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
gifts are created by Fabulous Flying's fans.
Weekly aviation tidbits:
Flying an Airplane for an Hour Exposes High-altitude Pilots to as Much Radiation as a Tanning Bed Airplane windshields allow UV radiation to enter the cockpit, giving pilots a dose
similar to dangerous levels found in tanning beds. Airplane windshields can block some ultraviolet (UV) radiation found in sunlight, but a significant amount passes directly into the cockpit.
This puts the crew at risk of developing melanoma, which is the most serious form of skin cancer. In the study, published in JAMA Dermatology, researchers from the University of California,
San Francisco, compared the level of UV radiation in the cockpit of a general aviation turboprop airplane with the dose produced by a standard tanning bed. In previous research, published in
JAMA Dermatology, an analysis of 19 studies showed that pilots are twice as likely as the general population to develop melanoma and 42 percent more likely to die from it.
Air France passenger jet makes emergency landing in Ireland after CHILLI PEPPERS set off fire alarm during transatlantic flight Plane was travelling to Paris from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Flight crew declared emergency after alarm went off in cargo hold Alarm was activated by heat from the peppers. The Boeing 747-400 was flying from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to Paris when its flight crew was alerted to a potential fire in the cargo hold. But reports say there was no fire at all and the alarm sounded because of the heat from the peppers. Fire crews inspected the cargo hold and found no evidence of a fire. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-2874227/Air-France-passenger-jet-makes-emergency-landing-Ireland-CHILI-PEPPERS-set-fire-alarm-transatlantic-flight.html#ixzz3LyKcFq35
