Sporty's Fast Five

1. Weather strategy: improve your preflight and in-flight decision making.

Modern weather forecasts and charts are just a few taps away. Aviation Meteorologist Scott Dimmich and iPad Pilot News Editor Bret Koebbe recently presented a webinar on the subject, explaining how these products are developed and where you can find them in apps like ForeFlight. They also shed some light on how to use in-flight weather products from SiriusXM and ADS-B to improve your in-flight decision making when the weather is less than ideal.

2. Beech X700: The Starship that could have been - by Mac McClellan.

Beech, as every successful company does, had ongoing efforts to design improved and replacement airplanes for the company line. In the late 1970s John Pike had his preliminary design group perform configuration studies on airplanes that could supersede Beechs King Air 90 and 200 stalwart turboprops. The X700 seemed to be the best idea, but it was never made.

3. How to use the new Search and Airspace features in ForeFlight 10.

ForeFlight took the wraps off version 10 earlier this week, which adds a collection of pilot-centric features that really improve how you interact with the app, both on the ground and in the air. New features include a turbocharged search feature, airspace highlighting, airspace profile view, global airspace details and automatic downloads for charts and data.

4. Normal Landings - HD Flight Maneuver Spotlight.

In the latest edition of the Flight Maneuver Spotlight series, well highlight the various maneuvers youll practice during your flight training and be expected to demonstrate during your private pilot checkride. This time we're covering how the plane should be landed.

5. Know when to fold 'em: How to avoid tunnel vision in the cockpit.

Have you ever noticed that you become less and less flexible as a flight goes on? Decisions that once would have been easy and stress-free become fraught when youre close to home. Its a natural human instinct, but its one pilots need to aggressively fight.
