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:
SCARY TAKE-OFF. U.S. air-safety investigators are looking into a mechanical failure that caused the nose of an Allegiant Airlines jet to rise off the ground prematurely before takeoff, defying the crew's attempts to push it down. Pilots abruptly aborted the takeoff at 138 miles an hour to regain control of the Boeing Co. MD-83 in Las Vegas on Aug. 17, the FAA said. Allegiant said an inspection found that a device that moves one of the plane's two elevators had become disconnected. The plane was repaired and put back into service.
Chinese Drone Requirements The market for consumer drones in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen - the country's leading production base for unmanned aerial vehicles - has been growing at an explosive rate over the past two years and with it a new profession has emerged: instructor for the operation of UAVs, the Guangzhou Daily reports. Since drone pilots are required to obtain a private or commercial license, a school offering flight classes to private drone pilots opened in the city earlier this year, the report said. Six of the school's 15 trainees have passed their tests and obtained licenses, becoming the first group of licensed civilian UAV pilots in Shenzhen, according to the report. The regulations also stipulate that anyone who wishes to operate a UAV heavier than seven kilograms or fly it higher than 120 meters off the ground must obtain a license, said Liu Yueping, a senior executive at the training school.
