The Air Safety Institute wants you to keep stalls at bay
IAOPA News
Early in flight training, we learned that an aircraft can stall at any airspeed and at any attitude. So in order to prevent loss of control of the aircraft due to a stall, we practice stall recognition and recovery, and are required to demonstrate that we can fly the aircraft at minimum controllable airspeed. While the airspeed indicator, stall warning horn, and tactical feedback from the airplane are helpful cues that the wing is close to reaching the critical angle of attack, wouldn't it be nice to have a precise way to gauge when you’re about to wander beyond the wing's lift capacity?

Pilot unhurt, aircraft lands without gears at Ontario's Waterloo airport
Waterloo Region Record
A small Cessna plane made an unexpected landing at Region of Waterloo International Airport in Ontario after the pilot forgot to put down the plane's landing gear. The pilot was the only passenger and was unhurt when his plane had a bumpy landing. "The pilot thought it (retractable landing gear) was down, but it wasn't and he didn't realize it until he landed," said airport supervisor Sean Carroll. The plane experienced minor damage.

A flightseeing adventure into Alaska's Glacier Bay
Belleville News
According to author John M. Smith: In a recent travel piece, I wrote about our recent cruise and land tour to Alaska and the Yukon. I mentioned that we left the cruise portion of our Holland America excursion at Skagway, Alaska, where we began the land portion of our adventure. Well, this meant that we'd actually miss the ship's cruise into Glacier Bay, and I certainly wanted to see this fascinating area.

An aerobatics pilot spins (and rolls, and loops) a career from a crash
NPR
Patty Wagstaff performs incredible maneuvers in her small aerobatic airplane: rolls, loops and spins. She'll fly straight up, put the engine in idle, free-fall down, fire the engine back up and roar past crowds at air shows across the country. But that's not the scariest part of her routine. "Every air show pilot will tell you the most dangerous part of their job is getting to and from the show," Wagstaff says. Aerobatic stunt planes aren't equipped with the instruments that allow pilots to navigate through clouds. When it gets soupy up there, Wagstaff says, she gets nervous.

Unusual attitudes: When 'signed off' doesn't mean 'safe'
FLYING
According to author Martha Lunken: The service was at a Presbyterian church in a small town east of Cincinnati, Ohio — about a 30-minute flight in the Cessna 180. I had planned to fly there and commandeer the airport's retired police car, but my airplane wouldn't start. When I jumped in and "cranked," it wouldn't fire — odd, because it was fresh out of an annual and always lights right off. So I drove across the ramp, asked the guys at a shop to check it out, and got on the road for the two-hour drive to Hillsboro.
