App DescriptionThis issue, LOOP flies the new turbocharged Airvan GA8. The aircraft, which has always been a firm favourite at LOOP, now has better performance ability in hot & high conditions. Read what Dave Calderwood thinks about the updated Airvan.
For those with an adventurous spirit we encourage you to read the feature on Claude Meunier, a globetrotting pilot who created the Earthrounders website and community. It’s a great starting place if you’re looking for that one big trip.
There’s a wide range of news in this issue. The FAA-conforming Cirrus jet flies for the first time, the new Instrument Ratings for Europe, Patty Wagstaff’s new precision flying school, Erik Lindbergh following in his grandfather’s footsteps – but with a twist, and much more.
Flight Gear looks at Garmin’s new G3X Touch for homebuilders, Jeppesen who gets the iPad mini approved for use in the cockpit, and a bed all flyers would love to own.
There’s Bob Davy’s and Dave Calderwood’s take on the aviation world. Plus Alan talks about the human brain and how millions of years of evolution hasn’t done anything to help an aerobatic pilot.
We have a chat with the second man ever to walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin. He talks about the first time he flew solo in an aircraft and how it changed his whole life. Plane Crazy this month is appropriately titled as we talk to André Boyer about his World Record attempt at flying an aircraft blindfolded.
There are videos of the Airvan and André, and since they’re ‘in-app’ there's no need to be connected to the internet to watch them.
And, as always, it’s completely free to download the app and every issue is free of charge as well!
