A home for young pilots

Designed for aviation enthusiasts and pilots between the ages of 13 and 25, Young Pilots USA emphasizes the social aspect of flying, with the goal of retaining young pilots during flight training and in the early stages of their careers.

Meet Amelia in her hometown

The new Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum will unveil a bronze statue of the famous pilot, as well as a way to "Meet Amelia."

New program boost maintenance apprenticeships

"The current lack of certificated aircraft mechanics has prompted many maintenance organizations to hire uncertificated mechanics to work side-by-side with experienced mechanics to gain the hands-on experience required to test for the FAA Airframe and Powerplant certificate. The goal is for the apprentice to be ‘test ready’ at the end of the program."


Eliminate cockpit clutter

"Staying organized can be a hard task in today’s electronic cockpit," says Sporty’s Director of Aviation Products and Marketing Doug Ranly. "That’s why we designed these Flight Gear organizers to keep batteries, plugs, and cables protected and easily accessible."

Leak leads to fuel starvation

Fuel starvation due to a fuel system leak, which resulted in a loss of engine power and the subsequent forced landing on unsuitable terrain.
