The Best We've Ever Made
Bose was the first to introduce active noise reducing headsets to
aviation more than 20 years ago, forever changing the way pilots fly.
Today, we continue to set the standard with the Bose A20 Aviation
. The headset provides acclaimed noise reduction, with a
comfortable fit and the clear audio you expect from Bose. It also
connectivity, an auxiliary audio input and priority switching.
NEW MATH -- A NEW MODEL FOR GA?
The idea of creating a
business jet that outperforms the competition is standard fare, but
actually pulling that off while selling the jet for less is a head
turner; enter Nextant Aerospace. Since October 2011, Nextant has been
delivering the world's only FAA-certified remanufactured business jet,
the 400XT. The company is currently working to improve output to 40
aircraft per year as it seeks to fill demand for more than 80 orders

but saying that the company's product is superior may be statistically
demonstrable. It may also be good reason to suspect that others may
follow. Right now, this is a success story. And looking forward, how
Nextant did it may be just as important as why. Click

GLASS GOES DARK
Among the first things pilots learn is what
to do if something goes wrong. Instrument pilots get to learn what to do
when instruments or the systems powering them fail and how to get back
on the ground with what's left. Back in the days when each instrument
was a separate, physical thing instead of a software construct
presenting symbols or alphanumeric data, their presentation was
relatively well known and predictable. These days, however, those same
instruments often have been replaced with what is essentially a computer
screen. What happens when it fails? Click

OF THE MONTH: BENNETT BIBEL'S MOONEY M20J
|click for photos|
If you can't
afford a new airplane -- and let's face it, most of us can't -- a
refurbed late-model aircraft can do 90 percent of the mission at a
fraction of the cost, especially one like the popular Mooney M20J 201.
That's the strategy Bennett Bibel followed in his pull-out-all-the-stops
rebuild of a 1983 J-model, which we've picked as our refurbed aircraft
of the month. More...
