Bendix/King by Honeywell reports that its AV8OR handheld GPS navigation unit is now available with fuel price and airport information from Airguide Publications’ “Flight Guide.”
Restaurant, hotel, taxi, and discount information is included as part of the package, which sells for a $99 annual fee. The upgrade is accessed via Internet, along with daily fuel price information updates. For more information, see the Web site. The new service plus Bendix/King’s free GoFly software can be downloaded online.
GoFly provides extended runway centerlines, a winds aloft indicator, increased color range for terrain and precipitation screens, additional weather services for those with weather access, obstacle information, increased flight log memory, a ZAON portable collision avoidance interface, and RS-232 output for non-certified autopilots.

Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
Shell announced Dec. 3 the development of an unleaded aviation fuel that will be submitted for certification as a "performance drop-in" avgas replacement.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
