Preflight those electrons

There are so many items that need attention before we fly – airplane condition, weather conditions and our own health conditions, just to name a few. But, now we have an entirely new group of items to check due to our fascination with all things electronic. And, all of the electronics that we take with us need our attention too.

Here are some things that need to be done before the electronics go into the flight bag:

  • Make sure you know how to use it. (Well, duh?) 4,000 feet and 100 knots is no time to try to figure out the buttons. (I often take a new portable device with me in the car. When my wife drives, I am navigating to some airport.)

Runway Safety Tip

When operating on an airport surface at night or even during daylight when the visibility is restricted, use extra caution. It’s harder to taxi safely and the controllers may not be able to see you. Other aircraft and vehicles will have the same problem, so stay extra alert when operating on an airport at night or in reduced visibility.
