for November, 2011
On a beautiful sunny morning, while his instructor, Jim Grant, waited below, William Lo made three great take offs and landings in Citabria N1806G. William is the latest AeroDynamic Aviation student to fly solo!
Congratulations to William and Jim!
Well done Andy, and thanks also go to AeroDynamic Instructor Erik, with help also from Rich, Sergey and Dick.
Andy escaped before we could pose him in front of the plane, so here’s a picture of him holding the Bronze Lindy he captured at Oshkosh.
We have a brand new certified Private Pilot!
Congratulations to Stephane Dahan, who passed his checkride with Examiner Sherry Diamond, on a fine Tuesday morning in Citabria 5032G.
Well done Stephane, and also well done to his AeroDynamic instructor Mark Guerrero.
Congratulations to Matt Claudius, who took to the skies on his own for the first time on November 20, 2011.
While his watchful CFI, Rich Digrazzi, paced the ramp, Matt took Citabria 9091L for three successful takeoffs and landings.”
Congratulations to Lee Barker who successfully added a tailwheel endorsement to his logbook. Well done Lee and AeroDynamic Instructor Mark Guerrero.
Congratulations Mark, and well done also to AeroDynamic instructors Jen Delp-Mallet and Erik Schmidt.
And here is the video of Mark’s first landing. We really need to teach our CFIs to use the zoom settings 😉 , but it is beautiful anyway:
The following NOTAM has been circulated by the FAA:
!FDC 1/4311 ZLA FI/T … SPECIAL NOTICE … SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COASTLINE. EFFECTIVE 1111141730-1111180130 UTC. AIRCRAFT OPERATORS ARE ADVISED THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE WILL BE CONDUCTING TESTING IN THE WARNING AREAS ADJACENT TO THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COASTLINE. AFTER A REVIEW OF THE IMPACTED AREAS AND THE DOD OPERATIONS BEING CONDUCTED, ANALYSIS INDICATES A LOW LIKELIHOOD OF IMPACT TO AVIATION. HOWEVER, IN THE INTEREST OF FLIGHT SAFETY, PILOTS/FLIGHT CREW MEMBERS EXPERIENCING ANOMALIES TO ANY FLIGHT DECK SYSTEM, IN PARTICULAR TCAS, SHOULD REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY TO ATC. FAA HEADQUARTERS, AIR TRAFFIC SYSTEMS OPERATIONS SECURITY, 202-493-5107, IS THE FAA COORDINATION FACILITY.
What does it mean? Sounds like some sort of electronic devices are going to be tested and there may be intereference with cockpit systems. The reference to TCAS suggests that they will be using something to do with radar.
Be careful up there!
