AOPA’s home in Frederick, Maryland, was squarely in the path of a massive winter storm that dumped snow by the foot and left local pilots and airport crews digging out for days. This brings to mind a little news you can use this week about an easy way to find out if airports along your route are closed, and winter flying tips from the AOPA Air Safety Institute. Even Sebring, Florida was on the chilly side, though near-freezing temperatures, Friday rain and gusty wind on Saturday didn’t douse all the fun at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, which hosted drones for the first time this year. That attraction appealed to many, including visitors who arrived with parents in tow. And dancing with the Northern Lights in a para-glider.

AOPA Live brings you the latest in the light sport aircraft and drone markets from the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida. Go behind the scenes and see what it’s like to fly the light sport Rans S–20 Raven and Rans S–19LS Venterra. Plus, 15 general aviation advocacy groups have banded together to oppose changes to FAA funding and the air traffic control system, and AOPA provides an update on what’s next for third class medical reform.

The annual NTSB list of most wanted safety improvements again includes general aviation this year, and again focuses on loss of control. Much progress has been made improving safety and reducing accidents in recent years. Flying clubs do much more than to rent aircraft at lower cost, though that is often the reason that pilots join in the first place. We visited one club (among many) where the enthusiasm is infectious. How do you catch a rogue drone? Another drone with a net is one way. We’ll also look at a drone large enough to ride in that made a splash in Las Vegas.

Decades in the making and conceived on a clean sheet with revolutionary ideas, the HondaJet received FAA type certification Dec. 9. A Senate committee has approved the Pilot's Bill of Rights 2, putting third class medical reform over a major hurdle. AOPA Editor at Large Dave Hirschman and AOPA Pilot Managing Editor Sarah Deener wanted to know just how well your AOPA Sweepstakes You Can Fly Cessna 152 can spin. Only one way to find out, and you can ride along. Santa Claus can stuff a lot into a sleigh, and even into a Van's Aircraft RV-10, for that matter.

AOPA editors pitted a pair of freshly reimagined Cessna two-seaters head-to-head in a fly-off for the bantamweight trainer title. The Cessna 150 and 152 were lined up on the ramp, a coin was flipped, and the drag race began. Flight training excellence is all about the people who make it happen at schools, institutions, and airports across the country. AOPA invited the nation's best to Frederick, Maryland, to honor their achievements with the 2015 Flight Training Excellence Awards, and released a number of new resources for flying clubs, including free, online scheduling software.

Days before the holiday shopping frenzy, a task force suggested that the FAA make the drone registration requirement very broad, applying to unmanned aircraft systems large and small. Dr. Claudius Klimt wanted to expand his aviation horizons, so he found a gyrocopter, and found out what sets them apart from a pilot's perspective. Benjamin Parker served his country until multiple sclerosis ended his military career. It took another battle to make sure it didn't ground him.

Margins of Safety: Avoiding Power-On Stalls
Margins of Safety: Avoiding Power-On Stalls
8:14 min

Year after year, unintended stalls are among the leading causes of fatal aviation accidents. The "departure" or "power-on" stall is practiced during flight training, but in a controlled, coordinated scenario at a high altitude. Unexpected stalls during takeoffs or go-arounds are sudden, sharp, and frightening. At low altitude, even a brief loss of aircraft control may be unrecoverable. This video explains the differences in power-on stall training versus real-world scenarios, the aerodynamics of how stalls occur during takeoffs and go-arounds, and techniques pilots can use to prevent them.
