Eclipse Aircraft Review

The Eclipse 500 and 550 Review Corporate jets used to be judged by how big and fast they were. Prices for jet fuel went up from roughly thirty cents a gallon in the early 1970s to over six dollars a gallon today. Smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient are now the watchwords of the charter and corporate flight world. Kerosene sipping engines and light weight composite materials have made a difference on existing models of aircraft, but there has been a recent trend to make jets smaller –

Pilatus PC-12 Review:  Single Engine Economy with Jet Speeds

Pilatus PC-12 Review Single Engine Economy with Jet Speeds Single engine corporate and air taxi aircraft were unheard of thirty years ago. Engines were reliable, but not considered as powerful and dependable as today’s power plants. Airlines were not allowed to carry passengers across oceans with an aircraft that had less than three engines and most flew their international flight with four. It was a multi-engine world. Single engine aircraft have come to the forefront of the air taxi a

Zap-Flaps, Winglets and a Spoiler Alert

Aviation is considered by many to be a very modern and state-of-the-art sort of thing. We can travel close to the speed of sound to almost any destination we want. Continents can be traversed in the matter of hours instead of months and years. Bad weather can be circumnavigated and sometimes even flown over as we travel to our destinations. We owe all of this mobility to a wing design that has changed very little since the days of Wilbur and Orville. The airfoil, or wing, has been around f

Part 135 Operations

Most depictions of aviation charters in the movies and on television feature a crazy-eyed pilot who is not ashamed to scare the life out of his or her passengers. The plane shown on the screen is usually ratty in appearance, noisy, and frightening to behold. If charter and air taxi aircraft aren’t being shown as clown cars, they are being shown as a luxury barges that most likely carries the bad guys to their lairs or good guys in hot pursuit of the bad guys.

Cirrus SR22 Review

Cirrus SR22 Review A comfortable and swift ride for the short-haul. Corporate and air-taxi operators have changed their outlook somewhat during the past decade.

Crew Rest Periods

The movie-based ideas about pilots being swashbuckling types who can shake off long periods without sleep by chugging black coffee and forcing themselves awake are a thing of the past. No pilot wants to be the one who has a mishap because they didn’t manage their rest and alertness. New tools and techniques are in existence now that weren’t available in the past. Crew rest is quickly becoming one of the most talked about topics in professional aviation circles. Flight crews get ti
