Leonardo would have been proud.

I’ve always marveled at Leonardo da Vinci’s inventions: the anemometer, giant crossbow, cannon, aqualung, ornithopter, parachute, and the helical air screw, just to name a few. Being in aviation though, the ornithopter (flying machine) and helical air screw (early helicopter) are my favorites. Of course, if you design an airplane and a helicopter I guess inventing the parachute was the natural next step.

The ABC’s of ADAHRS OR Great things do come in small packages.

Aviation loves acronyms. Take ADAHRS for example: everyone has read about it, but few really know what it is or the story behind it. Today’s Air Data, Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (ADAHRS) are true marvels of technology. And their pinpoint accuracy, reliability and compact size is at the center of many of today’s most advanced avionics systems.

Precise Performance. Proven Experience. Personalized Attention.

I normally don’t write much about Genesys Aerosystems’ “business” happenings in my blogs, but sometimes even I have to break my own rules. You see we recently celebrated our second anniversary.

Things that go bump in the flight. Part 1.

If there’s one thing that most pilots do not equate with summer time trips its dealing with single-pilot IFR operations. IFR in winter: sure. IFR on a sunny summer’s day: not so much. In fact, while I have no concrete data to prove it, I’d say that pilots flying in the summer will encounter more “pop-up” IFR conditions than they will in the winter.

Take George on vacation with you.

Based on your collective responses, one of the most popular blogs I’ve written was the recent posting that introduced you to George; aka, your autopilot and highlighted the many ways “he” can help make your flying safer and more relaxed.

My Pre-game Planning for the Super Bowl of Aviation!

Football fans have the Super Bowl. “Nerds” have Comic-Con. NASCAR has the Daytona 500.Us airplane geeks have Oshkosh AirVenture. And geeked-up is just what I am about my annual visit to Oshkosh. Every year I get to attend all the major aviation events, but by far Oshkosh is my favorite. And it’s probably yours too.

It’s Summer Time and the Weather is Fine ... for Flying

If you’re a pilot, no doubt summertime is your favorite time of the year. Between flying off to attend air shows, or visiting family and friends, or taking off on some great airborne vacation adventure, or taking your kids off to college, or earning a new rating, or whatever – there are more reasons to fly this summer than there are days left until the autumnal equinox.

Hobbits and Helicopters

I confess: I’m a big fan of the Lord of the Rings movies. While J.R. Tolkien’s story is great, the scenery around New Zealand is truly breathtaking. But, you’re asking yourself what does this have to do with avionics?
