PilotEdge professional air traffic control for flight simulators

Long Beach CA KLGB. Sitting on the south ramp I call ground and advise them that I would like to depart VFR to the practice area with information alpha.

They clear me to taxi and hold short runway 34L. I read back my clearance and take a look around. I haven’t flown at long beach before and can’t seem to figure out where that taxiway is (never a good sign :-)). Read the rest of this entry »

Pass Your Checkride

Pass Your Check Ride book review

The Private Pilot check ride can be one of the most stressful events in you’re flying career or it can be a somewhat relaxing or even fun event if well prepared.

The best advice I received when preparing my check ride was from my flight instructor.

In the end, it came down to the Bose financing offer (0% for one year). So I made the decision to place my order. Soon after, I found that the expected ship date was in 10 to 12 weeks! I was not a happy camper. Then I heard about a recall (causing the delay). I started thinking that I had made a mistake. The next day I searched the internet for financing offers from Lightspeed, and found that if you call them they will offer the same financing plan as Bose.  I had made up my mind to cancel my Bose order. Just than I got a call from my wife, the headset had arrived! Yea, I guess, but would I like it?   Read the rest of this entry »
