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:
Hacking through your tablet Scientists say that wireless devices and apps used by private pilots during flights are susceptible to a range of security attacks. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego and John Hopkins University presented their findings Nov. 5 at the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security in Scottsdale, Ariz. The findings revealed that a combination of three most commonly used devices- the Appareo Stratus 2 receiver with the ForeFlight app; the Garmin GDL 39 receiver with the Garmin Pilot app; and the SageTech Clarity CL01 with the WingX Pro7 app- are used by casual pilots to access information, which is same as the information provided to the pilots of private jets, for much lesser cost. In order to display information, the devices need to be paired with tablet computers or most of the time with iPad apps that reportedly have flaws.
Kirill Levchenko, a computer scientist at the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego, who led the study, said that on attack these devices, one could not only gain control over the aircraft, but also have control over the information the pilot sees.
Terrafugia now street legal Terrafugia has built in safety measures mandated by both the FAA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. So, for example, the Transition has both a parachute and airbags. To take care of the fact that it doesn't have a traditional rear windshield, the Transition has a camera in the back, allowing drivers to see what's behind them through a screen on the dash. No one wants to get into a lane-changing accident with a plane, after all. It also has all the things you'd expect in a car, such as standard seatbelts and side-view mirrors that can see around the massive wings when in car mode and can be removed altogether for flight. Despite being street legal (with the wings up), the Transition is not exactly what you'd call a general purpose vehicle.To use both the flying and driving functions - and, if you're going to drop an anticipated $279,000 on a vehicle, why wouldn't you? - you must have at least a sports pilot license.
