The FAA recently added a new feature to its online medical application system, MedXPress, that allows pilots to track the status of their medical certificates online throughout the application and review process. Prior to adding this new feature, pilots had to call to check their application status, or, in many cases, remain in the dark.

You'll need to modify your takeoff and landing procedures when operating from shorter runways to obtain the maximum performance from the airplane. These techniques will allow you to shorten the ground roll and also provide additional clearance over obstacles if they are present near the runway.

At the end of the day, is there a single skill that is most important? One that would, if mastered, have the greatest impact on your ability to fly safely? It may not sound as exciting as crosswind landings or short field takeoffs, but learning to precisely control your airspeed is a foundational skill that makes these other skills easier to master. It demands discipline, practice, and attention, but it rewards you with smoother, safer flights.

We’ve all been there - you feel like the harder you practice to get it right and the more repetition involved, you still plateau, or worse, you regress. Sometimes it seems like there’s nothing you can do about it but keep spinning your wheels.

Takeoff and landing are statistically the most critical phase of any flight. Slow speeds and a close proximity to the ground require the utmost diligence from any pilot. Compounding these factors is the higher concentration of aircraft that exist in the terminal area.
