Introducing: Our Best Pilot
NEW Bose A20 Aviation Headset
Bose was the first to introduce active noise reducing headsets to
aviation more than 20 years ago, forever changing the way pilots fly.
Now the Bose A20 Aviation Headset sets an entirely new standard,
providing significantly greater noise reduction than currently
available. It also features an improved level of comfort, clear audio,
audio input and priority switching.

Rob Schapiro went out to get some
instrument practice on a cloudy, mid-Atlantic day. He got it -- as well
as a full-blown emergency requiring some quick decisions and the help of
air traffic control. Schapiro lived to tell the tale, and he does with
IFR magazine's Jeff Van West. Segments of the ATC recordings are
also included in this podcast.

SAM GRAVES, CO-CHAIR OF THE GENERAL AVIATION
Congressman Sam Graves, who is a pilot, took
over as co-chair of the House GA caucus late last year. At AOPA Summit
last week in Hartford, Conn., he spoke with AVweb's Mary Grady
about some of the issues on this year's congressional agenda that are of
interest to pilots -- such as Lightsquared, avgas, FAA funding, and user
fees -- and shared his thoughts about how they will all turn out.
