Explore The Human Factors Of Flying

With the Medical Handbook for Pilots AC discontinued, this is the only printed resource available with a collection of applicable FAA and Civil Aerospace Medical Institute documents, articles and reports.

A New Way To Recycle, Reuse
Instead of simply tossing out your empty beer and soda cans, consider doing something more productive: construct model airplanes with the potential to fly. B.C. Air Originals will get you started with construction plans and videos (choose from 20 models). The company also provides online builder support; you supply the empty cans. The model airplanes make great gifts and decorations. Contact: B.C. Air Originals, (406) 443-3941,

Make The Right Seat As Organized As The Left
Sporty’s Copilot Organizer will keep solo pilots organized. Secure it to an open seat with the included straps, then fill the holders and pockets with all the essentials. Dedicated pockets keep everything organized, and a large main compartment stores larger items. Postflight, the organizer transforms into a flight bag. Contact: Sporty’s, (800) SPORTYS,
