AOPA Live This Week - June 20, 2013

Months of federal silence on general aviation aircraft searches by Customs and Border Protection agents have prompted a final demand for answers from AOPA, along with advice for pilots, and a plan to act if answers are not forthcoming. Also this week, a successful ditching is only half the battle: AOPA Live got our feet wet with an in-depth look at open water survival training, picking up some potentially life-saving tips and tricks. We’ll review the latest David Clark headset, a brand-new model built for comfort. Rod Machado’s regular “License to Learn” segment will explain flutter, and what that has to do with those little drain holes in aircraft control surfaces that you may have wondered about.
