compatibility requirements for videos so our courses cannot be uploaded for Wings credit even though in our courses it says you can.... sorry about that. It has been a 3 year fight to get these transferred from Activities to Courses on the Wings page and we were close until their computer wizzards changed everything and our embedded videos in our courses cannot be uploaded onto their servers. Our SPRM course are still great for continuing education and they are fun to watch... no pressure - no tests!
Gifts for Pilots created by Pilots To satisfy an urge to give a unique give to an aviator, consider our Books & DVD page and Aviation Art links. Most of the

Weekly aviation tidbits:
British Navy Warship Tests a 3-D-Printed Drone at Sea The successful launch of a 3-D-printed drone from a ship shows a possible route to cheaper autonomous aircraft. The Royal Navy ship HMS Mersey launched something unusual from its gun deck off England's southern coast-a cheap drone made using a 3-D printer. The three-kilogram craft with an airplane-style design was launched by a three-meter catapult and autonomously flew between a few preprogrammed waypoints for five minutes before being piloted to a safe belly landing on a pebbly beach. The cheap drone had been printed on shore and then assembled on the ship.
NASA has chosen the astronauts who will be the first to fly in the upcoming return by the USA to manned space launch operations. The foursome will be trained to fly the SpaceX Dragon capsule and Boeing's Crew Space Transportation CST-100 over the next two years.
Sunita Williams is probably the highest profile member of the crew; she has spent nearly a year in space in total and was, until recently, the world's most experienced female astronaut. Williams, a former ISS commander, also holds the women's record for the amount of time spent spacewalking and has been at NASA longer than any of her compatriots. Before astronaut training she was a Navy test pilot.
Robert Behnken is a specialist in robotics and is a former Air Force test pilot who helped develop the F-22 fighter before joining NASA as a pilot in 2000. He has completed two Space Shuttle missions, both on Endeavour, and helped install the Japanese Kibo Laboratory on the ISS.
Eric Boe is another former Air Force test pilot, as well as a combat flier over Iraq with 55 missions on his record. He has flown two Space Shuttle missions, both as pilot, and delivered the ISS infamous water recycling machinery that turns yesterday's coffee into today's cappuccino.
Douglas Hurley is a former marine and naval test pilot who was the first jarhead to fly the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet. He was the pilot on the last ever Space Shuttle mission back in 2011 aboard Atlantis.
