Fascination with flight started way back before the Wright Brothers, and others like them, took to flight. A wide variety of airshows around the world continue to attract large and very diverse crowds. More than any other sport, aeroplanes and flying displays attract people from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds and faiths.

This issue of PlaneTalk contains this and other interesting stories.

The Command Instrument Rating is one of the most
challenging and rewarding qualifications in Aviation.
This qualification enables you to fly in and out of cloud and above the weather safely and
comfortably. Sounds simple but it’s true. The Instrument rating makes you a better VFR
pilot as far as your respect of the weather is concerned and how flying in controlled airspace gives you a better option for transiting from one city to another.
