November 2012 Readback


2013 FAR/AIM

ASA's 2013 FAR/AIM is now available in several formats, including softcover book, eBook and as an Apple app. It includes the most current regulations, compiled throughout the year. Any changes from the previous edition are marked for quick reference, and there's a combined FAR and AIM index at the back of the book. The Aeronautical Information Manual has been reformatted for greater readability. Contact:

RVSM Course

Gleim's newest online training program, the Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums (RVSM) Training course, is designed for pilots who operate in RVSM airspace (between FL290 and FL410). It's three hours long and divided into 14 interactive study units that address FAA operating requirements and provide real-world examples and advice on safe operating practices. Contact:

Microfiber Towels

Scheyden Precision Eyewear has launched a range of microfiber Cabin and Panel towels engineered for spotless, scratch-free cleaning of aircraft exteriors and instrumentation. Measuring 16x24 inches, the Cabin Towel is sized for cleaning the leading edge, windshield or other external portions of an airplane. Slightly smaller at 8x12 inches, the Panel Towel is for in-cabin use to clean cockpit instruments, electronic devices, sunglasses and other pilot gear. Both can be hand or machine washed in cold water. Contact:

Heads-Up Device

Aircraft Spruce & Specialty is the first United States dealer for PAT Avionics' new heads-up device (HUD), G-HULP, which was developed and is manufactured in Milan, Italy. HUD data is projected by laser onto a glass mounted on a flexible frame, and provides information on altitude, heading and airspeed while providing course data on a transparent screen in front of the pilot. It can work in sync with Dynon Avionics SkyView or can function as a standalone device. The G-HULP is designed to function in roll rates up to 300 degrees/second, at altitudes to 20,000 feet, speeds up to 243 knots and in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C. Contact: and
