Video Your Flight

The Nflightcam Plus is an easy-to-use video camera that offers full 1080p HD video and allows you to share your passion for flight with others, from your landing at a unique airport, a cross-country adventure or an aerobatic flight. It's also great for flight training: Students can quickly review a flight lesson, including all cockpit audio and ATC transmissions, during a post-flight briefing with their instructor. The NFlightcam comes with a tough aluminum case, which is waterproof to one meter, and weighs less than six ounces. The camera lens can be rotated to mount the camera at any angle, and dual lasers as well as an iPhone app allow for precise alignment. The camera comes with software to edit and share your video with friends. Contact: www.sportys.com.

Learn From Barry Schiff

With more than four hours of instruction, Barry Schiff's three-disk DVD series Proficient Flying, explains more of the "how" and "why" rather than just the "what." With each topic, ranging from takeoff techniques and weight-and-balance to pitot-static pitfalls and engine operating hints, Schiff presents information at an intuitive level, often taking the viewer along in the cockpit to demonstrate concepts. Proficient Flying has something for everyone, whether you're a student just starting up, or an accomplished aviator thinking about getting that seaplane rating or just wanting to refine your slip technique. In addition to the full DVD set, 18 individual subject segments are available for download. Contact: www.asa2fly.com/profly.

Letters From My Son

Rooted in Texas, the adventures of Early Willson Junior immerse the reader in life during the depression, the beginnings of World War II and society goings-on. A journey takes a simple boy from Texas to the big city of New York to rub elbows with Dorothy Lamour and Cab Calloway, on to the historic field from which Howard Hughes and Amelia Earhart soared into record books, and finally across the ocean to "give his all" in World War II with Britain's Royal Air Force.
