Micro Aerodynamics vortex generators With so many modifications to aircraft available to help you pursue higher and faster performance, it's refreshing to explore what you can do to make the bottom of the flight envelope a more pleasant experience. Vortex generators (VGs) are well known in twin-engine circles, where they add so much controllability at slow speeds that VMC (minimum control airspeed) can be reduced substantially — greatly increasing safety.

Gulfstream's G-II is now entering the "affordable" arena To many pilots, the Gulfstream II is about the sexiest, most graceful jet on the planet.

An instructor's view of student pilot aptitudes For every student pilot sizing up a flight instructor there is a flight instructor assessing the student's prospects of success. Surprised that the sizing-up process could be a two-way street? Look at it this way: As a CFI gains experience and works with many different personalities over thousands of flight hours, certain traits emerge that provide early clues about whether training an individual prospect will be easy and fun or difficult and frustrating.
