Study: Full-Stall Training Pays Off

Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed new simulations that they believe will help pilots to better recover when faced with an aerodynamic stall. “Part of the challenge is that pilots are often trained on simulations that take an aircraft right up to the point of aerodynamic stall but not past it,” said Peter Grant, a professor at the university’s Institute for Aerospace Studies.

Privatization Fight Continues

To no one’s surprise, those in favor of splitting air traffic control from the FAA are busy planning their next move.
