The Reigle Aviator

April 2014 Edition

A monthly communiqué for the pilots of Reigle Aviation

CUB TIME

            We are excited to begin offering flight lessons in my personal original 1946 J-3 Cub. The personal airplane that became the general public's name for all small planes... The venerable Piper J-3 Cub. Take a few lessons in this bird and roll back the years with a docile light weight (731 lbs empty), 65 horsepower, no electrical system Piper Cub. Earn your tailwheel endorsement and enjoy basic "low and slow" pure fun flying. The Piper J-3 Cub first emerged from a hangar Oct. 8, 1937 and became the most popular personal airplane ever! This 1946 edition cub beauty is offered dual only for the 2014 price of $125 per hour. Definitely not 1946 pricing, but still the least expensive dual rental you'll find... and quite possibly the most fun!

            Come check it out with me, Duane Reigle.

IMC CLUB

            Our next IMC Club meeting will be on Tuesday, June 3rd, at 7:00 pm. We will have a new video scenario, and I hope to have one of our 172 aircraft un-cowled to let us see first hand the engines and systems that make our planes run. Suggestions? Let me, Marc, know!

Keep'em Flyin'

When you have to do a '180' on the runway to back taxi or line up on ray 13, try to use the whole runway width to make your turn, and keep the inside wheel turning, to avoid the extra wear that comes with 'twisting' at tire.

Instructor's Corner

ForeFlight, probably the leading EFB app for the iPad, has come out with an update, version 6. Among other enhancements, it now features a terrain profile view, allowing you to see your route and height above terrain and obstacles at a glance. Also, you could always file flight plans within the app, and now you can amend IFR flight plans after filing, as well as open and close VFR flight plans, no phone calls needed!
