  • Highlander Games: Fly It Like You STOL It

    Steve Henry is a man who likes to get his airplane off the ground in a hurry. A big hurry. We taxied out on the 5000-foot runway and lined up with a slight tailwind to avoid staring directly into the setting sun. He held the brakes and added a touch of throttle to lift the […]

    Robinson Helicopter has delivered its 1000th R66 turbine helicopter, less than a decade after it was certified.

  • Short Final: Low Approach

    I heard the following exchange on a beautiful spring day when COVID had grounded almost everyone. Cherokee 123: “Approach, we are headed down to Okeechobee today and would like to come through the Class Bravo, and I guess we would like flight following, too … (long pause) … oh, and we would like to make […]
