Airplane Ownership Book – Mike Busch – Product of the month

Curious about aircraft ownership?

Tired of the rental fleet shenanigans?

Are you an active pilot looking to build serious hours & cross country flights?

Check out Aircraft Ownership by Mike Busch an A&P / IA. Gain knowledge from the unique perspective from in maintenance, inspections and over 8,000 flight hours.

 

Volume 1 covers selecting, purchasing, insuring, and maintaining an aircraft. Busch emphasizes that it is the aircraft owner—not his mechanics—who bears the regulatory responsibility for airworthiness. He discusses how to choose the right mechanic or shop and how to manage the maintenance they perform. Busch dissects the much-dreaded annual inspection, and how owners can keep it from spiraling out of control. He offers guidance about the all-important post-maintenance test flight, and how to deal with an owner’s worst nightmare: a mechanical breakdown far from home.

Additional Volume coming later this year.

Rylo 360º Action Camera (Product of the month)

Found quite the cool camera today that would be great on a Drone or General Aviation Aircraft called the Rylo 360º

It has an extreme fish eye lens on each side that through software stitches together a 360º video. When watched on a smart phone or VR display the video ties to the Gyros and where ever you point your phone or VR the video goes to that direction instantly.

It also has built in image stabilization eliminating the need for gimbals.

Buy with the convenience of amazon

Here is a video taken from the Rylo 360, Move your phone around or mouse grab and move the screen to see it in action.

Here is a 360 drone video, its not done with a Rylo but gives a good idea of what you can do with it.

And from a helicopter (Manned, with full FAA blessings i’m sure) of NYNY

 

  • Includes sync cables for both iPhone and Android devices
  • Breakthrough stabilization: with breakthrough stabilization and horizon leveling automatically built in, Rylo makes your videos look like they were shot on a professional stabilization rig.
  • Front back: put yourself in the action with a picture-in-picture that shows your facial expression as you capture a moment.
  • Points: control the camera’s perspective, after-the-factor, by tapping on specific points of interest in your video. Rylo magically produces a fluidly smooth video that connects each of your points.
  • Time-lapse: create moving time-lapse videos by speeding up Rylo’ S stabilized video. Control how fast you want your video to play (up to 16x normal speed) and make professional-looking time lapse
