• Fly With That One Pilot Chick #5

    Author Ron Blehm knows a young woman pilot in Washington State who shares her flight training and flying adventures online and through videos.

Since the series started she has gotten her instrument and commercial ratings and so has moved on to more advanced flights. Join in to see the feedback from #4 and try the new flight here in #5.

    VSKYLABS XF-85 Project Announced

    VSKYLABS likes to take on unusual aircraft projects, and the XF-85 is certainly that. Designed in the 1940's as a "parasite fighter", the little jet would be carried by a bomber and take-off and return to bomber, without ever landing on the ground. Though the concept proved unworkable in the real world it should make for an interesting challenge for X-Plane pilots.
