RV Aircraft News Stories Fun Destination! Air Zoo Museum, Portage, MI

"When you visit the Air Zoo's aircraft collection, you're entering the land of giants. You'll see a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk. Gaze up at an awesome F-18. You'll get up close and personal with an overpowering F-14 Tomcat, the star of Top Gun. And you'll stand face-to-face with the SR-71B Blackbird spy plane, still unmatched in speed and altitude. Fly in and park right at the Air Zoo East Campus." - Submitted by Harry

RV Aircraft News Stories Why Aircraft Engines Quit

Aircraft engines, for obvious reasons, are supposed to be reliable, but having one tank is a recurring nightmare for many pilots. How often does it happen? Often enough, but as AVweb's Paul Bertorelli reveals in this video, the risk is not really as high as many of us imagine and more than half of engine failures are caused by pilot or mechanic mistakes.

RV Aircraft News Stories MERE FEAR

Believing that you can fly without ever experiencing a little fear is like believing that the purchase of deep fried pork skins will allow you to reassemble the pig at home. It's not going to happen. If you fly, you will eventually find some way to spook yourself in an airplane. Probability says so. Unanticipated turbulence, gusty crosswinds, lackluster navigation, an inattentive scan or engine burps can all do the dirty deed.
