King Schools International Operations OverviewKing Schools is releasing its 24th course targeting the needs of turbine-powered, professional and owner-flown operators. The pro series of courses include everything a pilot needs to know, from initial transition to jets and high-altitude flying, to certificate courses for operations such as RVSM, RNP, MNPS, P-RNAV, International Operations and Part 135 initial and recurrent pilot training. "With our new International Operations Overview course, you'll learn practical how-to information that will prepare you for the differences," commented John King. "You'll know what you don't know, so you won't be surprised by regulatory requirements, and will know how to get fully prepared for your international flight," added Martha King.

Unusual Attitude TrainingStallion 51, the Kissimmee, Fla.,-based organization, is offering a new program, UAT (Unusual Attitude Training) in a specially equipped L-39 turbojet. "Our new Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Program definitely raises the bar even higher for pilots who fly for a living and under all types of conditions," said Lee Lauderback, Stallion 51's president. "We now have a comprehensive program that covers all areas of prevention, recognition and recovery from unusual attitudes of flying." The newly formed UAT Company is located within Stallion 51's facility at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. Its purpose is to train pilots to recognize and respond accurately and quickly before the situation progresses into one from which they may be unable to recover. Visit www.stallion51.com.
New Mid-Continent Standby DisplayMid-Continent Instruments and Avionics introduced the MD302 Standby Attitude Module (SAM), a 2x5-inch self-contained, solid-state instrument that provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information to the pilot during normal operation or in the case of primary instrument failure. SAM is designed to fit in less panel space than a standard set of two-inch mechanical attitude, altitude and airspeed indicators. Its two-screen display features selectable horizontal and vertical orientation. The MD302 SAM is designed to interface seamlessly with most primary avionics systems and is capable of synchronizing data, such as barometric pressures from standard ARINC outputs.
