Half Moon Bay – Big Wave Project Approved by City Supervisors

Half_Moon_Bay_Airport_graphicIn a disappointing vote, the Big Wave Project was passed by San Mateo Cnty Board of Supervisors. Next step is a review the Coastal Commission.  Since it appears that the City Supervisors are ignoring the inappropriate land usage next to the Half Moon Bay Airport. – perhaps the fact that it is in a Tsunami Zone will insure that someone makes the appropriate decision which is to vote this location down.

How to Stay Safe in Unfamiliar Aircraft

New AC Advises Pilots on How to Stay Safe in Unfamiliar Aircraft
Experimental airplane flights represent only a small component of total general aviation (GA) flights in the United States. However, a significant number of GA fatal accidents occur in them. Many of those accidents take place when experienced pilots first fly an unfamiliar aircraft, especially when they are the second owner or pilot of an experimental amateur built aircraft. Data also shows that fatal accidents often occur when pilots with little experience in a particular type of aircraft fly in challenging conditions, such as poor weather.
